Christie’s Will Auction Original Art From Gary Vee ‘s Veefriends NFT Collection

Notorious entrepreneur and social media personality, Gary Vee, is now a full-blown artist. The legendary auction house Christie’s crowned him as so by announcing an auction of five of the original pieces from his Veefriends NFT collection. Is this new development positive for NFT mania? Is it positive for Veefriends holders? What does it say about the current state of the arts? So many questions. Related Reading | In The Mood For Auction: Wong Kar-Wai ‘s First NFT Available At Sotheby’s First of all, these are the five pieces that Christie’s will auction: Christie’s pic.twitter.com/YGxkeyZ3KE — Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee) September 14, 2021 On the Veefriends official site, the NFT collection is defined as: “VeeFriends is the name of Gary Vaynerchuk’s NFT collection. He created VeeFriends to bring to life his ambitions of building a community around his creative and business passions using NFT technology and their smart contract capabilities. By owning a VeeFriend NFT, you immediately become part of the VeeFriends community and get access to VeeCon.” So, maybe Gary Vee ’s credentials as an artist are lacking, but he’s a titan at generating value. Maybe his childlike drawings are not that aesthetically pleasing, but Gary Vee’s ability to generate community around an idea is a proven fact. And his drive to win is unmatched. Which characteristics are more important for an NFT project? What are Veefriend’s holders investing in? At the moment of writing, Open Sea informs that the floor price for a Veefriend is 18,4 ETH. According to CNN, Veefriends “amasses $70M in sales since launch in May.” ETH price chart for 09/14/2021 on Bitstamp | Source: ETH/USD on TradingView.com CNN’s First Move Announces Gary Vee/ Christie’s Auction The man himself, Gary Vee, went on CNN to announce that Veefriend’s original art is to be auctioned by the legendary Christie’s.

Because it elevates the brand. I have people who are watching right now that own the gorilla, own the tiger, own the “you’re gonna die” fly. This is my Disney. This is my Pokemon. This is my character IP based reality and I’m going to build this for the next 40 to 50 years.“ Isn’t that exactly what you want to hear if you’re a Veefriends holder? Commitment.

Not everything in the Veefriends is about childlike drawings.

The Bored Apes are part of a Yacht Club. The Gutter Cats are part of a Gang.” Related Reading | New To Bitcoin? Learn To Trade Crypto With The NewsBTC Trading Course Gary Vee understands this better than everyone. From the Veefriends site: “VeeFriends are all about utility and access, meaning each NFT will have different levels of access and activities through the smart contract attached with each investment thus giving them “utility” through metadata. Over the last 15 years, he has spent time interacting with hundreds of thousands of people — what VeeFriends will allow will be a structure around these interactions. The token is the key that unlocks you into Gary’s world.” The drawings somehow connect to the hundreds of meetings with entrepreneurs young and old that Gary Vee has had through the years. And give you access to that world. The NFT collection is an extension of Gary Vee ‘s work.

Apparently, Our Theory About The Fake Banksy NFT Was Incorrect. Here’s New Info

A couple of weeks ago, a hacker with a heart of gold sold a fake Banksy NFT for 100 ETH and then gave the money back. They advertised the auction through Banksy’s official site. If the NFT was fake, someone hacked that site. Which seemed unlikely. Also, there is the issue of the alias that the scammed NFT collector uses. Pranksy, a play on words referencing the elusive graffiti artist Banksy mixed with the word “prank.” Which is what this whole situation is.  Too many coincidences. Suspicious, we posed our theory: “Was Pranksy targeted by Banksy and his team? If Banksy wanted to create worldwide headlines and comment on the NFT boom at the same time, a notorious art collector was the missing ingredient. Pransky’s prominence in the NFT community mixed with his name makes him an ideal target.” It seemed to fit, but the case of the fake Banksy NFT never ceases to amaze.  Security Experts Warned Banksy About His Website’s Vulnerability Luckily for us, the BBC is on the case. They interviewed Sam Curry, “a professional ethical hacker from the US and founder of security consultancy Palisade.” There seem to be too many “ethical hackers” in this story, but ok… Curry told them: “I was in a security forum and multiple people were posting links to the site. I’d clicked one and immediately saw it was vulnerable, so I reached out to Banksy’s team via email as I wasn’t sure if anyone else had. “They didn’t respond over email, so I tried a few other ways to contact them including their Instagram, but never received a response.” These things happen. How many emails does Banksy’s team get? Did it pass their spam folder? Can we be sure they read it on time? The suspicious thing, though, is Mr. Curry’s description of the site’s vulnerability. It:  “allowed you to create arbitrary files on the website” and post your own pages and content. So, the flaw permitted the hackers to do exactly what they needed to do to advertise the fake Banksy NFT auction and not much more, huh? Interesting. BTC price chart on Bitbay | Source: BTC/USD on TradingView.com Banksy Isn’t Responsible For The Fake Banksy NFT, Experts Say Neither the artist’s official website nor the Pest Control website, even acknowledge the fake Banksy NFT. Something doesn’t feel right, though. The BBC felt our uneasiness and tried to put our concerns to rest. They consulted two Banksy experts and they both thought that the shoe didn’t fit. According to them, the elusive graffiti artist is not the mastermind behind the whole event. This is not a “Banksy stunt.” Professor Paul Gough, “principal and vice-chancellor of Arts University Bournemouth,” goes first: “I don’t see it as a Banksy prank. The timing for me doesn’t work right, the context doesn’t feel appropriate. He’s just done his ‘Spraycation’ stunt where he bombed 10 sites in East Anglia, and put out a video on social media about it. “That is a pretty major stunt and takes a lot of organising by a very professional crew, so I just don’t think the timings right here so soon after that.” Here’s the Spraycation video, dated August 13th, 2021: It does seem like a “major stunt.” Does that mean that the fake Banksy NFT operation is out of the question? Or did Banksy went to work immediately after finishing his spraycation? Did the elusive graffiti artist strike again in the digital realm? Second at bat is John Brandler, a Banksy collector, who provides another reason:  “Banksy’s stunts are not malicious and they don’t hurt people.” Good point, but let’s be honest, the incident didn’t really hurt Pranksy. The NFT collector got his ETH back,  was the subject of worldwide headlines, and still got to keep the fake Banksy NFT. It may be worth something, someday.  Is this the last we’re going to hear about the fake Banksy NFT? Featured Image: Screenshot of the fake Banksy NFT | Charts by TradingView

How Axie Infinity Has Become The Second Largest Fee Revenue Generator

Axie Infinity has been on an absolute tear lately. The play-to-earn platform has become the face of a new integration of crypto and gaming that holds unbelievable potential. Axie Infinity has surpassed 1M daily active users, and is generating more revenue than any protocol or platform with the lone exception of Ethereum. Yes, Axie Infinity is yielding more fee revenue than major platforms such as OpenSea, Uniswap, Bitcoin, or the Binance Smart Chain. If you weren’t already paying attention to Axies, you probably should be. Need to get up to speed on the basics? Check out our report from a couple months ago on the emergence of Axies. Axie Infinity: On Top Of The Charts A series of tweets from Coinbase Ventures’ Connor Dempsey lays out the short and sweet of the story quite well. As Dempsey aptly notes, every Axie transaction collects a priced-in fee – either in $SLP or $AXS. At the time of writing, in the past 24 hours, Axies have generated over $17MM in sales volume, leading the pack when it comes to NFTs. The next closest NFT project on the sales volume chart is Bored Ape Yacht Club, which is just under $9MM. You’re reading that right, Axies have nearly doubled the next closest comparable NFT project today. Axies, of course, also lead the 30-day and all-time charts for NFT sales volume, as the platform has eclipsed $1.7B in transactions and approached 1.5M owners. If you look at blockchain fee revenue over the long-term, Axies become even more impressive. According to Token Terminal, any long-term time horizon from the 90-day chart and longer reflects a fee generation from Axies that surpasses Ethereum. As Dempsey highlights in his tweet thread, the treasury pool from Axie fees has ballooned to nearly $600MM. Axie Infinity’s governance token, AXS, has been explosive this year as the platform crosses over 1MM active daily users. | Source: AXS-USD on TradingView.com Related Reading | New To Bitcoin? Learn To Trade Crypto With The NewsBTC Trading Course The Sky Is… Infinity? Dempsey’s tweet thread leads to a new Coinbase blog post this week centered around Axie Infinity, associated gaming guild Yield Guild Games, and more broadly, the play-to-earn model. The demand flowing into Axie Infinity has led to Axies costing an average of around $300 this month, with a minimum of 3 Axies required in order to play the game. Revenues in August nearly doubled from July. How did this happen? It started with an emergence last year in the Philippines. It’s grown so much in the country that government finance officials have reiterated that profits from play-to-earn titles should be reported as income tax. Other developing and emerging countries, particularly ones hit hard from the COVID-19 pandemic (and where local currencies may have weakened), have found a living wage modeled through Axie Infinity as well. The largest criticism around Axie comes to sustainability; will consistently rising costs to enter the market lead to unsurmountable barriers to entry? In enters Yield Guild Games, who lend out Axies for a small return. Yield Guild Games even partnered with exchange FTX to sponsor over 100 players in developing countries. The surrounding economy to support Axie Infinity is coming to life before our eyes. Axie Infinity is paving the way for the play-to-earn model, and impacting individuals lives in a very major way, at a very significant scale.

Visa Describes NFTs As Promising Means To Engage With The Fans

Visa now makes a full head plunge into the NFTs following its evaluation of the technology behind the assets. The global payment giant described NFTs as having the potential to serve as the engagement medium for fans. Visa made this description through its recent whitepaper publication. The publication suggests that Visa sees non-fungible tokens as a crucial innovation during the recent pandemic. The publication observed that strict restriction orders cause a limitation to live sports, music festivals, and entertainment. Related Reading | Former DigitalX Executive Appointed As The New Binance Australia CEO The emergence of NFTs came when fans are eager to join digital communities that portray their favorite sports teams and artists. What Will Trigger The Move For NFTs? Professional sports got the hardest blow from the pandemic. There’s an estimation of an $18 billion revenue loss across the major global leagues. Visa envisages that this further pushes for the need for revenue diversification and more focus on technology. This will bring repositioning for more business growth opportunities and gain more fans’ attention and participation. According to the report, NFTs are attractive to fans, leagues, teams, talents, and collectors. It further unveils the peculiarity of the NFTs as the basic sources of fan engagement, fresh revenue streams, and customer relationship management. However, the major utility situations of NFTs so far are art, gaming, and collectibles. The release of the whitepaper came with an announcement from Visa on the purchase of CryptoPunk 7610, its first NFT. Visa bought the NFT for $150,000, and the token has its proof of ownership stored on the Ethereum network. The collection comprises 10,000 unique NFTs. Industry sources record the sales of 2,519 CryptoPunk collectibles within the past 30 days—the sales sum amount to $467.4 million. The highest-grossing sale within the period falls on CryptoPunk 7252, sold for 1,600 ETH, worth $4.5 million. Besides the increased adoption for CryptoPunk, NFTs are also gaining popularity in other niches. There’s a report that the NFT marketplaces net sales in August will surpass $900 million. This sets the industry’s new record. The previous record, set in May, was when the net NFTs sales hit $255 million. The month of May saw the crypto markets reaching new all-time highs and then proceed to a multi-month correction experience.

David Marcus Of Facebook Indicates Plans To Support NFTs

According to David Marcus of Facebook, you must seek out ways to clients support NFTs if there is a good cryptocurrency wallet such as Novi. After completing Facebook’s exclusive crypto wallet Novi, the top-notch social media magnet, will likely support NFTs (non-fungible tokens) very soon. The co-creator and financial head of Facebook, David Marcus, launched cryptocurrency Diem. In his speech on Wednesday, he stated that Facebook is assuredly searching for realizable ways to enter into the Non-fungible-Tokens industry. Facebook is considering many different choices to launch the NFT features when the right time comes, says Marcus in an interview with Bloomberg Television. Related Reading | 37% Of U.S. Investors Decline To Liquidate Cryptocurrency Assets in Bearish Situations According to him, “with a good cryptocurrency wallet such as Novi, there is the need for you to think on how to assist clients support non-fungible-tokens,” he says. Crypto wallet Novi is currently “ready for launch,” says Marcus. However, after developing the wallet for two years now, Facebook is not in a hurry to launch it, pending the firm’s go-ahead from regulators to launch together with Diem. The Origin Of Facebook Backed Crypto-Wallet Novi Facebook started the work on this digital currency a couple of years ago, initially bearing answering Libra. On June 18th Facebook broadcasted a white paper for their long-awaited blockchain-based and cryptocurrency financial framework project. As stated by the paper, the social media magnet global stablecoin named “Libra” will function on a scalable and native blockchain. Also, it will be supported by reserve assets designed ostensibly to provide it with intrinsic value and reduce volatility fluctuations. All the assets comprise a basket of short-term government securities and bank deposits, held within Libra Reserve per every issued Libra. In addition, the governance of the current crypto will be through a Switzerland-based not-for-profit consortium – “Libra Association.” It counts Stripe, Visa, PayPal, Mastercard, Uber, Andreessen Horowitz, Coinbase, and eBay as its founding members. Meanwhile, Facebook has plans to further the association to reach at least 100 members by the estimated launching time during the first six months of 2020. Latest Novi Launch Resolution As it stands now, the social media magnet Facebook may go ahead with the Novi launching without Diem says Marcus as a fallback plan. However, for Diem to succeed, both of them are required, he added. In June 2019, Facebook broadcasted a white paper for the then-named Libra. The original plan was to stick numerous fiat currencies with this digital currency, including the US, Singapore, British pounds, Japanese yen, and the euro. Related Reading | PayPal To Facilitate UK Customers With Cryptocurrency Trading Feature However, because of the pushbacks from global regulations, Libra Association finds it difficult to the stablecoin since then.

In addition, the United States government will regulate it. Featured Image From Pixabay

Visa Issues NFT Report After Buying CryptoPunk, Cites Ethereum & Flow Blockchains

Visa is showing some bullish behavior around NFTs. As reported on at our sister network Bitcoinist today, Visa made a splash by purchasing a CryptoPunk to kick off the week. The purchase was made late last week for around 49.50 ETH – approximately $150,000. The company is showing clear optimism on the future of the NFT market. If that purchase wasn’t enough to convince you, the firm also released a new NFT report. “Crypto And Commerce” The brief report can be found as the latest white paper to feature the company’s crypto research tab on the Visa.com website. Titled “NFTs: Engaging Today’s Fans In Crypto And Commerce,” the report positions NFTs as having “vast potential in the sports and entertainment world.” While many early NFT projects are bound by a sense of community, a unique identity, or early adopter positioning, there is also no question that NFTs have massive potential in being the next wave of sports collectibles. Of course, with the recent CryptoPunk purchase, it’s clear that Visa understands that the potential goes well beyond just collectibles. Nonetheless, the report goes on to provide a fundamental layout of what NFTs are, and why collectors, fans, teams, leagues, and talent are finding them attractive.

Additionally, the analysis highlights Ethereum and Flow blockchains as pivotal players in the NFT space. The document approaches it’s close by laying out the importance of storage and access, and highlights the different types of marketplaces that can be utilized for distribution. In sports particularly, the end of the Visa document outlines several different verticals that the company sees as notable areas of potential: loyalty and gamification, utility across metaverses, ticketing, fan governance and decision-making, and fan data with pseudo-anonymity. Indeed, several of these verticals are already seeing fruitful growth (fan tokens, for example, are already empowering fans across different sports and teams to have a say in impactful decisions). The final ribbon on the report outlines some anticipated considerations and risks, including environmental impacts, fees, and licensing, legal, and regulatory considerations. The company also makes note to highlight emerging efforts in crypto, including Visa Crypto APIs, blockchain research from the firm, and their own Digital Currency Innovation Hub. As per the aforementioned Bitcoinist article, the Visa wallet data from OpenSea has been gifted a variety of NFTs. Visa of course knows that “innovations such as crypto and NFTs are likely to shape sports, entertainment, and other communities going forward.” What will be the next big purchase for the Visa wallet?

Made $234 profit with Free Signals from $50

This is the best useful app on my phone. Started trading with $50 and in 5 weeks I was up to $234 just with the free signals. I will recommend it to any new person that wants to try trading crypto. Link to Review
