I am afraid to go to the SharkTank 🦈 as an investor

πŸ‘‰ These are the crazy things I learned last week.


1/ FutureTickets 🎟️

If you're not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you've launched too late.

Last week I posted about my attempt to build a radical new NFT Ticketing platform from scratch in 14 days.

Of course, it is an extremely difficult task to build a whole web3 project on your own in just two weeks.

Unless you are me. ✌️

This Sunday, FutureTickets is going live πŸš€ with hopefully NOT so many errors, and I need your help!

I am looking for people to help with beta testing or even do a meetup/event using the platform (I promise it is INSANELY easy).

Help an Entrepreneur out, and to the first 10 that they will post a comment, I'll send 500 $Victory!


2/ My new Devlog is out and is fantastic! You can't miss it!

Devlog Day 3-6: Minting NFT for free and without a wallet

As you already know, I am building an NFT platform where you can sell (and buy) NFT Tickets as part of Polygon's Hackathon.

This Devlog is day 3-4-5-6 of 14 days.

You can now create NFTs for free without needing a wallet. And what's more amazing, people can claim their NFT Tickets without a wallet too! 🀯


3/ I've been asked to be in the "Greek SharkTank" 🦈, and I had one concern:

πŸ€” Do investors make any money in SharkTank or they invest just for the branding? It seems they don't make any money as Mark Cuban is in the red.

Being on SharkTank as an investor is not free as you have to commit a minimum amount of money, so it comes down if paid advertising yields a better return.

What would you do? πŸ“₯


4/ Is AI dangerous for humans?

Apparently, it is!

A chess-playing robot broke the finger of a 7-year-old boy who was competing against it during a recent tournament in Moscow.

There is no violence in chess, they said.

5/ What's the best way to get your news?

It's TikTok! (at least if you are a teen)

From Johnny Depp, to politics, to life advice, to investment advice, IT IS TikTok.

But even though you can get an insane amount of views on TikTok (way more than Instagram or YouTube), the conversion rates are extremely low. Like, disappointing low. πŸ“‰

That means that TikTok is a "vanity" social media: you get views, but you don't get "followers" thus, you don't get any money.

Are you using TikTok? I would love to know why and what's your opinion. πŸ€”


See you next week. πŸš€
