NxtLvlWater.xyz and NxtLvlFarms.xyzInternet.bs customer (Philippines)

You’re in for a special treat this week, #GenXYZ. We’re giving you a double dose of #WebsiteWednesday by highlighting two sites that are reshaping the way we use resources and helping to build a sustainable future: NxtLvlWater.xyz and NxtLvlFarms.xyz.

Some of you may have recognized these two sites share a familiar brand to a past #WebsiteWednesday site, NxtLvlAcademy.xyz. That’s because NxtLvlAcademy.xyz, NxtLvlFarms.xyz, and NxtLvlWater.xyz are all projects launched by Bainbridge MP, a tech investment company from the Philippines seeking to support technologies that will bring impactful change to the most basic global problems. Bainbridge uses each specific “NxtLvl” .xyz site to explain the goals of that project, the methods they will use to accomplish those goals, and how you can get involved.

NxtLvlWater.xyz is aimed at tackling the clean water crisis in developing countries, where water is too expensive, too difficult to access, too poor quality to safely drink, and too harmful to the environment. By using small scale solutions like modularized water production units, as well as large scale solutions like bespoke water production systems, all of which are capable of running off of renewable energy up to 100%.

NxtLvlFarms.xyz is designed to improve the quality and accessibility of produce in the Philippines, which they are doing with their organic and non-GMO products that are grown indoors away from pests, meaning no pesticides. These vegetables can be delivered within 24 hours, ensuring freshness, and are also grown with little impact on the environment.

NxtLvlFarms.xyz, NxtLvlWater.xyz, and NxtLvlAcademy.xyz are inspiring projects not simply because of the huge scope of the problems they’ve chosen to take on, but also because the positive changes they’re creating will benefit many generations to come. Dreaming big and think globally are hallmark qualities of #GenXYZ, and these three .xyz sites stands as a great example for internet users around the world to follow.

Every company functions differently. Some have manuals full of rules and instructions down to the most minimal detail, while some are lax and let employees manage themselves. This range allows people to find a company structure that may best fit their personality. But no matter your preference or style, it always helps teams work better when they know what their job actually is. And for managers, it’s always a struggle to lead a team while also helping your employees to grow and develop. The team at CultivateMe.xyz thinks they’ve cracked the code on organization, motivation, and progress for companies. And the best part? You can create an account for free!

So using their product to build your own personal mastery machine allows you to improve employee talent while also helping to turn employees into long-term team members. Their program is decided on by 5 major questions:

  1. What’s my job?

  3. How do I learn them?

In the classic film Back to the Future, they travel through time to the year 2015 where they witness tons of futuristic gadgets, including flying cars. While we aren’t quite at flying cars yet, the world is making many advances in the world of self-driving technology. In the past, we’ve brought you our own Starship.xyz, creators of the self-driving delivery robot. But now we’re excited to bring you another .xyz member in the autonomous industry: Fluxauto.xyz

Fluxauto.xyz is 16-person startup based in Bangalore. They were excited about the new opportunity of commercial companies using self-driving vehicles but discovered that major companies like Uber and Tesla are developing vehicles and technology that are far too expensive for most trucking companies to use. So the team set out to develop their own affordable tech that can allow any type of truck to be turned into a self-driving vehicle. The company plans to have 2500 of their kits in vehicles by August 2018. Fluxauto.xyz is already receiving a ton of attention from news outlets such as TechCrunch and The Economic Times, and came in 9th place for TECH30’s 2017 “Top 30 promising technology startups from India”.

To see Fluxauto.xyz in action you can check out their test footage video here. We love seeing another #GenXYZ member not only developing the future of technology, but also using their skills to benefit less financially-able companies.

Type-A.xyzGoDaddy customer (Philippines)

#GenXYZ how do you normally start your day? Quick morning workout? Or a big hearty breakfast? The team here at XYZ loves nothing more than to start our day off with a nice cup of coffee. With coffee shops on every corner and thousands of brands to choose from, it can be hard to establish your place in such a booming business. So how does this week’s #WebsiteWednesday manage to stick out? (Besides the .xyz domain of course!) Type-A.xyz is breaking the mold with their own take on cold brew, delivered right to your home or business.

Type-A.xyz is located in Manila, Phillipines and is a cold brew subscription service. Their cool and functional bottle design is what gets customers interested, but the great taste is what keeps them subscribed. Their coffee is single origin from Panama, and the low-extract process creates a light flavor with hints of fruit. But what really makes Type-A.xyz shine is it’s brilliantly designed bottle. The outside is marked with serving measurements, so you know exactly how much to pour. Simply pour 1 measurement of the bottle with an even amount of your favorite addition, such as creamer or milk, and add ice. Fast and simple for any morning, and an easy solution for that afternoon pick me up.

“We are fans of specialty coffee but admit that there are days when making a hand brew from scratch is just too much work. With Type A, a cold brew made from 100% Panama beans, we wanted to develop an instant specialty coffee that retains all the nuanced tasting notes of a crafted coffee (ours are dark chocolate and orange peel) – just add water.

We want Type A to be synonymous with cold brew coffee, and grow a community of A-types who love the brand. In fact, we’ve started a blog (type-a-intel.xyz) to talk to them about everything from recipes involving Type A to essays about things that would interest overachievers, say, how to deal when your dog has OCD.

We liked the suggestion of “a to z” when you type out the URL. We’re overachieving that way.”
– Anna Canlas, Type-A.xyz

We love seeing the #GenXYZ continue to be at the forefront of innovation. From custom 3D printing, to functional and fun community living spaces, to A.I. text unscramblers, we’re always proud to provide a domain as unique as you are. If you’re ready to get some of Type-A.xyz’s cold brew for yourself, you can subscribe here. You can also follow them on Facebook or Instagram to get the latest updates. Do you think you have the next great idea? Then lock down YourIdea.xyz now, and keep changing the world!

Sammy6000.xyzTucows customer (United Kingdom)

We always love seeing another creative professional using an.xyz domain to display their personal achievements and talented skills. In the past we’ve brought you the digital animations of SoaLee.xyz, the visual novel ghost adventure of Ghostpia.xyz, and the 3D art pieces of Lumatic.xyz. But for this week’s #WebsiteWednesday we’re excited to feature an intriguing new creative designer currently residing in London, Sammy6000.xyz.

Sam Jacobs, or better known as Sammy6000.xyz, has achieved a lot in the design space across the globe. In Shanghai, China he helped to co-found a creative agency called Jellymon, where he resided as the creative director for 9 years. After much success they were even able to open up a second office in Beijing. During this time he also co-founded China’s first street art gallery Da>Space. But this past year he took on an exciting new challenge: Creative Director at the world-renowned news station The Guardian.

“I wanted to create a portfolio site that stood out, on which I could show off an edited selection of my projects. I would like to develop the site further in the future, but I don’t have specific goals beyond having a nice place to put my work.

[I chose to build on a .xyz domain] because .com seems boring and predictable. It also sounds old fashioned. A .xyz domain sounds fun, cool and is really memorable. It just matches my style more and what I wanted to get across with my site.”
– Sam Jacobs of Sammy6000.xyz

During this impressive career climb, he has been able to work with multitudes of big name companies, such as Adidas, Nike, Converse, and Red Bull. He was even able to land the first ever design collaboration with a Chinese State-Owned company, The Shanghai Watch Company. But his hard work doesn’t stop at just design, he also has done research projects for BMW, Hennessy and Apple.

We love the uniqueness of our #GenXYZ community and are proud to give everyone an easy way to express themselves online. The best part about art is that every piece is new and different, and what better way to stand out than with an .xyz domain? So why wait, check out right now to see if YourName.xyz is available, and show the world your passion!

Sleepover.xyzGoDaddy customer (Canada)

Many business owners in the #GenXYZ community know first hand what a struggle it can be to not only of find online real estate, but office real estate as well. Our #WebsiteWednesday this week solved that issue with a new business model, one that has garnered them praise for creating the “future of how retail works”: Sleepover.xyz.

Sleepover.xyz is a pop-up store in Toronto born out of the program thisopenspace, a startup that carries a roster of buildings and retail spaces that can be used for short term services, events, and now retail outlets. The Sleepover.xyz pop-up is unique because it is the first example of thisopenspace’s innovative new idea of offering “retail as a service”, meaning that customers benefit from being able to get the items they want right when they want them in store, and the retailer can focus on satisfying their customers’ needs by simply offering great products instead of fretting about rent, taxes, and the myriad other issues standard brick and mortar stores face.

This retail revolution has already caught the eye of press outlets nationwide, including Canada’s Global News, Daily Hive, The Toronto Star, and Toronto Life to name a few. And, thisopenspace’s seed round funding included investment from Scott Lake, CEO of Shopify.

Sleepover.xyz is a retail store of the future. Any online-first brand can open a retail store of their own within days by simply sending their products to thisopenspace. We provide merchandising, marketing, staffing, and more. Brands get affordable access to physical retail by renting just a table, shelf, or rack in a 3,000 sqft retail storefront. We launched the website to highlight the brands and in-store events happening at Sleepover.

We chose .xyz because it’s unexpected and that reflects the brand values of thisopenspace and Sleepover. We got it from GoDaddy because it’s the easiest place to buy a domain. We have all our company domains on GoDaddy and never think of any other site to purchase a domain.”

– Yashar Nejati, Creator of Sleepover.xyz

When faced with a challenge, we’ve seen time and time again that the members of #GenXYZ are ready to not only find a way to succeed, but to change their industry along the way. Sleepover.xyz is shaping a new future for retail, and in choosing a .xyz domain they got the website that perfectly matches their intrepid attitude.

ViceRoyal.xyzNetwork Solutions customer (United States)

Our #WebsiteWednesday series is filled with artists behind some of the biggest brands and entertainment projects in the world. There’s Xand.xyz’s art direction on ad campaigns for Adidas and Nike, JHill.xyz’s character animation on Titanfall, SoaLee.xyz’s VFX animation in The Last of Us and Uncharted, and HBO’s microsite for it’s critically acclaimed hit show Silicon Valley on Hooli.xyz, just to name a few.

JP’s list of credits working on box office smashing movies is nearly endless, including the Iron Man, Hunger Games, Captain America, and Thor series, The Avengers, Rango, The Revenant, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, The Big Short, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and many more. JP has also worked on some of the most popular video games in the world as well, including League of Legends, Best Friends, and Need for Speed.

JP also uses his site to show off his original works of fine art, including paintings and drawings inspired by many different styles and artists. The split between JP’s personal and professional works of art on ViceRoyal.xyz are a display of the two halves of his life as an artist, and a unique way he utilizes the personal portfolio site format.

“It had been a while since I had my work up, so I thought this portfolio website would be a great way to consolidate my commercial work in VFX and my personal projects. Showcasing all my work with a tailored interface will hopefully allow me to collaborate with other artists and keep my creative output up to date.

I chose a .xyz domain I spend most of my days staring at 3D software, having the X,Y, & Z axis in the name felt appropriate.”
JP Monroy, Creator of ViceRoyal.xyz

Your .xyz domain is what you make it, and JP has made his ViceRoyal.xyz domain into a site that projects his art and vision just as far as the movies he’s worked on have. What’s stopping you from making your own personal site and projecting your own passion to the world? Join JP and register YourName.xyz today to get started showing your talents to the world.
