We're back, just in time to talk about the biggest NFT news of 2022: Yuga Labs, the creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection, has acquired the brands, copyrights in the art, and other intellectual property of the CryptoPunks and Meebits collections from Larva Labs. BAYC is the most valuable NFT collection; CryptoPunks is the second-most valuable. So, what’s next now that these crown jewels have become one? Real Vision’s Ash Bennington joins The Defiant’s Camila Russo to talk about the deal. Camila and Ash also discuss how the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening cycle will impact digital assets and what President Joe Biden’s executive order means for the crypto space.
