Hope you all have a great Easter 🥚

Welcome to this week’s issue of The Baking Sheet!
This week has been a bit quieter in terms of major news, but when you’ve had announcement after announcement, eventually things will settle down PR-wise. 
That said, in this week’s issue we’re going to highlight the upcoming #DNS420 event that’s slated to take place on, you guessed it… April 20th. 
Ecosystem Insights: DNS Beta
What is #DNS420?
In case you’re unaware of what DNS.xyz is, they are a group of people who have been actively working on Tezos to turn all your crypto wallets into a web3 profile. 
Similar to the extent Showtime offers users an ability to turn their crypto wallet into an Instagram of sorts with NFTs, one could think of DNS in this same regard. So far, thousands of NFT creators and collectors use the DNS platform and they routinely participate in our weekly Twitter spaces hosted every Wednesday. 
That said, they’re having a special event upcoming. Dubbed “#DNS420”, DNS will be having a launch party for a new and revamped version of their platform on April 20th, 2022. 
Some of the changes expected are as follows: 
  • AI generated profiles (for any wallet address, you will have your own web3 profile). For example going to https://dns.xyz/wondermundo.tez (or any Tezos wallet address) automatically generated a profile!
  • Customization (You can add links, custom images, change the layout, add emphasis where you like, and highlight the most important parts of your blockchain life)
  • Marketplace integration (one can buy directly and see any NFT on DNS from any wallet and the activity within)
  • Listings from other marketplaces (in progress, will show any NFT listed across various marketplaces)
  • Rewards/Achievements system (in progress, active users on DNS will be eligible for free rewards, ex. Pixelord superfan badge)
Oh and did we mention that there will be free prizes given away too? 
On April 20th, not only will DNS host a 4 hour and 20 minute long Twitter space at 4:20 UTC for their launch party - they’ll also be giving away lots of prizes to people who come in and participate. 
The giveaway will consist of the following prizes: 
Join DNS in their Discord to learn more, ask questions, or just hang out. Their development team is always available in the voice channel to chat with their users. Additional surprises for those who help out during the beta may or may not be included.
