I am getting very lucky…perhaps.
Turns out Blur.io was totally dominating the market against Opensea. I was looking into this late in the day so to speak as I wait for my drop on Opensea.
I read and read tonight and the headlines for months are on how Blur wont work with Opensea and visa versa. It is h&ll and more information than I need. Blur has taken all the major traders away from Opensea.
I am done for…all that work…and the money to buy is not at Opensea where I am…
Well no! Turns out Gem an aggregator bought by Opensea last year was rebranded by Opensea as…Opensea Pro…and now? All the traders have flocked back since the beginning of April to Opensea Pro.
Blur.io has drop from over 50% of the market to below 27% of the market in a few weeks. All the big boys are back at Opensea.
Pure dumb luck. I will take it.
What is making this work? At first Blur.io was offering an airdrop of tokens to those who traded on their platform. Those incentives are winding down.
Now Opensea Pro is offering the incentives. While the sun lasts I will make hay.
The continuing adventures. Elsewhere I am in some talks with artists on NFTs. The old guard do not have a hope of getting into this. There is just too much to it.
Telling my best friend in the space an old print salesman out of Santa Barbara that I went to my nephew an MIT grad in CS for help with my smart contract. He took one look at the smart contract, the language involved, the platforms I was using and bowed out. He apologized and said he did not know this stuff. I was on my own. It was rough.
It is going to work out in this coming week. It is going to work out. All of it goes live soon. I will give a summary of sorts. Thanks for tuning in.
