The Bulk

Magic Eden hopes to redefine the marketplace experience with the launch of its new Ethereum platform. By collaborating with Limit Break, Magic Eden ensures its marketplace not only offers reduced gas fees but also stands as a bastion for creator rights and future-forward innovation.

This strategic alliance leverages Limit Break's Payment Processor protocol, setting a new benchmark in transaction efficiency against current standards like OpenSea's Seaport. 

In addition to economic benefits, this partnership underscores a shared vision for the NFT community's future—especially in upholding creator royalties. Last week Magic Eden announced its Creator Alliance, which features most prominent ETH NFT projects as ambassadors and supporters of its marketplace.  

The marketplace launchpad will also go live on Feb. 27 with a mint of Okay Dogs from the founders of Okay Bears.

Estimates suggest that marketplace actions will provide somewhere between a 6-40% gas reduction on most marketplace actions.

Okay Bears Release Roadmap Update for 2023
Logan Hitchcock

Okay Bears provided holders and community members with an update of items expected to be staggered during the first and second quarter of 2023 on its official Twitter account this morning.

The project, which took the community by storm this summer, is poised to enter 2023 fully embracing and leaning into community support with multiple initiatives aimed at benefitting existing holders and active participants of its previously executed Bear Drops.

Below we'll walk through some of the expected items coming to the OKB Community:

Okay Badges, Streaks

In an effort to reward holding, trading, and community engagement, Okay Bears is establishing Okay Badges and Streaks. Users can earn and dynamically upgrade badges based on their involvement in the community, eventually leading to exclusive holder rewards. 

Okay Bears Gold Medallion

Okay Bears will be making a limited edition 10g Gold Medallion which features the OKB logo. This limited edition drop will be redeemable only through burning Bear Drop collectibles. 

The project also teased that this would not be the last time users can burn collectibles for additional, exclusive rewards. 

Okay Bears Merchandise

Okay Bears merchandise is coming soon too! The announcement indicates that the ethically sourced merchandise is "almost here" though no official dates or times have been provided. 

More On the Way.. 

Lastly, the project indicated that through the help of its partnership with IMG Academy many more initiatives and talks are underway. The aforementioned roadmap items are just a taste of things the project has planned for 2023, with many more items "left under wraps" for now.

The project will likely end the year far from its all-time high floor price, but it has rebounded more than 100 percent since its local bottom around the peak of the FTX fallout.

Okay Bears Releases Community Toolkit for IP Expansion
Logan Hitchcock

Okay Bears, a leading Solana PFP project, announced the release of an expansive community toolkit filled with brand assets for community use early Tuesday morning. 

The toolkit is composed of multiple OKBC Logos, the “We are Okay” Slogan, OKBC Mascot, Seal, and Brand Guidelines, such as color palettes. 

"When you hold an Okay Bear, you gain access to an ever-expanding set of IP, not just a single JPEG. We want to empower you to take your Okay Bear from an NFT to a stand-alone personal or commercial brand," read an announcement in the project's Discord. 

The toolkit can be accessed at, but is only available to holders of Okay Bears and the Okay Gold Coin. 

After a tremendous burst onto the scene, Okay Bears have steadily declined in floor price over the last few months. The project recorded a high floor price of 263 SOL on Magic Eden in May but now holds just a 43.33 SOL floor on the platform.

Okay Bears Adds New Head of Development and Engineering
Jason Bales

Okay Bears hired a new head of development and engineering to build out "an amazing tech team" and make Okay Bears "an impactful contributor to the web3 ecosystem," the team announced today.

The new hire, who goes by the name rlx, is "a software engineer with over 20 years of experience," according to the team, and was formerly the "CTO of an award-winning OG web2 SaaS company." They also founded and created MoonRank NFT, which is a statistical rarity service that has been integrated into all major Solana markets and tools.

"Rlx is an open-source proponent and has contributed to countless projects including PHP (to which he added JSON support), PostgreSQL, Electron, Quiche, unfiltered, netty, the Solana validator and other Solana projects, Google Closure Library, mcrouter, octodns, and many more," the team wrote on Twitter.

Frank, of DeGods and y00ts fame, chimed in to call the hire an "absolute W."

It appears the new addition to the team will remain anonymous, despite the long list of accomplishments they've earned. It is unclear if Okay Bears is hiring new developers in addition to rlx or not.
