It was a quiet Tuesday for a fresh mint. Each weekday, we cover the daily dose of NFT action – and while today was a slower day, there’s still plenty of action to quickly recap. In sports NFTs, Candy Digital – the arguable leader within the world of baseball NFTs – is unrolling dynamic NFTs.

Latest Mint: Dynamic NFTs On Candy Digital

Dynamic NFTs have been largely under-the-radar, certainly amongst legacy projects that have become the biggest and brightest.

The company has onboarded hundreds of new employees this year to advise banks and merchants on the use of NFTs and related blockchain applications.
