ECOMI Monthly Update- June 2022
Dinosaurs roamed across the VeVe app and we celebrated Pride month with Givenchy Beauty and Rewind Collective. Throw in our first IRL event of the year with DesignerCon, a play-to-earn and play-to-burn gaming partnership with the Feesh Arena, the rollout of the web platform, KYC, and the first public beta-testing of Payout and it’s easy to say that we had another huge month!
It’s hard to believe it’s already been 12 months since the coveted Pride hit VeVe, and this year we once again teamed up with Rewind Collective and Givenchy Beauty to celebrate love in all its forms, and support the LGBTQIA+ community. With the release of Pride II, which sold out almost instantly, we were able to contribute ~$130,000 directly to Mag Jeunes.
If you missed the drop you can catch up on the story behind these NFTs and all the details in this AMA between Rhys and Amar, and continue listening for a community update and the first mentions of San Diego Comic-Con. You can also join the Rewind Collective Discord server to speak directly to the artists behind the drop.
The VeVe Fam has been waiting for Jurassic Park ever since they saw a preview on David Yu’s Instagram more than a year ago, and those prayers were finally answered in June as T-Rex made her first appearance. This was quickly followed by a number of drops for the new Jurassic Park: Dominion film and saw one of the first cinema partnerships to hit VeVe.
Those who purchased tickets to the double premier viewing of the original Jurassic Park (1993) + Jurassic World: Dominion were able to redeem unique collectible posters on the app. This promotion was available to AMC customers in the USA and Germany, and to UCI cinemas in Italy.
Jurassic Park wasn’t the only cinema partnership in June, and fans of Pixar’s Lightyear were given an opportunity through AMC theaters to enter sweepstakes to win their very own Lightyear cutout digital collectible NFT- the same one that appeared in cinemas across the world.
VeVe x Dcon Kickoff Party
Our first in-person event of the year took place at the start of June in Los Angeles, in partnership with DesignerCon. We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who attended, and to 3D Retro for hosting the event, it was a massive success with a tonne of drops throughout the day, food trucks, giveaways, collectible signings, and of course- the first appearance of the VeVe co-founders in real life!
VeVe x DCon Kickoff Party + DCon 2022 Collection — Series 1
The DesignerCon 2022 collection kicks off a year of exciting drops from new and returning artists starting Sat, 4 June…
Attendees were given the opportunity to acquire Brett Crawfords Self Made piece and will receive the digital collectible version when it is released on VeVe later this year. Everyone who scanned a ticket that day will also receive a digital collectible of the VeVe logo/letters. We’ll keep you updated when these are ready to be redeemed!
Q2 priorities- Web Platform + KYC + Payout
The development team has had their work cut out for them of late, and they absolutely delivered when it came to our Q2 priorities. At the time of writing the web platform is now live, and available to all users (in public beta) and KYC is mandatory for all users to complete by the end of July. Upon completion of KYC, all users will also have access to the Payout feature, provided their account meets the requirements.
This was originally discussed in the co-founder's monthly community update, which you can catch here if you missed it!
VeVe Drops- Comics
In June we released a brand new comic publisher, with an iconic issue from Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. — Tarzan of the Apes #207!
The first Tarzan collectible drop spotlights the long-running Tarzan of the Apes comic book series, featuring the story “Origin of the Ape-Man,” written and illustrated by comics legend Joe Kubert.
This is the first time Kubert brought his creative talents to the Lord of the Jungle, depicting him as no one ever had before in his raw, gritty, and action-packed style, defining a new look for the ape-man for an entire generation of fans that still resonates in our imaginations today. It was released with 5 cover variants in blind box format.

ECOMI x Feesh Arena
The Feeshes project is 10,000 unique one-of-a-kind digital collectibles that give immediate utility in the form of animated fish that live in a customizable fish tank.
The Feesh Arena is a play-to-earn and play-to-burn game that uses layer 2 OMI tokens (those on Immutable X), that anyone can participate in. The gameplay is a balanced player vs player game, which rewards players with daily and monthly OMI token rewards, and contributes to the permanent reduction (burn) of OMI tokens from the circulating supply ⭕
ECOMI x Feesh Arena
Feesh and non-Feesh holders alike can battle it out for daily and monthly OMI prizes in the Feesh Arena, and burn OMI…
The Feesh Arena is free to play for Feesh NFT holders, and at the time of writing the Feesh Arena beta tournament is live!
If you hold a Feesh NFT you can compete with other Feesh holders for a prize pool of ~2 million OMI tokens, and if not stay tuned as the Arena will soon be available to everyone, allowing OMI holders to partake in ranked matches for prizes and OMI rewards.
VV Team Arcade Dodge
Big shoutout to Frankenfat productions for creating another fun play-to-burn game involving the VeVe team. Shoot OMI tokens at some of your favorite faces to progress through the levels (and the bosses!), and the advertising revenue generated by the game will be used to burn OMI from the circulating supply. What more could you want?!
OMI Verified on blockspot.io
ECOMI and the OMI token were both ‘verified’ on blockspot.io in June. Blockspot is a crypto ranking platform that aims to become to go-to resource for tokens, exchanges, and other crypto-related information. The verified badge is an effective way to quickly communicate the legitimacy of the company to anyone new to the space, so thanks to the blockspot team for verifying!
Epiko Regal at Crypto Expo Asia
Another gaming partner of ours- Epiko Regal- took to the stage at Crypto Expo Asia in June to showcase their tower defense game, preview the EpikoVerse, and describe their integration with the OMI token. Epiko Regal was also recently featured in The Times of India, and a big congratulations goes to Venkatesh and the team for such a successful event!
If you haven’t played Epiko Regal yet download it on Android or iOS today to start building your decks and competing in tournaments and keep an eye out for the launch of their NFT platform, where you’ll be able to spend OMI tokens on NFTs and receive in-game items and benefits. They’re also working on a special character that may appear very familiar…
TOKEN BRIDGE REMINDER 🚨
Now that everyone is gaining access to the VeVe web app and their in-app OMI wallets, we thought it pertinent to drop a reminder about bridging your OMI tokens before you can send them to the app.
So, as a reminder, you CANNOT send OMI tokens directly from exchanges to the VeVe app.
You MUST bridge your tokens first, which means depositing them onto Immutable X layer 2 before you can send them to your in-app wallets.
Once you bridged and have layer 2 OMI tokens, however, you can transact gas-free, and also use them for other applications built on Immutable X, such as in the Feeshes Arena. To learn more about token bridging check out our walkthrough guide below!
