There was so much Nifty News this week that a second round-up was necessary to catch up on the latest nonfungible token (NFT)-related news.
FLUF World and Snoop Dog partner for charity
FLUF World, Beyond VR studio and Snoop Dogg teamed up to raised over $1 million via a one-day charity NFT auction on behalf of the Kiwi nonprofit organization Auckland City Mission.
Seven FLUF World NFTs were paired with seven limited-edition Snoop Dogg-themed Burrows designed by Beyond and sold on OpenSea. The partnership with the rapper included a 500 Snoop Dogg studio drop announced this past week.
What. The. Fluf.
Over $1 Million NZD raised in just 12 hours in our @SnoopDogg Burrow & Fluf Auction for the @AKcitymission. We’re blown away

We love you all ❤️ pic.twitter.com/0C1aYM3Vg5
