Y00ts Move away from the polygon

In a recent development, the y00ts NFT project announce that it will be migrating to Polygon’s Ethereum network just a few months after migrating from Solana. According to the project, the reason for the move is to reunite y00ts NFTs with its sister NFT pool, DeGods, which is already on the Ethereum mainnet.

It is believed that this move, along with its reunion with sister project DeGods, could also give the project more exposure as the Ethereum network is known to host the most valuable NFT projects, including Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), Mutant Ape Yacht Club. (MAYC) and CryptoPunks.

The scheduled migration date is still unknown as y00ts announced that “the migration date will be announced soon”. Y00ts also announced that it will return the $3 million grant it received from Polygon Labs to move to Polygon late last year.

Meanwhile, Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal appeared supportive of the decision while praising DeLabs’ role in expanding Polygon’s NFT ecosystem.

“Frank and his team have played a huge role in helping us expand the NFT (profile picture) ecosystem on Polygon,” said Nailwal. “We will continue to nurture this community which has tripled in size this year by redistributing funds from Y00s and more to support our local creators and projects that we believe have the vision and conviction to help develop NFTs, whether as an art form or as a key to limitless feasibility.”
