- Formless.xyz created by Brandon Tory, announced they received a grant from the Polygon Ecosystem DAO to launch their decentralized distribution protocol and platform SHARE. SHARE is a protocol that enables creators to make orders of magnitude more money for their digital content by eliminating the dependence on centralized streaming machines (for example Apple,Spotify and YouTube). This is a massive step in the Music NFT space, as we know artists get less than a penny for what they are creating. We all appreciate what Brandon is bringing to Music NFTs and web 3 to help empower musicians. https://www.formless.xyz/share | https://twitter.com/formless_xyz |

Vagobond’s New Acquisitions
You can find my NFT buying methodology and more at https://vagobond.com/nft-101/
- I’m not buying anything at the moment while I attempt to mentally chart where the NFT market and world is going. My focus is currently on the projects I already own with an emphasis on Music, Travel, and Literary NFTs. That being said – I will probably be getting some free project drops from time to time or adding to my holdings of ecosystems I’m currently in.
- Pepapes #37 (free drop) https://opensea.io/assets/matic/0x14ec1c66f37acfb7466651ea15d21582ee6f9098/37

Great Projects I’m Not In or Following:
aka projects I missed and am salty about. There are too many – see the whole list at:
Missed in February: Generative Dungeons, Heroes, Mfers , Dented Feels
Tokens & Staking
These are the tokens and crypto/defi projects that NFTs have led me to. Bizarre when you think about it. See the full list at here
These are projects that I wanted to believe in that simply seem like they are dead. I bought into many of these instead of the winning projects above. Take that as a warning. 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!
