A record-setting week for Axie Infinity, a record-breaking week for OpenSea, and RMRK breaks Kusama a second time

NFT Review is a weekly newsletter covering NFTs in the Web3 ecosystem on Polkadot’s side of the woods. The newsletter is put together by Bruno Škvorc and gbaci.

Looking for a primer on NFTs? This should be the last introduction you’ll ever need.

Dear NFT enthusiast,

Last week, we reported that hip hop mogul Jay Z had caught the NFT bug, selling his first NFT for $139,000 at Sothebys. This week, it’s Katy Perry who has joined the fun. The pop superstar announced that she will be dropping an NFT collection this year.

At this point, it is safe to say that (1) creators love NFTs and (2) we haven’t scratched the surface of NFT penetration into creator-fan relationships. We envision a future where every creator with a following will have an NFT-based relationship with their hardcore fans.

To guide us towards this future of freedom for creators, the builders are hard at work. Catch some of the latest updates from the NFT frontlines below, feauring a record-setting week for Axie Infinity, a record-breaking week for OpenSea, and RMRK breaking Kusama a second time.

Thank you for reading and have a great week.
