Ticketmaster x Avenged Sevenfold NFTs 🎟️

Ticketmaster just launched a sweet new feature that lets artists give special access to concert and event tickets for folks who own a particular band's NFTs. They teamed up with the band Avenged Sevenfold for this first run to make the magic happen.

💡 How did it work? 

The first peeps to get in on the action were owners of the band's 10,000 Deathbats Club Ethereum NFTs. They got to snag tickets to upcoming shows in NY and LA before anyone else! Apparently, the NFT thing worked pretty well, with about 1,000 tickets being bought with it.

This is just the beginning for NFTs, which are already being used to get into digital spaces and live events in Web3 communities.

Disney Shutters Metaverse Amid Layoffs

Walt Disney eliminates its next-gen storytelling & consumer experiences unit, which was developing metaverse strategies. This was move was part of a broader restructuring to reduce headcount by 7,000 across the company. 

Is this thread back from January? Yes. Are we sharing it again because of how epic it is? Yes. 

Well worth the read:

Over 75% of y00ts holders have migrated to Polygon from Solana. This is truly an excellant display of how engaged the DeGods community is.

Currently the floor for y00ts is 1.6 ETH on OpenSea.
