1/18/2022 – Morning Edition
As always there is a lot happening in the NFT space and if I’ve missed anything or you would like to see something else covered – reach out to me via DMs on Twitter (@vagobond) or in the Vagobond Discord at https://discord.gg/2nBRJJvyeR.
– Microsoft is buying Activision Blizzard in a huge $68.7 billion deal. There are rumors that Blizzard has been in talks to make the game for Pixel Vault/Metaheroes. Mind you, these are just rumors – but if true. Connect the dots.
– Coinbase and Mastercard have partnered to allow users to buy NFTs with credit cards on upcoming Coinbase NFT platform.
– NFT influencer ‘Beanie’ was doxxed yesterday which caused some price action in projects he was associated with as the consensus seems to be ‘not a nice guy’. There’s a lot of hand wringing going on from virtue signalers who are canceling him but much of it hypocrisy from people who made money along with him but aren’t jumping to give it back (or acknowledge it). Newsflash: Owning a punk or being an influencer doesn’t make someone trustworthy. Always DYOR and own your buying decisions. This is the wild west. https://twitter.com/NFTethics/status/1483051289022017538
– Wilder World just got $30 million fund raised with backing from Spartan Group, Animoca Brands and Metakovan’s MetaPurse: https://zine.wilderworld.com/wilder-world-secures-30-million-usdc-for-the-expansion-of-its-new-dimension-of-reality/
– Great thread on how to secure your NFTs

World of Cryptoids. – An interesting whitelist opportunity for closed beta game – will require installing BSC net on your metamask – https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf-ks_J8hTQ-JYyp0tsKCh95My6kdeUDn7FTz7ZN8D1DMaVuQ/viewform
Doctor Who, Worlds Apart P2E Game and NFT Marketplace – has been under development with the BBC for a couple of years now – the game is in Beta with those who hold founders tokens. This is a p2e game, a fully developed marketplace on a side chain, and a huge community. Recently opened up a limited batch of Founders Tokens (max of 1963 ever) and there are a few hundred left. I feel like this one is under the radar but will explode when the BBC gives the greenlight. There are credible rumors that there will be crafting and planets with land will be released this year. This is worth looking at. Probably a year before it matures completely. Founders Token sale continues (part 3 is well under way), tokens $1000 each. Gameplay continues in Beta among founders only. https://doctorwho-worldsapart.com/r/2909/
Influence Asteroids – https://discord.gg/Y3UsdRXvMQ Everything about the game:https://wiki.influenceth.io/en/community/content-creators

$SOS token – Still going. Staking is in place.
Wonderland – $TIME, $MEMO, $wMEMO
– Wonderland has purchased Cross the Ages https://medium.com/the-defi-wonderland/wonderland-enters-the-metaverse-bec1ad6091d1
– $TIME and $OHM prices continue downward. Devs and holders seem confident in future.
– An airdrop has been announced for Wonderland, the actual airdrops will be for wMEMO, MEMO, and TIME token holders on Avalanche, Fantom and Ethereum chains. This includes wMEMO being used as collateral on Abracadabra, in the same way that we include them for Snapshot voting. 100M BSGG tokens will be distributed evenly to HODLers of any Wonderland token based on snapshots taken on Jan 10th 8:00pm GMT. This is being done as a reward for their support at our low price point. An additional 400M BSGG tokens will be made available by staking wMEMO. Like the airdrop, the development team is working on a solution so that wMEMO used as collateral on Abracadabra will also be included. The 100M airdrop should happen sometime in the next 3-5 days.

About: Wonderland is not a liquidity mining farm. Founded by Daniele Sesta, Wonderland is a decentralized reserve currency protocol that owns its own liquidity rather than printing tokens out of thin air. In essence, reserve currency protocols have a claim on the value of the treasury itself. As the treasury grows, the claim token holders have grows (not accounting for premium).
