>World's largest capsule toy store
全球最大扭蛋商店开业
Spanning over a massive 1,256 sqm floor space, the "Gashapon Department Store," which opened in Tokyo a few weeks ago, is the world's largest capsule toy store, according to Guinness World Records.
几周前在东京开业的"扭蛋专卖店"占地面积达1256平方米,被吉尼斯世界纪录认定为全球最大的扭蛋专卖店。

The new store, located inside Ikebukuro's Sunshine City shopping center, is now home to the largest number of gashapon machines at a single location, boasting a whopping 3,000 capsule toy machines.
这家位于池袋太阳城购物中心内的扭蛋专卖店设置有3000台扭蛋机,是全球拥有最多扭蛋机的地方。

There are nearly 40 factories producing gashapon in Japan, delivering more than 200 new types of products every month, but since each type of capsule stays in the market only once, collectors try to buy as many as they can when they come out.
目前日本全国有近40家扭蛋厂商,每月推出的新产品有200多种,但由于每款扭蛋只上市一次,收集者会试图一次性大量购买。

The first eight oak trees destined to replace the destroyed spire of Paris' scorched Notre Dame cathedral have been selected from the Bercé forest in the French Loire region, church officials said.
巴黎圣母院官员近日表示,首批用以重建被烧毁的巴黎圣母院塔尖的8棵橡树已从法国卢瓦尔河地区的Bercé森林中选定。

>First-ever tweet up for sale
推特首条推文上线拍卖
The first post on Twitter, which appeared on its co-founder and current CEO Jack Dorsey's account in 2006, is up for sale as an NFT, a non-fungible token.
2006年,推特联合创始人兼现任首席执行官杰克•多尔西发布了推特上的第一条推文,目前此条推文正在以NFT代币(一种市面上不流通的非真实货币)形式出售。

Some social media enthusiasts are ready to spend a fortune on it.
一些社交媒体"发烧友"已经准备好花大价钱买下它。

Dorsey's almost 15-year-old message, "just setting up my twttr", attracted whopping offers after he posted a link to a tweets marketplace called Valuables on March 5.
本月5日,他在推特上分享了一个指向市场平台Valuables的链接,在那里大量买家报价竞拍这条将近发布了15年之久的推文,推文内容为:"刚刚建立我的推特账号"。

The intense bidding war put the Twitter co-founder's post at $363,000 as of Saturday morning. Offers were rising almost every hour, and had risen to $1.5 million by 3pm GMT and to $2.5 million later on Saturday.
竞价战十分激烈。格林尼治时间6日上午8时左右,这条推文的价格达36.3万美元,随后报价几乎每小时都在上涨,到当天15时,价格已涨到150万美元。截至当天晚些时候,出价已飙升至250万美元。

NFTs are a special type of token.
NFT代币是一种特殊类型的代币。

Like cryptocurrencies, they operate on a blockchain, but they don't hold money and serve to show ownership of some other unique assets like art.
和加密货币一样,NFT代币并非真实货币,需要在区块链上操作,用来显示对一些其他独特资产(如艺术品)的所有权。
