              Spaces on Orb: Introducing Audio Rooms!

              Nilesh dropped us a DM bombshell: "Audio room is also live in Orb, would love to give you early access!" Did we just hear a collective WOW? Because that's exactly how we reacted!

              What's the Buzz? Spaces Now Available on Orb!

              This is a game-changer, mates! Spaces are now officially available on Orb, making it a massive start to the year for all you Bros and Sis out there. But wait, there's more!

              Audio Rooms Exclusive in Orb Communities!

              For the freshest scoop, you can currently host audio rooms exclusively inside an Orb community. It's like bringing the party directly to your community's doorstep! Did someone say beer? 😁

              Join the Audio Room Opening Party!

              Nilesh isn't holding back—he's already hosting one today (Friday the 12th) in the Orb Product Feedback community. Catch a glimpse of what's been cooking for the past few months while testing the Audio Room. Don't miss out! Set a reminder now!

              Why is this a Big Deal?

              Lenspost Labs: Onchain Innovation 🔮

              Cross-mint via your Social feed? Sure 🤗

              The Lenspost Labs team just dropped a bomb on the Lens community, and it's a game-changer! Get ready to mint NFTs right from your social feed with an upcoming Open Action on Lens. The magic touch? Let's dive 🌊

              Cross-Chain OA: Pay in WMATIC, Get NFTs Anywhere!

              Lenspost Labs just made a PR for their cross-chain Open Action. What does that mean for you? Picture this: Pay using WMATIC on Polygon, and voila! Get your NFT on any chain—currently supporting Base Zora, with more L2s like Optimism in the mix. Seamless, efficient, and a whole new level of onchain awesomeness.

              How Does It Work?

              Here's the lowdown: The module accepts WMATIC payments, calculates the amount using Chainlink feed (equivalent to 0.000777 ETH + 10%), and triggers the server to mint your NFT (Zora) directly to your wallet. Lenspost Labs are not just pushing boundaries; they're redefining them!

              Why is This a Big Deal?

              Smart Posts/Open Actions are the future of social media apps, and Lenspost Labs is leading the charge. Imagine a future where you can seamlessly perform onchain actions without leaving your favorite app on Lens. This is more than an update; it's a glimpse into the onchain future the Bros and Sis dream of.

              Major kudos to Cyber Shakti and her team at Lenspost Labs for keeping up with the pace of innovation. We love you, Sis!

                      Beer Taste - Brews on the Blockchain 🍻

                      Time to crack open a cold one and dive into the future of beer – all thanks to blockchain magic

                      Why Beer + Blockchain? 🧐

                      Forget complicated jargon; let's keep it simple. Breweries are putting your favorite brews on the blockchain for 2 crucial reasons: TRACEABILITY and SUSTAINABILITY. Imagine knowing every step of your beer's journey, from the brewery to your hands. That's what blockchain does – it's like a beer diary, but more high-tech.

                      Meet the Trailblazers 🚀

                      Who's leading the charge in the world of beer on the blockchain? None other than the pioneers like Timmermans Brewery, from Belgium. Or you can take a sip of the Sweedish Ängöl Brewery's Helt Spårat – it's not just beer; it's a traceable experience powered by IBM Food Trust blockchain.

                      How Does It Work? 🌐

                      Picture this: every beer bottle has its own digital passport on the blockchain. You scan a code, and voilà! Instant access to the who, what, and where of your beer. No more mysteries, just pure trust.

                      Why Should You Care? 🤔

                      Simple. You deserve to know what you're sipping. Blockchain ensures that your beer is genuine, and the info on that label isn't just marketing fluff. You can also verify if their claims of sustainability are true. It's like having a chat with your brewer without leaving your couch or your local pub.

                      What's Next? 🌍

                      The beer world is evolving, and blockchain is leading the way. More breweries are hopping onboard to give you the transparency you deserve and that juicy pints!

                      For now, let them work 👇


                      And that's a wrap for this week🎉

                      Thanks for tuning in.
