Looks like there might be love back in the markets as Russia seems to take a step back from invading Ukraine. If all these leaders were just Degens, they wouldn’t have time for those kinds of shenanigans.
It’s NFT Games Tuesday here – so the focus today is on games. Of course just click any of the other icons to see the latest and as always, I’ve curated and provided the news that seems important in the NFT and crypto world right at the top. Hope you have a great day!
This morning’s cover (on Vagobond) is my new Website Banner Logo – What do you think?
* ALPHA * – The Vagobond Discord is one of the best free alpha servers around. You might see it in this briefing, but you’ll definitely see it in the Alpha channel of our discord first.

NFT Ethics Calls Cereal Club a Scam
1/ CerealClub that is minting today is a scam. Associated with Squiggles and having a mint price of 0.5 (via a Dutch auction going to 0.1), which worst case would net the project >$11 million USD. Team is completely anonymous and pic.twitter.com/AHW8mTkmwV

$POW currency is launched, planet DAOs are being formed, game is probably a couple of years off. They might end up launching a smasher earlier – but really hard to know.
It’s going to be an amazing game. There’s no doubt in my mind.

Cult Dao– https://app.cultdao.io/ | Manifesto
I bought some of this. I staked it. I’m not sure what will happen with it, but I like the ideology which is more like an anarchist cult than a religious cult.
SuperCreators – https://supercreators.io
– This one is weird because it reads like a new age religion but like most new age religions – it looks like a cash grab. I’d love to be wrong about this.
“This is the first Conscious NFT of this calibre. The Super Creators mission is to bring peace, harmony, success and abundance to you and everyone around you. By equipping and holding one of these tokens not only will you be one of the 2222 select few (out of the 3 Million+ Following we have right now) to carry a Super Creator, but you will also have access to all the super powers, training, knowledge and magic that these Super Creators possess. How? Take a look at the roadmap for a brief insight to your potential future.”
That word ‘abundance’. Yeah – fuck this one. This is the kind of cult I don’t want to be a part of.
I periodically move all of this to the NFT 101 page on Vagobond.com https://vagobond.com/nft-101/

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,
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!
