So I used to run some Facebook groups where we raffle off like watches and iPads and shit like that and people would enter to win and be like little contests. I have a bunch of grails that I definitely don't want to sell on the cheap, but I think people would enter to win them for like 25 bucks. You know could be like point you know 025 or something or even less .01 and then just have more entries. But the idea is basically post the morning show.
They're going to, they're gonna enter to win it. So I get what I want. And then their entries would be 20 bucks, because I'll throw out 20 bucks on some names too as well, because I would love to, you know, gamble to win some cool ones. Well, whatever it is.
You know, basically we have Polygon tokens, so I'll make like I'll make a picture of the domain and then sell it under however many slots we want per whatever price under Polygon. And that way everyone can buy and do all that shit without having a lot of fees. And then every morning once everything sold out, we we basically announce winners and then we announce new names that are going to be on the block and then you know, we have a.
True, true. I like the idea. I actually really like the idea in terms of like talking with the debs, like, it'll keep us up-to-date, we'll stay super sharp on like, everything going on within the ecosystem.
Well, that's something separate. I think you should start your own weekly or biweekly show called NS Facts, frequently asked questions and where you bring on a developer and then we make documentation of your simple answer, simple questions, simple answers and then boom, that's it.
And once they all sell we will pick a winner out of those winners. You know just basically pick somebody to win through like some you know it wouldn't be too hard to to figure that out and then you know every time all the tickets have sold that's another name that we kind of announced every day and we could do multiple names you know, but essentially just offering up names for a chance to win and.
I think that I think that'll be a great way also for people to get at least their accounts, some notoriety, at least their accounts notice, right? Cause it's like if this person has this name, what else do they have in their wallet? You know what I'm saying? It's like we'll announce the name. I can market the shit out of that.
And it's just got 25 if you spend 10 bucks, 25 bucks and you could get something that is has very a lot of value because people are and we're going to price these at what you know people are valuing them at today and you know.
It's just this. So this is something that will sell for sure because I'm, I'm interested in wanting, you know, maybe also abstain from doing it, but you know, it's something that I would do if someone else was doing so.
OK, so now let me, let me get into the minutia of the details right. If we were to do nobody's gonna do it for 20 bucks, nobody's gonna do it for 10 bucks. If we did it for 5 bucks, like how many people there's at least?
Country as far as they bought a Polygon picture of the ENS name we're gonna do, and then however many tickets they hold out or whatever and it just picks it itself. I mean I can, I know a dev can make that.
Even just a picker tool something. But if we have to do it manually at first, you know, we'd be basically just enter the entries in Excel and use use some kind of thing to pick it. We'll pick up like a, you know, a random number picker and then we look at Excel and see where that person is.
I mean, I'll do all that. I'll handle all the manual and I'll handle all that kind of stuff in the beginning, no problem until we pay someone, which I think can happen really quickly, especially we raffle off some higher name like, you know, I'm even wanting to buy some names that will definitely go off raffle, like 5 digits or whatever and.
How much green GRENINJA was talking about doing Lotto and he has like a lot more followers than me. So, like, I think people just saw my idea and they're trying to, you know, see if they could do it as well.
So well this is something different. I have a couple things I'm thinking of. So ENS gang is just a PFP project where it's literally the logo and a sub domain. So you know the Maxis. But a real maxi just has the NS logo. You don't need a PFP. So kind of maybe I saw some sub domains for that. This is a little fun thing. Next I want NFL champion to do a weekly or BI weekly show where he brings devs up or talks about and essentially disseminates information from the dev.
Because there's legality issues there, but I know the way around them so we don't have to worry about that. I've been doing it on Facebook for a while, but essentially we pick a name that has a value, say DAFUQ defunct dot E for 2.5 E we have 100 entries that you know, whatever .025 each people buy a Polygon NFT that acts as an entry ticket for that raffle and then every morning I have a show to announce.
Yeah, for the raffle, The thing is like um before I was working for a web three company, right, and we were running Twitter spaces every single week and this was since Jan up until May and and we weren't docks at the time and then kind of may we came out with the doxing um. But the point is, is that we had a raffle or a giveaway every single week. Now depending on the community at that time the community was.
Pretty niche. So like they were really involved in the project, so you didn't have incentivized traffic where they were just coming for the giveaway and didn't really care about, you know, the longevity of being a sticky community member. So like there will come a tipping point where if you're doing it every day, you're just going to attract a low value audience that might not be as sticky as what you want it to be. So then I like the idea and I like the workaround.
I think there there's always a possibility of, you know, all kinds of things happening. But I think there are people who want names for a chance, you know, HR $10 in to be able to get a grill and if it gets told Champ, if we do this and it fails, you know, I'd rather just go ahead and do it and then see what the problems are and trying to work, work our way around it and figure out how to solve it instead of.
Because I always think about what could go wrong and a lot of that. A lot of the time it stops me. But I can tell you I did this successfully with iPads and Rolexes and all kinds of stuff in a Facebook group for like 2 years and we charged a fee, you know, for each name that we help someone or each thing, you know, item if someone was like had a Rolex or something like that.
So I guess all that's to do is basically just try and make it happen. I'd be willing to put up some of my grails, you know, even at a discount to be able to kind of get some excitement and have, you know, like a small $100 giveaway for people who enter. So if you don't win their name, someone else who won 100 bucks.
Yeah, I think, well, wait, let me ask you a question like because I was telling Josh, I was like, nobody's going to do it for 20 bucks or 10 bucks or lucky, maybe even 5 bucks. Like what would be the price point that?
Wait, what? What would you like if you saw a grill that was up for a raffle? What would you put in? Because I think in the here's the thing. Oh my God, this is a marketing dream. Actually. The earlier you get in, the less competition you have, right? Like, we're a small show now, so it's like you're competing against less people. And like, if we're the ones putting up the grill, it's like, that's a win win for anybody in the raffle, but I can sell the shit out of that. That'll sell itself, to be
Saying it that's the way Facebook is or they would just block you, they would just close your account. So this is just a way to avoid it and people will understand, people will get it right or wrong and it's breakfast and now we can take morning show kind of things.
You don't need to. Yeah. It's just like a it's. So here's how it would go, right? We would have the show, right? It wouldn't be a long show. Like we could just have it just like in any other space, right? We say that we're waffling.
Right. NYC accountants dot E and people are like ohh shit like I want to get in on that. I would love that. That's a grill and it's a $2.00 entry, right? Let's just say. But you could buy multiple entries, right? As many as you want. You just have to be able to pay for it, right?
No, I I I think something between, yeah, if it was like 2 to $5, it's not so much. But then The thing is, Sam, you know, like say let's say you hear it for the first time and you're like ohh, that sounds interesting. You're like $5. I don't mind that. Typically it's going to be like 5 to $10.00 for gas. And then most people are going to be like actually I'm not going to.
So we're using polygons, so no gas. We're going to make tokens of the name and then we're going to have a valuation of what we want. So people aren't like, you know, we're going to cap the entries, maybe some will be unlimited entries if it's really a rail, but.
Not in valuation, there's just us, so I forgive you example. I have default DAFUQI want at least 2.5 E for it, so I would put it up for 2.5 E split 100 ways, which is .025 entries or something like that. And then I make Polygon NFT of that word, pull 100 * 100 tokens. And then each person could just go ahead and buy a one or more token and then once that sells out we'd pick between who wins.
That I feel like we're complicating the whole process, bro. Like, I mean that I'm not gonna fuck with. Because when you start tokenizing things now, you're falling into different territory, homie, that's something I do not want to do.
It's it's it's it's you're not tokenizing it bro. If we're all we're doing is giving them a way to buy tickets and us for us to track it easier because in order to we don't want to do any of this manually.
Yeah, but there's a reason why you get banned. There's a reason why you get banned for saying waffles or the other version, right? There's a reason why, bro, is because this stuff skirts the line when it comes to money laundering.
I know all the no, no, no. The only thing is there, I know the what you have to do to make it legal. And the way you have to make it legal is by making it a game like we are. People are entering to win a game.
It could be considered. Yeah bro, let me ask you a question. If I tell you, hey Josh, I have a prize that I want you to win, right? And it's a fucking $5 fucking retail item that I raffle off. But the concept that I that I pitch out is fucking amazing. But all those funds, right, are going to go to the person who owns it. Who is you, let's say, right? And I get a million people my 2,000,000 followers to to, to donate $1.00. I just made 2,000,000 bucks.
That's completely legal. Trust me. And I can show you where it's legal because I like I operated a Facebook group for two years and they want to shut you down, but they couldn't because we were in, we were doing it legally because certain lotteries are illegal. But if it's a contest?
OK. And and and what I'm saying is I love you but you're not a lawyer and I'm not taking a chance on like I'm, I'm I want to do the concept but like we have to figure out a way to be able to do it. Like is there no other way other than like because when it's involving money, dollars and cents, like that's a whole different ball game. That's a business.
And we're talking about this is not even money. Like the government doesn't see Ethan's money even yet. You know they're not like as long as you keep it and E the second they want to know if something is when you cash it out, that's when the tax event happens.
Are you high, Josh? Josh, are you hot, bro? Listen to me. Go read the the recent IRS. Like the IRS updates, bro. Like for 2022. OK? I'm telling you right now, everything from a swap, even a wallet transfer, is something that they're considering as fucking tax.
I know, but I'm definitely just gonna go forward with this. I understand if you have some apprehension, that's OK, you know. But I'm I'm gonna be doing this and I'll take the legal responsibility for it, and I will pay my taxes when I make a profit. So I don't. I don't see how it's an issue, but I understand if you're a little wary of it, it's not a problem. But I've done it for two years on Facebook and they warned me about a bunch of stuff and I was able to get in compliance.
That's what I'm saying. If there is, I agree. But if there is the possibility of it being interpreted as that by anyone, right? That's something I just want to be wary of. I'm not saying I don't want to do it, yeah.
As long as I pay taxes, they don't care because we're showing how this money came to be and how it's a profit and how we're giving the government their share. It's when you hide it is what where you have an issue.
Well, no, I'm not asking from the IRS standpoint. And if anything I would want it to wear like if we're gonna get a depth to actually do this and automate this that we do it either way we divide want it to be done like via like a multi sig, I love you, but I don't trust you. But I have no idea what's going on in your life or anybody else's life out here. So we could do that. I like like, I love the idea, bro. I really do. I really, really like it and I want to, I want to figure out a way to make
Um, I mean, for right now I have say haters gonna hate someone wants it really bad for like 1 eat. But I think the valuation is probably like at least five for a meme like that, you know? So I would split it up into $5 entries, you know?
And we use a spreadsheet to list them all down. We use the number picker and then we look at wherever, obviously in this spreadsheet it is. And you know people are going to trust us after a while. Go ahead.
No, no. You just go on open sea. You just create a Polygon token with the image you say how many there are and then it just listed on openc. For you just make a collection you can literally just and openc allows you to create and then left.
I mean, we'll have the money because people buy tokens for tickets and all the money goes into the wallet. Then we'll subtract our fee, which is what, 1020% or something like that, and then we send them the rest of the funds.
Because it's not really trustless and for nosey safe you need like multiple, multiple. I mean it doesn't. I don't care if you hold the money or me hold the money. I mean it'll it might. I might not be able to do it some weeks. I wouldn't. Even not, it's nothing to be worried about because.
Yeah. Like when am I gonna do like I'm gonna try and enter like it? I I I would hope the reason I did the damn tattoo thing is to gain trust. You know, in a way because people don't believe someone just gonna tattoo their why would somebody tattoo my health name on them for 100 bucks or whatever the hell I said? It's because I wanted to show I I do what I said.
Alright, so yeah, it just, you know, you're overthinking it. Don't worry about the money stuff. We're not gonna once if we're making millions of bucks yet. Let's fucking make a multi issue with 18 fucking people, eight different employees, but we're just, we're just selling some names for a few weeks.
And we want to be able to, we're going to basically be able to guarantee liquidation of these names if they're good, guaranteed because I'm, I, I probably can't be bidding on, you know, entering because it's a, it's a, what do you call it? Yeah, conflict of interest, but it's something I want, bro. It's something I would wish people would do.
Ohh yeah. So they have a timer on it and I'll make it like I'll let it run and then I'll run it some more to get it extra crispy. But it's yeah I'm gonna buy these. One of these waffle makers effect. I'll take a picture. Just so dope.
In it, right. And and I think of that and that's I say $2.00 because if psychologically if you think about when we talk about dollar amounts in this world, the cheapest thing that we can think about is a $5 renewal. Think about that psychologically, right. Psychologically we we feel that A5 character domain is cheap for $5 renewal. So having a a a waffle.
Honestly, NFL champ, I think it's important to lay out the logistics clear, right? If you lay out the logistics and and the rules behind it, there are people in this community. You've established a level of trust in this community. That's what's important, right? You know, I don't care how many. You know, people have fake followers out there, but you know when people build organically, there's a certain level of trust. So, so you have a certain credibility behind your name.
So the the what you put out there people are going to pay attention to and if you lay it out logistically correctly then they'll they'll want to participate. Now how how far that reaches, I think you would have to maybe do a test run and see it's no different than you know the devs in this space. You know sending something to the test net. There's there's no different. You need to do a test run 1st to see what type of people would be interested in something like that.
And you have the individuals who are going to be part of it make sure that they push it out there to their organic following so that you can kind of get some traction on it. But I think if you lay it out, you describe the logistics involved, put the post out there, you know, I don't know, maybe you want to create a band, not a banner, but a little flyer for something like that, you know, so it can get a little bit more eyes on it. But I mean I think if you approach it that way.
Champ, you know people are going to follow you because they trust you, not because of the, the, the, the overall product that you're, you're presenting, so to speak. When you combine trust in a product, man, you got something big there. That's that's how you do it out here, man.
And your and your actions and how you move is how you move out here you know and and the actions that that you take man and I think that you've established you know a certain level of trust out here man and and and it's only going to continue to build. I mean we're early on so we're we're we're kind of preaching to each other so to speak and and sharing things with each other but as the space starts to grow.
A trust is gonna bleed over into other people who are going to come and maybe listen to your old spaces and and connect with some of the people that are already here. Because you know, before when they when when the people here were trying to talk to the other people, they shun them away and they didn't want to hear about web three and ENS and crypto and all of that stuff. But soon they're going to come back around that same group of people and that network and circle that you used to have aroun
Yeah, versus I was really, really a great description. So I'm thinking a little bit multifaceted, right? So like champ, you've built an incredible reputation in no time at all. And that's purely down to your approach, your mannerism, your consistency, your openness. You know, you're an excellent host and you're quite warming to, to speak to in in in this kind of environment when you don't know the other person.
Um, so this is one on the back of that you've built a really unique audience and humanity that love to come to these spaces and hear what's being said right. And and I think when you think Champ you think education and really moving the space forward for the better in terms of development and shall sharing the stage with great projects that really again that helped the space when you start at.
Kind of implementing any sort of incentivization model to that communication flow. I think it then muddies the waters in terms of kind of what you started out with. Almost what I'm trying to say is I don't and this is just my personal opinion. Yeah, I think you're smashing it already organically. Like you just don't need to do something like this. And whilst there might be a place for it and it's all about timing and there's quite a lot of.
Avenues for people to kind of liquidate. It might not be the ideal price but there's there's a lot of avenues right now. So whilst I I think it's a good idea, I think for yourself personally, and this is just me as an individual, I'd say it probably doesn't quite match your individual brand because you know you're becoming quite a thought leader in this space and I don't think incentivization and waffles or what have you fit.
Yo-yo, GMGM. I can actually say GM because it's morning here and here we got hey, how you going? Yeah, two things. First, my dogs called waffles or waffle. And so I was very confused. I was like, wait, what, what? What's going on?
So, you know, yeah, I he's he's pretty good. And then the other thing I was just thinking like that you can take another leap on this but again going with timing and and and education like oh you know I don't think it's quite you per se, but it might be something that can work out in future for an entity. I don't know but you did. You'd have to do it like I say, you do it the right way. You build those bridges first openly with like you're not trying to hide anything.
And you actually doing it to to do like a charity like waffle, you know. So like actually get the person who's domain is to pick their choice of charity something like that have it all out video documented. Like get the receipts and dockets that the proof of payment go to them. But that's the scale we've got to think of. Not just like like in an echo Chamber of 20 of us going Oh yeah I might get like .28 this week I think we.
From the outset to show again like when you're talking about it's not this or like Fiat or whatever, it's like this and that it can complement you know it's another way to kind of yeah like add liquidity and like.
That is just yeah sitting there and I I know there are charities out there that take crypto payments and and yeah just a bit of research 1st and that way you know if you do it all above board from the start that's the way I think to get the message out there in the right way that we you know I think you and I and we want for this community right.
Yeah, I see. I know. I actually know a, a charity, not personally, but through a community I was with last year. Like, it was called the Community Zoo. And everybody had to send in a photo of that dog and like, there's a picture of the dog. And they all got bought through open sea, like a collection of like 100 dogs. And it was literally, yeah, like, it was all legit. And then all the money just went straight to the chat, you know, to this dog keeping it was a pet.
But yeah, yeah, it's uh, what was the name of the place? I can't remember. But yeah, definitely it's becoming more of a thing, right, to be able to pay charities with that. And then two, two thing, two things from that, like if it was a charity donation.
And the chance because a lot of charities do waffles right across the world, like like that's how they get people to like in here in Australia you can win like a house like there's one every few months through like the Surf Life saving.
Um, association or whatever it's called and it's just purely based on donations. But then again, like it's a national like thing that everyone knows and trusts and respects. It's all about board to you know from what you can see from the surface, but.
No, I was going to say man, I think that I think like you like like AAA medicine. I think that if if you can kind of just maybe jot down some ideas, I'm pretty sure you getting some some pretty good Nuggets here. But jot down those things and try to figure out what would be the best approach, right, what would be the best entry point to kind of kick it off and if that's with a charity or if that's some other way.
I think that you kind of gotta narrow it down and kind of figure out which how do you really want to launch this thing that kick it off with a bang, you know? And then from that point, you've got people watching, you have people involved, you have people that are interested. And then from there, once you do the second one and it is like it's natural existence being it's natural.
Possibly be involved. So I would say just kind of jot it all down man and and and and figure out kind of how you want to approach it. I think it's a pretty cool idea champ. It like you said it's just the logistics and and figuring out kind of how you want to how you want to approach it.
OK. Yeah, I think the charity thing is a great idea. I personally have names that are valuable that I can put a CAP evaluation on and you know basically give like 1020% you know of my names to charity. The fast liquidity would help me so much. I don't have a problem giving me something for sure to to people that would help and we can on board some of these maybe crypto organization with ENS by even getting their EMS things you know for them as well. Yeah, whatever I can do to help help people.
I think that's a great idea. I think we could just find people with these rails already. I mean, I already contacted a couple of these people that are kind of whales that I know. And I said, hey, if I can actually wrap up your name and get you what you want for it, you know, would you be down there? Like, yeah, hell hell yeah, I want to sell these things.
So I I think we can also put aside some to buy our own if you know. Sure. I mean I'm down for whatever we can create a Dow, whatever you want. I essentially just want to provide a place together to sell these things to provide a chance for people to win a name they normally wouldn't even be able to afford. You know, imagine winning something that's worth a few weeks when you only put 2 bucks in you know that that I can't imagine you know the feeling from that and I don't.
Yeah, so, and I don't think people care if it's going mostly charity and also to help the person who sell the name. They don't care. They'll lose 2 bucks because, you know, it was a chance. And if we tap the tap, the valuation of whatever the name to make sure, you know, it's not just crazy unlimited entries, unless it's like a really good name or something, then people would feel comfortable putting it in. They just don't want to be gouged. You know, I want to have very proud, very, very fair v
But yeah, yeah, I think there's a lot of value there. I mean I think once we have money, it would be easy decision to sponsor some of these, you know shows as well to to put our name out there. So I think it can help all of the community.
Yeah that's what I was kind of thinking NFL champ I think it's like with the the Shark Tank Partnership right. And maybe some of the other auctions and partnering with them too because if sometimes if people don't sell their names make the it's kind of a law that they kind of just write back in there way of saying to themselves Oh my goodness you know I'm I may not sell this thing but if they had another outlet it's almost like a.
Or secondary, secondary market, if that makes sense, right, because hey, my, my name didn't get solo and we're so early, right? So we have to also understand there's not a huge, a humongous amount of buyers that are in this space right now. So you being able to provide another Ave for people who I would say have maybe low cap names, right, or domains?
You know, you can start off from a tier, maybe a tiring system or something like that champ, where you you guys would have to also have some type of some type of appraisal method too. Because you would need to break these things up in the tearing system where hey, all of these names fall into to tier one, all of these names fall into Tier 2, and all these names fall in Tier 3. Tier 3 would possibly be something like, OK, we need at least a $50.
Uh, minimum, in order for this raffle to be conducted, you know, Tier 2 you need, we need at least $100 for each one of those domains for the raffle to be conducted in. Tier one could be maybe 200. You get you get where I'm going at with that, right?
Could have you ever been to like a charity auction night where like you go you know, different business, yeah silent but also full-fledged like bidding war like in a in a dinner room right. Or you know like at a dinner dance whatever. You know corporate thing but you get people to donate their like you know not grails but whatever it might be to the cause and the cause is X charity that then.
Like a way to get money back straight away. But as we're talking about people in the community, like, it's not just like, yeah, it's more like a marketing way of marketing in, you know what, what do you call it by donating to a charity that way. And then you could document it and whatever, get a couple of whales to bid against it, you know, like in real time, like over a period of time maybe. And it could be like a live auction thing. I don't know, just a thought doing it that way. And it's not
Yeah, I was just gonna say. Uh, Champ, man, I gotta go. Thanks for the waffles. Next time make them bigger. Joshy, shout out to you guys. Weavy. WAVY, my bad. 888 metal like soldier, you know, just shout out. You gotta shout. Everybody that you here, man, I gotta drop. I gotta go handle some stuff because I got another space at about 7:00 o'clock tonight with Novak. So just want to. Yeah, man, the ideas.
I think we got some great feedback and people seem to be generally for it and excited. So I think we get our ducks in a row and figure out how to try one out and maybe give the first one to charity. You know I'm down to like give a couple of my names up and give a percentage like 20% even for something cool, so for sure.
I I like the branding. Um, I like, uh, the whole concept sounds cool, being able to attach a piece of music to your ENS name, right? Um. And it does remind me of the old vibes of Myspace and high five, way before Facebook and what have you.
I yeah, I think, I think it's a good idea and I think it will just come to down to how you attach the two together. If that process is seamless and there's a nice library and you don't have to do much thinking and the tunes are a bit vibey or there's a nice category or however that algo's working. Yeah, I'm, I'm, I'm vibing with the idea.
BV by guys, guys are awesome. I had a question about this color thing because I was listening this morning but I was actually not really listening to carefully and it was the 1st that I heard about it. But this like what is exactly causing the artificial intelligence to?
Almost finding the the notes that transponder the right like sound that you're after you could actually if you spent enough time you know you could probably work that out and I had another idea of that would be interesting to see how they sound to like wedding songs right wedding domains and then if you had a good one you could issue that out of sub domains and people could use it wedding songs for their like wedding dance or whatever you call it or any kind of thing.
Quite well, quite possibly, yeah. Because that's the thing, right? It's like a it's like getting a pack of Pokémon cards. You don't know what you're gonna get right kind of thing until you until you get it. And then it's like, ohh and then you're like, oh, I've only got one of these, but now if you can sub domain the shit out of it.
We get this hand down. So yeah, man, I'll see. You're talking about like matching your names and stuff, right. But have you like started matching or minting like 3 digit? Just like, can you do that just like the three digits across the board or the 4 digits, 100K clubs and, you know, stuff like that. So like when a 3 digit comes around, that person has their matching tone as well for that 3 digit, you know what I mean?
Yeah, like, like, like isn't like emojis. Don't you have to have like, isn't there like so different many styles? So, like, wouldn't you wanna mint like almost everyone of that category? Like, I don't know, I'm just thinking too much I guess.
Hey everyone. Hey, uh. So quick answer to your question about emoji. So we do have the technology to translate emoji at this point, but it would take a longer time to make it sounds, I don't know, coherent. So basically this time we are not going to really release the emoji version, but like in the future for sure we are going to do emoji.
Yeah, it's based on so OK. I'm not from the music tax, so I don't really know the algorithm like how they programmed the algorithm, but it seems like it's based on MIDI. Like basically the shape of your letter or your number digit will be translated into a unique sound, so it's based on the shape. So so that's the reason.
OK. So I take it that similar shapes uh will have similar sounds. You know what you're saying sounds like that and is I haven't been on the platform, so I apologize, but is there any way to hear the sounds before like?
That's a great question. So we did a test net run right like before. Before that we tried to kind of like allow people to listen to their music, um, online. But then it it takes a lot of time for the, you know, the back end to process that. So there will be a long line for you. You need to wait in the line in order to listen to your sound. So that's the reason why we kind of like improve.
The function at this time. So we just give you a couple of simple sound and then you can you get to listen it and I mean you can always update it, I mean like it, it's like one ENS 1E2M this time. But like definitely we are going to improve things like this is just the beta version right. Like we are definitely going to improve the you know functionality of the product so that you can upgrade it and in the future.
Make some type like soundboard like eventually like maybe like you have like a website and have like a a big soundboard for those genres and you click through maybe like a a similar type style emoji or you know something like that maybe.
Yeah, that's a, that's a great suggestion. So we have a very, very basic version like if you check our website, color dot AP, you can see there's like a keyboard and you can play with it. But that's just the basic, like the basic version like I think that's a great suggestion that in the future we will just develop something more interactive so that people can play with it and listen to the sound. Yeah, definitely that's something we would like to do.
Ohh, no, no, man. Uh, pickleball. What's up man? Like, how's it going today? Good to see you again. I appreciate it, but yeah man, I'll probably add Deacon myself, man. Dude, what are you talking about this about again? I just want to refresh a little bit because I'll be talking with him about this a little bit.
Dude, yeah, like that's interesting because I talked to him every day. He don't tell me about this shit. We don't talk about that. But that's crazy because I know he did the Kikuyus and all that other stuff. But yeah, that's pretty interesting. I'm gonna see what's up with that, man. So hey, I'm going to be with the bot out there as well. So definitely when we're out there, meaning we're going to link up and do some things, we're going to talk some stuff out there.
Yo, what's going on? I am hyped as fuck. I get hype. You already know we had this conversation this morning. If anybody who's up East Coast was at 08, right? 8:00 AM is. Is that when you're you're you're up. He has a little space. It's fun. Something that you know refresh the morning with this morning he drilled me on. I was going to have a pitch today. Oh, actually I did have a pitch with a tennis brand. If you guys don't know me, I'm actually a.
But yeah, man, this morning I was like, I'm gonna go talk to this, this tennis brand. And I know them in real life, obviously work with them on web two, and we did a lot of great collaborations and you know, it was a hit. So I was like, I've been pitching them about ENS for a long time. I told this guy I was like and get hyped this morning, drilled me. He basically gave me a mock interview. And literally what they asked was what he asked is like, what the hell is this? What's the matter? Verse?
I got them to, uh well, they will actually buy tonight. I think we're gonna talk about it. I'm gonna send over some jpegs about, you know, with the ends with their logo on it. They're gonna change their Twitter handle to selinko dot ETH because of me. So I'm like, damn, this is this is big.
So I'm, I'm, I'm. I'm gonna pin a post on top if you guys don't mind. If you check out the brand, they're they're big web two company. You know, like honestly, these products. I mean it's almost like Wilson, Tennis head, tennis, Dunlap, all these big brands, they don't really EFF around with Twitter too much. Obviously. The main, I think the main thing is like Facebook and Instagram. So like the fact that this was an easy thing for them to do for me. They're like hey, no problem, let's get this
Their official count. But what this means to me and for those who have a niche if you if you present this right all these other brands started looking Wilson's gonna start looking head tennis is gonna look Dunlop. You know all these, you know Prince Prince rackets, they're like yo, what is selinko doing? And if they do it very soon, which I'm sure they will within tonight they're going to be the first one on that blockchain. And everybody else is going to be like oh, they're Ryan that, you know
Dude, it's it's been a long run, bro. It's been a long run. But, you know, I'm excited. You know, obviously, um, WAVY Shabbat can hype. I mean, all you're familiar faces, man. You guys been here for a minute and the fact that they're giving me an audience. And like I said, I mean, like I said, they're top five brands in the world. I mean, you know, they're pretty big. They have over 21 solid 1000 followers on Instagram. But on Twitter, you know, it's like one of those things, like they're not in
Um Jensen brooksby. The Bryan Brothers uses it. Who else has been in in. So they've been a string company. So a little bit of heads up on the Selinko brand they started. They're two players from Virginia Tech. You know in the US, good players. They started a tennis brand marketing to kids, man. People were sponsoring more like you know, like teenagers, high schools. They were talking, they were doing grassroots shit that we were doing now with ESPN. They're they're doing that mass adoption and i
Turn to 12, turned 18, going to college, finish college and some of their kids are using this brand now. So it's kind of the popping brand. It's not as big as like the name brands like you hear about you know the the head or the Wilson or the Lux Salon, these these major brands you hear like Roger Federer and Nadal, but it's one of those brands that everybody knows about. If you're if you're under the age of 30 in the US and play tennis, you know about selinko.
Dude, yeah, he has arthritis. I'm dude, man. It's crazy because, you know, Arthur Ashe has this. I went to the US open. I don't know if I told you about that. They have their own brand now. It might be not. Arthur. You have Arthur Ashe. Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Ashe but go go look it up. They just started their brand. Like I'm telling selling clothes kind of that urban tennis gear is pretty cool looking. I mean I would I would wear it but obviously a big movement there so I I would hold it man. And if something comes up I know the actual player that's actually wearing it's Francis Tiafoe. He's the top 15 in the world right now. He lives in College Park. I own his name also. So I got him by the balls. But if I had if I had to push the agenda and this is
Yeah bro, I was gonna say once you've got the domain and the deal done, Step 2 is get the brand to put a standalone landing page up. And then already like they've got a presence in Web 3, not only by owning the domain, but they can get brand analytics and what have you and redirect that traffic back to their main properties. So that that would be layer two. And then like you said before, you're carving out a niche for yourself.
In the tennis sports sector, so like, just champion that shit. If you know of the style or template and content they require, think about building like a universal template that you can just do, rinse and repeat with all the tennis businesses and just onboard them like it's cruise control.
Ohh, man, you know, I just want to say congratulations. Dude, you know, I I don't even know who you are, honestly. And I just met you probably a week ago, and like NFL champion saying, man, get up here and talk, you know, you just never know what type of idea you could bring up to somebody, you know? And man, he drilled it this morning. I'm glad you came here and ready. You know, even though I put you on the spot, you came in ready still. And I knew you're going to blow it out of the water today
Yeah, I appreciate literally you know that's my routine. I wake up you know pop on the two that saw his post. I saw that he he's having his face get hyped clocked in. He literally asked me what's going on. I was like digging my eye. I cried. I was like dude, I'm not ready. I was laying back and then I was like alright, let me, let me let me get to this. But I appreciate everybody man. But you know obviously as a community I need when they do the post man. I would hope I would love to get everybo
Yeah, I I see that. Hey, wait. I mean, this is not for me. Like I said, for me, like I just love pitching these things. Like, you know, obviously NFL champ, you've been pitching a WAVY the whole time as far as that's your man when it comes to building. And dude, you rest assured because they asked, like what can I do upon this? And of course, like I can make you a bootleg IPS and stuff for me. I'm not that technical. You are, bro. And if I eat, everybody eats in. This feels like for real. Like t
Bro, bro, this is the thing where it team, we will help you on board at this brand together. Like because The thing is when you succeed, we all succeed and and it and it all comes round, you know like karma is fucking great. When you do good things good things come in return and there's there's not about money this is about like helping you grow yourself dude. So like if you bring them into a space or if they've got a brand already and they've got a site.
Very quickly, between one or two of us, we can grab that code, set up a GitHub, set up their fleek, and literally within within an hour or so. And then before you know it in the afternoon, they're having a cup of tea and Bob's your uncle and they've got a web presence in Web 3 where their domain and then already that initiates the next level of conversation, right?
I appreciate it, man. But like I said, man, I appreciate everybody. You know, I'm not gonna lie. I'm gonna say I'm almost in tears. But like, I'm just hype, bro. Because you know what? This gives me the opportunity to be like that. I told you moment because a lot of people shade. I'm not gonna lie. You know, it's been like at least good seven months of people like this is crazy. Why are you bringing this tennis. I I heard it all, man, and my Instagram algorithm went down. You know, when I starte
What's what, what? What's the biggest question now is like, are we ready to pitch this stuff? Like, dude, you're spot on today, this morning. And even if you know, you probably tweaked it up and you were ready for the next conversation even though you didn't think it may have went that way. But that's how I was thinking when you were talking, you know? So you know that I kind of be like, dude, that I I just love this space and like meeting everyone across the board and just coming in and you com
You know and and what just happened there, you know, with wave and NFL champ come in and let's tweet and blow it up. You know, like that's just natural. And like you said, Karma comes around and people see it and just keep coming in these spaces. Guys come up and talk to please, you know, retweet these spaces, follow everybody in here. You know you got to do the work too.
OK, y'all gonna y'all about to puke here. I have not sold it yet. So. So here's the thing, you know, obviously this brand, you know, they kind of they were the first brand to kind of supported me. And it's like I said they've been very lenient. So it's one of those things, like I told them hey man brother, you know right now, you know I got your name. I'm willing to like, you know, forward it if you're going to use it. If not, I want to, I want to control, I want to help you guys out because, yo
And honestly, it's one of those things, like any other brands, I'd be like, fuck no, Nike, no, you know, things like that. However, this brand is actually more close to me monetary wise. I think we had the conversation with hype. Maybe this pushed forward in good faith and literally I got it for literally nothing, right, because I bought it like.
Yeah. It's one of those things like you know obviously this is obviously they're kind of blind let's say blind side, they understand. They're like hey we're gonna go work we're gonna try this out. If it doesn't work then so be it we'll take you know things like that you know they're they're more like hey what what's what's what's the harm right. Cause for them obviously cost them zero. You know add zero money. So besides just changing their official Twitter account which is the only one that the
And they're all company, like I said, they don't sell shoot, they just sell stripped strings. So if you think about tennis strings, I think last year it looks like around over maybe 2.5 mil or something like that.
No, I'm OK. So I'm a professional tennis player actually. String rackets for Naomi Osaka, Francis Zappos and the Kurios Brian brother Venus Williams so actually string their tennis racket. So that's how I know them for that. I'm not a I'm I suck at tennis. I play. But I'm more of the professional Stringer, actually do the the strings for them.
Yeah, that's what I've been doing. Obviously, I was little, I was almost one of the first, you know, stringers or something who did that type of content on Instagram. And, you know, that blew up. And then all of a sudden you start seeing, you know, everybody seeing that whole influencer on Instagram, right. All the all the influencer popped in like, hey man, I'm a, I'm a best tennis Stringer. And, you know, a lot of people started doing that and it kind of got faded out, even though I was doing
Probably going to web three. This is one girl. Oh my God I've got rest her soul you know she she did very well on that Web 2 space influencer cute girl you know doing her thing but then she tried to to work on the whole NFT thing and that did not work out and I don't want that to be like you know the the face of of tennis you know NFT's and rugs I want them to actually be a part of this and what better part right than ENS like it's it's it's one of those things like if you're going to come in th
So I think I'm, I'm trying to get them to do the right thing versus like man, I see Nike doing that. I see Tom Brady, I see all these professional athletes doing NFTS. Let's do an FT project and you know, they have no idea besides, you know, basically a cash grab, right? And I don't want that to happen. I want.
Well, and again, they they're getting someone who seems supportive of the whole system. You're not trying to screw them over as well as far as you know you know what you got you know what your brand is you know what you produced and you're not a Trump. They're they understand you. This takes time and everything too. I'm sure it's all business. And at the end of the day you know shake the hand and you know just make sure you negotiate what you what you feel comfortable as well. At the end of the
So you just make sure you close the deal. You know the hardest part is closing the deal. Sounds like you're there you know just make sure it follow up later this evening. Hey you know maybe follow with WAVY after here and an NFL champ. You know say see what's up. Maybe they can. I don't know you know but you know that's the connection right there and you know you follow through and you're persistent. You know you're in the space again tonight I'm you're in there in the morning you're you know yo
Um, so price not, you know, I think you were talking about the price. You know, I kind of mentioned them and they were at first, they were kind of once they worry you know. But they definitely asked like so how does this work? It's like am I renting it from you or it's, you know, things like that. So you know, I just kind of kept it. Quasi hey man, you guys been great. Let's kind of push this out first and see how it goes and then, you know, we can discuss this in the future. And like I said, at
Oh yeah, my bad. Yeah, I like to ramble too. So I was like, hey man, you know, I'm just like, I'm the owner right now. Basically. I kind of given the information like how you own ES versus like if you had to rent because they rent their domains. That's nothing. They rented the domains and I asked them how much they paid for. They're like, you know, it's like one of those $300.00 a year type thing for their domain. And of course I think they got off like GoDaddy or some bullshit, like they don't
Yeah, I mean as far as price wise, I I kept it clean like I didn't really mention however I didn't mention like hey Patriots dot Earth got this another brand Nike, you know bigger names obviously and I was like hey these are the price. So don't get too shocked that this might be the price. Obviously for you you're basically like fam right. However, your price is going to be way much different but we never dialed down. But I had told him hey man, they sold for almost 100 years for Patriots. Nike
Ohh 100% man. I mean I I definitely I mean like I said that's the closing part. It's the harder you know it's those conversation that for me I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm a bad businessman I'm perfect in the whole marketing but I just don't like closing. I hate when they talk about numbers I'm just that not that guy and NFL champ I just need you on my in my in my corner there because I cannot like for me like if I see a puppy dog guys I'll give this for free you know I'm I'm that type of guy you know and
It's it's gonna be good the fact you said because I left it on the table it's one of those things like hey I don't wanna do it anything yet let's just see where it goes but I was like hey as this ecosystem you know I said just like how you said I wish I I wish I had you on you know freaking on my my Earpods and be like yo man tell them this the longer you wait you know the longer this is going to progress and you're gonna have to pay more that might put them in the in the quick shock you know th
Yeah, if they have more domains, you gotta pay for each one. It's not gonna be as much like the more you get, just like in gas, you know, it's gonna be a little cheaper here and there. But yeah, there's always a fee.
E-mail attached as additional costs if you've got professional hosting, if you're redirecting any of those domains. So there's there's always what we'd consider fixed costs when you're going through domain acquisition from a branding perspective and that cost or that P&L would normally sit with their technology or the IT team. Sometimes that budget might sit in marketing. So it kinda depends who you're speaking to and you kinda wanna influence.
Yeah man. So it's it's crazy because you know we're talking about domains and stuff like that and wave is correct. Like he said you know, he bought the whole package whatever that go down somebody's taking care of this it. But it's like once that amateur team but it's like it's paying a package deal. I'm sure he's paying.
Ah, you know what it sounds like. So he's got an agency potentially who sees who he's outsourced or if his domain management too, and they're managing the. So this is kind of like, so whenever you're working with the brand, if the domain is being outsourced and it's under someone else's control, effectively you're giving up all of your brand equity because if there's ever a problem or you wanna take everything in house.
All of a sudden they realize, ohh shit, this this brand is starting to wake up and they want to own their brand. What is this that this what is this nonsense? So like, you know, kind of the first thing you want to do is make sure the brand has all of their domain ownership in their own names. That's kind of the number one, yeah.
There it sounds like they've cornered the whole kind of maybe the whole tennis industry and it looked like the tennis industry required some sort of service offering for web domains in terms of domain listing, obviously the location, any competition signing up for membership. So like this exists also in property and real estate, right? You'll have kind of more miniature SAS based solutions in companies.
That provide really specialist solutions, solutions for uh listening your real estate as well as managing your bricks and mortar business, but as well as obviously web and then giving floor plans. So yeah, it's often that you'll see specialist partners like this that will provide those solutions. But you're right champ going going to the source would be a much better kind of use of time, yeah.
I I know how these guys work and think in Web 2, right because I'm I'm that web two guy. But like I'm I'm I'm well in tune with web three. So often these guys would would probably want convincing because they've got a pretty sound business model. They've almost got a monopoly on the ecosystem. So like they don't need to kind of disrupt their whole ecosystem. But for sure they'll be having eyes on web three. So kind of the way I would tackle it is I'd have.
A solution already done in house like UH-4 OX tennis ball, I would already kind of create this solution between us where he's already got that solution made and then it's a case of you got much more equity and asset to be able to show them guys, this is already happening with or without you. Now like you can either be the number one um already kind of assisting helping grow this further because again when you can visualize the website.
I'm proud like and and kind of what I want to say is the solutions already there, dude. They've already got the site. So I can tell you now as an as an old school dev grabbing the code from any public site, saving that and local storage, mimicking that whole website in a local host environment, a couple of pages. It's a couple of hours worth of work and kind of just going through this concept then building obviously putting that onto I PFS and fleek.
And that's a free process. So, like, you know, can we even be a case of storing the code on GitHub, talking you through the rest of the process and getting it live? Like, dude, this doesn't cost anything. And this is what we're here for, like. And you can get that proof of concept through the door.
It doesn't matter if they don't know anything about crypto. They want to know what the Hell's going on here. What is this Magic Ness you're showing me off my website onto our Earth. How the hell did that happen? Like who have you been speaking to in the IT department? Like listen, let's, let's have a chat about that, right? All of a sudden you've opened up a whole there peaked by how has that happened? And I think going in by that angle, it's the cells already done like they they want to.
WAVY, I mean I've I've dabbled along a little bit with the ipsf. I uploaded a, you know, HTML that I you know, got from obviously GitHub and I kind of it's one of those templates that I did, I think I used one of the I think.
Yeah, I think he mentioned that. I went to that website. It it works really great. It was what was it? It was it paint? It was one of those free like easy kind of copy and paste type thing. You you gave me the address earlier. I forgot the name already but.
Yeah, yeah, I went there magic. So you're telling me like somehow I can go into. I mean, I guess I can go into the selinko. So I think the website isselinkosports.com, whatever, I can go there and find you.
Exactly. We can grab their homepage, make an exact identical DNA copy of that home page. It won't be the fully functional website, so let's say there's a log in there and what have you. That functionality wouldn't work. But what I would normally do is I'd grab all of the code for their homepage, and then all of the links. I would redirect those links back to their.com website so that if anyone comes to solinco sports dot Earth.
They're seeing the same home page and they're like, wow, if I they then get if they can. If they then click any of the links, they're still taken to a native experience. They're taken back to the.com. So you're joining those journeys together.
Generally, yeah. So you've got dot link and you've got dot limo. And I experimented with both. You can use either or. I've generally found at least for me, dot limo has been my preference and what I the way I explain dot limo is because it can be confusing for someone like why do you need dot limo? That was the first thing I was trying to figure out was like huh, you need dot limo and I understood the Ethiopia problem with country extension, so the way I did.
Scribe top limo is it's a temporary resolver for you to be able to view Ethereum websites in a browser. And I kind of describe it in that way with the view that, you know, when Google's ready to flick the switch, they'll natively integrate Ethereum websites that that they they resolve normally. So just think of the dot limo as a temporary extension.
No, no. What, what I'm saying is at some point in time and there will be some form of integration, whether it's a workaround, whether it's done in the form of an extension on alternative routing system. Um, yeah. And for me that's going to be an enabler. I mean, it's, it doesn't matter what the narrative in the story is right now. I think it's almost fun just to see how this narrative pans out. In the end, there can only be one solution.
I may take their time man. I think it's awesome. Like like for me I'm just kind of like I'm winding down now I'm just sitting down and be like yo, this is a big milestone. We got plenty of work to do. But like dude this is gonna it's like I said just it's this is actually better than a cell. I mean honestly I'd rather get this than you know selling you know something for like 5 Ether 10 ETH or whatever this this is what I wanted to do. So.
Yeah, alright, alright. This is gonna be phase two. Like now you're gonna buy yourself a property in a metaverse, whether it's worldwide, web 3, spatial, it doesn't really matter. Then you're gonna create an indoor tennis court and within that indoor tennis court, you're then going to showcase all of your tennis assets and all domains. Now we imagine that as a flex and then there will be no one to date that has yet.
Modeled a tennis court or a sports venue internally within a metaverse environment, not because they're not capable of doing it, it's because the requirement today has really been more gallery, gallery, focus and I think that's been kind of the primary onboarding for create.
Have you, have you guys checked out my post? I put up on the birth and that's right there and you know I'm huge into the sandbox and if you do a quick view and like the fact that you said that kind of justify. I kind of did reverse engineering on this, man. I I fucking bought a plot first, then I bought freaking PFP, then I spent money on bull crap and then I.
Yeah man, it's this is it's crazy. But I mean like I said hopefully this gives hope to other people. I mean it doesn't hurt. Obviously I've been doing this in web two and but maybe you're pitching this to somebody if you're in a niche, you know, if you're in Donuts or nail salons or barbering or whatever it may be. I mean literally I had to bug them almost every day. Like literally like every single maybe two or three weeks. And like dude what's up with the universe? Every single post I tagged t
Kid, you know I got long nails dot earth. I'm gonna open up a virtual nail salon and I'm gonna have virtual like manicurists working for me in the nail salon, getting your virtual like long nails on your virtual avatar, right?
I second that now. That was probably so awesome that you got a little gap right now also to maybe think about against these spaces now you probably got another million two ideas because everybody else. And that's sort of like like you said, you're settling down, your adrenaline is not going.
Buying this is a business. First of all, you know, that's what we work for, that's what we're doing. We're here 18 hours a day. So you went, you know, presented it and now you got a chance to breathe a second and maybe reevaluate and they're thinking as well and maybe they're doing some EN.
Now and they're doing their sides and again it's a two way St and you know you you presented right. They're researching, they're doing homework now they're probably talking to their text and what's up? What's up, what's this gonna be and trust me, they'll probably be in a space here soon and why not host your own space for for ten pitch that to them too. Hey, you know, for the community. You know post a space bro. Like get it going.
Yeah, in ox, you know why I'd say this, this really works is because you you've come with like one plan. You're focusing on your niche like you've not come with hey I've got 100 different domain names and I've got 20 different ideas and which one sticks? You know you're really focusing on what you know works already for you in web two and you've you've taken that further. You've you've had a thought process and you know you've you've you've got it to the.
Fine. And what we're helping you do is kind of take it further and help you win year on year. And then the other thing I'd say is like everything we do in web three, you need to think of it as recurring lifetime Evergreen revenue for yourself individually. Like and unlike Trump said, unless you're getting offered a ridiculous amount of money. And don't forget, that ridiculous amount of money is today's value. You don't know what's coming next. All of a sudden, that ridiculous.

Um, you know, definitely gotta play it smart because, you know, maybe you do, you know, benefit by just gifting it to them by saying, hey, I will build a digital world where I could have people come into this part or the tennis courts and you get some royalties by people coming in and they have their brands in there. You know, again, there's other ways to to benefit by, you know, trying to. Not again, everyone wants to win at
