What's up, Block? - November 20 to 26, 2021

Updates for partners and friends on building the Meta Blocks Protocol

Welcome to the first issue of โ€œWhatโ€™s up, block?โ€, our update aggregation for partners and friends. We are testing out a public update to start with. In future, we might make this private.

It has been a lovely last week for the Meta Blocks protocol.


  • A fund closely connected to MonkeDAO ๐Ÿฆand other famous NFT projects agreed to join the cap table ๐Ÿ’ซ (verbal commitment ๐Ÿ™Š). Their support will make it easy to onboard existing projects as partners in the Meta Blocks universe
  • In terms of seed round, there is enough interest to close right now, but we think itโ€™s important to bring a few more strategic partners ๐Ÿค
  • Sarthak is working in full swing to hire a senior 3d artist ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽจ - about 10 interviews scheduled for the next week
  • We already had partners to help with Smart Contract and Android app development. We have asked them to start the initial research and a proof-of-concept (We are paying them out of pocket ๐Ÿ’ธ)
  • Figured out a way to manage combinatoric explosion of our avatars using the awesome work done by an open-source project called comicgen (https://gramener.com/comicgen/) - Our ๐Ÿค– avatars will be built on top of their foundations
  • We published two articles ๐Ÿ“ - one about protocol (https://metablocks.world/blog/clay-bricks-vs-legos) and other about our insights (https://metablocks.world/blog/lets-start-with-blocks) : retweets are much appreciated
  • Tweet to amplify:
  • We are hosting a ๐ŸฆTwitter Space with @solNFTradar on โ€œThe Metaverse belongs to YOUโ€. Please join us and bring your friends ๐Ÿค—. Sarthak will reach out with details.

Not Good:

  • India is going to ban crypto (yet again ๐Ÿ˜…) but this time itโ€™s a bill not a draft. This means that crypto businesses will face hurdles, so we decided against an Indian entity
  • We are in talks with a law firm ๐Ÿ’ผ in Singapore, a law firm in Mumbai and two online services that help setting up a crypto friendly entity. Figuring out liquidity and invoicing issues. Hope this will be done soon.

Our most immediate hurdle is to get a legal entity and receive funds. The hiring aspect is under control! Weโ€™ll be publishing a roadmap soon.

If you have any questions, please reach me on email, telegram or discord.
