Announce Partnership With Stick Figure Productions to Distribute Four Down Executive Produced by Dwayne Johnson and More

Gala, one of the leading innovators in blockchain gaming and music, has announced the launch of Gala Film. This new vertical from the world-leading Web3 company continues the brand’s commitment to providing fans with unique opportunities to enrich their experiences coupled with amazing programming and exciting projects. With this announcement Gala Film also shared they will partner with Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award Winning Stick Figure Productions to present FOUR DOWN, a feature-length documentary directed by award-winning filmmaker Steven Cantor based on the New York Times best-seller NOT WITHOUT HOPE, written by Nick Schuyler and Jere Longman, and executive produced by Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia on behalf of Seven Bucks Productions, as well as Nick Schuyler.

Upcoming projects/partnerships

  • A partnership with Ai&Aiko, one of the most popular GIF lines in history was awarded GIPHY’S Number 1 Artist of the Year with over 48 billion views and holds 4 Guinness World Records. This will see Peter Draw’s simplistic and charming visual storytelling brought to life through the Gala Film platform
  • A partnership with Filmmaker and Actor, David Bianchi (“True Story’’ Netflix, “Resident Alien” Universal / Peacock) and founder of Exertion3 (a blockchain film production company) to produce Live Action Sci-Fi Series “RAZOR” for the Exclusive Blockchain Release
  • A partnership with Battle Island in the production of their animated series ‘Ghosts of Ruin’ (see more here)
  • ‘Making the Chronic’ – a series of 16 short films where Snoop Dogg narrates each of the tracks on his album released through Gala Music

The core benefit of Gala Film is its ability to offer a ‘Watch and Earn’ mechanic through the same blockchain technology that underpins Gala Music’s ‘Listen and Earn’ and Gala Games’ ‘Play and Earn’ ecosystem, offering fans ways to earn rewards through nodes and NFTs. With Gala Film, fans now have the power to actively participate in the content they consume, take control of their entertainment through digital ownership, and support new projects by voting on script choices or casting. Filmmakers and artists can also reclaim their creative license through a deeper connection with their audiences and the ability to distribute their content directly to the people that want to watch it.

By adding film alongside its successful music and games platforms, Gala is also able to offer an interoperable ecosystem where fans can benefit from crossover content.

Sarah Buxton, COO of Gala, said: “The launch of Gala Film marks the beginning of a new era in Web3 entertainment, led by Gala. Our ecosystem offers exceptional involvement and access to new launches, with fans able to enjoy unique experiences, empower creatives and get rewarded for doing so. We are committed to delivering fan-first entertainment, where technology is used to improve fan experiences without ever becoming a barrier to entry or enjoyment.”

Uniswap Striving for $100-$200M Funding at $1B Valuation

Uniswap Community Votes In Favor Of Uniswap Foundation
google news
  • Uniswap (v3) has 45.2% of the market share in terms of the trading volume.
  • The native token UNI of the platform has recently outperformed the market.

Each company has taken its own unique approach to reach its ultimate objective, which may include anything from introducing new goods to raising capital or expanding into new markets. This new step is part of Uniswap’s master aim to consolidate even more power. TechCrunch claims Uniswap Labs is in the “early stages” of organizing a fresh fundraising round.

The company is apparently in talks with a number of investors, including Polychain and one of Singapore’s sovereign funds, in an effort to raise an equity round of $100 million to $200 million at a valuation of roughly $1 billion.

Plans to Increase Dominance

TechCrunch quotes unidentified sources as saying that the round’s negotiations had not yet reached a final level. Thus, the agreement’s future provisions are subject to change.

Uniswap Labs, backed by Andreessen Horowitz, closed an $11 million Series A fundraising round in August 2020. USV, Paradigm, Version One, Variant, Parafi Capital, SV Angel, and A.Capital all contributed as well.

Furthermore, Uniswap is very dominant in the DEX market. According to CoinGecko’s statistics, Uniswap (v3) has 45.2% of the market share in terms of trading volume, followed by Curve (Ethereum), PancakeSwap (v2), and DODO.

Actually, 5.2%, 2.8%, and 2.6% of all trading volume on decentralized exchanges occurs on Uniswap on Polygon, Optimism, and Arbitrum, respectively.

In a few cases, the volume settled on Uniswap has been comparable to the data provided by the centralized exchange Coinbase. Actually, they were both in the lead at the same time earlier in the month. Moreover, the native token UNI of the platform has recently outperformed the market. This occurred at the same time when the TVL of the DeFi market fell below $100 billion.
