Marketing with NFTS 2 you can use Opensea.io featured - 12/23/2022


I feel this is better served written into two parts of a post to make it more digestible. 

Marketing with nfts   I just finished writing this which was highlighting some of the ways I used nfts to market myself as a Realtor, I had mention the minting of your twitter tweets Mint your tweets into nfts 

The next step of using the nfts you  minted from tweets could be to feature them on your opensea.io profile, like the image above. In this case I used tweets I posted to twitter sometime ago and turned them into nfts then edited my featured page on my profile on Opensea.io you can view the page here.



You can created multiple sections on your profile to highlight what you would like, this is again tweets featured that were turned into nfts. I highlighted my My Linktree QR Code along with my Marble Card nft 1st Minted NFT Realtor Brandon Jordan

Also the Help Me Buy My New Home tweet made into nfts https://activerain.com/blogsview/5349350/help-me-buy-my-new-home-flash-briefing-skill-buyafloridavacationhome-com-hot-sheet-3-24

and gallery of youtube videos with oncyber gallery Oncyber web 3 gallery Northwest Florida Realtor 


and a tweet nft of more certifications that I have received over the years and some other tweets on various topics you can see below as well or visit my opnsea.io to give a like on the post...

Marketing with NFTS - 12/22/2022


I received a good question on a previous older post asking if I have ever tried adding nfts into marketing my listings? So I wanted to share my response as a post to outline some of the things I have done with nfts. 

There have been a few ways to use the nfts to market first of course I posted here on ActiveRain here is an nft group I started on AR NFT group   then posted about how others can make nfts from tweets Mint your tweets into nfts I used my nfts on social medias like Twitter with trying to start a #1stNFTmintedRealtor added that to my Twitter profile.



Then trying to help those that follow my blog and joined the nft group here on AR letting them know nfts are coming to Facebook and Instagram which I already posted my nfts real estate related of youtube videos I made into nfts via marble cards. Instagram nfts then I utilized the alexa skill for Help Me Buy My New Home for the real estate voice activated search videos to make nfts of those to generated something new with existing content I had created you will see a couple pictures of the help me buy my new home alexa skill marble cards on the instagram nft post. I then went on to post the nfts of #1stNFTmintedRealtor to my Facebook business page and again the Youtube area videos along with Help Me Buy My New Home video nfts and created from the TV episodes I ran before Team Sold Tv new nfts for that as well, then posted on my websites for the blog there trying to cover the bases for integration of the nfts in marketing.


Making a nft of individual properties being offered for sale I have not created since taking and completing the blockchain certification course Blockchain cert the founder of reconsortia mention that as a Security and Exchange Commission certified investment banker she viewed all nft offerings of real estate properties as securities so I havent created any listing specific ones to market. You are able to use their platform at Reconsortia to submit properties for nfts with them creating them, I dont agree with her position on that topic and wouldnt agree if the SEC determined that was their positions as well but have still decided to proceed with caution and not create listing specific ones for sale as of right now there is no case law on the books to point to showing that real estate nfts are a security in my opinion and I raised that question to the course director who didnt point to any case laws being on the books as its yet to be tested and tried.

If you were on Twitter this week you may have seen #nftday and wondered what it was exactly thats going on you can find more information here https://internationalnftday.org and their twitter account at https://twitter.com/OfficialNFTDay

The first draft ERC-721 proposal was published by Dapper Labs CTO Dete Shirley, which included the first formal usage of the term NFT."

Dapper Labs made Crypto Kitties and NBA Topshot

I encourage you to check out the site at internationlnftday #nftday to learn more if your interested in knowing more on what an NFT is.

The fed pain this week another .75 interest move up - 12/19/2022

 Original post sept 23rd, 2022

Jerome Powell made his announcement yesterday that there is more pain to come. I do find it odd that the person that said this will be transitory and gave guidance into this year still claiming this fact is still in his position. Likely still there because his removal would move the market down investors dont like uncertainty I have read thousands of times.

There are well known memes of him at the printer press printing money, many people knew supply demand factors and that this would cause inflation and were puzzled on his remarks over the last couple years. 

I will grant that this is something fed chairs havent been through with a virus like this that put panic into the financial markets, causing stocks to drop close to 40% the Dow went from just under 30,000 all the way down to under 19,200 in a very short time within a month.

There were gains on the day leading into his speech but when he spoke the market dropped when he said there will be more pain. There are many that write about his words as he has the granted powers to moved more liquidity into the market or take it away. 

Its something interesting to me that someone can be so wrong on their view of the financial markets but still have the confidence of the investor markets another puzzle I am sure will be studied for years to come. The start of this year saw the market start at just under 35,000 now down to just under the highs from 2020 under 30,000 again.

The Ethereum merge - 12/18/2022


Many have pointed out a flaw in Crypto one being the intense use of energy that is used to do blocks on the blockchain, transactions and minting of coins. 

I am not in the Bitcoin Maxi camp, I think thats not a good place to be that Bitcoin is the all powerful no matter what this technology will change the world and all bad things are byproducts. See statements on the environment by Jack Maller on comparing the Eth merge from proof of work to proof of stake where he calls the concern for the environment asinine stating that we dont use horses we use cars and planes with evolution of tech. 

https://fortune.com/crypto/2022/09/21/inside-look-behind-the-scenes-ethereum-merge/   “Executable Beacon Chain,” aka Eth2 sharding

I understand the concern to tamper proof and decentralized could be at risk in some peoples minds as this has only taken place this month on the change. I however think this had to be tried to see if crypto can form and function with validators approving transactions through encryption vs the computers having full control for the blockchain with proof of work and it will help the life of blockchain and lessen countries that ban it due to environmental concerns. I have seen stories that Bitcon has a consolidation issue as well where most of bitcoin is really centralized to a bulk of it being owned by a small number of people and companies.

What is a DAO - 12/17/2022


You can find a fair amount of articles on what a DAO is from a quick google search

Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) - Investopedia

So why make a post about it, well it may surprise you reading this but some have never heard of a DAO or understand its function or reason for existing.

I first heard of a DAO when looking at a crypto coin $whale coin what got me into Whale coin was the founder and that he had seen the vision of NBA topshot and for a few thousand dollars had a collection worth millions and the coin worked for a fantasy draft for NBA lineups with topshot moments.

They had advertised their coin to get a consensus of votes through the DAO and the reason for this was to give power over the coin and nft collection that backed the coin in a vault was the understanding of many members to give the power to the members and to grow out their community.

The details are normally buried in the whitepapers essentially think of it as your condo docs establishing how things will run. Some DAOS dont jump right to the power of control of the companies of the coins or nfts and development companies right out of the gate until they can establish they have revenues generated to be able to operate that seems responsible to me but some want fully decentralized and power to be handed to members right away.

I can understand both points and the purist of decentral wanting no centralized power as an attack point for hackers and so that there is a true community run project is the point with decentralized crypto, nfts, blockchain beginnings and what attract many to the technology. 

It was encouraging for me to see this https://cointelegraph.com/news/wyoming-legally-recognizes-first-dao-in-the-united-states  earlier this year.

You might be surprised to hear Wyoming leading with Crypto and blockchain however if you have been following the blockchain news, you may already know they issued a bank charter to Kraken which is said to be following the 

Token Safe Harbor Proposal 2.0 by 

You might hear news this week that the SEC is investigating Yuga Labs known for their Bored Apes Yacht Club NFTS and coin as has been reported today from Bloomberg but this news is not new it was first reported SEC was looking at NFTS for being securities at the start of the year and has yet to refer any case to the justice department.

From Investor.gov

"Mission. The U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has a three-part mission: Protect investors. Maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets. Facilitate capital formation."

I think its past time to say actions take years, blockchain has been in high gear since 2018 and at this point if they know they are going to make fundamental shift in the way crypto markets and nft markets operate its not fair to leave investors exposed to a change of liquidity and reserve requirements that might be enforced at anytime. This lack of clarity does nothing to maintain fair orderly and efficient markets in my opinion.

So what is Decentralized exchanges? DEX - 12/16/2022


There has long been hacking of Decentralized exchanges, as these exchanges grow and add more blockchains and have more points of attack beyond the smart contract agreements (computer apps) with whats called bridging which is moving on one blockchain the crypto coin or token to another blockchain giving another attack point.

The developers are wanting to make ease of use and better customer experience with the exchanges and the wallets they operate with https://activerain.com/blogsview/5747525/setting-up-your-metamask-and-coinbase-wallets and they are making improvements with a popular word in development interoperability (working well with each other) peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace is another term you might hear as a description for DEX.


Now what is the use of Decentralized exchanges well the word is popular in crypto worlds I previously wrote about DAO's decentralized autonomous organizations here


but decentralized exchanges allow you to take control of your crypto coins and not rely on a centralized organization like a coinbase that holds custody of your coins.

Dex (decentralized exchanges) allow members to add coins to be swapped for other coins and charges a process fee for the swaps so you want to look at what your being charged to swap and also check the smart contract address of the coin listings to make sure coinmarketcap.com or coingecko.com have the coin your swapping as the real blockchain it should be on thats being offered and coin matching what your picking up as you could pick up a user produced coin thats not backed by any blockchain or development team and or is named after a popular nft that doesnt have a coin issued that they try to trick you into picking up related so good to know what your buying or swapping.

Dex have become popular with more staking options, think of staking as a interest for your holdings, if you hold crypto coins you can get a return on your coins.

some of the top exchanges Uniswap https://app.uniswap.org/ https://pancakeswap.finance/  https://quickswap.exchange/ do your own research on which you would like to try, best practice is to send just a little bit to an exchange on first transactions to make sure you have all the settings correct and setup multiple wallets so you can not keep all your eggs in one basket in case of exchange hacks or downtime.

What is Web3? - 12/14/2022


You might of heard a lot about #web3 but have you ever wondered what it is?


I have read various papers and articles on the topic.

The best description I have found is this…

Web 1= information you could view and not interact with think Yahoo search engine, think GeoCities where you could create a website but not really yet formed sharing and liking and interactions. You could throw email into web 1 as well.

Web 2= think user content creation and interactions, the likes, the shares, the video creation with streaming and online chat communication in real time Twitch/Youtube are good examples.

Web 3 think QR codes https://activerain.com/blogsview/5751049/marketing-with-nfts



things relying on blockchain technology, think metaverse with the decentralization parts  https://activerain.com/blogsview/5754239/what-is-a-dao where you can interact with people and brands, companies have setup buildings in the metaverse to display their activewear wearables and avatars have been a big thing in the web3, you can share you business card as an nft, hang nfts in galleries interact inside the websites with full motion ability Facebook has rebranded to Meta as they see marketing and interactions of real world ar/vr being a part of web3 as well think quest headsets.
