Head of HAUS  |  Issue #1  |  Sunday, 3 Oct 2021  |  Reading time:  2 mins  | Read online

We announced ART HAUS INSIDER a week ago, and wow, what a week it has been.

Let's take a look at we've been using, reading, listening to, working on, and writing about.

But first, some hauskeeping.

Make sure you're following us on Twitter and consider joining our Discord server.

🛠 Building

ART HAUS is an artist residency and NFT auction house. Simple.

We want to ensure artists are tokenising their works with the full benefit of creative sovereignty. Meaning artists should have their own smart contracts, mint to their own collections, and sell their art wherever and however they like.

As such, we've been working to bring ZORA protocol to the open source WordPress and WooCommerce ecosystems. According to W3Techs, about 40% of websites run on WordPress, us included.

In the coming days, we will be launching NFT auctions powered by ZORA protocol's auction house contracts, starting with an exciting artist from Australia, who we'll be announcing soon.

🧵 Scrolling

How open lost to closed in Web 2 — and how Web 3 can bring open back 🧵

public domain brands are going to change the game. with monopoly power gone, manufacturers will compete on quality and creativity of goods they produce, and tons of smaller players will enter the manufacturing space. for starters, projects like toadz will take over etsy 1/n
