Web3 Wednesday: OpenSea Accepts BNB Chain NFTs with Open Arms
This week’s Defluenced podcast features me alone as Unkle Bonehead (@unklebonehead) is searching for a new mic. His old one is on the fritz. Not the Ritz. The topic this week is Publish0x and I discuss six things I like about it. Before you do anything else today, listen to this.

Leading Cryptopunk collector Gmoney is revealing his identity. This is more like a gender reveal than anything else. Okay, so you have a baby boy. Have you named him yet? “No, we’re going to wait to give him a name until we know he actually likes being a boy.” Ah! Well, at least you’ll be able to recognize him in public.
