gm Mint nation - happy Sunday! If you’re new here, welcome. 🤗
Every Sunday, we issue ‘Mint TLDR,’ where we focus on our favorite weekly stories around NFTs, social tokens, and DAOs.
We’ve curated the juiciest headlines of the week in an easily digestible format for you to enjoy with your Sunday coffee.
👇 Let’s dive in!👇
🎙 New Podcast Episode
Mint Season 4 episode 27 welcomes Ben Lakoff, co-founder of Charged Particles, which is a new protocol that lets you put digital assets inside your NFTs. Now, ordinary NFTs (think neutral molecules) can contain a digital "charge" inside — ERC20, ERC721 or ERC1155 — giving you the unprecedented power to create nested NFTs.
In this episode, we discuss how creators can tap into the variety of use cases presented by dynamic NFTs and their upcoming NFT drop, Particlon.
I hope you enjoy our conversation.
