The Nightly Mint: Daily NFT Recap

After a booming week of new Nightly Mint specials, we are closing the week on a relatively quiet note in NFTs. Nevertheless, there is always something for us to do.

The University of Arizona will allow athletes to take advantage of NFTs, Solana is making some strides, and we have a friendly reminder to keep looking ahead – we’re talking jpegs, after all. Stay positive.

It’s all in a recap of a day here at The Nightly Mint. Let’s dive in.

Latest Coin: University of Arizona Athletes

NFT opportunities began to sprout at universities last year, including the University of Arizona. But this week, a new deal between the University of Arizona and Athlete Assets will allow the use of university logos and other assets in NFTs. It is seemingly the first commercial copyright licensing deal surrounding NIL (name, image and likeness) for athletes in the crypto space. Athletes will earn a large majority of NFT revenue. Expect other collegiate institutions to follow suit.

Solana makes a splash

Coinbase Wallet has added support for NFTs and now allows users to send, receive and store SOL and SPL tokens via the browser extension, according to our latest report† Solana has solidified himself as a secondary power player behind Ethereum when it comes to the NFT landscape. Solana, like many other Ethereum competitors, appears to offer scalability solutions that have proved challenging for the Ethereum blockchain so far.

Solana has seen a hodgepodge of success in the NFT space, but has still forged his own path. This recent announcement is undoubtedly a win for the ecosystem; expects Solana to continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the NFT space.

The ‘Minty Fresh’ Take

NFTs have proven that early adopters of major projects can secure life-changing bags. Never look behind you, keep looking ahead.
