With Bitcoin hitting record highs, crypto is well and truly at the forefront of our minds right now. I don’t think there’s a hodler or day-trader out there who isn’t peeping at their wallet or the crypto group chat at any spare moment. Let us free up a little more of your time and roundup the latest news from this space:

Ellen von Unwerth’s ‘Supermodel Series’ unveiled.

Legendary German fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth has taken to Instagram to announce that she’ll be selling animated versions of three of her most iconic images as NFTs on cryptograph. Shots of the 90s/early 2000s models Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell will be auctioned off for charity, with funds going to Unicef, Fashion For Relief and Imperial Charity. Keen to own a piece of fashion history? Head here to pre-register.

Huge CryptoPunk offer rejected.

The owner of CryptoPunk #6046, which features a smoking punk with 3D glasses, has turned down an offer of 2.5KETH for the NFT over the weekend. Translating to roughly $13 million, it would have set the record for the most expensive CryptoPunk ever, and is made even more monumental by the fact it was bought back in March for about $110K by the current owner.
