VeeFriends Eruption No. 2 Is Here

Eruption No. 2 of Burn Island is starting today, according to a tweet from VeeFriends.

❗ Why It Matters

Burn Island Eruption No. 2 brings an exclusive auction for three yet-to-minted Chromie Squiggle NFTs. Participants can bid and burn BOOK GAMES tokens, with only the three highest bids winning the auction.

This auction is a part of many upcoming Burn Island events that "unlock rare and valuable NFT collectibles, access to unique events, and physical or virtual rewards through its deflationary technology." Rewarding holder bases is at the forefront of conversation for NFT projects, and VeeFriends joins Memeland and Yuga Labs as perhaps the most aggressive in providing opportunities to holders in recent weeks. 

🔎 The Deets

  • The auction will be open from March 16 at 5:00 p.m. ET until Mar. 24. 
  • Participants must hold a VeeCon 2022 ticket on their VeeFriends account to participate.
  • Bid size is equal to the number of BOOK GAMES tokens burned, and bids can be increased by burning additional tokens.
  • Tokens of non-winning bids will be returned, and only the three highest bids will have their tokens officially burnt.
  • The winner will be viewable on the leaderboard at the conclusion of the auction, and a confirmation email will be sent upon placing a bid.

Tessera Announces ApeCoin Staking Vault, Chromie Squiggle Auction

Collective ownership platform Tessera announced the launch of an ApeCoin staking vault on Monday, with both the lack of a geo-filter and the ability to auto-compound yield providing alternative options to other $APE staking methods. 

The vault currently only serves the $APE-only pool, with the NFT-gated staking pools will be rolled out at a later date.

The auto-compounder feature allows users to automatically deploy rewards back into the pool, passively compounding earning. is the official front-end interface from Horizen Labs, the blockchain technology company tasked with building out ApeCoin staking. The platform is currently geo-blocked in several countries (including the United States) due to regulatory concerns, forcing many users to seek out alternatives. 

Tessera also announced their second fractionalized vault coming Thursday, with a Chromie Squiggle from Snowfro up for purchase. 250 'raes', or NFTs that represent a share of ownership over the vaulted NFT, will be created and sold utilitizing a last price dutch auction format.

The previous vault, which featured CryptoPunk #4847, was bought out for 82 ETH by notable market-maker PunksOTC.

WETH Offer Acceptance Rate Reaches ATH
Tyler Warner

The acceptance rate of WETH offers for Ethereum-based NFTs hit a new all-time high today, according to data from NFT Statistics (@punk9059). This surge is likely tied to the macro crypto volatility in the markets today.

NFT Statistics, the Director of Research at Proof, shared the information in a tweet this morning. According to his data, the ratio of WETH offers to market buys spiked over 0.4 (40%). The previous high was just over 0.3 (30%) in early October.

Let's take a look at some specific collections, with a focus on the number of WETH offers accepted versus total sales.

  • Bored Ape Yacht Club: 7 WETH offers out of 11 sales (63.6%) 
  • CryptoPunks*: 2 WETH offers out of 8 sales (25%)
  • Azuki: 9 WETH offers out of 15 sales (60%)
  • DigiDaigaku: 2 WETH offers out of 5 sales (40%)
  • Moonbirds: 10 WETH offers out of 14 sales (71%)
  • Squiggles: 6 WETH offers out of 12 sales (50%)

*Punk metrics based on bids accepted vs market buys.

So Moonbirds owners are "capitulating" the most, with Punk owners the least.

Another important takeaway from the high-level data is the general trend line. The WETH ratio seems to be moving steadily up as this year progresses. The rate was in the 0.05-0.1 range from January to May (bull market) but has been grinding up since. Since October, the ratio has been in the 0.2-0.3 range, indicating that 1 of every 3-4 sales is someone taking a WETH offer.

How can an NFT trader use this information?

Well, consider making WETH offers for NFTs instead of market buying. This trend will likely continue as long as the crypto volatility continues.
