Is it worth going after one of the Trevor Jones open editions for $777? New to this whole thing and still trying to figure all this fudge out, haha. It's one of the better looking NFTs I've seen, but I have no idea what I would do with it other than resell it. Don't really have anywhere to display these things.

No idea mate. This market seems very unstable to me. You could buy it and it may flip for more or everyone buys it and prices drop. With every sale the artist takes 10% and the website take a fee, so if you sell it for $777, you technically lose money. Its a risk for sure.

Tonight's drop there will be a lot of ppl going for.

It IS really volatile right now. So many new platforms popping up. Will NG be the platform to go to in 6 months or a year? Is NG saturating their market?

I'm not even sure the way this fudge is moving so fast.

I would say like all other art if you like it, buy it.

Will it be a decent investment? No one knows.

You definitely wont be able to flip it right away for money unless you are one of the first minted ones with a low #.
Ppl seem to go for those right after the drop and dont understand why a low mint number matters.....

I am also beginning to wonder if this is just a way to launder btc or maybe I just went to the NFT thread on UAA. :shock: Those guys have high doubts of NFT.

Jock Joker drop today!

Also a Top Shots pack drop today at noon PST. Although these drops are now almost impossible, worth a shot if you're around! Queue has started about 30 minutes before drop time lately.

Kinda meh on the Jock drop. But maybe I am just Batman'd out. Glad to see him make the jump, though!

I also have a few outstanding bids on MP so I might not be down to drop another bunch of $$ at the moment, ha.

Also - Top Shots bumped back to 3pm EST... not surprising.
