The beauty brand, whose acquisition was recently confirmed by the Spanish group PUIG, has announced that it is working on a new concept aimed at extending its brand universe to the digital ecosystem.

In essence, the concept will be based on 26 digital ingredients. Should represent emotions, these are intended to be assembled in order to create new fragrances that will eventually be minted as non-fungible tokens and materialized into physical perfumes.

ConsenSys, launch of TURN
TURN is the industry’s first NFT representing services, such as Diligence’s smart contract auditing services. TURN allows customers to purchase an audit without waiting in a massive queue for 6-9 months. This is the first step in solving the audit bottleneck in our ecosystem. Each TURN is an ERC721 compliant token representing 40 hours of time during which an audit can be provided. TURN tokens, which will be assigned directly to customers or sold at the time of minting, can be exchanged on a secondary basis between customers requesting audit services, and therefore allow optimal identification of the price of service commitments and planning processes . Each of them represents a slice of time for a smart contract listener and allows free markets to evaluate it.
The blockchain is transparent and stores all transactions
One of the main attractions of a blockchain is that it is a public document. Anyone, anywhere can view every cryptocurrency transaction on the blockchain. Etherscan is the most popular BlockExplorer for the Ethereum blockchain. Meanwhile, many NFT collections artificially inflate their minimum price by purchasing their own NFTs. Snitch has developed a blockchain scanner, to showcase their technology which they have grouped for scans of 100 of Opensea’s largest collections. Example on the Metabillionaire collection, Clone X
A beta mode platform of a messenger that allows users to send messages easily and instantly from one wallet to another, powered by Log-in With Ethereu, it is multi-device. Blockscan Chat (built by Etherscan) runs on their servers and messages are not sent on any blockchain. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the recipient will see or reply to your message. To connect you need to identify yourself with one of its wallets, then it will ask you for the address of a wallet you want to trade with – this can be very practical before buying for example NFT!
