Good news! You can now fall and land on your butt in the Metaverse with Tony Hawk’s virtual skatepark

Remember Tony Hawk, the guy that glamourised skateboarding and made it popular with 90s kids? Well, he’s now in the Metaverse. Because these days everything is.


The Sandbox, one of the most prominent Metaverse projects out there, has teamed up with Tony Hawk himself and an NFT company called Autograph to build the largest skatepark in the world. The virtual world, that is.


Autograph will create NFTs that can be unlocked as in-game features and/or you can just collect them.


This is the latest introduction in the Metaverse but it seems there’s something new to talk about on a daily basis. A healthcare company based out of the United Arab Emirates, for example, has just announced its intention to build a hospital in the Metaverse.


That, presumably, is where you can go to fix your broken [virtual] bones after attempting a double backflip at Tony Hawk’s skatepark. How convenient.

Remember the movie ‘Get Out’? It’ll be available in the Metaverse soon

Remember the award-winning, critically acclaimed movie Get Out?


It was an independent project by Jordan Peele, a young and (then) up-and-coming movie director. It was a huuuuuge hit. Everyone loved it, critics and fans alike.



Well, now there’s a Metaverse version. It seems. Monkeypaw, Jordan Peele’s production company, has officially teamed up with Meta to turn the film into a metaverse experience through Virtual Reality.


When is it coming out? We don’t know yet.


Are we looking forward to it? Meh. Big fan of Get Out and Jordan Peele, not a fan of Meta.

Uh-oh: you can acquire NFTs with the ‘buy now, pay later’ formula

There’s a company called Teller Finance that’s now allowing you to acquire NFTs with the ‘buy now, pay later’ formula. A lot of people may get in financial trouble with that. Including myself, crucially. Dammit.


I called it a ‘company’ but that’s technically incorrect because Teller is a DeFi lending protocol built on the Polygon blockchain. In crypto terms, it uses non-custodial liquidity pools that users can borrow from (or add funds to) with their bank accounts.


In non-crypto terms. You can basically ‘fuse’ your bank account with the DeFi platform. # trouble


The service, aptly called ‘Ape Now, Pay Later, allows you to buy select NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club, the Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Moonbirds, Doodles, Azuki, Cool Cats, Meebits, Adidas Originals, Murakami Flowers Seed and RTFKT-MNLTH.


A down payment is required, and it varies depending on the project. The ‘cheapest’ one is Adidas Originals, with a 25% down payment.

Would you buy an NFT from a famous brand?

hi, my name is Gucci and I’m an NFT.
hi, my name is NFT and I’m Gucci.

Gucci, a luxury fashion house that’s been around for about 200 years, has just launched a collection of NFTs. And as you’d expect, they all look very.. NFTish. With abstract and outrageous lines and colours and intriguing shapes.


Would you buy one? I wouldn’t. Maybe.


They floor price is around $4,000.

Good news! You can now turn your Reddit avatar into an NFT

A few months ago rumours that Reddit would eventually tokenize Karma points emerged but nothing happened so far. Karma points are basically a award system that can only be used internally, ed.


On the plus side, you can turn your Reddit avatar into an NFT. Because these days and anything and everything is an NFT, of course.



Hold on actually that’s not accurate. What you can do is buy a brand-new avatar that’s also an NFT. And the good news, or bad news depending on your point of view, is you can also buy them with FIAT, not necessarily with crypto.


I wish I could tell you more but unfortunately Reddit hasn’t revealed much and the programme is still in beta phase.

Exit Music Festival starts today, and of course there’s an NFT for it

Exit Festival is basically Serbia’s Tomorrowland. And I’m saying that because I’m assuming people may be more familiar with Tomorrowland than Exit.


It’s a giant music festival, taking place from July 7-10 in Novi Sad, Serbia.




It was founded in 2000 and since then, it has won a couple of major awards in the industry including the Best Major Festival (twice) and the ‘Best European Festival’ award at the UK Festival Awards in 2007.


What Exit did is they partnered up with NFT-TiX to offer NFT tickets for the festival, including VIP Gold and VIP Infinite Experience tickets.


This is one of many use cases for NFTs that are probably worth exploring a bit more, and we haven’t really done that yet.


The thing with NFTs, if we really want to encourage mainstream adoption, we have to make them appealing to a wider audience and that is difficult to do if we keep marketing them as expensive JPEGs, because that’s what most people think they are.

Somebody bought a Bugatti NFT for half a million dollars

A plethora of car brands have decided they want a piece of the NFT pie and Bugatti is one of them.


The German-owned French hypercar maker has recently sold an NFT based on the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, a one-off hypercar that the brand introduced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and is now believed to be owned by Cristiano Ronaldo.


The NFT was sold through Phillips Auction in London and it costs £378,000 ($458k) and included in the sale, the owner received a physical gold figurine made in partnership with Asprey, a UK designer.


The Bugatti NFT with Asprey's sculptures of La Voiture Noire

I guess the moral of the story is you can call Ronaldo and see if you can buy his $19 mln car, or you can make an offer for the NFT.


Sort of.

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.
