Dear Bankless Nation,

Is the worst of the crypto shakeout that started last year behind us?

Who knows, but one thing’s for certain: there is a surging sense of optimism in the NFT ecosystem right now.

Indeed, more and more people think the bottom’s in, and activity is picking up across the board. The number of NFT traders, the number of NFT trades, NFT volume stats — presently all these metrics are markedly uptrending.

We’re so back, then?

We’ll have to see how the months ahead unfold, but things are unquestionably feeling more bullish lately. For now let’s recap the past week, as always thanks for reading everyone and have a great weekend! ✌️
