(The Vagobond NFT daily briefing has become too long for gmail to deliver! – see the entire briefing at https://vagobond.com/vagobond-nft-collectors-morning-briefing-thursday-travel-nft-edition-2-10-2022 )
Aloha and GM
DAOs are changing the world of business and finance. How? No one is really sure yet, but it’s happening. Fridays, I look at the DAOs I’m invested in – they are pretty far ranging – publishing, finance, investing, metaverse, crypto, food – but they only touch the tip of the iceberg. I get overwhelmed just looking at it. Next week, I’m hoping to bring someone in to take on our DAO beat who is much better versed in all of this and will be able to make a much more cohesive view of the ecosystem as a whole. For now, pardon my brevity and confusion on this week’s beat. TGIF – I’m ‘mintxausted’.
This morning’s cover (on Vagobond) is Elite Ape from Punks Comic – Hanzu.
* ALPHA * – The Vagobond Discord is one of the best free alpha servers around. You might see it in this briefing, but you’ll definitely see it in the Alpha channel of our discord first.

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:
Missed in February: Generative Dungeons, Heroes,
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!

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.
