⚓️ 'box 2' by blur
not to be outdone by some fancy NYC restaurant, I too have decided to ban James Corden from reading BivNFT.
so James, if you are reading this STOP THIS INSTANT. YOU ARE BANNED (feel free to buy my bags though).
how to claim your $BLUR airdrop
wake up, babe. a new marketplace just dropped.
the new kid on the block is Blur, a Paradigm-funded marketplace that doubles as an aggregator.
in order to attract people, they’ve taken a page out of the LooksRare playbook and issued an “airdrop” of their token $BLUR that will be redeemable *checks notes* 3 months from now.
I speak for myself that even despite this delay, I welcome any and all companies who give me an airdrop at this point. long live Blur.
plus…Blur looks a lot better than most marketplaces already (and a lot of those worse-looking marketplaces aren’t even in ‘beta’).
I particularly like all the data in Blur, like the 1-day and 7-day price floor metrics.
in order to claim your airdrop, you’ll have to list an NFT so at the very least you can spend a few seconds poking around the interface to see for yourself. and enjoy your common boxes.
.coin TLD discontinued by Unstoppable Domains
Unstoppable Domains is the little brother of ENS domains (and a centralized version at that). always has been, and appears always will be.
that’s because they announced on Tuesday that they’ll be discontinuing their .coin TLD (top-level domain). it conflicted with another TLD created *before* theirs in 2021.
it is only just now that they’re realizing the conflict too. as they point out, it’s obviously problematic that you could send crypto to dad.coin (for example) and it could go to a completely different address than you intended.
so for that reason, they had no choice but to discontinue *their* .coin TLD and issue 3x the credit to users who had bought a .coin domain.
it could have been a lot worse. but this reinforces that you should always double-check your wallet addresses…and always use ENS.
Bicycle buys a Bored Ape
in what is officially becoming a trend, old brands are deciding to get “hip” and are buying Bored Apes.
first, it was M&Ms…now, it’s Bicycle Playing Cards.
yes, in another random collaboration, there will be Bored Ape Playing Cards with this Ape (and only this Ape apparently) featured in the deck.
Dave Van Patten & Cloudmachine
the story I posted about Cloudmachine from a few weeks ago is only getting crazier. there was yet *another* crazy coincidence between the project and me brought to my attention yesterday. I’ll have to write more about it later 👀
