Interlock Scoop: June 24, 2022 Edition
TGIF to you, Interlock community member! We’re in week 2 of Hot Project Summer. #hps🔥
Nick, our principal engineer, and I just returned from NFT NYC. Good to be back in the saddle and jammin’ away, (but it’s not like we ever stopped)!
Here’s this week’s rundown!
NFT NYC: Forged bonds and discovered new projects
Nick and I did the conference rounds at NFT NYC. The conference was unorganized and too crowded, but overall it was valuable. We had a productive and enjoyable dinner with the Aleph Zero team. And also got to meet Jonathan Pullinger from Outlier Ventures in real life!
We found two projects with real-world utility and that are also solving actual problems: Ethereum Push Notification System and Web3Auth (Not affiliated or partnered with either project, just thought they were really cool!).
Web3 Security AMA with Koii Network and KYC Alliance
We co-hosted a Web3 Security AMA with Eric from Koii Network and Chris aka “Know Your Crook”. Dan, our product manager, and I discussed Discord security and Bouncer, while Chris gave tips and tool recommendations for DYOR(‘do your own research’). Listen to the recording here. And make sure to give Eric and Chris a follow on twitter!
Discord Hacks Article
We wrote an in-depth article about how Discord hackers and scammers compromise servers. Protect yourself, your server, and your community by giving it a read here.
Minted Proof-of Concept Token
Our dev team minted a proof-of-concept token with an up and coming Layer 1. We’re very excited about their technology, roadmap, and community!
Launched Private Community
Finally, we created a private space on an enterprise-grade community platform for our most engaged supporters. This will include insider-access to all things Interlock. A handful of community members are testing the platform. Be on the lookout for your invite!
Upcoming Interlock Quests
- Bouncer Mascot: We have a creative studio working on a 3D mascot for Bouncer. A sneak peek of the prototype will be shared next week. And we might even do a Bouncer NFT for the community!
- Bouncer: Continuous tweaking of the Discord bot by our dev team. It’s on track for very good results in removing scams from your server!
- Scam stories: We’re going to start sharing scam stories from our community members that have been victims of fraud or hacks. Have a story and want to be featured? Contact me on Twitter, Discord, or Telegram.
That’s a wrap for this week, folks! Have an amazing weekend! Got suggestions for content or things you’d like to see from us? Drop me a line in Discord or Telegram.
