Every day there are dozens of news items related to the world of non-fungible tokens (NFT) and metaverse, so today we’ve decided to summarize all the latest news involving Pioneer, The Sandbox metaverse, OpenSea’s marketplace records and the famous director of Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino.

Pioneer Media Holdings, a company that is investing in NFTs, gaming and eSports announced the acquisition of NGMI Labs for $7 million to further enter the world of DAOs and Web 3.

Pulp Fiction NFTs

Some time ago, Quentin Tarantino decided to auction off the NFTs from his famous film Pulp Fiction, but Miramax, the film’s production company, decided to sue him for copyright infringement.

Today, however, the director has decided to continue with his plan to put the film’s NFTs up for sale on the Secret Network platform and no longer on OpenSea.

On this marketplace, the sale of the film’s cut and unedited scenes in the form of non-fungible tokens will continue.
