6 a.m. — Wake up and start out my working day with a walk about the park to get some contemporary air, because I have been working late the final couple days. I get some espresso, test perform emails, and search at Discord updates from the NFT communities I am a element of — it is so tough to hold up!
I’ve been debating acquiring 3 Essence tokens from FVCKRENDER. He’s a main artist and I have been listening to a ton of excitement about his FVCK_AVATAR NFTs but hoping to preserve ETH for the Moonbirds mint. If I burn the Essence tokens, which suggests they can’t be applied yet again, I’ll get the opportunity to acquire 3 FVCK_AVATAR NFTs. Check OpenSea — too significant of a flooring, it’ll most likely dip lower following all the FVCK_AVATAR NFTs are disclosed.
9 a.m. — Two of the NFT fellas I abide by on Twitter, GratefulApe and Beast, put up about an intriguing project with Wrangler denims and Leon Bridges by LTD.INC named Mr. Wrangler NFT assortment. It is a job that celebrates Wrangler’s 75th anniversary by blending electronic and fashion with each other. Hmm…NFT, VIP pass to a exhibit, and a signed jacket by Bridges? I may will need to get into this task. I see in the Budweiser discord that NFT holders obtained airdropped new NFTs manufactured by artist Jason Naylor — I will will need to investigate afterwards. Go away the degen headspace and start off my function working day.
1:30 p.m. — I get hungry, so I heat up some leftover hen and rice from past evening. As I warmth up my foods, I see that crypto system Moonpay is undertaking a panel at Bitcoin Conference in Miami, so I decide to verify it out and see what is the newest there. Moonpay reminds me of my Ape Fest 2021 poster, which they sponsored and gave out at BAYC Ape Fest. There were only 2,000 posters. A lot of apes will spend a good deal of funds for some of these things they forgot to get at the party. I have observed some of these posters provide for hundreds of dollars.
This reminds me — I textual content just one of my collaborators to get an update on design and style function for a collaboration I am doing with his rolling papers enterprise termed Elephant Rolling Papers. I licensed two of my Mutant Ape NFTs — Mutant 8112 “Puff” and Mutant 2782 “Smoke” — to build our personal rolling papers. Manufacturing and designs are just about done, but I want to do the job on obtaining the phrase out.
