I'm new here and just wanted to say hello to everyone! I felt the need to give a brief run down of how I ended up here. This is such an awesome platform and I am genuinely excited to have found it! All this blockchain technology nowadays has me eager to see what the future will bring. It is some really cool stuff. It feels like its been forever since something pulled me in so tightly!
I made my start on OpenSea (JED_NFT) buying a few crypto cards I enjoyed. The gas fees turned me off a bit, not going to lie. It led me to look for other alternatives. That's when I found the WAX blockchain with practically no gas fees for transactions. Then, a project called Colonize Mars came across my screen... I had no idea what the hell I was doing but I love space and mars so it pulled me in. I learned that in the future you would be able to earn rewards for land rights and ownership cards. This idea blew my mind at first! How a NFT could offer this? Shit, if you had enough money to invest you could probably make enough passive income to retire... Soon after learning this I found other projects like R-Planet that were actually already doing this! So cool. Anyway, I ended up buying a few crates which gave me some mediocre cards and a couple rare ones. The artwork is amazing and game is awesome but after sitting on them for a awhile I ended up losing interest.
Next thing ya know, I stumble onto Blockchain Cards (@reseller) on the AtomicHub marketplace. I discovered a NFT that said "redeem this for a signed physical copy". I was instantly interested. In the Telegram channel I expressed how awesome I thought the idea was and a very generous person gifted me a Dogey Pett redemption NFT. That kind gesture sealed the deal. Next thing ya know, I'm cashing out on my Colonize Mars cards to get more BlockchainCards! Now I'm hooked and absolutely love the community, people, project, art... all of it. My collection is getting larger and I was lucky enough to win a 1/1 golden sushi! It is surely my most prized NFT. You can visit my wax wallet here and browse! I will share pics of all of the physical cards when they arrive. Prepare yourself for series 3 soon to drop! Check Nefty Blocks for blends.
Shortly after all that, I discover an awesome NFT card game called @Splinterlands via a Blockchain Cards telegram promotion. I decided to give it a shot and see what it was about. Turns out the game is phenomenal and I'm ready to become invested lol! It reminds me somewhat of Magic The Gathering and Hearthstone. One day I would like to be able to try some of the competitions, but I have much to learn before all of that! Free time is limited and I don't get to play as much as I'd like but I won't let that deter me from collecting at the very least. Oh and they just started all this SPS stuff for the next year so all the more reason to collect and play! I strongly encourage anyone reading this that hasn't checked out @Splinterlands yet to go and check it out!!! The website is www.splinterlands.com and it is recommended to play it on the Brave browser!
When I learned of the Hive blockchain and what was apart of it, I realized I had been on @peakd in the past while looking at stuff from @reseller. After taking a second look at @peakd I knew this would be the best place for me to share this NFT/Blockchain journey and help contribute to the NFT community. The plan is to make a blog entry once a week, do some giveaways, and to help promote and share awesome projects. I am excited that a platform such as this exists... a blog on blockchain!
So aside from playing @splinterlands when I can and collecting Blockchain Cards (@reseller) I'm looking at some Crazy Lizard Army NFTs as well as some Galactic Secret Agency NFTs. The communities that are popping up around these projects give me some hope in humanity... I really like what FatBabyNFT is doing and he is an amazing artist. He's also part collaborator of the Galactic Secret Agency project. I'm excited to see what types of perks these communities will ultimately have! I will be paying attention.
Well, that's all for now. Thanks for giving me a read on this first entry. I haven't written anything in a very long time so I hope my grammar is tolerable lmfao 😅 With time, I do hope to become a stronger writer. Please don't forget to drop a follow! I'll be back next week with my next post. Goodnight all!
