Episode #25 marked down the launch of Humble Tractors - my personal collection of 60 Unique 1:1 Photography NFTs. Each tractor comes with a claimable POAP code, created by Benny Bumbi, the creator of SnkrsWax.
Episode #26 was a tour of a multi-chain Metaverse, covering play2earn and NFT projects across WAX, Hive, Solana, Ethereum, Tezos and SmartBCH. This lead to the first ever NFT Breaking News article dedicated only to SmartBCH projects!
It was a proper muscle's flex for mint #1! High quality 12 bids, last minute drama and a winning bid of 66.6 $WAXP. SuperSloth got a bargain, paying $7.17 for the first mint of this wonderful collaboration!
I have a big and diverse bag of tokens on smartBCH, and I like them all even if the value dropped drastically in the last months. I also have a big bag of NFTs in there, some with utility, others as a vanity holding, while others are totally useless.
Gambling Apes Club was one of the 10,000 NFTs that sold out at an accelerate pace. As the name says, this apes are game on for gambling. I didn't managed to mint one, as they went bananas! However, I won a Gambling Ape in a Wojak giveaway.
After a long wait, Gambling APE NFT staking went live. The holders can stake the NFTs and earn $Banana tokens. I staked mine and I will let the $BANANA stack. Please note that This token has nothing to do with the $BANANO token!
Punk Apes Club is a new-ish NFT project that also sold out. It may be the apes, it may be the pixel punk style... but this stuff is trending. I was quicker this time and minting was still live when I check it. The minting price was only 0.02 BCH, and less than 2300 were available when I remembered about them. I wasn't so quick with the Reapers First Summoning, and missed the event.
I spent all the BCH and minted 17 NFTs. Some are simple, some are rare, but all of them are cool. A partnership with Gambling Apes Club was announced, and Punk Apes will become stakable for $BANANA.
Back in the good old days, before countless rugpuls and scams, I minted some Pixel Guys. I totally forgot about them, until I seen an article about how to stake them. I have 4 Pixel Guys and I am currently earning 0.063 NFTC per hour, with a 593 mining power.
Forgot about them again, but returned after few weeks to check. I kept earning 8.825 NFTC per week, and my first claim was nearly 90 tokens. No idea what I can do with them but free stuff is always welcome.
Layer 2 Margarita integrated Wonders.Cash, the NFT Marketplace. Users can trade NFTs and even stake them for rewards. Daiquiri Dudes, Tropical Monsters and Tropical Gulls were the initial collections with staking properties. New collections can also be minted in there, simplifying the entry on SmartBCH.
I added the Tropical Gull #329 and Tropical Gull #302 to earn extra Margarita. The little dudes have funny face, but don't mind as long as it brings profit. Farming started immediately and forgot to check it since then.
I spoke about Reapers above, and I like every single one! I minted three and I won another one at a Twitter giveaway. I missed the First Reapers Summoning but I assume that more will come.
On my journey I found World of Masks - a collection of programmatically generated 10,800 Masks NFTs. I have 25 NFTs in my portfolio and shared several through Club1BCH events. Minting is still live so worth checking https://worldofmasks.github.io/
The lower the mint, the better the NFT is ranked. From 1 to 2000 are the rare ones, with the top 14 being ultra rare. My robot is mint #877 and is kinda special to me because of the mask and body combination. Most important, with this project I like both the art and the vibrant community. Join the World of Masks Telegram channel and get free entertainment from the Masked Bot.
The SmartBCH ecosystem keeps expanding and new projects are making way for a modern community, where each member will contribute towards to evolution of Bitcoin Cash as a DeFi chain. TheBCHGang started as a gaming idea, with a goal to create 10,000 BCH gang members (NFT owners). This "David from Scotland" guy was planning some nasty stuff, but the other people involved in the project managed to take control and keep the project alive.
The initial price was 0.03 BCH and I minted the above three bad boys. Hulk face is rank #34 so I got myself and extra rare.
After the initial turmoil and the takeover, the new team offered refunds to the early minters and halved the minting price. I got my refund and minted again. This are my new BCH OGs.
Shall I talk about fat cats? This was an early project which promised some stuff that is constantly delayed. If I remember well, a special NFT was promised for every 7 fat cats minted. I have 14 in the wallet and I am expecting 2 of those special things... however I feel like they will never come.
I also minted 3 pandas at PANDA LAND, play2earn game on SmartBCH. Adventure was promised and delivered, and I am now waiting for breeding! If you ask me... I still think that this rule is stupid: if your team loses twice in a row, the three pandas can't hunt the next day. When the monster power was raised to 2200 I started winning less and less, but at least I sold enough PDA to cover my initial investment.
I have a festive rat! I won it at a Christmas meme competition and I must say that I love CryptoR.AT #10003. Don't think it has any utility but it doesn't need to have one. This is a vanity item and one of my favorite holdings.
Also, the Club1BCH smartBCH wallet has a small collection of NFTs. One Gambling Ape is currently staked and earning $BANANA, 5 LAWpunks are staked and earning $LAW since the early days, and one Queen from Thrones is just waiting for collection updates.
I am and I will always be one of those NFT enthusiasts, and I will always help out NFT artists, projects and collectors. NFTs are the future, but I promise I will not hang them on my walls in real life (maybe!)
