ECOMI Monthly Update- July 2022
It was almost Christmas in July with the amount of excitement around the Fam over the past few weeks. VeVe collectors can now become ‘VeVeVerified’ as the public beta for KYC and Payout went live, crypto-enthusiasts can access premium research at a huge discount thanks to our first research and education partnership with Collective Shift, and VeVe makes a first appearance as the official NFT partner of Marvel at San Diego Comic-Con!
ECOMI x Collective Shift
Collective Shift was born in the aftermath of the 2017 crypto bull market, where it became incredibly apparent that high-quality, data-driven analytics and market research was lacking. Any form of crypto “education” at the time was either non-existent, too expensive, or too technical for the average investor to understand.
The Collective Shift platform removes a lot of these barriers by providing detailed yet simple to understand information, insights, and research from a range of analysts. The Collective Shift team uses combines fundamentals, sentiment, and technical analysis to help you find genuine opportunities in this emerging asset class and is suited to both new and experienced digital asset investors.
ECOMI x Collective Shift
Improve your crypto-knowledge with a 50% discount on your membership, and burn OMI from circulating supply while you’re…
This partnership is designed to give you the tools and knowledge you need to stay safe and succeed in the crypto industry, without all of the painstaking time and mistakes it usually takes to figure out on your own.
Through it, we will continue to share a range of information and research provided by the platform on our socials and on the blog. You can also access a huge array of free content on CollectiveShift.io. Anyone who chooses to become a member can also receive 50% off their first membership payment (this can be monthly or annually) by entering the code ‘ECOMI’ when joining.
As an added bonus, 30% of your membership fee will go towards buying and burning OMI tokens from the circulating supply, so get learning to start burning!
Calling All Content Creators
We’ve been busy building out some new community resources, and in July we put a call out for community content creators. If you create ECOMI or OMI content and are yet to drop channel info or content links onto this thread please go ahead and share!
While you’re there- tell us what kind of content you enjoy creating, and share your channel bio/thumbnails. We’ll put a call out for VeVe-specific content on socials soon, but if you cover both ECOMI and VeVe just let us know in the comments.
The Feesh Arena Beta Tournament
More than 10,000 matches have been played in the Feesh Arena since the beta tournament launched, and we want to congratulate the winners who will be sharing a prize pool of ~2 million OMI tokens. In case you missed it, the Feeshes NFT project recently began using the OMI token for the play-to-earn Feesh Arena.
Before long matches will be open to all OMI token holders if they wish to participate, and as a reminder, the Feesh Arena uses layer 2 OMI tokens (those stored in the VeVe app wallet or on IMX Layer 2). If you didn’t already know- every paid match played also burns OMI tokens from the circulating supply, so you can play to earn and play-to-burn with the Feesh Arena!
Check out this article for more details, and of course, you will need to use our bridging instructions if you wish to move your OMI from Layer 1 Ethereum to Layer 2 Immutable X, in order to play.
Play to Burn
We first mentioned the “VV Team Arcade Dodge” game in our June update, and in July the play-to-burn game went live on both iOS and Android. Stand-alone play-to-burn games utilize advertising revenue earned from your gameplay to burn OMI from circulating supply, so if you haven’t played it yet download it today and start burning Fam!
The Curious Case of ECOMI
A big shoutout goes to Chance for putting together this four-part series covering our ecosystem, products, and developments over the past few years. It’s a great community resource to share with friends or anyone that is new to the Fam and offers our company information and story from the community perspective. Thanks for creating this resource Chance, we truly appreciate all of the support, and happy birthday to you!
In case you missed it the OMI token was also recently mentioned as a top pick on the Modern Investor’s YouTube channel, as he dives into the potential of OMI and the future of the metaverse in this market analysis video.

KYC and Payout Enter Public Beta
One of the most requested features since the inception of VeVe opened to the public on July 15th. If you have not yet KYC’d your account you will no longer be able to participate in VeVe drops or in the Market until you do.
It is important to note that KYC and Payout are two separate features, and the team has been updating the articles below as new information comes to light.
The most typical user error is the submission of proof of address documents that are not on the accepted list or submitted in the correct format, so if you are yet to submit your documents please be sure to follow the instructions.
If you have already submitted a support ticket and are waiting on a reply please hang tight while the team works to respond to everyone, we appreciate your patience!
KYC: What You Need To Know
Know Your Customer (KYC) is how you will get verified in order to access all features of the VeVe app including Payout.
July kicked off with the God of Thunder himself- Thor! Two digital comic NFTs were released alongside the Mighty Mjolnir, complimenting the release of Marvel Mightys — Thor which dropped at the end of June. These releases were also timed to coincide with the cinema release of Marvel Studios Thor: Love and Thunder, as we continue to explore digital merchandising opportunities with the brand.

Star Wars fans also rejoiced with the release of crowd favorite Boba Fett in series #1 of the Star Wars™ Underworlders Collection. The Underworlders Collection features some of the most iconic bounty hunters, smugglers, and thieves from across the Star Wars™ galaxy.

United States Postal Service
July also saw a new release from USPS, Stamp Art — Classics Forever featuring handsome new versions of six stamps first issued in the mid-19th century in addition to a Souvenir Sheet.
The intaglio-printed designs feature George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Abraham Lincoln across a range of years, and the selvage is composed of postal cancellations and script from envelopes contemporaneous with the stamps.
Fans of Jurassic Park were also given the opportunity to collect Beta, one of the stars of the most recent film- Jurrasic World Dominion- and as an added bonus anyone who collected this piece or held one of the earlier drops from the series was eligible to receive an airdrop- Blue and Beta Together.
An Ultra Rare went out to holders of the three full sets (T. rex, Blue, Beta), and holders of at least one collectible from each Jurassic World Dominion set received a Common, Uncommon, or Rare.

Blue and Beta spring into action with four collectible rarities, available as an airdrop only on the VeVe app for iOS…
