Metaversal is a Bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs, virtual worlds, & collectibles
Dear Bankless Nation,
We’ve had NFT diehards for years.
Yet 2021 was the year where many people, both in the wider cryptoeconomy and in the mainstream, started seriously considering the possibilities of NFTs.
That’s why lately we’ve been seeing waves of individuals and institutions flocking to experiment with these digital objects. Out here on the next great cultural frontier, there’s a sense of open possibility that serves as a beacon to pioneers around the world.
We are these new pioneers. We’re 21st-century metaversal explorers, and our adventures are truly only just beginning. You’ll see.
