What You Missed This Weekend
“The Merge”, a project by @muratpak, exploded this weekend after its initial release on Thursday. These dynamic NFTs accumulate mass over time and are available exclusively on Nifty Gateway. Total sales have surpassed $100 million with over 26,000 unique collectors. As described by the official Nifty Gateway Twitter account, the project “just achieved the largest-ever art sale by a living creator”.
Flower Girls, a 10,000-edition collection created by Varvara Alay, sold out in 30 minutes on Saturday. The portrait-styles NFTs were generated from over 950 hand-drawn elements by Alay, who is determined to give back with his earnings. Twenty percent of primary and secondary sales profits will be donated to a variety of children’s charities. Known NFT enthusiast @garyvee bought in and tweeted in support of the project, further adding to the hype.
