Someone Just Received $8.4M from Blur’s Most Recent Airdrop
It's time to BLAST OFF. I just received 22851000 $BLUR from @blur_io's Season 2 drop. Season 3 starts NOW and is powered by @Blast_L2, the only L2 with native yield backed by Paradigm and Standard Crypto.

The BLUR tokens, initially valued at about $7.3 million when claimed by Hanwe, have experienced an increase in value, underscoring the dynamic nature of the NFT market.
Hanwe was awarded the largest portion of the 300 million BLUR tokens designated for Season 2 rewards, reflecting their significant engagement and contribution to Blur's ecosystem.
Surpassing OpenSea in NFT trading volume, Blur's success is attributed to its unique incentive model.
The platform is now gearing up for Season 3 and has welcomed its new Ethereum layer-2 network, Blast, for additional reward mechanisms and airdrops.
DeGods’ Token ‘DUST’ Rapidly Spikes Following GTA Rumors
DUST, DeGods’ native token, saw its price jump from $0.62 to almost $0.80 on unfounded rumors of its inclusion in the new Grand Theft Auto (GTA) game.
DeGods just changed their banner to a GTA-inspired landscape with "the city in the cloud" written in the corner (in GTA font)

The new GTA trailer is coming out in early December ... this is not a coincidence.

The rumor that GTA 6 would include DUST, fueled by the VP of Rockstar Games following DeGods and their use of the GTA font on Twitter, was rapidly debunked.
DUST serves as a utility and governance token on Ethereum and Solana, originally awarded to those who staked their DeGods NFTs.
Despite a bearish crypto market, DUST drew attention due to these rumors, showcasing how speculative narratives can influence token prices temporarily.
After DeGods refuted the rumor, DUST's price fell to $0.66, an 8% increase from its starting point, raising questions about the effectiveness of using cultural references for crypto marketing.
