VANCAT (VANCAT) NFT Marketplace Has Been Listed on BitMart Exchange
[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]
BitMart, a premier global digital asset trading platform, has listed VANCAT (VANCAT) on May 4, 2021. For all BitMart users, the VANCAT/USDT trading pair is now available for trading.
VANCAT is an innovative platform that allows users to easily deposit BEP20 tokens into NFTs. The VANCAT token is the governance token of the platform. On VANCAT, an NFT can be transformed into a basket holding a number of other tokens.
The platform releases the first decentralized application (DApp) on top of the VanCatToken Protocol, focusing on art and collectible NFTs. The app works as a marketplace that allows users to mint or create their own NFTs or purchase NFTs created by other users.
VANCAT also creates a new way of minting NFTs: “VANCAT Fertilization”. To perform fertilization, a user must have both VANCAT Sperm Token (VCSPERM) and VANCAT Egg Token (VCEGG). For every fertilization, 10 million VCSPERM and 1 VCEGG are burnt to create two transaction hashes. With these two hashes, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) technology will be used to generate a code (DNA) for creating unique NFTs.

FOX Partners with Rick and Morty Co-Creator to Launch NFT Marketplace
Fox Broadcasting Company partnered up with Dan Harmon – co-creator of Rick and Morty – to develop animated series based on blockchain technology. The comedy series, dubbed ‘Krapopolis,’ will introduce the sale of non-fungible tokens illustrating the characters and artwork featured in the show.
Fox Enters The Crypto Community
The American commercial broadcast TV network Fox announced its partnership with ‘Rick and Morty’ co-creator Dan Harmon. The collaboration will aim to develop ”the very first animated series organized entirely on the blockchain.”
The popular comedy series, called ‘Krapopolis,’ will launch NFTs depicting Rick, Morty, and the other main characters of the animation. The show also plans to reward its most devoted fans with tokens that grant ”exclusive social experiences.” However, details are scarce about when exactly the project is set to start.
Furthermore, Fox revealed it will launch the new NFT company ”Blockchain Creative labs”, which is expected to connect with ”Krapopolis” and other shows in the near future.
Charlie Collier – Fox Entertainment CEO – outlined the company’s inovation and revealed his intention to add advertising partners to it:
”Not to go too far today, but as an adviser-centric, artist-first, and animation-obsessed company, Fox will lead advertisers into the world of blockchain-powered tokens, including the NFTs.”
The Rise of NFTs
The mass craze around non-fungible tokens has been a hot topic lately. Many celebrities and famous sportsmen such as Tyson Fury, Floyd Mayweather, and Eminem launched their own NFT collections. Moreover, the seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady revealed his intentions to launch his own NFT platform, called Autograph.
One of the most iconic sci-fi movies, Star Wars, also joined the NFT bandwagon. As CryptoPotato reported at the beginning of May, the fans of the franchise will have the chance to interact with more than 800 collectibles built as NFTs called StarColls.
The project aimed to commemorate the legendary series and outlined a ”new era for Star Wars memorabilia collecting when two forces like Star Wars collectibles and blockchain technology merge.”
Somewhat expectedly, the early registration for the Star Wars NFTs started on May the 4th. The fans of George Lucas’ iconic invention know the significance of this date, as it became the ”informal commemorative day” celebrating the saga.

SingularityNET Partners With Ocean Protocol Prior to the AI-Based DeFi Fund Launch
[Press Release – Amsterdam, Netherlands, 18th May 2021]
The collaboration will see the OCEAN token’s inclusion in SingularityDAO’s index fund/investment portfolio. Moreover, SingularityDAO is designed to leverage AI at multiple levels: AI manages dynamic token-sets, executes predictive market-making strategies to provide liquidity for these token-sets on DEXs, and predictively models hedging strategies.
All this AI requires a lot of data to learn and improve, which is why SingularityDAO is a natural user of Ocean data sets – data sets published via Ocean Market (and other Ocean-based markets) into the Ocean ecosystem. The Ocean ecosystem is host to many diverse and varied trading and DeFi data sets. These make excellent candidates for consumption by SingularityDAO’s AI agents to enhance its financial modeling.
I’m really excited by the opportunity to work together with Ocean Protocol, one of the most respectable projects in crypto that has been constantly delivering community-driven, decentralized data solutions. SingularityDAO will constantly make use of data to train our ML and I can’t think of a better partner than Ocean Protocol. – Marcello Mari, CEO at SingularityDAO
The news follows the successful completion of a total of $5.2 million raised in three different rounds for the highly anticipated Governance Generation Event on MANTRADAO, which reached its hard cap within less than 2½ hours.
The protocol, described as ‘DeFi meets decentralized AI,’ held the event exclusively for SingularityNET $AGI holders and attracted 5,800 registrations in one week. The token sale raised $1.6 million (8,000,000 SDAO).
The successful Governance Generation Event follows a recent private sale wherein SingularityDAO raised $2.7 million of funding from a number of top-tier investors such as AlphaBit, Marshland Capita, GBV, and SMO Capital. SingulariyDAO’s governance token has been generated on May 13th and distributed on the same day. It is currently trading on Uniswap.
SingularityDAO is a decentralized platform, governed by the SDAO token, tasked with governing DynaSets. DynaSets are diversified baskets of cryptocurrency assets dynamically managed by AI and curated by the protocol. SingularityDAO brings the financial sophistication of AI-managed funds to DeFi, deploying SingularityNET’s AI technology to navigate complex markets.
