Dear Bankless Nation,

I’ll be off next week, so this is the final Metaversal of 2021! Wow!

What an incredible year it’s been for the NFT ecosystem. We’ve seen so many advances and innovations unfold here over the last 12 months, thus we’re entering 2022 with tons of momentum in all directions.

As builders and dreamers we’ve got lots to be thankful for and much to look forward to. For now, take these final days of the year to relax, recharge, and enjoy the company of your loved ones.

Lastly, thanks so much for your readership! I’m really excited to write for you again in 2022, but in the meantime be well, safe travels, and stay creative 🎨
