6 a.m.— Awaken and begin my day with a walk around the park to get some fresh air, considering that I have actually been burning the midnight oil the last couple of days. I get some coffee, check work e-mails, and take a look at Discord updates from the NFT neighborhoods I belong of– it’s so tough to maintain!
I have actually been discussing purchasing 3 Essence tokens from FVCKRENDER. He’s a significant artist and I have actually been hearing a lots of buzz about his FVCK_AVATAR NFTs however attempting to conserve ETH for the Moonbirds mint. If I burn the Essence tokens, which suggests they can’t be utilized once again, I’ll get the possibility to acquire 3 FVCK_AVATAR NFTs. Examine OpenSea– too expensive of a flooring, it’ll most likely dip lower after all the FVCK_AVATAR NFTs are exposed.
9 a.m.— 2 of the NFT men I follow on Twitter, GratefulApe and Monster, post about an intriguing job with Wrangler denims and Leon Bridges by LTD.INC called Mr. Wrangler NFT collection. It’s a task that commemorates Wrangler’s 75th anniversary by mixing digital and style together. Hmm … NFT, VIP pass to a program, and a signed coat by Bridges? I might require to purchase into this job. I see in the Budweiser discord that NFT holders got airdropped brand-new NFTs made by artist Jason Naylor— I will require to examine later on. Leave the degen headspace and begin my work day.
1:30 p.m.— I get starving, so I warm up some remaining chicken and rice from last night. As I warm up my food, I see that crypto platform Moonpay is doing a panel at Bitcoin Conference in Miami, so I choose to inspect it out and see what’s the current there. Moonpay advises me of my Ape Fest 2021 poster, which they sponsored and offered at BAYC Ape Fest. There were just 2,000 posters. A great deal of apes will pay a great deal of cash for a few of these products they forgot to get at the occasion. I have actually seen a few of these posters cost numerous dollars.
This advises me– I text among my partners to get an upgrade on style work for a partnership I’m finishing with his rolling documents business called Elephant Rolling Documents I accredited 2 of my Mutant Ape NFTs– Mutant 8112 “Puff” and Mutant 2782 “Smoke”— to develop our own rolling documents. Production and styles are almost finished, however I require to deal with getting the word out.
