One week away from the 11th Tezos Protocol upgrade

Welcome to this week’s issue of The Baking Sheet!
Protocol Kathmandu will be activated on September 23rd! This week was rather eventful as well in terms of news and developments. For this week’s issue, we’re going to highlight the recently launched Tezos “Spotlight”.
Tezos Content Hub
This week, a new content hub called “Spotlight” launched. Administered and maintained by the Blokhaus team, Spotlight contains a plethora of original ecosystem content and videos.
I think this fills a necessary void within the Tezos ecosystem. There’s tons of good content out there produced frequently but it isn’t really organized or obtainable in a single place. 
In the past, one would have to be actively monitoring the social handles of ecosystem organizations, paying attention to updates in various channels, etc. 
This can all get a little cumbersome, especially for new entrants or just those community members who are very busy and on the go. 
No longer is that a problem. 
Of all the content in the hub, they are organized through originals, technology, culture, community, and enterprise. Within those featured sections is some of our very own content - TezTalks, medium publications and this very newsletter!
The site and layout is super clean, so get out there and check out the new content hub!

Ballon D’Or Winners to Receive Tezos NFTs
For the 66th edition of the Ballon d'Or football awards, French group L'Équipe which organizes the awards will innovate by entering the world of web3. It announced the launch of NFT collections around this ceremony which rewards the best footballers of the year.
In addition, various advantages to the NFT owners such as the chance to attend the ceremony for 20 years or obtain exclusive Sorare Ballon d'Or cards.
Created by the cryptoartist Léo Caillard, a member of the NFT Factory, these digital objects are inspired by pyrite, the mineral forming the base of the trophy. For all of them, the group has chosen to use the Tezos blockchain.
