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.
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.
“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.
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 opensea.io (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.
I’LL NEVER SELL 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.
