2/13/2022 – Weekend Edition

Aloha and GM

Man. I needed that day off. Now it’s Super Bowl Sunday and here we are. Let’s see what the day brings. I don’t really care about sports – but I grew up in Southern California so ‘Go Rams!’ Today could be a good driver for NFT adoption moving forward – or the complete opposite. Let’s see how it goes.

Non-Fungible Heroes – https://www.nfheroes.io/ An NFT version of Disney or Looney Tunes

https://opensea.io/assets/matic/0x931204fb8cea7f7068995dce924f0d76d571df99/3

 

Cult Daohttps://app.cultdao.io/ | Manifesto

 

SuperCreatorshttps://supercreators.io – This one is weird because it reads like a new age religion but like most new age religions – it looks like a cash grab. I’d love to be wrong about this.

“This is the first Conscious NFT of this calibre. The Super Creators mission is to bring peace, harmony, success and abundance to you and everyone around you. By equipping and holding one of these tokens not only will you be one of the 2222 select few (out of the 3 Million+ Following we have right now) to carry a Super Creator, but you will also have access to all the super powers, training, knowledge and magic that these Super Creators possess. How? Take a look at the roadmap for a brief insight to your potential future.”

That word ‘abundance’. Yeah – fuck this one. This is the kind of cult I don’t want to be a part of.

 

Tokens & Staking

These are the tokens and crypto/defi projects that NFTs have led me to. Bizarre when you think about it.

Solon – https://www.solon.finance/ I minted this what seems like 500 years ago. Love the art but the token and the vision are what actually made me mint.

 

$WTF – You can still claim here for a few more days:

Great Projects I’m Not In or Following:

aka projects I missed and am salty about. There are too many – see the whole list at:

https://vagobond.com/nft-101/great-nft-projects-ive-missed/

Missed in February: Generative Dungeons, Heroes,

 

The Graveyard

These are projects that I wanted to believe in that simply seem like they are dead. I bought into many of these instead of the winning projects above. Take that as a warning. I sincerely hope that they resurrect – but when I put them here, it means that I’ve stopped believing and looking. I hope to someday have a section at the top called ‘Resurrections’ for when projects in the Graveyard manage to rise up again. As time goes on, I have no doubt this will be the biggest section of this newsletter and I will let it keep growing so that those who care to look can understand that the majority of projects fail and investors lose money. Pick wisely, my friends, and good luck!

See the huge full list at https://vagobond.com/nft-101/nft-project-graveyard/

Februray Graveyard Residents Added:

Tiki Festival https://tikifestival.io/ I held on to hope as long as I could. Frenchie is still working, but I think this is a graveyard project now. Frenchie is iterating…

One Day Bae https://onedaybae.io/ This is a favorite project. It vibed with me just right. Nothing is happening now. I don’t want to move it to the graveyard – but I have to. Maybe it will resurrect. Game and roadmap delayed.

Heaven Computer https://heaven.computer/ Female led, amazing art project. Godmin abides but there is nothing happening here.
