It was a quiet Tuesday for a fresh mint. Each weekday, we cover the daily dose of NFT action – and while today was a slower day, there’s still plenty of action to quickly recap. In sports NFTs, Candy Digital – the arguable leader within the world of baseball NFTs – is unrolling dynamic NFTs. Meanwhile, Crabada is blowing up on the Avalanche network, and one of the biggest financial credit and debit card providers and payment processors is filing new trademark applications around NFTs.
Let’s review it all in a bite-sized daily recap:

Latest Mint: Dynamic NFTs On Candy Digital
Dynamic NFTs have been largely under-the-radar, certainly amongst legacy projects that have become the biggest and brightest. Candy Digital, who carries a partnership with Major League Baseball, is working on dynamic NFTs according to reports today, kicking off with a series titled the ‘MLB ICON Leadoff.’ It could lead to the early iterations of fantasy sports intertwining with NFTs (though indirectly here, as fantasy sports have not been mentioned with this application), as Candy Digital will integrate player performances from each game. It’s a major development for taking sports NFTs to the next level.

Mastercard Making Moves?
Visa and Mastercard are two powerhouse financial players, and while Visa has certainly made a splash around NFTs, such as buying a CryptoPunk last year, Mastercard has had most of it’s activity occur behind the scenes. Today, reports emerged that Mastercard for over a dozen new trademark applications around NFT and metaverse engagement. The company has onboarded hundreds of new employees this year to advise banks and merchants on the use of NFTs and related blockchain applications.
The ‘Minty Fresh’ Take
Today’s ‘Minty Fresh’ take is a quick look at the last 30 days of GameFi NFT volumes, courtesy of @gojo_crypto on Twitter. Crabada has seen massive growth on the Avalanche chain, so much so that it has begun to bog down Avalanche’s network costs. Avalanche is expected to roll out a dedicated Crabada subnet accordingly.
