-6- Twin Flames
The Twin Flames resale market has been on fire recently. Twin Flame #99 was bought for 29.9 ETH this week. The Twin Flame project is one of the biggest photography NFT projects in the crypto space. The creator, Justin Aversano, started taking pictures of twins back in 2017 to honor his own twin that passed away in the same year. It’s nice to see a project like this with so much meaning to the creator take off in the way it has.
