Blockchain-focused pioneers are using .xyz domains to help promote the innovations and possibilities of web3. Tech startup JoinClutch.xyz is aimed at humanizing crypto and empowering more women to enter web3. Forbes-featured artist Brandon Tory’s Formless.xyz leverages blockchain technology to change the way music and other digital content is valued and distributed. Social networking platform Lore.xyz works to connect amateur and experienced crypto investors. In this week’s #BlockchainThursday, we’ll introduce you to a platform aimed at exploring what web3 contributes to culture, commerce, and society: Culture3.xyz.
Culture3.xyz is the online home of Culture3, a media platform designed to explore the impact of blockchains, the metaverse, artificial intelligence, and the changing evolution of the internet. The platform aims to exhibit the best of web3 culture to help steer the narrative and ensure its reception is positive. Culture3.xyz is founded by world-renowned Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest photographer, entrepreneur, and social activist Misan Harriman, who also serves as Editor-in-Chief. Nigerian-born Misan is one of the most widely-shared photographers of the BLM movement, and the first Black man to photograph a cover of British Vogue in the magazine’s 104-year history.1
Misan and his team use Culture3.xyz to celebrate three primary aspects of web3 culture: the creative vitality of web3 artistry, innovative web3 builders, and the communities being developed on web3. On the homepage, select the Artistry option to read features exploring the many cultural mediums being redefined by web3. Check out Art or Abomination, an exploration of the discourse around Artificial Intelligence (AI) creative tools like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Lensa’s AI selfie app. You can also select Conversation with David Jones to learn about the internationally best-selling author and poet who is now creating poetry NFTs and who believes AI is going to “revitalize the literary world.” The Builders page is where you can learn about the ways that web3 is re-wiring various industries. You can read posts like How Play-to-Earn gaming can thrive in web3, written by Forbes-featured author Greg Larson2, which dives into the crypto gaming industry and the play-to-earn (P2E) gaming trend. Visit the Communities page for a wide assortment of posts that highlight how web3 is changing the ways that people collaborate. The feature Why 2023 will be the year of PROOF is a conversation with Amanda (also known as akaStevey on Twitter), the head of Culture and Community at Proof.xyz. What began as the online home for venture capitalist Kevin Rose’s NFT-focused podcast has grown into a private art community of 1,000 NFT collectors and artists, with projects like Moonbirds.xyz and Oddities.xyz.
The media platform recently upgraded their domain from Culture3.com to the memorably rhyming Culture3.xyz. As VP Operations Leo Nasskau told us, “We built on .xyz because it is, alongside ‘connect wallet’, the primary icon of web3 that crypto-natives expect to see. Without it, our rhetoric about believing in what web3 can achieve would ring hollow.” We are inspired by Culture3’s interest in educating the public about web3, and amplifying the talent, innovation, and artistry within. You can learn more by following the platform on Twitter @culture3xyz and by visiting Culture3.xyz.
