The Rabbit Hole #013

The one about NBA Top Shot

I got caught up in Top Shot mania this week. I even joined a drop (unsuccessfully). I guess I wasn’t alone. According to CryptoSlam, they’ve traded over $131mm in the last 7 days.

I included some more links in Explore to send you down the NFT rabbit hole.

✏ Thought of the Week

Do you know Laszlo Hanyecz?

He’s the man who bought the most expensive pizza in history. $200mm in today’s dollars.

(tl;dr: 10,000 BTC in 2010 from Papa John’s)

Until next week.
