    Got #14 to start in the queue. So did get a pack. Got a Tyrese Maxey rookie MGLE 442/499. So not the worst but not the best. Hopefully it’s in the LeBron Challenge.

    Dapper also said they will give me some promotional packs for my account being locked for a week. No idea of which ones they will be but better than nothing.

    They can both succeed. We are in the early part of this craze and 99% will fail. TopShot has the most penetration by far if they can get over the hump but Zed looks like they can carve out a niche if they are able to simplify their entry point. Of the avatar NFT’s, the Bored Ape Yacht Club looks the best/most affordable now but I’m sure someone will come up with something cooler in the future.

    Here's previous. I actually think it will be very similar to 5/7 because ETH has dropped so much

    1. Go to Zed.Run and click start, connect Metamask. If you don't have a metamask account, make one and add the extension to your browser. Make sure you save that seed phrase in a safe place and never let anyone get it

    2. Sign in to Authenticate

    3. Hit the wallet button in the top of your browser, go down to the bottom of the sidebar to WETH (not ETH!) and click "top up"

    4. Hit "add funds"

    5. Put in money (knowing that you need to put in more than the horse you want to buy because of fees and you want to have enough money in for breeding) and click "buy now"

    6. Hit Buy Eth

    7. Enter all the information and verify. They might ask you to go to your bank account to prove the transaction is your correct account

    8. Wait 30-90 minutes and it should be in there

    Drop is Thursday, make sure you have a confirmed email by tomorrow though.

    Personally I wouldn't bother if you can't put in more than $250. That's what I'd start with. That's enough for a Z10 + fees + maybe one breeding cycle

    I think the best value is probably Z7s though so maybe $1000 for that

    If I hadn’t been crushed at the casino this past weekend I’d say fuck it. Thoughts on doing a z8?

    I have a Z8 and honestly I'm not sure which I'll pick this time. So it depends on how you define your ROI. Z8s are selling for about $350 more resale than Z9s, so it was definitely worth the investment on the front end but Z10s/Z9s have a higher percentage ROI

    If the last drop is any indication, you won't have much time to buy and Z10s will disappear in a second and Z9s won't be far behind. Just have an idea of what you want and don't be too picky

    What should I be looking for? do I just say I want a z8 and I get one at random or do I need to select a specific space horse.

    Up to you. The more you look at coat color/gender the longer it takes obviously, and the less likely you get one. I'm telling you you might have literally 8 seconds to pick a horse so know what you really care about before the drop then if a horse fits your mold buy it

    What options are there? Gender and color? Anything else? Any of it matter performance wise or is it all cosmetic?

    Type
    Z#
    Price
    Color
    Then I believe you have to open the page to see the gender (I didn't even look at this, I just bought the first one)

    Type = These are all genesis so they're all going to be that in this round
    Z# = Lower is better and closer to the "origin" of Zed. So Z1s are worth more than a car. There are different tiers that have different bloodlines. I like Z7 because it's the cheapest of the second-worst bloodline. Z8/Z9/Z10 are the worst bloodline
    Price = in USD, tied to ETH prices
    Color = aesthetic but varying rarity which changes resale value. Also more rare coats get more from breeding
    Gender = This MIGHT have an effect on racing, we don't know. But the key is breeding. If you have a male you get paid for breeding (three per month). If you have a female, you have to pay to be able to get to keep offspring (one per month). People generally believe females are about 5-10% more valuable, but I actually prefer male

    most people will not get one so if you get one, you get an automatic 5x on your investment and you should be happy

    Doing it from a bank account would lead to two more steps and a higher fee

    It was $330 last time. No clue what it'll be this time since it's tied to the value of ETH. If you put in $500 you'll probably have enough + breeding
