December 2022

Summary

Planning, Building, Prepping and Running the Holiday Season Mint
December was an exciting month as we had our Holiday Mint. The Mint originally had 3 parts but the 3rd part (lighting kit) was pushed to January due to team holiday arrangements.
​
​
​
​
  • Part 3 - NFT Lighting Kit - a non compulsory bling update for the Bubblejetts and Javelins - postponed until 2023 due to market conditions
Our NFT Marketplace got a HUGE update and is now able to accept $COPI as well as ADA for NFT mints.
A huge update to the COPIWiki was done to add more gameplay information about the Land Plots.
We also had lots of discussion on how much we should release the Origin Story and in what format text/image/video - the next few months will show the outcome of those talks.
At the start of December we achieved the 63m ₳ staked milestone in the COPI StakePool from over 4,900 delegates.

Ken Olling the CEO of Meld, joined Rob and Josh on COPICafe Episode 35 and gave more details on the partnership - Meld will have the COPI token as a launch token on their new DeFi platform and Cornucopias will create a new "vehicle wrap" for the Bubblejetts with the Meld livery.
