โœ๏ธ NFTs as Key - One Year later by Misch Strotz


Almost exactly one year ago our CEO Misch wrote the NFTs as Keys article in which he explained and anticipated how the role of NFTs will evolve & shift in a pseudonymous economy ๐Ÿ—๏ธ

For the anniversary, Misch sat down and reviewed the past year and the recent developments. The result: A completely revised article with new insights. NFTs as Keys Part2, so to speak.




๐ŸŽฎ Otherside's first trip


Thousands of people joined the first tech demo, First Trip, by BAYC and their virtual world Otherside. It was a trippy experience that was only open for holders of Otherdeeds (land-plots in said world).

Together with a giant Ape, the users had to complete a quest and fight a massive evil Koda. This is one of those moments where the explanation cannot do justice to the event. It was epic, you'll just have to take our word for it at this point.

It was that day that the Metaverse entertainer was born.
- Misch Strotz

For those unable to attend the demo in person, a token-gated Livestream was broadcasted. Again it was only available to Otherdeed holders, and watching the stream also counted as participation! Which turned out to be quite important, as everyone who participated received an update to the metadata for their Otherdeed!

If you can't really grasp the dimensions and significance of this approach, now might be the time to read Misch's NFTs as Keys article above ๐Ÿค“


๐Ÿ’ธ Value creation in the Metaverse


Which factors drive investments, big players, and millions of people into the so-called Metaverse? How are brands and customers using the Metaverse today, and how will they use it in the future? How much value can this "concept" really create?

So many questions, and luckily for us, McKinsey & Company provide the answers and numbers! This 70 page report is a must-read for everybody that wants to make it in the Metaverse ๐Ÿ’ก


social media world

๐Ÿ“– IG will let you buy products through DMs


Earlier this month Mark Zuckerberg announced that Instagram is implementing a feature that lets you purchase products from small businesses via direct messages ๐Ÿ’ธ

As is often the case, the feature will only be available in the US for the time being. If and when it will also be activated in your region remains to be seen.
