Lots of news every day from the world of Non Fungible Tokens (NFT) and art on the blockchain.
NFT news: Linkin Park entering the crypto world?
Yesterday, the BoringStone.com project was announced, a journal in the form of NFTs that collects the most important stories from the metaverse industry. It is a series of 10,000 collectables that resemble the covers of the famous music magazine Rolling Stone.
At the time of writing this article, minting is underway on the project site and 6,798 copies have been sold for 0.04 ETH (about $140) though the gas turns out to cost 0.02 ETH, so another $70. By minting an NFT on the site, you randomly receive an NFT that might be more or less rare.
A second market is already present on OpenSea with a floor price of 0.03 ETH.
The project was from the NFT.FAMILY incubator owned by Tim Draper’s Draper Goren Holm. Mike Shinoda, lead singer of Linkin Park, was also present during the project’s launch event.
