Hey guys, you heard about #BAYC or #cryptopunks and you ever wanted to start #NFTs #NFT but afraid of #blockchain #cryptos or the tremendous prices of these collections? Here is a thread to tell you how to join the NFT community in an affordable way 1/n
First, choose the ecosystem you want to dig in, #NFTs on ethereum can be sometimes difficult to handle, especially because of transactions fees, so I may advise you to start with a lower gas fee such as #Avalanche @avalancheavax: nice people, low gas fees, fast network 2/n
To begin with, you need #cryptocurrency #Crypto. If you are a newbie, start with a big exchange such as @binance. There is a website and an app: subscribe and you can get cryptos right away with credit card. For Avalanche you need to buy #AVAX 3/n

BOOOM 💥, part 2 of 10 is here as promised 😇 This one concentrates on #NFTs, Educate yourself ahead of others on #NFTs, this tweet will give you a totally different perspective of #NFTs, please read through and let me know your thoughts!
Most smart folks in #Crypto agree that most NFTs will go the way of most 2017 ZERO! NFTs will impact every sector of the economy,kids will own more stuff that “look like NFTs than physical items.” understand the impact NFTs will have by 2040 even if you don’t care today
An #NFT could be a share of stock, a virtual sword in a MMORPG, a profile picture on social media, a new unique digital art piece ( imagine owning one of #Banksy’s unique digital artwork as an #NFT) , a plot of land in the metaverse, or your data record on Facebook.

¿Te imaginas que las Meninas se convirtieran en un símbolo gallego? 🤨

Pués está ocurriendo en Ferrol.

Alguien está inundado el barrio de Canido de meninas modernas, críticas y radicales. Nada de versiones ñoñas cómo en la capital... incluso algún troleo 👹

Abro 🧵#StreetArt Image
Canido era una aldea cerca de Ferrol, convertido en barrio obrero en los años de prosperidad económica 🏠🏘️

Todo bien... hasta que los Astilleros de Ferrol comenzaron su declive ⛴️

Los barrios como Canido se despoblaron y deterioraron. Nada nuevo 😓
Entonces surgió una movida de ésas de #StreetArt 🖌️

Eduardo Hermida, un artista del barrio, decidió embellecer Canido pintando lo que considera un icono de la crítica social: una Menina 😱

¿Las Meninas un cuadro de crítica social? 🙄 Image

(1/12) #Dotdotdots: A thread and temporary change from my #BAYC pfp to shed some light on what I feel may be the next big NFT project, #dotdtotdots by @functionofdots. Available at…

(2/12) ..with a floor of 0.75 ETH and a supply of 4360 #dotdotdots (increases as Ethereum hits all time highs up to 10,000) and with 47.55% unique holders (2073), viewed from the perspective of both the innovative #NFT and #tradart worlds, I think it’s clear this project is a... Image

A Cold Warrior’s advice on dealing with #Russia…
1. If you look at Banksy’s art with the same set of eyes that you would use on a Monet garden scene or an Edward Hopper painting, you won’t get it. ImageImage
2. If you see Banksy’s work as social commentary, however, then it makes perfect sense. Art is simply the medium Banksy uses to have a word with the world, as he did in the “crude oil” style painting he entitled Monkey Poison. Image

1. Las conspiraciones sobre quién está detrás de #Banksy continúan🕵️🖌️🎨

La última teoría que se ha hecho viral es que el artista callejero es Neil Buchanan, presentador de "Art Attack" entre en 🇬🇧 1990 y 2007 (en 🇪🇦 era el que hacía los enormes murales).…
2. Todo empezó con un tuit (que ya cuenta con más de 2 mil 🔄 y casi 10 mil ❤️)
Que señala el rumor basándose en que el presentador también es músico y que sus giras coinciden con los lugares donde han aparecido pintadas de #Banksy
3. Por su parte, Neil Buchanan ha negado ser el famoso grafitero en su página web. Image

Police brutality is abhorrent, but #PsyOpBob played no innocent roll. Everybody there knew he wanted to cause trouble, and was calling him out. He brought a helmet, but did he put it on when the cops came? No, but he put on a mask. #BuffaloPD #SocialEngineering #CivilWar
I've seen many a #CrisisActor, but this guy is a like their stunt double. Sure, he probably did hit his head, but it was "all for the cause". I don't buy the fake blood thing. That would make the cops actors too...
which ain't that far of a stretch considering whackness out here.
I have no idea who to trust any more, but I definitely know who not to trust. So if this is going down, I'm going to support the guy who lets me defend myself form the #LiberalZombieApocalypse, with force if necessary.
I'm Packin' #MAGA for my protection.

Edinburgh Place is full for the #HK rally in solidarity w #Uighurs . In our nearly 800 protests since 6/9, this is only the 3rd to stand for others. There was a small 1 at CUHK for Uighur uni pres rumored sentenced to death & 1 for Catalunya.
Great to see the #EastTurkestan & #Tibet flags flying at the #HK solidarity rally for #Uighurs. Our fate is tied to theirs. We all have to fight together for our freedom & our rights.
Free #IlhamTohti , Free All Political Prisoners at #HK rally for #Uighurs . Ilham just received EU parliament’s #SakharovPrize this week. He’s serving life in prison in China on the entirely false charge of ‘separatism’. His daughter @JewherIlham accepted the award on his behalf.

Short thread on how I got involved in #Activism - I have been an activist since I was 17 (1989) - I campaigned with EarthWatch Ireland about, 'The Greenhouse Effect' (now #ClimateChange) raw sewage / river pollution and recycling.
In 1994, I moved to London for work and joined @GreenpeaceUK as a volunteer working on #StopEsso campaign and #SaveorDelete an Ancient Forests campaign. In 2002, #Banksy worked with us to create a poster and I was in charge of sending them around the UK along with this stencil
