Bhad Bhabie set to auction her work this week
The announcement by popular NFT digital marketplace Nifty Gateway that one of the world’s famous fictional pieces- Sophia the robot, has generated at least $1 million from its debut NFT sale is another story that sums up a good week for the NFT space. The successful robot-themed NFT, a collaborative effort of popular artists Andrea Bonaceto and Sophia, is one of the closest reality art pieces. At the time of auctioning, each NFT was traded for around $3000.
However, the NFT could generate $1 million quickly via the auctioning of a giant piece of the work, which was bought by another digital artist, 888.

Cardano wants to offer NFTs a new home
Popular Blockchain network Cardano, whose native token ADA has been making waves, are trying to get into the NFT space for a while. However, the founder of the network, Charles Hoskinson, has now hinted that the network is close to realizing its ambitions. The Blockchain network has been trying for a while to incorporate NFTs into its network and going by the words of Hoskinson today; they are almost there. Hoskinson confirmed that he had approached at least ten different NFT vendors about considering Cardano, ahead of the high traffic and high gas fee Ethereum.
Hoskinson believes that Cardano has a better service offering for NFTs, compared to other Blockchain networks. Hoskinson confirms that Cardano is set to incorporate smart contracts into its services with a forthcoming proposed upgrade to place the network ahead of many Blockchain infrastructures. Suppose eventually the statement of Hoskinson is true. In that case, Cardano is posed to be in a competitive position against Ethereum, as the network will be offering low gas fees and low congestion transaction process, ahead of the leading altcoin Network.
