MetaMundo is Creating 3D NFTs that Will Work in Every Metaverse

What NFTs Can Learn from LEGOs

It’s not too often that LEGOs are used as an analogy, let alone a case study for growth marketing. So when I saw a tweet from Li Jin discussing what NFT collections could learn from LEGOs, I was instantly intrigued. Li parlays three concepts that LEGOs embodies: Network effects
