The next meme NFT in the 6529 Collections series has been airdropped to random holders of the collection along with holders of UNIC Access tokens, Nouns, mfers, Moonbirds, CryptToadz, and Cryptodickbutts.
The project sent 1,313 of the 1,500-edition collection to the aforementioned collections' holders this morning, so users are encouraged to check their wallets for a Pepe-ized version of disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried with the words "USE A HARDWARE WALLET."
The floor price on the airdrop is currently 0.59 ETH.
The primary Nouns auction site, nouns.wtf, is partly down due to an issue with alchemy according to a tweet from Punk4156.
Those hoping to make bids on today's daily auction can do so via other frontends, says Punk4156, but extreme caution should be exhibited.

Tessera is creating a shared application for Nouns, where holders can gain access to the Nouns ecosystem and receive their own unique derivative NFT called a "Nounlet," the company announced Wednesday.
There will be 100 Nounlets and holders of the ERC-1155 NFTs will be able to elect a delegate to handle the base Noun's governance rights, submit proposals, and also join the Noun's private Discord channel.
"We want to provide users a fun, accessible, and simplified experience as a subDAO in NounsDAO," said Tessera's Deeze in a Medium article.
Tessera, formerly Fractional.art, announced a rebrand in August, to focus on creating "unique ownership experiences on a per-NFT collection basis," said founder Andy Chorlian in a message to Lucky Trader back in August.
Nouns, which auctions off one new edition a day, has a floor price of 78 ETH as of Wednesday afternoon. All of the proceeds from the auction go to the Nouns DAO treasury, which is community managed.
Nouns DAO warned the NFT community of potential scam accounts impersonating its project in a recent tweet.
The accounts are using the avatar from the official Nouns DAO Twitter account and copying the account's bio verbatim as the scammers are looking to attack users who are not checking their sources.
The team reiterated its tweet regarding security from earlier this summer: "This Twitter account is owned by the Nouns Foundation, which exists to support Nouns DAO. We will not share links to surprise mints or ask you to sign transactions with your private keys. Please be diligent while interacting with the Nouns ecosystem. Thank you."
Always remember to check your sources before interacting with any links or connecting your wallet to websites.
Today marks one year since the first Noun, "Noun 0," was minted from the NounsDAO.

Despite only releasing a year ago, the floor price of a Noun currently sits at 96.0 ETH according to the Lucky Trader Project Rankings.

While Nouns are a CC0 project, it is has seen its IP be used by big brands like Bud Light who featured Nouns in its Super Bowl commericial this year.
Another CC0 project named CryptoDickButts has seen a huge spike in price recently while other projects such as Moonbirds have caught flack in going the CC0 route.
The official Twitter account of the Nouns project, @nounsdao, was hacked late last night. After hackers gained control of the account, messages were sent out regarding a "new DAO pass" with a supply of 100 Nouns. @punk4156 has been providing updates on the situation while attempting recovery of the account this morning.
The malicious tweets have since been hidden from the @nounsdao timeline and the hacker "has been kicked by Twitter," according to @punk4156's latest tweet, but account access has not yet been restored. Users are advised to refrain from interacting with any @nounsdao tweets until @punk4156 gives the final all-clear.
