Launching: A $1,000 challenge; and a new The Great Reshuffle video
A newsletter edition that pays and educates you.
Infinite Loops has always had a tinkering mindset and we love experimenting with cool new ideas and let them surprise us.
Back in December 2021, we sold an NFT for 9 ETH (~ $35,000 USD back then) and donated the proceeds to “Ambulanta pentru Monumente”—an NGO that aims to save heritage-listed buildings in Romania with the help of volunteers, craftsmen, and local communities.
We also promised that the auction winner will be invited to our podcast and the winner, Dinesh, instead forwarded this reward by nominating another guest—an extraordinary person who was flying mostly under the radar: Dr. David Rhoiney.
Here’s a recap thread with the entire series of events:
We couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome and none of this would’ve been possible without that urge to tinker.
In the same spirit, we launched another challenge recently:
A chance to win $1,000 USD for writing the plot for a White Mirror episode. Honorable mentions will also get featured in this newsletter.
Rules of the game
Submission deadline: Fri, July 22, 2022 23:59:59
Write a detailed plot. A single tweet prompt will likely not fetch you a thousand dollars, but we might feature it on our newsletter :)
Write the plot as a Twitter thread and add it as a reply to the original challenge tweet linked above.
That’s about it. This challenge got birthed mostly in the spur of the moment so there aren’t a lot of rules and guidelines attached.
“White Mirror” and Infinite Loops is about positivity and optimism, so in case you’re worried about someone sTeaLIng YoUR idEA instead of being excited about creating, sharing, and possibly getting recognized for your work, remember:
So be the 0.01%, and send us your proof of work. All the best!
In case writing a script is not your cup of tea, worry not! We’re already thrilled with the reception this challenge has received and will be bringing more diverse challenges in the time to come. We’ll also formalize and bring transparency to the judgement process as we go. Stay subscribed to be in the loop ;)
The Great Reshuffle—Part 2

🏛 New forms of governance
💸 Mobility of capital
🤔 Belief systems
🎭 Meme wars
♾ And A LOT more!
Enjoy, and do send us your feedback!
