Apr. 22 NFT Recap | Moonbirds Releases Nesting, MNLTH Shoes Reveal

Welcome to LT;DR, the Lucky Trader Daily Recap. This recap showcases the top NFT news each day.

The top news for Apr. 22 includes Moonbird nesting going live, the long awaited MNLTH reveal, the Akutar Dutch auction, and top NFT movers. 

Moonbirds Releases Nesting

The Moonbirds team released its staking mechanism, which they're calling 'nesting' (v0.5) earlier this afternoon.

Holders can lock their moonbird in nests, which will upgrade based on the duration of nesting. The first upgrade color is "bronze," which will apply after 30 days of staking. 

After dropping just under 30 ETH, the enablement of nesting has pushed the Moonbirds floor back up to just under 35 ETH. 

MNLTH Quests Complete and Shoes Reveal

The MNLTH NFT from RTFKT Studios had quite a newsworthy day, as the community completed the final quests and unlocked the contents of the box. 

Each NFT contains a pair of CryptoKicks, and a Skin Vial, and a MNLTH Box 2. Holders of the MNLTH NFT can on their own accord mint and acquire the additional items at https://mnlth.rtfkt.com/.
