NTFs Still Making News

Though their popularity has somewhat decreased, NFTs are far from forgotten: they can – and do – still make a lot of noise. 

Claire Elise Boucher, known as Grimes, recently said that she earned around $6 million from her NFT collection – more money than she has made across her entire music career. 

Crypto exchange Coinbase kicked off the multi-week Onchain Summer event to celebrate the launch of its much-anticipated Layer 2 network Base. Major projects, decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), as well as the soft drink giant Coca-Cola, joined the festival, providing an opportunity for the users to get celebratory NFTs. 

Beeple, the creator of a $69 million non-fungible token (NFT), bought his very first profile-picture (PFP) NFT: CryptoPunk #4593 for ETH 113.69 ($208,463). 

Also, Game4Ukraine, a charity soccer match announced by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, held on August 5, was raising funds via the sale of customizable jersey NFT artwork through Cheeer, the licensed partner of the match.

All of this (and more) happened in just the first few days of August, so it’s safe to say that NFTs are here to stay.
