Hello
It seems like the articles I've had discussing NFTs/crypto have been fairly anti-NFTs/crypto. That also happens to line up with how I view them. I'm very aware of my bias though, and haven't come across any articles arguing their positives that I thought were decent enough to feature. If you have, share them with me and maybe they'll be featured. I'm all for having a balanced view of something.
Anyway, last issue of the week. Hope you have another lovely weekend!
