  • Nate Chastain, OpenSea's former head of Product, stepped down last year after a number of people on Twitter discovered he was purchasing NFTs before they would appear on OpenSea's front page, and then profit from the front page pump. Last Wednesday, Chastain was arrested in New York on wire fraud and money laundering charges related to inside trading. He faces 40 years in prison.
  • Along with almost everything else in Crypto, the Solana network went down last week for 4.5 hours due to a bug in the durable nonce transactions feature. Have no idea what that means? Learn more here and here.

  • Yuga Labs refunded all Otherdeed minters that had failed transactions, which costed them a total of 1,653ETH (or approx 4M).
  • Beanz, Azuki's second gen nft revealed on Friday and had a pretty good reaction overall from NFT Twitter. The most underrated part of this reveal is the announcement that Rehito Hatoyama, ex-CEO of Sanrio (who's responsible for Hello Kitty) and board member of LINE Corp became an advisor to the team.
  • Doodles announced the hire of Julian Holguin, now ex-president of Bilboard, as their new CEO and subsequently mentioned that there would be an airdrop on May 12th.

In season 1, we started to establish the scaffolding for what Shiny Object Social Club would become. 🏗

We knew signalling to builders, creators, curators and web3 enthusiasts would bring a high level of talent together to collaborate and strengthen the community.

As we enter the second season we’re doubling down on how we can streamline collaboration between members and partnerships, as well as share our knowledge with the rest of the world.

In this article you’ll learn how to decrease the mint cost of your NFTs, increasing the chances of making more sales by saving your users real money.

Gas costs are a big factor in NFT projects. Especially with ETH reaching recent all-time highs. Whatever you can do to keep costs down, you should. At the Shiny Object Social Club, we’ve found a straightforward solution that many creators are missing.

When Shiny member, Craig Burgess, shared the extraordinarily low minting gas cost of his project, Real Fake Turnips, our developers, Jonathan Snow and Tom Hirst, wanted to figure out why. The smart contract used had a pattern we’d seen before. So we put things to the test.

We want to share this with the wider community so your next NFT project can benefit. Here’s what we discovered explained simply, along with steps to improve your code.

Happy to announce the start of the Shiny Object Social Club Season 1.

Here’s a bit of a recap of what we’ve done up to this point:

  • Put the idea of Shiny out into the world
  • Launched Shiny Magpie NFTs
  • Became profitable
  • Formed a core team of 7
  • Launched and airdropped the $SHINY governance token in collaboration with Seed Club
  • First in-person Shiny Event in London, UK!
  • Over the last 6 months, we’ve slowly grown the community to over 700 incredible and passionate people who’ve created a place that is a real pleasure to spend time.

Now, for Season One, it’s time to build in some solid foundations.

Not so long ago, if you wanted to start a business the process looked like this: You have an idea, write a business plan, try to get funding, and then pray people will pay for it. All done alone.

Today, in the age of the internet, businesses start with an idea shared with friends on a Discord server, then raising money through NFT Sales, Crowdfunding through Mirror, or by minting a Social Token. Organizations that used to be started alone now are started together. Businesses that took years to be profitable are making money before they launch.

Individuals and collectives can form, raise capital, and build things at a speed that we haven't seen before in traditional markets thanks to the rise of the Creator Economy, Crypto, Web3, Automation, and No-code. These internet native, fully distributed organizations are what the internet was designed for. With new Web3 tooling, we are collectively sitting at the cusp of an entirely new era.

That said at the Shiny Object Social Club have 2 core missions:
