Sep 24, 20212 min read

Dear Bankless Nation,

Twitter is exploring NFTs further. TIME Magazine’s NFT drop sold out in seconds. Snoop Dogg is apparently a huge NFT collector. China just banned crypto … again.

Another regular week in NFT Land, right? 😄

Drama, excitement, and intrigue abounds, so just remember to keep on top of your rest and relaxation so you can stay fresh for the future. Us creatives and builders are running a marathon here after all, not a sprint!

Thanks kindly for reading, stay creative, and have a great weekend per usual ✌️
