Somewhat of a firmer start to the year today with Bitcoin up +1% to $16.7k and Ethereum up +2% to $1215. The Winklevoss twins have sent a letter to Barry Silbert on Twitter asking for his cooperation in resolving the $900M debt to Gemini from Genesis (DCG). They request he publicly commit to this by next week, January 8th:

NFT volumes are basically the same as yesterday, hovering around $18M. ETH-NFTs are $13M while Solana-NFTs are $4M. ImmutableX has a respectable $500k in turnover thanks to Gods Unchained. BAYC and MAYC are on top with a combined $3M volume. DeGod sneaks into third with $900k in volume with 91 sellers — a tick-up in the number of unique sellers on the day. y00t and Azuki round out the top five with $700k each.
