Arweave Ecosystem Weekly Report #31: The “Break the Internet” Edition
It looks like the world of crypto is back in full bull mode! Well, at least the prices. We all know that the devs don’t sleep. They are always on the move to produce more innovative use cases surrounding the web3 and blockchain world!
Without further ado, let’s dive in to our Arweave weekly report! Warning, it’s a really really long one!

OWF Demo Day Concludes
Demo Day has arrived! Yesterday, 31th March, was the day we had all been waiting for, the Open Web Foundry Demo Day concluded.
Over the course of the past weeks many new projects came to the Arweave Ecosystem. Yesterday the finalists showed off what they had been working on. Our journalist, Pierre, will soon be diving into all the new projects, so stay tuned!
we're super excited for this!! 🤩 https://t.co/PDre1CiTxL

Arweave’s founder, Sam Williams, puts things into perspective for everyone:
This isn't all web3 can do. We are not here _just_ to make more transparent companies.
Permaweb apps offer web services with the guarantees of protocols like Bitcoin and HTTP: immutable user rights, out of the control of any individual or group. https://t.co/QtTWZQbSIw

Weekly Arweave transactions break all-time high by 35%
It looked like we were in for a nice week pricewise, as we steadily kept going up and then had small drops. After a vote today from the EU to have stricter regulations on noncustodial wallets, the whole market has taken a little dip again, including $AR.
We also reach our ATH in TX volume hitting 5,031,466 transactions on Saturday.

everFinance auction goes live and breaks the internet
The latest everFinance auction went live yesterday, and soon after, the auction crashed. This is not a bad thing, this is a good thing, as it shows a massive increase in adoption.
everFinance has assured everyone that any (temporarily) missing funds – that were locked due to the bidding mechanism – from their wallets will be returned.
The auction will now take place today, the 1st of April. No, this is not an April fools joke!
🐘Statement from todays auction! Thanks so much for the support, the participation was crazy!
We'll give you an exact time for when the auction will resume. pic.twitter.com/a0B9Djq319
