I started collecting the Coingecko candies but soon realised they could not be redeemed for anything worthwhile. So basically gave up.
Then they recently bought out the "How To DeFi" beginners and advanced ebooks as a bundle for only 1400 candies. Coingecko had a RRP of $29.99 , 1400 candies seemed like a bargain.
You received 3 different formats
Then Coingecko bought out the "How To NFT" ebook but was only available to Premium+ subscribers and cost 999,999 candies.
So I started collecting the candies again and everyday would also check "Browse Rewards". And today it was available to all and sundry for only 800 candies.
It is a total of 220 pages, including the cover, introduction, title and contents pages.
I have included the ebook introduction to give you an idea what the ebook covers.
The eBook Introduction
Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have taken the world by storm in 2021. Many in the crypto space were surprised by the massive growth of the NFT market and the various mentions by mainstream media this year. Unlike more complicated concepts such as DeFi, the general public could intuitively understand NFTs and the digital collectibles they represent. NFTs may very well be the killer blockchain product that the crypto industry has been waiting for to drive further adoption amongst the masses.
Sales of NFTs have gained significant traction since the start of 2021. The NFT mania was kickstarted by the launch of Dapper Lab’s NBA Top Shot - digital trading cards represented as NFTs featuring video highlights or “Moments” of top NBA plays. These NFTs, officially licensed by the NBA, garnered huge public recognition and marked one of the first successful forays of sports organizations into NFTs. Fans have taken their passion for NBA and began collecting digital cards representing their favorite athletes or sporting moments, giving birth to a new fan economy.
Soon after NBA Top Shot took off, artists also turned to NFTs as a new gateway to marketing and monetizing their art. Christie’s, one of the premier auction houses, further legitimized the art NFT movement by collaborating with NFT artists to auction off their artwork. The most prolific example was Beeple’s historic $69 million sale of “Everydays - The First 5000 Days”.
The crypto bull market of 2020–2021 also contributed to the NFT craze as crypto natives looked for a way to signal their status and wealth online, particularly on Twitter, Discord, and Reddit. With digital identities gaining more significance, digital avatars such as CryptoPunks have also quickly risen in value.
Collectively, NFTs have provided creators globally with an alternative way to gain value from their work. The impact of NFTs has not just been felt in the creative space. In the gaming space, we are starting to see the emergence of a new “Play to Earn” model enabled by NFTs, which upends the traditional model in which players pay for games.
Following the publication of our How to Bitcoin and How to DeFi books, we wanted to follow up with a book on NFTs. The target audience of this book is NFT beginners, with step-by-step guides on how to buy, sell, store, and mint NFTs. We will also be looking at various categories of NFTs such as Art, Music, Collectibles, Metaverses, Sports, and Utilities. In each of these NFT categories, we will be looking at some of the top NFT projects and how they generate value.
We are still in the early innings of the NFT revolution, with new NFT projects coming out daily with novel ideas on utilizing this new technology. It is our pleasure to be a part of this movement. Join us in experiencing the new world of NFTs.
