Want to stay ahead of the curve? Don't worry we got you. The market has been brewing, here's what's currently happening:

MicroStrategy is raising to buy more Bitcoin.

Source: watcher.guru

Key takeaway: With Bitcoin halving just around the corner, Michael Saylor’s company MicroStrategy is looking to raise a private round of $600M to purchase more bitcoin. This is coming as bitcoin is approaching its all time high pricing (at the time of this writing). Saylor has previously stated that “he will never stop buying Bitcoin “as he sees the future in it Read More »

Coinbase exchange glitches again.

Source: theblock

Key takeaway: Amid the soaring prices of Bitcoin, which lead to an increase in user activity on the exchange, Coinbase has glitched out once again reportedly showing user balance as $0 on their profile. A statement from the CEO Brian Armstrong and Coinbase clarified that it is investigating the matter and that all the funds are safe. We are most likely to see other exchanges come across a similar problem as there’s an influx in user activity, on the platform, as the market heats up. Read More »


So many mints, so little time. Don't worry Mani's got you covered. Eight gems to keep an eye on this coming week.


Bitcoin marked a significant milestone this past week, soaring 22% to close at $63,150. This increase represents the third instance in this cycle of BTC recording a weekly close with gains over 20%. With BTC flirting with its previous all-time high this week, there's growing speculation about a potential unprecedented shift in market cycle dynamics, especially as Bitcoin has never set a new all-time high before a halving event.

However, caution is warranted. Numerous indicators when viewed on longer time frames, such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Stochastic RSI, suggest that BTC is "overbought". Additionally, the "Fear and Greed Index" has surged above 80, a level of exuberance last seen in November 2021. The lack of significant back testing in Bitcoin's price ascent raises concerns about potential overextension and the necessity for market corrections.

Ethereum, while also posting impressive gains of 12% this week, still trails significantly behind BTC in its journey back to all-time highs. This disparity is further highlighted within the broader altcoin market, particularly as meme coin sectors show exceptional performance, diverging from the overall altcoin market's struggle to match BTC's ascent.

BTC Dominance remains a critical metric, ending last week at the high end of its recent range, reinforcing the uptrend that began in Q4 2022. This sustained dominance indicates we have yet to see a broad altcoin season materialize within this cycle, underscoring the market's current focus on Bitcoin.

As market dynamics evolve, broader economic indicators remain crucial. The persistently inverted yield curve signals potential recession risks, warranting investor attention. Jerome Powell's congressional testimony is anticipated to be a key influencer of market sentiment. With all eyes on employment data and initial jobless claims, the financial community remains on alert for signs that may dictate the market's direction amid prevailing uncertainties.


Notable Degen Mints

This is the segment where I will be keeping you all updated on the most notable releases throughout the upcoming week!

The mint price may put a lot of people off this project but this is a very limited supply release with A LOT of hype. I would highly recommend minting if you have access, this is a full 1/1 collection made by Digital Damage. Its inspiration for the art is punk-rock all inscribed on Block 9 (which is a rarer sat than common blocks).

Mint Price: 0.0138 BTC
Mint Date: 6th March
Mint Supply: 333
Mint Time: 3PM UTC

This is the second collection from the DeLabs team with their initial collection being the Delabs pass which currently sits at 0.2639 ETH which is always a good sign however i believe it limits the second collection (secondary market-wise). This is a fairly expensive mint on ETH too however there's a lot of interest in the project and they've already minted over 2,000 during presale too.

Mint Price: 0.06/0.08/0.1 ETH
Mint Date: 7th March
Mint Supply: 7,777
Mint Time: 12AM UTC for WL, 4AM UTC for Public.

Another gaming project but they're dropping with DN404 meaning alongside every full token/coin you will receive an NFT. This is fairly new technology within WEB3 and there's been a lot of experimenting so it's worth watching. Also, they hosted a presale for this collection but I am unsure on how many were sold during this period.

It's a mobile anime shooter game with 1M+ people in their gaming community, 300k+ players during season 1 and over 1.4 million on-chain transactions during this time.

Mint Price: 0.06 ETH
Mint Date: 7th March
Mint Supply: 3,000
Mint Time: 2PM UTC

Black Mirror, YES, the real Black Mirror has come to Web3, to offer an experience that is quite fitting for what the series itself represents. Many times as we are introduced to the social credit score, the metaverse, neurotech, and the flaws of the technology in this space as well as the humans interacting with it we are reminded of what Black Mirror the series represented at it's time.

Pixelynx is a company that is launching Smile Club with the Black Mirror franchise, this company builds out opportunities for fans to interact with IP in new ways. They have teamed up with Animoca brands to build the "Happiest community on earth" on base. A social experiment where we rank social points to increase our place within the ecosystem, and our rewards.

Their smile initiative has been running for a few months. A website where you smile for the camera on their website, and get a perfect score, you can do this as often as you want but get points for a daily check in, and by referring people you gain more and more points towards a free allocation of their mint. A system that had a lot of people scared to allow camera permissions, but the team assures us they are not recording any data, and just recording scores. This feels like a reflection of the fake farming in web3 where WL farmers fake it till they get WL. Really feels like the Hydration check bot era of the 2021/2022 bull market pump and dump discords.

Are you faking it for WL, or are you genuinely happy enough to smile for 5 seconds...Are you participating in the synergies this brand has with web3 or are you looking for your next Animoca backed bag?

Is this IP limitless in what they can do in the space, or is it just another Web2 cold hearted leaderless NFT project?

Pixelynx, has a history of products and launches. They have been around for quite some time, But mostly in the music space and this has kept them out of my algorithm personally, and maybe out of a lot of yours. In this case they have built Reup, a platform built for Black Mirror that will give you opportunities to engage with the IP, earn rewards, participate in the creation and consumption of new forms of media, mint new NFTs, and partake in missions and gamified experiences.

A cohesive transmedia platform journey does somewhat feel missing in a lot of the ecosystems we are a part of. With the death of "Metaverses" we are left on twitter, and engaging in different websites to feel as if we are a part of something. Is this the new experience we've been waiting for? The one only Web3 allows?

One huge component of this is that the Web2 audience Black mirror has amassed will very much enjoy a platform like this and perhaps even find whimsy in its existence. A sense of nostalgia to the days where this was fiction.

The collection size, collection price and many more aspect of this project are being kept very secret unfortunately...But with Animoca involved, we know there will most likely be a token at some point or another, and with the ecosystem the team has described it does absolutely make sense to have a token that would power it.

They are trying something new, something innovative, and based on what I've read and heard from the team there is a lot more to come. This franchise is very existential, and very meaningful to a lot of us in the space...I hope the project and its experiences will be too.

If this is just another Web2 brand coming to engagement farm us, and our time in order to sell this platform's use case to other brands, I will shed a tear for all of us. On the other hand if Black Mirror builds out an experience that really hits with both Web2 and Web3, this will be something we are all thankful we were early on.

Security 101: SIM SWAPS, SMS 2FA, Securing your X Account & more!

Twitter. Discord. Email accounts. They're all vulnerable to hacks.

Think SMS 2FA is the answer? Think again.

Recently multiple high profile people getting their X account compromised, leading to people losing their assets from drainer links & fake airdrops!

Sim-swaps happen all too often, leaving you exposed, but don't worry, an extra @Ledger, @Trezor or @Yubico can prevent it all!

First let’s check & secure your X Account:
Go to X (Twitter) on your PC and go to Settings & Account Access

🚨Delegate -> Your Delegations -> Members you've Delegated to use/post on your behalf, revoke anything you see there as soon as possible, hackers usually add it during the compromise, to still get access to the account even after recovery.
🚨Apps & sessions -> Connected apps, remove the apps from there.
🚨Check Current Active Sessions if anything is out or the ordinary, revoke & change password on a new device!
🚨Disable SMS 2FA! Remove your Mobile phone from X, and use FIDO U2F the described below!

1. What is FIDO U2F?

FIDO U2F is an open standard that simplifies and strengthens two-factor authentication (2FA) using specialized (USB/Lightning) or (NFC) devices. These devices are based on similar security technology found in smart cards.

Here's how it works:
Every time you register your device with a website or service, a unique key pair is created.

Then, when you log in to a website or service that supports FIDO U2F, you'll be prompted to tap or insert your device.

Once you initiate the process, the device will generate a new one-time use code to verify your identity.

This method is supported by a growing number of websites and services, including Discord, X (Twitter), Google, and Facebook.

2. How to activate it on your X (Twitter) account (this applies to most sites and social apps).

To enable it on your X (Twitter) via PC:

1. Go to Settings & Privacy > Privacy & Safety
2. Select Two-Factor Authentication
3. Choose Security Key

U2F key for added security.
You can still use a software based Authentication app such as @Authy or Google Auth.

Avoid using text (SMS) messages and remove your phone number from your account, it is a security risk!

You will be asked to retype your password to confirm
Then you will be asked to Add Key

To add, you can use your Trezor, Ledger or even buy a Yubikey

For Trezor T: (Pin Code Active)
1. Connect the Trezor T to your PC.
2. Enter your pin and click "add."

For Ledger:
1. Install the FIDO U2F app from Ledger Live.
2. Enter your pin
3. Click "add" on the website & then open the FIDO U2F app.

After completing the previous step, a backup code will appear.
Write it down & keep it in a safe place.

Do not store it as notes, on the cloud, or take a screenshot of it.

From now on, you'll need to use this device to access your account/ make any changes related to it. If you ever lose your device, don't worry.
You can recover it using another device, with your seed phrase and by installing the FIDO U2F App. This will fully restore its functionality.

Also note that you don't do/use/sign anything related to crypto at all.
