Positive EOS Coverage in the Media

This week the wider crypto community was exposed to positive articles about EOS on a variety of news sites including CoinDesk, Yahoo.com, cryptonews.com and others. Titles included:

Surprisingly accurate, these articles paint a clear picture of the state of EOS and all the different parties currently building to revitalize the network. Here are some of our favorite passages from the many articles published this week.

Coindesk: “Block.one’s relationship with the EOS community boiled over late last year with the crypto-governance equivalent of “you’re fired.”

Yahoo.com: “After a decisive axing of ties with Block.One, the EOS network is once again under the direct technical guidance of the EOS Foundation, and original network architect Dan Larimer has been reinstated to rebuild.”

Bywire: “Mandel, together with other initiatives spearheaded by the ENF, has injected renewed momentum into the ecosystem. This is a network playing catchup fast. With the ENF taking the reins alongside Dan Larimer, and a vast network of developers, EOS is well on its way to full independence.”

EOS Community Fireside Chats

Lately, the EOS Community Fireside chats have been… well… on fire! If you haven’t joined us yet, I strongly encourage you to do so on Discord on Wednesdays at 20:00 UTC. It has a very friendly vibe and everyone is welcome to listen in, say hi, ask some questions or share some updates. Everyone who shows up earns a POP Token NFT that can be used to win EOS prizes! One thing we particularly like about the fireside chats is that we oftentimes end up getting some sneak peeks about news and updates from a variety of projects before they’re publicly released. Yves La Rose, Executive Director of the ENF, is always present and ready to answer questions from the community. Here are some of the topics we discussed last week:

  • Mandel name placeholder & funny AI suggestions
  • EOSIO+ WG details
  • Upcoming ENF video content (26 Yves solo rants planned!)
  • Pomelo Matching Grant MSIG, S2 funds, S2 NFT series
  • EOSPowerUp updates
  • ChallengeDAC updates
  • EOS NFTs updates

Claiming Pomelo Grants

The EOS Worker Proposal System is now fully operational!

Upland MetaVentures: Block Explorer Shop

Metaventures are officially LIVE in Upland! This means players can visit 10 player-owned shops in the metaverse to purchase exclusive Block Explorers. Head to one of the in-game shops to view the owner’s inventory of Block Explorers and experience Metaventures for the very first time!

This marks a big step in the Upland journey on their way to being a fully metaverse-integrated game that runs on the EOS blockchain. They’ve built up a sizeable player base so far, attracting around 60,000+ daily active users which places Upland as the 8th most popular dapp across all types of dapps and across all blockchains.

Congrats Upland and let the Metaventures begin!

EOSIO Swiss Workshop LATAM & Mandel editions

Traditional Tibetan Thangka NFTs

In this series, the .gems team is working in cooperation with Pureland Travels with the goal to support Tibetans in their own cultural and economic sustainability and introduce NFTs as an innovative method to extend social benefit.

The original artworks have been produced by the Thangka painter Tashi in collaboration with his students. Tashi has made it his life’s mission to preserve Tibetan culture by teaching the revered discipline of traditional Thangka painting to the next generation of young Tibetans. Many of Tashi’s students are orphans that lost their parents during the 2010 Yushu earthquake, and much of the revenue generated through selling their work goes back to funding the materials and boarding costs that the students need for their arts education.

Besides going beyond the traditional market for Thangka art and supporting the good cause of Pureland Travels and Tashi, this series also explores opportunities for spirituality in the digital space. It’s trying to answer the question of how the sacredness of a physical masterpiece can be transformed into a digital representation. How much of the object exists in our minds and how important is materialistic presence and ownership in the digital age of the 21st century?

Get ready for the drop on Thursday the 27th of January. There are 3 pieces being dropped with 21 mints of each being sold at a price of 50$:

  • The Buddha of Light
  • The Buddha of Wisdom
  • The Buddha of Medicine
