2. The rarest Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT becomes a general issue at the Singapore trial
For the first time in Asian law history, the local Supreme Court assigned NFT the status of a valuable asset and put a freeze on all operations with the item on OpenSea. As it turns, an anonymous money-lenderrefused to return lot #2162 of the BAYC collection, which acted as collateral for the loan, and placed the item on sale instead. As of now, the court halted operations with the item,so that the current owner could not sell or transfer it until the end of the trial.

There is also a feature that allows users to block access to selected links on their page that can only be unlocked by visitors who own specific NFTs, eventually making creating exclusive content easier.
