Welcome to Edition #019 of RARA 🗞️ Weekly where we highlight new and emergent Internet 🌐 communities and artists in the social money and cryptomedia (NFTs) space.
✅ RARA Alpha Launch Week
That was one helluva of launch week. Here’s what it looked like in the numbers.
Collabs x Collabs x Collabs (5 collab events to be precise), 11 communities integrated with over 27,000 users, and 65% of spending RA!’s on NFTs. Pretty incredible.

Last Week on the 🌐 Internet
05.28 // JPG launches protocol for curators 🤝 creators
Juried Protocol Galleries (JPG) launched a “registry-based curation protocol” that essentially allows anyone to host a gallery of NFTs and get paid for any subsequent sale. JPG comes on the heals of Zora’s Auction House protocol launch which we talked about in RARA Weekly #017. The difference? 🤷♀️
Polls This Week
Community tokens have so many uses cases. Here’s what users think today.
While this is a little off topic to NFTs + social money, the community’s understanding of Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 1559 is pretty critical to on-going support and building in the Ethereum ecosystem. Learn more about EIP 1559. As for the price? Who knows.
