Product & Team Updates

The past two weeks, we've been hard at work on a Discoverability feature and making individual assets more accessible. V0.1 of both are now live, and we're currently iterating on both!

Banana Drops Manifesto
Answering “Wen Banana Drop Utility?” Before diving into Banana Drops, it’s worth restating what we’re doing at NiftyApes. Our audience has roughly quintupled over the past 45 days! Let’s outline the project we’re building and how Banana Drops fits into the picture. What are we building at NiftyA…
