Elon continues to mess with Twitter (to make it profitable, I guess?) and today, he’s somehow managed to make it affect my newsletter.
apparently, Substack integration of tweets is disabled, so I’ll have to use *screenshots* of tweets, instead of having them actually embedded in the newsletter.
this is going so well.
we have all been asking about $MASK, and *perhaps* we are a little bit closer to a big Web3 company giving us an airdrop than we previously thought.
on Tuesday, OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace, revealed that Gem has been rebranded to OpenSea Pro. if you recall, Gem was a marketplace aggregator and “floor sweeping” tool that was acquired by OS in April of last year.
in celebration of the launch, Gem users got hooked up with an exclusive NFT called the Gemesis token. it’s currently sitting at a 0.035 price floor and has a supply of 80K as I write this.
an area in the OpenSea Pro dashboard has led people to speculate that OpenSea possibly is prepping a token of their own soon. in a move that sounds *a lot* like what their big competitor Blur did, they are saying that activity is being tracked on the platform.
while that would be awesome if there was some kind of $OS token, I can’t help but feel that a drop would be too much of a headache for a company like OpenSea…which never really has hidden the fact that they’re operating much more like a Web2 startup than a Web3 company.
though it doesn’t hurt to be a wishful thinker…I’d say don’t get your hopes up that using OpenSea Pro will lead to any kind of coins.
cash grabs are back bb
gone are the days of celebrity cash grabs…or are they?
what’s that in the sky? it’s a bird! no, it’s a plane. no it’s…
SUPERMAN that hooooo!
yes, Soulja Boy has come to save celebrities’ pockets once again…by launching his own 3D NFT on Wednesday.
it’s called Soulja Boy 3D NFT (how creative).
to his credit, they are limited to only 500 so it’s not too egregious. what is though is that Soulja claims that he’s the first celebrity to have a 3D NFT of himself (Kevin Hart would like a word).
I can’t tell if this means that celebrities are finding a way to make money in Web3 again…with a gaming slant this time…or if Soulja Boy is just wild.
either way, you know BivNFT newsletter will be keeping a close eye on celebrity projects as we’ve always done. they tend to indicate a strong resale market and potentially new people entering the space.
what can I say, I have positively no life.
Koda decoupling and Vessel claims are live
while the market wanes, Yuga keeps fighting the good fight. they’re moving forward with the next phase of their lore building, the Legends of Mara.
this involves Koda decoupling (meaning your Koda pet can be a standalone NFT) and Vessel claiming (which means you can get your Yuga pet rock).
the orange pet rocks (aka the Hunter Vessels) sit on the floor right now as the most common pet rock, and you can grab one on secondary for 0.37 ETH as I writ ethis.
for a Yuga asset, you could do a lot worse than that. a sub 1 ETH token from them usually ages pretty well…just look at the Sewer Passes.
speaking of sub 1 ETH buys, I don’t think I told y’all…I’m a Checks holder finally!
if launching a derivative project was any indication, I’m a big fan of them now.
though I didn’t get one in time to attend their NFT LA event, it made a lot of sense to me to buy now…as when you look at their floor price (0.39 ETH for an Original and .69 ETH for an Edition), they *appear* undervalued.
that’s because Opepen Editions are 0.43 ETH…and they are essentially the check collector’s PFP. to own an Original Checks (with a supply of 6K right now and a max of 14K total) for less than that seems crazy to me, but then again, truly what do I know? I’m really bad at this stuff.
but as it stands, it’s my first halfway decent “trade” in a while and I have to start proving to everyone (but most especially myself) that I’m capable of good trades again.
I don’t plan on selling my Check anytime soon, but if I did it’d be for a profit. what are profits again?
let me know what you think of buying Checks this late in the game and see you Tuesday.
I OWN FINANCIALSOVEREIGNTY.ETH the domain is the reason behind the place and great marketing for a hedge fund or defi project to have that if you can help me sell for 10 ETH or more will split you off some sir!
