In this edition of the weekly token boom report, the metaverse NFTs and collectibles tokens spiked significantly earlier in the week before pulling back towards the end. Only a few maintained an upward movement right to the end ahead of the NFT NYC event.
The Web3 tokens also benefitted from a significant capital injection from venture capital firms, with Immutable launching a $500 million fund to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Binance and Solana.
Elsewhere, renowned Web3 entrepreneurs and developers BMAN Lee and Huobi Global co-founder Jun Du teamed up to launch a $400 million fund to invest in Web3 builders.
