In today’s Mint, we’re taking a quick look at some of the latest television show IP to hit the ‘minting block,’ Meta (formerly Facebook) and their new outrageous announcement that has Crypto Twitter up in arms, a new survey from an entertainment agency research desk that perhaps can help us keep everything in perspective.
Time to get fresh with your daily dose of The Nightly Mint – let’s review.

I Love You, But Do I Know You!?
According to a report today from Fast Company, new survey data from entertainment agency UTA shows that “6% of respondents currently own an NFT but 38% want to own one in the future,” and that “69% of people don’t know how to purchase NFTs or what to do once they own one.” The survey was a small sample size, just 1,500 respondents, but still provides a high-level insight around where we’re at in the big picture. One would venture to guess that we’re still a bit early.
The ‘Minty Fresh’ Take
Far from being minty fresh is Meta’s take on NFT fees. The company announced that it’s VR platform Horizon Worlds would be taking a 47.5% cut on NFT sales. Crypto Twitter chaos ensued.
