Ecosystem Highlights

  • Events
  • RARI Chain
  • Protocol + RARI Chain Grants Sprint #1
    • Preview of grant recipients reviewed by the Grants Committee:
      • Candidate 1 - Leading coin tracker website suggested to create an ecosystem page for RARI Chain dApps and add RARI Chain to its new feature allowing members of community to mint NFT and forward NFT to 14 supported EVM chains.
        Moreover, the team showed interest in creating a page tracking popular NFT collections and powering it by Rarible API.
      • Candidate 2 - Infrastructure for loyalty programs powered by web3 comes to Rarible Protocol and RARI Chain. Collaborated with the Sandbox Game, and getting 80-90k MAUs for their infra. They want to build complete functionality so that any brand/creator/NFT collection can deploy on Rari chain with near-zero effort.
      • Candidate 3 - The project supports a portable reputation for DAO contributors using NFTs as proof of work. The project will create identity protocol on RARI chain as a use case to mark the achievements of DAO contributors and make them serve as an immutable resume.
      • Candidate 4 - The project represents a public good designed to preserve NFT data in decentralized, verifiable Filecoin storage. The use case is to come to RARI Chain and support RARI Chain NFTs’ storage in a decentralized manner.
      • Candidate 5 - No code NFT drops for Farcaster Frames. Add an image, choose a chain, choose parameters, add gas, paste in your link to Farcaster.
      • Candidate 6 - A go-to free NFT launchpad that simplifies the process of introducing your unique collection to the digital world would like to come to RARI Chain. The use case falls into creator tooling category and aims to support artists with simplified NFT creation and launch.
  • RARI Rewards
