Technical Infrastructure Upgrades
In recent months, we've been doing a bunch of technical infrastructure upgrades. Our team has been passionately engaged in writing, defining, and building the foundational lore of the scenes. This exploration of our universe has enabled us to create richer and more captivating experiences for our community.
We're delighted to announce that one of the significant technical improvements we have recently completed is that we upgraded to the Metaplex collection standard. This upgrade brings value to our platform by making our NFTs more interoperable with the rest of the ecosystem.
We'd want to hear your views as we embark on this journey. What are your thoughts on the Metaplex situation? How do you see this enhancement affecting your experience inside the Infinity Labs ecosystem? We value your feedback and encourage you to share your insights with us.
Moreover, XNFTs have been making waves in the Web3 Space. We'd also love to hear your thoughts on the recent buzz surrounding XNFTs. Here’s a recent tweet from Solana Monkey Business announcing that their SMB: Gen2 has now officially become xNFTs.
