Top Dog Beach Club lowers the bar

Wen I saw the no royalties tweets a week or so back I thought it was absurd. I paid no attention. I thought why on earth would anyone have a notion to wipe out the #1 reason most artists came to NFTs? But here we are. This piece from The

HDL is creating an NFT that pays dividends

I first heard about HDL corp. - hygienic dress league - from my friend djskeez. Skeez knows the score so I was all ears. I then joined HDL's twitter space to learn more. After listening to Steve and Dorota Coy, HDL's founders, I was in. What first jumped out at

Notes on the TokenFrame

More notes on the TokenFrame -- The TokenFrame came securely packaged. I didn't make any notes. But I do recall thinking they could have put a little more padding in. But overall, the packaging was good. Their setup interface is a little clunky if you have your NFTs on Ledger.

Content Marketing on Twitter is a Mistake

From my keyboard it appears that 99.9% of NFT projects rely on Twitter for their marketing, or to get their message out. I think this is a big mistake. A much better approach is build all marketing and messaging on their website. If you have something to promote or

"Half of my advertising isn't working. Problem is, I don't know which half". P.T. Barnum NFT projects rely on Twitter and Discord for engagement. Which means they know nothing about their customers. "spin you're old school. It's different now. In NFTs we don't need to know anything about our

Howdy! It's tax day. I know, we pay too much taxes. I know, most of the tax monies we pay are wasted. I'm a Gore Vidal Liberal. The only thing I agree with Republicans on is taxes - we should pay less. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't pay our

Are NFTs an asset? I don't believe so.

gm! In a Discord I'm in someone adamantly referred to NFTs as an "asset". I think doing so is a mistake. Super [https://twitter.com/IamSuperMassive] said the same in one of his videos. Because if NFTs are thought of as assets it then frames the entire discussion in terms

Why I'm buying NFTs

diamond hands, paper hands, floor, are nowhere

This morning I saw tweets from folks I adore with "diamond hands" in them. Got me thinking. Diamond hands and its ugly step-child "paper hands" are the wrong way to think about assets. I know some say an NFT isn't an asset. I disagree. First, both phrases feed group think
