Epic Games Launcher supports the first NFT based game
Few large game developers and publishers are willing to participate in NFT or blockchain game development and design. This was not the case with Epic Games last week.
Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, opened the door to this field,No matter the developer participates in the development of any game project，Finished products should be fair and playable。
So far, Sweeney's view represents the idea that if developers want to develop around NFT, Epic Games will not limit it.
Blackos Block Party, the first NFT game in Epic Games, is now available in the store. Obviously, this is the message Sweeney wanted to convey to Epic Games last week.
Yuga Labs has recently become a rumor factory of NFT
As the founder of BAYC, is Yuga Labs planning their next generation version?
Last week, a speculative report introduced a game, Mecha Apes, which is said to be about to be released. It is said that it is the latest derivative project of Yuga Labs.
It is reported that the project is planned to go public before the end of this year, with the goal of raising 50 million US dollars.
Yuga's co-founder Garga quickly refuted it. He quoted the report on Twitter and said it was a fake news.
Doodles completes large-scale financing
Alex Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, and the long-term owner of Doodles led the latest round of equity financing of the NFT project. Finally, Doodles completed the financing of 54 million dollars, which was led by Seven Seven Six, a company led by Ohanian.
Ohanian is very willing to share his views on NFT,It can be seen from the fact that Doodles' financing has made its valuation exceed 700 million dollars，Ohanian is optimistic about NFT。
Given the mediocre performance of Doodles in the past, many NFT community members were surprised to see that the project has such a high valuation.
The current floor price of 10000 min is 8 ETH, which is not large compared with the peak price of 35 ETH three months ago.
EU proposes to use blockchain and NFT to combat counterfeit goods
The EU recently announced that it is developing a system designed by the EU Intellectual Property Office,The system will use blockchain and NFT as part of its fight against counterfeit physical goods。
A document released this month explains that the organization has selected a high-level architecture for this task and details how the system will work.
Intellectual Property (IP) holders will create digital tokens (dual NFT) to prove that a group of goods produced is real.
These IP holders must be listed as approved signatories in advance，To create these products on the tracking blockchain。 When products are transported through different checkpoints, the solution will allow supply chain tracking, so that IP holders can determine that the products arriving at the store are real.
Starbucks takes NFT as a new reward mechanism
Starbucks is integrating a new mechanism to use NFT as a reward. This project has been in progress, but it seems that it has finally found some way out.
About six months ago, Howard Schultz, the former CEO, first announced the project. Although Schultz resigned after the announcement, Laxman Narasimhan, the new CEO, seems to be witnessing the start of the project.
Last week, as Starbucks announced that they had reached the latest partnership with the Polygon blockchain, the launch of the NFT incentive program was given hope.
Starbucks calls the program "Odyssey" and expects to add an NFT market on the basis of the existing incentive program.
What will that be?Although there are still many places to explore，But as stated in the previous in-depth report，Users are expected to obtain digital assets called "journey stamps"。
Brady Brewer, chief marketing officer of Starbucks, said that the company hoped that the NFT award would be super easy to get.
