Here’s your WEEK 1:

🔔Non-Fungible Major Announcements 🔔

1. The new ERC-998 Crypto-Composable allows digital assets to own their own digital assets, like one big old happy family.

This creates the potential to tie ERC721 and ERC20 tokens together, creating the potential for ERC20 tokens and consumables to affect the attributes of NFTs. Crypto-Composables are tied to the parent non-fungible token (ERC-998) so the Cryptokitty and chow tokens can be tied together and traded. Finally, a way to encourage permissionless development between different NFT games/dApps.

2. CryptoGoods was announced this week to turn your cryptocollectibles into physical goods.

Finally, you can have a way of showing off your $200 Cryptokitty to your non-crypto friends to have them buy one too.

3. RareBits announced 6M in funding lead by Spark Capital.

Rare Bits is a marketplace where users can buy, sell, and discover crypto items. You’ll see these marketplaces emerge as the biggest trading hubs like old MMORPG forums used to be. RareBits is also planning on allowing digital content creators to launch, promote, and sell their digital collectibles through FanBits.

What’s 🔥 in NFT Twitter

Dear Blockchain Game Developers. Please create good gameplay. Thanks!

Non-fungibles are awesome because of permissionless development. That’s what makes certain non-fungibles valuable. Not because they can be sold freely for a Store of Value.

Crypto games are using pre-sales of collectibles as a means to raise money. Sounds a lot like the ICO market…you might start seeing more regulations like the below.
