  • The story about the Twitter user that woke up after a coma and found out he lost all his money in FTX was fake and an attempt to bring attention to scams (feat. Reddit Detectives & Bitboy)
    by /u/Beyonderr on February 4, 2023 at 8:12 am

    About a month ago there was a story about Little Shapes, a Twitter user that mostly posts about NFTs and particularly his project called Little Shapes. On 29 December 2022, Little Shapes posted for the first time after many months of inactivity since 24 June 2022. Little Shapes claimed that he had been in a coma for 5 months and woke up three weeks before sharing the story. This story was first shared here in the subreddit on 29 December (3.3k upvotes) and an update on the story was posted on 18 January (1.5k upvotes). A lot of people were critical of the story here, especially because the story just kept getting weirder and weirder. In the last update, it was shared that his wife left him after supposedly cheating on him with a friend from the NFT space, and that Little Shapes was on a quest of vengeance to expose how bad the NFT scene truly is. The story was also reported on by several news agencies, like The Chainsaw. After the last update - the posts were getting weirder and weirder (and Bitboy liked this) After this update, the updates on Twitter by Little Shapes just kept getting weirder and weirder. An example: Of course, Bitboy loved the idea of a crazy conspiracy and wanted to have a chat. This story was a "social experiment" to expose NFT botnets Now, the person behind Little Shapes finally admitted that "Little Shapes was a social experiment” and shared a link to a 158-page document. In this 158 document, the team behind Little Shapes alleged that NFT scammers utilized bot networks to rug-pull "$200 million+ out of the ecosystem.” ​ Also, the people behind Little Shapes revealed that the project was a social experiment designed to shed light on this network of NFT scams. His reasononing was that he “needed a story that sells to make sure no one would ignore a story that hurts." So, congratulations to all the detectives on this subreddit who noticed some weird things about the story and predicted it was fake. You did good!

  • The bullish case for Reddit avatars with NFL drop imminent
    by /u/bingorunner on February 4, 2023 at 1:41 am

    The upcoming NFL/Super Bowl avatars represent another big investment for Reddit. You can’t even say Super Bowl these days without permission - radio and tv hosts etc literally have to say “the big game” as Super Bowl is a trademarked phrase of the NFL: Without express written permission from the NFL and/or the teams involved, you may not use the following, or related protected words or logos, in marketing or promotions, whether on-air, in print, online, or otherwise: “Super Bowl” “Super Sunday” The Super Bowl logo. Reddit has clearly invested millions into the licensing of this next avatar drop in partnering with the NFL. This is on top of their recent Reddit Cup (edit - not sure if that one was actually affiliated/using FIFA trademarks or not) avatar drops - both of which were/are free to users. The Reddit team is serious about building the avatar ecosystem and is showing it with these investments. At some point in the near-ish future Reddit will launch an avatar storefront - you’ll be able to buy and sell your avatars from other users, and of course a percentage of sales will go back to Reddit. This will make sales way more accessible to the average Reddit user who doesn’t want to use a third party marketplace or separate crypto wallet to engage with avatars. The ecosystem for avatars is growing and Reddit is investing heavily into them. They’re fun to mix and match (even if you just use the free ones, but there are some really slick looks among users with premium ones to combine). And we may be sliding out from a bear market. The future for Reddit avatars is bright. Good luck to everyone in the NFL drop, whenever it is - hope you get a low mint number! submitted by /u/bingorunner [link] [comments]

  • & CRO is proof on why marketing is so important.
    by /u/PUMPSII on February 4, 2023 at 12:25 am

    CRO has received a lot of criticism over the months and years in here. Some argued it didn’t have use cases, was just a copy of binances coin, or people were honestly flat out ridiculed for having CRO as part of there portfolio. However have gone on the most aggressive marketing campaign I have ever seen. Sponsoring major sports like the f1, obviously getting the naming rights to the staples center & having big names such as Matt Damon promoting it. Not only that they will be advertising heavily for the Super Bowl tomorrow which I’m sure is going to drum up a lot of interest. They have been extremely successful in literally shoving it in everyone’s faces and getting everyone to take notice. This is what undervalued and forgotten projects need. Now they have cut there earning rates with a lot of there tokens. Some may hate this but I believe it is a very smart move. You don’t want to be the next company that goes insolvent because of the greedy interest rates exposing yourself to potential margin calls or liquidations. Love or hate CRO it has also been fantastic for crypto exposure and adoption. Congratulations to all the CRO hodlers out there hope you guys are on your way to millionaires 😊🚀 What do you guys think could be the next coin or group that could do something like this? Cheers legends 🙂 submitted by /u/PUMPSII [link] [comments]
