Fewocious Brings a Collaborative, All-Ages Paint Party to NFT.NYC

Almost one year to the day that he inadvertently crashed the Christie’s website during an auction of his NFTs, digital artist Fewocious took over a New York City warehouse as part of the fourth annual NFT.NYC week. The 19-year-old artist, real name Victor Langlois, introduced fans and industry players to an interactive, immersive space showcasing his fanciful, brightly colored vision of the world. But instead of doing a talk, panel or showcase, Fewocious opted to throw a FewoWorld Paint Party in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood on Tuesday (June 21), encouraging everyone who walked through the doors to pick up a paint brush and/or spray can and start creating (jumpsuits and foot nets were provided to shield your clothes).

Can Metaverse technology enhance human-AI efficiency?

Conversational AI systems in the metaverse resemble human-to-human communication. Voice assistant AI has found its way to the metaverses of the new era, powering use cases like lifestyle assistance and personalized recommendations. For instance, rather than driving to a travel agency’s office or talking to their overburdened customer service, users can hop on the metaverse and take a tour of multiple awe-inspiring locations with the assistance of an AI-powered bot. An AI concierge in a metaverse is a personified machine that delivers unique recommendations based on the avatar’s preferences. Take into account the amount of data available on every person and you know the potential of this use case. Natural language processing in the metaverse makes it more personal than the real ...

Nonfungible airdrops: Could NFA become the next big acronym in the crypto space?

Airdrops have become the bread and butter of the crypto world — for good reason. They’re an indispensable marketing tool for up-and-coming projects that want to create a buzz around their ecosystems. Done right, distributing free tokens to the public can help elevate demand — and unlock big benefits for recipients. After all, if these altcoins end up being listed on major exchanges at a later date, their value could explode. Unfortunately though, downsides have started to emerge. These campaigns aren’t just reaching enthusiasts who passionately believe in what a project has to offer, but “airdrop hunters” who are merely scouring for ways to turn a quick profit. Airdrop hunters typically want to sell off the tokens they’ve received for free — as soon as they ca...

The community-centered approach to Web3 — Aave founder and CEO

Aave founder and chief executive officer Stani Kulechov said the firm was continuing to develop its decentralized social media platform, with Web3 potentially changing the way many view ownership.
