My total collection is 5000, but I've done they released in different tiers to different for different reasons. So that's the only thing. So like my first release is 1000 and then the second release is another thousand. The 1st the 1st 1000 is to buy into the company and their lifetime residual shares. But you don't get voting rights though, but you just get a nice kickback from getting a jump on the company.
My album to the albums already done and I'm just waiting to build some more people. So everybody who's bought into the project so far are like, Yo son, I don't want to share that money with nobody else. Hurry up and it.
Web smart contracts, coding, cooking with coach to learn how to cook through barbering, mentorship, SAT prep, tutoring, sports. If you're an athlete and you need some development in sports, you do that as well. So it's basically a one stop shop for all of the students and helping them get to the next level.
Yeah, Coach in real life, coach football, coach basketball and also do mentoring as well, mentoring, tutoring. I I'm in the DOE, so I'm in the classrooms and I mean I'm in the classrooms with the kids, so I'm hands on with your children.
Yeah what grill wolfs on growing river bends big up yourself for more 3rd and Mike it's it's own. Are you here in New York? So the we're Oh yeah up the project lined up just briefly summer musician to I'm a musical manager but blame is a boutique media house so it like I just just launched my first podcast.
In alignment with my music record because I'm doing an album and the title, the title track of the album itself, Reliance. And to back up that I'm doing a 10 part podcast. The first talk I had with Matthew and Crypto Smart was about money and crypto, talking about just the basic fundamental harmony works or to deal with unexpected expenses, cash flow because a lot of.
You get to that. You have to go to the fundamentals. So we covered that yesterday. It was supposed to be a 25 minute talk, but I just finished editing the video to put it on Spotify, anchor and Google Play and all of that and realized it was an hour and 4 minutes. So it's a lot of info and packing it, but I said that to say blame is a boutique or media ohsan boutique on meeting that.
Think about boutique hotels. That's where the Whitney you stands and the Michael Jackson stay, not the regular hotels, are five star Diamond or whatnot. That's just for the first hour. The boutique is where they mutually pay attention to the the, the the persons need like them, them liquor.
And that's what we're focused on is up Boutique Media also and you're so grounded. So sports is a sports is one of the main things that where it's at for deal with physical health and a lot of these sports are disciplinary sport. So it it it helps.
You didn't know that? I would love to like come over one and one, like short interview or something, something scheduled for 25 minutes, maybe go over that. But yeah, hopefully in the future we can chop up something like that. So I could definitely look like give you a follow look. Look more into year five, toes apiece, like you're talking about with the with the tears that sound interesting to samaga I'm looking into it. Someone can articulate it.
Stuff for the children, for back to school stuff, you know? So I got to be conscious of people's pockets when you, when you're spending and asking people to join, come aboard and lay their wallets and stuff like that, you know?
Go for the first thousand is to build a community within itself where we're all supporting each other. And I don't even like using the word community, let me say correctly, to build a dynasty. The difference between the dynasty in the community I found the being in these spaces people don't have, it's it's a word that they throw around around like a buzzword, you know. I mean, they're not really being genuine when they say we're we're we're going to help you in doing those being the trenches wit
How we're how I'm looking at the NFT because it's a lifetime residual for for off the company, not off the NFT sales off the company. What the company starts doing is to be able to give people the opportunity to invest in something that's going to bring them back.
But we know, let's say, knowledge knows about 10 or 15 credible people. He's going to put them onto the project, but by putting them on a project, he's going to be a holder. He's going to be able to resell his NFT's, claim the token, and say that he already has his ex amount that's needed.
Not to to like me coming to buy buy the the NFT is more of a you know for support the cause because my like the cars minor to look for the arrow I just yet because I I don't understand it so we can't get scammed if you get the message.
So they're going to be learning about NFTS through my company, but the best way to have learned about the NFT is by me doing it and going through all of the legwork to understand how it works, all the intricacies of it. So when I teach the kids about the artwork, because I've been in a lot of art classes, they get the full understanding, right? So now you come in as a purchaser of the NFT, you'll be able to say, OK, I'm buying into his project. I see his his real life. He has real life utilities
At question, I'm I I just came into the space. I know I'm a little late, but I heard NFTS purchasing 10 royalties. So in order to purchase 10, that'll make me a founding investor in your cause, which will enable me to receive a royalty from it. I can't receive that royalty. If I buy one NFT, it's not coded into the smart contract. Or would I have to buy a minimum amount to receive that residual?
It's a minimum amount to receive that residual off the individual NFTS, the resale you can get royalties off of the resale of 1 NFT. That's just how the NFT's work, because of the contract that's already used right? The 7728.
Smoking that, you're gonna get in the next contract. Well, once it'll be verified through the blockchain, of course. You'd be like, alright, great, I got my 10, here's my wallet, here's a screenshot or e-mail or my wallet or whatever. I can pull it up and check it myself. Then we'll get sent another token. It's it's the actual company.
On the on the floor that you cannot go under or you'll get burned, meaning I'll take the take the tokens from you because now you're trying to basically bootleg if that makes sense to you. So if they're selling for 15 then you you want to selling for 25 to get rid of yours.
Oh my God, I just lost it. Yeah I will put it in the doubt and the reason why I don't want to put it in the down. I'm trying to follow exactly what the most high told me to do when it comes to this company. Everybody don't have the same belief in the same.
OK, because it was when I when I came in, I came in a little late and it sounded like the 10 NFT's are, you know, basically you, you and your funding round for your, for your project, you know, but that sounds good.
Yeah. So they're right now they should be at $4 up or down, give or take a dollar because etherium, the rate of etherium goes up and down, right. So I lowered it to four so people in the initial stage can buy in and buy in bulk.
I had another developer helped me bring it to to fruition. So I didn't want to use Telos because when I looked at them cash value for the US dollar, it was very low. So like one American dollar is like almost a, let's say 200 telos for one American dollar so that.
The exchange there wasn't good. Then I looked at the security behind etherium at the time, the security behind Ethereum. Everybody was using it. Not that everybody's using it as a good thing. It was just.
More eyes on deck about the movement of the Ethereum and it was more solidified within within the blockchain. The other ones were still. The other tokens were still developing at the time of me, you know, going through my phases of getting my.
Yes, that was what I was gonna tell you. I'm gonna tell you like, yo, bro, you know, like a theory and don't really give you money, bro. Like, you know, you got Polygon. Who just shoots you money. We live in New York. We got near protocol in New York.
Yeah, you don't need, you don't need to use etherium and the therium, bro. Yo, when when I don't think the gas fees went away. Once the bull run comes, the gas fees are gonna be crazy again in my eyes. I might be wrong.
He was all using Internet in the beginning or using the Wi-Fi. There's certain times when the Wi-Fi is going to be running low until they put up more antennas because everybody's using it during that time period.
No, I'm with you, son. I'm with you, my dear, and I appreciate the alpha. I really do appreciate the alpha. I I can't do like if you've seen the amount that I've accomplished in two years, you're like, how the hell did you do this by yourself?
So that's like the tactic we do and then we have like this little group chat. You know, we put the people who's actually doing stuff in there and then we got the public group chat. Like we like, we separate everything all together. But what I'm doing, man, is I'm creating a power circle.
And it I did the I'm doing the events in Bushwick, because I know nobody's into crypto in Bushwick. Like, yeah, they are, but not that many people. So it's never gonna be a shit load of people. So it's more of an intimate situation.
So like sports initiative, that's always a big thing because like when you go sports that's like you're helping the economy. You know, I'm saying you're you're CDC. Like everybody go love you straight up because you're you're you're helping the kids be proactive and when kids are proactive you already know what the end result is when they become adults. So.
When I when I I started my company, I finished teaching the class about what my company did and I was I got observed by some people who could shut down the an industry that's working with kids meaning.
I looked at during COVID what's the next phases of where I can take my company and sit back and being proactive. I saw the movement of the blockchain, I saw the movement of crypto, I saw the movement of.
We we need to come up, but we need to be smart. And I had a part because I did podcast and I teach kids about podcasting. So I had my own podcast and as well I had an episode of called the Black Dollar.
If you if you're able to do something and create a buzz for your people, the best way to do it is in something that's new, that's coming up. So you just got to be there first. Then you inherit the wealth. As you're teaching people, they inherit the wealth as well.
So that's that's all I was, just being proactive. I've been involved in it, I'll say, for about a year now, and I'm still learning. I don't know everything. I'm still learning how to do certain things and finding out what what things mean is why I'm in a Twitter space is hopping into people's rooms and stuff, and I don't claim to know everything. So I'm always, you know, you say something, you drop a jewel. I got my my notes out and I'm taking notes.
Yeah, guys up. Yeah, I'm just a regular guy trading some crypto. You know, I'm a crypto guy and it's fun to think and to see that you are talking about NFC because I'm trying to, you know, purchase some NFC, but.
But this is not financial advice. Let me make this disclaimer. This is the tomorrow morning show. We're here talking about NFT's grill. He's here, and he's explaining his NFT project. Do your own research. I don't normally do this, but I just sided. Hey.
Most people have everything going through their meta mask, wallet and stuff like that. And here in New York the bureaucracies you know I've had to make for. I've made friends in Twitter, sent them money on the cash app, and they sent it back on my in my meta mask wallet for me so I can get a board, a board. This stuff. I know what it's like. And then I had to find out on a third party and Coinbase.
The idea of decentralization to me is very cool idea of it. Notice I said the idea because as musicians I see where I can benefit versus using the traditional streaming platforms like Spotify and iTunes that I keep saying they after doing some amount of research I noticed they take up to 85% of our earnings. Recently went on my.
Put it up for next two years when I didn't receive that revenue in sales. So versus the blockchain or just to simplify things, I'm looking where you know you're mean that song, whether it's a 50 piece, 100 piece.
Get compensated. I was in a space with the vet and the vet suggested that artists charge 10% of the production cost for their NFT's and that's kind of a good number. So as I do my research and getting like knowledge and try to see which projects to get into, these are some of the formulas that are planning to use to kind of scale what the.
Accounts linked to your first wallet address, right? So you can have multiple addresses and you can go in and buy a whole bunch of stuff and then make it seem on etherscan that you're that your product is selling when it's not. So people have been getting. There's been a lot of clampdowns on that, too. So there's there's monitors going on, you know, just with with a lot of things you haven't gotten caught yet.
I've noticed that. So like you said earlier, just make sure you do your due diligence and and check and make sure that it's a project worth investing in because you're not investing into the project, you're investing in the people.
You know, and that's something that you always gotta remember as well. Like with Nike, we moved, we moved with Michael Jordan because we believed in Michael Jordan and what he was doing and all of that stuff and that success he had.
Definitely cause cause I think, yeah Nelly did raise the question before the podcast yesterday. I think it was a crypto as a secured commodity and just to touch point that is like think Matthew was me too looking at crypto as as a commodity rather than paper 'cause right now I don't know where the bill is.
Business is right. No, they're the ones who is going to determine all these. Well, where are the ones where who's going to determine all these regulation come into play, whether they're going over regulate it or they're going to say, OK, let's do this because this is the behavior within the space and the influence is going to be of such because they already have control over everything. There's no such thing as decentralization if you have.
They were abuse it. Meaning, say, fake money. When you sell tons of weed and your flowers and you make it, look to the kids like, say, money can be made out of hustling. When that is not true, right, you're abuse it. So where them do them regulate it? So when they regulate it and slap you with a 250,000 license and they are nastiness, you can't complain because you're making it look like they're selling. It was the biggest thing and the best thing and the.
More the most lucrative thing. So if people have common sense and realize that this thing is introduced in bills and it reached a Congress, I'm not even an American. I'm a Jamaican Emma grant. Right. But it's not rocket science. It's not Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. Science, rocket science, it's common sense. They can do the same thing that they do, they do with the cannabis market. You know, I'm saying we we was the one that's tribalism and reggae singers who tell him said if you continue to burn.
The herb, we're going to burn down the cane fields, right? And so, you know, if I get legal, so in the crypto spaces we have to take the same approach and show themselves with discipline with no structure. We'll have morals and we're not just looking to rug. I have a rug pool or a pump and dump our people with a call it. That is the behavior. So transparency is one of the key things when we look for some people.
Yeah, this I agree and say yes I can post anything and this and that and that, but no social audio. Give our people a chance to interact. OK, I'll listen to tones. Time validates all people treat the seasons and like I could go on and on and on but what what we we look for within these this whole realm is value and once.
Once you can make sincere value, we don't have 4:00 about the SEC. We don't have to worry about the CFTC or none of them, because the regulations that will come, the people's behavior going to articulate like what should be done. That's just my.
Uh, something you know, here in our country most of the people are very have a negative view on certain digital currency. And if you are trying to introduce to them you're the script and so on and so forth, they will tag you as a scammer like that you're showing up Ponzi scheme or getting that money from there, from them. So.
It it took a depending on how people treat it. I think that is where I go in influence, how it's been regulated, whether they over regulated cause the kids abusing it and both kids and adults. But yeah that's just so many things so.
It it is people, you know, mining the encryption to and getting paid and then that that payment was supposed to be a decentralized type of network payment system. We wasn't supposed to be buying Bitcoin off of Coinbase. We were supposed to be going to people mining it and paying in Fiat and then doing our transaction.
What makes a currency? Currency is the amount of people that use it. And slowly and steadily there's more people on board into Bitcoin. Even if a government tries to outlaw Bitcoin, there's still going to be people trading it, you know? I mean it.
So the only way Bitcoin to me is gonna die is if everybody just liquidates out and says, you know what, fuck Bitcoin. But that's not going to happen. What's more probable to happen is whales market investors are going to come manipulate the market, make it seem as if Bitcoin is dropping and everybody's going to sell off and then they're going to buy in when we're selling off.
Or the governments of the world governments are gonna try to enact their own cryptocurrency that is more controllable, which is etherium. That's why I don't. I don't personally like etherium because it was made by a group of people and it's so centralized they could change the supply anytime they want. They could make up a reason that they etherium reminds me of the FO MC and the Federal Reserve and American politics and money.
Yeah, but but but knowledge, which sounds stupid if we say we don't want to deal with cause, alright, go be their own bridges and your own roads and everything. Then drive on it and like go like what are we talking about guys? What are we talking about?
Alright, blem, blem I. Hold on, hold on. I hear exactly what you're saying, but the problem with our money right now is we can't track where all of those tax dollars go to. So say, for example, I hire A contractor to build me a house, right? He builds the house. I don't know that he ended up using the cheapest set of screws, like it's still structurally sturdy and everything, but he saved $10,000 by buying these screws as opposed to the iron super galvanized screws that I wanted. You know what?
So the technology has to advance and give us tools so that any user can. Yeah, but but again, before it gets regulated, then it takes a behavior, then we'll go, then we'll go regulate it. We see where the SEC. Alright, minute 2 version Sir.
Hold on. But do you need your birth certificate to live and still do commerce? Only because they enacted the rule that you need your birth certificate to get these things. So right now, what they're trying to enact is these rules that lock us out of our cryptocurrency. So they say that, that, that.
I don't know Bitcoin or XRP is a security or commodity as classified in different ways so that they can tax us in different ways. And America is based off of no taxation without representation. So at the end of the day they making all these changes into the dollar code tax code so the big ups could.
And in a placeholder for the value of that goal, it's like I'm I got 5050 gold bricks in my house, I want to go shopping. I can't carry all those bricks. My back is going to break by the end of the day. So I'm going to need something that says, yo, I have these bricks of gold in the crib. I'm going to give you this piece of paper and representation for that goal.
They're creating value with the money that they're printing, but the excess of the Princess creates the inflation, which debases the value of our dollar. So if they're able to change the value of our dollar at anytime, how is this currency?
Currency, how can we have true faith in in what they're doing with the money if they're able to manipulate it any time like in the news right now, the big thing is the Fed is supposed to increase inflation by 75 basis points or something like that. You know? I mean the UN just came out with a statement saying, yo, if you keep increasing inflation it's going to mess up the world economy because right now it's at a a weird balance because supply chain is messing up. So if you increase the the infl
No, but there's always a reason why I'm not too deep into finance and economics like that. But I'm sure the reason why they rate the feds raising it is not because I'm black. There's a reason there's always a why. So if we can really talk facts yet.
And every time it comes time to pay the debt, I raise the the debt ceiling. So $40 turn to $60.00. Sixty dollars turn to to $70.00. But in turn with that, I'm printing myself more money so I could play with.
That whole time area time era just was an example of how easily the market could be manipulated through word of mouth and and interpersonal connections. That was a group of about 300 to like 400 people that say, yo, we're all going to buy and what did they do to the stock? Shot it up crazy.
Yeah, I mean, so it's so easy for the markets to be manipulated. They can't be this that that. I'm surprised that people have as much trust as they do in it as opposed to technology where you could see where every single penny goes to on the blockchain. So if our competing you.
Because people don't trust technology either. You see Mikey and combat you and this not combat but argue with you because obviously like you know a lot of where to have both. And just like I said, I'm not too versed in economics but people like them to understand technology fully just yet the trusted that our meeting.
Because you know, if you don't know about the ignorance to it. So I don't know about this yet. I don't know. They're like, alright, these people don't know about Bitcoin. Let's put all these rules in place. Bitcoin is this Bitcoin is that. It's for money runners, for this time, the third.
But we, you know, I mean, we've learned a little bit about it to know that it's not everything that they cracking it up to be. It's actually something that's good for people that we can use to get off of their system, you know what I mean? Because, you know, they they.
Not necessarily, not necessarily. They do control a large swath of the Internet, but it's it's not completely theirs because information is free for everybody and the Internet is just a repository of information. It's just they're changing to funnel, yeah, they're choosing to funnel people to certain places for information. So it's like you did, you learn that, you learn that, but you don't learn this, you know, I mean, just like in Iran right now, they cut down the Internet over there because t
That's that's true, that's true. Somebody's able to pull the plug. But can you pull the plug on the system? That's interplanetary that if it goes down over here, there's still a replication of it over here. So as long as it's in some place in the world, once I turn my Internet back on, I'm back connecting to the network.
Unless they really research it, they gotta shut down the Internet for the planet and then be like, alright, everybody's a dub. We starting over, you know? I mean, they can't shut it down for everybody. It would have to be like super simultaneous.
And even then and even then, there's people that got stuff with cold storage. So it's like I I got my stuff in cold storage. You got, you still got a Ledger. You could still work well for paper wallets, you know what I mean?
So now your ideas on the blockchain, you know, I mean, people used to go sneak and get an extra can of soup. You can't get that extra can of soup. You know what I mean? They say, oh, you're not eligible for this benefit. You're not eligible. You just cut off and there's no way to get in the system or out of it, you know? I mean.
It's coming soon to America. Think about it. We got the kind of fake version of it with the regular credit, but with the regular credit, they was able to discriminate against people based off of racism.
Yeah, you know, I mean, like with everything that's going on, about to hop on the bus right now, I can't get too crazy, but everything that's going on, just connect all the dots, even the dots that you don't think they can connect.
I tell people to pay me on my meta mask. Matter of fact, before I even did anything with the Internet, I logged into the Internet. I got on a VPN, I got on to different encryptions and I did my transactions.
Yeah, but but but remember alright, not saying that's not possible, you know that is possible. But remember when stream was there the other day? I like him, was saying unless you have one next computer in our country where feeder for our next computer and our next conjurer feeder for our next computer.
Because once you when you turned it into Fiat, right with with with a centralized exchange you did a KYC. If I pay, you blend. If you say your knowledge I know you got $500 in crypto. I'm gonna pay you cash. I'm gonna send it to you from my from my meta mask, bro.
Ever since they made it, that is $500.00 to to do once you pay for once you give $500.00 to somebody or you receive once you receive $500.00 and you have to pay taxes. Now we we took, we we store away from that by using crypto.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. The the the transactions is there, but they don't know it's you blend, blend. Just because you're gonna make a meta mask, you gonna make trust wallet you're going to use.
Hold on. Hold on, guys. Hold on guys. Let me, let me interject real quick. So here's the situation, right? But then you're a you're a KYC user, so you've logged into Coinbase, you gave them your social, your your ID and everything like that, right? I'm I'm a fully decentralized user, so I created a meta mask while it with a fake ID, with a fake profile and everything like that. So when I get money.
I put it in from my Bitcoin, my nearest Bitcoin ATM. Of course. I put a mask on my face, deposit the money. I use that to fund the wallet and then I'll help you. I want to make a transaction with you. I send it directly to your wallet. You know, it looks like a legitimate, you know, transaction because I used the.
Profile identification ID that that seemed real, but it wasn't. It wasn't really. Yeah. You know what I mean. More the liability is on you because they're gonna be like, hey, where did you get this voicemail that has money from? We found out that this this identification was stolen and this guy's been using this account for months to to transfer illicit funds. We see where the transaction with this model. Do you know this guy?
You know, and that's when, that's when my decentralization may be compromised. If you end up telling them my actual, my actual name, you know, if you give them, if you give up the information that they're that they're asking, you know, I mean.
