WOM Protocol Gains Strategic Investment for Web3 Social Revolution

Blockchain-based marketing technology WOM Protocol, which replaces traditional ads with user-generated content, is thrilled to announce an undisclosed amount of investment from global liquidity provider and multi-stage web3 investment firm, DWF Labs. This strategic investment supports the scaling of the WOM Protocol through more integrations and kick starts a partnership to further the mission of empowering brands, creators, publishers, and social networks to monetize word-of-mouth recommendations.

Web3 social is defined by its decentralized nature, transparency, and emphasis on empowering users. While many web3 social projects focus on issues like digital identity and data ownership, the WOM Protocol distinguishes itself by targeting the primary revenue source for social media platforms: advertising. The global digital advertising market is expected to grow significantly, with estimates projecting it to reach $517.51 billion by 2023, up from $332.84 billion in 2020. Since advertising generates the majority of revenue for Web2 platforms, it represents a massive opportunity to explore in the context of web3 social.

The WOM Protocol is a marketing solution built on web3 that replaces ads with user-generated content (UGC). It enables advertisers to find, track and reward word-of-mouth recommendations, while rewarding creators based on their content engagement and quality ratings. The Protocol includes the WOM Authenticator app, which authenticates recommendations across all WOM integrated platforms, the WOM Campaign Manager, which enables advertisers to find, track and access word-of-mouth recommendations by spending WOM Tokens, a Shopify app, and the underlying payment protocol that automatically rewards creators, authenticators, publishers and platforms in WOM Tokens.

Advertisers benefit from the credibility and authenticity that creators provide, ensuring a transparent and equitable advertising ecosystem that aligns the interests of creators, brands, and platforms. The protocol’s “to-earn” tokenomics is based on existing user behavior, as recommendations are made 2.1 billion times daily. WOM is already live and tested, having processed over 27,886,895 transactions in 2022 alone, with over 110k aggregated WOM videos passing the peer review of content, so-called “authentication”. WOM has meanwhile scaled its own “TikTok of Crypto” app, BULLZ, to onboard more projects and brands through its Campaign Manager, as well as kick-start campaigns for user-generated content.

DWF Labs is the investment firm and liquidity provider for digital assets that supports web3 projects at various stages. Their services include consulting, smart contract auditing, treasury management, and more. With the strategic partnership and investment into WOM, DWF Labs will also be able to benefit their clients and partners by introducing the WOM Protocol as a new content marketing tool. As WOM expands its infrastructure across multiple platforms, it will continue to prove the adoption of word-of-mouth rewards as a replacement for traditional advertising.

According to Andrei Grachev, Managing Partner of DWF Labs: “We see tremendous potential in WOM Protocol’s innovative approach to word-of-mouth marketing. The Protocol’s ability to authenticate recommendations, incentivize creators, and reward authenticators and platforms has the potential to revolutionize the way brands and creators connect with their audiences. We are excited to be a part of this groundbreaking project and look forward to seeing the impact it will have on the industry.”

Melanie Mohr, Founder & CEO of WOM Protocol, also commented: “We are thrilled to have DWF Labs on board as an investor and liquidity provision partner. This investment underscores the strength of our technology and its potential for the future of marketing. With the support of DWF Labs, we will continue to develop and expand the WOM Protocol, bringing it to new audiences around the world.”

una Messenger: The Omnichain Communication Platform For a Truly Unbound Universal Blockchain Ecosystem

Crypto Chain Wire

Published

on

  • New, evolved iteration of “PAPYRUS” token-gated messenger creates and links vast communities connected through tokens within the blockchain ecosystem
  • Upcoming “una Swap” feature facilitates asset swaps across multiple chains in a single transaction; “mudskipper” function automatically acquires native coins required to complete each transaction
  • unagi Naming Service (uNS) replaces lengthy wallet addresses with a unique personalized identity

una Messenger, the new, evolved iteration of the “PAPYRUS Messenger” token-gated communication platform, was revealed on February 11 by leading global web3 developer Wemade as the comprehensive communication platform of the WEMIX Foundation “unagi” omnichain initiative. unagi (shorthand for “Unbound Networking & Accelerating Growth Initiative”), pioneers the mass adoption of blockchain by seamlessly integrating diverse blockchains and services. 

Unbound and transparent communication

Going beyond its origin as a platform for WEMIX-based communities, una Messenger creates and links vast communities connected through tokens within the blockchain ecosystem. una Messenger offers both official channels for each token that any holder can join and private channels that are accessible based on each holder’s digital assets where you can chat about tokens, NFTs, and other various topics. This innovative communication approach for exchanging opinions and assets is done by connecting all blockchain networks and digital assets supported by unagi through either una Wallet, WEMIX Wallet, PLAY Wallet, or Wepublic Wallet.

The first step as una Messenger begins with the integration of Wepublic Wallet and DAO. The Wepublic platform launched by Wemade, which utilises blockchain technology, is a platform that allows users to create and transparently operate their own decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs). With the inclusion of the Wepublic Wallet to the existing supported wallets, all DAOs active within Wepublic can now establish new communication channels using una Messenger. Moreover, SBT(Soul Bound Token) issued within DAOs will serve as Proof of Qualification for entering DAO channels in una Messenger, facilitating more active communication between DAO members in each channel.

una Messenger also promises to deliver much more vivid and meaningful communication via the upcoming live streaming chat feature. Live Streaming will not only help boost interaction and engagement between users, but also build and expand the shared communities connected through una Messenger. 

New omnichain interactive DeFi features

The upcoming “una Swap” feature facilitates asset swaps across multiple chains in a single transaction. Now, both ideas and assets can be easily exchanged across all chains within the networks supporting the unagi initiative including Arbitrum, Avalanche, BNB Chain, Ethereum, Optimism, Klaytn, Kroma, Polygon and WEMIX3.0. 

una Swap 2.0 will introduce the “mudskipper” function designed to streamline asset transfers across multiple chains while alleviating concerns about possessing network-specific native coins required for gas fees. Simply put, “mudskipper” will automatically process cross-chain swaps and transactions by acquiring the native coins required to complete each transaction.

Another una Messenger innovation, the unagi Naming Service (uNS) will revolutionise user experience by providing a convenient solution that allows users to replace lengthy wallet addresses with a unique personalised identity. This not only simplifies asset exchanges but also fosters a more engaging communication environment.

With the introduction of innovative features like una Swap and live streaming, and a novel approach to omnichain interactive DeFi, una Messenger has evolved into a unified communication platform that enables the creation of immersive and dynamic user experiences. una Messenger is the one and only communication platform for a truly unbound universal blockchain ecosystem.
