Dear NFT enthusiast,
Despite the market’s bearish sentiments, NFTs have continued their glorious march towards world domination. This week finds us with the regular serving of adoption news, but with a bit of a twist. First is this article on how a Genomics company is exploring NFTs in hopes of advancing precision medicine.
From the hospitality angle, some hotels are using NFTs to create a StubHub for lodging reservations. NFTs are also being used to raise capital to buy golf courses or land, giving token buyers a stake in the projects.
But the star of the week is this: verified members of CityDAO were able to claim a portion of an NFT land in Wyoming which grants land governance and access rights to the holders. In explaining the reason why, the DAO had this to say,
The Parcel 0 experiment is a means to prove the concept of creating wrappers for traditional rights allocations related to property.
Despite these varied cases of adoption, we still maintain that this is just the beginning. NFTs will conquer the world.
Thank you for reading and have a great week.

Thanks for the recommendation, I was really interested. I've been playing NFT games for a while now and I can't imagine a better game than this format. The graphics are beautiful, the gameplay is simple yet challenging to master, and there is always something new to do and earn in the game. The communities of these games are also some of the best I have ever encountered-they are friendly and responsive. https://iwanta.tech/
