Premio NFT°1 — AlanaXBancor

Like always, I need to sort through my archive because there have been so many things going on over the past week and even months. But let’s take it step by step, one fantastic item at a time.

Last Sunday, on the 19th of December, we held a successful event together with the Bancor community. Mark Richardson took time out of his busy schedule to explain, especially to web3 newbies and beginners, how to avoid being scared of their first interaction with the Blockchain. In a little over an hour, he went from exchanging fiat (centralized currencies) into crypto, buying your domain on the Blockchain, to signing a staking contract on their DeFi Protocol at Bancor.Network . If you didn’t have the time to join, you missed out on getting a Premio NFT from me, but you can still check out the beginner-friendly tutorial here:

On Monday (27th of December), the next meeting for the Digital Fashion Week NYC will take place, and we will discuss rough designs for the first time. While the meeting itself is not open (cause we don’t want to spoil all of the surprises), there is, in fact, a channel you can check on Discord to make sure you are up to date on this significant project.

These days, I spend a lot of time on gitbook to make sure the information I provide is sound and helps web3 beginners. In our next community call on Tuesday, the 28th, we will go over some of that content together. At the same time, though, I would like to hear more about what scares you the most about web3 and what holds you maybe even back to engage more. Which aspects make you doubt, and what can my community and I do to help you out on your road of growth. Suppose you have some time on Tuesday, check-in on the event section on my server, and join us for the call.

While all of the former mentioned are mostly updates, the last one is more like a personal development journey: Thanks to some community members, I finally started to work on my visual identity. I hope it will help display all the information I want to provide you guys with from my home (the web3 side of the metaverse) less confusingly and more engagingly. So hold your thumbs that we will come up with something fun and awesome ;-).

Shout out to FlaviaBon for borrowing me her open-source heels for the Premio NFT
