We enter the final month of the first quarter of the year, and The Nightly Mint is here to provide you with a daily dose of NFT action. After starting the week with an abundance of ‘Pixelmon’ memes… we’re back with more Pixelmon memes. Meanwhile, there’s an established blue chip project that’s continuing to collaborate with big names in entertainment. It’s all in a day’s work.
That’s a quick bite of tonight’s Nightly Mint – let’s review.
The Nightly Mint
The ‘Kevin’ Memes Remain
We’d be remiss not to include our daily dose of memes, but we’d really regret it if we didn’t lead The Nightly Mint with memes. It’s only right. As is often the case in crypto, with memes come money. That is certainly the case with ‘Kevin,’ the meme spinoff from NFT project Pixelmon that has caused this week’s hilarity in the NFT community.
At time of publishing, Kevin’s are yielding a cool 4-5 ETH – and we’re quickly seeing a number of Kevin derivative and imitative projects too.

The ‘Minty Fresh’ Take
Pixelmon is the ultimate testimonial to never take this space too serious. This isn’t open heart surgery. We’re mostly just having fun here and trying to do some cool new stuff to see what lands and what doesn’t. @flynnjamm on Twitter puts it aptly:
crypto people are so excited to “onboard” their friends into web3 just so they can convince their friends to buy this pic.twitter.com/yM4FXvn2zm
