An exclusive HUGO x Imaginary Ones NFT collection of 1,001 3D animations, entitled ‘Embrace Your Emotions’ (EYE), will be launched in early November.

💸 Over 300 NFTs Moved Out of 3AC Address 💸

Starry Night Capital, a nonfungible token (NFT)-focused fund launched by the co-founders of the now-bankrupt hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC), has moved over 300 NFTs out of its address, according to reports. Starry Night Capital was founded last year by Su Zhu, Kyle Davies and pseudonymous NFT collector Vincent Van Dough. At the time, the fund planned to exclusively invest in “the most desired” NFTs on the market. Blockchain data provider Nansen on Oct. 4 on Twitter noted that the NFTs were reportedly shifted from a wallet associated with the fund, including Pepe the Frog NFT Genesis, which sold for 1,000 Ether (ETH) in October last year, worth $3.5 million at the time.

More than US$13 million worth of y00ts mint t00b NFTs were sold in September, making it the most popular collection in Solana over the month.
