Monster Adapter have just announced a new adapter for Nikon Lenses.
Their post reads:

We, the MonsterAdapter Team, on Feb 4 2021 proudly announced our new product LA-FE1, the Nikon F Mount to Sony E mount electronic adapter!
You may not know that behind the scenes, we actually developed the world’s first such Nikon-to-Sony electronic adapter which has been brought to the market under other names and now it finally returns to our MonsterAdapter brand and has been greatly improved both in the firmware and hardware.
Main Features of the MonsterAdapter LA-FE1:
1. AF capable with Nikon AF-I, AF-S, AF-P lenses. MF only with screw drive and MF lenses;
2.Automatically recognizing and supporting both the electromagnetic and mechanic-lever controlled aperture;
3. Supporting human/animal eye AF if the body is capable;
4. Supporting high-speed continuous shooting up to 10fps if the body is capable;
5. Supporting the lens’ VR function and its co-working with the body’s 5-axis stabilization;
6. Designed with detachable tripod mount;
7. Supporting F mount tele-converters;
8. Easy upgrading of firmware by simply connecting the camera body and computer with USB cable.
LA-FE1 brings multiple AF advantages from Sony E bodies to Nikon F lenses, including hundreds of AF points across the frame, human/animal eye focus, real time AF tracking and AE in continuous shooting mode, etc.
LA-FE1 is equipped with high-speed aperture motor and can automatically recognize and support electromagnetic and mechanic lever controlled aperture of Nikon F mount lenses.
The lenses’ VR can be activated by the half-pressed shutter button and can be working well along with Sony bodies’ 5-axis stabilization.
The adapter is designed with the tripod mount, which is detachable and easy to carry. More tripod mount options for various uses will be available in the future as per the demands of our customers.
The LA-FE1 can work normally with a7r4 and a6600 even the bodies have the latest firmware installed.
Fully Supported Camera Bodies with AF:
Alpha 7 II (Ver 2.0 or higher), Alpha 7 III;
Alpha 7R II, Alpha 7R III, Alpha 7R IV;
Alpha 7S III,
Alpha 7C;
Alpha 9, Alpha 9 II;
Alpha 6100, Alpha 6300, Alpha 6400, Alpha 6500, Alpha 6600.
Partially Supported Camera Bodies with Limited or No AF Functions:
Alpha 7, Alpha 7R, Alpha 7S, Alpha 7S II, Alpha 5000, Alpha 5100, Alpha 6000 and NEX series.
From now on, the MonsterAdapter LA-FE1 is available for sale in China at our official online shop and authorized dealers. Further notice will be made for overseas MSRP and availability time.

One major advantage over currently available adapters appears to be an increase in Supporting high-speed continuous shooting up to 10fps if the body is capable; up from 2.5 fps.

There is an article on this one on dpreview: https://www.dpreview.com/news/7771020004/monsteradapter-new-la-fe1-adds-af-support-to-nikon--lenses-on-select-sony-cameras

Loved this remark:
"What company funds Monster Adapter? Why it only adapt to Sony? Not to others?
Seems like Sony is a wormhole sucking Nikon and Pentax to Sony's E-mount hole"
Why not follow me on Instagram? @Addy_101
