🪂 Airdrop Alert: The Metaplex Genesis Developer NFT launches on Galxe

An NFT from Metaplex for those building the future of the internet is launching today on Galxe.

It’s been an incredible year for Metaplex. The protocol on a mission to empower independent artists and creators has provided NFT tools to over 95k projects and facilitated nearly $2.6B in sales. With this launch, we celebrate the collaborative work of developers who’ve laid the groundwork for NFT infrastructure on Solana with their contributions to the Metaplex Open Source Libraries.
