Trust me, I'm going to nail it, 10 00:00:39.200 --> 00:00:41.880 but it's not going to be now. I always forget something or hit the 11 00:00:41.880 --> 00:00:45.399 wrong button and I got into the music and forgot to turn it off and 12 00:00:45.399 --> 00:00:48.439 play the intro. But I got all in there. So thanks for joining 13 00:00:48.439 --> 00:00:52.320 me. If you're hanging out over in clubhouse from Bull Horn or youtube or 14 00:00:52.520 --> 00:00:58.159 twitch or facebook or Linkedin, I added that as well. So welcome and 15 00:00:58.240 --> 00:01:02.200 appreciate you guys jumping in supporting the show. It's going to be a lot 16 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:06.879 of fun get my friend John Snyder on today may be talking about NBA top 17 00:01:06.879 --> 00:01:11.400 shots, being a content creator around nft's and top shots and things like that 18 00:01:11.439 --> 00:01:15.599 as well, and just kind of dive into his journey a little bit. 19 00:01:15.079 --> 00:01:19.359 And then also got some really cool creator highlights stuff coming up and a little 20 00:01:19.359 --> 00:01:23.400 bit of news from Instagram as well. So anyway, I'll shut up now 21 00:01:23.400 --> 00:01:26.920 and we'll get and get into some highlights. Creator highlights. New Cooking necessary 22 00:01:26.920 --> 00:01:34.079 and new assembly required. It's got to be funck all right. So the 23 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:38.319 Creator highlight today is brought to you by my friends over at Maven coffee companies. 24 00:01:38.319 --> 00:01:41.079 You can go ahead and ditch it old mass produced coffee, you know 25 00:01:41.079 --> 00:01:45.120 who I'm talking about, and get some real small batch Colombian brew. This 26 00:01:45.159 --> 00:01:49.359 stuff is great. This is actually the signature of you're watching this the signature 27 00:01:49.359 --> 00:01:53.680 blend of maving coffee, my favorite blend. So you can head over to 28 00:01:53.680 --> 00:01:59.400 maving COFFEECOM and check those guys out. They literally go work with these farms 29 00:01:59.400 --> 00:02:02.560 in Columbia on a one to one basis. They're not the you know, 30 00:02:02.680 --> 00:02:07.480 no middle guy anything. They're going they're testing the product, they're checking it 31 00:02:07.519 --> 00:02:10.400 out, they're checking out the quality of these farms and it's all small batch 32 00:02:10.400 --> 00:02:15.680 and literally some of the Farms they work with have been voted number one coffee 33 00:02:15.719 --> 00:02:20.319 in the world. So that is pretty dope. In this highlight goes out 34 00:02:20.479 --> 00:02:23.520 to our friends over at across the pond. So this is actually cross the 35 00:02:23.599 --> 00:02:27.919 pond sports and network. I think the guy like six or seven shows over 36 00:02:27.960 --> 00:02:32.479 there now and they just dropped a new one this week called the motor sport. 37 00:02:32.560 --> 00:02:37.840 So across the pond motor sport it's really focus on well one. They 38 00:02:37.840 --> 00:02:40.120 get host from all of the world, but they're covering different things such as 39 00:02:40.159 --> 00:02:46.240 Formula One, Formula E, NASCAR, Indie car, all these fun things. 40 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:50.759 Now I only know what Nascar and Formula One are. I don't know 41 00:02:50.800 --> 00:02:53.159 what Formula E is and it's like the electric I got it. Just listen 42 00:02:53.199 --> 00:02:55.400 to the PODCAST, but little. In fact. I did grow up in 43 00:02:55.439 --> 00:03:01.439 Bristol, Tennessee in the fastest half mile at the time, I remember. 44 00:03:02.080 --> 00:03:06.120 Anyway, whatever, just crack a cold one, makes some left turns and 45 00:03:06.120 --> 00:03:07.039 here we go. It's going to be a good time. So really appreciate 46 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:13.000 everybody being here and then get a little news for you. That's news to 47 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:17.039 me. Creating daily all right. We're going to jump into instagram today because 48 00:03:17.039 --> 00:03:21.879 that's where my friend John Really creates. But first of all I want to 49 00:03:21.919 --> 00:03:25.560 just talk about an announcement that they have made, which is that they are 50 00:03:25.599 --> 00:03:31.360 now going to allow users to tag products and IG Post and they're going to 51 00:03:31.400 --> 00:03:35.319 start with the United States first and then kind of work their way out. 52 00:03:35.759 --> 00:03:38.400 So I think this is an interesting concept. I mean, maybe it's going 53 00:03:38.439 --> 00:03:42.960 to work, maybe it's can turn into a dumpster fire. As most people 54 00:03:43.039 --> 00:03:46.560 know me there, they know I like to help creators monetize. So I 55 00:03:46.560 --> 00:03:49.199 think this is a pretty interesting way. Now I don't know how it all 56 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:52.240 works out. I haven't seen it, but it would be neat if you're 57 00:03:52.280 --> 00:03:55.080 on there and you're talking about, I don't know, makeup or hair accessories 58 00:03:55.159 --> 00:03:59.159 or your kids toys or maybe the microphone. Like maybe take a picture of 59 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:01.960 myself podcasting and now I tag this. Sure you know, Sims haven't be 60 00:04:02.000 --> 00:04:04.960 in the in the post. I don't know if that's how it's going to 61 00:04:05.000 --> 00:04:09.080 work or if it tags right to the brands or to the brand websites. 62 00:04:09.879 --> 00:04:14.039 But if it works the way that I believe it should, as we know, 63 00:04:14.120 --> 00:04:17.040 that's the most important thing then I think it'd be cool if you can 64 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:23.360 take a picture, tag your affiliate link withinside of the picture and then send 65 00:04:23.360 --> 00:04:27.839 people to your affiliate link and they purchase and you make a small commission, 66 00:04:27.920 --> 00:04:30.959 all those kinds of things. I think hopefully that story they're going to do 67 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:34.160 it. And if that is for US creators, who are you know, 68 00:04:34.199 --> 00:04:38.680 instagram is part of our ecosystem. We're putting stuff out there. This would 69 00:04:38.720 --> 00:04:43.720 really, really cool opportunity for us to use. The use that opportunity to 70 00:04:43.720 --> 00:04:46.519 say, Hey, check out this microphone and then you tag sure in it 71 00:04:46.560 --> 00:04:49.240 you're part of affiliate program either like on Amazon or wherever, and then you 72 00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:55.720 can track that data and then leverage that data for a brand deal. So 73 00:04:55.800 --> 00:04:58.600 that's one of my you know, one of my strategies that I try to 74 00:04:58.720 --> 00:05:01.040 use. If I can't get a brand deal directly, try to use affiliate 75 00:05:01.079 --> 00:05:04.920 links. So maybe maybe this instagram update is going to be just what we 76 00:05:04.920 --> 00:05:08.720 could use as creators. I don't know. I mean most of the time 77 00:05:08.720 --> 00:05:12.160 it's like, Oh, who's a benefit in instagram or the brand? Hopefully 78 00:05:12.199 --> 00:05:14.959 it will benefit the creator. And then, while we're on the INSTAGRAM, 79 00:05:14.959 --> 00:05:17.000 note instagram. I know you're listening to me, or maybe you'll hear this 80 00:05:17.040 --> 00:05:21.560 as I say it nearly every day. How about you allow some external video 81 00:05:21.720 --> 00:05:26.480 so I can stream the show to your platform as well, because I'm on 82 00:05:26.519 --> 00:05:28.439 Bull Horn, which is awesome, by the way. If you have to 83 00:05:28.480 --> 00:05:30.439 check out bull horn, if your Creator, go over there. Bull Horn 84 00:05:30.720 --> 00:05:38.800 Dot FM, bullhorn, Youtube, twitch, facebook, Linkedin clubhouse. We 85 00:05:38.839 --> 00:05:43.079 are all over the place, but we are not on instagram right now because 86 00:05:43.079 --> 00:05:45.680 they don't allow external video. Want, want, want, want. I 87 00:05:45.680 --> 00:05:47.079 guess some sound facts, but anyhow. So there you go. That is 88 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:51.879 your news from me. Not really anything special in who knows, hopefully it's 89 00:05:51.920 --> 00:05:56.839 not going to be everyone's pictures is as clickable links on there. You know, 90 00:05:56.920 --> 00:05:59.399 all that kind of stuff. Whatever. But Anyway, let's get down 91 00:05:59.439 --> 00:06:01.079 to the main and I'm going to be bringing on my friend John Snyder. 92 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:04.439 Were going to be talking about N FFT top shots. So, John, 93 00:06:04.480 --> 00:06:09.800 welcome to the show, my friend. How are you doing? I'm good. 94 00:06:09.800 --> 00:06:12.439 How are you? Man? I'm doing great. Man, appreciate you 95 00:06:12.680 --> 00:06:16.199 jumping in and being a part of the show and wanting to yeah, come 96 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:18.439 hang out with me for a few minutes here. I'm trying to just find 97 00:06:18.480 --> 00:06:20.439 the here we go. I can. I want to look at you. 98 00:06:20.480 --> 00:06:24.759 So I lost the screen there. So, man, what in the heck 99 00:06:24.800 --> 00:06:27.279 have you been up to? We were hanging out for a while. They're 100 00:06:27.519 --> 00:06:30.920 sometime last year and then, you know, life happens, disconnects happened. 101 00:06:31.399 --> 00:06:35.399 What the heck is John Sneyder been up to? Yeah, so, I 102 00:06:35.439 --> 00:06:38.920 mean, yeah, we met, probably it's been almost a year, probably 103 00:06:39.439 --> 00:06:43.160 just under maybe, yeah, but I'd quit my job that I was at 104 00:06:43.160 --> 00:06:46.920 for ten years really to become a stay at home dad for the time being, 105 00:06:46.959 --> 00:06:49.600 and so in that time, though, I wanted to figure out some 106 00:06:49.639 --> 00:06:53.480 way to create, and so that's why I got hooked up with you with 107 00:06:53.519 --> 00:06:57.560 podcasting, and it's now, like you said in the Intro, it's evolved 108 00:06:58.120 --> 00:07:03.519 more towards instagram. Just trying to figure it out right, and it's always 109 00:07:03.560 --> 00:07:09.040 changing, and so I'm just trying to figure out what that looks like for 110 00:07:09.079 --> 00:07:12.920 me as a creator, because it's not cookie cutter, I don't think. 111 00:07:13.040 --> 00:07:15.319 I mean, you know, everyone creates differently. You know people try to 112 00:07:15.360 --> 00:07:20.120 copy people and you know there are a lot of similarities, but I just 113 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:24.279 trying to figure that out and what that looks like for me as a creator, 114 00:07:24.319 --> 00:07:28.959 and so I've got an instagram account right now just called the layup. 115 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:31.319 That is the podcast. I have some episodes on you could look it up 116 00:07:31.360 --> 00:07:36.600 and listen to some older episodes, but I'm just trying to figure out that 117 00:07:36.680 --> 00:07:40.680 instagram space right now. Yeah, man, you know, I think it's 118 00:07:40.800 --> 00:07:44.120 I think it's a good place to be, because oftentimes, as creators, 119 00:07:44.120 --> 00:07:46.160 man, I mean you know this, like we're we're podcasts, we're trying 120 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:48.360 to forge out instagram, which trying figure out tick tock. We're trying for 121 00:07:48.399 --> 00:07:50.560 you on facebook, we're trying to figure out, you know, whatever the 122 00:07:50.600 --> 00:07:57.279 next APP is, and oftentimes we're left holding nothing, like with no audience, 123 00:07:57.319 --> 00:08:01.319 no community, because we're too far stretched out. So I actually applaud 124 00:08:01.399 --> 00:08:05.360 you for taking a step back and going what do I really enjoy? Oh, 125 00:08:05.399 --> 00:08:09.720 I enjoy making instagram reels and content over there. So that's pretty cool 126 00:08:09.800 --> 00:08:13.000 then. So has that been like? You know, I know it changed. 127 00:08:13.040 --> 00:08:16.680 do it seems like instagram changes almost daily. Weekly for sure, but 128 00:08:16.839 --> 00:08:20.959 feels like daily. What has been some things that you've noticed that you've liked 129 00:08:20.959 --> 00:08:26.680 about it in then, and then I'll ask you another question. Yeah, 130 00:08:26.720 --> 00:08:31.399 I mean some of the changes like I don't know if this is out everywhere, 131 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:35.639 but I know and my account and the top left I can click and 132 00:08:35.679 --> 00:08:39.120 I can see I can actually make favorites now. So I have a favorite 133 00:08:39.159 --> 00:08:43.600 list. So I basically with my account it's a bunch of nft guys and 134 00:08:43.720 --> 00:08:48.720 NBA talk shot people and NBA players and teams are under my favorites and so 135 00:08:48.799 --> 00:08:52.879 I can click that and just get a run down of that and that's probably 136 00:08:54.399 --> 00:08:58.240 one thing I enjoy right now with it and probably one of the best changes 137 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.360 I've seen so far. And I do what you were saying about the affiliate 138 00:09:01.399 --> 00:09:05.039 link coming, if that is a thing. When you were talking I was 139 00:09:05.080 --> 00:09:09.440 like I hope it's affiliates and then you mentioned it in so I think it's 140 00:09:09.480 --> 00:09:13.000 a hope right now, but that would be an awesome change. Yeah, 141 00:09:13.000 --> 00:09:13.600 I mean I think it would be cool. You know, and I think 142 00:09:13.639 --> 00:09:18.399 there's a lot of you know, fill it stuff out there already, but 143 00:09:18.519 --> 00:09:22.000 it is you know, if when they added the link to to Instagram, 144 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:24.399 with all oh this is cool, I now we can do a story and 145 00:09:24.519 --> 00:09:28.120 do a link in there and all that kind of stuff. So I think 146 00:09:28.120 --> 00:09:31.360 that's a pretty cool move on their part too. So we'll see what happens. 147 00:09:31.399 --> 00:09:35.200 But it's cool that you're focused on, you know, creating content on 148 00:09:35.279 --> 00:09:41.240 instagram now. is now the content that I see from the instagram account that 149 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:46.399 I follow, which is a layup. Is that a hundred percent NBA top 150 00:09:46.440 --> 00:09:48.480 shots, a hundred percent sports, or what's your like, Nich that you're 151 00:09:48.519 --> 00:09:54.679 going for? Yeah, so it's funny. I you as a creator, 152 00:09:54.759 --> 00:09:58.639 especially if you trying to reach an audience and make a community. The niche 153 00:09:58.639 --> 00:10:03.519 here it is, the better. And so you know, I when I 154 00:10:03.559 --> 00:10:07.240 started this with you a year ago, I was all over the place and 155 00:10:07.320 --> 00:10:09.200 I got a niche down to basketball. Okay, what kind of basketball? 156 00:10:09.279 --> 00:10:15.879 NBA. And so now with my instagram, it's like my reels are really 157 00:10:15.879 --> 00:10:20.159 more just NBA news or opinions, but my content, like my carousels or 158 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:24.440 my posts are going to be in FT related. You know, as a 159 00:10:24.600 --> 00:10:28.919 sparely newer creator than in that space, I'm trying to figure out how to 160 00:10:28.960 --> 00:10:33.720 make my reels more geared towards the NBA top shot. So again trying to 161 00:10:33.759 --> 00:10:37.360 niche it down even further. But there is some fun news I like to 162 00:10:37.360 --> 00:10:41.000 share out there that doesn't really have to do with in a tease, but 163 00:10:41.879 --> 00:10:46.039 it just but for the most part, NBA. Yeah, I love you. 164 00:10:46.080 --> 00:10:48.919 Know, one thing I've enjoyed about your channel or about watching on Instagram 165 00:10:50.000 --> 00:10:54.279 is like your reactions and how you're you know, it's like you shock me 166 00:10:54.320 --> 00:10:56.679 sometimes because you're like, you know what, everybody knows, I hate the 167 00:10:56.720 --> 00:10:58.559 Lakers. But then you're like hold, that's little lakers. I don't know 168 00:10:58.559 --> 00:11:03.320 who that was. It Kobe or not? Kobe Bryant, Little Lebron James? 169 00:11:03.480 --> 00:11:05.240 Right? So, yeah, right, and so tell me that. 170 00:11:05.279 --> 00:11:07.519 What was the what was the story behind that action figure? Again, I 171 00:11:07.519 --> 00:11:11.519 don't know if I really remember. I just remember watching it going due. 172 00:11:11.519 --> 00:11:13.320 That's pretty funny, because you're like, I hate the only Legis, but 173 00:11:13.399 --> 00:11:18.120 I got this. Yeah, I mean it was really just about Lebron and 174 00:11:18.159 --> 00:11:24.559 how he basically now is in his own category with over tenzero assist, tenzero 175 00:11:24.799 --> 00:11:28.960 rebounds and tenzero points for his career. He basically invented his own category. 176 00:11:30.039 --> 00:11:35.080 And I I'm a collector of things, and so I bought this Lebron James 177 00:11:35.200 --> 00:11:39.720 like action figure a while ago and that's that's really where that came from. 178 00:11:39.720 --> 00:11:43.879 And that's the other thing with experimenting as a creator. Like I've been trying 179 00:11:43.879 --> 00:11:46.919 different things with my reels. So, like one of my reels I tried 180 00:11:48.000 --> 00:11:50.720 using a green screen. I have a green screen. I did that with 181 00:11:50.759 --> 00:11:54.320 some video on the background and then trying to bring in props and that kind 182 00:11:54.360 --> 00:11:56.919 of thing, just to see, you know, really it's kind of testing, 183 00:11:58.000 --> 00:12:01.080 experimenting to see what what hits with the audience, because, you know, 184 00:12:01.120 --> 00:12:07.519 I spent an hour making a real using green screen editing it with some 185 00:12:07.639 --> 00:12:11.200 video behind it whatever. That was like one of my worst reals ever. 186 00:12:11.279 --> 00:12:13.120 I think it has, you know, compared to some of my others, 187 00:12:13.159 --> 00:12:18.440 and then the Lebron James One, it's my most viewed real and it's my 188 00:12:18.440 --> 00:12:20.799 most recent too. So I think, you know, getting more followers, 189 00:12:20.840 --> 00:12:24.279 more reach it that number, I makes sense. I would go up, 190 00:12:24.360 --> 00:12:30.399 but I don't know. But just that's yeah, yeah, no, I 191 00:12:30.440 --> 00:12:33.159 loved you in this. What I'm doing too, right, I'm throwing mud, 192 00:12:33.240 --> 00:12:35.279 like creating daily like, Oh, who thought about doing a daily show 193 00:12:35.360 --> 00:12:39.320 like that? So dumb, but I always wanted to. So I'm like, 194 00:12:39.360 --> 00:12:41.159 you know what, I'm just gonna do it. I'm just gonna do 195 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:43.679 it. I've been talking about it for a year, you know, and 196 00:12:43.720 --> 00:12:46.919 I wanted to do a different style of show. But then my whole community 197 00:12:48.039 --> 00:12:52.240 is about creators, so I wanted to continue that conversation about creativity and all 198 00:12:52.279 --> 00:12:56.120 that kind of stuff. So you said that you were a collector of things 199 00:12:56.159 --> 00:13:00.039 in so let's let's dive into is. What are the some of the things 200 00:13:00.039 --> 00:13:03.759 that you physically collect? And then I want to get into your digital collection, 201 00:13:03.799 --> 00:13:07.120 because I know that's what this whole topic is about. Is NBA top 202 00:13:07.159 --> 00:13:11.440 shots. So it sounds like this has been an addiction for a lot longer 203 00:13:11.480 --> 00:13:16.360 than when it in FT's and top shots came out. Yeah, I mean 204 00:13:16.559 --> 00:13:18.720 as a kid, if you're a sports fan, that you're going to collect 205 00:13:18.799 --> 00:13:24.159 sports cards. I mean I still had my collection from when I was six, 206 00:13:24.200 --> 00:13:28.279 seventy eight years old. Wow, basketball, baseball, football players as 207 00:13:28.440 --> 00:13:33.480 those are the main ones, and so I mean I've been collecting physical sports 208 00:13:33.480 --> 00:13:39.039 cards forever. And then other things that my wife says I collect shoes, 209 00:13:39.039 --> 00:13:41.480 but I have a lot of shoes, but I don't know if it's necessarily 210 00:13:41.519 --> 00:13:48.559 collection of like like there's some people out there who collect like really expensive shoes 211 00:13:48.559 --> 00:13:52.559 that you could resell for a lot of money or whatever. You know, 212 00:13:52.600 --> 00:13:56.639 that's kind of something I do with in but just not for me. But 213 00:13:56.840 --> 00:14:00.639 it's really like those, those sports cards, and I do collect legos. 214 00:14:00.639 --> 00:14:05.720 I've got some Lego sets that I'll build and put on my shelf because it's 215 00:14:05.720 --> 00:14:09.399 pretty good. Yeah, and so that's really the but that's where like this 216 00:14:09.399 --> 00:14:13.360 whole NPT thing started. I'm I mean basically, you know, within n 217 00:14:13.440 --> 00:14:18.159 be a top shot, it's a digital sports card, is a way to 218 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:20.039 look at it, okay, you know, versus a physical one that you 219 00:14:20.039 --> 00:14:24.559 can hold. And so that's why I like in with sports cards. It's 220 00:14:24.559 --> 00:14:31.759 crazy, when the pandemic hit, for some reason like sports cards took off 221 00:14:31.799 --> 00:14:35.360 as far as popularity and people collecting them, and mainly it was NBA. 222 00:14:35.679 --> 00:14:39.840 I mean there's definitely baseball and football cards out there that are worth a ton 223 00:14:39.879 --> 00:14:43.399 of money, but NBA cards. For some reason, when the pandemic hit, 224 00:14:43.639 --> 00:14:46.759 people were like, Oh, let's get back into collecting NBA cards, 225 00:14:46.759 --> 00:14:50.000 and about that time too, is when NBA top shot took off, and 226 00:14:50.039 --> 00:14:54.200 so they kind of a related in a way. But you know, like 227 00:14:54.240 --> 00:14:56.600 I said, one's physical, ones digital. Okay, got you, min 228 00:14:56.720 --> 00:15:01.480 so now are you seeing is and so well, I guess what I'll do 229 00:15:01.519 --> 00:15:03.000 is, like we'll kind of get into that in a minute. But well, 230 00:15:03.120 --> 00:15:07.320 now ask you anyway. I'm trying to stay structured here, John, 231 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:09.360 do you know what? I'm throwing it out the door. I don't care. 232 00:15:09.360 --> 00:15:13.159 I'm not going to stay structured. If you so. Is there like 233 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:18.879 any correlation between the physical in the digital, like are you seeing like older 234 00:15:18.000 --> 00:15:26.080 baseball or basketball cards, NBA cards, now getting replicated in the digital form? 235 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:30.799 Is that a thing? Really? It might be happening. That's the 236 00:15:30.840 --> 00:15:33.279 thing that I should have specified. Going from a physical card now to the 237 00:15:33.320 --> 00:15:39.360 digital card. They're actually their video highlights. So I mean you can't definitely. 238 00:15:39.639 --> 00:15:43.679 You know, there's probably if there's like a one of one Babe Ruth 239 00:15:43.759 --> 00:15:48.120 Card from whenever whatever, maybe you could turn that also into an nfte kind 240 00:15:48.120 --> 00:15:52.000 of deal. But yeah, with NBA top shots, you know, you 241 00:15:52.000 --> 00:15:56.679 go from your physical card that's just a picture NBA top shots, their cards, 242 00:15:56.879 --> 00:16:00.399 their digital cards, they call moments. So it's a moment in time, 243 00:16:00.440 --> 00:16:03.639 it's a moment in a game because it's Lebron James Dunking or you know, 244 00:16:03.799 --> 00:16:10.919 somebody else with a layup or a block, and so that's where that 245 00:16:10.919 --> 00:16:14.480 that correlates and has changed from, you know, a picture to you know, 246 00:16:14.559 --> 00:16:18.039 and there are in FT's that are pictures, but with NBA top shot 247 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:21.720 it's video specific. Okay, yeah, because you know, I think in 248 00:16:21.759 --> 00:16:25.720 my experience with the NFTS, I'm a there's a guy on clubhouse on this 249 00:16:25.759 --> 00:16:29.559 APP called his name is Gary Henderson. He has draft tower. So I 250 00:16:29.559 --> 00:16:33.360 own a your raft I own it's funny because I'm not a big sports fan. 251 00:16:33.399 --> 00:16:37.159 I don't know that much about sports. But actually there's a I can't 252 00:16:37.200 --> 00:16:38.600 I think this guy plays for the cardinals. I don't even know, but 253 00:16:38.639 --> 00:16:41.960 anyway, he has ann FT projects. I bowed into it. And then 254 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:47.480 I have another one called like, I can't remem like ghetto grannies or something. 255 00:16:47.519 --> 00:16:48.960 I thought it was pretty funny. It's like these little pixel lady grannies, 256 00:16:49.360 --> 00:16:53.480 but they're all just pictures. They're not any video. So so it 257 00:16:53.480 --> 00:16:56.240 does the this might sound like a dumb question, which I told you. 258 00:16:56.320 --> 00:17:00.039 If I ask you really dumb question, just let me know. I know 259 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:03.559 this is NBA top shots. Is it owned by the NBA or is this 260 00:17:03.639 --> 00:17:10.079 like a licensing deal from two dudes in their garage. It's a licensing deal. 261 00:17:10.559 --> 00:17:12.720 Dapper laughs, is who is behind it. Okay, and so they 262 00:17:12.799 --> 00:17:19.519 actually have some other projects they're on. So like they have some UFC there, 263 00:17:19.559 --> 00:17:25.240 with UFC. Now trying to think of the others, but they have 264 00:17:25.279 --> 00:17:29.440 some other other ones there, but mainly NBA top shot, and it's a 265 00:17:29.440 --> 00:17:33.559 license deal with the NBA and it's I don't know. It's really cool, 266 00:17:33.559 --> 00:17:37.359 though. How like the other night, like sometimes there was a moment that 267 00:17:37.400 --> 00:17:41.200 they release that you had to like they have all these challenges for you to 268 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:45.920 get certain cards, but they actually released a moment ninety six hours after it 269 00:17:47.000 --> 00:17:51.559 happened in an NBA game, and so that's the other cool thing about these. 270 00:17:51.599 --> 00:17:55.160 Like if you want to in a physical card, you're gonna have to 271 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:57.799 wait a little bit, right, but with digital obviously you can turn around 272 00:17:57.839 --> 00:18:02.039 and have something of the able, you know, like I think that's probably 273 00:18:02.039 --> 00:18:04.799 the quickest they've done was ninety six hours. Yeah, dude, that is 274 00:18:04.920 --> 00:18:07.319 fast, man. I you know, I guess I didn't even really think 275 00:18:07.359 --> 00:18:11.319 about that. It's like you do have this moment Lebron James dunks on somebody 276 00:18:11.319 --> 00:18:15.480 there. But cool, you know, there's like exciting in then next thing 277 00:18:15.519 --> 00:18:18.960 you know, a couple few days later you got this n FT dropping. 278 00:18:19.559 --> 00:18:26.559 So are those okay? So this company's doing NBA, the doing some UFC 279 00:18:26.720 --> 00:18:30.160 stuff or the UF or all the sports things, or they all moments or 280 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:33.680 they all like kicks to the head and knockouts, all that kind of stuff, 281 00:18:34.039 --> 00:18:37.440 because I have this look cool. Yeah, yeah, I haven't looked 282 00:18:37.440 --> 00:18:41.160 at the UFC ones there. I'd say they I mean, they've only probably 283 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:45.200 been available a month or so. I haven't looked into it. I should. 284 00:18:45.400 --> 00:18:48.160 I don't know if it's I'm guessing it is video highlights, but I 285 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:52.200 just don't know what kind of deals they're doing and that kind of thing. 286 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:57.799 But I wouldn't be I mean there's so many UFC fans. So I feel 287 00:18:57.839 --> 00:19:02.400 like that will take off also. And that's the thing within FT's if you've 288 00:19:02.400 --> 00:19:04.880 been watching the space, like they blew up out of kind of out of 289 00:19:04.920 --> 00:19:11.880 nowhere, right, and so with the NFT space and the way that it's 290 00:19:11.920 --> 00:19:15.319 just kind of blown up, I feel like there's going to be just like 291 00:19:15.359 --> 00:19:18.680 with anything though, like you're going to see some of them make it and 292 00:19:18.720 --> 00:19:21.319 then some of them are never going to hear about again, right, yeah, 293 00:19:21.880 --> 00:19:23.799 like I compared to like when I probably like I don't know how long 294 00:19:23.839 --> 00:19:27.519 ago it was, fifteen years ago, there was a big like fro Yo 295 00:19:27.720 --> 00:19:30.400 craze, right, the frozen you were crazy. Yeah. Yeah, I 296 00:19:30.400 --> 00:19:33.839 don't know about where you live, but here in southern California, like there 297 00:19:33.880 --> 00:19:37.759 was one called peak burry, and when that thing opened, it was like 298 00:19:37.839 --> 00:19:40.359 all these others are like, oh, we can do frozen Yogur we can 299 00:19:40.400 --> 00:19:44.799 do frozen yogurt, and since then there were probably like ten different ones that 300 00:19:44.799 --> 00:19:48.119 you would see just driving to the grocery store, you know, and so 301 00:19:48.480 --> 00:19:51.400 you know, the cream of the crop. It rose, and so the 302 00:19:51.400 --> 00:19:55.160 other ones you never heard about again. They maybe lasted six months. And 303 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:59.720 I feel like within FT's and those projects, there's going to be some that 304 00:20:00.160 --> 00:20:03.680 are around for a while and some that are just not going to make it. 305 00:20:03.680 --> 00:20:06.720 And so, whatever the reason might be with popularity and that kind of 306 00:20:06.720 --> 00:20:08.799 thing, like I don't know if you've heard of like board a yacht club. 307 00:20:08.839 --> 00:20:12.720 Oh sure, yeah, yeah, I mean that's like if you're any 308 00:20:12.720 --> 00:20:15.359 familiar with an FT's, that might be one you've heard of. And so 309 00:20:17.759 --> 00:20:21.559 like that's insane. What prices are going for. Yeah, it's insane, 310 00:20:21.519 --> 00:20:22.559 you know, like some of them are going to stay and then some of 311 00:20:22.599 --> 00:20:26.880 them will just kind of disappear. So so within bea top shots man, 312 00:20:26.920 --> 00:20:32.720 like how do you value? And once again, just to put this out 313 00:20:32.720 --> 00:20:36.960 there, this is not like financial advice from John or myself. If you 314 00:20:37.039 --> 00:20:40.960 invest in these, you know, be prepared only invest what you can lose. 315 00:20:41.079 --> 00:20:42.839 Like there, I don't that's still not financial advice. So don't even 316 00:20:42.880 --> 00:20:47.279 listen to me about that. But you know, if you go empty your 317 00:20:47.359 --> 00:20:52.160 kids college savings count to buy enought's, like you're just an idiot. So 318 00:20:52.440 --> 00:20:56.559 don't, don't do that. But if you are shopping, so now is 319 00:20:56.640 --> 00:21:00.960 jump over to can like consumer side. I'm a sports fan. I know 320 00:21:00.000 --> 00:21:04.359 a lot about sports. I'm watching weekly stuff. I'm maybe even anticipating a 321 00:21:04.440 --> 00:21:08.720 big dunk coming out. Isn't enought. How are you shopping for these men? 322 00:21:08.839 --> 00:21:14.640 Is it just on on this like NBA top shots website, or what 323 00:21:14.920 --> 00:21:18.400 I mean? Walk me through the process, like I don't know anything. 324 00:21:18.440 --> 00:21:21.480 I kind of like sports. How do I go get them? And right 325 00:21:21.519 --> 00:21:25.880 way? Yeah, decide what to buy right and that. Yeah, with 326 00:21:25.920 --> 00:21:29.880 and the thing with NBA top shot. Yeah, so it's NBA top shotcom. 327 00:21:29.920 --> 00:21:32.880 You go on, you create an account. The cool thing too, 328 00:21:32.920 --> 00:21:37.400 about NBA top shot is you can use a credit card to buy an apts, 329 00:21:37.400 --> 00:21:41.400 because I know some of these inn FT projects you can only buy with 330 00:21:41.440 --> 00:21:45.839 etherium or another bit or Bitcoin or another coin, but I guess it's really 331 00:21:45.880 --> 00:21:48.519 a theory ummer whatever. But with NBA top shot, create an account, 332 00:21:48.519 --> 00:21:52.839 set up a credit card, like I just you can use your Google Account, 333 00:21:52.880 --> 00:21:57.200 which makes it super easy, and so you go on there trede an 334 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:03.279 account and there's two real really two ways you can purchase top shots. The 335 00:22:03.359 --> 00:22:07.640 moments. One is they release packs just about once a week. Now, 336 00:22:07.640 --> 00:22:11.440 maybe once every two weeks or ten days, a new pack will come out 337 00:22:11.839 --> 00:22:18.359 and in those packs their three three moments for moments. Usually that's how it 338 00:22:18.400 --> 00:22:22.480 works. But like there's if you're new to NBA top shot right now there's 339 00:22:22.480 --> 00:22:26.160 a starter pack that they help you get started because some of them you have 340 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:30.359 to have certain scores, you've had to purchase a certain amount. But there's 341 00:22:30.359 --> 00:22:33.720 a starter pack right now. It's nine hundred and ninety nine. So this 342 00:22:33.799 --> 00:22:37.240 is what got me into it. was like when I started looking at tease, 343 00:22:37.319 --> 00:22:41.279 I couldn't afford. Some of these have teas when they're like one a 344 00:22:41.359 --> 00:22:45.599 theorium and I'm like well, want to theorium is threezero dollars. Like I 345 00:22:47.079 --> 00:22:49.039 do that. I'm like, Oh, nine hundred and ninety nine for three 346 00:22:49.119 --> 00:22:52.680 or four moments in a pack. I'm like cool, I could do that. 347 00:22:52.680 --> 00:22:56.160 That's feasible. Just and just so clarify, stry jump in here, 348 00:22:56.160 --> 00:23:00.079 but just the clip file. You're saying nine dollars and ninety nine cents. 349 00:23:00.799 --> 00:23:03.559 Yes, for nine nine nine cents. Okay, for a pack. So 350 00:23:03.640 --> 00:23:07.119 if you're just want to get started, and I feel like with Inba top 351 00:23:07.160 --> 00:23:11.359 shot, I mean if you're a sports fan, it's kind of an easier 352 00:23:11.400 --> 00:23:12.799 way to get into it, like I said, because you can use a 353 00:23:12.799 --> 00:23:17.319 credit card to purchase your first set of n a tease and that's what I 354 00:23:17.319 --> 00:23:19.279 did, and so that's really, you know, with my love for basketball 355 00:23:19.279 --> 00:23:22.920 and then wanting to explore this space, it worked out for me. And 356 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:27.279 so yeah, so packs or one way. And like tomorrow they're releasing a 357 00:23:27.359 --> 00:23:33.839 pack. It's Dunks, but they're not really. It's a limited amount and 358 00:23:33.880 --> 00:23:37.640 they're eighty nine dollars. So you know, the price varies from pack to 359 00:23:37.680 --> 00:23:41.960 pack, there will be a certain amount of digital cards in one pack versus 360 00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:45.640 another, and so you can do it that way. And then they also 361 00:23:45.680 --> 00:23:48.039 have the market place where like, if you know, just like if I 362 00:23:48.039 --> 00:23:52.599 have a physical card, I could put it on Ebay or go to a 363 00:23:52.640 --> 00:23:56.880 card show. Well, with NBA top shot, it only lives on NBA 364 00:23:56.960 --> 00:24:00.839 top Shotcom, and so there's a market place where you can go and purchase. 365 00:24:00.880 --> 00:24:04.079 If you have a favorite player, you can go buy a Lebron James 366 00:24:04.240 --> 00:24:08.880 Or, you know, whoever else you might you know, Chris Paul or 367 00:24:08.960 --> 00:24:14.519 Devin Booker. You can go by their moments on there. And so that 368 00:24:14.680 --> 00:24:18.200 those are the two railways to get involved in by your buy an n fft 369 00:24:18.359 --> 00:24:21.720 from NBA top shot. I didn't know it was so easy because, you 370 00:24:21.759 --> 00:24:25.559 know, like you said, man buying other projects, other NFT projects, 371 00:24:25.559 --> 00:24:29.640 has been kind of a pain in my butt. Understanding Wallet, Crypto Currency. 372 00:24:30.079 --> 00:24:33.359 You know what is zero, zero five either? What? You know, 373 00:24:33.400 --> 00:24:36.799 whatever it's like doing all this. You know, talk like I don't 374 00:24:36.880 --> 00:24:40.599 understand. So you can just go to NBA top shots, jump on there 375 00:24:40.599 --> 00:24:44.960 by a pack and what is there? Is there certain levels of packs, 376 00:24:45.039 --> 00:24:47.359 like do you know what's coming in the pack or is it like a mystery 377 00:24:47.400 --> 00:24:51.240 box? UH, yeah, on the website they'll kind of list kind of 378 00:24:51.240 --> 00:24:55.640 what's in it in some of the top moments in it. But in a 379 00:24:55.720 --> 00:24:57.839 way, though, it is like like if you go to a card shop 380 00:24:57.880 --> 00:25:02.160 and buy a package of cards that has fifteen cards in it, you don't 381 00:25:02.160 --> 00:25:06.039 know where you're going to get true, and it's similar with these two. 382 00:25:06.079 --> 00:25:08.839 And so you know, just like with physical cards, there could be like 383 00:25:08.880 --> 00:25:15.519 a we could daunch it card and it's one of fifteen cards in the world 384 00:25:15.559 --> 00:25:18.079 and you can maybe you get that. Well, with like NBA top shot, 385 00:25:18.119 --> 00:25:22.119 so like they did like an Allstar pack. Or just as an example, 386 00:25:22.119 --> 00:25:26.079 I'm not going to get the numbers right, but they have they have 387 00:25:26.240 --> 00:25:32.400 legendary. So in all the if they really say they release thirtyzero packs, 388 00:25:32.599 --> 00:25:38.559 there would only be ninety nine legendary cards in those thirtyzero packs. So that's 389 00:25:38.559 --> 00:25:42.240 where the value increases, right, and then you have rare. So like 390 00:25:42.279 --> 00:25:45.799 they are rare, would be like there would be five hundred moments in those 391 00:25:45.799 --> 00:25:52.440 packs. And then you have common and like limited edition, and so like 392 00:25:52.519 --> 00:25:59.319 common there would be over sixtyzero. So gotch UK so, like I opened 393 00:25:59.319 --> 00:26:03.400 a pack like this was probably a month ago, and I got two of 394 00:26:03.400 --> 00:26:06.279 the same guy rudy go berry plays from the Utah Jazz. I got the 395 00:26:06.319 --> 00:26:11.720 exact same play the same moment and like really like so in that kind that 396 00:26:11.839 --> 00:26:18.240 happens rarely in with physical cards to but it really happens on top shot. 397 00:26:18.279 --> 00:26:19.720 But it happened to me. And so, you know, I think I 398 00:26:19.839 --> 00:26:23.640 paid. I think I paid fourteen ninety nine and felt fourteen dollars and nine 399 00:26:23.680 --> 00:26:26.640 cents, or nine dollars and nine since that pack and it came with for 400 00:26:26.960 --> 00:26:30.319 so I was able to sell one of those rudy go bears for like three 401 00:26:30.319 --> 00:26:37.000 dollars. So I kind of yeah, like so in that way you you 402 00:26:37.039 --> 00:26:40.160 know, evens out and if you're going to sell and not. But, 403 00:26:40.240 --> 00:26:42.680 like you said before, there's no I'm financial advice out, like I have 404 00:26:42.720 --> 00:26:45.599 no financial advice for you with these, for me, because it started as 405 00:26:45.599 --> 00:26:51.599 a collector, like I wasn't dying and to make millions of dollars. Yeah, 406 00:26:52.000 --> 00:26:53.880 I was buying them because I wanted to collect them, and so, 407 00:26:55.240 --> 00:26:56.519 you know, I have made some money, because you do get hit, 408 00:26:57.119 --> 00:27:00.559 just like with a physical pack, you do like I had. I've gotten 409 00:27:00.599 --> 00:27:04.119 a couple that I've been able to soul sell. So what's your one of 410 00:27:04.119 --> 00:27:07.480 the you get me, peek man, because you know, one of my 411 00:27:07.640 --> 00:27:11.559 hobbies when I'm in the states as I like to go to thrift stores and 412 00:27:11.599 --> 00:27:15.359 find products and flip them just as for fun, right. It's so what 413 00:27:15.440 --> 00:27:18.519 has been the biggest like surprise when that you've had, if you don't care 414 00:27:18.559 --> 00:27:22.920 to share? Yeah, I'm trying to go back through here and see real 415 00:27:23.000 --> 00:27:26.599 quil. Tell me a million bucks. I'm going to start. I'm trying 416 00:27:26.640 --> 00:27:29.880 to bottle money. So No, no, I would say most I made 417 00:27:29.880 --> 00:27:33.400 on one was probably about, I think stay it was sixty dud. I 418 00:27:33.440 --> 00:27:37.359 mean that's pretty good if you're paying fifteen, fourteen, fifteen bucks, you 419 00:27:37.359 --> 00:27:41.000 know, ten fifteen bucks or whatever, and then you're make sixty bucks off 420 00:27:41.000 --> 00:27:45.000 one of those cards, like that's pretty cool. That's dough. Yeah, 421 00:27:45.039 --> 00:27:47.480 and yeah, and it is like hit or miss. Like I said, 422 00:27:47.519 --> 00:27:52.920 it was actually was a forty mach stress, but the reason it sold for 423 00:27:52.920 --> 00:27:59.200 forty because was because the serial number was so low. There were Twelvezero of 424 00:27:59.240 --> 00:28:03.400 that moment and I was with cerial number I got was number forty four, 425 00:28:03.920 --> 00:28:08.359 oh, guys, so them, so, because the lower also the better. 426 00:28:08.400 --> 00:28:11.640 So that's how that's why I like people like well, I can just 427 00:28:11.680 --> 00:28:17.200 go watch this, this highlight on ESPN or nbacom or youtube. It's like, 428 00:28:17.279 --> 00:28:19.240 yeah, you can, but you own it because you have a serial 429 00:28:19.319 --> 00:28:23.240 number attached to it, and so that's how you know that that's yours, 430 00:28:23.240 --> 00:28:29.880 like nobody else has that number. Forty for like I had it, I 431 00:28:30.039 --> 00:28:33.599 sold it to somebody else, and so it's all serialized, and so that's 432 00:28:33.599 --> 00:28:36.720 the other way they keep track of it. That you can't like they can't 433 00:28:36.720 --> 00:28:41.680 be forged, they can't you can't fabricate your own. So it's pretty fenced 434 00:28:41.720 --> 00:28:47.680 in. Of how how it's done. And like you're what's the word I'm 435 00:28:47.680 --> 00:28:51.759 looking for, but like the way you're protected. And so with your assets, 436 00:28:51.799 --> 00:28:53.279 I guess. Yeah, makeause. I guess it's all in it. 437 00:28:53.400 --> 00:28:57.240 Is it all in the blockchain, even though you're paying cash? is or 438 00:28:57.279 --> 00:29:02.240 they have their own? YEA, yeah, so they do have like with 439 00:29:02.359 --> 00:29:06.000 Dapper labs, you can't there are dapper coins with it, and so okay, 440 00:29:06.400 --> 00:29:08.880 but there's is on flow block chain. So it's built on flow. 441 00:29:10.160 --> 00:29:12.440 I don't know. If you've heard of that, but it's just a blockchain, 442 00:29:12.519 --> 00:29:15.039 and so they make a shine. I was look at their website. 443 00:29:15.039 --> 00:29:18.920 There's actually a lot of things they do. I honestly haven't heard of the 444 00:29:18.920 --> 00:29:25.359 ones that they're involved with as much as like NBA top shot. But so 445 00:29:25.559 --> 00:29:30.279 yeah, so flow block chain is where Dapper does their thing, and so 446 00:29:30.119 --> 00:29:33.519 that's pretty cool, man. So do you have to like when you're sitting 447 00:29:33.559 --> 00:29:37.920 all this up, you setting up a flow account or is that part of 448 00:29:37.960 --> 00:29:41.640 your NBA top shots like set up process? Yeah, that's a great question. 449 00:29:41.720 --> 00:29:44.759 Yeah, it's all part of the setup process. So that and that's 450 00:29:44.799 --> 00:29:45.960 the other thing. Like I again, I mean I've said this a few 451 00:29:45.960 --> 00:29:49.119 times, but they just made it so easy. Yeah, that's what somebody 452 00:29:49.119 --> 00:29:52.000 in your count when the chat was saying that their friends with some of the 453 00:29:52.039 --> 00:29:56.960 people over a dapper labs and they're making it really, really easy for people 454 00:29:56.000 --> 00:30:00.920 to come in and spend money invest and it. So yeah, man, 455 00:30:00.039 --> 00:30:03.519 school. Yeah, which is a win win right. They're making I mean 456 00:30:03.559 --> 00:30:07.720 in NBA top shot they've made so much money and so much money has been 457 00:30:07.759 --> 00:30:12.519 exchanged between collectors and so no, it's really cool what they're doing and the 458 00:30:12.519 --> 00:30:18.240 ease of use is. It's awesome. Yeah, man, that's cool. 459 00:30:18.240 --> 00:30:22.079 Well, I love it that you are want to. I see the excitement 460 00:30:22.079 --> 00:30:23.079 on your face. John, I've done you for a while, you know. 461 00:30:23.079 --> 00:30:26.319 I know we've been in brainstorming sessions were it's like, okay, what's 462 00:30:26.319 --> 00:30:30.759 my content? What's my content? What's my content in you know, like 463 00:30:30.799 --> 00:30:33.640 even talking about the process of being a content creator, I could tell that 464 00:30:33.680 --> 00:30:36.759 you're, you know, just on screen. You're like, okay, this 465 00:30:36.799 --> 00:30:38.319 is a cool conversation, I'm kind of enjoying it. But the minute we 466 00:30:38.319 --> 00:30:41.319 switched over, I was like, Mba, top shots like you just like 467 00:30:41.440 --> 00:30:45.319 came on and I'm like, Oh, this is what I'm talking about, 468 00:30:45.319 --> 00:30:47.240 you know. You know, I want to point that out because I think 469 00:30:47.240 --> 00:30:51.000 people who are watching and listening, it's like I had a guests on early 470 00:30:51.160 --> 00:30:53.160 this week, Nicki Marie, and she, you know, came like Tick 471 00:30:53.240 --> 00:30:57.359 Tock, almost two million followers on tick tock, and she literally credited all 472 00:30:57.400 --> 00:31:02.240 that to just like being herself and showing up as herself. And so, 473 00:31:03.240 --> 00:31:07.240 and I love it that you are so into one sports, which I knew 474 00:31:07.279 --> 00:31:10.440 that, and now you rearrange your office. But if somebody would see the 475 00:31:10.440 --> 00:31:14.119 the other shot that I used to see all the time is like this guy 476 00:31:14.200 --> 00:31:17.920 is the guy when it comes to sports. So and this has been this 477 00:31:17.960 --> 00:31:21.039 has been pretty fun. So what else am I missing? Like we've talked 478 00:31:21.079 --> 00:31:23.359 about what NBA top shot is, we talked about how how easy they are 479 00:31:23.400 --> 00:31:27.799 to purchase them, and you're being a content creator right now educating me. 480 00:31:27.839 --> 00:31:32.200 So hopefully some other people educate what it is. Anything I've left out of 481 00:31:32.240 --> 00:31:37.039 this? I mean those are the main things. Like, like I said 482 00:31:37.079 --> 00:31:41.000 it again, it's easy to create an account if you're just creating. They 483 00:31:41.000 --> 00:31:47.160 make it even easier because you can get a starter pack right away. You 484 00:31:47.200 --> 00:31:49.599 know, they had they're all over the place on twitter, instagram, they 485 00:31:49.640 --> 00:31:53.359 have a discord channel, which their discord is. I'm not in a lot 486 00:31:53.359 --> 00:31:59.119 of discords, but the resources they have for their discord channel is amazing to 487 00:31:59.279 --> 00:32:02.759 with all the resources. There's web, there's links for like market places to 488 00:32:02.799 --> 00:32:07.880 see you can't go see like where you are as a collector. Oh so, 489 00:32:08.000 --> 00:32:14.599 like I'm in the top eleven percent and then so then there's some that 490 00:32:14.599 --> 00:32:19.279 are like, you know, zero point one percent of collectors because they either 491 00:32:19.799 --> 00:32:22.119 and that's the other thing too. I don't know how, like they have 492 00:32:22.200 --> 00:32:27.240 tons of moments that they purchased or that they've got from the market place, 493 00:32:27.480 --> 00:32:30.319 but it's like, man, I don't know where some of the like some 494 00:32:30.359 --> 00:32:34.640 people have like six hundred moments or whatever it might be, and I'm like 495 00:32:34.720 --> 00:32:38.319 I have forty seven. I probably had like seventy, but I've sold, 496 00:32:38.440 --> 00:32:43.640 sold, so on and so. But like that's the other crazy thing is 497 00:32:43.680 --> 00:32:46.960 what what NBA top shot is doing and what dapper labs is doing with that 498 00:32:47.200 --> 00:32:52.759 is they're just making it easy for people to make, to collect and just 499 00:32:52.839 --> 00:32:55.680 like with anything else, it's kind of in a way like hitting them, 500 00:32:55.759 --> 00:33:00.319 hitting the lottery if you get one of those legendary whatever, because I don't 501 00:33:00.319 --> 00:33:04.400 know, you can see top sales and the top sale on there is a 502 00:33:04.480 --> 00:33:09.759 Lebron James. It's but it's also the other thing that helps with making money 503 00:33:09.799 --> 00:33:15.119 is if you get like a serial number that's also the players number. So 504 00:33:15.319 --> 00:33:21.160 Lebron James is no twenty three. The top sale was a number twenty three 505 00:33:21.240 --> 00:33:24.279 serial number out of probably seventy or ninety nine, and it's sold for two 506 00:33:24.400 --> 00:33:30.559 hundred and thirtyzerous day. Is that the most expensive NBA top shot. So 507 00:33:30.960 --> 00:33:34.839 yeah, Dang, yeah, and so that's the thing. There is money 508 00:33:34.880 --> 00:33:38.400 to be made, but it's it's in a way like winning the lottery to 509 00:33:38.480 --> 00:33:42.279 if you're going to make that kind of money right, like you can make 510 00:33:42.359 --> 00:33:46.160 little money here there, but to hit like that is just saying. So 511 00:33:46.279 --> 00:33:50.920 people are over in their discord community, because I know I'm, you know, 512 00:33:50.920 --> 00:33:54.680 I'm following some enought projects and it seems like the value really comes when 513 00:33:54.799 --> 00:34:00.400 more people agree that you know that they're they're in factuated with the project. 514 00:34:00.480 --> 00:34:05.200 I mean to be honest, it's not. It's kind of like, okay, 515 00:34:05.279 --> 00:34:07.480 cool, we're we all agree that this is valuable. We're all pretty 516 00:34:07.519 --> 00:34:10.840 excited about it. It means the same reason, like a Honda Element that 517 00:34:10.920 --> 00:34:14.840 my wife and I just bought, the second one this year, so expensive 518 00:34:14.920 --> 00:34:17.880 because they don't make him anymore. Everybody wants on. There's like this cult 519 00:34:19.000 --> 00:34:22.679 community surrounded by home, and I'm kind of seeing this in these projects that 520 00:34:22.719 --> 00:34:27.159 I'm a part of. Is that this true for NBA top shots as well? 521 00:34:27.239 --> 00:34:30.639 you seeing just like fit fanatics, for lack of a better term. 522 00:34:31.400 --> 00:34:36.719 Yeah, yeah, there definitely are. In the way that they're doing it, 523 00:34:36.760 --> 00:34:38.760 like they'll do some things, like last year, I can't remember what 524 00:34:38.800 --> 00:34:43.159 game was, but if you are a collector, you were and bought like 525 00:34:43.159 --> 00:34:47.599 like that. They said they do these challenges where, if you like it 526 00:34:49.000 --> 00:34:52.960 a whole pack, like if there's seventy moments in a pack and you get 527 00:34:52.000 --> 00:34:57.119 all seventy, then it kind of bumps you up to be eligible to do 528 00:34:57.199 --> 00:35:00.599 something else or to get your name entered to go to a playoff game and 529 00:35:00.639 --> 00:35:05.519 sit in the NBA top shot booth. So there's definitely fandom around it. 530 00:35:05.800 --> 00:35:08.039 Something else that they just did in the last month. I wanted to hit 531 00:35:08.159 --> 00:35:14.119 on this because this is insane. They are doing a thing for NBA all 532 00:35:14.159 --> 00:35:17.840 start. It's called the NBA All Star Vip Pass, and what they're doing 533 00:35:17.880 --> 00:35:22.239 is they're releasing an NFT for every team. So there's one enough t for 534 00:35:22.280 --> 00:35:25.840 the Lakers, one and ft for the warriors, you know, every single 535 00:35:25.880 --> 00:35:30.840 team. And with that, though, you get five years of getting to 536 00:35:30.880 --> 00:35:36.679 go to the NBA All star weekend and you get two tickets for like every 537 00:35:36.719 --> 00:35:39.039 event for the next five years. Wow. So it's an auction right, 538 00:35:39.039 --> 00:35:43.880 wow, but it's in so it's not like opening a pack and hitting like 539 00:35:43.960 --> 00:35:45.239 you know, like Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory, that you hit that 540 00:35:45.280 --> 00:35:52.239 golden ticket. It's not that auction. And so like one of the like, 541 00:35:52.360 --> 00:35:55.239 I don't know what they're all selling, Oh, for over k today. 542 00:35:55.400 --> 00:36:00.239 So every single one I've seen. I don't think there may have been 543 00:36:00.239 --> 00:36:05.800 one under under there, but they're all like like even the Oklahoma City. 544 00:36:05.800 --> 00:36:07.360 I'm a huge Kaima city feather fan, and I'm like, man, that 545 00:36:07.360 --> 00:36:10.119 would be awesome to have, but it I just saw, I just ended 546 00:36:10.159 --> 00:36:16.840 in fifty fivezero. And so, I mean, if I feel like that's 547 00:36:16.840 --> 00:36:21.400 a great opportunity for whoever got that, like they get to, you know, 548 00:36:21.480 --> 00:36:23.039 go to NBA All star weekend. They're going to have all these other 549 00:36:23.079 --> 00:36:27.440 perks with it, and so, yeah, you know, they did that 550 00:36:27.519 --> 00:36:30.800 this year, and so they're I think that's that's a huge thing. And 551 00:36:30.920 --> 00:36:37.440 I just tells you that there are not only NBA fans but NBA talk shot 552 00:36:37.480 --> 00:36:40.400 collectors that want to get there, you know, getting the game. And 553 00:36:40.480 --> 00:36:45.360 so, yeah, you spending that kind of cash, then you must like 554 00:36:45.480 --> 00:36:47.719 them. Yeah, man, that's that's crazy. What you know of sports 555 00:36:47.719 --> 00:36:52.039 has always been that way. I mean ever since I was a kid and 556 00:36:52.119 --> 00:36:55.360 knew what sports was like. People are or super fans and it's all about 557 00:36:55.400 --> 00:36:58.880 that community really, and that's what I'm telling somebody the other day because they're 558 00:36:58.880 --> 00:37:01.199 like, I just don't understand sports. I'm like, I don't watch sports, 559 00:37:01.199 --> 00:37:04.719 like I'm not like in front of my tv every time something comes on, 560 00:37:04.800 --> 00:37:07.800 but I get it and it's community and that's what it does. Same 561 00:37:07.800 --> 00:37:10.400 thing with content creation, Sathy, with everything. It's like we rally around 562 00:37:10.440 --> 00:37:15.199 podcasting, we rally around Instagram, we rally around, you know, being 563 00:37:15.239 --> 00:37:19.639 a live streamer or whatever, and it's really just an excuse to hang out 564 00:37:19.679 --> 00:37:22.159 with people and create that community. So, John, for you and your 565 00:37:22.159 --> 00:37:28.440 content creation and building phase, and I know you're you're on the road right 566 00:37:28.480 --> 00:37:30.119 now and you're going, okay, I'm going this way, I'm going this 567 00:37:30.159 --> 00:37:32.679 way. You're kind of figuring that out. But as far as like in 568 00:37:32.880 --> 00:37:37.440 FT's is there, do you have any visions of like or dreams of being 569 00:37:37.440 --> 00:37:42.000 like a project owner, like starting your own ft project, because you seems 570 00:37:42.039 --> 00:37:44.440 like you're pretty passionate about it, which I know you know, jump into 571 00:37:44.440 --> 00:37:46.519 the sports arena would be tough with licensing and all that stuff, but just 572 00:37:46.559 --> 00:37:51.480 in general, maybe you draw your own caricatures of Lebron and sell them or 573 00:37:51.519 --> 00:37:57.400 something? Right? Yeah, no, I definitely thought about it. This 574 00:37:57.480 --> 00:37:59.599 is going to sound funny and bad, but I'm like, man, I 575 00:37:59.639 --> 00:38:02.320 should take my kids drawings and make those into n FT's, right. Yeah, 576 00:38:04.679 --> 00:38:08.480 because like with kids drawings that you like, ninety percent of time I'm 577 00:38:08.519 --> 00:38:13.360 like that's so awesome and it's like a one of one or whatever. And 578 00:38:13.400 --> 00:38:15.760 so I don't know, I thought about that. Yeah, I don't know. 579 00:38:15.800 --> 00:38:19.719 I haven't much thought about it with basketball because, like you said, 580 00:38:19.760 --> 00:38:22.800 with NBA and licensing and all that might I don't know where that would go. 581 00:38:22.840 --> 00:38:25.679 But it would be definitely something to be on that side of it, 582 00:38:25.679 --> 00:38:30.360 though, to go through the process. I think it would be worth learning, 583 00:38:30.480 --> 00:38:34.280 especially if in Fte's are your thing, you know. And Yeah, 584 00:38:34.360 --> 00:38:37.239 you know, that's the thing with my instagram account, like I think with 585 00:38:37.320 --> 00:38:42.039 that it's like showing the journey of doing something right, is gets people involved, 586 00:38:42.039 --> 00:38:45.440 but then also showing how it's done and then connecting that way. And 587 00:38:45.519 --> 00:38:51.119 so I think with you know, with mine, it's like I want to 588 00:38:51.199 --> 00:38:54.480 educate people on nfts and so trying to, like I said, trying to 589 00:38:54.480 --> 00:38:58.800 figure out do I do that in reals? Do you do that in carousels? 590 00:38:58.880 --> 00:39:00.760 And you know, as a creator again, like we talked about like 591 00:39:00.800 --> 00:39:04.960 that, it's just experimenting and what works and what doesn't work. And that's 592 00:39:04.960 --> 00:39:07.559 a cool thing about instagram or wherever you do it, is you can just 593 00:39:07.599 --> 00:39:10.599 ask your audience. Yeah, right, and ask him and I'll feel like 594 00:39:10.840 --> 00:39:15.239 no, yeah, do it in carousels or doing a post and put a 595 00:39:15.239 --> 00:39:20.159 link in the bio or whatever, and so that's the other cool thing about 596 00:39:20.239 --> 00:39:22.039 the community aside of it. Yeah, man, it's all being you know, 597 00:39:22.039 --> 00:39:25.039 it's all it's social media. So we're talking about it earlier in a 598 00:39:25.039 --> 00:39:28.719 conversation and somebody was like, yeah, I don't know what to do on 599 00:39:28.760 --> 00:39:32.480 social media. M be social, like go and find other people's pages and 600 00:39:32.480 --> 00:39:38.039 communities and all this stuff and start really contributing to those places and stuff, 601 00:39:38.079 --> 00:39:42.719 you know, helping those people build a community that you want, and that's 602 00:39:42.719 --> 00:39:45.039 where you succeed, and that's what I've seen in the podcasting world, live 603 00:39:45.079 --> 00:39:49.519 streaming world. I'm going to be in a part of these communities, and 604 00:39:49.519 --> 00:39:52.039 then people go, Oh, I like your style, like how you do 605 00:39:52.079 --> 00:39:53.519 stuff, I like this, I like the you know whatever, and then 606 00:39:53.559 --> 00:39:58.599 they become a part of my circle and my community as well. So, 607 00:39:59.480 --> 00:40:01.320 man, I love the journey you're on, John. I appreciate you come 608 00:40:01.360 --> 00:40:05.800 on here and, when talking about your Creator Journey, being vulnerable and saying, 609 00:40:05.840 --> 00:40:07.960 Hey, I'm I'm figuring it out, because you know, a lot 610 00:40:07.039 --> 00:40:09.960 of people just put up a facade of like Oh, I get it all, 611 00:40:10.000 --> 00:40:14.000 figured it out, you know. But it is a process, dude. 612 00:40:14.000 --> 00:40:16.679 It is work, it is grinding daily, it is going, okay, 613 00:40:16.719 --> 00:40:19.599 I'm going to do this idea. Wait, wait, I'm going to 614 00:40:19.639 --> 00:40:22.559 pivot, I'm going to do this idea. So, man, I'm glad 615 00:40:22.559 --> 00:40:27.840 you're listened to your being Super Selfaware, leaning into who you are and who 616 00:40:27.880 --> 00:40:30.360 you want to be and been helping people with this space, because there's huge 617 00:40:30.360 --> 00:40:36.760 opportunity here. So I'll put all of your information in instagram handle in the 618 00:40:36.760 --> 00:40:39.480 show notes, and that way when people listen or watch, they can connect 619 00:40:39.519 --> 00:40:42.840 with the man. So anything else that you want to leave go on. 620 00:40:42.960 --> 00:40:46.239 It's with before we dip out of here. No, I mean I would 621 00:40:46.239 --> 00:40:50.519 say just you know, creating daily, right, and so I think that's 622 00:40:50.559 --> 00:40:53.639 an awesome name for your show. And the other thing with creating is, 623 00:40:53.679 --> 00:40:57.400 like you're saying, like with the experimenting and all that, and too, 624 00:40:57.880 --> 00:41:01.159 but be yourself because that's what people want to see and that's who you know, 625 00:41:01.280 --> 00:41:05.000 who you are, right. Don't try to be somebody else, just 626 00:41:05.039 --> 00:41:07.199 be yourself and you're going to have a lot more fun. I figured that 627 00:41:07.239 --> 00:41:10.480 out too, so that's that's really it. Yeah, man, I love 628 00:41:10.639 --> 00:41:14.800 man. Great Advice. John.

My friend John Snyder talking about NBA top shots, being the 637 00:41:46.559 --> 00:41:51.119 creator around that space. Now, one thing I like that he's done as 638 00:41:51.159 --> 00:41:55.119 he's literally found something that he's passionate about in deciding on a platform to start 639 00:41:55.199 --> 00:42:00.039 creating about, which is his case instagram right now, and he's sticking to 640 00:42:00.079 --> 00:42:05.599 it and he's figuring that out and he is moving along in his creator journey 641 00:42:05.679 --> 00:42:08.159 of doing this thing. So be inspired. It is a journey, it 642 00:42:08.280 --> 00:42:12.760 is a process. We're all going through it. That's what creating daily is 643 00:42:12.800 --> 00:42:15.719 all about.

I hope he'll be on. 648 00:42:30.920 --> 00:42:35.360 We'll be talking about the power of not giving up, because he was on 649 00:42:35.400 --> 00:42:39.000 the brink of giving up in his creator journey and then there's a little switch 650 00:42:39.039 --> 00:42:43.800 that happen in his business.
