Crypto is softer again today as equity markets don’t hold up from the fake euphoria earlier this week. Bitcoin is down -1% to $16.8k while Ethereum is -2.5% to $1230. SBF of FTX has hired Mark Cohen as his lawyer, the same lawyer who represented Ghislaine Maxwell in her sex-trafficking trial. Fir Tree is suing Grayscale to get the details behind GBTC as it trades at a 43% discount to BTC spot. Ledger releases their next-gen hardware wallet called “Ledger Stax”, which is designed by one of the designers of the iPod.

NFT volumes are healthy today with $20M in total turnover. ETH-NFTs are $17M, Solana-NFTs are $2M. Azuki is the most popular with $2M trading as its new PBT (Physical Backed Tokens) is the latest buzz on NFT Twitter. MAYC is pumping now, as the floor price on OpenSea approached 14.5 ETH — $1.8M traded on the day. Tennis Art is a new project, with $1.4M in volumes on its debut. Gigamart is a new NFT marketplace launched in part by Elliotrades on Twitter — zero fees, with tons of useful features for NFT trades, including an airdrop notification and trader chat box (like the good old days on Bitmex!).
