A lot of people don't know this, but you used to choose your moves before the battle in @AxieInfinity... order of moves for your 3 axies, and the battle would autoplay and cycle through moves. Turn based was just a dream then. Nobody thought it would ever ship.
Before that, Axies just bobbed up and down on the screen. You could only buy, sell, trade them. People had doubts they would ever make them playable. Autobattles were just a dream then. Nobody thought it would ever ship.
I could do this all day. In fact, I think I will create a long form piece about the numerous times Axie was doubted and the numerous times they persisted and delivered. I won't hide the mistakes. Nobody is perfect. There are always consequences to every path you choose, but..
one thing I know is that you can count on Axie to do their absolute best because they are people I truly believe to be doing their absolute best to help people and change the world for the better with new technology and a game.

Back in the day, I built this website for tracking Axies' who were the first to have a given part. I sucked bad enough to have something that didn't update automagically, but it didn't matter with low IDs because they didn't change.…
I built a tool that grabbed all the Axies and read their part metadata. It started at one and worked its way to higher IDs. For each loop, it checked against a list of parts. Once it found a particular part, it would update that variable to the Axie ID for that part...
You could only grab so many IDs as once, so the tool had to make multiple calls. I used building this as practice with Javascript promises, reading from APIs, loops, dealing with variables, etc... Coming up with an idea and then trying to do it will always teach you something.

Reading some Steve Jobs:

"I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life.

We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4,000 employees.

Don’t lose faith.

You’ve got to find what you love.

our work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.
Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.


Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important...

What if we could find ways to turn solving hard science like cancer and viruses into games. Science is mostly guessing and checking. What if unsolved science problems could be represented as games, and give access and rewards to millions of people for solving?

Money from grants could be used to reward puzzle solvers and boost liquidity. Staking tokens could mean you get rewarded anytime someone solves a puzzle. All sorts of cool possibilities to use blockchain to solve all kinds of real world problems. As young kids grow up..

Imagine transactions on $eth as cars on a road.

Cars depend on oil. Throughout history, oil was plentiful. Spend it, buy it.. whatever. It was easy to come up with. Shit, set it on fire if you want to.

But lately, oil is drying up.

With traditional oil, more oil..
is easy to find. Dig deeper, develop new tech.. you get the idea.

With $eth, there is no more oil.. anywhere.. ever.

The graph above is how $eth looks now, but in Q2 of 2022 there will be a 90% reduction in the supply that is paid out to the securers of the blockchain.
The number of the cars on the road and peoples' dependence on cars isincreasing rapidly. Gas has been rising steadily (207 now, normal lately). What used to be abnormally high the new normal. Users are still finding more value in executing their transactions than the cost..

Let's look at how the average gas on @ethereum has shot up recently.

This happens everytime a drop happens.
This happens everytime there's volatility.
This happens everytime there's a hot NFT.

Each one of these activities is happening more and more frequently.

All it takes is one 100x, but you need to have ammo to make it really turn into a monster bag.

Always be finding ways to get more ammo without taking on debt, and only bet the farm when you KNOW you're gonna win.
Find ecosystems where you can run experiments and learn cheaply. Find niches you can specialize in and profit from. Cycle most profits into your base assets and fewer into your high reward bets. Continue to do this over and over again. The new entrants will likely be doing..
This mostly on L2s and sidechains. This is the way.
