What is a PFP? - 12/03/2022

 

Reddit not too long ago did a release of PFP (Profile Picture) to use on your account by up and coming artist. They recently sold out of all collections of released fist generation pfps.

https://activerain.com/blogsview/5746986/updated-my-reddit-cavstheblockfan-but-havent-spent-much-time-there 

You will likely hear it advertised on Discord or Twitter through collections. 

The sales pitch is to own your identity and show off your individuality across ecosystems and social media platforms. 

So far what you will see is a 2d nft and they will most of the time say you can use your profile picture as featuring it in the Discord server will unlock long term benefits with exclusive access to different channels, community experiences. I have seen them used as token locks for channels to get into chat rooms with professional athletes, artist and musicians.

Crypto market tied to stock market what about IRA and ETF - 12/02/2022

 

There have been a fair amount of articles written that say that the price of crypto coins are going in line with the stock market.

That makes me wonder why that might be, the impact of the strength of the U.S. dollar?

The impact of the fed raising interest rates?

The impact of growth stocks vs traditional earnings per share models? 

If you have watched crypto world on cnbc they have had ceo after ceo come on to say that regulation is needed to safe guard the investor this does make me think about institutional monies and the claim that the markets will spike once that money is allowed to enter, what I havent seen is where these funds are set aside and why these investors/hedge funds havent teamed up with centralized systems like Coinbase that can work custody of wallets and to secure funds. 

Forbes article explained it like this "an employer-adopted 401(k) plan with employees will likely not allow for any alternative investment options because of ERISA fiduciary rules. "  in their article  Bitcoin IRA: How To Invest For Retirement With Cryptocurrency

However Coinbase had a jump it its share price when they announced their deal to help Blackrock with bitcoin and crypto investments recently.

https://www.fidelity.com/social-media/metaverse Fidelity and others already have directed IRA setup that allow crypto investments.

FIDELITY METAVERSE ETF 

(FMET)

 

Fidelity Crypto Industry and Digital Payments ETF (FDIG)

I have heard that IRA when more coins can be purchased and used into a fund will be a driver along with spot trading, basically allowing funds to be used to day trade which they say adds liquidity to the market. 

It was puzzling to me to see rejection again by the SEC for spot trading when they keep rejecting some companies and allow others and adding to etf options https://www.coindesk.com/business/2022/10/11/wisdomtrees-spot-bitcoin-etf-rejected-by-the-sec/ 

but they allowed a public traded company to short bitcoin as a trade. 

https://www.linkedin.com/posts/brandonjordan_nyse-opening-bell-biti-activity-6947640990924955648-5dbU?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_desktop

I ask  proshares biti on Linkedin

"ProShares what is the key difference between your etf short and the short positions with available margin trades and long position trades with KuCoin Exchange and others?

Are you going to be offering a long position etf #btc ?"             Received no response.

 

 

There are six already allowed to trade spot etf bitcoin

ProShares Short Bitcoin ETF (BITI)

Global X Blockchain & Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITS)

AdvisorShares Managed Bitcoin Strategy ETF (CRYP)

VanEck Bitcoin Strategy ETF (XBTF)

Valkyrie Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BTF)

ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITO)

Forbes just wrote an article this week about these along with cost to trade if you want to find more info on it.

Why Burger King failed at their 1st NFT - 12/01/2022

 Lets start at where we stand and then go back through a high overview of the state of Burger Kings 1st NFT launch.

 

 

 

Why do you think some companies fail at web3?

 

https://realmeals.sweet.io/ they have no forwarding setup to the 2nd market available nfts of their collection for any collectors that might of missed the collection and would want to pick up the King or the Crown or any of the celebrities that were featured in the #keepitrealmeals to help with potential sales

 

https://opensea.io/assets/matic/0x6137762be4343abd6d6a6dfe48c1231efd0838a6/328 this is a link to the individual page (this is one I collected by going to Burger King and scanning the box and picking up one of the meals) this page which in itself looks ok except for the title of the collection you will notice the title The King - GOFerTTAQ4 for the collection instead of just The King this displays on each individual page for each nft so that should be an easy fix.

 

 

The creator fee is 0 % while there is some discussion on royalty collection and how that might be treated by government agencies in the future and I could understand them coming back to say liability wise they didnt want to charge collectors/customers, you have stepped into the NFT market with this release so little late to show concern for NFT being held to a security. I will say it has come to be accepted by collectors that to help support marketing of and continued collections i.e. websites, servers, programmers who work on the NFTs that royalty is charged. If you were going to not charge a royalty that is a marketing in itself that should of been and could of been pushed on socials.

 

 

 

All of the NFT collections have no banner on the collection page

 

 

 

 

Sweet the 3rd party that partnered with Burger King didn't allow transfers on most accounts until recently from their sweet wallets they only allowed people to trade not purchase these NFTS on the marketplace for other NFTs. It was a good idea to get into NFTs for Burger King I feel but the way it looks and feels looks like it was an attempt to get people to buy something Burger King wouldn't support with this NFT collection and used NFTS to get people to buy a meal as a one off instead of trying to help build their brand through the NFTS and have future releases.

 

I would question why they didnt touch base with media partners when people were starved for NFTS stories at the time, why not go to coinmarket cap, coin gecko, coin desk, decrypt and the like for nft news to have articles written more than they did, why not have the NFT within the original commercial spots, they are a national brand and could of leveraged their influence to drive the NFT collections popularity, in app scan was short lived and could of had been more of a draw push features enabled to drive NFT box scans and in the end sell more meals. If you were looking on socials you would see employees were unaware of the campaign and didn't know what people were asking for with the boxes and or didn't have them in stock when the posters were at the stores.

 

 

 

This is not the norm unlike other NFTS that are available to be purchased and This was released a year ago now so they didnt take advantage of the drop to support the 2nd market and or collectors who were excited that Burger King as a brand entered into the NFT space instead they self contained in the Sweet wallets and lost all buzz and excitement for the collection by not allowed decentralized exchange and you cant move to your wallet to oh lets say use in a nft gallery for example. Here is a gallery I have not made via Oncyber galleries https://twitter.com/CavsTheBlockFan/status/1586929031705989120

 

Image

 

 

When looking at the token on polygonscan there is at least a label there of the king but again, no socials listed making this not look legit when being reviewed by anyone that looks at this link off of opensea which is currently the highest volume nft marketplace. They also havent verified their code on the contract and shows that here... https://polygonscan.com/token/0x6137762be4343abd6d6a6dfe48c1231efd0838a6#readContract

 

 

 

 

There is also poor interaction with metamask one of the most downloaded wallets to interact with, lastly the 3d nft only seems to work within the sweet wallet so to my mind thats poor programming and design as when you could interact with the nft in galleries where 3d nfts can be display its not though of by creators of this nft to make sure it works outside of sweet to be fully interoperable.

The Emperor Wears No Clothes at Twitter - 11/30/2022

 I think personally that Elon Musk is a great salesman and does come up with some creative ideas from time to time along with other great minds that he is wise enough to hire. I dont think he ever intended to buy Twitter, I think he took a stock portion and wanted to get a return on his stock purchase and wanted to see some changes at Twitter but when he tweeted that he was going to take private and at what price he had done the same thing with Tesla previously SEC removed his position within the company as a result.  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/29/business/tesla-musk-sec-settlement.html

I had owned a small amount in retirement of Twitter shares before years ago when they hadn't yet turned a profit ever, I looked at them as a stable in social media that wouldn't go anywhere you can turn on ESPN and find # this or that.

I have used Twitter a good bit over the years so not happy to see the gutting of the company by Musk hands which included those that would have direct reporting on safety to the government agencies, this I believe shows the flaws in such a founder running a company that's not really a CEO. I at first thought this was to move the debate up on section 230 about liabilities of whats posted by members on social media and the responsibilities of those post and moderation under freedom of speech. This move is likely I think to bring heavy lawsuits against the company and Musk, you might of heard he went back to some he fired once he found out what it was they actually did and many said no thank you I will take my sever package. I now cant understand how you take over a company and first week fire people before you know their role at the company.




You might have also heard many left when he said plan to work long hours or leave. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-63648505 so they are leaving.

I understand their is a open investigation now to the ties to Saudi government funding of Elons companies including Twitter and if they are provided private direct messages access within the company. https://www.axios.com/2022/10/31/chris-murphy-twitter-elon-musk-saudi-arabia I support this move and I support the investigation of TikTok for security issues. https://www.cnn.com/2022/11/02/tech/fcc-commissioner-tiktok-ban

 

I have hopes that Elon Musk wont use the personal messages from Twitter to feed his GTP3 openai https://openai.com/ machines which could then be fed for learning purposes via neural network on communications which could lead to https://neuralink.com/ chip implants into humans based on learning from communications and data in part from Twitter, I would say as much as I find Twitter a tool to look up news at a given time in no way would I want it to be used as a data source for history or truth of facts. I hold very little regard for our regulators in the way of regulation on this matter Musk has laid out just how anyone could go ahead and do whatever they want in AI and regulation cant catch up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zdy6m3pvdNE I did watch Elon Musk on the Joe Rogan show and he talked of how he tried to warn anyone that would listen about AI and that it could be used as a weapon only to find no one doing anything about it and he resided himself to a "fatalistic" view this is who is heading the AI movement in large part with OpenAI Neuralink.
