Optimism airdropped $40M To Artists and Creators. The fourth airdrop from the second-largest L2 distributed 10M OP tokens to 22,998 addresses.

Shl0ms created a hoax email that ignited worldwide panic about Gmail shutting down, which led to numerous articles, Elon considering launching a Gmail competitor, and a reassuring tweet from the official Gmail X account. Shl0ms proceeded to mint a free commemorative OE of the tweet which was minted 3,596 times, and a 1/1 of the original fake email image stored semipermanently on Google servers which sold for 9.6 ETH. We love the chaos.

In the world of Farcaster.... Farcaster added support for Solana addresses. Cross-chain identity mapping along with a permissionless social graph in a single API call!

Consumer Infra Wars

The consumer infrastructure wars are intensifying around key points of leverage like the social graph, wealth aggregation via wallets, and the port of entry into crypto. Farcaster is emerging as a dominant force in social graph integration, while wallet market remains fragmented with no strong network effects. Privy leads in providing crypto-native authentication and embedded wallets, posing a significant challenge to established players like Coinbase, whose dominance in crypto onboarding is being challenged by direct app entry.

AI x Crypto continues to heat up

AI x Crypto has become the hottest narrative as of late. WorldCoin and Render have surged in response to news surrounding OpenAI's Sora and Nvidia's earnings beat, with narratives driving their value. World App, the first wallet built for the Worldcoin project, passed 1M daily users. Funds like Galaxy Digital and VanEck are publishing reports on why this intersection stands to be so important. We continue to see a bunch of AI-related deals coming through Seed Club Ventures, and a bunch of cool emerging consumer AI applications are coming through our accelerator. Wild times.

Applications for SC07, our 7th consumer crypto accelerator cohort, closed last week, and we've been immersed in reviewing and interviewing teams this week, expecting to meet with over 50.
