Hey friends. We're starting this month's newsletter on a somber note. The war that is unfolding in Ukraine is heartbreaking. Members of our team and our community have been directly affected by this crisis and like you, we watch in horror as history repeats itself. To the millions of Ukrainians both in the country and anxiously watching from around the world, we are with you 🇺🇦
Our immediate priority over the past few days has been the safety of our team. But these events have also forced us to think about how we operate now and in the future. Zerion is a globally distributed team founded by Russians and Ukrainians. We've managed to build something truly special over the past 5 years and it's times like these that remind us why we do what we do. This conflict has strengthened our belief that financial access built on decentralized infrastructure is a right, especially in times of crisis.
Please take care of yourself and others during this difficult time 💙
A new home for your NFTs. Ok, NFTs might seem silly when WW3 looms large. But prominent NFT folks PleasrDAO and Trippy Labs along with Pussy Riot are now raising $3M+ for UkraineDAO by auctioning a 1:1 NFT.
We know that NFTs are so much more than pretty jpegs. They represent proof of digital ownership, pushing the bounds of art, supporting meaningful causes, and belonging to a community. That's why they deserve a better home. We've been piling on new features to make your NFTs shine:
🎁 Sort by price, age, collection and recently added (new!)
📊 View floor price/last price
🤳 Push notifications for buying and selling (+ minting coming soon)
⌚️ NFT widgets for your Apple watch and home screen

- Zerion at ETH Denver. Four of Zerion's team members met up with friends and supporters at the largest ETH Denver ever. They hosted speeches and workshops, spreading exclusive merch and good vibes. Even COVID couldn't disrupt that web3 wave.
