Celebrating 1 year of WEYU: A recap of key milestones

Celebrating our 1 year anniversary

WEYU is officially one year old! Thanks to an incredible team and dedicated community, we have managed to navigate the first 365 days, celebrating our anniversary on the 31st of August 2022. Filled with plenty of memorable moments, emotions, learnings and a fresh bout of energy for what lies ahead, year one has seen us get closer to our goal of becoming a user-friendly NFT platform designed for web3 adoption. With all that WEYU has built over the past 12 months, it feels as if we have been in business for over a decade. So, with so much happening over this period, let’s take a closer look at some of our stand-out moments from the past year.

The WEYU journey began with a vision to help alleviate the existing problems in the NFT and Web3 industry by building a multi-chain NFT platform designed to promote the adoption of the space through easy-to-use products.
