ACME Labs Collaborates With Chuck Jones Gallery To Launch Lost Wrabbit NFT on Hedera
Messari’s State of Hedera Q2 2022 Report was published this week, showing that through the turmoil experienced by the crypto markets, Hedera continued to build. Hedera improved KPIs, launched $555 million in funding, and increased developer activity. The protocol averaged 33,000 active users per month, a 51% increase quarter over quarter. Transaction fees are consistently low, averaging less than $0.0001, and developer activity is trending upwards, with an average of 6,000 developer events per month. As Messari comments, “Hedera is on the rise”.
Metaverse marketplace and community ACME Labs announced their partnership with Chuck Jones Gallery and Hedera to release the limited edition Lost Wrabbit NFT that will come with a Fine Art Print. The NFT is based on an original character created by Chuck Jones, the legendary animator best known for his animated shorts of Looney Toons starring fan-favorites Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wild E. Coyote and the Road Runner, among other characters.
Porini Foundation, a Swiss-based foundation at the crossroads of nature conservation and blockchain technology, announced earlier this week that it is moving its Nature Collectibles initiative to the Hedera network. Nature Collectibles are verifiable pieces of digital art that are connected to a nature conservation project in a protected area. Users can now buy, sell, and collect Nature Collectibles through a Hedera wallet on a designated smartphone app.
‘Women In Data’, a non-profit organization that focuses on supporting opportunities for women in the data sector, launched their ‘Visionaries’ NFT collection. 2,500 unique artworks were minted on the Hedera Network, but will not be for sale. Instead, the ‘Visionaries’ NFTs will be gifted to members of the Women In Data organization on an annual basis, with each member receiving an NFT that best represents their membership in the community that year.
The HBAR Foundation is collaborating with WebShield to support the launch of Personal Privacy Networks that will offer individuals unprecedented privacy, cybersecurity, and identity protection, enable convenient access to data, apps, digital content, online services and secure messaging, and link disparate records and accounts to personalize, optimize and automate online activities without risking privacy or control of sensitive data. The HBAR Foundation’s Privacy Market Development Fund is helping support this initiative with a grant and technical assistance.
