Top NFT News of the Week:

  • China to Launch NFT Platform: China has been against many crypto projects unless they have control over them. But now, they are launching their state-backed NFT marketplace. This makes sense for china as they want to capitalize on the existing blockchain (and NFTs) technology while having control. Therefore, they plan to launch and create their own 'Digital Collectibles' and Non-Fungible Rights (NFR) platform. Payments with cryptocurrencies will not be allowed. Instead, users must use fiat to buy the collectibles and pay platform fees.

  • Yuga Labs Builds Momentum with Jimmy The Monkey Project: Bored Apes and the whole Yuga Labs ecosystem increased in price in the last week for one main reason: The Trial of Jimmy the Monkey, an interactive event for MAYC and BAYC holders. So far, it’s been like a puzzle with hidden hints. The goal is to find a ‘magic key’. All known information is available through the official website where they release teasers every other week. The next event will take place on January 11, which will be a preparation for a Mint held on January 18. The art reveal of the mint will be on February 8. And it looks like it will be an ongoing narrative for the next couple of months. We don’t know much else yet, but based on the track history of Yuga Labs, there’s always been significant value in their projects and announcements.
