Last Week on the 🌐 Internet

// 05.14 // PleasrDAO purchases Tor Project NFT for 500Ξ

PleasrDAO, the same DAO that purchased Edward Snowden’s NFT benefiting Freedom of the Press, won the “Dreaming at Dusk” NFT auction for 500 ETH (~$2M at time of purchase) for the benefit of the Tor Project. As strong believers in tools empowering Internet citizens, RARA expects more statement collecting by one of the most interesting curator DAO’s of 2021.

A bonus? The sale was the highest NFT sale price ever by a female artist. Congrats to the artist, Itzel Yard!

RARA Social is running for the $WRITE Race this Wednesday. We want your vote.

// 05.14 // Delphi Digital launches first NFT DAO via Syndicate protocol

Delphi Digital, a crypto fund and media company, launched Delphi INFINFT with Gmoney.eth to curate NFTs as a community.

The launch like PleasrDAO, Flamingo 🦩 DAOs, and others make it pretty clear that DAOs are the social networks of crypto where reputation and signaling are both the product and incentive system.

// 05.13 // Zora drops Auction House Protocol

Zora, an NFT platform in the middle of the Zeitgeist, launched Auction House, “an open and permissionless protocol….that allows any creator, community, platform or DAO to create and run their own curated NFT auction houses.”

Pretty cool when you realize that, like Uniswap, there is no admin key. A truly unstoppable auction house owned by none (but soon to be governed by some). Read more about the Auction House protocol here.
