WEEKLY<br />

@easymoneyding<br />

Thoughts regarding the last week of solana nft trading:<br />

@primatesnft is the only project the last fortnight that’s been worth holding longer than 48 hours - it’s transacted<br />

over 65K the last 7 days. the only project that’s been worth holding since day 1 post mint<br />

Arguably second in place in terms of profitability would be @UdderChaosSOL which made a run towards 9 SOL<br />

midweek, it’s since been sold off but there was a nice window of 4 days where you could have cashed anywhere<br />

in the region of 2 - 5 SOL prof trading the floor.<br />

6<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong>

There were a couple other projects that had brief moments of profit taking opportunity, @TheMagicDAO<br />

on a run up to 4 SOL, @artofmob turned out to be a free mint and has held it’s head above 3.5 SOL.<br />

The one that’s really caught my attention the last 2 weeks is @SolanaMBS‘s bounce off of 140 on jun 18 and has<br />

found a new home around 200 SOL.<br />

Otherwise it feels like a slow burn out there, there’s a little bit more risk appetite flooding back in over the last<br />

week, though it’s unlike before where established projects would find both price support and volume when the<br />

price of Solana bounced back<br />

There’s been some minor runs here and there but nothing that’s truly stuck on the wall like @primatesnft. There<br />

has been one consistent trading strategy I’ve seen work the last 6 weeks and that’s to swing trade @okaybears<br />

when it tests 75-80, seems to always get love there.<br />

A fair few projects are on discount and a lot of them are established ones with strong price action only 6-8 weeks<br />

ago. but since then we’ve had the luna crash and a whole bunch of VCs hanging on life support as a consequence<br />

of that.<br />

Nfts were seen as a hedge on the market, but that only seems to be the case in a bull market where projects<br />

tend to hold USD value, but in our current market state (risk-off), projects are seldom holding their sol value let<br />

alone usd value.<br />

There are some good signs out there, number of daily users and transactions continues to grow month to month<br />

which means adoption is still there.<br />

BOT HEAD<br />

@Bot_Head_NFT<br />

We’re incredibly excited to share that our Presale Tool for upcoming mints is now LIVE to the public! We’ll use<br />

this thread to talk about some of the features!<br />

UPCOMING MINTS If you have an upcoming mint - you can allocate the number of slots you’d like to give easily<br />

to various communities/discord roles.<br />

18<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong>

WALLET COLLECTION We collect the wallet and discord id of every user who signs up. This means that if a user<br />

signs up from one allocation, they will not be able to sign up from another. It also means that only users with the<br />

SPECIFIED role will be able to sign up for WL.<br />

UPDATE ROLES Our tool also checks that users are in YOUR discord before being eligible for WL. And once they<br />

submit their wallet, the Bot Head bot will automatically allocate them a NEW role in your server (and this can be<br />

whatever you want it to be)!<br />

All of this means that you will no longer need to ever MANUALLY add a discord role nor do you ever have to<br />

check a screenshot for proof of a role. We do all that for you!<br />

TOKEN DISTRIBUTION And if you’re doing a token-based mint, you no longer need to worry about airdropping<br />

them to thousands of members. Instead, you can have users CLAIM their tokens from our site - saving you in fees<br />

and other possible errors.<br />

BOT COMMANDS And if a user ever needs to CHANGE their wallet or CHECK their wallet - you don’t have to do a<br />

thing! They can easily run a command and check their wallet and/or change it within SECONDS!<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong><br />


USER EXPERIENCE The experience for users signing up for WL is literally one click. We take pride in the feedback<br />

we’ve seen from the community, and we let it speak for itself.<br />

INSTRUCTIONS All you need to set this up is to own 3 Bot Heads. That’s it! In the future we’ll be adding a subscription<br />

model (more on this to come)! You can follow step-by-step instructions in our SUPER helpful docs<br />

How Blacksmith Labs solves problems | DEXterlab<br />

We’ve been bullish on Blocksmith labs since the start when we posted this review just before the mint.<br />

Why? First, the BSL team are great devs, but what’s even more important they are not only good at building stuff. They are<br />

also good at finding the pains of the Solana NFT world and delivering solutions to relieve them.<br />

If you're active in the Solana NFT world, you probably used Mercury. The platform became a go-to place for the majority of<br />

NFT projects to collect WL addresses. For the service and additional exposure, BSL only asks for a portion of WL spot<br />

allocation. Those WL's are then auctioned or raffled for $FORGE (token of the Blocksmith Labs ecosystem).<br />

Mercury registered 300+ projects and 100,000+ users since its inception but the next thing the team introduced can potentially<br />

be even more significant.<br />

Bifrost and the problems it solves<br />

The team announced Bifrost less than a month ago. It will be a launchpad unlike any other with dynamic pricing, meaning that<br />

the mint price will change depending on the demand. This way, less hyped projects minting during harsh market conditions<br />

will not have to fear not minting out because the price will meet the level of demand.<br />

In the same way, projects will be able to maximize the capital raised when the demand is high. On top of that, Strata protocol,<br />

a backbone of dynamic Bifrost minting, is also equipped with anti-bot measures which hopefully will make public mints a<br />

competition between humans and not machines.<br />

32<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong>

Another big problem in the recent months was that early minters begin to list the NFT while the mint hasn't even ended yet.<br />

This usually creates unhealthy dynamics until the market finds a fair price. Bifrost will allow projects to freeze NFT listings<br />

until it's time to be listed on a secondary market.<br />

The lesser discussed feature – Discord role based whitelist minting is also super powerful. Right now, you have to submit your<br />

wallet if you earned, bought or won a whitelist spot. If you miss the wallet submissions, which are usually open for a few<br />

days, you lose your chance. Technically that's understandable as launchpads have to collect WL wallets before mint, but from<br />

user perspective it's a pain in the arse to keep up with all those wallet submission announcements.<br />

Just one week after announcing Bifrost, 100 projects have applied to be launched on it. Not all of them will be lucky, though.<br />

Because, unlike some other well-known launchpads, BSL will only work with legit teams who honestly wish to make Solana<br />

NFTs better. In fact, BSL says they will be launching only 2-3 projects a month.<br />

“If we wanted to, we could launch a project every few days for the next three months, but that's not what we are about. As you<br />

know, we only want to launch high quality projects and projects that we believe will do well.” - harmy<br />

We are yet to see the power of Bifrost, but the first project to use it is only a few weeks away, so we do not need to wait that<br />

long.<br />

The surprises don't end here though. 2 weeks ago, the BSL teased about SHFT…<br />

What do we know about it? Not much for now… to quote BSL:<br />

"Project SHFT, a revolutionary tech to shift the way we think, build and upgrade NFTs. SHIFT will introduce a new meta and<br />

make NFTs exciting again."<br />

I wouldn't pay attention if I hear such a claim from some random team, but when you hear this from BlocksmithLabs, it's<br />

different.<br />

Apparently, the SHFT has been in development alongside Bifrost, the tech is ready, and the team just needs to present it in the<br />

right way to show how powerful it is.<br />

Until we hear more about SHFT from BSL, we can earn some FORGE. All you have to do is follow @BlocksmithLabs, link<br />

your Twitter on Mercury, and add "(SHFT)" to your Twitter username.<br />

Final thoughts<br />

One more thing that BSL deserves credit for is that by delivering value to the Solana ecosystem, the team also ensures that the<br />

value they create is transferred to the Blocksmith Labs NFT and FORGE holders.<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong><br />


It isn’t easy to build a solid foundation for an NFT project token. Many projects fail just because the token fails as people<br />

often assign NFT value to the token's value.<br />

In the case of BSL, there’s a constant demand for $FORGE because it can be used on Mercury raffles and auctions. Even nonholders<br />

can participate in those auctions, so the people outside the BSL community create buying pressure.<br />

$FORGE will also be used on Bifrost as a portion of the supply will mint for $FORGE. How cool is to own a BSL NFT<br />

producing 10 $FORGE daily which you can spend on a solid NFT collection that passed "no BS filter" of Blocksmith Labs<br />

team?<br />

It’s not easy to find a project with sustainable demand for a token and I believe the BSL is one of a few.<br />

…and the cherry on top–the art upgrade is coming relatively soon!<br />

Always do your research, this is not financial advice!

Solana going mobile, NFTNYC2022, ME closing $130M, 2105: Voyagers riding and more<br />

Solana took the crypto world by storm with the reveal of Solana SMS (Solana Mobile Stack)<br />

and Solana Saga. With SMS being a toolkit enabling developers to build web3 mobile apps<br />

& Saga pioneering to be an actual Solana mobile phone with a crypto app store, it’s time for<br />

crypto to go mobile.<br />

NFTNYC2022 — the biggest NFT IRL meetup (so far) is coming to an end. We landed on a<br />

boat with Sidazhang, balled with Frank, IRL shitposted, and most importantly, met frens we’ve<br />

been talking to on Twitter for months. As it winds down, we’re setting sail to a brighter future.<br />

Solana bussin fr fr.<br />

As we are celebrating NFTNYC, Magic Eden closed its $130M Series B funding at a valuation<br />

of $1.6 billion. I remember at my time back then, ME was just one of the launchpad options.<br />

Now it has become the largest launchpad on Solana with 20m SOL in total volume. Congrats!<br />

@easymoneyding<br />

There is a plethora of amazing analytic tools we have at our disposal to track our beloved Solana NFTs.<br />

There’s Hello Moon, which has a focus on the top volume and smart money/social buying. Another<br />

commonly used tool would be Solswatch, which enables tracking of top volume, floor movers, largest<br />

gainers and fallers paired with listing percentage graphs and supply figures. If you love your charts,<br />

then perhaps Solsniper is more up your alley. These three tools are commonly employed by your everyday<br />

trader and so they should be. They can sway the way we view a particular project or entry point<br />

and it’s a proven method of better informing our trading decisions. However, none of them provide the<br />

type of profile picture insight or social media influence data that NFTInspect does.<br />

NFTInspect is a social ranking system of both NFT projects and twitter profiles across both the Solana<br />

and Ethereum blockchain. You can filter projects by collection sizes less than 1K, 1K-10K and 10K+.<br />

For this article, we’ll be focusing on the Solana blockchain for obvious reasons.<br />

For the moment, only those who have installed the chrome extension are privy to both accessing the<br />

data and having their data drawn. NFTInspect does have a larger following on Solana. At this moment,<br />

Solana holds 10 of the top 20 projects across both chains. My hunch is that project ranking is a cross<br />

weighting system of the metrics Unique PFPs, PFPs Per NFT and Community Reach. I’d love to find<br />

out the specific weighting formula. There are three main metrics being valued. Unique PFPs is the<br />

number of unique NFTs from this collection being used as a Twitter PFP. PFPs Per NFT. Community<br />

Reach is the percentage of Inspect Chrome Extension users exposed to this collection in the preceding<br />

24 hours.<br />

74<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong>

Personally, I believe Community Reach and PFPs Per NFT are the two leading indicators for understanding<br />

influence when it comes to projects. A high % of PFPs displayed would have some correlation<br />

towards how strongly the art is perceived and how proud the community is to reflect that. Community<br />

Reach is a 24hour rolling metric that rewards those who post frequently and recently.<br />

Solana NFT PFPs account for 100% of the top 15 profiles across both chains. Out of the top 50 profiles<br />

across both chains, only 8 are displaying Ethereum NFTs whilst a whopping 84% ride with Solana.<br />

What’s rather interesting is that NFTInspect has also identified the type of twitter poster these influencers<br />

are. They’re categorized into Builders and those who run giveaways for the moment.<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong><br />


Let’s dive deeper into the type of data that NFTInspect provides us.<br />

For context, Okay Bears is Solana’s top ranked project on NFTInspect. Here, you can visually track how<br />

strongly the projects PFPs are being displayed. You can see that in the last 15 days, total individuals<br />

displaying an Okay Bears profile picture has dropped from around 3450 to 3200, however the reach of<br />

those displaying an Okay Bears PFP has not necessarily been impacted. This leads me to believe that<br />

those who have traded their PFP for other projects aren’t as impactful as the Okay Bears still displaying<br />

their PFP (which you can see in the profile flow at the bottom of attached image). Tweets with NFT is<br />

the number of tweets with an image of the NFT from this collection that has been viewed in the proceeding<br />

24 hours. It is likely that NFTInspect is scraping the number of engagements and views from<br />

each post that has an NFT displayed as their PFP.<br />

The profile flow metric is particularly interesting and fun to play with. You can adjust the profiles with<br />

followers to different levels to measure what those with larger follower counts are doing. The graphic<br />

below shows the difference in profile flow on Okay Bears of followers with 1K+ followers and 10K+<br />

followers.<br />

76<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong>

As you can probably tell, there are slight differences in the projects they are swapping from and swapping<br />

into. Very interesting if you love understanding the intricacies of social worth within various NFT<br />

collections. What’s even more interesting in the 10K+ follower data, is that notable ETH collections such<br />

as Azuki, Doodles, CryptoPunks swapped into Okay Bears, reflecting the attraction and conversion of<br />

ETH NFT holders we saw congregate over to Solana. On the backend you can see that once they were<br />

done holding Okay Bears or perhaps taking profit on this collection, they then moved to DeGods, Taiyo,<br />

Boryoku Dragons and Solana Monkey Business – perhaps long-time grails they’ve wanted and finally<br />

had the liquidity for. Compare this data to that of the followers greater than 1K and you can tell there<br />

are more flippers in this territory, as amongst the top 10 collections swapped into, 3 or 4 of them are<br />

even more recent mints as opposed to established OG collections. You can even adjust the number of<br />

collections shown to reflect more data points. Here, I’ve swapped total collections to 30 whilst keeping<br />

profiles greater than 1K+ followers.<br />

This data is amazing not just for traders, but also for project owners. They can pinpoint exactly which<br />

community members are the most vocal with the most impactful voices. Is it possible that in the near future<br />

the top community members are rewarded by projects for being brand ambassadors? I can totally<br />

see @justinape receiving that stamp of approval but on a more official level.<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong><br />


If that was the case, perhaps we wouldn’t have seen him change his PFP to a Primates! Justin was the<br />

poster boy for Okay Bears and personally, I believe he drove up a lot of the community sentiment. From<br />

the data above, he held an Okay Bear for over 47 days and during that time his follower count has more<br />

than doubled with his global reach in the last month moving from around 18-19% to now sitting well<br />

over 30%. I’d love to see a world where hypothetically Okay Bears signed Justinape to a sponsorship<br />

deal with the content he was putting out for them for say 90 days for X amount of Solana. That would<br />

bring a whole new element to Crypto Twitter and perhaps it would incentivize celebrities to deliver valuable<br />

content to our space as opposed to just flashing the badge (displaying the PFP) and dipping. As<br />

the NFTInspect metrics suggest, you can tell Justinape delivered true content with 97% value and only<br />

3% shitposting.<br />

The data that NFTInspect reveals is very telling. Primates, a recent PFP orientated project that minted<br />

with unique profile picture art is currently ranking number 3 out of all collections. For a 10K collection,<br />

you can see their steady incline on Unique PFPs rising up since inception towards at least 24.5% of<br />

their supply being displayed.<br />

The Primates data over the last 20 days reflects those holders of both Solana and Ethereum projects<br />

were able to swap into the project. I’d go further to suggest a high percentage of flippers were amongst<br />

these trades as the outflow of projects suggests with movements back into a lot of projects in the 1-10<br />

Solana price region as profiles with 10K+ followers were the ones swapping into the top 8 outflow proects<br />

displayed. Interesting to note the movers in this price range into Solgods the last week.<br />

78<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>63</strong>

Regardless of how you want to interpret the data, NFTInspect provides value that other tools do not.<br />

It’s a metric that enables us to determine not only the floor price value of a particular project, but also<br />

the social value of displaying it. If you look closely enough, you’ll also be able to determine which art<br />

slaps and which profile pictures do not. Our NFT market has always been dominated by PFPs. Utility<br />

and meta will change quicker than the seasons, but PFP meta will never die off. That is the reason why<br />

NFTInspect’s data is crucial to understand.<br />

@its_brad_b<br />

Brief thoughts on ‘editions’ from a collector POV: I love editions<br />

that look visually different from an artist’s 1/1’s. People<br />

collect a 1/1 because it’s special, but if nobody can tell whether<br />

it’s special or higher quality, they may be less motivated to<br />

spend more on it.<br />

Just because you CAN do editions, doesn’t mean you<br />

SHOULD. What I mean is, make sure they serve a purpose<br />

in your portfolio. Typically, they’re used to gain reach with an<br />

entry-level price. But if your 1/1 is selling

Grape art is an NFT marketplace built by DAOs for DAOs by @grapeprotocol which is On-Chain, ‘ie’ Built directly<br />

on Solana (decentralized), and Not sitting on a central Server DB like Magic Eden & Opensea.<br />

Recently lots of new features has been added to the marketplace and many integrations has been made. With<br />

Grape art you can send messages directly to the owner of an NFT in the marketplace, this hasn’t been done or<br />

seen on any marketplace on Solana.<br />

It’s @The_URS_ airdrop time! Let’s see what we have in store this month! First, the prompt: “I had the story, bit<br />

by bit, from various people, and, as generally happens in such cases, each time it was a different story” Ethan<br />

Frome, by Edith Wharton.<br />

I am no literary savant, so I had to do some research on the book and the writer. I recommend doing this for each<br />

of the prompts! It helps to ground oneself in the characters, settings, and emotions you may find in the resulting<br />

pieces. Now on to the art!<br />

URS<br />


One of my favorite parts of this project is when I get art from creators I’m not familiar with! Excited to dive into<br />

more of their photography/collage work.<br />

Love the immediately recognizable style and color palette. I have been eyeing a piece or two of theirs from previous<br />

drops on secondary, as well.<br />

Someone I have been watching for a while Love the fluid lines and gorgeous color choices here.<br />

That’s it for this month’s airdrop! Congratulations again to the @The_URS_ and all the artists who contributed<br />

their amazing work. While we’re at it, let’s look at some of the pieces from previous drops that I picked up on<br />

secondary this past week, most for less than 1 $SOL.<br />

His editions are partly responsibly for my full-on art collecting addiction. Another wonderful piece<br />

The soft lines and delicate blending work are haunting and beautiful. So glad to have found this piece!<br />

Hope you enjoyed! It’s never too late to grab a crown, or watch the secondary markets on @MagicEden and @<br />

exchgART for amazing pieces from so many talented creators.<br />
