Recent Event Highlights

🙊 The Sandbox Buys Bored Ape for 740 ETH 🙊

Sandbox doesn’t just build and sell; they invest back into the ecosystem. With this BAYC purchase, their NFT collection has grown to an estimated
3,880 ETH ($13M USD).

“Will The Sandbox, in partnership with Yuga Labs (BAYC) and/or Larva Labs (Meebits) develop avatars for the metaverse? If so, the floodgates will open for land parcels, wearables and accessories. The utility that these pfp’s may provide for their owners could be mind-blowing, with gamification the most likely to boom.” Says Ekaitza, Chief Partner for Investment Strategy at $WHALE

💰 101 BAYC go for $24M at Sotheby’s! 💰

View all 101 Bored Apes

Sotheby’s BAYC auction ended on September 9th with 101 Bored Apes selling for $24.4m and 101 Bored Ape Kennel Club dogs selling for $1.8m.

That’s an average of $241,020 or 69 ETH per BAYC at the time of writing this.

I stopped by the Sotheby Auction after-party in Decentraland at BAYC’s Riverboat in, featuring Spottie Wifi’s first LIVE metaverse performance:

Jammin’ out! How are my moves?

Spottie says he’ll have a concert video out soon for anyone who wants to watch it.

Krapopolis

Remember Dan Harmon’s new blockchain curated cartoon that was announced earlier this year?

The cast is set! I’ll be watching it for sure and possibly buying their NFTs.

Emmy Award nominee Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd), Matt Berry (**What We Do in the Shadows), Pam Murphy (Mapleworth Murders) and Duncan Trussell (The Midnight Gospel) have joined the voice cast of Krapopolis, FOX’s new animated comedy set in mythical ancient Greece. The show centers on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that tries to run one of the world’s first cities — without killing each other.

With writer/producer/animator Jordan Young (BoJack Horseman) announced as the executive producer.

**more people need to know about the tv series What We Do in the Shadows! Think The Office, but a mockumentary-style show about Vampires trying to live their lives among regular people in New York. Season 1 trailer.

⚽ Sorare Signs Deal with LaLiga ⚽

Allowing Sorare to launch digital cards of all players in the top two divisions. Getting them one step closer to their goal of having all clubs from the 20 global leagues by the end of 2022.

If you aren’t familiar with Sorare, the cards aren’t just collectibles; they’re utilized in their blockchain-based fantasy league to win prizes.

Speaking of Fantasy sports, at $WHALE, we have just started up NFL Fantasy football weekly contests. Don’t miss Monday’s Hang time w/ Nytmare for more details.
