The winning projects will receive a $15,000 award. Yuga Labs announces that the council and community will work closely with each other and help to advance various initiatives.
During 2022, more than 6,000 trade names were registered in the US in the NFT system. Most large companies create conceptual mechanisms for high-quality interaction with their own customers. Department of Advocates by Michael Kondoudis has presented material, based on which from 01/01/2022 to 09/30/2022 6,000 nfts were recorded in the US.
In 2021, only 2,140 NFTs were issued in the United States, which is almost 3 times lower than was recorded for 9 months of 2022.
Experts emphasize that since the beginning of March 2022, a decrease has been in interest in investments in the oil and gas industry. For example, the number of sales on the Opensea platform fell by approximately 60% in the 3rd quarter of 2022, compared to the previous reporting period.
