Ethereum NFTs Thrive - A Look at the Latest Trading Boom

Ethereum NFT trading volume hits a yearly high, marking a significant uptick in market activity. 🎉

  • Pudgy Penguins, third in market cap, challenges Bored Ape for the second spot, trailing CryptoPunks.

  • The popularity of Pudgy Penguins links to its Pudgy World game for Apple Vision Pro, contrasting Yuga Labs' focus on the Otherside metaverse expansion.

  • Despite higher trading volume, Ethereum NFT minting rates have stayed stable, indicating market excitement stems from trading existing NFTs, not minting new ones.

Yuga Labs Criticized for Excessive Gas Fees on Otherside NFTs

Following an extremely successful week, Yuga Labs finds itself in the midst of backlash following a problematic NFT mint in the Otherside metaverse.

  • Ethereum gas fees are causing frustration among players trying to claim free ‘Loot’ NFTs.

  • To chill the air, Yuga attempted to appease the community with a free ‘Catalyst’ offer, which was met with criticism. 👇

  • The community’s pushback has led to Yuga fully reimbursing all gas fees incurred by players.

  • Questions are also arising about Yuga's reliance on the costly Ethereum mainnet.
