Three clues I "think" I've identified so far in the trial of Jimmy the Monkey
If there's one thing I truly love and appreciate about Yuga, it's their ability to put together a good mystery and really get us all thinking, guessing, and trying to figure out what the heck is going on. So it should come as no surprise that in true Yuga fashion,
BAYC announced that the trial of Jimmy the Monkey Starts Tomorrow - here's what we know so far
In classic BAYC fashion, Bored Ape Yacht Club kicked off a clue-filled thread this afternoon about the next phase of the swamp club for apes - the trial of Jimmy the Monkey. If you don't know who Jimmy the Monkey is - he was first spotted in the BAYC 2.
Some notes on Wolf Game v1 and v2
For most of my time in the NFT space I've been pretty laser-focused on Bored Ape Yacht Club and the ecosystem around it. My plan for 2023 is to continue to stay pretty laser-focused on BAYC and I'm pretty excited about the Otherside Metaverse. That being said, it's hard to
Weekly BAYC Update - 1M followers coming up, avg sale price sits at 90ETH
Hello, TGIF, and welcome to a new series I'm kicking off on NFTInvesting.io - a weekly Bored Ape Yacht Club update. In all honesty, I've been doing these every week since mint week back in April of last year...just for myself. So I thought it was time to
What a bear market can teach us about NFT projects
I might sound like a weirdo saying this but I'll say it anyways - I love a good bear market. When it comes to NFTs, nobody should be putting money into the market that they aren't prepared to lose. This also means that you also shouldn't have to sell a
Is announcing utility good or bad for NFT projects?
I read an interesting tweet last week that got my gears turning when it comes to thinking about utility and NFT projects. Rewind to last year and it felt like the name of the game was launching projects with a ton of implied utility. On Discord and Twitter people would
One idea on using Nansen.ai to spot NFT minting opportunities
Over the last year I've gone from buying NFTs based on gut, to buying based on research and data. While gut is what got me into this space, and without it I would have likely never bought any of my Bored Apes, it's the analytics side of NFT investing that
Outside is launching the first NFT marketplace aimed at getting people into the "Outerverse"
While I might go by Metaverse Morgan, to my friends, I'm usually known as the person who would rather be hiking or snow backpacking than just about anything else. Some people love playing sports, I love adventuring outdoors - I might not watch football...but I do watch backpacking videos
A brief history of Chimpers and why its done so well in a bear market
If Q2 last year was the best time in history to launch a new NFT project, Q2 of 2022 might go down in history as the exact opposite. With new projects launching constantly and the bear market raging on, it has been a challenging time to bring a new project
gmoney just launched a new NFT project - Admit One, and the backstory is awesome
When it comes to real, authentic leaders in the NFT space, gmoney [https://twitter.com/gmoneyNFT] is high if not at the very top of my list. While I've never met gmoney, and I missed out on getting in early on what he's currently doing, I've been a fan ever
With less than 48-hours to mutate and claim Otherside land, here are the calculations
When Bored Ape Yacht Club airdropped serums last year I had a plan, hold onto an M1 and M2 and try to be the last ape standing. So far, I've stuck to my guns, I still have an M1 and M2 serum...but with less than 48-hours left in the
Is this my last opportunity to buy a Moonbird under 30ETH?
Moonbirds [https://www.moonbirds.xyz/] is a project that has been on my radar since mint day, and yes, I'm still kicking myself for not buying one yet. That being said, as you know by now, more than anything I just enjoy staring at numbers and diving into the data.
A first pass at decoding the investment value of land in the Otherside Metaverse
To say the last five days have been intense would be the understatement of the year. Saturday was a historic day for the NFT world, there was some good, some bad, and plenty of articles and tweets you can read on both. Since the focus of this blog is NFT

What are Kodas, and what role will they play in the Otherside Metaverse?
Not much is known about the mysterious Kodas, an NFT project that has already reached blue chip status in most people's minds before we even know much about it. That being said, we know enough to be dangerous, and piecing together the mystery that Yuga [https://www.yuga.com/] has
OpenSea takes down Nifty Tailor's NFT Collection
Nifty Tailor has become a core part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club ecosystem. Whether it's suiting up for Christie's or donning an $ape hoodie to celebrate ApeCoin, Nifty Tailor has been the go-to fashion designer for Bored Apes around the world. I've been a big fan of Nifty Tailor
When it comes to founding teams, Rap Off has the magic
If there's one thing I've learned through my journey in the world of NFTs, it's that at the end of the day, team is everything. Yes, art matters, and sure - having a cool game or staking mechanics, that's fun and interesting too - but the most successful NFT projects
Well hello old friend 👋
Hi, I'm Captain Morgan (that's me with the eye patch and awesome Captain's hat) and I started writing this blog back in early May of 2021. In NFT-land, that's about fifty years ago, and it really does feel like it. In my first blog post [https://www.nftinvesting.io/how-i-got-started-in-the-nft-world-and-where-i-am-now/
What are the key components of a blue chip NFT project?
The term "blue chip" is passed around a lot in the NFT world - it's often used to describe projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club, but beyond those two there's a lot of debate. Not surprisingly, the term "blue chip" has become a controversial one in the NFT
Interview with Bulls on the Block - how they staged one heck of an NFT turnaround story
Early on my journey into the world of NFTs I found out about a project called Bulls on the Block - the art instantly caught my eye, I joined the Discord, and the community did the rest. I was so excited on minting day, blocked off the time, jumped in
From Toadz to Cool Cats, is the "blue chip" NFT space growing?
Rewind just a few months ago and many people considered the blue chip NFT world to be small, very small, like two projects small - CryptoPunks and Bored Apes. But if there's one thing that the NFT summer of 2021 taught us, it's that the NFT world is always changing,
Lessons learned moving NFTs to a Ledger Nano X Hardware Wallet
While we're at a point in history where more amazing and positive things are coming from NFTs than just about anywhere else on the planet, unfortunately there's also some bad news. When things are going well, the scammers come out to play, and in NFT land right now, scammers are
Interview with Sneaky Vampire Syndicate's lead dev on their anti-bot tech
So in case you've been living under a rock, or maybe you actually do live in a Castle in Transylvania without Internet so missed all the excitement this week, there's a new NFT project called Sneaky Vampire Syndicate [https://svs.gg/], and it's minting this weekend. I discovered this project
