So what is Decentralized exchanges? DEX - 12/16/2022

 

There has long been hacking of Decentralized exchanges, as these exchanges grow and add more blockchains and have more points of attack beyond the smart contract agreements (computer apps) with whats called bridging which is moving on one blockchain the crypto coin or token to another blockchain giving another attack point.

The developers are wanting to make ease of use and better customer experience with the exchanges and the wallets they operate with https://activerain.com/blogsview/5747525/setting-up-your-metamask-and-coinbase-wallets and they are making improvements with a popular word in development interoperability (working well with each other) peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace is another term you might hear as a description for DEX.

https://activerain.com/blogsview/5748857/crypto-crypto-crypto-adding-coins-to-your-wallet-referral-link

Now what is the use of Decentralized exchanges well the word is popular in crypto worlds I previously wrote about DAO's decentralized autonomous organizations here

https://activerain.com/blogsview/5754239/what-is-a-dao

but decentralized exchanges allow you to take control of your crypto coins and not rely on a centralized organization like a coinbase that holds custody of your coins.

Dex (decentralized exchanges) allow members to add coins to be swapped for other coins and charges a process fee for the swaps so you want to look at what your being charged to swap and also check the smart contract address of the coin listings to make sure coinmarketcap.com or coingecko.com have the coin your swapping as the real blockchain it should be on thats being offered and coin matching what your picking up as you could pick up a user produced coin thats not backed by any blockchain or development team and or is named after a popular nft that doesnt have a coin issued that they try to trick you into picking up related so good to know what your buying or swapping.

Dex have become popular with more staking options, think of staking as a interest for your holdings, if you hold crypto coins you can get a return on your coins.

some of the top exchanges Uniswap https://app.uniswap.org/ https://pancakeswap.finance/  https://quickswap.exchange/ do your own research on which you would like to try, best practice is to send just a little bit to an exchange on first transactions to make sure you have all the settings correct and setup multiple wallets so you can not keep all your eggs in one basket in case of exchange hacks or downtime.

What is Web3? - 12/14/2022

 

You might of heard a lot about #web3 but have you ever wondered what it is?

 

I have read various papers and articles on the topic.

The best description I have found is this…

Web 1= information you could view and not interact with think Yahoo search engine, think GeoCities where you could create a website but not really yet formed sharing and liking and interactions. You could throw email into web 1 as well.

Web 2= think user content creation and interactions, the likes, the shares, the video creation with streaming and online chat communication in real time Twitch/Youtube are good examples.

Web 3 think QR codes https://activerain.com/blogsview/5751049/marketing-with-nfts

 

 

things relying on blockchain technology, think metaverse with the decentralization parts  https://activerain.com/blogsview/5754239/what-is-a-dao where you can interact with people and brands, companies have setup buildings in the metaverse to display their activewear wearables and avatars have been a big thing in the web3, you can share you business card as an nft, hang nfts in galleries interact inside the websites with full motion ability Facebook has rebranded to Meta as they see marketing and interactions of real world ar/vr being a part of web3 as well think quest headsets.

Magic Johnson on Jimmy Kimmel talking about nfts great point - 12/13/2022

 

Magic Johnson was on the Jimmy Kimmel show this week and made a great point for those that are listening to what he is saying. The keyword he talked about was collectible, think of NBA Topshot as a moment that you own like a trading card he said.

 

Why is this an important statement made by Magic Earvin Johsnon the SEC security exchange commission was reported by Bloomberg this week to be investigating the Bored Ape company also known as Yuga Labs one of the largest NFT projects around by all measures, cost of NFT, volume of trade etc.

I mention this briefly earlier this week in a post about the investigation https://activerain.com/blogsview/5754239/what-is-a-dao

So why this is an important statement is that if you overturn existing treatments of collectibles with regards to them being treated as a collectible and not a security then you will set a precedence to then over reach and go after art, coins, and collectible cards as well to be treated as securities.

The designation of NFTS as collectibles is key to the future of the collectors market.

I suspect if the SEC goes against Magic and deem NFTS to be non collectibles there will be Chrisities,Ebay, NBA, MLB, NFL and all major leagues, NFT marketplaces and others on line 1 with lobby money to get this over turned as quickly as possible along with all blockchain communities and DAO, we would in short order see the SEC defunded in the following year budgets and calls for government officials to reign in and put in check this out of control rule by enforcement action organization

NBA topshot digital collectibles tools to analyze your collectionc - 12/12/2022

 

I have previously written about NBA Topshot about what they are here https://activerain.com/blogsview/5663593/nft-nbatopshot-nba-top-shot 

I mention in the last week also the appearance of Magic talking about the digital collectible

https://activerain.com/blogsview/5754956/magic-johnson-on-jimmy-kimmel-talking-about-nfts-great-point 

 

Now I wanted to talk about analyzing now that I have more experience with collecting them and know where to look.

 

If you want to know about the current challenges sometimes called burning or crafting a good source to see how many have completed the challenges is the Discord for LiveToken https://discord.gg/DAVdSfaQq5  this is a non expiring link to their discord if they update name for branding or anything feel free to reach out for an updated link, Discord has a gg short link for the Discord servers as shown above for LiveToken.

*screenshot above is from my account and opening up a view to show you the NBA topshot challenges*

Crafting and burning are newish to try to help solve the balance of supply demand to make some moments more  rare the idea being you trade in moments from the previous nights game for example of top scorers with a 60k count moment along with 5 or six other games, this gives you interaction with fantasy sports of sorts to keep up with your team and players seasons and stats you could get a jump on likely top scorers and pick up their moments to use in a crafting/burning challenge for possibly someone from a favorite team or a more rare challenge moment which is only created to match the number that completed the challenge for example first game last night you burn two moments for top 2 scorers and use the other 3 showing ownership in the challenge to complete the challenge so far with less than 24 hours to go 5568 have completed the challenge.

Definitive guide post of tools for NBA Topshot digital collectibles - 12/11/2022

 

In a previous post I wrote about the Discord challenge views of seeing how many have completed a challenge for topshot before the challenge is over. Link below

There is also a link to Magic Johnson talking about the collectible at this link along with the first time I wrote last year about topshot and a quick mention of the fact there is a whole environment that is setup around tracking serial numbers of the moments and their values along with graphs of the value for each moment, per player, per series, per serial number range. Evaluate Market I would suggest starting there to know what the values are if you do open packs and wonder what they are worth. They also say how many are yet to be released in packs.

https://activerain.com/blogsview/5755587/nba-topshot-digital-collectibles-tools-to-analyze-your-collection 

 

*update to this nbatopshot.com has now integrated this into their website to show how many moments have been burned and to better filter the search for serial numbers if you are interested in buying a #1 or a jersey number or last year 75 year anniversary moment for a player etc.*

 You can check for updates on the topshot discord https://discord.gg/yXMmryHx here is a link if this doesnt work in the future feel free to reach out for a new one they have now added a small link still no logo yet to their discord.
