and Doodles 2 is LIVE
you’re going private on Twitter, while I’m still letting my bad tweets and takes be *public* to the entire world…
we are not the same.
Doodles 2 is live.
the Dooplicators became active for Doodles holders on Tuesday night…and they showed off what had been building for the past 6 months.
what all that building (and no tweeting) did was produce a pretty cool cross-chain experience. the reveal looks a lot like what you would have seen from ripping a pack in Top Shot. but instead of cards, each Dooplicator produced 6 items (on Flow) of clothing with various rarities.
if you were unlucky, you just got some basic socks (though socks are still for sale currently for ~$20). if you had a rare Dooplicator, you had a better chance to rip some holographic items…including headbands, puffers, and masks.
now…all the gear is available for sale on the secondary markets. who’s buying them? well, not me, but that’s because I’m still confused about what I (a non-Doodle) holder will do with this gear but no dood.
so I imagine the only people using the marketplace are Doodles holders who will have the first-movers advantage. but if they want to pay $100 for some rare socks…by all means go for it.
jokes aside…it’s an intriguing achievement and one I’ll be monitoring closely (and praying gets some traction) as NFTs try to get off of Twitter and into more “normal” households via Instagram.
speaking of mass adoption…remember when Coinbase NFT was going to bring us to the promised land?
we held out and waited as they teased partner after partner. when it finally launched in May of 2022 it was far from huge…actually, it was quite the opposite.
it was a dud that led us directly into the bear market.
(thanks for nothing)
so yesterday, when a report that Coinbase NFT was shutting down started circulating…we all collectively started rejoicing. the stain would be gone! hooray! turns out though, it was just stopping *creator* drops.
(this makes FrankyNines’s latest launch of a turtles NFT one of the last drops on the platform…does that make it a historic NFT?)
that being said, it’s hard not to imagine that the inevitable shutdown of Coinbase NFT is somewhere on the horizon. with no artists to help bring legitimacy to the platform, it’s now just another marketplace (and the worst one at that).
so let’s pour one out preemptively to Coinbase NFT…and all that could have been.
remember the million-dollar open edition from Ness?
well, with success *usually* comes FUD. and Ness didn’t help himself as on Tuesday he posted to Instagram that he bought a G-Wagon with his new earnings.
(tbf, could you be any more cliche? the G-Wagon is the go-to car for any crypto bro)
it’s certainly not a good look, but what can we *really* say about the purchasing habits of someone who has recently come into a lot of money?
if BivNFT gets bought out by a big media company (DM’s are open btw), don’t expect me to be frugal. I’m buying the most baller beer fridge and hot tub money can buy.
so you do you, fam.
are checks going mainstream? or does this simply mark the top?
on Wednesday, Budweiser tweeted out a Checks VV derivative *suspiciously* close to the Super Bowl.
this didn’t lead to the pump, but it certainly didn’t hurt to see that Checks have penetrated the zeitgeist. yes, apparently, a big beer company even knows about the phenomena…which explains why their floor price has gone up 33% in the past 24 hours.
we might be witnessing some history. and yes, you can once again tell your future children how you missed out on generational wealth for the 1000th time.
see you Tuesday.
