Star Atlas Q4 Economic Report

Star Atlas’s Q4 economic report is here folks. Despite getting hit by a giant step back with FTX’s fallout, the latest report suggests that the game is still financially viable. For context, Star Atlas had their most “immediate liquid cash assets” on FTX. After the crypto exchange dramatically collapsed within a week, Star Atlas CEO informed the community that while the game still maintained a pretty strong balance sheet their operational runway was cut in half. According to the report, the community treasury of Star Atlas declined 54.8% in the last quarter. Major losses came from the tanking ATLAS and Ships prices. However, the game still observed a steady inflow of new players entering the ecosystem through ship sales. To mitigate some of the losses and raise additional funds, a recovery plan called The Golden Era Start Sequence was launched in December 2022. The game apparently managed to raise over $500000 through discounted Ship sales. 

The Absolute Files for Metaverse Trademarks

The trend continues folks, major brands are positioning themselves for metaverse adoption. The latest to join the fold is the Absolut Company. The Swedish vodka producer recently applied for trademarks for its Malibu brand, indicating plans to expand into virtual bars, NFTs, virtual alcoholic drinks, and more. These applications were submitted to the USPTO by The Absolut Company on December 27th, according to trademark attorney Mike Kondoudis. The products and services covered under the company's applications include virtual clothing, accessories, NFTs and digital assets, mobile NFT trading software, NFT trading marketplaces, stores for virtual goods and NFTs, and metaverse bars and restaurants that offer virtual food and drinks with actual home delivery.
