Transformations in the creator's economic model. To understand how significant this upheaval is compared to traditional economic models, it's worth considering historical contexts. In previous decades, creators often depended on corporate structures and institutions that had control over the distribution of their works.

Art from ancient times has been a medium for artistic expression and communication. Artists strive to reach as wide an audience as possible to share their works and convey their message.

In this article, we will explore how social media impacts artists' reach to a broader audience, the benefits and challenges associated with this phenomenon, and introduce the usefulness that will be available on the Mateico platform - namely, the WALL.

Extraordinary occasions deserve exceptional tributes, and today we celebrate the birth of one of the greatest artists of Polish historical painting - Jan Matejko. Born on June 24, 1838, in Krakow, Matejko left an indelible mark on the world of art, becoming an icon of Polish cultural heritage. Jan Matejko is widely regarded as one of the most important painters in Polish history. His extraordinary artistic talent developed from a young age, and his works continue to be admired by crowds of visitors to museums and art galleries around the world. His creativity focused mainly on painting historical scenes, depicting key events and figures from Poland's past. At the age of nineteen, Matejko began his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, where he acquired the foundations of the painter's craft under the watchful eye of distinguished teachers. He later continued his studies in Munich, where he developed his artistic workshop and gained international recognition. His most famous work, "Bitwa pod Grunwaldem," painted between 1875 and 1878, is a true masterpiece of art. This monumental canvas of enormous dimensions epicly portrays one of the most significant conflicts in Polish history - the battle between the Polish-Lithuanian forces and the Teutonic Order.

The past year has been full of challenges, new experiences, and lessons that have made us stronger. The beginning of our journey was not kind to us. First, the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on economies around the world, then the war among our Ukrainian brothers and the uncertainty in the region caused by Russia. We all lived (and still live) in fear and apprehension, wondering how it will all end. Along the way, there was the situation with LUNA, followed by FTX. It was difficult to garner interest among the community and investment funds, which withdrew from the market and were not as eager to invest as they were before due to the aforementioned situations. As you probably know, the launchpad that took place in September was not successful, which complicated our plans for development and listing. Our work slowed down, and activity decreased as we weathered this challenging time and stayed in the game
