Dear Bankless Nation,

I’ll be taking the last week of the year off like I did in 2021, so this is the final Metaversal of 2022!

To be sure, the past 12 months have made for a crazy ride, with both setbacks and advances aplenty around the crypto ecosystem depending on where you look.

In considering everything that’s happened, one of my overriding takeaways from 2022 is that the NFT space is now quantitatively and qualitatively teeming with compelling apps and projects like never before.

This progress will keep snowballing into bigger advances!

We NFTers really have so much to be excited about heading into the new year, but in the meantime I hope you all have a safe and relaxing holiday season with your loved ones.

For now, let’s catch you up on the past week’s NFT headlines in this EOY Friday recap — thanks for reading everyone, happy holidays ✌️🎄
