Happy Friday people!

You should have received a zoom invitation to the first of our Content3 Forum zoom calls which is on Wednesday, December 8th at 1700 GMT.

In the call, we will hear from people making waves in Web3, NFTs and the Metaverse. You'll get the chance to ask questions.

We will also do some breakouts so that members can network and discuss relevant topics together.

It will be great to build out our community of creative entrepreneurs interested in these new worlds of content and technology.

The Weekly Wrap

It's been another busy week in the Metaverse, so I've selected my favourite three stories from the Content3 Discord server to see you safely into the weekend.

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen sells his letter as an NFT in Miami

@topcorner responded to my request for bizarre NFTs with a belter...

had to share this cause it’s hilarious: former Trump lawyer turns letter he wrote in prison into an NFT!! Got to admire the front, if nothing else!

Shopify enables NFTs in new Beta

@JackS shared this interesting news:

Shopify has an NFT beta program to help NFTs break out to mass audiences: https://enterprise.plus.shopify.com/2021-NFT-Beta-Program.html#webinarForm

This feels significant - when one of the world's leading shopping platforms gets into NFTs, it shows how mainstream this technology is becoming.  

Saxo's outrageous prediction that NFT music will disrupt Spotify

The trading platform has predicted that NFT-funded music will break through into the mainstream in 2022, with a shocking result:

In 2022, an NFT-based service takes hold and begins offering music from notable stars – perhaps the likes of Katy Perry, The Chainsmokers and Jason Derulo, all of whom have recently backed an effort to create a new blockchain-powered streaming platform. Other well-known artists begin pulling their music from the now “traditional” streaming platforms, which suddenly find themselves terminally disrupted. Investors see the eventual writing on the wall for podcasts, movies and other forms of digitisable contents as well. Market impact: Investors recognise that Spotify’s future is bleak, sending its shares down up to 33 percent in 2022.
