Get A CLU — NFTs

Photo credit: Valamuska

Oh, it’s you. You’re here giving me puppy-dog eyes like you always do.

Well, obviously I’ll tell you all you need to know about NFTs. Because this isn’t just some basic crypto chick post; this is a LEGENDARY basic crypto chick post full of: Sneaky Bro Art, basic facts about what NFTs are and everything I learned about them yesterday before writing this post, and maybe, perhaps, sneak peeks I like to call nudge-nudge wink-winks!

Pfft, that’s an NFT. If you’ve read me before—and you better have, you saucy minx—I mentioned NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, in my Crypto Slang 101 post. To put it simply, it can be any sort of digital media that gets added to a blockchain for whatever purpose its creator wants.

One of my favorite NFTs from Sneaky Bro Art!

But like, what is it really? What is its purpose in life? An NFT could be a digital picture limited to one person or given to a certain amount. It could be a song or video or an entire musical event, distributed to many. It could even be a digital character inside a play-to-earn game that can be used to play with, which garners its value based on its functionality inside the game.

Essentially, it can be anything you want in digital media that you’re wishing to share for sentimental value or in hopes of making all that money-honey one day.

The Learner Quest NFT was animated for the first 2500 shareholders who completed the quest checklist on the CluCoin website.

“You’re not making any sense” Break! Still not sure? Let me give you an example. In the play-to-earn game Axie Infinity, Axies (the creatures you use to fight with) are they themselves NFTs and worth value if sold on the marketplace.

They can be utilized to earn SLP (Smooth Love Potion) or AXS (Axie Infinity)–both tokens associated with the game–in either a daily adventure setting for SLP or the arena, where you can earn SLP and AXS. Not only that, but you can breed them in order to sell them on the marketplace, because Axies themselves are worth roughly four-hundred dollars at the time of this post.

Read more about play-to-earn and why it’s a major cornerstone goal of CLU’s tokenomics.

So, what if I took a screenshot and said it was mine? You may be able to “keep” the image of the art you screenshotted or watch the video, but without its contract and proof of ownership, you won’t be able to sell it. It’d be like a poster print-out of the Mona Lisa. It wouldn’t hold any value without proof of ownership.

All the data and proof can be found on the blockchain.

A huge shoutout to Max, part of CLU’s development team, for explaining NFT contracts and giving me more details than I would ever put in this post out of fear of scaring us basic crypto types.   

What makes it worth a pretty penny? Like art, the value is based off who owns it, who created it, and how in demand it is. Obviously, the more limited edition, the better. Also, what utility does it have? Like, can it perform magic tricks or cast spells on unsuspecting FUDDERs who say, “But that’s not art!”

Okay, if you find an NFT that does all that, you come talk to this basic crypto chick and we’ll negotiate.

But really, it’s supply and demand. If it’s a hot commodity, it’ll sell well on (one of few marketplaces they can be publicly bought on).

So, understandably, CluCoin is presently dipping into not only the play-to-earn market but NFTs as well.

They recently launched their Beta Quest NFT challenge on their website. And before you ask, yes, I got my animated Articuno…er, robot owl created by Sneaky Bro Art.

The Master Beta Quest is next, and you bet your cute behind I’m aiming for that dreamscape pink-feels fantasy picture. It’s my favorite and you’ll have to fight me for it.

But that’s not all CluCoin will have to offer for NFTs. Thanks to my tenacious, some may even say desperate, efforts in CLU’s Discord and Telegram chat rooms, I was able to catch a sneak peek of what DNP3 called the Generative Goober Collection.

Sneaky Bro Art has been hard at work on this brand-new concept for the CluCoin NFTs. I may or may not have bugged them about what generative goobers even meant. What one of these handsome and talented enough to put some STANK on it brothers told me was that it simply meant randomized goober NFTs that CLU holders were going to obtain in a multitude of ways.

Everything will generate randomly, which will require some special engineering and math from the CLU team.

The Goober Collection will be ahead of its time and brand-new to the NFT space. It’s unlike anything out there, and it will be of the highest quality because that’s the nature of Sneaky Bro Art. From common accessories, outfits, colors, and backgrounds to rare, more detailed everything to a one in a million Super Goober NFT, the collection promises to be the coolest new thing to hit the NFT world.

I know. I saw it too, and what I saw was like, super duper Goober cool.

Make sure you watch this space for more details as they become available.

Check out all the CluCoin NFTs distributed over the last few months and the ones still waiting to be claimed on their website.

View and buy ones listed on Opensea.

Rule of Thumb: Whenever getting a new NFT, it’s customary to name it so you’ll never be able to sell it.

Like the cryptocurrency world, NFTs are ever-changing and finding new uses and looks every day, so make sure to check them out to see what tickles your fancy.

Make sure to pop over to Sneaky Bro Art’s Twitter to see what other amazing things they’ve put together!

Not Your Typical Romance

Most of you are aware I’m presently venturing into serial writing and a new way to tell a story. One such story is delving into heavier topics and darker places. It isn’t normally what I write. It deals with dubious consent–something a lot of people struggle with–and elements of sadistic pleasure from vengeance.

My heroine isn’t the typical one I write, and for good reason. She toes the line between good and evil because her rough upbringing and being half demon. Her hatred for men in general is what sets her apart from other characters I’ve written because it’s a driving factor for why she fights.

She doesn’t fight to save others. She fights to punish men.

I wanted to encapsulate a heroine who embraced her darkness. Think Harley Quinn but minus the drive for romantic entanglement. Even her favorite weapon is a bat.

The storyline? At this stage the only things I know are that her relationship with Nova is pleasure central. I have toyed with different motives behind his character and landed on one I’m hoping to build on. But the story doesn’t have much fleshed out presently.

You’ll still be barely getting to know the characters and their relationships with each other. It won’t be clear how they all play together, outside of Ty and Lady, who have a mutual distaste for one another.

What is clear is Lady’s friendship with Jordy being the reason she hasn’t gone totally off the rails. He’s the anchor to the good she needs in her life; that burst of hope and light in a sea of darkness. Their friendship, as it may seem, will eventually elevate to something resembling romance, but not at present.

So far, I’ve posted 7 episodes that range from uncomfortably triggering to all spice and everything nice. I wrote on Wattpad as a way to try out this story without the pressure of delivering anytime soon and to play with themes I hadn’t written before.

The timeline at present is pretty all over the place because of multiple projects I’m working on at the same time, but I’ve been delivering episodes every couple days or so.

Start reading!

I do list some trigger warnings, but all the episodes are free to read on Wattpad. Make sure you check out my other reads if this one isn’t for you!

Get A CLU–Axie Scholarship

Image by CluCoin

So, you’ve got your fancy-shmancy CLU wallet, and now you’ve decided to join the Discord community. Because, clearly, that’s where all we cool people live.

So, you’re hum-hawing around the chat, talking to friendlies, eyeballing your next best buddy, steadily practicing all the new crypto slang you’ve learned from yours truly, and someone mentions the crazy new play-to-earn opportunities like Axie Infinity the CLUmmunity has to offer.

Well, welcome to another reason to be excited about CLU.

What is play-to-earn? Play-to-earn is exactly the way it sounds. All you’re required to do is play and you can earn something in return. Different games will sport different reward systems, and it’ll be important to understand their gameplay to benefit most from them.

What is Axie Infinity, and why does it sound like a superhero? Axie Infinity is a trending NFT game where you can play to earn tokens, quite literally—SLP (Smooth Love Potion) and AXS (Axie Infinity)—with tasks outlined in the game’s interface. Its gameplay is easy and fairly quick to learn. And when you get better, you can earn more through the arena, otherwise known as PVP.

In this video, one of the CLU Ambassadors explains what Axie Infinity is. He breaks down the key notes to the scholarship and play, so make sure to check it out and subscribe to his awesome videos!

What’s this fancy scholarship program? CLU invested in not only Axie Infinity but its own holders to create a scholarship program where people from the CLUmmunity would be sponsored to play. Each scholar, to which presently CLU has over hundred, is given a team of three Axies to play the game with.

Axies range based off ability and are very valuable themselves. But for entry level, a team of three can cost approximately $1000.

What are scholars, and how are they important to CLU? Scholars are the CLU holders who applied during the first and second wave to be sponsored by CLU to play Axie Infinity. Scholars must bring a certain amount of SLP a week (though the amount is subject to change due to new season earning potential changes) to maintain their spot (dailies and adventure are worth 75 SLP), of which CLU takes a percentage to reinvest back into itself.

Basically, CLU is quite literally rolling in the SLP! In a month, CLU has already matched their investment.

As such, scholars are helping CLU bring in outside money to reinvest into the token to pay for events and giveaways, and other CLU-specific necessities. So, unlike in the past, the team will not need to pull directly from CluCoin’s funds because the money is being made elsewhere. The Axie Infinity Scholarship made this possible, and it’s a total game-changer.

What do scholars get out of the deal? Obviously, scholars earn their own cut based off how much they garner over the month and the price of SLP (as it is a crypto coin as well), which will vary at time of withdrawal. Scholars are rewarded if that is reinvested back into CLU by upping their holder roles over time, meaning scholars get more benefits the higher role they have in CLU.

Season 18 Axie Infinity Changes discussed.

An approximate monthly earning at the time of this post for someone garnering the average SLP daily is around $800. Meaning, CLU’s scholars are earning a part-time income simply by playing a game.

Why am I here writing to you guys when I could be off playing Axie Infinity? I call shenanigans!

How does one become a fancy, SLP-earning scholar? Presently, CLU isn’t accepting new applications to become a scholar, but there’s talk about another wave to bring more in. The best thing you can do is become a presence in CLU’s discord and actively engage with the community. CLU rewards its strongest community supporters, so the more you help, the more opportunities you will have to be a part of something amazing.

You can join CLU’s Telegram as well!

Axie Infinity is just the start. CLU will be investing in more projects down the road, like The Sandbox Game, Ember Swords, and Rust which will offer similar opportunities. Meaning, just by being a part of this community, you’re already making a difference in someone’s life.

Play-to-earn is only one thing out of a horde of awesome things that makes CLU different and remarkable. CLU has already changed many people’s lives in just under three months since its conception, and it will continue to do so because the community behind it is already unbelievably strong.

Get A CLU–Whitepaper

Image by CluCoin

Hey! You’re back. But of course you are, because you think I’m the cutest little basic crypto chick you ever did see!

Maybe you’re here to do your research. Maybe you’ve bought CLU and are thinking “Now what?” Maybe you’ve had CLU for a while, stumbled upon this little slice of wordsmith heaven, and your momma didn’t raise no quitter so you’re going to read to the end even when you know everything there is to know about crypto and CLU.

Whatever the case, we’re so glad to have you here!

Check out this amazing video on CluCoin’s page!

CLU is working towards gaining visibility and traction. It’s starting to appear in places big to the crypto world like PancakeSwap and BitMart. It’s being talked about all over the internet, and, at best, the testimonials are conflicted and often guided by misinformation.

First, CLU is still fairly new. Only released a couple months ago, CLU started off with all eyes on it and people chanting “Wen Moon?”

But ultimately, this coin was developed for the long game. It’s a coin meant to be held, and reflections (a percentage distributed to all shareholders with every transaction) are attained the longer you keep it.

Not to mention, holding longer is better for tax reasons. Though, in no way shape or form am I in any position to give financial advice. That’s what my accountant is for, and he gets paid a pretty penny every year because of it.

So, understandably, the team behind CLU has developed and adapted to necessary changes in their white paper and the path towards its fundamental goals. The white paper details the coin’s roadmap of success and its destinations for how it will be achieved. Essentially, it’s an outline of what CluCoin is all about and its overall vision.

On the new CluCoin website (read more about it in my previous post), you can find a live roadmap that will be updated any time the team accomplishes another line on the map!

CLU was built on the idea of a community making a difference and helping others. Already, the CLUmmunity is vastly invested in several opportunities like Axie Infinity and several exchanges.

Organized rewards have and will continue to be held for CLU’s holders through roles and occasional perks like NFTs and holder-specific programs. For this reason, CLU has become a social experience that would rival any cosplayer convention—bonds forever forging in a fast-paced, jargon-totting, game-playing, and ridiculously fun environment.

Check out the quests and Sneaky Bro Art NFTs on the site!

More about the community can be read in the white paper.

Thankfully, the team behind CLU is so savvy and considerate, they wrote their white paper with new-to-crypto readers like yourself in mind. Even I didn’t have trouble following it. And that’s saying something since I have to read everything crypto related five times over to gain a scant bit of understanding.

Presently, the roadmap details to the end of the year, at which point an updated roadmap will be provided. So far, several things on the list have already been accomplished.

To keep it brief, unlike the stories my twelve-year-old daughter tells me, I’ll only list what still hasn’t happened.

At the time of this super fabulous informative post from yours truly, these are what are expected next: vesting contracts for holder roles, play-to-earn, esports team, media team, CLU card wallet, and exchange planning.

You can find a more detailed breakdown about these points in the white paper. And I promise it’s beautifully laid out and incredibly easy to read for someone like me, who some would argue has the attention span of a rambunctious toddler.

When you buy CLU, you become part of a well-established and beyond supportive community of individuals who want a better world for others. If not already clear by the already helpful community established out of the coin itself, then certainly by its vision statement to “help [the CLUmmunity] reach their goals and thrive.”

This is only the beginning of more unbelievable things to come, and just by buying and holding CLU, you become a major part of it.

Get A CLU–Safety

Image by CluCoin

So, you just downloaded your fancy new wallet full of CLU. Maybe some others because crypto is fun and you’re thankful you found me. And after you’ve petted it, named it something super cool and fancy, then called it your precious, you’re not sure what’s next or what you should watch out for.

Not to worry. Your awesome crypto-basic-but-knows-people chick is here to break it down for you.

But just remember I’m not an accountant or a financial advisor. Your coins are your own, and you’re an independent CLU holder!

First, here are some terms that will become familiar to you now that you’re in the world of CLU, and I’ll explain how they relate to the security of your coins.

Whose wallet? Yours. This is where you can find what coins and how much of them you have. There are a few different wallets out there, most common being TrustWallet and MetaMask, but do your research to figure out which one works best for you and your situation.

(As awesome of a friend as I may be, I won’t do it for you, so don’t give me those puppy-dog eyes!)

BUT WAIT, THERES MORE! Connect your wallet to the CluCoin website to get badges and see real-time reflections. You can also swap and buy CLU! (Learn more about it in my previous blog post here)

It’s your life and your seed phrase. When you set up a wallet, you’ll be given what’s called a seed phrase or secret recovery phrase, which amounts to a specific-to-wallet set of words required if ever the wallet needs to be recovered.

This phrase should NEVER be given to anyone. It could be used to steal every last coin in your account. Meaning, if you write it down and lose it, it’s gone. Or, if you put it anywhere that can be hacked or accessed, it’d be the equivalent of giving a random stranger everything they need in order to steal all the money in your bank account.

Rude. I know. This is the biggest safety lesson you’ll learn in the crypto world. Never give this information to anyone. Legitimate people like DNP3 and staff will never ask you for it.

SCAM ALERT! If you see this face and it’s being used to get money, private information, or a seed phrase out of you, it’s not the real DNP3!

What’s that over there? It’s a rug pull. This phrase gets used a lot, especially in relation to smaller coins. Like it sounds, it’s the event of pulling the coin’s contracted liquidity, often very early on, and leaving the rest of the shareholders with what ultimately amounts to a worthless coin.

It’s not a pretty sight, and it happens far more than it should. So the most important thing to remember is always to do your due diligence when you research a coin. Research everything, from its conception to who stands behind it.

Coins are an investment of the money you’re wishing to grow, so you wouldn’t invest in a business you knew nothing about. View crypto along the same lines.

Did someone say honey? Oh, no, that’s a honey pot. I know what you’re thinking. I’m clearly very adorable and this might be a honey trap. But it’s not. I’m just adorable. Honey pots are very difficult to spot, even for seasoned crypto experts.

You put money in and see it steadily rise. So, you think to yourself, “Great! It’s legitimate!” So, you keep your money in because you want to sell at the best possible price. But when you decide to pull your money out, you realize you can’t. You’ve been HAD! Essentially, the contract for the coin only permits certain wallets to pull money from it—and that’s how it gets ya.

It’s dirty and evil, so always read the white paper (Check out CluCoin’s white paper here). If you don’t understand, because often white papers are written in confusing jargon and difficult for new crypto investors to understand, then make sure to find someone you trust (source or otherwise) to help translate.

Our CLUmmunity Discord is an amazing place to find crypto savvy, jargon-translating types who love to lend a helping hand. Many of them helped me when I was confused, lost, and just outright CLU-less!

Not your regular, everyday kind of dusting. And no, I’m not asking you to clean right now even though you and I both know you probably should. Dusting refers to a coin you didn’t buy or expect showing up in your wallet.

Typically, scammers do it to get access to your wallet information. If you don’t recognize the coin, don’t touch it. Hide it and leave it alone! It’s the easiest thing to avoid once you know what to look for.

So, what can you do? Because CLU is part of the Binance Smart Chain, there’s such a tool as BscScan, which helps with detecting red flags.

Nothing is ever foolproof in the crypto world, as with anything in the real world, but protecting yourself in whatever way possible will never be a waste.

On this note, not only has CLU’s contract been audited, and subsequently passed, but its wallets have been vested so its contract liquidity is locked for a full year to ensure rug pull an impossibility. Additionally, shareholders have been able to buy and sell at their discretion, proving, despite claims of rug pull and honey pot, CLU is neither.

Communities like the one surrounding CLU are difficult to find, especially in smaller coins. If that’s not enough to convince you (call me impressed by your necessary caution), then it’s carefully crafted white paper detailed on CLU’s website will leave you confident with buying and holding it.
