Omega's Solana NFT Assembling Tool Wins Infinity Creative Interactions Prize at the Solana Sandstorm Hackathon
The Solana Sandstorm Hackathon has ended, and it has been an incredible experience to be part of such an amazing event. Organized by Lamport DAO and Helius Labs, this virtual hackathon brought together some of the most talented developers, builders, and enthusiasts in the Solana ecosystem. It was powered by a ton of amazing teams who worked tirelessly to make it a success. We are honored to have co-sponsored the NFT Track in this event and witnessed the level of creativity and innovation that Solana is known for.
We're thoroughly impressed with the level of creativity and technical expertise demonstrated by all the participants. However, one particular project that stood out and captivated us - was the Solana NFT Assembling tool created by Omega.
This amazing tool allows users to assemble and disassemble NFTs with single traits they own. We love that it's open-sourced which makes it easy for anyone to use and play around. That being said, we selected it as the recipient of the Infinity Creative Interactions prize worth 1111 USDC. To find out more about it, click here (insert link).
We're proud to have co-sponsored the NFT Track in the Solana Sandstorm Hackathon and we're excited to see how these projects will shape the future of the Solana ecosystem and beyond.
Let's build the future together!
Web3 Worldbuilding and Lore: Twitter Space featuring Project Eluüne
We had the pleasure of hosting a Twitter Space event last January 31st with the talented team behind Project Eluüne. It was a lively and meaningful conversation where we talked about world-building and lore. Our friends from Project Eluüne shared some thoughts about how to create a rich and detailed world for a Web3 Project and how to incorporate lore and backstory into game mechanics.
During the Twitter Space, they gave us a walkthrough of their process for creating a world that is both immersive and engaging. They also shared some of their insights on how to tell a Web3 story and how to create a world that feels real and alive.
It's really cool and inspiring to hear their process for creating a rich and detailed world, including some great tips on how to develop the backstory and lore of the world. Lastly, the Project Eluüne team gave away some helpful advice for those just starting their own projects, highlighting the importance of creating a clear vision and staying committed to it.
The Twitter Space was a great success and as always, chatting with friends from Project Eluüne was a pleasure. We thank them for sharing their expertise with our community.

How to Build a World from Scratch: Twitter Space featuring Jose (ZeSKK) from Star Atlas
In our recent Twitter Space, we had the pleasure of hosting a fun conversation with Jose (ZeSKK), one of the OG lore masters of Infinity Labs back in the day and now a full-time lore writer at Star Atlas. The conversation centered around lore writing and worldbuilding where Jose shared his experience from the Star Atlas point of view.
During the Twitter Space, Jose talked about his approach to creating a cohesive and believable world from scratch. He started his journey and experience on how to build from scratch, providing some tips as a writer on how to avoid clichés and make stories original.
He also shared some of the cool stuff that Star Atlas is doing in the background, highlighting why he thinks lore and worldbuilding are so important to Web3 projects in particular.
At the end of the conversation, Jose gave some helpful advice to aspiring writers who are just starting their careers, stressing the importance of loving what you're doing and putting your heart into what you're building.
As a former lore master of Infinity Labs, Jose's insights were particularly valuable to the community, especially to aspiring lore writers.
Infinity Labs' Solverse Wiki: A Space for Lore Writers and Contributors to Share Stories with the World
Each scene from the Solverse Collection has a story, a background, and a purpose, just like you. Alongside our art, we built a comprehensive Solverse Wiki based on NFTs from the Scenes from the Solverse Collection where lore writers and contributors can share their stories and contribute to the Infinity universe.
Recently, we released a step-by-step guide that will easily guide our lore writers, especially the new ones, to help them out on adding their lore to the Solverse Wiki and get familiar with how to navigate the site's editing tools. This thread is designed to make it simple and straightforward for anyone to add their own unique contributions to the growing Solverse Wiki.
In addition, if you prefer not to add it manually to the Solverse Wiki on your own, feel free to reach out to us, send your lore, and we'll be happy to add it on your behalf.

In an extraordinary feat, with our partner, Dreambound Orbital, we have successfully launched the "Dreambound M1" mission to the International Space Station (ISS), carrying a payload of stories and digital artifacts from our Infinity holders, various Web3 Projects, and friends in the space. This marks a historic achievement as it is the first-ever full collection of NFTs sent to space.
During the M1 Launch at the Space Center in Houston, Texas, we had the chance to have an exclusive interview with some of our friends from Nanoracks, Michael Lewis, the Chief Innovation Officer, and Scott Rodriguez, the VP of Government Programs, sharing their thoughts about NFTs and blockchain in relation to space.
The "Dreambound M1" is indeed a mission to remember, as it marks the beginning of a new era in space exploration and NFT collection.
