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.

Something that had never happened before has just happened in what will go down in history as the first-ever insider trading case in the world of NFT.


U.S. Attorney Damian Williams in Manhattan said these charges “demonstrate the commitment of this office to stamping out insider trading – whether it occurs on the stock market or the blockchain”.


“NFTs might be new, but this type of criminal scheme is not,” added Williams.


I guess Mrs Pelosi didn’t get the memo. But that’s a different conversation so let’s just move on.


In short, a 31-year-old fomer employee was accused of buying 45 NFTs on 11 different occasions based on confidential information he wasn’t supposed to disclose and/or use. OpenSea themselves found out about it by running an internal investigation and subsequently reported him to the authorities.


If found guilty, the employee is facing up to 20 years in prison.


Proving malfeasance in a court of law is often difficult, and I believe it is going to be even more arduous in this case because of the way the market is (un)regulated.


Let’s wait and see.

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.

Can blockchain technology be used to manage sensitive data?

I occasionally freelance for a company that specialises in communications and social media and a few months ago, they asked me to transcript and translate three videos about a topic I knew nothing about: data management in the music industry.


The job was a bit boring but I learnt a lot, and I learnt that managing data, especially when it comes to intellectual property, is a complicated mess. And I immediately thought to myself, “this is what blockchain technology is designed for, actually”.


A few months later, at a crypto and NFT conference in Belgrade dubbed ‘Tomorrow Conference’, I came across the founder of a company that does exactly that: blockchain-based data management.


The company is called Inery and what they aim to do is convert data into readable form, provide backup and blockchain-based management with cross-chain capabilities as well.


The native token is called $INR, on the Tron network (based on what I could find), you can find the contract here.

And you can find more info here.


$INR is the unit of exchange to access decentralised storage of Inery, you can stake it, become a validator and participate in governance.


When non-crypto people ask about crypto and NFTs they usually get a pre-ready answer that this is a “blockchain-based” asset or currency. That’s a non-answer that I personally think it’s not very useful because you then have to explain what the Blockchain is.


So the idea of managing data using ‘blockchain technology’ means nothing unless you can explain, easily and quickly, what the blockchain can do for you.


Let me give a shot: the blockchain is based on cryptography, which is basically like math. You can either manage data relying on human beings and trusting they’ll do the right thing, or you can use blockchain technology and trust that 2+2 always equals 4. Always.

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?

First European panel in the Metaverse to take place in Belgrade, Serbia (and I’ll be there)

Belgrade is the former capital of Jugoslavia, the capital and largest city in Serbia, a global and vibrant hub. And it is also my home. I relocated here about a year ago and when I heard there would be a 3-day crypto-focused event at Belgrade Fair, on the right bank of the Sava River, I immediately knew I had to go. So I will.


This is the largest Crypto, NFT and Metaverse conference in Europe and while I’m looking forward to the 7 panels, 100 speakers and 50 keynotes, what really, really interests me is the people. I wanna know what people think. What they bought, or sold, or hodled, and why, and how, and when. And their take on the Metaverse and NFTs being used as an art form but also as a means of authenticating property and assets.


ECD’s founder Aleksandar Matanovic will be there, along with Craig Sellers, founder of Tether, Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of the Blockchain Alliance of Europe and Bruno Ver, blockchain specialist and founder of the top NFT business NIFTIFY.


I will be sharing updates in the coming days here, as well as on Bitcoinea.

Somebody just bought one of my NFTs for $5 and is now selling it for $290,000!

A couple of weeks ago I came up with an idea for an NFT collection dubbed ‘Birds of Belgrade‘ – because I like birds and I live in Belgrade. I used the crypto.com/NFT platform because it is, in my opinion, the easiest to use for beginners and one of the least expensive for buyers, I’ve set up a low floor price and sold a few so far. And then this morning, somebody bought one of my cheapest NFTs for $5 and immediately listed it for sale with a price of $290,000.


The idea behind the collection is simple, I take pictures of birds in the city of Belgrade, edit the pictures and use them to mint NFTs, I’m going to create 99 in total (so far I’ve minted 16) and hopefully, should things go well, I’ll create maybe a Part II, but that’s an idea for later.


As some of you probably know, the creator gets a 10% royalty for each resale and so I obviously hope the new owner sells it again, but I’m still curious as to why they bought it in the first place. Maybe they liked it, or maybe they thought there might be some potential in there and decided to have a go considering the low price.

3 ways we could be using NFTs in the future (that aren’t JPEGs)

Some people seem to think that NFTs are just overpriced and overcomplicated JPEGs. “Why should I pay for an image when I can just click *right button* *save* for free?”, they keep asking. They’re wrong, of course, but you can’t really blame them because people in the crypto space are doing a terrible job at explaining what an NFT actually is and what it can represents.


An NFT is essentially just a permanent line of code that can’t be altered. You can attach anything to it, including (but not limited to) digital art, which is what most people do. Anything can be made into an NFT, including songs, documents. The list is endless. NFTs guarantee permanent authenticity and ownership.


So far, we’ve basically only seen one type of NFT in the shape of the 3D/2D images that people buy and sell and trade and collect. That is indeed essentially a form of digital art but there are many things that NFTs could be used for and I thought I’d put together a quick list. Feel free to add ideas in the comments, by the way.


1. Web domains


I run my blogs about cars and crypto on WordPress, which is a phenomenal platform in my opinion, but every year since 2011 I’ve been paying a fee to renew my domain subscriptions (two in total, but at one point I had four). This is not only inconvenient and pricey, but it also leaves me exposed to third-party risks. Like, what if WordPress suddenly decided that your domain could no longer be used by you because a major global company wants it, or because of change in government regulations or internal policy? You’d be screwed.


In addition to the domains I use on WordPress I’ve minted my own personal domain on Unstoppable Domains, and I now own it forever. If anybody wants to buy it, they’re gonna have to talk to me and no one else, and I can choose not to sell it And I paid for it outright, which means that I won’t have to spend a dime on it again.


I’ve used Unstoppable Domains but other platforms are available and while it is true that these web 3.0 domains are not available and usable on most browsers it’s just a matter of time before they’re integrated.


2. Certificate of ownership



Kevin O’Leary, watch collector and businessman, has been very vocal about this in recent months and he strongly believes there’s a use case for NFTs as a certificate of authentication and ownership for rare watches. And he’s right. Imagine you want to buy a rare timepiece made by Rolex, which is by far and away the most counterfeited watch brand, and you want to make sure the watch is legit. You have to have it authenticated and that costs money and time. Imagine you could attach an NFT to a physical product you buy, whether it’s your house, or a watch, or a car, or whatever.


The NFT would give you immediate access to the information you need. It would guarantee legitimate ownership as well as authenticity of said product, saving buyers and sellers time and money.


3. Music


This is also, in essence, a type of certificate of ownership but it’s related to an industry where ownership and authenticity are a vital component of every transaction and every interaction. When you go to your favourite club, or bar, or restaurant, and you hear some songs you recognise. When you’re listening to the radio. Or spotify. When you’re at a large event and there’s music in the background.


Virtually every single time you listen to any song, ever, anywhere in the world, that recording is played under strict regulations because the owner and/or author (not always the same person or entity) has to be compensated every time that record is played, even when they’re not present. Even when you get it for free. And that puts in motion a complex sequence of events, linking an endless list of entities, some are private entities, some are government-linked and government-regulated authorities that work in the music industry as copyright holders and distributors.


NFTs could help smooth these transactions and reduce the amount of stress and trouble these companies go through to make sure everything is done right. 


Are there any other examples you can think of? Let me know in the comments below.

I sold my first NFT!

I used an app called NFTgo to mint my first ever NFT on the Polygon network, it cost me around $30, and I immediately realised I’d just made a mistake. My NFT is available on OpenSea, which is great, but it doesn’t make sense to spend money to create an NFT unless you’ve got a bankable name (ie, you’re a celebrity) or a solid idea with a serious marketing strategy.


You live and you learn, as they say, and I still wanted to create a collection so I tried Rarible/Blocto (Flow network), but for some reason it still didn’t feel like the right place, and eventually I signed up for Crypto.com/NFT.


I needed an idea and I needed to market it. The idea came first, my collection is called ‘Birds of Belgrade’. Why? Because I like birds and I live in Belgrade. I started taking pictures of birds (mostly ducks and swans) around the city and after a little bit of editing, I began uploading the pictures on crypto.com/NFT, I have a plan to create 99 unique NFTs for this collection, so far I’ve created 10 (with six more that I’ll create right after writing this) and sold one. Yay!



Crypto.com/NFT allowed me to create NFTs for free (they keep a percentage on every sale) and I believe that with the right marketing (I’ve just created an Instagram page), I may be able to sell more in the future (and they’re super cheap but like I said I’m not famous). Fingers crossed. Just wanted to share the news. Now I’m off to the pub to celebrate. And it feels good because the beer is paid for by the NFT I sold.
