Ethereum price once again gaining momentum amid growing NFT mania
Following recent market turbulence, ETH seems to be moving up once again.
- Ex-White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci recently announced the launch of his new NFT platform called Flatter.
- Ethereum cofounder Vitalik Buterin was recently unveiled as a member of Time’s 100 most influential people list 2021.
After trading at around the $3,200 mark for the better part of last week, Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by total market cap, seems to have garnered solid upward momentum. At press time, ETH is trading for $3,422.
This latest surge is largely attributed to the ongoing non-fungible token (NFT) boom that has caught the crypto sector by storm this year. The last few months have seen record-breaking trading volumes, with NFT sales over the month of August alone exceeding the $1 billion mark.
Innovation within this space has happened at a ridiculously fast pace. Just a few days ago, Anthony Scaramucci, founder of SkyBridge Capital and SALT, revealed he was all set to launch a new NFT platform called Flatter, which combines the power of these unique digital tokens with exclusive experiences.
Flatter seeks to help expose traditional collectors to a broader market where they can come together and share a wide range of collectibles and experiences as well as gain early and exclusive access to a number of specially curated events by SkyBridge and SALT.
