After a brief hiatus, we’re back in action with the 5-day-a-week delivery of ‘The Nightly Mint,’ your daily digest of NFT action. There is plenty of discourse today on crypto Twitter around Coinbase buying the rights to use Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs from owners in the 5-figure range, but we’ll leave that to crypto Twitter and review some of today’s headlines – including a new Spike Lee NFT and one legacy gaming company that envisions NFTs as a major pillar in the future of video games. Let’s dive in.

Latest Mint: The Spike Lee NFT
Spike Lee is slated to mint 3,945 new NFTs of still images from his 1986 debut film, She’s Gotta Have It. Spike owns the rights to the film, making the execution particularly easy for the legendary filmmaker. Spike joins the likes of Quentin Tarantino on the short-list of well-know filmmakers to release their own NFTs around heavy-hitting films.

SEGA Sees NFTs In The Future Of Gaming
SEGA has reportedly been working on a new title, ‘SuperGame,’ that will encapsulate multiple games, and is now believed to incorporated cloud technology and/or NFTs. The historic gaming conglomerate has been cited to be expected to spend nearly a billion dollars over the next four to give years on the title. The individual titles are expected to be “interactive titles that go beyond the traditional framework of games.” Sega producer Masayoshi Kikuchi noted this about ‘SuperGame’ as well:
“It is a natural extension for the future of gaming that it will expand to involve new areas such as cloud gaming and NFT. We are also developing SuperGame from the perspective of how far different games can be connected to each other.”
