Project updates

Web3 social graph protocol Lens Protocol releases version 2, integrating “Open Actions” and ERC-6551.

During the EthCC conference in Paris, Lens Protocol, a Web3 social graph protocol, officially released its V2 version, which integrates the enhanced external smart contract feature called “Open Actions” and the ERC-6551 token standard. The Open Actions feature allows any external smart contract operation to be executed directly from Lens’ content posts. For example, with this feature, users can directly mint NFTs on the OpenSea contract from content posted on Lens. The ERC-6551 standard allows ownership of NFTs to be attached to other assets and interact with applications. For example, it is now possible to program virtual land in the metaverse to have its own Lens profile file and interact with its land users.

Mantle Network launches its mainnet alpha version at EthCC.

According to The Block, Ethereum Layer 2 solution Mantle Network officially launched its mainnet alpha version at the Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) in Paris.

Meitu expects to turn losses into profits in the first half of this year due to the devaluation of cryptocurrencies.

Meitu announced that it expects to turn losses into profits in the first half of this year, recording a net profit attributable to shareholders between CNY 220 million and CNY 265 million, compared to a net loss of approximately CNY 266 million in the same period last year. The main reason for the expected turnaround is that as of June 30, 2023, the market price of the purchased cryptocurrencies was higher than the market price on December 31, 2022, resulting in a reversal of the devaluation of the purchased cryptocurrencies of approximately CNY 185 million. Since purchasing cryptocurrencies in March and April 2021, the Meitu Group has not purchased or sold any cryptocurrencies based on a cryptocurrency investment plan.

zkSync: The eligibility for the LIBERTAS OMNIBUS NFT airdrop is to have interacted with at least one of the first 100+ zkSync NFTs.

zkSync tweeted that the eligibility criteria for the LIBERTAS OMNIBUS NFT airdrop is to have an address that has interacted with at least one of the first 100+ zkSync NFTs. Then, all 179,365 recipients were programmatically generated based strictly on the aforementioned eligibility criteria. The list was then sorted alphabetically in preparation for batch distribution. Due to the sorting, the addresses in the first batch all start with 0x0. As it is an automated selection, the 179,365 lists are random. However, zkSync acknowledges that using the term “random” to describe the initial distribution batches is inaccurate. They apologize for the confusion and thank the community members who pointed out the issue. zkSync will relaunch the issuance of LIBERTAS OMNIBUS NFT in the coming days and weeks and test IRL minting at EthCC Paris.

Previously, zkSync stated that the NFT airdrop was for the first 10,000 users on the mainnet, and the remaining users would be eligible to receive it after EthCC.

Ethscriptions Protocol Attacked, 202 Ethscriptions Stolen

Tom Lehman, the creator of Ethscriptions, stated that Ethscriptions_com was hacked, and approximately 123 individual addresses lost a total of around 202 Ethscriptions. The value of the losses is currently unclear. However, according to OpenSea data, some Ethscriptions were sold for as much as 5 ETH, equivalent to around $9,600, in the past month.

Lehman claimed responsibility for the attack and explained that the vulnerability can be traced back to a smart contract created by him and Michael Hirsch, the co-founder of Indelible Labs. A small piece of code included in it allowed people to withdraw Ethscriptions that did not belong to them from the market. Lehman also stated that the Ethscriptions_com marketplace will be relaunched, and he has been in contact with many users affected by the vulnerability.
