Coming to a feed near you: NFTs are now scheduled to enter social media platforms!

Mushe Token

Ever since its emergence dating back as early as 1997, social media has completely revolutionised the way that we communicate, interact and engage with each other. Social networking platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok are responsible for providing people with opportunities to create businesses, portray their best works, and freely express themselves online. But the fun of social media does not end there. 

NFTs future on social media:

Imagine a world where non-fungible tokens (NFTs) existed within social media platforms. Well, you do not do it any longer. On May 9, 2022, Instagram announced that they will be testing NFTs for the first time. This announcement came from Instagram’s CEO Adam Moressi, stating that the NFTs tests will begin as early as next week. Ever since, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has also stated that Facebook will follow suit with NFT testing as well. 

Prominent social media platforms such as these will benefit significantly from having NFTs, as this would entice artists to want to use their platform because it provides another outlet where they can distribute their best works without restrictions. Not only that, but Instagram wants to introduce ‘digital collectables’, which are unique editions of virtual items. The plan is to allow users to share these collectables, where participants would be able to display public information, regarding what they have posted. For example, the post could convey the description of the NFT, providing consumers with more context. The NFT idea for Instagram stems back to the summer of last year when they commenced with examples that showcase and facilitates NFTs - an aspect that could lead to the expansion of the digital market.

The NFT Marketplace

The NFT Marketplace is one that is consistently and rapidly growing as blockchain technology is advancing. Particularly within the past few years, non-fungible tokens have virtually struck the Metaverse out of nowhere. It has transitioned from being an element that was almost in complete obscurity, to a fundamental contributor to the growth of cryptocurrencies. 

Crypto experts and financial market analysts have predicted that the NFT market will have a thriving future. According to research obtained by coinmarket.com, the NFT market is estimated to increase by 35% into a $13.6 billion industry by 2027. Key factors to pushing the market forward currently include the development of the gaming community, notable influencers publicly expressing their opinions, and the strong demand for digital goods and services. Additionally, blockchain technology could help the growth of NFTs, through their initiatives and customisation opportunities. 


NFTs in Mushe Token (XMU) 

The Mushe Token (XMU) is a decentralized financial network, that is in its first phase and currently allowing users to register for their presale. It has the intention of migrating to Stellar’s open networks, allowing users to have low transaction costs and inclusion. In their litepaper, Mushe states how they plan to join “the fastest-growing ecosystem for NFTs and play to earn gaming”. If the Mushe Token (XMU) follows suit with its claim, incorporating NFTs and P2E in games they're involved in, could allow users to passively exchange and gain financially - giving people a firm incentive to get involved with this cryptocurrency. The blockchain's official launch is set to be on Independence Day (July 4), an intriguing gift not just for Americans, but for everyone to discover.

Can FIREPIN Token (FRPN) Repeat Solana’s (SOL) STEPN (GMT) Meteoric 34000% Rise?

Firepin FRPN

Since its market debut in March, STEPN (GMT), a so-called "move-to-earn" token based on the Solana (SOL) blockchain, has exploded.

The price of GMT jumped from $0.01 on March 9th to $3.45 on April 19th — a 34,000% increase in just 41 days, according to data from Binance. Its meteoric rise was fueled by the excitement surrounding DeFi projects that reward users with tokens for remaining active.

STEPN (GMT) could attain this year’s record for most profitable token. Could FIREPIN Token (FRPN), which is about to enter its third and final stage of presale, expect to reach such highs after launch?

STEPN (GMT)

STEPN (GMT) has grown at a breakneck speed since its launch in December 2021, going from 1,500 daily active users in January 2022 to 100,000 in March 2022.

With a market cap of $1,901,404,879, STEPN (GMT) announced in a blog post on 1st April 2022 that sales of its sneakers on its NFT marketplace and royalty fees generated a profit of 198,635.62 SOL ($26,815,807.35) in Q1 2022.

Furthermore, the trading volume for GMT at the time of writing was $1,371,155,006. This was a 132% increase from the company's initial trading volume of $591.97 million on March 9th.

Despite these strong performances, a look at the total number of NFT trades for GMT raises some concerns. A total of 57,571 Trades Counts were recorded on March 9th. However, as of this writing, the token's total NFT Trades Count stood at 17,461. This represents a 70% decrease in the value of the coin's total NFT Trades Count so far.

In addition, the total volume of NFTs traded has decreased significantly. On March 9, a trade volume of 52.74 million was recorded; at the time of publication, it was 33.17 million.

Many people believe that NFT games are unsustainable because players are only interested in cashing out their winnings. Similarly, the current STEPN hype resembles Axie Infinity's (AXS) buzz in 2021 before the token's price dropped towards the end of the year.


FIREPIN Token (FRPN)



FIREPIN Token (FRPN) is in presale, giving early investors the opportunity to buy the token at its lowest possible price. Moreover, it raises the price of the token before launch, thereby giving it the chance to enter the market with a fairly high value as well as maximising investors’ profits.

FIREPIN Token (FRPN) is rumoured to follow the vast success of STEPN (GMT). The comparison seems surprising until you take a look at FIREPIN Token’s (FRPN) presale statistics. 

FRPN was initially worth $0.000067 at the beginning of its presale in February. The token has since surged to 0.0023, meaning its price has more than quadrupled in a mere 2 months. 

Furthermore, early FIREPIN Token (FRPN) investors' portfolios have seen a nearly 4000% increase in value. Many believe that an additional 1000% increase will be obtainable before the presale ends in late May. 

The direction of FIREPIN Token (FRPN) will be in the hands of holders who will participate in majority decisions that will decide the project's plan as a community-led DAO. 

FIREPIN Token (FRPN) will use this as their virtual world investment by allocating a percentage of each FRPN transaction towards its treasury fund.

FIREPIN's (FRPN) plans to invest in the Metaverse and NFT industries, as well as the potential of P2E games, demonstrate how seriously the virtual world industry is taken by the company and how much demand there is for it globally.

FIREPIN Token (FRPN) also intends to support multi-chain integration, allowing users to use up to five different blockchains for their transactions at a fraction of the gas fee charged by Ethereum (ETH).

The Top 3 P2E Crypto Games in 2022 - Decentraland (MANA), The Sandbox (SAND) & AUTOMISH Coin (ATI)...

The Top 3 P2E Crypto Games in 2022 - Decentraland (MANA), The Sandbox (SAND) & Autometa Coin (ATA)


The combination of blockchain technology and NFTs has enabled game developers to use these exciting tools to construct virtual realities. Consequently, 2022 is expected to become a milestone for NFT gaming, with a slew of intriguing projects slated for release in the coming months. 


Decentraland (MANA) and The Sandbox (SAND) are well-known names in the industry, having pleased their 2021 investors with colossal ROIs last year. Despite some concerns that the two have already peaked, analysts are predicting that 2022 will see the immersive metaverse games attain new highs, in light of new technology being implemented. 


Autometa Coin (ATA) has recently entered its first presale stage, and is anticipated by many in the crypto community to revolutionise NFT gaming due to exhilarating new features it plans to introduce, which will undoubtedly inspire a range of metaverse projects. 


This article will delve into Decentraland (MANA), The Sandbox (SAND) and Automish Coin (ATI) as among the three best NFT games this year, highlighting why they've received so much attention and discussing their long-term value potential.  


Decentraland (MANA)



Decentraland (MANA) is one NFT project that has gained a lot of traction. Decentraland (MANA), which first launched in February 2020, is one of the most iconic examples of the metaverse. Decentraland's (MANA) popularity has soared since then, thanks in large part to the innovative way in which developers have incorporated NFTs into the game.


NFTs are used to structure virtual land, clothing, and other in-game items, allowing Decentraland's (MANA) players to build a self-sustaining marketplace powered by MANA, its transactional token. Players can also generate revenue through their virtual property, with in-game advertising being one of the most popular methods. Finally, the interactive nature of the Decentraland (MANA) metaverse simplifies players’ process of forming friendships and connecting across social media platforms. 

The Sandbox (SAND)



The Sandbox (SAND) is an Ethereum (ETH) based metaverse in which players can make in-game items which are tokenized into NFTs and then can be sold on The Sandbox (SAND) marketplace. The native token of the metaverse, SAND, is used to facilitate all transactions and can be purchased on a variety of cryptocurrency exchanges.


The Sandbox (SAND) world, like Minecraft's, is made possible by 'voxels,' which provide limitless potential when creating items. Players can create anything they want and integrate it into The Sandbox's (SAND) metaverse using the 'VoxEdit' tool. This process cleverly allows users to convert these items into NFTs and sell them, incentivizing creative community members to build innovative virtual objects. 

Automish Coin (ATI)


Automish Coin (ATI) has been praised for the multifaceted range of features it will integrate. Key features of the coin will include a play to earn (P2E) fantasy game, an NFT marketplace and many different opportunities to earn rewards, the easiest of which entails just holding ATA. Additionally, Autometa (ATA) is striving to become a fully community-driven DAO, to ensure total decentralisation. 


The Autometa-developed yield-bearing NFTs will be used in the ATAVERSE. These will have their own crypto-identity, qualities, and characteristics, as well as a unique character on the blockchain. Each NFT will be named after you, architecturally designed, and painstakingly crafted for you to display in the virtual world. No one can ever copy or reproduce it once it's been created, making it extremely rare once it's been released on the open market.


Automish Coin (ATI) aims to have cutting-edge blockchain gaming features as well as future-proof upgradeable NFTs. According to the White Paper, these features will consist of upgradable properties - the appearance, characteristics, and behaviour of your NFT can all be changed depending on what you choose to upgrade it with and how much money you put into it over time. Your NFT becomes more unique on the blockchain as it accumulates more resources. 


Moreover, upgradable elements will be included, allowing you to add new abilities like flight or invisibility, for example. Properties can also be upgraded on a per-user basis, which means that an upgrade doesn’t always mean that you have to wait until you reach a certain level to access these features, but that they can pay a one-time fee to add a special trait right away. 

Verdict


This article has taken a close look at the best NFT games for 2022, and it's clear why they're getting so much attention.


With its innovative new features coming to the metaverse, our top pick, Automish Coin (ATI) appears poised to revolutionise the P2E gaming space.


Players of Automish Coin (ATI)can earn rewards as easily as just holding the token. No wonder Autometa (ATA) has seen so much early success in its presale, with the price of ATA expected to soar before launch.

Retro Style NFTs That Will Take You Back In Time - Nostalgic Fun That Could Even Improve Your Mental Health!


Retrokudz NFT cryptocurrency news

PHOENIX, ARIZONA - January 17th 2022: RetroKydz brings you an interesting opportunity to re-live your childhood. It offers to recreate the peaceful experience of your infant years that were marked by freedom from all sorts of worries, grudges, and competition. It is rolling out 2000 exclusive, mintable, retro style 3D pixelated NFTs in the market that will enable the holders to become part of a mental health community on the blockchain technology.

These beautifully designed NFTs seem to be very promising because the fast-paced, competitive, and busy lifestyle of the modern era has deprived many of mental peace and genuine friendships. In fact, results from the 2014 Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey highlighted that 1 in 6 adults experience a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression every week, and 1 in 5 adults have considered taking their own life at some point. The irony is that many such cases go undiagnosed and amongst those identified, many hesitate to seek professional help due to the stigma attached.

Under such circumstances, the RetroKydz NFTs will serve as badges that can be worn with pride because they do not signify that the holders have a problem, rather serve as a representation of the fact that the NFT owners stand for equality, peace, love, harmony, mental health, and above all, humanity. These NFTs will help develop virtual friendships and provide the members with a platform where they can vent out their emotions. In simple terms it can be said that they will serve as tokens of membership to a community of 2000 where people will have a chance to talk about their specific mental health issues and also their daily life struggles that leave them depressed or disturbed. By sharing their problems, the members will be able to seek help and advice from each other. Although connectivity appears to be a major challenge, RetroKydz has this sorted out as well. It plans to keep the members connected via regular Zoom calls so that healthy relations and bonds can be developed without any geographical barriers or mobility issues.

The utilities of these NFTs are numerous as the holders will be able to get early access to the upcoming projects and special offers. The best part is that the members will also have access to mental health professionals’ expert advice. These professionals will be making group calls on Discord from time to time to talk about important matters and provide counselling with regards to any significant event - if needed. Besides all this, the community members will have access to a dedicated channel where motivational quotes and encouraging words will be shared to boost up morale.

Given their usefulness, it is very likely that these NFTs will sell out soon so hurry up and make a purchase before it is too late. Each NFT costs 50 ADA and can be purchased on the Cardano blockchain. The process to go about it is pretty simple: Minting has already begun; you just need to send ADA equivalent to the number of NFTs you want to purchase on the address provided at Retrokydz’ website. In order to give everyone a fair chance, RetroKydz has kept a maximum purchase limit of 20 NFTs per transaction.

One thing to remember when making the transaction is that the ADA should be sent through a wallet that supports Cardano NFTs or else you will not receive your NFT token. In case the NFTs are sold out by the time your payment is received, or you accidentally end up paying more or less than the exact amount, your ADA will be returned so you can make the transaction without worrying about any loss or mishap.

Quentin Tarantino Creates 'Pulp Fiction' NFT's That Contain 'Secret' Never Before Seen Audio and Video...

 

Quentin Tarantino Pulp Fiction NFT

The NFTs contain "secrets" of the film that only Tarantino knows, which he has placed in the collectibles. According to the website of the non-fungible tokens, there are seven pieces in total that include scenes, fragments of the original scripts of the film, and audios with comments from Tarantino himself.

"I'm thrilled to be able to share these exclusive 'Pulp Fiction' scenes with fans." Secret Network and Secret NFTs open up a whole new world of possibilities for connecting fans and artists, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it." Tarantino says.

These multimedia files are built on the 'Secret Network' blockchain, which bills itself as "the first blockchain with data privacy by default." The platform says they prioritize privacy and grant access controls to NFT owners. Critics said they do this via being largely centralized.

The NFTs will be auctioned off on OpenSea, an Ethereum-powered collectibles market. A few days ago, Secret Network and the marketplace formed an alliance to commercialize the non-fungible tokens.

“Pulp Fiction” put Tarantino’s on the A-list of directors, made Samuel L. Jackson a star, and revived John Travolta's career.   It also was a turning point for the small 'Miramax' production company to become a major Hollywood player - the company was co-founded by brothers Bob Weinstein, and now-convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.

The launch date of the non-fungible tokens was not disclosed.

Announcing the Launch of TestaMint: The Invite-Only, Environmentally-Friendly NFT Artist Collective...

TestaMint disrupts the digital art World with its brilliant NFT debut by artists, Jim TAZ Evans, Kelly RISK Graval, Dave Navarro, and Billy Morrison

Los Angeles, Calif. (MAY 12, 2021) – Today, TestaMint, an invite-only NFT artist collective, marketplace, and platform for artists by artists has announced its launch. As the digital art world continues to flourish, TestaMint is creating a whole new dimension in the space by launching one of the first-ever NFT artist collectives that gives world-renowned talent the chance to showcase their creativity while taking their artwork to new depths.  

Powered by patent-pending technology, TestaMint is an exclusive invite-only network focused on bringing integrity and emotional connection back into the digital world. Offering a streamlined and user-friendly marketplace where artists are invited to effectively buy, sell, and promote their art, the turn-key platform gives artists access to unique tools and templates that allow them to incorporate unlockable experiences and digital layers into their original pieces. Unlike other major NFT companies, TestaMint is written on top of EOS, an environmentally responsible blockchain, making it 66,000 times more eco-friendly than Bitcoin and 17,000 times more eco-friendly than Ethereum."I look forward to rewriting the NFT narrative by injecting eco-friendly, creative, and innovative strategies into an industry that has limitless growth potential." says Frank Agnone, CEO of TestaMint.

TestaMint was created by artists and exists for artists and the company is on a mission to prioritize the creative control of creators, facilitate high-quality releases, and maintain the eco-friendliness on which their platform operates. NFTs have generated over $1 billion in 2021 alone, TestaMint is dedicated to giving the power back to the artists and helping them push the boundaries of NFT innovation and capabilities. NFTs will resuscitate not only the media sector but also serve as a medium in which all industries will modernize, says Jaron Hinds President and CTO of TestaMint.

TestaMint will make its entry into the NFT world this Wednesday, May 12th with the "Godfather" of the West Coast Graffiti movement, Kelly “RISK” Graval, and Billy Idol guitarist, Billy Morrison, Jane's Addiction guitarist, Dave Navarro, and Jim ‘TAZ’ Evans. The initial NFT offering will include Future Jane. Future Jane is the result of a collaboration between Dave Navarro and Jim “TAZ” Evans, that began in 1997 when TAZ was commissioned to create a show poster for Jane’s Addiction’s concert at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. Attempting to come up with a new angle on the metaphorical Jane, TAZ chose a futuristic design and featured Jane as a melancholy cyborg, restrained by techno-bondage information feeder tubes, and leashed by BDSM straps. In 2016, TAZ was commissioned to create a show poster for a Queens Of The Stone Age show at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. Since the original Jane had not been finished to his liking because of deadline constraints, Jane 2.0 was created. In late 2020, TAZ and Dave decided to collaborate after being reintroduced by legendary graffiti art dealer and curator Eddie Dolandson, founder of GuerillaOne and member of The Seventh Letter and chose to use the Jane image as the basis of it. The birth of NFT art took that collaboration to another level, as the two artists began exchanging ideas about how to tell a bigger story. Future Jane represents the result of that collaboration. For the entire story about Future Jane NFT, click here. 

Kelly "RISK" Graval's NFT incorporates some of his most important imagery.  The centerpiece of the NFT is Risk's "WTF Icon".  As one of LA's most prolific graffiti artists, the LA Police were on the hunt for Graval because of his graffiti tag name “RISK”, so instead, Graval switched to his now-famous "WFT Icon".  The "Icon" was his interpretation of Elvis Presley's "TCB Symbol" (taking care of business). Risk's "Icon" is made up of a stylized Lightning Bolt, Question Mark and Exclamation Point.   The NFT incorporates an actual Risk "WTF Icon" piece made out of his "Metallic Tissue" panels. The panel is made of recycled spray cans (from Risk's graffiti and studio work), license plates (which are a metaphor for humanity) like people, license plates come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and come from many different places. The NFT also incorporates Risk's now-famous "Monarch Butterfly" imagery.  The Butterflies signify Risk going from Anarchy, living in Venice beach, being into the early LA punk rock scene, and illegal graffiti art all over the world. He now lives with his four daughters in Southern California and is in a "Celebratory Stage of Life" and ignited his latest series of "Anarch to Monarch" artwork. The NFT was produced by taking the actual "WTF Icon" piece to the beach in Malibu, placing it on the beach so the waves could wash over the piece.  Each wave activates the Butterflies and also Risk's signature color wash.  Risk's "Color Wash" is used as a background on all his murals and studio work. The color palette used in all his murals and paintings is based on the "California Colors" line of spray paint produced by Krylon Spray paint in the late 1980's and early 1990's. Very few graffiti artists used the "California Color" palette because they did not think it was suitable for graffiti. Risk turned the bright fluorescent color palette into one of the most recognized graffiti styles in the world. 

 Billy Morrison’s NFT art was inspired by a strong and imposing male figure such as Darth Vadar, and suggesting that underneath all of that posturing is a sensual, fragile human being, that is struggling with his or her sexuality. “Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we ‘embrace our inner selves’ and encourage those around us to come from a place of compassion and love, says Morrison. “This piece stems from observing the racial and sexual unrest that pervades our society, and my desire to spread the message that ‘we are all the same, no matter what color or sexual orientation’ - and more importantly to inspire people to accept and embrace who they really are without fear of reprisal.” In addition, Morrison took the opportunity with the NFT Technology to add an exclusive track, recorded in his studio specifically to coincide with the image and shot video content in his studio and with some of his personal art collection to add unlocks to some of the editions being released.
