Apple claims NFT sales in apps are subject to platform fees, critics disappoint
Young crypto-first platforms looking to use NFTs haven’t been happy with Apple this past week. The global tech company says platforms that want to sell NFTs will have to be held accountable by Apple’s run-of-the-mill fee structure. But companies claim it’s simply not sustainable. As explained in the report, depending on geographic location, these fees can exceed 30% and include other costs.
Epic Games’ CEO also spoke out against Apple’s stance on the NFT platform, describing it as an “outrageously expensive in-app payment service.”

Solana’s Okay Bears sign with IMG
Solana-based Okay Bears has emerged as a top blockchain project this year. Need proof? Check out the latest headlines about the collection. Okay Bears has a licensing deal with his IMG. The 10,000 Mints Project regards IMG as a global licensing representative for consumer products and experiences. IMG works with some of the biggest names in IP and resides within the Endeavor conglomerate. The Endeavor Conglomerate has a significant presence across entertainment in nearly all media.
Goblins Go Live on Beta Truth Labs Marketplace
What a long and winding road this year’s Goblintown.wtf collection has been. The project was experiencing unprecedented hype during the mint season just five months ago. However, the project has cooled, and today’s lowest price is just below 1 ETH – after his daily average price of over 7 ETH hit a record high in early June.
But that hasn’t slowed down Goblin too much, as Goblin Town creator Truth Labs launched the “Truth Labs Marketplace” last week. We only charge a flat 5% fee on transactions (compared to OpenSea’s 2.5% + Flexible Creator Loyalty).
Universal Studios Launches Halloween NFT Scavenger Hunt
Next month, attendees at Universal Studios in California and Florida will have the opportunity to take home an NFT. Through October 31st, the park will host a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt where you can mint up to 7 million of his NFTs. A total of 7 of her QR codes hyperlink visitors to her unique NFTs. This offer is thanks to our partnership with Universal and MoonPay. The two joined forces in June and are apparently moving forward quickly with their new relationship.
The NFT will reportedly offer additional perks (at least for those who collect all seven QR codes), but it seems that these perks are still unclear. That said, the growing number of case studies of fan and user engagement with brands and assets is another cut in the belt. NFTs have been described as “proof of attendance protocols” tokens that could take over traditional means of measuring attendance at events and engagements.
