Crypto markets are quiet over the weekend, with Bitcoin stuck at $16.9k and Ethereum at $1260. Ryan Selkis of Messari has been suspended on Twitter and has moved over to Lens Protocol — some speculate the suspension came from Messari’s association with FTX. NFT volumes remain strong over the weekend, with another day above the $30M mark. ETH-NFTs sit at $26M and Solana-NFTs are at $4M. The Captainz makes its debut and posts $8M in secondary turnover. Azuki has $2M in volume, while MAYC and BAYC combined are $3M.
