Welcome to this week’s Arweave Weekly Digest.

Lots of stuff happening this week - IRL events, airdrops, milestones, and lots of new Arweave focused agencies appearing… and more.

Let’s get into it.

Weekly Digest

ao summit takes place in Charleston SC, USA 💻

ao summit is the first ever event focused on ao computer to take place.

Other than it being a general place for builders, creatives, and Arweave enthusiasts to talk shop - it also was the stage for new ao announcements.

One of these was Outcøme, a prediction market built on ao. With Outcøme, you can predict and bet on events and milestones in the Arweave and ao ecosystem.

(P.S. We designed Outcøme along with the founder, Michael!)

ar.io announce EXP airdrop 🎈

Since the launch of ao, we’ve seen a rise in tokenization, airdrops, and incentivized usage programs for users.

One of the more recent airdrops was ar.io’s $EXP token.

$EXP was airdropped to 20,000+ unique wallets, and acts as a proxy for future rewards once ar.io launches its mainnet.

You can check out the live EXP leaderboard, and don’t worry if you missed it - you can still get involved and earn $EXP with Zealy.

ao testnet hits 75M messages 🔥

Graph of ao messages over time. Text in top left reads "TOTAL MESSAGES 76.8M".

That’s 75 million transactions stored on Arweave, through ao.

These milestones are important because as adoption of ao continues to grow, it strengthens the foundations of Arweave.

More utilization of the global permanent hard drive is always a good thing.

The Longview Insider Update

This week we shipped and launched (in record time) a fun little app for ao summit, called Rainbow Rabbit.

Rainbow rabbit app mockup. Description on left "Rainbow Rabbit". Underneath "IRL social game built on ap computer". Ao summit logo on right with participants and interactions.

The aim was to make frens, and meet other builders by trying to catch as many different rabbits as possible. We gave away ~ $250 in $AR as a reward. It was fun, and we learned a lot!

We’ve also been helping design Outcøme, and making improvements to the Arweave Hub.
