Not-So-Fungible Weekly #9
Or should I say, “Unique Token Weekly”
Whoa, we had tons of non-fungible news this week! I’m sure you didn’t have time to catch it all, so I’ve rounded it up for you here. Apparently we don’t like the name “NFTs” anymore? Guess it might be time for “Unique Tokens”? I’ll play along for now…
🔔Unique Announcements 🔔
CryptoStrikers, the first project to be a part of Status Incubate, finally launches on main net. CryptoStrikers sold a whopping 650 packs in the first five days of release. The question remains: Will CryptoStrikers be able to build a Strikerverse?
The team behind KittyRace announced a local implementation for CryptoKitties so dApp developers can iterate on their KittyVerse dApps even easier. And we still need better metrics to track the extensibility of NFTs, otherwise new users will be turned off by low user bases.
Not sure how to value your new cryptogoods? Well now you can auction your items and have users bid without paying gas! You can even use your cryptogoods in-game while they’re up for auction.
E-sports players can now auction their items while in matches, adding an entirely new betting dynamic to the matches 🏆

How do NFTs play into content monetization? Since the value of NFTs accrue on the long-tail, maybe continuous auctions of collectibles will be a way to monetize content.
Maybe that’s what NSFW has planned 😉
