Welcome to e-newsletter #1

For a lot of who have no idea what that’s, or why you might be proper right here, let me outline what this text is alllll about.

Like many individuals, you have obtained most likely heard of points like NFTs, Metaverse, Crypto and Web 3.0 nonetheless haven’t dipped your toe inside the water pretty however.

Successfully, I’ve dipped my toe into a number of these – truly solely a toe! I’m not a millionaire so not going to be purchasing for any 100k NFTs any time shortly.

I’m nonetheless learning nonetheless thought of us may want to research with me.

In future newsletters, I will endure the basics of some of those, nonetheless this week is a VERY thrilling week for householders of The Matrix NFT Avatars


These NFTs had been commissioned to help publicise the discharge of the model new The Matrix Resurrections film. Based mostly on the group behind them, this shall be a multi-year problem the place the proprietor of one in all these can full “missions” to turn into ‘The One’.

What does this indicate? Who’s conscious of! ‍♂️

Nevertheless it sounded pretty thrilling and at spherical £45 to purchase it appeared worth a guess. They’d been launched on a platform often known as Niftys (niftys.com) who beforehand did one factor comparable for the latest Home Jam movie.

Niftys is a nice platform for newcomers, you needn’t mess with cryptocurrency, you could possibly probably buy with a financial institution card, plus on account of they’re teamed up with massive producers (Warner Brothers) so you’ve got some comfort realizing they’re unlikely to screw you over.

There are two drawbacks:

  1. They solely have two collections presently (The Matrix & Home Jam) they did have a set from Damien Hurst and one completely different, nonetheless these solely seem like accessible now by shopping for privately from the home homeowners.
  2. Principally a closed market – by this, I indicate people are unlikely to stumble upon your NFT and want to purchase till they go to the Niftys site. In distinction to on one factor like OpenSea* which is a bit identical to the eBay of NFT web sites (further on this in a future e-newsletter!)

*You’ll change your NFT to OpenSea nonetheless that’s a complete completely different can of worms

Shopping for

As with all NFTs, you should buy The Matrix Avatars ‘New’ or second hand, let’s start with new or the preliminary mint as a result of it is often known as.

When an NFT is initially created it’s ‘minted’, a bit like with a mannequin new bodily coin, many NFT initiatives will launch their NFTs first in a ‘Blind Subject’ format. That’s principally like a lottery, the place the NFT you get is random and every has a singular diploma of uniqueness and subsequently rarity.

It’s this rarity that often determines it’s value.

Inside the case of the Matrix avatars, the individuality comes from the utterly completely different garments and niknaks

This blind subject format is nice on account of typically, everyone pays the similar value regardless of the rarity of their NFT (this generally is a generalisation and by no means on a regular basis the case). So for individuals who’re lucky you get a extraordinarily unusual one and make a bit of money – or some large money in some circumstances.

So to purchase my avatar I wanted to attend in a site queue to be in with a chance of shopping for certainly one of many 100,000 accessible.

The launch was a nightmare, there have been fairly a number of bugs and I ended up prepared in that queue for 28 hours

Nevertheless…I purchased one! I paid my £45 and went to sleep blissful and proper right here she is, I title her Becky:

As soon as extra we’ll go further into blind packing containers and shopping for further in a future e-newsletter, let’s get once more to why that’s an thrilling week for Matix NFT holders.

Crimson Pill / Blue Pill

So on the fifth Jan householders are able to resolve whether or not or not their avatar takes a crimson pill or a blue pill.

For many who’re not accustomed to The Matrix motion pictures, Neo (Keanu Reeves), is given the number of taking a blue pill and staying contained within the Matrix simulation or taking a crimson pill and exiting the Matrix.

The avatars are given the similar different, take the blue pill and your avatar stays wanting the similar method, nonetheless is giving stats like job, wage, mundane stuff…


Take the crimson pill, go away the Matrix and your avatar turns right into a badass robot-fighting ninja!

When you choose you can’t return, and for individuals who choose the badass ninja route the rarity of your avatar changes. So might get greater, nonetheless might worsen. As quickly because the pill is taken each avatar type (crimson or blue pill) may have utterly completely different missions so you don’t miss out on the pleasurable – you merely may want a boring wanting NFT.

I really feel you can guess which route I will take

For many who’re accustomed to one of many important well-known NFT initiatives, The Bored Ape Yacht Membership, that is rather like certainly one of many apes taking the mutant serum. As quickly because the serum is taken it may’t change once more.

Sooner than/After a Bored Ape takes the serum

Can I nonetheless participate?

You optimistic can!

In the intervening time, probably the most inexpensive Matrix avatars on the secondary market are spherical $100. That you could pay using DAI* coin, so not as easy as a result of the preliminary purchase, you want a crypto pockets, to purchase some DAI, then make a proposal to the proprietor on Niftys.

*Discover: DAI is what’s often known as a stablecoin and tries to maintain a value of 1 buck so 1 DAI = 1 Buck (It’s presently at 0.74cents)

If head proper right here and have a look:
