NFT Games

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

Nifty League Degens – $NFTL going strong. Fun game for Degen holders.

Raini Lords of Light – p2e game. Rumor has it that the beta game will launch in a few weeks. Already has great cross chain assets, card staking, and more. https://discord.gg/2TbrB7mk5F

Free $$$ – New platforms and tokens/ airdrops

$WTF Response to the problems at release by the WTF team were pretty stellar. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I have confidence in this being around for a while. DYOR, but I”ve claimed and staked and it’s looking good. You can still claim here: https://fees.wtf/claim?ref=0x9346f1d460cbc0fca01997f1e5940fd55675173d

– a pretty amazing postmortem from the WTF team – https://medium.com/@feeswtf/fees-wtf-full-transparency-post-mortem-77dce12f4018

$LOOKS Token –

$GAS token –

$SOS token

Wonderland – $TIME, $MEMO, $wMEMO

-Still coming….There will be a drop of $BSGG to all holders of the above. This is the token of Betswap.gg – the first defi acquisition of the Wonderland behemoth. Prices of TIME have been down but the APR is still providing huge gains in the amount of time. $wMemo is over $100k

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).

– This interview with Coinbase’ head of product in regards to their forthcoming NFT platform is incredibly interesting. My takeaway – they are building a social network disguised as an NFT platform.

New Acquisitions

I picked up a Superlocal Pass yesterday. I missed the mint, but obviously the intersection of travel and NFTs is interesting to me. No idea if this will go anywhere, but the idea of minting NFTs for travel cred is really worth looking at.  https://pass.superlocal.com/

$WTF The liquidity was instantly drained and some called it a rug, but, the devs have persevered. Gas has been insane – which is funny and ironic. Lots of people lost $$ trying to sell. You can still claim here: https://fees.wtf/claim?ref=0x9346f1d460cbc0fca01997f1e5940fd55675173d

Wonderland – $TIME, $MEMO, $wMEMO

– Chatter in the discord indicates that the future focus will be on $wMemo and not $TIME – losses have been heavy for many.

A Post Scarcity Society

There is a very real possibility that we are on the edge of a post-scarcity society. The good news is that there are more opportunities for more people to have more of everything they need than at any point in human history. The bad news is that because we are still entrenched in exploitive and consumptive ecosystems created in a world where scarcity existed (and exists) – prices are going to go up and we are all in for some serious pain.

Lately I’ve been exploring ‘DeFi’ – decentralized finance. The ‘DeFi Summer’ happened in 2020 – essentially, a bunch of really smart people realized that using cryptocurrency, they could create new money from air – just like banks have been doing since banks were invented. The issue has always been that banks were necessary as the brokers of trust, but with the advent of trustless systems of financial governance – i.e. smart contracts, the banks are no longer needed.

DeFi is super complex. It makes my head spin. Gradually, I’m starting to ‘get it’ but the bottom line is this: it mostly works but every financial lesson I’ve learned in life screams that it shouldn’t. Watch this video to have your mind blown:

That’s really just the tip of the iceberg. NFTs – are largely a way to mint your own currency. Whatever someone will pay for it is what it is worth. Lots of these NFTs are now starting to jump into things like yield farming and defi. Here are a couple of NFT projects that are fairly deep in it:

https://www.solon.finance/

https://www.lazerdefi.io

Most major projects though are taking a more cautious approach. Generally, they start out with their PFPs (profile pics) in a 10k avatar project, then they issue some sort of IP (intellectual property), then they announce or start working on a game, finally, they launch a currency (for in-game use) that is also tradable on decentralized markets…and the next step is – see above.

Here are a couple of projects that are currently taking this approach: Punks Comic, Raini.io, Mighty Manateez, Deadheads, Satoshiverse, Bored Ape Yacht Club – and so many more. All of these currencies are (or will be) tradable for fiat currency. So, you can trade the NFTs or you can stake the NFTs to earn.

As I mentioned, the downside is that as more and more money is created, we are going to see money become increasingly worthless. Eventually, the whole scarcity – inflation – control system is going to break. I just hope it breaks the right way.
