Within the last two days, the majority of the market saw little action, however this altered after the Otherside mint closed over $317 million in only three hrs.
These broadly unique, at random sorted parcels of land have accumulated over 194,000 Ether (ETH) ($536,137,000) and also to the surprise of numerous, Yuga Labs has started refunding individuals lost towards the foreseeable gas wars that burned over $100 million price of Ether.

Investors aren’t fading blue-nick NFTs
