Let’s start with Modhaus!

On April 1st, ARTMS opened an official website and various social media channels, including Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. This move not only helps the group to connect with fans on a more personal level, but it also provides a platform for fans to stay updated on the group’s latest activities.

Additionally, ARTMS exclusive content ‘Explore Log’ was released.
tripleS released Double Class Objekts containing images of characters drawn by the members as a special event for April Fool’s Day. This event was well-received by fans and showcased the group’s creativity in a fun way.
The first Event Gravity for Binary01, where fans decided on tripleS’ fandom name, was held from April 8th to April 10th. Fans suggested fandom names through Discord, and a total of 7 finalists were chosen by tripleS and Modhaus. A total of 101,909 COMO were used, and WAV had the most votes (43,962 COMO) during the Gravity period, making it the official fandom name of tripleS.

Finally, the second Grand Gravity is currently ongoing. Through the Gravity, two Dimensions that maximize tripleS’ skill set will be formed. The two teams are LOVElution and EVOLution. Each team will be composed of 8 members, and the team for 14 members will be decided through the Grand Gravity. Unrevealed members will join each team as hidden cards, S15 will join EVOLution, and S16 will join LOVElution.
Modhaus continues to demonstrate its commitment to innovation and transparency in the K-pop industry. These updates from ARTMS and tripleS showcase Modhaus’s unique approach to entertainment and its dedication to providing fans with a truly immersive experience. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for these exciting projects.
Derby Stars Update
Derby Stars is a Web3 Metaverse horse racing game that offers an immersive experience with beautiful graphics. Players can train horses, breed new horses, and compete in Player versus Environment (PvE) and Player versus Player (PvP) competition. Here’s a recap of Derby Stars’ monthly update for April.
Derby Stars is constantly updating the game based on metrics and feedback from Early Access. For details on the Early Access, please read Derby Stars Early Access Recap.
Two major demands from users include a mobile version and rental system. In response, Derby Stars has been developing a mobile build, which is progressing smoothly and set to release in Q3 of 2023. Additionally, they are working on a rental system to enable everyone to play the game, not just NFT holders.
Derby Stars is also building new features, including an Encyclopedia game guide system, general conversation improvement, training system upgrade with an enhanced rewarding system, seasonal PVP with a new ranking system, a web shop, a horse rental system, easy sign-up/in and connect wallets, and other systems. Several new features are currently being discussed, and more details will be revealed later.
The art team has been hard at work on the UI, animations, and effects renewal. They’ve added new icons, a new track named “Gloria” for both day and night racing, and renewed animations, such as the Foal’s special skill effect.
Derby Stars has also released two videos. The first video is an Early Access Recap, which highlights and provides insights into the game. The second video showcases a new map for the game.
Derby Stars is pushing the boundaries of decentralized technology and creating new opportunities in the Metaverse. We’re excited to see what’s next for this innovative project.
Since the DAVA team prioritized building a composableNFT system, it has continued to focus on B2B solutions.
The team has already shared with the community on several occasions that NFTs which are not static, but instead constantly change form or state, will be more suitable for the mass adoption of NFTs. Research is already underway in the Ethereum ecosystem under the name of dynamic NFTs, and other chains are continuing to work on NFTs with changing state values, which means their attributes can change over time.
From a development perspective, the DAVA team has created an NFT minting tool, a voting system, an avatar creation tool, and is currently finalizing the development of an NFT drop tool. The primary development is expected to be completed by mid-May, and the team plans to upgrade it through various tests.
In terms of business, the team has confirmed pilot tests with two partners, which will utilize all or part of the aforementioned composableNFT system in their services and will be conducted before full-scale introduction to their products. While specific project names for these pilots cannot be revealed, the DAVA team will be running two pilots, one in late May and one in early June. Through these pilot tests, the team will validate its skills and thesis.
