Arweave Ecosystem Weekly Report #29: The Arweave Name Service edition
Members of the Arweave community were rewarded with name service domains which were launched during the week. From Ukraine war content, preservation on the permaweb exceeded 24 million, and Arweave has shown how it can be used as a force for good by helping to preserve the history of the most persecuted ethnic minority in the world.
Here are the top developments in the ecosystem:

ANS domains airdropped to the Arweave community
Arweave name service domains were airdropped to 513 community members by Web3 social protocol decent.land. Users of Verto ID and alpha testers of the original decent.land protocol are among those eligible for airdrop.
The team is working to ensure ANS domains are displayed on Verto Exchange and ViewBlock instead of wallet addresses. Incentive mechanisms for people to earn passive income for holding ANS domain will be available in the mainnet, the team said.
Excited to announce that our Arweave Name Service protocol is live after this initial airdrop. DL alpha and Verto ID users all now have an ANS domain. What's next 🧵 https://t.co/aSBSfUQ5de

Over 24 million Russia-Ukraine pieces of war content archived on Arweave
As the war rages in Ukraine with devastating impact, more documents are preserved. There are over 24million pieces of content including text, video and pictures stored permanently.
The world needs an immutable storage system to survive numerous generations & Arweave has that potential.

Rohingya Archive on Arweave gives scorecard
After a year of testing its structure, the Rohingya archive or R-archive has emerged from its pilot stage and is set to scale in coming months. Rohingya in Myanmar are victims of ethnic cleansing, genocide and regarded as the most persecuted minority ethnic group in the world by the United Nations. Many have fled in the aftermath of years of violent crackdown. The R-archive aims to collect and preserve in digital formats documents, pictures and videos that prove that Rohingya have lived in Myanmar for centuries.
Our pilot of the Rohingya Archive on @ArweaveTeam is successfully accomplished. Now we are looking to #scale the project to support the important mission of preserving the #rohingya legacy.https://t.co/fOsJBRBY3I#Arweave #AR @onlyarweave @ArweaveArchives @ArweaveNews
