Yuyga Labs Bitcoin Ordinals Collection 👀
If you haven't heard enough about Bitcoin Ordinals in the past couple of weeks buckle up because the party has just started. If you don't know what a Bitcoin Ordinal is we gave an entire explainer in this newsletter here. TL, DR: it's an image inscribed on a satoshi which essentially makes the ability for Bitcoin to have NFTs.
💡 What is TwelveFold?
Yugal Labs announced their own Bitcoin Ordinal collection named "TwelveFold" which will be a 300-piece generative art collection. It could be just us but it looks heavily inspired by Jack Butcher's Checks collection.

💡 What is Dookey Dash?
Yuga Labs (the creators of the Bored Ape Yacht Club) created a skill-based NFT game in which sewer pass holders could use their pass to compete in the video game. The high-ranking scores were awarded a key that winners don't truly know the full value of quite yet. For those wondering what the gameplay was like: think of Temple Run style.
