1/ I've been incredibly passionate about this space since I've made, sold and bought my first NFT, I'll continue to be here for years building.

Wanted to do a thread on some of the most valuable things I've learnt on the way 🧙‍♂️👇
2/ This will be a short thread, and summarized, enough attention and I will expand on these in an article.

• Staying solvent in this market.
• Your "free alpha".
• Relevance of your "brand".
• The wrong and the rights.
• Trying to "understand" the market.
3/ Staying solvent in this market.

You are sat on your couch watching some TV holding those JPEGs you just bought for $20K. You get a notification from each of your friends, "all of our NFTs just 10x'd in 10 minutes"

you sit up, check OpenSea, floor of your project is down 10%
4/ Look, first of all, if you are in the situation where the money you put into that JPEG is more than you can afford to lose...

then you are NGMI

that's rule 1. and rule 2 is to follow rule 1.

Play long-term games if your short-term thesis does not work out.
5/ All of my "oh, im going to flip for a little bit of profit" investments are also in projects i think are going up long-term

i have no issue to hold longer than i originally planned in situations like these

and you shouldn't either
6/ it's not about how fast you make the gains, it's about keeping them in the end of the day

remember that

this applies to projects you believe in anyways, i don't recommend playing the "greater fool" theory with NFTs
7/ Your "free alpha".

this is coming from me. someone deemed an "influencer" and someone who shares alpha occasionally. always take things with a bit of salt.

no one is your friend in this space. most influencers are planning to dump on your head.

they are NOT your friend.
8/ Relevance of your "brand".

skip the next 2 tweets if you are someone who keeps anon and does not publicly talk/trade NFTs

if you are someone who does

the first thing is that your "followers" aren't entitled to listen to you and your influence doesn't last forever
9/ the second thing is that you will be accused of things you have never done and it will mentally effect you

do not fall into this trap. also, especially if your account was made for fun only, do not let others guilt trip you into anything. this is general advice.
10/ The wrong and the rights.

who deems what is wrong or right in this space?

there are things that i believe are morally wrong in this space to do, from ways to make money and how you influence others

same way i believe there are rights deemed wrong by others
11/ people will burn you at the stake for things like:

e.g - tweeting about a project while listing

i do not believe there are any rules in Web3, but rather enforced social rules that you need to understand

you aren't safe from cancel culture, even in Web3
12/ Trying to "understand" the market.

do not TRY to understand everything in this market. it will confuse your brain and probably make you lose a lot of money.

meme nft going up? people like memes.
a derivative of meme nft going up? people like memes.
13/ at the same time

DYOR on other projects

a blockchain gaming project, i would do research on

the next Chubby Cub NFT that gives passive income?

i wouldn't even try to understand

this is something that i believe you should all think about if you are currently trading nfts.

what is your MADE IT money?

and, what do you do to get to it and what do you do after you have it?
15/ your MADE IT money changes a lot of things, especially in your journey in the NFT space, and i believe if you are currently investing in blue chips

you are going to hit that MADE IT money sooner than you think. 100x faster. because we are still early of course.
16/ think to yourself.

will an influencer shill you an extra bag to make it? will an influencer rug you on his "next" project to make it? will a "friend" pump and dump after telling you to buy his jpegs to make it?

some are NGMI. some are GMI.
17/ most of the tweets in this thread probably left a lot more questions in your head than when you originally read it

and i think its important as you answer them the more you progress in your journey, the faster your life does a 360.

we are all learning. stick around.
(!) remember this image whenever you feel lost or down in the space

whenever your portfolio is down from ATH

and coins are all down

the end goal:

1/ On sustainability of profile picture NFT projects.

How to match demand, benefitting holders, the future of them.

A thread with thoughts from a 🧙‍♂️👇
2/ Avatar projects have definitely been the biggest thing in the NFT space in the last 3 months. BAYC, Cool Cats, Mekas. To many of us, including myself, it allowed us to look at NFTs from another perspective.

The culture perspective. Community.
3/ I know of many people skeptical about avatar projects. And, it makes sense when you look at it from the general POV. People paying tens of thousands to represent themselves with a JPEG on Twitter.

However, the deeper you go, the more you understand where value arises from.

1/ The Timeless are Timeless ⌛️➖

Talking more about the purpose of Timeless inside of @TheTreeverse and why they exist.

A thread from a 🧙‍♂️👇
2/ Timeless is an avatar collectible drop, but will be developed into a brand.

They will be playable characters inside of Treeverse (development has started on the MMORPG) and a marketplace dedicated to them will be created.
3/ There will be no public sale.

If you own a private plot from the official Treeverse collection, you can mint for 0.222 ETH.

If you own an Nftree, you can mint for free.

Each plot/nftree will have a corresponding avatar with it.

im bearish on physical + nfts

we haven’t really found a great way to connect them both, and it destroys a big part of the NFT concept

argue with me
don’t get me wrong:

- NFTs as redeem for physical is cool.
- physicals as bonuses for NFTs is cool.

Not the “backed by NFT/physical”

1/ I looked into the Beanie Babies craze a bit deeper and wanted to compare it to the current state of NFTs.

It's something I think people mention without really understanding what they are talking about.

A thread from a 🧙‍♂️👇
2/ Beanie Babies are a line of stuffed toys that were created in the 90s by H. Ty Warner, an American businessman.

They originally sold for approximately $5, went on to sell for thousands, and now you can buy them at a dollar store. ImageImageImage
3/ Beanie Babies accounted for 10% of eBay's sales at one point. And, the craze made Ty Warner one of the richest men in the world at one point with a rough estimate of his net worth at $2.4bn.

Ty Warner pushed the value of BB up simply by introducing a scarcity method.

1/ NFT summer will be 1000x bigger than JPEG summer.

what do i mean? a thread from a 🧙‍♂️👇
2/ JPEG summer is a meme-term anyways, but replace the word "JPEG" with any other media file type like .mp4, .png, .gif... and we are all talking about the same thing.

emphasis on the art and collectibles aspect to NFTs which is definitely the main part of NFTs right now
3/ i am a strong believer in art and collectibles, my lovely JPEGs, and it's probably the fastest way to onboard people into NFTs.

"a digital image sold for this much?"

it's easy to have JPEG summer as a point of discussion

1/ I'm building a Play-To-Earn MMORPG, an insight into what is to come, built from a Metaverse.

The Runescape of Blockchain Games.

A thread, retweet if you are excited 👇
2/ Let me start from the beginning.

As most of you know me, I started as an artist selling Crypto Art and become an investor and founder... all while growing this Twitter through (shitposting?) and some helpful articles.

I am 100% dedicated to the future of NFTs.
3/ I've always had a passion for building, and this is my first (and biggest) project that I founded ~ @TheTreeverse 🌴

It started from an NFT collectibles project; then went on to become a full-blown Metaverse.
