Passport – Stuck in Customs

Passport Sunday – Rarity

Check out Rarity.Tools

Hey everyone – if you are following the AiVATAR project, we recently went live on Rarity.Tools where you can see how everything ranks. Note that you may have a lower-ranked AiVATAR that actually says something very interesting so it will have a different, more subjective value.

An inside look at Rarity.Tools

Rarity.Tools is the gold standard of ranking various NFTs. I do a little bit of a deep dive here to show how the rankings are done! Enjoy!

Passport Early Look!

As I mentioned yesterday, we sold out in a few hours on the 6,000 new AI NFTs that are now being revealed on OpenSea – and if you’re a Passport Member, you’ll see a sneak peek at Director’s Cut #2. Thanks again everyone for being involved… this is the first AI on the blockchain so it’s pretty… OG! For everyone else, here is the new short promo!

Highlights Trailer Director’s Cut #2

This is my latest collection of favorite AiVATARs I’ve been watching. It’s a very early cut and I didn’t have time to add all the questions, but I think you will be able to intuit many of them!

Hello Passport Sunday People!

Sorry I’m a little late with this one… really been working crazy 14 hour days on this new NFT project. But, if you’re a Passport Member then today you’ll get to see the inchoate “Director’s Cut” of our new project from AiVATAR.io. There are so many interesting answers… I find it mind-blowing. First, here is the “short” promo video… the Director’s Cut for Passport Members is a bit over 23 minutes of tasty goodness!

Self-Important Artist Statement about the project

This is an art project to explore the creation of thousands of AIs that provide wondrously curious answers that make humans question the nature of AI and the future of our relationship together. Interesting art raises more good questions than good answers. What does it mean when an AI says something interesting, offensive, surprising, frightening, funny, thought-provoking, deep, loving, cold?

What is the future of deepfake technology and can you ever really believe anything you see over the Internet? Is it ethical to let AIs use deepfake technology to communicate with us like fellow humans if they are self-aware, as they claim in many of these videos? This is for you to explore and endeavor to understand. We are all students of these AIs. Now you have reached the end of the self-important artist statement.

The Director’s Cut

You like the music? I decided to go a little dark… it’s amazing how music really changes the tone

Passport Sunday (Monday) NFT Explosion Week 3

I’m doing 8 different videos about NFTs for Passport Members because people want to know more. The last drop is well over 400 ETH now, so things are going strong! Today’s video talks about some of the most collectible types of NFTs, which unfortunately are not photographs yet. Yes, photography is starting to get popular, but, for now, there are other interesting ways to collect.

Inside the Collections

Today I’ll show you all about avatars, collections, rarity, and why this whole crazy world is blowing up… I find it incredibly interesting. Enjoy!

MakersPlace Passport Sunday Deep Dive

If you’re a Passport Member then today, you’ll see a little bit about our upcoming MakersPlace drop. I’ve used three different marketplaces and have a little bit of insight into the advantages of one versus another. Note that we are not exactly sure when the drop will happen, but we’ve done all the work ahead of time so it’s ready when it hits.

Below is a screenshot from our first MakersPlace drop which I believe is almost sold out.

MakersPlace Drop

Here is the second video in the current series I’ve made about NFTs. In it I talk a little about our upcoming MakersPlace drop. I hope this is interesting and useful to you! 🙂

Passport Sunday Special for NFTs!

Well, thanks to the recent NFT drop on OpenSea and making about $1 million, I’ve decided to make 8 videos for Passport Members that show how I did everything. You should note, as I do in the video, that this is just for informational purposes only and I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up. It’s just all extremely interesting in this blockchain world. There’s a lot to learn, and I’m happy to share it. Oh, and here is the link to my new collectors/NFT Discord group I mention in the vid. Come join the fun.

NFT Crash Course Video 1

I don’t know if I’m gonna call this the NFT Crash Course or not yet! I don’t know what to call it… but this first video will take you on a 15-minute whirlwind tour of my 4th NFT drop which was on OpenSea. Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Tunnels of Paris

I took this around midnight one evening while I was meandering around Paris. It’s really such a beautiful city to get lost in. Here’s a hot tip, btw. A lot of times. these photos will come out quite “orange” so it’s good to set your camera’s white balance to Tungsten to push the colors back into the cooler area.
