Lens Updates ๐ŸŒฟ

Orb Communities are thriving ๐Ÿš€

Right now, there are 25 ๐Ÿคฏ active communities on Orb, and guess what? They're sprouting up faster than mushrooms in a forest ๐Ÿ„

Some are open to everyone, while others are by invite-only or token-gated. This feature is a game-changer for web3 social apps.

Imagine having your own community within the Lens ecosystem โ€“ you can keep it private or open, and choose to post just for your community or for the whole wide world.

๐Ÿšจ Fresh out of the oven ๐Ÿšจ โ€“ you can now spin up custom badges for Orb community members with Coinvise ๐Ÿ‘€ Read here about this exciting new partnership with Coinvise!

This isn't just a boost for Lens; it's a win for the entire web3 social scene.

It opens doors for new job opportunities, accelerates project growth, and can even generate revenue if that's what the community is after ๐Ÿš€

Decentralised file-sharing workspace Fileverse Raises $1.5 Million ๐Ÿค‘

Yep, you heard it right! Fileverse just snagged a cool $1.5 million in pre-seed funding.

Money talks, especially when it's about decentralised file-sharing goodness! And, they are on Lens ๐ŸŒฟ

  • Say Hello to Fileverse Portal: Think of it as your secret lair for all things collaboration. This smart contract marvel lets you manage files, collaborate live, and even chat privately. Imagine it as your hidden vault, but for files on-chain!

  • Community Magic: They're not just about tech; Fileverse Portal creates a community vibe. With unique Portal Tokens, you're not just a user; you're part of something bigger, something cooler.

What's the Scoop? ๐Ÿค”

  • Meeting the Need: In a world thirsty for decentralised file-sharing solutions, Fileverse steps up to the plate.

    Traditional file-sharing apps often compromise privacy and security. Fileverse is the antidote, delivering a private, secure, and user-centric file-sharing experience.

Why It's a Game-Changer? ๐Ÿคฏ

  • Privacy-First Collaboration: Encrypt your files, control who sees them, and dance like nobody's watching. Your files, your business!

  • Beta Phase: Portals creation feature is still in beta and invite-only (or you can try to snag an invite from them), but you can already upload and share files.
