Adidas’ Triple Stripes Studio has introduced a digital artist residency program aimed at promoting emerging creators in the nonfungible token (NFT) space. The program, set to run from September 4 to September 11, seeks to collaborate with up-and-coming artists and create opportunities for them to connect with Adidas’ community of collectors.

Yuga Labs Announces Open Beta for Legends of the Mara
Yuga Labs, the creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, has disclosed plans to launch the open beta for Legends of the Mara (LoTM) within the Otherside metaverse later this month. LoTM will expand on Otherside’s storyline by introducing a new antagonist called “The Shattered” and providing additional background on the existing NFT Koda characters. Despite Otherside being a 3D virtual world, LoTM is described as a 2D strategy game centered around collectibles. Users will have the opportunity to utilize their virtual land plots to earn rewards and acquire new NFTs. The game will undergo further development in the upcoming months as it approaches a full release.
Next month we release the open beta for LoTM — and there’s much more to come. We’ve partnered with @farawaygg and are building a major expansion in Unity. But we want to get an early version in the community’s hands now so you can play and provide feedback while we keep building. https://t.co/g97MF6f3m8
