July wrap up: all about “In The Right Hands” by Clapis, Marina Abramović’s “The Hero 25fps” and Billelis’ upcoming “The Graveyard” drop
GM to an unforgettable July wrapping up 🌞
Here are this week’s highlights in the web3 scene ✨
✨ All about Federico Clapis’ Nifty Gateway drop “In The Right Hands”
22 Mystery Boxes for those with Diamond hands – “In The Right Hands” is Federico Clapis’ latest Nifty Gateway drop dedicated exclusively to his most loyal collectors following the recent launch of the “Diamond Hands Ranking”: a ranking that rewards his visionary collectors who have a long-term approach towards the market.
For this drop, Clapis invested more than $50k on his secondary market to be able to repurchase and make these artworks available via Mystery Boxes that vary in scarcity to these long-term collectors at a discounted price.
To further reward those supporting this project, winners of these Mystery Boxes will also receive an airdrop during Clapis’ next drop consisting of 30 editions (date still to be revealed)
Thanks everyone for yesterday.
From the next drop the scoring system will definitely come into play; the higher the score, the greater the benefits.

✨ Marina Abramović’s “The Hero” drop
For me, performance is a holy ground. When I perform, I really step into a different state of consciousness. Today, I step into a new space for the first time. I feel your energy and look forward to seeing you all on the blockchain. #TheHero25FPS 🏳 https://t.co/uUDSE2DG81

On July 25th, Marina Abramović’s long-awaited “The Hero” drop took place – A drop, which symbolizes her very first debut within the web3 ecosystem, with the reinterpretation of one of her most intimate autobiographical works yet, “The Hero” (2001)
Filmed at 25 frames per second, never before seen footage of this artwork transformed into 6,500 unique frames as part of “The Hero 25fps”, created in collaboration with CIRCA Art (Cultural Institute of Radical Contemporary Art) on the Tezos blockchain.
Needless to say, it was a complete success! On Twitter, you can search the hashtag #TheHero25FPS to see you’re home fill up with all the collected frames.
✨“The Graveyard”: Billelis’ upcoming drop
The drop we’ve all been waiting for.
This week Billelis has announced an upcoming drop of his, “The Graveyard” and is keeping us hungry to know more details.
For now, all we know that “The Graveyard” will consist of 50 Artworks… only available through a sacrifice system.
The Graveyard is coming…

📚 Book of the Month
July’s book recommendation was “The Exponential Age: How Accelerating Technology is Transforming Business, Politics, and Society”.
Here is a mini-review:
Whether you are deep into the tech industry, passionate about it or not, this is a must-read with plenty of food for thought.
There is an increasing gap between the inherent nature of emerging technologies and our understanding of them: that’s where Azeem Azhar comes in, providing a clear analysis of what he defines as an “exponential gap” and how it’s already affecting economies, work, trade, geopolitical conflicts, culture, and society.
As the book comes to an end, the reader is left to reflect on what could potentially be the solutions to fill this “exponential gap” and hope that we can eventually catch up with technology shaping it in a way that on one hand better serves mankind, but most importantly, our planet.
If you had the chance to read it this month, what was your take on this read?
