Marking its grand entrance, Poolside Hub – the newest hot spot for Web3 startups in Alvalade – kicked off its public debut with a week-long extravaganza! Here's what went down:

  • Folks were searching high and low during our Art Treasure Hunt. NFTs were hidden throughout the Hub, with lucky winners snagging Poolside merch and an exclusive art piece by Denys Boldyriev. 
  • Punch had its first Lisbon session, complete with proof-of-attendance tokens for all. 
  • I had a great chat with Joao Correia Pereira from JUDAS and Miguel Magalhaes from MadreMedia about Web3 & Media, for the latest DenitesTV episode. Be sure to check it out here.

Partner Spotlight - Talent Protocol

Say hello to our Partner Spotlight, where we shine a light on remarkable projects collaborating with Crowdclass! This month, we’re showcasing Talent Protocol - a professional community for the Web3 space. Talent Protocol was on a quest for a more streamlined solution since they started facing issues with POAP and that's when they discovered Crowdclass.
Since then, Talent Protocol has been using NFTs for their Community Calls, Talent Houses, and various events. This has not only helped them to foster a stronger connection with their community but also got them to experiment with new use cases. The Crowdclass platform is intuitive and user-friendly, allowing their community managers to issue proof-of-attendance tokens effortlessly, making their lives a lot easier.

With Crowdclass, Talent Protocol found a solution that matches their needs. We're thrilled to be their partners and look forward to seeing how they continue to leverage Crowdclass to engage and empower their community.
