7 essential ingredients of a metaverse
In many ways, the metaverse is just another name for the evolution of the Internet: being more social, more immersive, and far more economically advanced than what exists today. There are broadly two competing visions of how to achieve this: one is decentralized, generous in property rights and new frontiers, interoperable, open, and owned by the communities that build and maintain it. The other view — all too familiar to many today — is centralized, closed, subject to corporate whims; and often extracts painful economic gains from its creators, collaborators and inhabitants.
The main dimension to compare these two views is open versus closed, and the differences between the two can be conceptualized as follows:
Around the world in 10,000 NFTs
It is an IRL community project that affects 10,000 CryptoCitizens around the world in 10 different cities. Every CryptoCitizen is a member of the DAO and can vote on board proposals to create IRL experiences and build the most diverse DAO in the world. CryptoCitizens are NFTs and are created through a generative art smart contract Powered by Art Blocks.
Bright Moments is an arts organization owned and operated by holders of NFT CryptoCitizen. They are on a mission to educate, empower and connect communities around the world through unique and memorable experiences. Over the next two years, Bright Moments will be launched in 10 cities determined by the CryptoCitizen community. Join the DAO by buying or creating a CryptoCitizen. CryptoCitizens have voted for the next Bright Moments roadmap city. The next 1,000 CryptoCitizens will be minted in London this summer.
The Vatican creates a VR NFT gallery
The Vatican opens an official VR NFT gallery to democratize artworks. It is a collaboration with virtual reality company Sensorium and Humanity 2.0, the Vatican non-profit organization. While it is not clear whether these Vatican NFTs could be available in the NFT market and make money, the goal is clear, use heritage! St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel are some notable features in the metropolis. Artworks, statues and more can be seen in the historic site. In total, there are more than 70,000 works in the Vatican Museum. These include works of art by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and many more. The Vatican plans to present these works to people using NFTs.
The crypto scam titled “Mint your Ferrari” tricked visitors into buying NFT tokens, falsely claiming that Ferrari has “introduced a collection of 4,458 horsepower NFTs on the Ethereum network.”
One of Ferrari’s subdomains was hijacked yesterday to host a scam promoting a fake collection of Ferrari NFTs, researchers say. The Ethereum wallet linked to the cryptocurrency scam appears to have raised several hundred dollars before shutting down the hacked subdomain. What makes the scam particularly interesting is the fact that the luxury automaker previously announced plans to launch NFTs in partnership with tech firm Velas.
Super interesting: It seems that scammers have found a subdomain takeover at “https://t.co/qb9JqK2oL9” and are using it to host an NFT scam. pic.twitter.com/6vKoxWegXp

Economic models based on scarcity
Scarcity in economics refers to when the demand for a resource exceeds the supply of that resource because the resources are limited. Scarcity forces consumers to make decisions about the best allocation of resources to meet all basic needs and as many wants as possible. Scarcity operates in the free market through supply and demand, allowing the price of a good or service to fluctuate over time, when more or less of it is available. For example, natural resources such as gold, oil, silver and other fossil fuels are naturally scarce. When demand exceeds supply, these resources become scarce and prices can rise. Other commodities, such as diamonds, have a high price due to their limited availability and market control. In short, blockchain-enabled NFTs create digital scarcity. Without scarcity, real estate has no economic value. There are more and more NFTs that are rare and in demand due to their online popularity. Offer is limited to one buyer only. The less of something, the more people want it
The Urban Legends Collection
The exclusive NFT art collection, Urban Legends, pays tribute to every urban tribe in history for continuing to wave the flag of freedom of speech, equality, eccentricity and respect for all people who expressed their rebellion with a way of dressing that codes broke. And it is precisely these hairstyles, clothes, tattoos, expressions and accessories that are portrayed in urban legends.
The Urban Legends project begins with a collection of NFT art to create avatars, spaces, services, and experiences in the metaverse. In addition to their original skins, Urban Legends will feature 3D skins that can be used in the Metaverse, where all races, styles, and freedom to be who we are are represented by Urban Legends. Urban Legends arrived on May 7. Like the Urban Tribes, Urban Legends chose Solana, as an alternative blockchain network that is heavily claiming its space.
