Upcoming drops: 29 May – 4 June
Let’s face it: the NFT space is moving very quickly. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFT might as well be a month IRL.
Don’t get us wrong – the more people on board the space, the better. But with the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.
Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you as we compile a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look for this week.
