We kicked off the week with a deep dive into the fascinating world of @CardanoArk, a collective focused on metaverse gaming exploration. Our conversation explored their intriguing array of offerings, including a mint, Catalyst Proposal, and a bounty system. This unique initiative is designed to incentivize people to engage with the Cardano ecosystem, creating a full circle system that provides maximum metaverse value for the community, supporters, and delegators. In the spirit of sharing, they also pulled back the curtain on their journey, discussing how they expanded a simple printing business into a comprehensive printing, marketing, and mailing company, integrating Web 2 and Web 3 products and services.

𝗪𝗘𝗗𝗡𝗘𝗦𝗗𝗔𝗬 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗲𝗯𝟯 𝗙𝗶𝗹𝗺 𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻! What happens when the movie industry embraces the captivating world of Web 3 and the magic behind Cuban coladas? We sat down with the team from @staysafemovie, who are weaving an intriguing narrative of pioneering new models of film creation within the web 3 ecosystem, and overcoming the challenges that come with movie distribution. The team from Stay Safe provided us with an engaging breakdown of their strategy to combine NFTs minted on @nmkr_io, IP ownership, and movie revenue for a revolution in film economics! We explored the role of third-party collection agencies in tracking and distributing film revenue and how the NFT holders can keep an eye on their share of the profits. These innovative approaches represent new blockchain applications to the entertainment industry, and help welcome some of the largest film-distribution studios to the Cardano ecosystem.

@MatthewPlomin and @pyro_ae from @MehenOfficial.Together they helped to unravel the enigmas of fiat-backed stablecoins and detailed their emerging currency, $USDM, set to revolutionize the Cardano ecosystem this fall. The Mehen team lifted the veil on the unique Oracle-tied minting policy of USDM, aimed at maintaining a transparent and tenable reserve for users. The Mehen team then took us on a deep dive into their Catalyst Fund 10 proposals, which are intended to help support the release of USDM and improve the Cardano ecosystem as a whole. Included in their project proposal are not only resources for bringing USDM to life in a technical sense, but also tackling the legal and regulatory hurdles necessary for a stablecoin on Cardano to become successful. ђคг๏๏ - ђคг๏๏!

Episode: Decoding the Future of Cryptocurrency: USDM, Stablecoins, and Cardano's Future
𝗙𝗥𝗜𝗗𝗔𝗬 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗼𝗻𝗴𝗼𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗔𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗬𝗦𝗧 𝗢𝗩𝗘𝗥 𝗖𝗢𝗙𝗙𝗘𝗘. This day of the week is special because it’s dedicated specifically to project-catalyst proposals and ongoing catalyst projects. If you’re a participant in the catalyst ecosystem, come join us on Friday and let the community know about your work! We have three spots open for Friday guests, and this week’s session was really great: @radioastro helped us to kick things off with an update on Urban Greens Farms, and the roadmap ahead for this interesting urban-farming project on Cardano. We took a deep dive into Lloyd’s ongoing project creating a dApp that provides blockchain-based tooling for farming. Supported by Project Catalyst in previous funding rounds, Lloyd is looking ahead to Fund 10 to help take Urban Greens Farms to the next level. Grab your headphones and join us on this thriving journey through a project that is shaping the future of Cardano!
Our second guest was Tyler from @BitFins who joined us to give an update on the innovative virtual-aquarium project, and underscore the dedication his team has maintained over the last two years. Bitfins offers virtual displays for Web3 users from multiple blockchains, and has created a platform for people—across six different ecosystems—to display digital assets in a unique and customizable environment. During our chat, we uncovered the enticing opportunities Bitfins offers to enhance community engagement. Tyler explained the friends-list system, a build-and-earn mechanism, and a rewards currency that can boost user involvement. He also shed light on their intriguing social ranking system, where users can share their aquariums either publicly or privately. All of these features and more are part of their intriguing Fund 10 proposal, and is one not to miss if you are interested in the future of digital-asset ownership and the cross-chain possibilities of Cardano!
