Mainstream Media Coverage For NFTs From Around The World – June 2021

We’re back with the bi-weekly roundup of NFT news from around the world. There have been many new developments, partnerships, and launches in the past two weeks, and popular news media outlets have reported on a variety of NFT topics.

There was one news article in particular which circulated around the NFT community for at least a week, and caused quite a storm of emotions for the NFT experts on CryptoTwitter. NFT sales have also significantly plummeted, generating a lot of talk amongst media outlets about “the death of NFTs.” Judging by the growing number of NFT news reports, it doesn’t seem like NFTs are dead just yet. Read the full list of NFT highlights from the past two weeks on mainstream media channels below.

BBC Technology Reporter Writes About her NFT Experience

BBC Technology News reporter, Cristina Criddle, wrote a very controversial article about her experience with purchasing an NFT. The article sparked so much contention and outrage from the NFT community that there were countless threads about it, with everyone claiming that she had not done her research properly and that buying an NFT is not the negative experience that Criddle portrayed it to be.

We suggest you read it for yourself, and decide whether or not you agree that buying an NFT is a “crypto nightmare.” The title itself is very well chosen and perfectly sensational: “Buying a pink NFT cat was a crypto nightmare.”
