• Polygon and WWF have entered into a partnership to use ‘trash NFTs’ to help remove real waste from the ocean.
• A hybrid metaverse has been created where players can purchase trash NFTs to help contribute to this cause.
• Polygon Labs has also conducted research into emissions and is working towards improving sustainability on the network.
Polygon Partners with WWF
Polygon has announced a partnership with WWF Deutschland to use ‘trash NFTs’ for removing real waste from the ocean as part of their #OceanDetox project. The collaboration will involve creating a hybrid metaverse, powered by the Polygon network, in which players can purchase trash NFTs in order to contribute towards cleaning up the ocean.
The SaveYour.World Project
The SaveYour.World project is an initiative that seeks to educate people about the crisis of plastic and other trash polluting our oceans. In addition, it aims to motivate people to take action against this problem through its “play to donate” approach. This project is just one example of how blockchain technology can be used for environmental solutions and will serve as an encouragement for traditional climate solutions, as well as new dApps, that explore how blockchain can help tackle our most pressing environmental challenges at this critical juncture.
Polygon Labs has conducted research into emissions on Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains and had found success in reducing emissions by 99.9%. This groundbreaking discovery was noticed by WWF who saw potential in partnering with Polygon due to its focus on sustainability initiatives on its network.
The introduction of Trash NFTs allows players in the SaveYourWorld metaverse to have a direct impact on real-world change by purchasing these tokens and contributing towards removing real trash from oceans around the world. It is hoped that this will be just the beginning of further expansion into other environments such as forests in future collaborations between Polygon and WWF Deutschland .
Through this creative collaboration between Polygon and WWF Deutschland, we are now able to use blockchain technology for environmental purposes in innovative ways that directly benefit our planet while also promoting education among gamers who join this virtual world dedicated towards saving our oceans from pollution caused by plastics and other hazardous materials
• Orbeon Protocol (ORBN) has skyrocketed 1400% in its fourth phase of presale.
• OKB (OKB) and Solana (SOL) have seen a significant drop in value.
• Market analysts believe the price of ORBN will continue to rise.
The crypto market has been experiencing a volatile period, with some coins experiencing notable losses while others are seeing substantial gains. The most notable among the latter is Orbeon Protocol (ORBN), which has been on a steep upward trajectory. The decentralized investment platform has seen huge gains of 1400% in the fourth phase of its presale, leading many market analysts to believe that the price will continue to rise.
Meanwhile, two other coins, OKB (OKB) and Solana (SOL), have seen a significant drop in value. OKB (OKB) is the native coin of the OKX trading platform, which is one of the most popular places to buy and sell cryptocurrencies today. The OK Blockchain Foundation owns the OKB coin. OKB (OKB) is a Ethereum chain ERC-20 token and is used in and out of the OKX exchange for many different things, including determining and paying exchange fees and giving its owners the right to vote and rewards for staking. Despite having a good start to the year, OKB (OKB) has recently lost its footing and is now trading at $35.87, which is less than its ATH.
Solana (SOL) is an open-source project that uses the permissionless nature of blockchain technology to offer decentralized financial services. Even though work on Solana (SOL) began in 2017, the Solana (SOL) Foundation was formed in 2019. Solana is a proof-of-stake (PoS) based blockchain and is designed to offer extremely fast transaction speeds and low transaction fees. The price of Solana (SOL) has also taken a downturn, with its price currently standing at $14.70.
With the crypto market in a volatile state, it remains to be seen which other coins will experience a price change in the near future. However, the rapid gains of Orbeon Protocol (ORBN) have many market analysts believing that the price will continue to rise.

VeChain, the public blockchain driving the deployment of sustainable applications, has announced that it will organize an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) session soon as the 2023 Steering Committee elections draw closer. This session will allow the VeChain community members to submit their questions for any candidates.

The VeChain foundation’s official Twitter account revealed the news, stating that they are open to submissions and encouraging the community to sign up via their Medium post. With the elections coming up, they are asking the VeChain family to share their questions in the comments.
The last few years have been difficult for global economies due to unprecedented events such as the COVID-19 pandemic, rising inflation, economic meltdown, supply chain disruption and geopolitical turmoil across Europe. Nevertheless, the VeChain foundation has remained resilient despite these unwanted events. They have launched several new tools and technologies, such as VeCarbon, which is being used by hundreds of billion-dollar companies to manage carbon emissions for a sustainable future.
The upcoming AMA session will be an important part of the 2023 Steering Committee election process. It will give the VeChain community members the opportunity to ask questions directly to the candidates and get to know them better. The VeChain foundation has also stated that they will be providing additional details soon.
The decentralization of the VeChainThor governance core model will be a major milestone for the project. It will enable true digital sustainability, allowing the real-world economy to utilize web3 technology. With the 2023 Steering Committee elections only a few months away, the VeChain community is looking forward to the upcoming AMA session and the bright future that lies ahead.
• Twitter is reportedly working on a feature that will allow users to purchase crypto coins.
• The feature will be powered by payment giant Stripe and will be used to support content creators.
• This is part of Twitter’s initiative to diversify its revenue following a huge slump in advertising revenues.
Twitter Inc., the social media platform owned by Elon Musk, is preparing to launch a new feature that will allow users to purchase crypto coins. The feature, which is being developed in collaboration with payment giant Stripe, is expected to provide users with an easy way to support content creators of their choice at a small fee. This comes as part of Twitter’s initiative to diversify its revenue streams following a slump in advertising revenues.
This new feature will be available in the form of a „Coins“ menu item, which will take users to a purchase screen. The feature is currently in its development phase, and Twitter is working on ways to improve its compatibility with other cryptocurrencies. For instance, the company is reportedly exploring ways to integrate Dogecoin into its platform, which could potentially increase its usage and drive its price to $0.10.
This move by Twitter is part of its larger mission to become the „everything app“ that Musk envisioned before the company’s acquisition. The company has already released a crypto feature that enables users to search for up-to-date price information and has also launched a paid subscription service, Twitter Blue, which has so far not been well received.
Twitter is also exploring ways to incorporate blockchain technology and the crypto market into its platform. This could potentially open the platform up to a range of new possibilities, such as the ability to send and receive cryptocurrency payments, or use crypto tokens to access exclusive content.
Ultimately, this new feature could be a game-changer for Twitter, allowing it to generate additional revenue and attract more users to its platform. In addition, the integration of blockchain technology into the platform could provide a much-needed boost to the crypto market and strengthen its presence in the mainstream.
• Terra Classic (LUNC) has become compatible with Interchain Station, Lead developer confirms.
• The Tera Classic (LUNC) has seen a boost in market capitalization and 24-hour traded volume.
• The integration is expected to have a long-term positive impact on LUNC price.
Terra Classic (LUNC), a blockchain network that boasts a market capitalization of approximately $981,178,831 and a 24-hour traded volume of about $97,623,378, has received a huge boost following a successful integration with Interchain Station. This integration will allow the network to join a list of other blockchains including Osmosis, Juno, and SEI, among others to steer forward the Web3 industry.
The announcement was made by Terraform Labs lead developer Jared via his official Twitter account. He indicated that more chains will be joining the Interchain Station to enable seamless communication between different blockchains at all times. In addition, he announced that a support team for the Interchain Station will be underway in the next few days.
The integration of the Interchain Station is expected to have a long-term positive impact on LUNC price. DeFi developers will be able to access oracle data from different chains via the Interchain Station with ease. This will allow them to create more efficient and reliable financial products, resulting in an increase in demand and price for LUNC.
However, the announcement did not have a positive impact on LUNC price on Wednesday. According to market data provided by Coingecko, LUNC’s price is down approximately 2.6 percent in the past 24 hours to trade around $0.00016310. The TFL Interchain integration was expected to be unveiled on January 12 following technical delays, but Jared surprised the LUNC community with the announcement earlier than expected.
Overall, the integration between Terra Classic (LUNC) and Interchain Station is a major breakthrough for the Web3 industry. By enabling seamless communication between different blockchains, developers will be able to create more reliable and efficient financial products, resulting in an increase in demand and price for LUNC.
