Soon enough, you’ll be able to buy NFTs on eBay

When tech juggernauts decide they want to invest in the latest trend or technology, they usually start their journey by simply buying existing companies outright.


It just makes more sense. You get the talent, the assets and the structure. And you all had to do was cut a check.


That’s what eBay has just done with KnownOrigin, the 12th largest NFT marketplace (by trading volume). David Moore, co-founder of KnownOrigin, said this partnership “will help [the company] attract a new wave of NFT creators and collectors.



At the time of writing, buying and selling NFTs on eBay is still in what most people would describe as a ‘Beta’ phase, because only a few select sellers are allowed to do that, and there are still limitations. For example, both the buyer and the seller have to reside in the same country, and NFTs can only be sold at a fixed price, no bidding allowed.


But this doesn’t really mean much. By doing this, eBay has created the proverbial snowball effect and it’s only a matter of time before you and I can list our NFTs – or get new ones – on the world’s popular auction website.

Bentley joins the Web 3.0 bandwagon with 208 Polygon-based NFTs

‘Sustainable’ is probably my least favourite word in English. I hate it because it’s meaningless. It has been used and abused for so long, in so many different contexts, that it really doesn’t mean anything anymore.


Let’s talk about cars, for example. I have nothing against electric cars, I’ve driven many different models and liked most of them, but there’s nothing ‘sustainable’ about mining the cobalt and lithium that we need to manufacture the batteries that power them.


Electricity has to be sourced. There’s nothing sustainable about that. As Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis, once pointed out: “[building eco-friendly cars] goes well beyond what comes out of the tailpipe.”


Still, whether we like it or not, legacy car brands continue to use the word ‘sustainable’, usually for marketing purposes, and that’s what Bentley has just done for their new NFT.


According to the press release, Bentley “opts for carbon-neutral Polygon Network due to sustainability focus”.


Whenever I happen upon these press releases, which I do every five seconds, I always get the feeling they were written by people who aren’t 100% sure what an NFT is. Maybe it’s just because I tend to run in the opposite direction whenever I read words like ‘ecosystem’.


Be that as it may, Polygon is unsurprisingly thrilled with this new opportunity. Ryan Wyatt, CEO at Polygon Studios, said: “Polygon is excited to expand our partnerships in the automobile industry. By embracing this novel tech, Bentley secures its position in the next iteration of the internet, [] doing so via Polygon’s carbon-neutral network.”


Limited to 208 units, the NFT will be unveiled in September 2022.

Birds of Belgrade NFT collection update

A few months ago, I suddenly became unbusy. The CEO of company I’d been with for nearly six years said “okay people, things are going great. But we gotta let you all go.”


And that was that. They went belly up. No point walking you through the details. At which I point I thought to myself, “okay, I’ve been writing about cars for so long. Now’s the time to get back into crypto.”


Which I did. Except I then had to pause again because I got a call from my editor and he asked to join him at his new media company.


And I did exactly that. Except a few months later, about a week ago, the CEO of the new company also said “okay people, you’re all doing great. But we gotta let you all go.”


Deja vu.


Anyway, because I’m bored and because I’m trying to figure out what to do next, I’ve been working on my NFT portfolio (gah what a terrible expression, I shouldn’t have used that) and I’ve been working on a new collection dubbed ‘Birds of Belgrade’.


Because I like birds and I live in Belgrade.


99 NFTs will be minted in total and I’ve just created seven more: four pigeons and three ducks.


I already sold a few (for beer money, basically) but I’m quite happy with the result so far.


I’d love for you to have a look and tell me what you think.


Cheers.


Also. Quack.

I got the cake

Here’s a string of bad ideas that I had.


First, I got into NFTs. Then I started minting my own NFTs. Then I told my ex I’m into NFTs. Then I agreed to help her with NFTs. Soldier’s rule: never volunteer for anything. Which I did. Dammit.


Anyway, she owns a pastry shop – or Pâtisserie if you’re reading this in France – and she thinks it might be a good idea to sell / gift NFTs of her cake(s) and pastries along with the actual, well, cakes and pastries.


And I agree. It’s a brilliant idea.


Still very much a work in progress, but I’ve created a page on crypto.com/NFT and minted the first NFT, a black cherry and chocolate cake.


So what does this have to do with you? Well, I’d like your input. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.

You can now wear your NFT on your wrist courtesy of TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer, part of LVHM luxury group, are diving deeper into the crypto rabbit hole with a cool feature for the Connected, the brand’s first and so far only smartwatch.


Just a couple of weeks ago, the Swiss watch manufacturer introduced a crypto payment option (through BitPay) for its U.S. website and it has now launched an upgrade for the Connected Caliber E4, allowing NFT owners to display their crypto asset on the dial.



Of course, some people will inevitably point out that you can just take a screenshot and set it up as your screensaver and… they’d be 100% correct. But that’s also beside the point.


They call it a ‘Caliber’ but that’s a term that’s normally used to talk about the movement of a watch, whereas this being a smartwatch, I reckon the term ‘software’ or even better ‘OS’ is more appropriate.


Still, whichever way you cut it, it basically means the watch integrates and supports Metamask, allowing you to display your actual NFT, not just a screenshot of it.


I actually like TAG Heuer. It’s a great brand. But I guess that’s also beside the point.


Speaking of NFTs, and I apologise in advance for the shameless plug, you can save $10 on your own NFT domain (.crypto, .nft, .x, .bitcoin, .blockchain, etc) using this link.

It’s kinda like Google, but for NFTs

Mintedgem is sort of, kind of, basically like a database for NFTs, putting different assets from different blockchains in one place. It is currently live on the Rinkeby Test Network and the website is live as well, while the official launch is expected for June 6th.


On the front page, you’ll find 1001 squares in total, and you can sort the items based on things like price (low to high and high to low), recently added, blockchain, and so and so forth.


There’s a feature that allows you to add an NFT by copy-pasting it (the URL) from various platforms (LooksRare, Solanart, and OpenSea) and you can pay to have your NFT featured on the front page, the same way you’d promote your post on Instagram, Facebook or Google.


Pricing start from $0.10 per day.


The idea was presented to me by the founder himself a little over a week ago when I attended the Tomorrow Conference in Belgrade, Serbia and I gotta admit I still don’t know what to think of it, and more to the point, I’m still not 100% I figured out how to use it.


But I see the potential value. The main issue with NFTs these days is that it is very difficult to promote yours if you don’t have a big name to spend or a marketing budget, and that’s why I believe that other similar platforms can be useful.

Tomorrow Conference Belgrade, the largest Metaverse meetup in Europe, Day 1

The Belexpocentar is located in an area of Belgrade that looks like it was developed yesterday. That’s because it more or less was. You’ll find it on the south-west side of a long and wide avenue that runs from the West Gate Tower to the river.


Around it, and on either side of it, there’s a collection of modern, aluminium- and glass-made buildings and facilities. On the opposite end of the very same avenue, a collection of brutalist residential buildings made from concrete. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, and it defines the architecture of Belgrade.



Day one is usually spent looking for an answer to the question: “who’s here?”


Tether founder Craig Sellars is here, along with Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of Blockchain Alliance Europe, along with Dusan Kovacevic, founder and CEO of Exit Festival.


Dogma, one of Belgrade’s major brewing companies, is also here. And I know this because I’m having a craft lager they specifically created for the event called ‘TMRW’.


And when I say “I’m having A craft lager”, I mean I’m having “multiple” craft lagers.


The crypto space is a multi-trillion-dollar market that started from a spark called Bitcoin in 2009 but the truth is the crypto market as we know, with a million different projects and ideas and people talking about them, is the direct result of the crypto crash of early 2018.


When Bitcoin briefly reached $20,000 before crashing over 80%, people began paying attention, even though it was for the wrong reasons and it created the foundation for a market that’s a lot more solid, and is getting bigger and more relevant.


I’m here because I live here, but other people – most of them, actually – came here precisely for this conference. Most of them had never seen Serbia before and this tells you everything you need to know about crypto.


Crypto will shape its own regulations and determine its own geography based on governments’ reaction. Slovenia, Portugal and Serbia, for example, are more relevant in the crypto world than Italy, France or even Germany because they moved faster, reacted more quickly.


The Tomorrow Conference will take place again, in Belgrade, one year from now. And that leaves me with two questions: will Terra (LUNA) still exist? And will the TMRW lager still be available?

According to market research, 72% believe technology makes the world a better place. What are your thoughts?

This year’s edition of CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is underway in Las Vegas and Bosch, the multinational engineering and tech giant, has used the occasion to publish the results of a market research the company has conducted. According to the study, 72% percent of people surveyed believe technology makes the world a better place. Would you agree?


I’m not so sure. More to the point, if we’re talking about the way we conduct business, the way we perform certain tasks and so on, then yes, technology makes the world move faster and more easily and therefore one might argue that it also makes it better. But I don’t think technology makes us better, because I think that from a social point of view, things don’t look too good. With one exception: enter crypto.


Most people get into crypto because they see it as an easy ticket out of poverty and that’s often true. But the more they dig and study and think, and the more it becomes clear that the true value of crypto is the underlying technology. Power corrupts, by definition. And so far we’ve relied on governments and banks, but with crypto, we don’t have to rely on trust or benevolence because we know that for the most part, what you can or can’t do with crypto is dictated by, well, math. And it can’t be corrupted.


Maybe I’m just looking at it with rose-tinted glasses but I do believe but certain aspects of our lives will get better with crypto because it removes the incentive to misbehave. Am I making sense? Or is it the fact that I haven’t had my coffee yet? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Somebody made Hermès NFTs without Hermès’ permission and Hermès isn’t too happy

Here’s what happened: somebody created NFTs that represent Hermès Birkin bags without Hermès explicit permission, CoinMarketCap has covered this much better than I can so I’m not gonna get too much into the details, (apart from the fact that Mason Rothschild has made around 246 ETH from the sale of these NFTs), but I do wanna talk about what I think this bit of news entails.


According to the creator, this is designed as a ‘tribute’ to the famous handbag, but when it comes intellectual property rights, there’s no such thing as a ‘tribute’, and Hermès quickly (and predictably) said “these NFTs infringe upon the intellectual property and trademark rights of the company.”


This is obviously a lawsuit waiting to happen, that’s a no brainer, but it’s going to be interesting to see what is actually gonna happen, and how, and when. There are several things at play. First of all, trademark rights and intellectual property are all about technicalities. Sometimes all you gotta do is change a tiny detail and that alone could be potentially be enough to save you in the eye of the law.


Which brings us on the second thing worth mentioning: what does the law know about NFTs? The answer is not much. If John or Jane Doe were to create Hermès bags copycat, any judge would take about five minutes to make a decision and John or Jane Doe would lose the lawsuit, and would have to pay Hermès. But this is a digital product about which the law knows very little about. I’m assuming any presiding judge is going to start by saying “yeah what the heck is an NFT anyway?”


By definition, NFTs are immutable but I think that Hermès would (will?) still win the lawsuit, and Rotschild will perhaps have to pay Hermès for each NFT they sell. Or maybe they’ll end up working together. But either way, it sets a a precedent, and I think it’s interesting to find how.

Social media era over? Enter the Metaverse

Marc Zuckerberg has been under fire coming for every direction for years, due to a variety of issues with FB’s policies. I think, and I might be wrong, that he used that pressure as the perfect excuse to do something he’d been planning for a while: rebranding Facebook.




If you’ve used Instagram, Whatsapp or Facebook, including Messenger, since the announcement, you may have noticed that there’s a new message at the bottom of the page ‘by META’.


Meanwhile, elsewhere in California, Jack Dorsey has stepped down as CEO of Twitter, and rebranded his other company – Square – into ‘Block’. And, you’ve guessed it, Block, a payment systems company, will focus on cryptocurrencies.



Social media still has a lot of potential and room for growth, but there are flaws that can no longer be ignored, or maybe even fixed. Random example? Comments. Major social platforms have been spending a lot of time figuring out to filter comments to automatically delete hateful comments, but they still can’t fix the spamming problem. The vast majority of comments on Facebook are either bots or useless copy-pasted messages. YouTube and Instagram are a bit better but the problem still persists.


Somebody recently said – I don’t remember where I read it – “in the metaverse, NFTs are stuff, and cryptocurrencies are payment methods.”


I still don’t know what I think about NFTs and the metaverse, but I do know what I think about crypto. So I guess the bottomline is, the metaverse is coming, will it also kill social networks in the process?
