Motorverse in Dubai for Token 2049

The flagship property in digital vehicle culture has been on a world-wide tour since Animoca Brands introduced the Motorverse. This weekend they will be in Dubai at the Token 2049 conference, showcasing their AAA drifting sim, Torque Drift 2.

To kick things off they are holding an 𝕏 Megaspace, just moments from when this newsletter is being published. Tune in if you can. Otherwise, you can catch the recording at your leisure. Links in the post below.

The Motorverse will be following that up with an appearance on Rug Radio, live from Dubai at 12pm local time. Details are below. Check your time-zone conversion to make sure you don’t miss it.

OBS World Also Making an Appearance at Token 2049

Veloce Sim Teams Rack Up More Esports Wins

Where Esports meets Web3, Veloce dominates. Last week we highlighted a handful of incredible accomplishments from some of their team drivers.

This week they set the bar even higher! Here are a collection of tweets highlighting their most recent podiums.

Torque Squad Staking Rewards Arrive

If you are a PFP carrying member of the Torque Squad, like me you’ve probably been waiting on bated breath for the Season 0 staking awards to arrive. Well, the wait is over.

Now the question is, will you sweep the Torqie floor to stack even more $REVV during Season 1? 🤔 

Oracle Red Bull Racing - Velocity Series Pass 2.0

For three, going on four seasons in a row the Oracle Red Bull Racing has been an unstoppable force in F1. This is due in large part to their engineering and strategic genius, and their uncanny ability to turn catering budgets off the track to countless wins on the track (IYKYK).

So it’s no surprise that when they do web3, they go hard. Last week they launched the Velocity Series Pass 2.0, with all 900 NFTs selling out in just a couple hours.

The thing that makes this collection stand out is that it’s one of the first high-profile brands to adopt the DN-404 standard. In other words, the NFT collection is fractionalized and tradeable as a standard ERC20 fungible token, $SPEED.

(We will be tracking these tokens every week, as you can see in the expanded Asset Performance section above.)

What is the Velocity Series?

Bybit and Oracle Red Bull Racing are teaming up to bring fans the Velocity Series for Season 2 of the 2024 F1 race season. This series combines speed, technology, art, and innovation, all inspired by race team data and on-track telemetry from our RB20 F1 car. Through this collaboration, you can enjoy exclusive digital art from top artists, providing a unique Web3 experience. The series, curated with AOI, will have three releases throughout the 2024 season. Each release will offer a variety of NFT collections exclusively available to Velocity Pass 2.0 holders.

What is Velocity Pass 2.0?

Velocity Pass 2.0 holders get exclusive access and benefits including:

  • Access to three exclusive NFT artwork drops by world-class artists in 2024

  • Access to any & all surprises (whatever that means)

  • Entry into raffles for amazing prizes

Unfortunately, fractional ownership does not qualify for these benefits.

Motorin’ with Tom & His TVR

When our friend Tom, the project lead at Secret DR/VR Club, isn’t talking crypto on 𝕏 or in the $DRIVE Coin Club Discord server, he’s chronicling his life as a classic TVR race car driver on his YouTube channel.

Recently he documented the process of dropping a fresh motor in his 1971 TVR Vixen S2. This man literally lives the dream most DRVN readers share. To blend his passion for motorsport both online and IRL.
