December 29th, 2021

The Thread Weekly is your best source for a quick debrief across the latest news, actions, events and happenings in web3 fashion, the open metaverse and beyond. It’s curated and published by DIGITALAX and the Global Designer Network.

Weave your way through the threads below to get all caught up on the culture from Dec 20th - Dec 26th 2021.

Top Moments

Holiday Seasonzz

Well…. this thread is a little late 😱😂 …. it is that time of year and although all designers have been keeping busy, sometimes its good to unstitch a little 😆 Either way, happy holidays, merry christmas and happy new year to the entire web3 fashion community! Thank you for all being so admirable, inspiring, hard working and pioneering… it’s really the biggest pleasure to be part of this community and at the heart of both manifesting and witnessing this revolution. Bring on 2022!

Airdrops Airdrops Airdrops

Both Keeping Distance and ALTERRAGE sent off their very first Realm NFT airdrops to lucky community members! These were both minted on-chain by the designers with their very own dedicated ERC-721 smart contracts and all metadata hashed and stored with IPFS. A big milestone for the web3 fashion community! 😍 Congrats! Flavia Bon was caught repping the Alter filter. 👀

Buy Side for Indie Web3 Fashion

Buying directly into the heart of indie web3 fashion just got even easier and way more savvy with the launch of the Collector DAOs sector on the Patrons platform. Now, through the DIGITALAX governance forum, anyone can propose for a new collector or buy side DAO to be launched.

This is massive news for the community and an extensive mechanism for continuing to expand the market and further decentralise the capital stack.

Collector DAOs can be formed on specific to broader reaching topics. For example, maybe it focuses on cultivating VR metaverse web3 fashion, or maybe its focused on supporting a particular cluster of upcoming indie designer realms also listed on the patrons platform.

View more here and see the very first DAO that has launched under the Web3 Renaissance Council (W3RC).

DAOn the Rabbit Hole

Emma was interviewed for the latest Rabbit Hole podcast to wrap up their season 0 and dive deep into all things open metaverse… even to the specifics of describing the life of a 16 year old in this new world. You can check out the latest episode here.

DeFi Drips

Some more sweet sweet style was spread across the DeFi portals this week, with the DIGITALAX x Bancor x Link drip being repped IRL…. stay tuned for some more surprise Bancor drip being released shortly in prep for V3 👀😜
