DirtyRobot

Congratulations to the DirtyRobot Summer Seasons Collection #1 NFT auction winner - MaxEther.eth at 4.20ETH! Not only will Max take home the 1/128 limited edition time-evolving NFT, an Ether Cards Founder, signed & numbered print - he also gets a one on one with Daniel Isles, too! Wow, what a great deal!  Remember, Autumn is upon us. Check out DirtyRobot’s discord for some sweet teasers, too.

The Forge is now open!

Upon forging, the Distorted Reality NFT will be burned, and the Fighting Gravity NFT will lose the Forge Trait.

Ethereans

Things move fast in the Etherean Empire! This week, more details were released about the Etherean anatomy. Spoiler - they have four legs and they are kinda smart with those big brains. The prototype/concept was revealed for printable sculptures that will be released when the new website is live. Sculptures will have a full license for the token holders!

EtherHeads

Marketing

The marketing team is turning up the heat on Twitter as well as various traditional media channels. Thanks to targeted and sustained efforts, the community continues to grow and become ever-more vibrant and diverse.

Ether Cards continues to get great coverage across social media and through excellent  YouTube videos from NFT GG, CryptoRain, and Melos. We hope to see dozens more in the coming weeks and months!

With the ETHOnline 2021 Global Hackathon underway, Micky presented an amazing workshop: Diving into Ether Cards!

Finally, look for new Ether Cards explainer videos coming out this week!

Hidden just out of view in the shadows, I adjust my hood and accidentally reveal a somewhat disheveled, bewildered expression.  I’ve been following Gandalf - The Dust Wizard for what seems like an eternity, but in reality has probably only been months. He certainly is a mysterious character. Maybe even oddly quirky, too. Just when I think I’ve figured out what he is up to...shazam...he disappears! Only to be sighted later hanging out in the Wizard’s Tongue Tavern enjoying the latest refreshments or quietly hurrying down hidden corridors to attend secret meetings.

I suspect that he has all the answers to the questions that we’ve been asking since this journey began so long ago. Ok, not really that long ago, but it feels like this quest has grown into an epic adventure!

Now, watching him from a distance, I realize he has been leading me around this place. Or more accurately - directing me to look at the really important things that matter.  All the time he is wandering around town, mumbling to himself, looking at this or that and then moving on to the next thing - he’s really been showing us the way.  He’s been looking after the community and helping us to learn how to take care of each other. Gandalf has patiently watched us grow from a few fanatical supporters to a full-fledged and multifaceted community existing on the Ethereum Virtual Machine!

So, now that I see how much is involved in keeping this operation running and the vast contributions from our community - I wonder what he is up to next?  What is this D.A.V.E. that he is seeking? Why is he so interested in this mysterious sign?

Reaching the other end of this enormous cavern, two large doors loom over us. Just as he opens the door there is an enormous bang and blinding flash of light! Was that a sonic boom? I’m not sure. I’m knocked out cold and by the time I wake up - he’s gone!

Groggy, I hear an ethereal voice way off in the distance. I know I’ve heard that voice before, but where? It almost reminds me of the all-knowing and soothing Oracle character from The Matrix. Is my robe on fire? Something may be burning, but I’m not sure. Oh, some fresh baked cookies would be really nice right now. Mariana speaks softly. “0gz, is that you? Where is Gandalf? What happened here?”


Community

Our community is on fire, too! From the Ether Cards discord to Twitter and YouTube, everyone is pushing the envelope on engagement and involvement. Thank you all for sharing the awesome interviews with Andras!

During the last AMA, three lucky winners took home Founder Cards.  Congratulations to @HODL APE, @honeybadger, and @KyBuckeye03!

A great big thank you to @DrEthereum for the updated Ether Cards Dune Analytics dashboard!

The Ether Cards Fantasy Football League is in full swing thanks to @savethedanimals and his rowdy bunch of competitors. If you weren’t able to get in on the first season, you can still follow all the action and entertainment in the discord channel.

Finally, thank you to all the new and veteran community members that help all our new arrivals find the way in Discord. @chasemurder.eth, @badrobotgreen, @schoad, @woodneto, @john, @dazza9, @johnnybullNFT, @linehacker.eth, @cryptocochise.eth, @matt808, @kbetz, @PipsquEECS, @bachan, @moonfarm, and @empathacrobat - you are truly unsung heroes.
