RELaiTED to the Homies
gm gm everyone, and happy Monday! This weekend was anything but boring in the crypto and #NFT world, so let’s get into what took place - as well as a special announcement from RELaiTED!
Before we do, however, don’t forget that we have a special RELaiTED space today - and it’s all about Killabears! Don’t be fooled by the tomorrow in the message below - that was posted yesterday.
If you’re looking to learn more information about Killabears, make sure to join up as we will be answering any questions people have - this will take place at 11AM EST today!
Odds and Ends
In this special episode of Odds and Ends, Craig and Hinkie sit down with Neil Verni to talk traditional art and how the Bored Ape Yacht Club fits into the blue-chip art world. Listen in as Neil describes why, in some cases, Apes may be the play over a Picasso!
It’s no surprise to anyone who follows the RELaiTED team or account that our two favorite projects and communities are Killabears and Kanpai Pandas, largely because of the immense amount of characteristics they share in common. That’s only a compliment, by the way, as they share the best characteristics out there - the teams are amazing, their sole focus is on community value, and a lot of other reasons that these teams have outperformed in a bear market. Just take a look at this chart of these two projects vs various other bluechips during the past 180 days.
Or if you really want to throw up in your mouth, take a look at the year time frame chart.
As Killabears and Kanpai Pandas continue to gain market share and displace previous blue chips, we’ve had a lot of people reach out to us from both communities inquiring about one or the other. While we obviously love kicking around DMs with people (feel free to hit us up anytime), we found we were repeating a lot of the same information, and wondered if there was a better way to bring two of our favorite communities together.
Well, we’re happy to announce that we’ve officially opened up our RELaiTED discord to anyone who holds even a single OG Killabear or Kanpai Panda!
How’s It Work
If you hold an OG Killabear - staked or not - or a Kanpai Panda, you’re now able to join a special section of our Discord just for that community. Our goal here is to continue finding ways to bring together our favorite communities in the space, and importantly, be able to amplify and bring attention to these communities who are deserving of attention in a space where scammers and grifters abound.
In fact, this week we are giving away two RELaiTED nfts as well - but only to people who join our Discord and are holding either a Kanpai Panda or a Killabear.
If you’re looking to join our RELaiTED community and pick up a pass for full access this week, here’s the play:
Join our RELaiTED Discord and verify via vulcan (you must hold either an OG Killabear or a Kanpai Panda)
Create a thread before 3/31 (this Friday) about either Kanpai Pandas or Killabears and why you are bullish on them
Tag @RELaiTED_ in the first tweet of the thread
And that’s it - we will be giving one pass away to the best thread of the week for the Kanpai Pandas, and one for the best thread of the week for Killabears! As we mentioned when we first started RELaiTED, our goal is simply to bring attention to the members in our community and the projects they love.
Speaking of Killabears, it’s been a wild weekend for the whole community and team.
First, there has been an immense amount of grail purchases over the weekend (including one from myself and a couple from Hinkie) - you can check those out below!
But people weren’t just looking for grails - the floor kept getting bought up as well, resulting in Killabears continuing their grim reaper mission of knocking off “blue chip” after “blue chip.”
As if that wasn’t enough, however, the Killabears Killamarketing team struck while the iron was hot and dropped this doozy yesterday:
Oh, and did I mention they dropped the scannerizer that allows you to tokenize your OG bear traits as well? I feel like I buried the lede, but the truth is so much stuff happens in this ecosystem it’s hard to keep up.
General Market News
Our great friend Coleman showed off some awesome Killabear custom shoes from his son!
Twitter is sunsetting their legacy verified program. I know people are split on this, but personally I enjoy that everyone will be on a level playing field instead of a group of unknown persons telling us who is and isn’t notable.
That’s it for today - I hope you have a great week, and we hope to see you in our Discord!
