Moonbirds went from mint to moon. The project has been the talk of the town since we left you last week, skyrocketing to a 20 ETH floor and serving out over $200M worth of sales volume.
Let’s break down that story and more in our bite-sized weekday report, The Nightly Mint.
The Nightly Mint
Latest Mint: Moonbirds
Moonbirds have certainly lived up to their name over the past 72 hours or so. The project had a mint price of 2.5ETH with 10,000 minted, and has since had the NFT community murmuring about Kevin Rose, the project’s creator.
The volume of sales over the weekend and into Monday led the project to be top of the 30-day chart on OpenSea, flying past NFT staples and leading Twitter into a frenzy of how fast an NFT project can be categorized as ‘blue chip.’ We’ll leave that to the ‘debatooorrrs.’

Activision Blizzard Shuts Down NFT Rumors
NFTs continue to be a hot topic in gaming, with casual and professional opinions that truly run the gambit throughout the industry. In a tweet over the weekend, Blizzard President Mike Ybarra responded to a story that the company was “polling interest in NFTs and ‘play to earn’ games,” stating directly: “No one is doing NFTs.”
Various gaming executives have taken a stance on the matter, with few AAA-title companies taking a deep dive into NFTs quite yet.
