NFT Business News

NFT-Native Apes

The growth of licensing intellectual property that first saw light in NFT Land is really exciting. I began to outline some of the obvious participants in an earlier newsletter including Yuga Labs and Bored Ape Yacht Club.

Instagram NFTs

I guess I was right about Facebook getting into NFTs via Instagram. How it plays out remains to be seen. I’m kind of wondering if this move is possible because of the negative government response to Meta’s crypto project. It certainly gives Zuckerberg reason to consider the possibilities for the realms he controls. And, if Instagram works, Facebook could well follow.


Dcentral’s annual NFTCON takes place online, March 22–24. Interesting lineup of speakers.

Nansen is doing a lot of interesting things for NFT investors. They recently launched NFT Indexes after previously introducing NFT Rarity Dashboards.

NFTs in Japan

Softbank’s Z Holdings, based in Japan, has announced plans to launch an NFT Marketplace in the spring in 180 countries. It may be introduced through the Line messaging app.

Bandsintown Adds NFTs

NFT Research

NonFungible’s Yearly Report on NFTs analyzing 2021 NFT action is now available.
