Ternoa is the perfect framework for companies building in Web3, looking for ease of use, and creating NFTs with utility. To support projects in their journey, we’ve partnered with The Blox to bring you the Ternoa x The Blox Accelerator program. All companies in the accelerator are working on cutting-edge NFT use cases and taking NFTs further than just JPEGs.
Throughout, we’re offering support in the form of mentorship, grants, and other perks. Go here for more info on the Ternoa x The Blox accelerator program.
This post introduces the first seven companies participating in the current boot camp of the accelerator program.
While NFTs are a great way to start monetizing digital art, simply attaching an image to an NFT does little to protect it from being hijacked by copycats. It’s common for brands or artists to find copies of their works or use of their original images in ways not intended. In 2021 alone, piracy has cost businesses over $1.3 trillion, and the worst part is that as much as 70% of it goes undetected.
Web3 is a nascent industry that requires IP protection systems that can keep up with its rapid development speed. Enter Lawyerd, the startup, is focused on enabling anyone to protect their precious intellectual property online, secure it on-chain, and detect any misuse. Lawyerd offers businesses a holistic suite of tools regardless of whether they operate in Web3 or not. With these tools, they can certify rights to their product, automatically receive reports of potential violations, and send out complaints whenever violations are detected. Any copyright can be supported, from trademarks to gaming assets to NFTs and more.
Lawyerd is already available in 29 countries and significantly cheaper than relying on existing systems to tackle violations of IP. Their tech scans the internet 24/7 for potential IP violations and copycats to empower artists, projects, and businesses — a perfect fit with Ternoa’s advanced NFT capabilities.
Companies already using Lawyerd include Rarible, Philips, and Cloudflare, among others.

The initial rise of NFTs was driven by speculation and people looking to flip their pfp collections for a profit. However, while it was great to drive the initial infrastructure and build out the rails, the future will see a shift toward more utility-driven NFTs and beyond speculation.
Renting a pfp might not make a lot of sense if all it provides are bragging rights on Twitter, but the more NFT projects start attaching utility to their NFTs, the more renting will become a requested future. Imagine being able to rent an NFT to gain access to a game or a physical location.
That’s the future Jaypigs is powering. With Jaypigs, activities that are usually just available for DeFi tokens become available to NFT holders, including Staking, Borrowing, and revenue-sharing mechanisms.
Jaypigs is leveraging the Ternoa and Axelar network to provide cross-chain support for NFTs and empower users to monetize their assets, access utility cheaply, and offer additional revenue to users.
For anyone looking to use their NFTs for more than just as profile pictures, check out how Jaypigs could enhance utility.
The private investment market is typically only open to high-net-worth individuals and institutions. Retail investors cannot access some of the most valuable opportunities in private equity and venture capital.
This limit ultimately disadvantages retail investors and restricts LPs from expanding their base and entrepreneurs in terms of fundraising. Aware of the challenges in existing markets, the team behind Kamea Labs decided to open up investment to all.
On Kamea Labs, anyone will be able to access investment opportunities. They leverage the power of self-custody and rely on a Web 2.5 approach to ensure full compliance with regulators while creating a more democratic investing landscape. With Kamea, investors gain access to transparent asset management and competitive deals while entrepreneurs benefit from new fundraising mechanisms and community expertise. Lastly, asset managers can use the platform to acquire new customers and manage assets securely and with increased liquidity.
