Residents in Shanghai have faced COVID-19 lockdowns, and are headed to OpenSea – with an OpenSea account titled ‘Voice of April‘ minting NFTs that show the inside perspective from Shanghai lockdowns.

The Chinese government has grown a particular stance and reputation around censorship, COVID-19, and even crypto. This latest move from some Shanghai users could very well be a risky one, but one that some individuals see as clearly a way to tell their story.

Terra Luna’s NFT Ecosystem Faces Growing Pains

We don’t often cover NFTs on growing chains as much as we should here on The Nightly Mint – however on a slower newsday on Wednesday, it was Terra Luna who faced NFT challenges through one of it’s major marketplaces, Luart.

Like many growing blockchains, the Terra Luna NFT ecosystem is a young one, with a variety of marketplaces that are grappling for the top spot, such as Luart, Random Earth, and OnePlanet. Luart has faced challenges recently, with some users trying to take advantage of a low-balling mechanic, among other issues. The marketplace held a ~3 hour AMA on Twitter Spaces today that apparently was a disaster, according to community members.
