Connect, an event by Publicize, brings together startups to pitch their ventures to a panel of media judges and receive valuable feedback. Today, the bi-monthly connection platform joining stakeholders from different industries announced the winner for its latest competition Connect:Blockchain & Web3, NFT portfolio company Reveel.
A dynamic and insightful competition, yesterday’s event unearthed many conversations about the current and quickly evolving market of blockchain technology. The timeliness of this event was impeccable as in 2022 blockchain is being deployed to new heights—one example being records of unique digital objects known as nonfungible tokens (NFTs).
This, coincidentally enough, is exactly the realm that the winning startup exists in. Let’s take a closer look at NFTS, and what company Reveel is doing to help accelerate blockchain and Web3 in the NFT world.
NFTs exploded in 2022, conjuring a $41 billion market seemingly out of nowhere.
An NFT is essentially a digital “deed” and can represent any piece of work that can be digitized—from drawings, to music, to a domain name, to a tweet. A lot of the current excitement around NFTs stems from being able to use tech to sell digital art.
In a short amount of time since the genesis of NFTs, which was in 2014 with digital artist Kevin McCoy minting the first-known NFT ‘Quantum’ on the Namecoin blockchain, NFTs have progressed a long way. Billboard Music has even termed the latest crypto as a goldrush and Rolling Stone says they are a revolutionary concept.
Competition winner Reveel is a startup geared at building a financial operating system for Web3 Creators.
For those who don’t know, Web3 is just another form of cryptocurrency that runs on a “permissionless” blockchain. Web3 has been touted as the future of the internet, serving as a new iteration of the World Wide Web which revolves around concepts such as decentralization and token-based economics.
Reveel is a financial stack for web3 creators that automates paperwork for creators, making it most relevant for those looking to buy and sell NFTs. Its platform looks to empower artists online—which in this day and age most are in some way, shape, or form.
Reveel aims to use technology that educates and enables creators to manage the administrative side of content creation more professionally, giving them the opportunity to focus on what they love—creating.
Connect events bring together trailblazing startups and members of the media to stimulate exchanges on some of the most buzzworthy topics within breakthrough industries in 2022. The next event will be on May 31st, uniting movers and shakers in the sustainable technology space.

You may have heard of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his followers, commonly known as Rajneeshees or sannyasins, from the incredibly popular Netflix documentary “Wild, Wild Country.”
Well in today’s episode we speak with a former follower of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh cult to get a better understanding of how this society functioned, what it was like to live in normal society as a member of the cult, and what it was like on the famous Oregon ranch.
With our guest, Annie (who has asked to remain anonymous but showed her mala that she wore during her time as a Rajneshee to prove her affiliation with the cult), we find out how she first find out about Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and the Rajneeshees, and what inspired her to join their cult, where she goes into great detail about how she found them when she was 16 at an Alcoholics Anonymous event.
She also shares why life as a Rajneeshee was difficult off the ranch in normal society, as society often treated them with a mixture of suspicion, curiosity, and fear. In fact, she was fired from all of her jobs due to her membership in the cult, but she also explains how she saw this as a positive, “a trial by fire” as she claims.
Annie also goes into detail about what it was like visiting the ranch in 1983, when, she believes, much of the footage used in the documentary was filmed. She talks about the important role meditation played in being a Rajneeshee and what a normal day was like on the ranch.
She also shares her thoughts on how accurate the documentary was, how close she came to meeting Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, and finally, how she left the cult in the end.
Overall, Annie explains why she doesn’t see the following as a religion or cult, but instead as a community and how this community had such an overall, lasting positive experience in her life.
