Without a doubt, it has been a difficult week for the crypto space in general. And it’s not just the collapse of SVB. Rumors and news of suffocating lawsuits and regulations have pervaded the space, leaving many wondering where the future of blockchain technology might be headed!
This week saw another major banking meltdown. And while it’s not as directly related to cryptocurrencies as FTX, ripples of panic have spread throughout the financial space. Like the FTX fiasco, developers are now forced to specifically state that they had no direct association with Silicon Valley Bank.
And although the crypto markets are rocked by the latest news, as usual, development continues. Champions Ascension, in particular, is maintaining its steady pace of updates with a new 3v3 arena team battle mode. ev.io also continues its construction by offering a new game mode called Snipe the Streamer. And Continuum World is finally launching its free First Explorers event.

Gitcoin Presents is an NFT collection launched earlier in the month that is associated with Vitalik Buterin, where a large portion of the profits are donated to Gitcoin.
Meanwhile, Owls is a collection of ASCII-style images of owls that was just released with a free mint. The retro style of the collection has already spawned a number of imitators and seems to have caught the attention of the NFT community at large.
