Who’s On a Roll 👀

1️⃣Grayscale Investments has successfully contested the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over its Bitcoin ETF application. The SEC had previously cited concerns about Grayscale’s safety measures. Judge Neomi Rao, however, found the SEC’s rejection lacking justification. This victory gives Grayscale another shot, but the final outcome remains uncertain. We’ll make sure to keep an eye on this story as it continues to unfold.

2️⃣ Solana Pay has partnered with Shopify to enable crypto payments for its numerous businesses. Built on the Solana blockchain, the initial payment mode will be USDC given its appeal to merchants and regulatory stability. Shopify, representing 10% of U.S. e-commerce, can benefit from nearly fee-free transactions using Solana, compared to traditional credit card fees. Additionally, the integration facilitates easy creation of merchant loyalty programs through NFT tokens.

3️⃣ Coca-Cola has released its “Masterpiece NFT” collection on Base, Coinbase’s ETH Layer 2 platform. The collection blends iconic artworks like “The Scream” and “Girl With a Pearl Earring” with contemporary pieces and the recognizable Coca-Cola bottle.

This isn’t Coke’s first jump into NFTs, they previously auctioned NFTs and launched collectibles for Pride Month, earlier this summer.

The New Creator Economy

In a huge move, Google has revisited its advertising policy to shine a spotlight on NFT gaming.

Starting on September 15th, Google will be allowing games where players can purchase in-game assets such as virtual apparel, weapons, and other items. This allows players to enrich their in-game journey. These aren’t just virtual gaming assets, they are dynamic chess pieces in the digital economy.

A platform as massive as Google is acknowledging the potential of NFTs operating in-game. This is throwing the gates of innovation wide open and inviting creative artists to continue building.

Google wants to keep the focus on creativity and innovation. With that in mind its retained the ban on games promoting gambling or betting with NFTs. But there is a real narrative shift here. Google is unlocking and harnessing the power of creators. For start-ups and digital artists, this is an opportunity. With tech giants like Google helping set the stage, the sky is the limit for what creators can accomplish.
