Comments are off for this post.
Elon Musk’s recent Twitter takeover has the internet split. On the one hand, some users are high on the idea that the billionaire maverick’s uncompromising leadership style can truly realize the micro-blogging platform’s massive potential. For others, the acquisition sets an alarming precedent for the future of the internet at large. Think about it. Hand one person the keys to one of the most widely-used information portals on the internet. What could possibly go wrong? Even in the early stages of that takeover, we’ve already seen a glimpse of the chaos to come. So how do we avoid situations like […]

Comments are off for this post.
The company formerly known as Facebook has had its eyes on the next stage of the internet for a long time. In 2014, the tech conglomerate acquired Oculus — then a Kickstarter-funded project — with aims to throw its endless resources and the Oculus team’s expertise into launching the first entry-level VR headsets flooding the mass market. We’re not quite there yet, but Facebook has nonetheless continued its pivot into uncharted waters since then. Now it’s known as Meta, and it’s diving into Web3. Besides Meta’s highly-publicized Horizon Worlds metaverse game, the firm is also bringing Instagram and Facebook — […]

There are only two countries in the world that have a population over one billion. India is one of them. India is also one of the most technologically penetrated countries in the world. It currently has the second-largest smartphone market, valued at a little over $130 billion as of writing. And according to research conducted by the World Economic Forum, Indians are among the most optimistic about technology and the benefits that it provides. So it comes as no surprise then that India has been home to a rapidly-growing Web3 movement. According to Nasson, the country is home to more […]

As the Web3 ecosystem expands, the future of non-fungible tokens has become even more impossible to predict. While in 2021 it would’ve been possible to make a case for the long-term viability of Ethereum-based (and possibly only Ethereum-based) NFTs, today, Solana, Tezos, and Flow have grown into their roles as major competitors in the space. Yet, as the market continues to wax and wane, even hardcore supporters of alternative NFT blockchains have begun to falter in their beliefs. As the creator royalties debate drives collectors in the direction of (and then from) blockchains like Solana, another major shift in blockchain […]

Reddit NFT Avatars: How to Buy and Sell the Best Snoo for You

Comments are off for this post.
The social media platform Reddit has experimented with crypto and NFTs for years. Albeit, indirectly — and without actually using blockchain technology. For years, power users have deployed a feature of the site to highlight particularly funny, informative, or touching comments from other users: Awards. These awards come in three tiers of ascending price and have been common sights on Reddit for years. They also cost real money to purchase and confer. However, doing so bestows a special, unique status on the post or comment upon which an Award is conferred. Sound familiar? With Reddit’s recent launch of its collectible […]

12 Historical NFTs That Shaped the Foundation of Web3

Comments are off for this post.
NFT archaeology is a new field of study where individuals seek to uncover the NFT projects that laid the foundations of modern culture. This work is essential, because all modern NFTs are built on the groundwork initially laid by these early relics. As an NFT archaeologist, I’ve spent a lot of time doing on-chain research and digging up old projects on Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Namecoin. However, although having an early mint date matters, what’s truly important is whether a project innovated or pushed the space forward. The recent excitement around CryptoSkulls, the second 10k PFP (profile-picture) project ever, has sparked […]

Comments are off for this post.
Throughout the peak of the crypto and NFT market’s massive boom in 2021, the NFT market was valued at a staggering $41 billion — just nine billion dollars shy of what the physical art market generated in 2020. But as things stand, it may take time before the two fields of art can truly compete head-to-head once more. Of course, there are many hurdles that NFT art pieces need to overcome before that happens, and a primary one is how to display them. Physical artworks are easy to show off, since you can frame them and put them above a […]

Marketing models are changing. And the rise of Web3, compounded by the increasing popularity of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), has pushed the entire creative economy into a bottleneck of shifting norms, and it’s about time. The music industry generates roughly $43 billion in revenue; however, only 12 percent of that goes to artists. We needed new models and options when it comes to Web3’s NFT music. Although many people still use Spotify or Apple Music for their audio needs, a few incredibly powerful Web3 streaming platforms and NFT marketplaces have risen to prominence in recent years, taking the world by storm.

MetaMask is one of the most well-known names in the Web3 space. The crypto wallet, which surpassed 30 million active monthly users earlier this year, is often the first point of contact many people have with the NFT ecosystem, since for many it serves as a gateway to the Ethereum blockchain, where you can buy and sell digital assets.

Beyond the Hype: Real-World NFT Use Cases That Would Benefit Society

Comments are off for this post.
Time to face the fundamentals: what are NFTs used for, in the first place? An abundance of high-value NFT sales has continued to dominate the space, despite the recent bear market, so it’s not too outlandish that many still associate NFTs with financial speculation. Lumping NFTs into this bracket seems like the most convenient way to answer why people even buy NFTs in the first place. But in reality, NFTs are so much more than that. Part of why brands are flocking to Web3 is the need to familiarize more people with the technologies associated with it. Obviously, that includes […]
