Lulz Top Shot drop delayed indefinitely because they noticed a ton of bot activity. One one hand I commend them trying to tackle the issue.... but man, get it together!

The Jock x/10 was an instant sell-out. Couldn't grab one so snagged an open edition instead.

Good for Jock getting some units!!

Yeah good for him but it's so boring - it's literally just a picture of what would normally be a screen print. Some artists coming from this world like Jock must just be like wait, I can just sell my jpegs and not have to worry about printers and shipping and returns and all the rest? Sign me up!

^ Pics/link?

Who would have thought Greg Mike was so popular? I actually entered for the smily at nifty today because I thought it was a quick and easy flip, but so did 4,189 other people and bots, lol. An edition of 30 for five bills. Some cans, 10 “sets”, edition of 30 each for $2k each and over 2,500 entries in each.

Someone made a point on the set of 50 cans (1/1) being actioned:

Almost like that Psycho poster on eBay the other day.

I love the Greg Mike cans from tonight. Amazing how many entries there were. Especially at that price, which I thought was a little high. But based on the demand, i’m sure the resale market on them will be wild.

I entered all the can drawings and struck out 0/10.

Even if the odds get worse, I will still just enter all the drawings for the artists I like. Might get lucky. :rolling:

Those cans will be selling for $10,000 each by the end of the night. Hype is strong on discord and most wont be listed for sale.

I would hold them until the last week to get the physical art then sell for a crazy number.

Didn’t realize there were this many Greg fans on here. Who had ever bought his print or an original?

I should probably get on that discord thing.

Luls. I find it hilarious that his first crypto is so much more "popular" than his physical prints and original pieces. Can't wait to see who gets left holding the bag when dis is all said and done.

P.S. Someone should cross-post those MBW jawns in the proper thread.
