#2.OpenSea launched a server on Metalink to support the verified owners

OpenSea, the NFT marketplace, will add Metalink as a support channel to provide verified owners of its collections a direct channel for support, feedback and updates. Metalink is a collaboration app for NFT communities that provides users with a place to view the value of their collection and monitor associated real-time transactions. In addition, channels hosted on Metalink are token-gated, meaning that proof of ownership of an NFT or social token is required to access content.

Although there are some doubts among users about the security of this channel, openSea is sticking with the idea and promises that it will be secure. 

Also it has rolled out an upgrade to its smart contract, a proactive measure to weed out inactive listings on the platform.

#3.Metaverse built on Solana: The Cryptosea

The CryptoSea is a metaverse committed to ocean conservation through the minting of its eight NFT collections. Currently, 2/8 collections are available for minting. The second will be released on March 13: the ‘Salty Shrimps’ collection and the first one was “Shuffle Sharks”. Each collection has its own roadmap, consisting of Charity, Adventure Trip and Airdrops.

Their website is awesome, and the team has been friends since high school and built and run the platform together. 


#4. ‘Snoop Dogg’ is converting Death Row Records to NFT music

Rapper Snoop Dogg recently announced plans to make Death Row the first NFT music label. Snoop bought the label that was founded by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, among others, and with which his career began. 

The announcement was made via the social media channel Clubhouse.

“Death Row will be an NFT label,” Snoop said. “We will be releasing artists through the metaverse… Just like we broke the industry when we were the first independent major label, we want to be the first major label in the metaverse.”


#5. Picasso’s family Will Continue Producing NFTs

Marina Picasso – granddaughter of famed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso – said she and her son Florian will continue to release NFT collections featuring works by the artist. The digital collectibles caused controversy within the family, as some members disagreed with the initiative.

Earlier this year, Florian had jumped on the NFT bandwagon and released a collection of some of the painter’s famous artworks. The 30-year-old initially released 1,000 non-fungible tokens in collaboration with musician John Legend. 

The NFT collection is called “Man and the Beat.” It consists of five limited-edition sets of 200 NFTs each. They embody Picasso’s 20th-century art through both traditional and digital forms. The price of a single collectible is $5,812.
