Doom and Tips for Dogecoin and Bitwise Bitcoin ETF: Nifty Newsletter Update

In this week’s newsletter, OKX, a cryptocurrency exchange, is showing its strong support for Bitcoin-based nonfungible tokens (NFTs), while community members are sending tips to the Bitwise exchange-traded fund (ETF) wallet. Famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is training with holders of his NFTs. In other news, find out how the popular 90s first-person shooter game Doom has made its way into Dogecoin, and learn about OpenSea’s openness to a potential acquisition.

OKX is taking a unique perspective on Bitcoin Ordinals, which some consider to be spam. The exchange is strongly standing behind Bitcoin NFTs by announcing its support for Atomicals and Runes on its marketplace. It will also support Doginals, which are Ordinals on Dogecoin. According to an OKX executive, in permissionless networks like Bitcoin, all transactions are considered valid as long as they pay fees and follow consensus rules. This executive claims that there is no such thing as spam in open networks like BTC.

Bitwise, an asset manager, has made its spot Bitcoin ETF wallet address public, allowing the public to verify the ETF’s holdings and flows directly on the blockchain. Shortly after the wallet was made public, it received numerous tips and donations from the cryptocurrency community. These tips included various inscriptions such as RSIC airdrops, a Bitcoin Punk, a Bitcoin Burial, and more, totaling about $6,000.

Cristiano Ronaldo, a well-known football superstar, fulfilled his promise to holders of his NFTs during a training event sponsored by Binance. He played football with several NFT holders and gave them tips on how to improve their game. Ronaldo signed a partnership with Binance NFTs in 2022, with the goal of providing fan engagement opportunities to NFT holders. Ronaldo expressed his desire to give his fans access to unique experiences.

In an interesting development, a developer used the Ordinals protocol on Dogecoin to incorporate the free version of the 1990s video game Doom into the Dogecoin network. This allows anyone to play the game hosted on the blockchain using mobile devices and computers. Doom, which was released in 1993 and gained immense popularity, was inscribed into Dogecoin by a developer named Mini Doge to commemorate the game’s 30th anniversary.

OpenSea, a prominent NFT marketplace, appears to be open to the idea of being acquired. The CEO of OpenSea stated that while the company currently has no plans for an acquisition, it would consider it if the right partnership opportunity arose.

These are just a few highlights from the recent developments in the cryptocurrency and NFT space. To learn more, check out ‘s NFT Steez podcast.
