You might have heard that Twitter launched NFT profile pictures recently (though it’s still working to enable fully on-chain NFTs). Now Reddit is testing a similar feature.

Updates like this are fodder for those in the right-clicker camp, but the NFT ecosystem grows almost daily.

A new launch today helps art connoisseurs make a bigger impact than profile pics. Letsmint just debuted its NFT crowdfunding platform. Maker Darina Lysachkina explained that the goal is to provide “essential launching conditions” for artists, including finances, an audience, and technical tools.

We’ve also written a lot about how makers are using NFTs to enable member organizations to engage meaningfully with each other and brands. The latest headlines in this space merge real-life experience with blockchain tech.

  • Moonpay just dropped a plug-and-play service companies can use to give customers a streamlined way to buy and sell NFTs using a credit card.

Metaverses like Decentraland and The Sandbox have linked digital property to NFTs and established fixed quantities of land, opening the doors for people to pay hefty sums of crypto for “a 116-parcel estate in the heart of Decentraland’s Fashion Street district.”

There are so many more entry points into this space than we had even 6 months ago. Even if you’re not that into art, Poolsuite's vibes or Decentraland house parties may be your gateway into web3. But if you are...
