In less than a year, Nicole Muniz has turned Yuga Labs into a household name in the NFT industry. Under Muniz’s leadership, Yuga Labs, which had already created one of the most popular NFT collections, Bored Ape Yacht Club, acquired two other popular collections, CryptoPunks and Meebits, giving the holders of those NFTs all associated intellectual property rights. Investors have started to take notice. In March, Muniz helped the company raise $450 million in a round led by a16z Crypto that values it at $4 billion. Now, Muniz is building on Yuga Labs’ success in NFTs through a metaverse platform it is developing called Otherside. In April, the sale of 55,000 virtual land deeds called Otherdeeds raked in about $320 million.       Follow: Twitter
