The Metaverse
What is the Metaverse?
Facebook Launches $50 Million Fund for Metaverse Research
The NFTs
Several women-led and women-centric projects were at the forefront this week. From the successful Boss Beauties Summit and NFT launch – and the announcement that they will be the first NFT to hang in the New York Stock Exchange art hall – to renewed conversations around World of Women (coupled with a floor pop!), the opportunities for women and female-driven initiatives are ripe!
If you have women in your life who haven’t yet ventured into the space, here’s your sign to start that conversation :). Better yet, encourage them to sign up to join the Friends Don’t Let Friends Ignore Crypto Happy Hours hosted every other Thursday by BLOCK::BLOCK chief of staff, Carly Reilly! They’re designed for newcomers who want to learn more as well as OGs who want to share their wisdom :).

Some BLOCK::BLOCK News
The hot streak continues...
MeebitsDAO takes a big step forward: starting this week, MeebitsDAO Founders will be able to vote on the final DAO charter. From there, we can initiate the sale of General Membership tokens and open up the Discord to the broader community. This paves the way for the DAO to take its final form and begin fulfilling its mission of creating a vehicle for funding innovative projects that develop the ecosystem around Meebits!
Finally, in some BLOCK::BLOCK-tangential news: Martin Bekerman left his job at Netflix to work full time on his IP Savage Dogs & Savage Droids. Congratulations, Martin! Read his announcement here:
