    Except when you click the pfp it shows the original creator, and if the collection/creator is verified.

    I can still buy fake Nike's down the road at a gas station but they aren't real. It's easy AF to spot if the Bored Ape comes from an authentic source, FWIW.

    Over in the metaheroes universe, I minted a planet a while back and got the free Jupiter dao or whatever. Wasn't there something else promised too, like a mint pass or something? I've followed all their updates but have this far been ineligible for everything they've dropped or release.

    Each DAO planet will get a Mintpass 2.0 (or something like that) that can be burned later on for a MetaHero Sidekick.

    They are still doing the planet giveaways for all of the Pixel Vault holders, and once that is over and the art is finalized they are releasing the Sidekicks.

    If the NFT market follows real card market at all, that Mac Jones is a good pickup

    Speaking on those S1 reserve packs, they minted a little over 10k of those and are just releasing 500 at a time, so I suppose no rush on trying to grab one. Rather than buy moments just to burn I think I'll just keep buying the max available S3 packs and burn the trash, then by the next (or one after) reserve drop should be much closer.

    Someone listed the holy grail Top Shot moment at a bargain. Don’t have $125K sitting around in my rainy day fund though.

    Realized that yesterday, got a Cyril Gane moment. He’s in the Main Event tonight (I know fuck all about current UFC). I think you can see it from the link if you were wondering what the moments are like. Commentary on them is much better than the homemade music Top Shot has.

    Tomorrow UFC will be public drop. Chances of issues during the drop? 95%? Seriously, pack drops has been the one major issue that Dapper still fucks up constantly for all of their projects. They should just create a queue time and if you are in a high enough position to get a pack, you pay and the pack gets air dropped later. They could also atheist a small % more of back-up queue #’s and just refund the money if the line runs out. The time I have wasted just on common drops over the past year is insane.

    23970 is a big mint count. Can’t imagine these are worth the $50 pack cost unless I’m grossly underestimating UFC fandom.

    It's frustrating that NFL and UFC are both launching at $50 base packs. Topshot been around over a year longer, much more sophisticated and still doing $9-14 packs. Hell until series 3 was released, basically every single pack they put out was guaranteed profitable

    They are setting the prices with these pack prices. I don’t think people are going to list moments for under $10. They will just need to add utility like the flash challenges later. Something like have all the winners’ moments of an upcoming UFC card and get a Connor McGregor. I think they are negative EV but probably not by too much. I’m pretty sure I’ll refrain going forward outside of my first pack unless they start having the OGs from the 90’s as moments. I’ll go all in on a Royce Gracie choke out or Dan Severn suplex.

    I hope you're right. Might also depend on how long it takes to get the marketplace open. Folks only have so much cash to throw at this stuff. Allday needs it ASAP IMO.

    The new whales are pouring $$ in daily. That’s the best perk of VIP room is to get a good idea of where they are going. They are mostly getting upset though about not getting free packs. Trying to get them to understand that this is a game and they have to learn to play it to get rewarded more.

    Because they spend $25K a week on Top Shot. Can’t say I blame them but they also are very uneducated about the rules set up. Imagine investing that type of money in a project and not thoroughly knowing what you are doing.

    I'm probably going to get one anyways bc im a sucker for any sports NFT at the moment, but UFCStrike is launching with 100,000 packs as their first public drop? 100k packs, $50 per for 3 moments? I hope they hold value but that just seems to be a money grab to me

    Fan Controlled Football is back and has 4 NFT Teams this season. You can purchase NFT tokens for the 4 teams in early February.



    Gutter Cat Gang is one of the teams along with Bored Ape Yacht Club. And as a GCG holder, I was able to get the whitelist for a free mint and 50% off up to 7 more tokens.

    The Queue is paused.

    We are investigating technical issues, to make sure everyone has a smooth experience. Our team are looking into it, and we will provide an update at 11:45am PST/14:45pm EST. The queue will be paused until at least then.

    75,000 cs to get access to VIP perks. Luckily I traded in crypto to Dapper at close to their highs last year to get enough points. But I’m definitely in the bottom 5% of fishes in there.

    Bids will be great for the Legendary/Rare tier. I wonder though if they will require Dapper Balance to make a bid of equal value.

    I really want an escrow trading feature though even if it’s a small % fee by Dapper to do. One of the main OGs is working on a loan feature by putting your moments as collateral. It will be separate from Dapper but I expect some type of relationship like Moment Ranks has with them.

    I feel like bids will help a lot with the Jersey # and #1 serial type items too where it isn't easy to find comps so folks just price to the moon and hold forever. Not gonna lie, those updates give me a lot more confidence that TS is in it for the long run and not just short term profit like so many others. They seem well thought out and like actual feedback from users.

    For additional context: we utilized a new technology to assemble & distribute the packs in an effort to provide a smoother experience to our collectors and new UFC fans. After the drop, we discovered that the new tool did not work as intended, and did not properly include the expected amount of Champion Tier Moments in the packs just sold.

    The good news is that we have solved the problem and are taking the following measures:

    1. For each pack purchased that did not contain a Champion Tier Moment, you will receive an airdrop of a randomized UFC Strike Moment by January 31st, which will be packed from a pool of Moments that will include a total of 348 Champion Tier Moments, with the rest being from our Contender Tier. This will return the odds to what was contained in the pack description at the time of sale. For each pack purchased that did contain a Champion Tier Moment, you will receive an airdrop of a randomized Contender Tier UFC Strike Moment by January 31st.
    1. As a thank you for joining our first-ever Pack drop launches, we will also be issuing a $50 Dapper Credit for each UFC Strike pack purchased to your Dapper Account. You’ll be able to use that credit for future Marketplace and Pack purchases –– consider this a head start on the next generation of UFC fandom. Credit will be delivered to your Dapper Balance by January 27th. Expect more updates to come shortly on the opening of the UFC Strike marketplace.
