Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 3, Sep 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
In our Web3 news this week we look at Chipotle, the Mexican fast-food chain which has launched a new dish exclusively on the Metaverse first. So, this interesting announcement is followed by their earlier successful launch of a Burrito Builder on Roblox which was very successful and now they have launched this dish, but this time they are launching it exclusively on the Metaverse first. So, people on Roblox can actually participate in this interactive cooking experience. They can chop the ingredients, put them together, they can do all the cooking there and once they finish it, they’ll get a code which they can redeem for the real dish in the stores. Very interesting way of using the Metaverse to launch a brand or a product. The other news we have is about the Ethereum merge. We talked about that in the last week news, and we have a couple of interesting articles that talks about what that means to the NFT holders, for example, and for the future of Ethereum and so on. Do take a look.
