GameStop NFT daily fee revenue falls below $4K as markets go down

With only a 2.25% platform charge applied to NFT purchases, GameStop NFT generated about $166,800 in sales volume during the past 24 hours, which amounts to about $3,753 in revenue.



Since the platform’s mid-July introduction, GameStop’s nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace’s daily income has fallen to below $4,000, indicating a sharp decline in interest.

GameStop NFT has produced almost $166,800 in sales volume during the last 24 hours, according to data from DappRadar. With the platform only taking a 2.25 percent cut of NFT sales, that only amounts to $3,753 in earnings over that time period.

Since trading volume has increased by 91.23% in the last day, DappRadar’s scant information on GameStop appears to suggest that figures truly fell to about $2000.

The most recent numbers represent a dramatic decline from the project’s first full business day on July 13, when NFT sales volume was $1.98 million, or almost $44,500 in fees.

At the time this article was written, the HyperViciouZ project on GameStop had the highest 24-hour sales volume at 29.78 ETH, or roughly $47,841 in sales. In contrast, Pudgy Penguins, which sold 860.8 ETH, or $1.37 million, during that time, was the most popular project on OpenSea.

Added gloom and doom
The NFT industry as a whole isn’t doing well right now only because of GameStop. The Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) floor price has fallen by 28.6% to 11.2 ETH, or $17,986, according to data from NFT Price Floor, while the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) floor price has fallen by a significant 19% to 68.48 ETH, or $109,900, as of Monday.

The floors have fallen by 55% and 72%, respectively, from the BAYC and MAYC’s respective all-time floor price highs of 153.5 ETH and 41.2 ETH in May and April.

Blue chip NFTs worth $55 million, according to NFT analysts, were in danger of being liquidated on BendDAO last week.

Users can deposit their NFTs on the BendDAO platform and borrow ETH against the floor price of their assets. The loans make for roughly 30–40% of the NFT floor price that was deposited. However, the depositor has 48 hours to pay off the loan if the price falls so low that it equals 90% of the floor price. Failing to do so will result in their NFT being liquidated and auctioned off.

This cutoff is shown on the platform as a health indicator, and a score of zero starts the NFT liquidation process. As of last week, at least 20 loans secured by BAYC NFTs and many more against Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs had health indicators that were dangerously close to falling below 1.01.

Currently, 10 BAYC NFTs are playing with fire with health indicators ranging from 1.01 to 1.06, while two have been liquidated this week and put up for auction. However, that’s a reduction from last week’s total, indicating that things have changed for the better.

There are now 14 loans secured by MAYC NFTs that are in imminent danger of being liquidated, with health indices ranging from 1.01 to 1.03. 13 have also recently been liquidated and are currently being put up for sale on BendDAO.

The floor price for other notable NFT ventures, such CryptoPunks, has fallen significantly thus far this month. The CryptoPunk floor has already retraced back down to 66.45 ETH, or $106,518 despite rising from 68.3 ETH on August 1 to 77.4 ETH on August 4.


Ford is getting ready to enter the Metaverse with digital cars and NFTs

A month after the company announced significant personnel reductions, it has filed a trademark application covering its future initiatives in the Metaverse and NFT space.



Ford Motor Company, an American automaker, has filed 19 trademark applications across its key automobile brands as it prepares to enter the realm of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and the Metaverse.

Mike Kondoudis, a trademark attorney licensed by the United States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO), disclosed in a tweet on Wednesday that the business had submitted a total of 19 trademark applications covering its car brands, including Mustang, Bronco, Lincoln, Explorer, and F-150 Lightning, among others.

The trademark applications include a projected online marketplace for NFTs and virtual versions of its businesses’ automobiles, trucks, vans, SUVs, and clothes.

Ford intends to produce digital images of its vehicles, SUVs, trucks, and vans that will be verified by NFTs, according to USPTO filings submitted by the automaker on September 2.

The business also disclosed plans for “downloadable virtual commodities,” or “computer programs,” that would include apparel, accessories, and parts for vehicles for usage in “online virtual environments,” such as virtual and augmented reality trade exhibitions.

Additionally, there are plans to develop an online marketplace for “others’ digital artwork” as well as “online retail shop services featuring non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and digital collectibles.”

Less than a month after Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford and CEO Jim Farley announced significant personnel reductions from its global workforce to decrease corporate expenses; Ford has decided to enter the Web3 area.

Ford isn’t the first automaker to enter the Metaverse market.

While premium automakers like Bentley and Lamborghini have already launched NFT collections, automakers including Nissan, Toyota, and Hyundai have indicated ambitions to enter the fast-expanding Metaverse market.

Crypto-Vultures Profit from the Death of Queen Elizabeth

Only a few hours after the Queen’s passing, more than 40 meme tokens bearing her name have been released.



Yesterday, according to Buckingham Palace, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passed away. Although her loss triggered a global outpouring of sympathy and grief, it has also been exploited as a money-grab.

Elizabeth II, monarch
Grift endures eternally, but the Queen is gone.

There are over 40 meme coins on Ethereum and the Binance Smart Chain thanks to Queen Elizabeth’s passing (and at least one exploitative NFT collection).

While the news of the British monarch’s demise saddened people worldwide, cryptocurrency scammers took advantage of the occasion to launch dozens of meme coins with Queen themes on Ethereum and Binance’s BNB Chain.

Among the new crypto coins that were introduced are “Queen Elizabeth Inu,” “Queen Doge,” “God Save The Queen,” “London Bridge Is Down,” “Queen Grow,” “Rip Queen Elizabeth,” “Elizabeth II,” and “Queen Inu II.” Other tokens with the name of the next king, King Charles III, have also appeared. According to DexScreener, at least 40 separate meme coins appear to have been produced in the previous six hours.

The most liquid tokens, Save The Queen and Queen Elizabeth Inu, have already processed trade volumes of around $700,000 and $200,000 since their debut. At the time of writing, the price of Queen Elizabeth Inu is up 1,517%, while it has increased by 23,271% on Binance Smart Chain and 3,708% on Uniswap. Prices are incredibly unstable and exceedingly unlikely to persist.

The “Queen Elizabeth 69 Years NFT” NFT set has reportedly been produced. One image is said to represent each year of the Queen’s reign in the collection. The project’s aims should be questioned because Elizabeth II reigned for 70 years, not 69.

The crypto community, typically known for its gallows humor, mainly reacted negatively to the initiatives. When told about the NFT collection, NFT aficionado ThreadGuy said, “You’re going to hell.” Trader Byzantine General declared, “We’ve got to stop this crypto stuff.”

In 1926, Queen Elizabeth was born. She was the longest-reigning British monarch in history and passed away in Balmoral Castle at 96.

One crypto sector, according to billionaire Chamath Palihapitiya, is experiencing a classic bubble cycle

One crypto sector may be going through a typical hype cycle, according to billionaire investor and software entrepreneur Chamath Palihapitiya.



In a new episode of the All-In podcast, the CEO of Social Capital discusses the sharp decline in trading volume in the non-fungible token (NFT) market.

Palihapitiya offers Coachella and Burning Man as examples of major music festivals that strive to be distinctive but may wind up being mostly the same.

The billionaire contrasts NFTs and the overall art market with the two music events.

“I do believe that there is something going on; the simplest way to explain this is with the Burning Man/Coachella scenario. Many of these things are similar, but when some people approach anything new, they are too insecure to accept that it is similar to another item, so they spend a lot of time attempting to convince you that it is different. When someone says that a time is different, it’s probably not that different, as stated in the Warren Buffett quote, is an example. Or consider the other famous historical adage, “Things don’t always repeat in history, but they rhyme.”

All of this is meant to imply that, aside from major advances in science, not much new has been discovered recently. We keep repeating the same patterns, and one of them is the social capital that comes from making certain decisions and then having those decisions validated by others in order to feel valuable. And this occurred in NFTs, as well as, I’m sure, in the initial stages of several artistic movements. These events are more comparable than dissimilar because they have presumably occurred in a number of other markets as well.

Burning man and Coachella are same. The art market and NFTs are both the same. It doesn’t need to be unusual; you can simply appreciate it because you think it’s cool. I would just take it with a grain of salt and tell anyone who comes to you asking why it’s so different.

DappRadar reports that earlier last week, trading volume on popular NFT marketplace OpenSea reached a one-year low.
