NFT Defi Crypto Collectors Morning Briefing 1/21/2022
1/21/2022 – Morning Edition
GM! If you are like me, you want a way to see whatever is new (I realize there is a fair amount of repeated information on this sheet for things that are coming up or ongoing) – so I’ve started marking new items with a ‘*’ on the left side. That way you can scan through the sheet even faster. As always there is a lot happening in the NFT space and if I’ve missed anything or you would like to see something else covered – reach out to me via DMs on Twitter (@vagobond) or in the Vagobond Discord at https://discord.gg/2nBRJJvyeR.
– BTC, ETH, Equities, and every other market dumping.
– How to safely use a verified NFT on Twitter
– How to Approach Influencers
*- Pulsechain – an ETH fork that will mirror everything – I will be exploring this
You can find my NFT buying methodology and more on the NFT 101 page on Vagobond.com
*The Graveyard (New Section)
This is a section that after today will live at the bottom of this newsletter. These are projects that I wanted to believe in that simply seem like they are dead. I sincerely hope that they resurrect – but when I put them here, it means that I’ve stopped believing and looking. I hope to someday have a section at the top called ‘Resurrections’ for when projects in the Graveyard manage to rise up again. As time goes on, I have no doubt this will be the biggest section of this newsletter and I will let it keep growing so that those who care to look can understand that the majority of projects fail and investors lose money. Pick wisely, my friends, and good luck!
– cMyKatz – I really like the dev on this and the community rallied around him but it just didn’t happen, a combination of bad timing on market sentiment and high gas fees. I have cMyKatz, cMyGravez, and ZombieKatz – they are all worthless now.
– Good Guys – One of the rare projects I drew a rare on. Dev got sick and it all just seems to have died.
– Invariant Labs/Monkey Bets – I hold two full sets here. I hope it recovers but with the Beanie mess, just doesn’t seem very likely.
– aiVatar – This project from Trey Ratcliffe was really cool. Totally unique. No one cared.
– CubeVerse – An MIT program turned avatar that seemed cool but then just sort of fizzled. I have several and derivatives – worthless
– Bear Market Bears and Doadz – I really really really want these to succeed. I love the art. Hamm is a cool guy that does cool stuff. It’s just that nothing happens with these and you can’t even give them away (but I won’t)
– Hobo Beards – One of my all time favorite projects and communities. The devs are still working, still making things, still trying to resurrect – but for the moment, it’s in the graveyard.
– The MTA/Metahelmet – I have no idea what happened here. Not a rug, but they just died on the vine.
– Template – I was so excited to buy this one, so excited for the amazing innovation and ideas behind the project but it just seems to have gone nowhere
– Madame Sofia’s Oracle of Wisdom – It seemed like such a good idea, but so quickly dropped to zero
