UNIZEN WEEKLY PULSE #11
Edition 11: 11th February, 2022
Message from Sean Noga, CEO Unizen
Welcome to the 11th Edition of the Unizen Weekly Pulse. This week the community testing, security audits and development sprint stages of the Multi Chain bridge have been drawn to a close.
Whilst this final development stage has taken slightly longer than anticipated, our focus will always be on ensuring institutional grade security, fully battle tested and approved for release by both our own development team as well as the offensive security and compliance partners monitoring the launch.
Our priority is to always ensure Unizen products deliver best in class security and user experience and we are confident that our rigorous development pipeline enables a product that meets the most stringent standards of security we demand for our users.
As a team we are very pleased with the final product that will be available for public release shortly.
Stay tuned as details of the public release will follow shortly.
Dynamic Multi Asset Staking
The launch of the Unizen Multi Chain Bridge coincides with the full scale Dynamic Multi Asset Staking release including new DMAS reward pools which will go live on Polygon. This enables our entire community to access all the benefits of DMAS without incurring the high fees witnessed during the test stages on the Ethereum network.
Our goal with DMAS has always been to provide an inclusive ecosystem that caters for both large and small investors, and the launch of the bridge is a key enabler of delivering against this vision.
Stay tuned for details of forthcoming DMAS pools

Spotlight: The HUSL
The HUSL is a platform for creators. A global music marketplace that allows individuals around the world to upload their newest music as NFTs. A place where they can be seen and discovered.
Under existing approaches used within the Music Industry 88% of music revenue goes to non-artists. By the time the creator produces music, it can take months to years for them to get paid. Not to mention the bulk of the revenue goes to everyone else except the creator.
HUSL fixes this by giving the fan direct access to purchase music and other items directly from the artist.
When it comes to NFTs, HUSL rewards stakeholders with free NFTs from their site and in addition $HUSL token holders will be allowed to vote on new music drops, enter competitions, get invites to exclusive events, and so much more.
The wider application of NFT’s within the Music Industry offers tangible benefits to both content creators as well as the public who wish to find new and exciting artists;
- NFT’s offer alternative or new revenue streams, enabling artists to efficiently commercialise their work
- The transfer of intellectual property (IP) can be easier. NFTs can make it easier and more secure to transfer music IPs between buyers and users.
- They can be used for ticketing. Blockchain is incredibly secure and presents a viable alternative to the older ticketing methods.
- They can bring artists and fans closer together. NFTs provide a creative method for musicians and artists to offer their creations to fans, especially if they include added utility in some of these NFTs.
- They take the power back from record labels and middlemen. When you buy an NFT that’s been minted by an artist, that goes entirely into their pocket
- They can be solid investments. If the buyer carefully chooses the NFT, either as part of a wider collection or just on its own, then it can appreciate in value
Welcome to The HUSLVERSE
The HUSL is pioneering the application of NFT’s within the Music Industry and during Q1 will showcase their HUSLVERSE world brought to you by Vulcan Forged.
The goal is to become the premier destination for some of the biggest brands in music, sports, entertainment, and fashion.
Individuals will be able to purchase land and build on top of it to help create the HUSLVERSE ecosystem. In addition, the HUSL will provide access to virtual events, conferences, meet & greets, and exclusive experiences within our metaverse.
The HUSLVERSE will add P2E elements within its metaverse so users can be paid to play and enjoy the ecosystem. Each world inside the map will have different games that users can enjoy.
4 different lands. 4 different experiences.
A world full of imagination awaits.
And, Coming soon;
The HUSL’s global marketplace is designed to feature artists in the music world and give them a chance to showcase their work. From music photography to records to instrumentals, the HUSL’s marketplace is the place for users to upload their creative works and give the world a chance to view and buy them.
If any artist wishes to get extra attention for their NFT drop, the HUSL provides the ability to showcase their work in the featured artist section getting special attention and exposure.
Minting NFTs allows artists to submit their NFTs on their own without any coding required. If a creator knows how to connect a Web3 wallet to any site, they will be able to mint their very own NFT in a few simple steps.
We are extremely excited to have completed the audits and user testing of the Unizen Multi Chain Bridge, and look forward to welcoming our extended community to explore the bridge as it takes its place as a principal part of the Unizen Ecosystem.
These final stages have provided valuable insights which have enabled us to refine the bridge in readiness for full public release.
Stay tuned for further information of the specifics of the bridge and the new pools which will soon be launched on DMAS.
