BCL.xyzGoDaddy customer – (United States)

Many innovative blockchain-focused businesses are establishing their online homes on .xyz domains. NFT studio and Web3 platform Mojito.xyz designs and operates Ethereum-compatible NFT marketplaces, games, and communities. Venture capital firm Paradigm.xyz invests in crypto and Web3 projects. Recently rebranded Block.xyz develops popular financial services including leading credit card reader Square. This week’s #WebsiteWednesday features FOX Entertainment’s new NFT studio aimed to empower creators and brands as they make their way into the Web3 landscape: BCL.xyz.

BCL.xyz

BCL.xyz is the online home of FOX Entertainment’s new NFT-focused Web3 studio Blockchain Creative Labs. FOX Entertainment and their animation studio Bento Box Entertainment created the Los Angeles-based studio to provide content creators, Intellectual Property owners, and advertising partners with tools and solutions to build, launch, manage, and market NFT-related content and experiences. In June 2021, FOX and Bento Box formed a $100 million creator fund that will be managed by Blockchain Creative Labs to identify growth opportunities in the NFT space. Later that summer, in August 2021, FOX also invested in blockchain content monetization platform Eluvio. As part of the investment, which was valued at $100 million, Eluvio provides the underlying technology powering BCL.xyz’s innovative projects.

The studio has already developed unique, NFT-focused projects. In March 2022, BCL.xyz partnered with singer-songwriter, actress, and businesswoman Dolly Parton to launch “Dollyverse,” an audience-focused Web3 experience that debuted at Austin-based film and music festival South by Southwest (SXSW). “Dollyverse” includes a collection of official and certified Dolly NFT collectibles for purchase during and after SXSW.

Fans at Dolly Parton’s SXSW performance had access to claim a free POAP NFT badge. POAP is an easy proof-of-attendance protocol developed by fellow .xyz community member POAP.xyz. Attendees simply scanned Dolly’s QR code during the event, and were rewarded with a free NFT linking either to a commemorative poster or a copy of the new album. Eluvio live-streamed her performance on “Dollyverse,” and fans that streamed the event also received POAPs authenticating their participation. Attendees created a crypto wallet and connected it to the SXSW x BCL Marketplace at SXSW.BCL.xyz.

The response to “Dollyverse” at SXSW was immense. On Friday, March 25, 2022, the festival awarded Dolly Parton with the Grulke Prize for Career Act, an honor for an established artist who appeared at SXSW to launch an important new project.

In May 2021, Fox shared that BCL.xyz will launch a dedicated digital marketplace powered by Eluvio for the upcoming animated comedy titled “Krapopolis,” which will be the first animated series to be curated entirely on the blockchain. Created by Dan Harmon, who also created the comedy series “Community” and “Rick and Morty,” the new series is set in mythical ancient Greece and centers on a flawed family of humans, gods, and monsters. Viewers will have opportunities to access NFTs of one-of-a-kind characters and background art, and tokens that provide exclusive social experiences to engage and reward superfans.

Bento Box Entertainment Co-Founder and CEO Scott Greenberg also serves as CEO of BCL.xyz. Scott is also responsible for overseeing the newly formed content fund. Many Web3-focused businesses like BCL.xyz are making their homes on .xyz domains. 

You can learn more about the studio and its exciting projects by following on Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and visiting BCL.xyz.

Questy.xyzGandi customer – (India)

The increased popularity of remote operations has encouraged many organizations to rethink their ways of doing business. As more and more companies provide their employees with the freedom to work from home, they may face challenges in the remote recruitment process of new candidates. The .xyz community is home to many tech startups that have recognized emerging obstacles and used innovation and forward-thinking to develop digital solutions to overcome them. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday we’ll introduce you to a member of the .xyz community whose next-generation domain is a fitting choice to promote their next-generation recruitment tool: Questy.xyz.

Questy.xyz

Questy.xyz provides a digital talent measurement solution that aims to automate recruitment workflow, assess candidates’ skills, and map a complete employee development lifecycle. Questy.xyz CEO Chintan Shah recently celebrated his 11th anniversary with parent company Promact Infotch, where his journey originally began as a Junior Software Developer. In August of 2019, while working as a Product Manager for the India-based software development company, Chintan co-founded a new branch of the company called Questy Solutions. Questy Solutions would later develop Questy.xyz. Chintan is now the CEO of Questy Solutions, as well as the Chief Marketing Officer of Promact.

Questy.xyz

Questy.xyz offers a feature specific to remote hiring called the “Interviewee Only Test.” Organizations can use this feature to develop their interview questions and then share a link which contains the interview and a recording feature with each of their candidates. Recorded responses can then be shared with all necessary members of the hiring organization for proper review. Questy.xyz claims this process has benefits to the hiring organization as well as to the candidates. For the organization, the “Interviewee Only Test” can reduce scheduling conflicts and enhance collaborative hiring.  For the candidates, the feature’s process can create a less intimidating interview experience. This may be especially helpful for recent college graduates new to the interview experience. Questy.xyz states that setting candidates at ease helps them “to overcome their initial jitters and gives them the opportunity to shine.” The opportunity to assess candidates who are more comfortable and confident can also be a benefit to the hiring organization.

Questy.xyz

When you launch a forward-thinking digital solution, your website should match that forward-thinking nature. As stated on their Linkedin page, Questy.xyz bills their service as “a next-generation talent measurement tool that enables recruiters and organizations to make evidence-based hiring decisions.” It’s fitting that they made an online home at .xyz alongside many fellow next-generation innovators and creators around the globe. To learn more about their digital solution, you can follow them on Linkedin, Facebook @questy.xyz, Twitter @questy_xyz, or visit Questy.xyz.

a0k1verse.xyzGoDaddy customer – (United States)

The .xyz community is growing with unique NFT-focused projects. Web3 platform Mojito.xyz helps businesses and organizations create NFT marketplaces. Decentralized autonomous organization FlamingoDAO.xyz created a platform for community investing in NFTs. Ethereum-based exploration game Sipher.xyz is centered around customizable NFT characters.

In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’ll introduce you to an NFT membership community created by prominent DJ and NFT enthusiast Steve Aoki: a0k1verse.xyz.

A0k1verse.xyz

A0k1verse.xyz is the online home of a new NFT-driven membership community created by Grammy-nominated DJ Steve Aoki. Members of a0k1verse.xyz, otherwise known as citizens, can gather assorted perks, such as exclusive access to live and virtual concerts. To join, you can use Ethereum-based crypto tokens known as A0K1 Credits to redeem the A0K1VERSE Passport NFT, which serves as your personal admission ticket to the community. A0k1verse.xyz and the A0K1VERSE Passport NFT were created in collaboration with smart contract startup Manifold.xyz, which provides creators with a means to mint NFTs embedded with smart contract technology. In the summer of 2021, Steve announced his involvement with Manifold.xyz in a series of Tweets about a project called Dominion X. Steve collaborated with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios to present Dominion X, the first episodic series to launch on the blockchain1. Dominion X was minted from a custom smart contract via Manifold.xyz with unique interactive qualities directly within the NFT.

A0k1verse.xyz

The unique A0K1VERSE Passport NFT comes equipped with various benefits and opportunities. In addition to exclusive live and virtual concert admission, holders will gain priority access to exclusive digital collectibles, including NFTs for use in leading blockchain-based play-to-earn game Sandbox. A0K1VERSE Passport NFT holders can also be the first to hear about new music and NFT updates, acquire free a0k1verse.xyz apparel, and gain tokenized access to limited items from exclusive apparel collaborations. Each A0K1VERSE Passport NFT can be upgraded using additional A0K1 Credits. As members take part in community events and amass more A0K1 Credits, they will earn stamps in their evolving passport which can unlock access to new perks. The A0K1VERSE Passport NFT will also be interoperable with NFT projects from other creators.

A0k1verse.xyz

Citizens of a0k1verse.xyz are helping to spread awareness of the new community by sharing their freshly minted A0K1VERSE Passport NFTs on Twitter. NFT collector MsgCrazies.Eth tweeted “Super excited about @a0k1verse. Look forward to big and better things down the road.2” The platform has encouraged promotion from their members by hosting flash contests that award a dozen free A0K1 Credits to the first citizen to set specific a0k1verse.xyz NFTs as their Twitter profile picture.

Web3 mavericks like Steve Aoki continue to use .xyz domains to bring their exciting new NFT projects to life. With the creatively spelled a0k1verse.xyz, Steve recognized that it is a good idea to register additional domains with common misspellings, or other ways people might try to type in your website. He also registered aokiverse.xyz so that anyone who types in the name phonetically will still end up on a0k1verse.xyz. You can learn more about Steve and his new NFT community by following the platform on Twitter and Discord, or by visiting a0k1verse.xyz.

TheHug.xyzGoogle Domains customer – (United States)

The .xyz community is home to many incredible women makers, innovators, and leaders. While March is Women’s History Month, we celebrate women all year round as part of our mission to help the next generation of internet users get online. As long-time supporters of Indonesia-based non-profit organization Generation Girl, we share their interest in inspiring young women to become leaders in the historically male-dominated STEM fields and appreciate the opportunity to provide .xyz domains to help further education in tech for woman-identified developers and website owners. We regularly highlight awesome women-led websites that demonstrate the true versatility of memorable .xyz domains. For example, climate activist and researcher Clover Hogan established her non-profit organization’s online home on ForceofNature.xyz to help fellow young people realize their change-making potential in the face of climate change. Australia-based digital artist Serwah Attafuah uses Serwah.xyz to showcase her digital art and NFT creations. Marketing manager and content creator Sarah Wohlner uses SaltandPepper.xyz for a mouth-watering food and travel-themed blog. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’ll introduce you to a women-led community platform aimed at developing a more equitable Web3: TheHug.xyz.

TheHug.xyz

TheHug.xyz is the online home of HUG, a community platform designed to embrace and empower all Web3 creators. Facebook Live creator Randi Zuckerberg and venture capital firm M13 founder Debbie Soon agreed that for marginalized groups like women, non-native English speakers, BIPOC, people with disabilities, neurodivergent people, and LBGTQ+ folks, launching a new Web3 project can be challenging. Randi and Debbie also share an interest in embracing, advising, mentoring, and empowering aspiring Web3 creators. These shared beliefs and interests motivated their development of TheHug.xyz, aimed to level the playing field for all Web3 creators to create what they refer to as “the inclusiverse.” TheHug.xyz’s original project is an application-based creator accelerator program known as groupHug. This program offers mentorship from Randi and a network of industry leaders in technology and the arts. The groupHug program also facilitates brand partnerships, provides PR exposure, and assists with preparation for institutional fundraising. In March 2022, TheHug.xyz introduced HUGHub, a more accessible review and aggregation platform for NFT projects and creators.

HUGhub is designed to amplify and reward the curation and discovery of new creators, and offers benefits to collectors as well as creators. Collectors can expect opportunities to help them discover creators and projects of interest including:

  • Concise one-pagers that provide the most relevant information about a creator or project
  • Personal galleries to curate and demonstrate which creators you are most excited about
  • Discovery of new projects based on what you’ve liked in the past
  • A helpful way to discover creators and projects through unique filtering such as:
    • Art style and/or medium
    • Founder attributes (women-founded, Black-founded, Asian-founded, etc.)
    • Mission and social causes (sustainability, LGBTQ+, etc.)

Creators can receive benefits to help them connect with others, including:

  • Simplified ways to connect with collectors who are looking for creators like you and projects like yours
  • Connection to other creators open to collaboration
  • Inspiration from other collections and detailed information to inform your own launch roadmap and community-building

TheHug.xyz

TheHug.xyz’s HUGhub is free to access, but you can unlock special features, engagement, and token-earning opportunities with the HUG Membership Pass NFT, which is anticipated to mint in April 2022. HUG Membership Pass NFTs are animated hugs that come in matching pairs. Members are encouraged to send a hug to someone else who may not have been able to afford one. HUG Membership Pass NFTs also act as a mint pass for the Genesis NFT, which will comes with additional utilities, including strategy sessions with Randi, Debbie, and the rest of the HUG team and their team of advisors, and monthly mystery boxes with NFTs curated by the HUG team. Genesis NFT holders can also attend the HUG NFT awards show honoring women and minority creators.

TheHug.xyz

Debbie and Randi are working to ensure the future of Web3 is built equitably. Just as .xyz is reshaping the future of the internet, TheHug.xyz is working to reshape the future of Web3. You can learn more by following the platform on Twitter and joining their weekly on/airHUG Twitter Spaces, or by visiting TheHug.xyz.
