Comments are off for this post.
One of the primary reasons I was drawn to Web3 was the concept of a new ecosystem where creators are fairly compensated for their work. Verifiable ownership of digital assets, on-chain provenance, and the ability to create and record in an immutable way — Web3 has the potential to completely disrupt the wonderful but exploitative industries of art, tech, finance, music, and more.  To me, this looked like the future. I still feel this way. Despite the current actions of marketplaces, I am confident that, as an industry, we will correct the course and remember why we’re here building this […]

Comments are off for this post.
If there were to be an influential NFT moment fit for a drumroll, the long-awaited announcement of Doodles 2 would surely be it. An ecosystem expansion that has been in development for about a year now, the anticipated next iteration of the beloved Doodles project is finally on the horizon. But surprise: it won’t be taking place on Ethereum. While this may come as less of a shock to fans who have been following the brand since 2021 — considering plans for Doodles 2 were originally unveiled this past summer — a cross-chain undertaking of such magnitude is certainly not […]
