The Nightly Mint: Daily NFT Recap

The Nightly Mint: Daily NFT Recap

Another day, another TV show headed to mint. Meanwhile, there’s another ecommerce conglomerate who is seemingly bulllish on NFTs. It’s another daily recap of all things NFTs.
The Nightly Mint
Latest Mint: American Idol
In yesterday’s ‘Nightly Mint,’ we covered television channel AMC’s new ‘The Walking Dead‘ NFTs that went to listing. Today it’s ‘American Idol,’ who have partnered with ThetaDrop to release new “predictive” NFTs to celebrate the 20th season of the long-running pop culture TV franchise. Card packs will be available for $99; collectors who hold NFTs of the artists that remain through elimination rounds will receive airdrops. Regardless of how you feel about the show, it is admittedly a pretty damn cool way to engage with fans and viewers – and one that we haven’t really seen executed thus far.

Amazon CEO Sees An Optimistic Future For NFTs
Amazon CEO Andy Jassy has had plenty of uphill climbs in his short tenure replacing the long-time Bezos. Between inconsistent costs of shipping, looming challenges around unionization, and plenty more – Jassy found time to talk crypto today, as he elaborated that the company will not be accepting cryptocurrency as payment anytime soon. However, Jassy added that “but I do believe over time that you’ll see crypto become bigger,” and didn’t rule out NFTs, saying that “I think it’s possible down the road on the platform.”
The ‘Minty Fresh’ Take
We encourage you to take a moment to breathe and leave ‘utility’ out of your NFT jargon. Just for a moment.
