Global media powerhouse Condé Nast, which attracts more than 144 million readers and 435 million monthly visitors, is testing Ripple-backed Coil in an effort to monetize its web content.

A tech enthusiast, Eric Dadoun, called out Condé Nast’s tech publication Wired for enabling the online payments platform Coil. It allows users to stream real-time crypto micropayments to writers, artists and online content creators by using Ripple’s native cryptocurrency XRP, as well as other digital assets.

Ripple community members were quick to pick up on the development and discovered that most of the media company’s brands in the US have enabled Coil.

  • The New Yorker
  • Vanity Fair
  • Teen Vogue
  • GQ
  • Allure
  • Condé Nast Traveler
  • Architectural Digest
  • Bon Appétit

XRP Arcade, an independent media source, revealed that other US-based Condé Nast brands are also web monetized with Coil including Vogue, Epicurious, Glamour, Self, Pitchfork, GQ Style and Them.

Coil co-creator Niels confirms that the media giant is testing the platform on their websites.

“They are doing a limited test. So probably no access to ‘subscriber-only’ content yet.”

As a decentralized web content monetization platform, Coil is designed to offer online publishers more control over their work as it allows fans to reward content creators in both crypto and fiat currency.

The team at Coil recently announced a number of developments including a new WordPress plug-in and a partnership with money platform Uphold. Coil is one of Ripple’s key investments and has received a one-billion XRP grant and $4 million in a 2019 funding round.

How to get the Reins of Unity in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion

Avatar

Published

on

Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion added in several new items that players will come across during their travels, including several that will be used in the DLC’s main story. 

One such item is the Reins of Unity, which is one of the three key elements you will be using in your final confrontation with Calyrex and either Spectrier or Glastrier. 

You will naturally get the Reins of Unity through completing various parts of the story, but just in case you were a little confused, here is how you can obtain the final item needed to help Calyrex reunite with its steed. 

After you first battle Spectrier or Glastrier, depending on which field you chose to plant the carrot in, you will receive some of your respective horse’s hair. That, along with the Radiant Petal you will receive after talking with Calyrex again following the encounter are the two ingredients needed to weave a set of the Reins of Unity. 

After you receive the Radiant Petal, head back to the Mayor’s house and chat with him. He will offer to try and weave the reins for you, but in the end, Peony will arrive and complete the job. 

Here is the item description for the Reins of Unity. 

  • This item can be used to fuse Calyrex and Glastrier/Spectrier into the Calyrex Rider Forms. After that, it can then be used to separate Calyrex. You can only have one fused Calyrex at a time.

Once you have the item, exit the house and you will have a cutscene with Calyrex where he tells you to head up to the Crown Shrine. You can then leave Freezington and head to your final confrontation with your steed of choice, where Calyrex will use the Reins of Unity to fuse with Spectrier or Glastrier.

Heroic beat Astralis to complete lower bracket gauntlet, reach final at DreamHack Open Fall

The hard-fought victory against Astralis saw the Casper “⁠cadiaN⁠” Møller-led team pick up a fifth consecutive series win and complete an impressive run through the tournament’s entire lower bracket to set up a best-of-five title decider against Vitality, scheduled to kick off on Sunday at 18:00 .

With the loss, Astralis now close their chapter with Patrick “⁠es3tag⁠” Hansen with a third-place finish at the RMR event, with the 24-year-old set to move to the new Cloud9 squad after spending the last three months as part of the Danish side’s extended roster.

stavn shone on Nuke as he led the way to a comeback victory

The two Danish rivals, who had previously played a grueling series against one another in the group stage, provided a spectacle of a battle on Nuke. The opening map looked firmly in Astralis‘ hands at first, until Heroic stepped up to the plate to snatch it away with a massive comeback. Lukas “⁠gla1ve⁠” Rossander‘s team started off on the CT side and utterly dominated the opening stretch, but cadiaN & co. managed to break through the huge bank to claim five rounds in the opening half.

Down 5-13 after a second pistol round loss, Heroic dug their heels in when they got a hold of weaponry on the defense, with Martin “⁠stavn⁠” Lund leading the way to overtime as he kept racking up openings and multikills to stop Astralis‘ efforts to close the map in regulation. One set of overtime wasn’t enough, with Heroic unable to convert a second map point, but they managed to do so the second time around on the back of a perfect defense.

Astralis struck back on Inferno with a 16-8 win in a closer affair than the scoreline might make it seem. Heroic were more than competitive towards the beginning of their opponents’ pick, but a couple of throwaway rounds in man and economic advantages meant that Astralis gained control late in the first half as Terrorists and managed to stay on top in the second.

The series came down to Vertigo, where the two teams had previously played a quadruple-overtime affair in the group stage of the same event. This time, it was far from as intense as Heroic controlled the map thanks to a couple of dominant runs on each side, clinching the decider 16-11.

How to get Victini in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion

Avatar

Published

on

With all of the Legendary Pokémon that have made a return in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion, it isn’t a surprise to see so many varied ways of encountering them. 

From completing Dynamax Adventures, solving riddles, and simply being gifted a few, you are going to be very busy running around the icy landscape trying to catch them all. 

Some of the Mythical Pokémon are actually more difficult to find than the bigger-named Legendaries, with Victini essentially ghosting the entire Pokémon community since the DLC launched. Even the data miners still have not found out how to encounter the Fire/Psychic-type. 

According to internal data for The Crown Tundra, Victini is supposed to be a static encounter somewhere in the overworld. This means it will either be given to you by an NPC or you can find it somehow and battle it under certain conditions. 

Other static encounters in the new DLC include Regigigas, Cosmog, the Swords of Justice, and Poipole, if you discount the Pokémon like Calyrex that are included as part of the expansion’s main story. 

You can still obtain Victini through other means, including trading for one from a friend or transferring one over through Pokémon HOME if you do have access to one in an older game. 

Right now, rumors point to Victini being tied to the Galarian Star Tournament in some form, seeing as it is the Victory Pokémon, but nothing has been confirmed yet. 


This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
