Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.
Don’t get us wrong — the more people onboarded into the space, the merrier. But because of 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 put together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.
What: 30 editions
When: December 27 @ 11 a.m. ET
Why: Celebrated colorblind artist Eric Friedensohn (known professionally as Efdot) released his final edition drop of the year with “Interconnected.” Considering his expansive catalog of past analog and digital art projects, not to mention collaborations with big-name brands like Apple and Nike propelling his name forward, this latest offering closes out yet another fruitful chapter in Friedensohn’s career. While all 30 NFTs sold out quickly, Interconnected is now available on secondary.
