What the heck is Duckcoin and does it still exist?

I love Algorand. Big fan. I’m super bullish on Algorand. Mainly because of its user-friendly wallet with a built-in yelding system (wrong expression, but I wanted to use it ’cause it sounds cool), by which I mean: all you have to do to earn Algo on your Algo is leave your Algo in an Algo wallet. That’s it. Anyway, I’m bullish, and I’m also curious, so I was mindlessly taking a look around and noticed that you can actually add other assets in the Algo wallet, and one of them is Duckcoin. Quack.



Duckcoin ($Quack) operates on the Algorand blockchain, and apparently, according to a random user on Reddit (sorry, I’ll do my own research later, I was just excited), it has a max supply of 50m, 74% of which was in circulation… a month ago. So it’s gotta be more now. For some reason I can’t seem find to find the PPC. I’ll keep looking.


Anyway, Duckcoin, as it says on the website aDuckcoin.com, is a self-proclaimed meme coin for the Algorand blockchain, I’ve added it in my wallet and now I’m gonna start looking for faucets, just to get an idea. If it still exists. I can’t seem a lot of info about it, tbh.


What do you think? Have you heard of it before and/or do you own any? Let me know in the comments below. Cheers.

We have been duped, but crypto is our ticket out of poverty

Now, yeah, ‘poverty’ is a very strong word. The definition of poverty varies depending on where you are in the world. I was born and raised in a country where a $500 monthly salary would be considered low, but I am now living in a country where the same salary is more or less average. If you’re reading this from any of the Scandinavian countries, or the U.S., or Australia, with $500 you’d end up in the streets.


I’m a millennial, like the vast majority of crypto holders (49% of the total), which means, just for a start, I’ve had the opportunity (*insert irony here*) to enjoy (*insert irony here*) not one but two once-in-a-lifetime financial crisis. In 2008, when millennials were 14-28 (give or take) and again in 2020, due to C19 of course, when most Millennials are in their 30s. Lucky us, eh?


I don’t wanna bore you with the details and the data, mainly because there are a lot of YouTubers that can do it a lot better than I can, but the bottom line, millennials are statistically more in debt that any other generation, they’re statistically less likely to own the home they live in, and they have the least amount of wealth.


BUT we’ve invented (figure of speech) cryptocurrencies, and we’re strong believers in this technology because older generations shun it or disregard it, and yes, the generation that followed us, Gen Z, is catching up but some of them are simply too young to take charge of their financial situation.


I feel like we’ve been duped. We’ve inherited debts we haven’t created, became students just in time to see the price of college skyrocket, and became workers just in time to be hit by inflation and prohibitive housing pricing.


BUT we’ve got crypto. And no one can take that from us. Literally.


Drop a comment, a like or a (much-appreciated) tip if you’re a millennial.

Hennessy Cognac launches its first NFT, but you can also have the actual bottle

Hennessy Cognac, one of many brands owned by the French luxury giant LVMH, is launching a duo of unique Hennessy 8 bottles, numbered 1/250 and 250/250 and in order to properly mark the occasion, it is also releasing an NFT to go with them.



Both NFTs will be available on BlockBar on January 12, priced at 70.47 Ethereum – which is around $226k at the moment but I’m sure that’ll have changed about a million different ways between now and January 12.


The physical Hennessy 8 bottles will be sold with a custom made chest designed by artist Arik Levy, made from 25 layers of oak staves and accompanied by a copper key. The ‘package’ also includes a a box with four tasting glasses, a sculpture, a cork and a pipette, along with a personalised authentication plate.


Would you rather have the bottle of the NFT? I bet the soon-to-be buyers won’t have to make that choice.

What is the best crypto exchange, in your opinion?

I know some crypto enthusiasts/crypto geeks have a downer on exchanges, and I see why. “Not your keys, not your coins”. That’s true. It is also true that wallets are more complicated to handle and hardware wallets are even more complex. Plus, an exchange give you flexibility in case you wanna buy/sell coins faster.


Ordinarily, I’d go ahead and tell you I use this or that exchange and overtly embed referral links – not a crime, we’ve all been there – but since I’m only genuinely interested in learning more about it, I won’t. I’m just gonna ask, which specific exchange(s) do you normally use?


I use Wirex, because that’s the one I started with; Coinbase, because in my opinion it is super easy to use and user-friendly and Binance, because it’s a good compromise between an easy-to-use, no-nonsense exchange, and a platform that gives you access to other things such as staking.


What do you think?

A friend wanted to know why crypto is crashing, this was my answer

Last night, I was having a beer at a friend’s house when my whatsapp went ‘DING’ and a friend of mine who recently got into crypto asked, “why is crypto crashing, and should I get into NFTs?” – I told him we need to talk on the phone to talk about NFTs because it’s complex, but this is what I said in relation to the crash.


I told him 1, we’ve been overbuying and crypto has gone parabolic in 2021, so a correction was inevitable and then 2, Kazakhstan is on fire, literally. It is the second-largest country in the world when it comes to mining; 3, we tend to think of BTC as a hedge against inflation, and it is, but the truth is it usually follows the same patterns and trends as tech stocks and finally 4, sell-offs bring more sell-offs, people who got in late panic and sell. And ‘whales’ keep buying – if you look at the historical chart, every few years, people who bought and thought they’d be millionaires within a year panic-sell and whales and large holders buy like mad. Hundreds of millions.


I added that we’re likely looking at a few more weeks, or possibly months, of pain, and that BTC will eventually $1m, it’s inevitable, but probably not before 10-12 years.


This was my answer, what would your answer be?

Pain not over, me was wrong, me sad, me bought some more

Last night, right before I went to sleep, I wrote about bitcoin’s price trajectory suggesting that perhaps the largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap was just ‘having a break’, and I was right. It was taking a break… on its way down, dammit. I woke up this morning and my phone went ‘DING DING’, and when I clicked on the notification that made my phone go ‘DING DING’, the headline read: “can bitcoin stay above $40k?”


BTC hovered around the psychological $43,000 mark until around 4 (GMT) when it quickly fell down to $41,410, before settling down at around $41,500.


The situation in Kazakhstan is getting worse and I guess we still haven’t stopped suffering after the Fed’s documents revealed that, guess what, things are exactly as bad as we thought. Now I’m going to make myself a cup of tea and go sit there, in the corner. And buy some more. And pretend I’m unfazed.


How are you doing in these tumultuous times?

Is the pain over? Bitcoin is taking a break

Last night, bitcoin fell off a cliff and went from $46,000 to $42,500 in a matter of hours. We spent 20-odd hours in the red zone until things cooled off and now the world’s most popular cryptocurrency seems to have bottomed out at around $43,000, which is where it’s resting now. Ethereum, that’s often the case, fell down a bit more gently and is now recovering a bit more quickly.


Yearn Finance is doing pretty well, currently sitting at $35,882, meanwhile XRP and Aave are still suffering. BAT is down, Cardano is down. Everything is down. You know when you open your CoinmarketCap  or Coinbase account and it shows the ‘gainers’ and ‘losers’ of the last 24 hours? Well, everyone’s a loser today.


Late investors probably stopped panic-selling and early investors are slowly and painfully digesting the latest round of Fed’s ‘good news’. Meanwhile, the situation in Kazakhstan, which is crucial, is still not exactly rosy.


I wanted to buy the dip’s dip’s dip’s dip’s when it got $42,500 but I was out of money. Dammit.

Damn, 3 reasons why bitcoin is falling

Good morning! … but not really. Yesterday evening (GMT) bitcoin began falling substantially and we know the drill, when BTC goes down, everything else follows. The price fell pretty sharply, from $46k to $44 in less than an hour, and it began consolidating on its way down and it is currently trading at around $42,900. Honestly, I desperately want it to stop falling (duh) but I get the feeling things may get a bit worse before they get better.


One of the reasons why BTC may have crashed is the number of actively trading wallets has gone down. About a year ago we had 1.2m actively trading wallets and now we’ve got 971,000, which means there are fewer wallets that are buying and some wallets (may) have been emptied to sell and get out. On top of that, many holders are moving their BTC from cold wallets to hot wallets and/or exchanges, nothing’s happened so far but it looks like the preview of a massive sell-off. Or at least that’s what the market thinks it is.


The second reason is the Kazakh government has resigned, pretty much overnight (not literally, it didn’t happen last night) amid harsh protests, mainly due to rising prices of goods and services, especially fuel. To add fuel to the fire (sorry, pun unintended), the country’s main (you might as well call it monopolistic) internet provider, Kazakhtelecom, literally shut down the internet. Why is this relevant? That’s because Kazakhstan is the world’s second-largest bitcoin miner. The hash rate has gone down by 13.4%, again, pretty much overnight.


The third reason is that even though we tend to think of bitcoin as a hedge against inflation, it actually often follows the pattern of institutional sentiment and tech stocks. The Fed has been sharing bad news for days. First, they admitted that yes, inflation is not going away soon, then they shared a document, which made analyst say, “so is the R-word coming?”


What are you going to do? Sell and buy back again or hang in there and resist?

“Yo, we heard you like dips so we dipped your dip with more dips” – bitcoin is falling like mad

I panik (spelt with a ‘c’, I know) and cry every single time even thought I’ve seen it happen a thousand times before. I was watching Dr Death on Prime Video and mindlessly checking the 747 apps I use and *bam*, the price (BTC) dropped from $46,000-ish to $45,000-ish, so I bought more. And then again to $44,000-ish, so I bought more. And then to $43,992, so I bought more.


And now I’m pretending it’s okay. The house is not on fire. In a few minutes I’ll go back to the show (interesting, btw. Well scripted and great acting) and probably pour myself another pint of beer as I witness MADNESS happening.


How are you? What are you up to in these times of madness? Have you been buying the dip’s dip’s dip’s? And perhaps a beer? Let me know in the comments.

You can buy a physical Rolex, or a digital ‘Rodex’ and it may end up costing more

Jesus Calderon is a 29-year-old watch geek and crypto evangelist that’s making a lot of cash by creating and selling watch NFTs. His collection is called Generative Watches and it currently consists of two main lines, the Rødex Daitona and Rødex Bitmariner, obviously inspired by the Rolex Daytona and Submariner.


Hodinkee, arguably the most influential watch magazine in the world, recently interviewed Calderon and they he gets paid in “an abstracted form of currency”. They mean Ethereum, which is the currency you use on OpenSea.


It sounds crazy, and it is, but this is just the start. Not that long ago, a digital artist made a lot of noise when she released a collection of NFTs representing Hermès Birkin bags without Hermès’ permission. I’m assuming there’s going to be a lawsuit at some point and it may set an interesting precedent.


As for Calderon, he’s safe because he hasn’t used any trademarked names, so he’s basically just creating homage watches in digital form. In the interview, Calderon describes an NFT as a “digital signature”, and he says he spent months generating the algorithm on which all watches are built. Hence the name “Generative”.


A composite of Daitona NFTs

So far he’s sold 68 NFTs for around 0.2 ETH, the price of ETH varies significantly on a daily basis but Calderon says he made around $700 per watch on average.


Many images of watch NFTs

The truth is that an NFT is basically just a piece of code that can’t be altered or corrupted. For the most part, so far, we’ve seen NFTs that represent digital art but that’s just because you add a jpeg image to the piece of code. You can add anything including, and I think this is going to be important factor in the future, documents.


Kevin O’Leary (Shark Tank), an investor an avid watch collector, says he wants to use NFTs as digital documents to authenticate some of his rarest watches. The idea is that sometimes you buy a watch and you have to have it authenticated, which is costly and tiresome, whereas it would be instant and 100% secure and accurate if the authentication were made through an NFT.
