Pudgy Penguins: More Than Just Digital Art
Imagine a world where a digital penguin isn’t just a piece of art but a global brand ambassador. That’s the vision Luca Netz, the owner of Pudgy Penguins, is bringing to life. Following their monumental success with a toy launch across 2,000 Walmarts in the U.S.,
they’re now waddling their way into Europe, specifically every Smyth’s store in the U.K. And if that wasn’t enough, whispers of a collaboration with the LA-based cookie company, Last Crumb, have the community buzzing with excitement. As the Pudgy brand expands, its market footprint follows suit. Currently valued at a robust 5.5 ETH, it’s up by 20% this week alone.
On this day, Web3 enters a Brave New World.

A staggering 73% surge in its value, now standing tall at a 5.8 ETH floor.

The Broader Crypto Landscape
Beyond the realm of NFTs, the crypto market remains a focal point of interest. With Bitcoin holding steady at $27,700 and Ethereum just a touch below at $1,630, stability seems to be the theme. However, AVAX is breaking the mold with a 5% surge, possibly riding the coattails of Stars Arena’s success. And for those in the festive spirit, VeeFriends is gearing up for Halloween with some spooky offerings.
What’s Next in the NFT Universe?
The horizon looks promising with a slew of upcoming mints and reveals. OSF’s collaboration with Foundation titled “The Surprise” is generating buzz, and VeeFriends and Notable Pepes are also set to make waves.
For our crypto aficionados, this week has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. As we gear up for the next, remember, in the world of NFTs and crypto, the only constant is change. Stay tuned, stay informed, and most importantly, stay ahead of the curve with Cryptonaire Weekly.
