Ben Armstrong, a crypto analyst and influencer, spoke about three non-fungible tokens(NFTs) on March 19, claiming that they could help you become a millionaire.
In a video posted to his popular YouTube channel “BitBoy Crypto,” Armstrong covered his top three picks.
1. Ethernity Chain ($ERN)
The Ethernity Chain project team’s introduction:
Ethernity Chain is a community-driven network that creates limited edition authenticated NFTs and trading cards featuring your favorite artists and celebrities. It was designed on the Ethereum Network with the goal of building the world’s largest A-NFT library, rewarding its developers, and raising funds for charitable causes in perpetuity. It’s a win-win scenario for everyone involved, from NFT collectors to charity organisations that support some of society’s most unfortunate members.”
Its DEFI applications offer ERN token holders the ability to farm rare A-NFTs, stake, farm, and vote on proposals that will modify the Ethernity Chain ecosystem. Unique NFTs can be obtained through auction sales or ERN farming, and prizes can be redeemed for collectibles. Our charitable members receive a share of the sales proceeds.
Armstrong’s take on it:
“This is the only one of today’s projects that I am personally invested in, but I believe this one has the absolute most potential long-term and short-term… Ethernity just launched in the last week… If Ethernity were to see a similar pump to Chiliz and ECOMI, which I think is possible, we could be looking at a 40X… Ethernity is going to be huge… There are some big names behind Ethernity… The Winklevoss twins are officially backing Ethernity.“
2. ECOMI ($OMI)
The ECOMI project team’s intro:
“ECOMI is a Singapore-based technology company that aims to pave the way in the evolving digital collectibles market, as well as digital currency security. Via the VE-VE app, ECOMI provides a one-stop shop for digital collectibles, taking popular culture and entertainment to twenty-first century. Digital collectibles, according to Ecomi, are a new financial asset that provides intellectual property owners with new revenue sources in the digital landscape.“
Armstrong’s take on it:
“ECOMI has done a mind-blowing 46,000% return in the last year… ECOMI already has an active app called VeVe. It is a digital collectibles app. It already is a working product and according to Bitcoin.com, it has a ton of active partners… The ECOMI token, OMI, would be the currency of the VeVe app to buy these digital collectibles… Be careful with your entry, but I do believe ECOMI has more room to run.“
3. Chiliz ($CHZ)
The Chiliz project team’s intro:
“Chiliz is a currency choice for mainstream consumers who want to purchase blockchain-backed goods and services. We want to enhance daily experiences, such as fan participation in entertainment and alternative payment options for traditional goods. Chiliz offers blockchain-based resources to sports and entertainment companies to help them engage and monetize their target audience.“
Armstrong’s take on it:
“This amazing NFT platform has taken off, which is both its greatest strength and one of its greatest limitations right now… In the last year, it has been 128Xed… However, I would advise you against investing in this at this time… This project will be enormous, and it will grow much larger, but it will experience a significant setback before reaching its full potential.“
To Be Sold for $70 Million, with Proceeds Used to Support NFT Purchases at MoMA
The auction of works by Renoir, Picasso, Bacon, and Rousseau will help the museum increase its online presence and maybe buy NFTs.
This fall, the William S. Paley Foundation will hold an auction featuring works of art valued at at least $70 million in order to increase the digital presence of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and possibly acquire the institution’s first NFTs.
Since the passing of the co-founder of CBS in 1990, William S. Paley’s collection has been maintained by MoMA. Sotheby’s has been hired by Paley’s namesake organization, which includes endowment funds for museums and educational and cultural activities, to auction off 29 of the 81 items in the MoMA collection.
The sale proceeds will go toward growing the museum’s online presence. MoMA’s director Glenn Lowry stated in the Wall Street Journal that the museum had suggested several potential uses for the funds.
MoMA may start its streaming service, organize online exhibitions and video discussions with artists, or work with colleges and training organizations to offer online courses. More importantly for cryptocurrency enthusiasts, MoMA might also buy its first NFTs.
According to Lowry, the museum has a dedicated team monitoring the digital art scene to hunt for suitable artists to collaborate with or buy from.
In the interview, he added of NFTs, “We’re aware that we lend an imprimatur when we acquire things, but that doesn’t mean we should shun the domain.
What’s on offer?
The William S. Paley Foundation and MoMA have an agreement that gives MoMA the final say in how the collection is used. Other humanitarian endeavors championed by the late Paley will receive a tiny share of the proceeds from the autumn auction.
Most of the collection’s most famous works, such as Picasso’s “Boy Leading a Horse” from 1905–06 and Matisse’s “Woman with a Veil,” are not for sale. Rousseau and a Renoir, on the other hand, will be sold at auction, according to Lowry.
According to Sotheby’s, Francis Bacon’s “Three Studies for a Portrait of Henrietta Moraes” will be auctioned for at least $35 million in London in October, and Pablo Picasso’s “Guitar on a Table” will be sold for at least $20 million in New York this November.
It’s anticipated that the collection would bring in between $70 and $100 million.
Despite not yet owning a tokenized work of art on the blockchain, MoMA has already contributed to the development of NFTs. The MoMA gave all of its collection’s information in November of last year to the Unsupervised exhibition and NFT project by AI artist Refik Anadol.
How NFT Projects Are Setting Up For Ethereum’s Network Shift to Stay Ahead of the Merge?
This week is finally predicted to see the occurrence of one of the most important occurrences in the history of cryptocurrencies.
The blockchain network will completely switch from its existing proof-of-work consensus process to the proof-of-stake model thanks to Ethereum’s significant software upgrade, known as The Merge. Ethereum is anticipated to carry on as usual, except that PoS authentication of cryptocurrency transactions will now be used instead of PoW.
Ethereum.org states that “The Merge signifies the combining of Ethereum’s new proof-of-stake consensus layer, the Beacon Chain, with its existing execution layer (the Mainnet).” It does away with the necessity for energy-intensive mining and instead uses ETH stakes to safeguard the network.
Sustainability, scalability, and security are the three key areas of concern that The Merge seeks to solve. Researchers at the Ethereum Foundation claim that the new architecture not only paves the way for future scaling improvements like sharding but also significantly cuts Ethereum’s energy consumption by more than 99% because miners won’t have a financial incentive to run computers constantly.
Further modifications to the NFT market are anticipated due to the switch from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. The Merge may improve the tokenomics of the entire market, broaden the range of cryptocurrencies it supports, and potentially raise the price of NFT.
The bulk of NFTs are a part of the Ethereum blockchain, and many people are enthusiastic about the switchover because it is anticipated to use less energy, allowing users to mint and sell NFTs in a more environmentally friendly manner. However, other users worry that, as with every substantial technological change, there may be a chance for fraud, hacking, volatility, and confusion.
Do you have safe NFTs?
Due to duplicate NFTs existing as a result of the ETH proof-of-work chain and other future forks, it may be unclear which assets are “official” or “real.”
There is a chance that there will be two different types of NFTs when the merge is finished because Ethereum is projected to have at least one proof of work (PoW) fork that will continue to exist. Thus, NFT owners can experience a problem known as a “replay attack.” When a transaction is finished on one blockchain and then repeated on another, this occurs.
OpenSea, the largest NFT market, and well-known companies like Yuga Labs, the company behind the Bored Ape Yacht Club, have officially said that they will not accept the identical NFTs that are present on these chains. In a similar vein, Proof, the startup that is in charge of the Moonbirds NFT project, has stated that it will neither acknowledge or support any forks that are made after a merging.
The Merge will quickly establish itself as the dividing point between PoW-era and PoS-era NFTs. One of the first projects to launch during Ethereum’s new phase will be Supercute World’s SELFi3STM NFT collection. The project will be powered by Web3 developer platform, Alchemy, and will showcase the company’s new full stack NFT development capabilities.
Nikil Viswanathan, cofounder and CEO of Alchemy, stated, “Our objective has always been to bring web3 to a billion people, and we see NFTs being a crucial driver of that adoption.” We’ll keep investing in our full-stack NFT development offering and supporting innovative, exciting new projects like Supercute World to help reach that aim.
The first completely inclusive NFT initiative is SELFi3STM by Supercute WorldTM, which offers male, female, and gender-neutral variants so users can develop and represent the greatest versions of themselves online. Without ever changing the rarity score, holders will be able to select the best version of themselves.
The upcoming collection of 7,777 SELFi3S from Supercute World is anticipated to debut in October. Visit the website and follow the project on Twitter to keep up with developments and learn more about Supercute WorldTM.
‘LG Art Labs,’ a new NFT marketplace, is introduced by LG Electronics
The second major South Korean television manufacturer to do so this year is the electronics giant, which just opened its own NFT marketplace.
The “LG Art Labs” NFT marketplace has just been released by LG, a South Korean electronics business, and is now accessible to all US LG television owners running webOS 5.0.
From the comfort of their homes, users may purchase, sell, and trade non-fungible tokens (NFTs) through the marketplace, which is available from the LG home screen.
NFTs are non-fungible tokenized blockchain representations of non-fungible assets, making them distinct and irreplaceable. Similar to how antiques and works of art are frequently non-fungible in the real world, NFTs on a blockchain ledger typically represent digital versions of these items.
Wallypto, LG’s in-app cryptocurrency wallet created by the Hedera network last September, manages transactions on LG Art Labs.
Hashgraph, an alternative distributed ledger system (DLS) to blockchain that offers lightning-fast transaction times, highly functional smart contracts, high energy efficiency, and transaction fees that amount to only pennies, is the DLS that Hedera employs.
On August 12 of this year, LG submitted an application to register the Wallypto patent.
The two companies initially collaborated when LG joined other tech giants like Google, IBM, Deutsche Telekom, and Ubisoft on Hedera’s governing board in 2020.
LG Electronics enters the NFT market
LG is not the first Korean TV maker to integrate NFT trading into the viewing experience.
To develop a new NFT marketplace for owners of Samsung TVs, Samsung announced a partnership with NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway in March of this year.
Through a smart TV interface unveiled in January, users may view, purchase, trade, and display NFTs.
The Samsung MICRO LED, Neo QLED, and The Samsung NFT Platform supports the Frame TV models from 2022.
