It’s not exactly peak season for NFTs, as trading volumes on OpenSea plunged approximately 99 percent from its record high of US$405.75 million on May 1. August has proved to be a difficult month for the digital collectibles sector as unique buyers and total transactions remain far below the metrics of the earliest months of the year.

Despite this, BAYC’s Otherdeed has emerged as a clear winner this month. With approximately $1.035 billion in all-time sales volume, it has beat out other well-established projects such as Azuki, CloneX, Moonbirds, VeeFriends, Doodles, and Meebits.

NFTs can now be shared on Facebook

Following Meta’s announcement that users could display and share their NFTs on Instagram, the functionality has been expanded to include Facebook as well.

Users can now connect their digital wallets to either or both social media platforms to share their digital collectibles. Instagram began beta-testing NFT shareability in May this year and only rolled out this feature to over 100 countries earlier this month.

According to a blog post from the company, it’s “started giving people the ability to post digital collectibles that they own across both Facebook and Instagram” after they connect their digital wallets to either platform.

The posts will basically look like normal posts, according to a screenshot the company tweeted, but will have a badge marking them as a “digital collectible.”

Fundraising
Limit Break raises $200 million

Limit Break, a Web3 gaming startup focused on building massively multiplayer online (MMO) games, raised $200 million in two funding rounds. The floor price of Limit Break free mint NFT DigiDaigaku rose to 15.67 ETH after this news emerged.

The gaming startup was founded by Gabe Lydon and Halbert Nakagawa, who were both previously at Machine Zone. “Our focus is on what I believe is going to replace ‘free to play’ with something I call ‘free to own’ games,” Leydon said in an interview.

Despite the popularity of play-to-earn games, Limit Break is eschewing that model by giving away free NFTs to players from the start. Leydon has said that the free-to-own model can reduce scam-like behaviour in the blockchain gaming space, where game studios sell NFTs but fail to deliver games.
