The NFT Universe Now Has Its First Goddess: IRIS




Iris Au, the CEO of Iris World, is launching her newest NFT collection: Goddess Iris. Created out of the need to brighten and emancipate the non-fungible token landscape, Iris World will show an earlier unexplored side of NFTs. The project foresees many upcoming top-tier celebrity collaborations, the Kardashian Kloset being the first out of many to come.

The Goddess Iris collection features a hot and “fierce” woman. This is the Goddess Iris, showing herself to the world and symbolizing confidence and boldness. She is a sign of continuous progress, the power of the feminine, and a welcome addition to the male-dominated blockchain world. Her growth and popularity are supported by other symbols of stardom.

A Different Goddess for Everyone

The Iris World collection will include 7,777 NFTs, each unique and with a special utility, including owning a part of the Iris World Metaverse real estate, a chance to win an exotic Lamborghini, Tesla, a Rolex watch, and 7 winners will receive $7,777 worth of Ethereum. The differences in the goddesses featured on each of the PFPs can range from different eye colors to even changes as noticeable as distinct noses and mouths. Iris will not only differ in body-related features, her outfit and background will also undergo a variety of changes.

With the support from an experienced and energetic team that includes members who worked on the Angry Apes NFT collection, which sold out in mere minutes, the Goddess Iris NFT will be available to buy on December 21st, 2021. This is a one-of-a-kind project, targeting the male-dominated crypto space with a powerful, feminine touch. Through collaborative efforts with people who achieved stardom and the visual appeal of the Goddess Iris, Iris World is sure to make an impact on the crypto sphere.


Iris World Meets Kardashian Kloset

The Iris World – Kardashian Kloset collaboration will illustrate the power that NFTs hold. Iris World will feature an exclusive 1 of 1 NFT Drop of a Hermès Birkin handbag from The Kardashian family’s world-renowned collection with its original, signed box. The winner of the auction will not only get the NFT artwork itself but also the physical item. This kind of fashion accessory can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention the value that a Kardashian autograph adds. The creator of Iris World is well aware of the power that celebrities hold.

Iris brings a fresh take on PFPs, collaborating with the most followed celebrities on the planet. Perched in her home in Beverly Hills, California, we were able to speak to Iris in an exclusive interview.

Speaking about the launch, Au commented:

“We want to bring NFTs mainstream, and we have the star power to do this. We want to include women. We want to empower girls while targeting all the men in the crypto space. We’re inclusive. The Kardashian family’s fashion style is internationally recognized and we are thrilled to be collaborating with the Kardashian Kloset.

Cici Bussey, CEO of Kardashian Kloset, also commented:


“We are excited to be collaborating with IRIS WORLD to offer this rare opportunity from the personal closet of The Kardashian girls’ world-renowned collection of Hermes handbags. This exquisite hand-crafted brown leather Birkin bag is presented in its original signed box.”

Iris World leverages the celebrity following of the Kardashians and, combined with the ideas of Iris World; this collaboration has all of the necessary characteristics that will create the future of NFTs in the mainstream world.


Legal Luminary Sarah Brennan Champions Pioneering Crypto Regulation Approaches




Sarah Brennan, an accomplished figure in corporate and securities law, serves as General Counsel at Delphi Ventures, focusing on investments in the Web3 space. With over 14 years of experience in securities law and a deep involvement in digital assets since 2017, Brennan also co-leads LeXpunK, a collective dedicated to establishing legal frameworks for decentralized digital communities.

In a candid interview with a prominent cryptocurrency news outlet, Brennan discussed various critical topics. She addressed the emergence of crypto super PACs, funded significantly by major firms like Ripple and Circle, to counter strict SEC regulations. Brennan viewed the SAB 121 bill, backed by the US administration, as potentially isolating the crypto community from broader financial integration.

While acknowledging the influence of centralized entities in advocating for crypto interests, Brennan cautioned against replicating traditional financial hierarchies within the crypto sphere, which contradicts its revolutionary ethos. She expressed concerns about monopolistic scenarios that could dominate the crypto landscape, exerting excessive control over essential industry components and traditional financial operations.

Regarding regulatory challenges, Brennan advocated for tailored regulations to manage systemic risks posed by large centralized crypto institutions. She criticized the current regulatory opacity and inconsistency, which she believes have fostered suboptimal business practices. Through LeXpunK, Brennan endeavors to pioneer experimental legal structures that could redefine regulatory compliance for token issuances, though reception from policymakers has been lukewarm.


Looking ahead, Brennan emphasizes the need for proactive regulatory approaches using antitrust measures to prevent crypto monopolies, promote decentralization, and target bad actors. However, she highlighted the persistent communication gap between crypto-literate legal advocates and hesitant regulators as a significant obstacle.

Brennan continues to drive forward her mission through new advocacy platforms aimed at shaping the future of cryptographic regulation, navigating complexities to ensure balanced and effective regulatory frameworks in the evolving crypto landscape.

Italy Ramps Up Crypto Oversight in Line with MiCA




Italy is preparing to strengthen its oversight of cryptocurrency markets to align with the European Union’s Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulatory framework. This initiative, initially enacted in 2022, aims to impose stricter monitoring of digital asset markets, particularly targeting insider trading and market manipulation. Under the new decree, fines ranging from 5,000 to 5 million euros ($5,400 to $5.4 million) will be imposed based on the severity of violations, reinforcing compliance and market integrity.

For blockchain firms and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, MiCA presents significant challenges. These entities must decide between fully decentralizing their networks or complying with MiCA’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. Fully decentralized networks are exempt from reporting requirements but risk non-compliance if they employ foundations or intermediaries moderating communities.

Centralized exchanges like Binance are adapting to MiCA by categorizing stablecoins as authorized or unauthorized, aligning with regulatory requirements without delisting these assets from spot markets. Uphold has similarly adjusted by delisting certain stablecoins for compliance purposes.

Despite regulatory pressures, experts are optimistic about stablecoins’ future. Figures like Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, predict stablecoins could represent 10% of the money supply within a decade. They anticipate widespread adoption driven by benefits such as financial inclusion, lower remittance costs, and seamless cross-border commerce via public blockchains.


This regulatory framework underscores the transformative potential of stablecoins and blockchain technology within the global financial system.
