The most important phrase in web3

June 1, 2022

The biggest thing about web3 is OWNERSHIPYou own assets, such as NFTs, cryptocurrency and more.And you keep these assets in wallets, that can be browser based, app based, or the hardware type.Whether digital or the hardware type, each wallet has a "key", a way to entry. NO, this is not a password. In fact, if you lose your password, it's not all that bad.But what you simply CANNOT lose is your "seedphrase".What is a seedphrase?A seedphrase is a randomly generated string of non-related words in a specific order, that is generated the first time you create that wallet. These can range anywhere from 12 to 24 words.This phrase can be used to unlock your wallet, from ANYWHERE.In fact while creating your wallet, you will be prompted multiple times to keep it safe, keep it offline, and just guard it with your life.It is literally the MASTER KEY.Lost your password? You can recover it using your seedphrase.
Lost your hardware wallet? Just order a new one and recover all your crypto and assets with your seedphrase.
It's a powerful, which also means that it can be easy to exploit, and in the wrong hands it can mean all your valuables stolen.Now you know what the most important phrase is in Web3.Wanna know how to keep your seedphrase safe? You can read this article here.

5 TIPS to keep your seedphrase safe

June 2, 2022

We know how important your seedphrase is. If you don't know wth I'm talking about, go here first.Here are the 5 tips to keep your seedphrase safe!1. Write it down on a piece of paper immediately
This is at the time you are creating or setting up a new wallet. Do not wait to write it down. It will never appear again. Write it immediately. Find a piece of paper, a pen, and just do it.
AND MAKE SURE YOU WRITE IT WITH NUMBERS IN THE CORRECT ORDER.
2. Keep it OFFLINE
Don't take a photo of it.
Don't write it in your phone notes.
Don't save it in a word file or google drive.
If it's anywhere online, the chances of a hacker finding it is high.
3. Make several copies and keep all of them in safe places
It's scary. "What if I lose my paper???"
Make several copies, put them in safe places. Write them in a journal or somewhere you are less likely to lose. If you lose one copy, you can always get to another.
4. Encode it if needed
Afraid that someone may find it and download your wallet and steal your assets?
Encode it, in a way that you will understand but somebody else won't.
You can create a fake letter with the random words in order, make a song with your seedphrase, write it in your native language or a made up language. Learning all that Elvish finally put to good use, mom.
Your own little treasure hunt.5. Never give it out to anyone
Most assets are stolen when people WILLINGLY give out their seedphrase to someone pretending to be a support agent of some sort.
REMEMBER: IF SOMEONE ASKS YOU FOR YOUR SEEDPHRASE, THEY ARE 100% A SCAMMER!Seedphrases are not required for anything else other than downloading your wallet, if you lose your password, and the only person who would need that is YOU.So stay safe, degens.

NEVER trust this source for your NFT news

June 6, 2022

Imagine reading a review of a movie, from someone who hasn't watched it.Can you trust this review? I bet you can't.This is the state now of how NFT news is being reported in mainstream media. Reputable news agencies are getting this whole thing EXTREMELY wrong.The amounts of time we have lived through a web3 event and then seen it misrepresented and sometimes reported completely wrong, in the mainstream headlines, makes us cringe.Look, we get it. It's a new space. But reputed news and media agencies have a responsibility to engage with the space, do their research and then publish.The problem with such reporting is that it deters new people from exploring the new age of the internet.If your only news source about NFTs and web3 are headlines you see on google, or bits you see in global agencies, then I'm sad to inform that you are only hearing about the extreme "newsworthy" and "juicy" stuff like huge scams, huge sales, or huge pitfalls.
This includes anything from false reports on earnings by article writers that do not understand secondary sales, to proclaiming that NFTs are in fact dead. Yet again.
After all, they WANT you to click through and read, so the juicier the better.
In reality, it's very different.
We've been in Web3 and NFTs for over 15 months now. And while it may not seem that long, this is actually equivalent to 5 years of being in this space.Seeing something play out and then mis reported in the media heavily makes us cringe.So how to keep yourself informed?Get into NFTs, get yourself a twitter account, follow credible users and be a part of the space.I promise you'll be exposed to a very different landscape than what is being presented to the world.

Why your slow minting project is a blessing

June 7, 2022

When we launched the first 100 FuZZieMiNTs in July 2021, it was just the beginning of NFT generative projects.Demand was high. Projects were selling out in a day, if not minutes. And the excitement in the NFT scene was unmatched.More and more projects were dropping everyday, ETH was on the rise, and expectations of a sell out of our full collection, was only normal.Then came launch day, 9 Sep. And we geared up for our sell out. We had it all in place. A smooth website, a great smart contract, an allowlist full of people, waiting to mint, before that even became a trend. And then we waited.First 100 sales, then another 100 and then some more, and then a slow down, and then, complete standstill.I'm not going to lie. We were disappointed. We were confused. We were perplexed.We put in all efforts to continue on our project regardless of a mint out, and started delivering on our roadmap anyway.Ngl, it was hard to keep my chin up. It was hard to keep going, when the norm in the NFT scene is a mint out before projects even start to work on their roadmap.But I, am a person of faith. I am always open to guidance for my highest good.And looking back, I can now confirm that an instant sell out of fuzziemints would NOT have been favorable.Since our launch, fate has directed our project to become much more than JUST an NFT collection.We have truly discovered along with our community, what we stand for, our values, and what we want to build.A slow mint has allowed us to recognize that our project has a special niche of being a family-friendly NFT brand.A slow mint has given us a community of holders that believe in what we are building, and are ready to strap in as together we build a global brand.So if you have launched a project, and are struggling to mint it out, focus on building it out instead.Don't give up hope in yourself, your project and the people who have ALREADY invested in you.In time, your project will bloom into something you don't even know right now.In retrospect, an instant mint out of fuzziemints, might have distracted us. We might have wasted money on things that didn't align with us.Now though, we know EXACTLY where we are going, and what we are building and we couldn't be more excited.Keep your chin up. Keep building.Join us on our journey too!

Are NFTs really dead?

June 8, 2022

We saw many NFT projects releasing in late 2021 and early 2022. Demand was high, multiple10k projects were dropping every day, and most selling out, sometimes completely sold out in minutes.And then we hit NFT winter. We are still there, but it is becoming increasingly hard to sell out projects day by day. Demand is decreasing, and there is a saturation of projects. A lot of copy pasta and derivative collections.But are NFTs dead? The mainstream media kills NFTs whenever we are having a bear market.But we are still seeing successful free mint projects with VERY healthy secondary sales. We are seeing 1/1 art, photography and music NFTs flourish and we are seeing life changing sales every day.A good thing to remember here is that, in general, ALL markets go through highs and lows.Do we proclaim that gold is dead, every time the price is down? We don't.So when you hear "NFTs are flatlining" or "NFTs are dead", check out the activity page on Opensea, which is just one of many platforms, to know that is in fact not true.There is a LOT more to come when we talk about NFTs. We haven't even started.
