The annual energy consumption of the Tezos network is estimated at 0.001 TWh. Tezos’ Proof of Stake (PoS) design means it can operate in an energy efficient manner – other popular Proof of Work (PoW) networks use much more power (Ethereum 26 TWh; Bitcoin 130 TWh)

Facebook starts testing NFTs
After launching NFT support on Instagram in May, Meta launched digital collectibles support on Facebook with select creators. A Meta spokesperson told TechCrunch that the company has begun a slow rollout that will allow a select group of creators in the United States to post digital collectibles to Facebook. This feature will allow these creators to display NFTs on their profiles in a new tab, and the art will be tagged “digital collectibles” – just like Instagram. The official launches come a week after Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company would soon test NFT support on Facebook. At the time, Zuckerberg said the test would allow creators to post to Instagram and Facebook. However, the spokesperson said that the sharing feature has not yet been rolled out on both platforms, but will be available soon.
The Salesforce NFT Cloud Platform
Salesforce has rolled out a closed pilot program for a new service called NFT Cloud, which allows users to create and manage NFTs for brand engagement and marketing purposes even as the broader crypto market continues to grow. NFTs are best understood as a method of fingerprinting a particular artwork, code, or almost anything stored digitally, using the same fundamental blockchain technology as cryptocurrency to create a single copy of that item.
3 key metaverse stats
According to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the metaverse market is expected to reach $47 billion by 2025.
- There are 30 million headsets installed today that are part of various metaverses.
- There are currently between 300 and 500 million active users worldwide.
- There are currently a total of 30 million #NFT wallets.

ElevenParis, launched its first collection NFT
Urban ready-to-wear brand ELEVENPARIS has launched its first collection of NFTs and related artworks. These NFTs are shaped like a smiling and friendly monkey, JOKY, created for the occasion by the artist Ben. It is an artificial intelligence that rejects the different versions of JOKY from the common NFT to the legendary NFT, that is, rare. Each NFT collection is linked to the brand’s seasonal collection. The artwork is the faithful 1mx1m physical reproduction of the epic or legendary JOKY NFTs. JOKY will be the gateway to participate in the ELEVENPARIS loyalty program which will provide many benefits to holders, including a % of the value of the NFT in $LVN, their loyalty token (crypt currency) created by the brand last June. A world first in the RETAIL sector and a small revolution in customer relations.

The 3D Metaverse, Mona
Mona has raised $14.6 million to create a metaverse platform for 3D creators. It’s about building worlds, not walls. Justin Melillo, CEO of Mona, sees it as a way to create an economy that allows artists and collectors to participate meaningfully in a shared digital universe. Opened to creators in October, Mona has more than 3,000 users building virtual worlds in its metaverse. Artists can turn around and sell their worlds, which are all connected in the Monaverse, Melillo said in an interview with GamesBeat. I spoke to him on a phone call while he was traveling in a taxi through NFT NYC in New York last week.
