Speaker 1:

II CL.

Speaker 2:

Hello, hello everyone. It started in just a moment, as always. As you're coming into space, if you could please like and retweet. Also pinned a few things to the top of this pace that we're going to be talking about and, yeah, welcome to another Tech Talk. Thank you, guys for being here. How you doing day collector?

Speaker 3:

GM sir, for the third time today, GM.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, yeah, we've been on a few spaces today and talked about a few domains. I don't even remember what the last one was about either.

Speaker 3:

The last one was Free Name, like Free Name. Technical updates. The morning whizzle is like the air drops with. Like Gabo, like it's been a long day. Yeah, it has.

Speaker 2:

It's been a long day for Mike too. He has literally just faded generational wealth as we speak, again how you doing today, sir.

Speaker 3:

He got it. Okay, okay, wait, was this a generational wealth like an alpha that you faded me on? It's like the circle of fading.

Speaker 2:

No, it's actually alpha I took from you. I tried to get it. Yeah, please, no, please, none of that.

Speaker 4:

But now it's alpha.

Speaker 2:

I took from you I believe he may have faded the Solana phone because you know things to phone.

Speaker 3:

That is generational wealth.

Speaker 4:

I just bought an iPhone 15 Pro.

Speaker 3:

That's his reason. You should have basically bought, like a Solana Sega and there's a Cosmos one as well. Yeah, not that iPhone. You're not going to get any air drops from Apple.

Speaker 4:

It's true, I had 12 before and it's exactly the same, apart from the camera. It's just a little bit better.

Speaker 3:

That's all that is like. Every time it's a little bit better and that's just because, like, the phone's new and the memory's still empty, so you get like that at the beginning, but it's literally always the same. The battery and the camera are slightly better and then that's it. Yeah.

Speaker 2:

I doubt I'll be using it as a phone anyway. The reason why I decided to even to it was mainly because of the perks and benefits.

Speaker 3:

How crazy I'll see Like in the year 2024, we buy phones as a farm rather than a phone.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, man, that's the evolution of web three and crypto, and and what do you? What we call this FinTech?

Speaker 3:

Yeah, this, this thing is gamified, so we do. We've actually moved past from FinTech to deep in. The technology is now called deep in.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I don't like that word, but cool, we will call it whatever you'd like, and I do want to thank you for being up on stage, mike, as well, as you like it. And yeah, this is actually something that could benefit you, because I know that you're about to put one of the items that you have in the auction as well. So some questions you have.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, one so cool. Yeah, the number 100. So that's how many entries I'll be putting into the orchestra 100. Yes sir.

Speaker 2:

All right, but without kind of want to get this rolling, so I'm going to go ahead and get started again. Please do me a favor and like and retweet. I would like to welcome you to I heart domains in our tech talk spaces where we discuss news, innovations, education and alpha in the Web three domain, technology and digital identity space. We are your one stop shop to discover, learn by, build, develop and eventually sell your Web three domains and digital identity, with a focus on integrity and education. We are here for the long haul and you should be to.

Speaker 2:

As always, our tech talks are recorded and you can view or go back through our content archive at heart domainscom. And if if you go through our content archive on I have to make that calm not only will you see the embedded podcast player we can listen back to the spaces but you'll also see a nice little blog recap there. So a couple different ways to engage the content. Also, if you do want to listen to it natively in podcast form, you can do so on every major podcast player, including Apple and Spotify. You can get to that pretty easily at tech talkhost. And yeah, again thank you to my guests for being here today. Once you guys develop, go ahead and say hi, so everybody knows who you are.

Speaker 4:

Who's going first? Go ahead. I guess, Okay, yeah, retro really won't come in in the space a little while now probably two and a half years Along with when I drop obviously invested in quite a few bits and pieces over the over the time run, run a few projects. It's at a ground really. You know when's very, very bullish on domains. And that's his bag and, as you can see, he's very knowledgeable. He goes to a lot of you know talks.

Speaker 3:

It's basically the top, top signal for you guys. So if you hear Willie shilling something like, here we go. Probably we've claimed already.

Speaker 4:

If you want to know how to lose money, please contact me. It's not for rugging you, it's just pure like I don't know what we called it. I don't want to cuss myself and say stupidity, but I suppose I missed the boat. You know, when the boat comes I'm still there sleeping. But um hey, sometimes we get it right, you know, sometimes we get it right. But yeah, now me I'm saying but yeah, a lot of alpha from these guys, I come on and I can talk for England. Second seconds Или.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I'm while, while he does that.

Speaker 4:

Sorry yeah. Kids screaming and fighting. Sorry yeah, no, go for it.

Speaker 2:

Thank you. Thank you, as always, for being here. Mike appreciate it. Look forward to hearing some of your input as well. I hope you participate in this auction. I'm trying to give you a bunch of reasons to Go for a collector just a quick one.

Speaker 4:

Just a quick one before collector gets on. Guys, if you haven't done so already, I'm like, you know I'll just repeat myself. Just like and retweet the space, bottom right hand bubble. Let's get as many people. Let's invite our friends, family, anyone, anyone can get it. You know where the can people, so you can get it. So just invite everyone. It just helps the host. You know he's putting a lot of time and effort in into it, a lot of alpha. It's free at the moment. You know, in in the coming months and, um, when the ball really starts rolling, you know the people are going to be paying good money for Just just the knowledge alone from these guys. So please, as we're getting it free, the the best thing you can do To help us is just like a retweet the space and invite your friends. Um, just to just listen, listen to what we got to say. That's it from me. Yeah, sorry, go go ahead. Collector, thank you.

Speaker 3:

Um, I was just gonna say I I came in, this is space. I thought it was a telegram call. I'm now here with when he's gonna tell us about this domain auction, which is very bullish. I'm personally gonna submit 100 domains. So, yeah, man, here to learn, here to farm, here to be a dj in the web free space. I'm chilling.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, we are we are, we are educated dj's we have a.

Speaker 2:

We have a good balance. Sometimes I think yours tips a little bit more to the dj inside than me, but we are cut from the same cloth and none wrong with it. You can be a dj in a domaining as well, um, and this might appeal to that side of a lot of people, but at the same time, you know, a lot goes into it. So, hopefully, to touch both those bases and, again, happy to have you here as well, and yeah, without further ado. Also, if anyone else wants to come up and wants to add to the conversation or request a speaker, oh, please feel free to do so and I will invite you on up. This is the perfect place to ask questions. As you know, my spaces are pretty inviting. Um, I'm gonna start with a couple of opening topics before we dive right into it. Um, a couple of these announcements are some that I've been talking about, but it's good to to repeat, uh, myself, so that people you know kind of stay on the same page, uh, so, yeah, for those of you who don't already know, next week is when I will be flying out to Denver for Eat Denver, so I will be out there, uh, from the 28th to the 22nd. For those of you who've been to conferences or have been in the middle of doing a million things at one time, uh, probably be a little afk for that portion. So if you see me, uh, not posting as much during that time or not being on other people's spaces, you know why, um. But also, uh, this is again another open invitation for anyone If you're going to be in Denver, uh, during that period of time and you want to meet up, um, if you've been there before, you know that there's plenty of places to do it. Um, you can always just send me a DM. We can coordinate something have lunch, have coffee, smoke, talk domains, do whatever you want to do.

Speaker 2:

Business development I love meeting people in person. It's a great way to connect, for each other's energy and also to build business for the year to come, until the next december. So, um, yeah, that are. That is the plans for next week. I plan on going out there, like it's some of the 28th, which is on a wednesday, so We'll be shifting the tech talk next week till tuesday and, as you will have noticed, that will also be out there Uh, through the second, which eclipses the first, uh, which is when our auction starts, so, uh, definitely plan on using that time productively as well. Um, so, yeah, uh, any of you? Uh, well, I know mike and collector both of you guys. You just don't want to come to the united states for some reason, even though this is a an amazing event. I don't know what you have going on out there, though.

Speaker 2:

I, I actually not, not, so the free name team is going to be down here, though.

Speaker 4:

Not so, man, if if I didn't have so many um, I'm Engaging us here, uh me and me and mike can't even meet iRL.

Speaker 3:

We tried again twice last week.

Speaker 4:

Ah, do you know what you have to give me, like that day that we were meant to meet up?

Speaker 3:

It's just not gonna happen. Just fuck it.

Speaker 4:

It will. It will happen. Well, I don't know, man, you're busy. I was very tired that day, man. But yeah, you didn't get back to my dm. I said sunday, I'm all yours.

Speaker 3:

And then I think I message you like monday or two, I don't even know, like.

Speaker 2:

I lose track of days. Well, yeah, uh, if you guys do uh choose to beat up.

Speaker 4:

We got. We got crypto jones in the maybe, in the comments maybe next time?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I see him, maybe next time you guys, don't let him up.

Speaker 4:

We won't. We won't be able to get a word in edgeways.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that's all good, um. Next piece of opening news as well. And uh, seeing that crypto jones is up here, hi, how you doing the long, long time. No see, uh. But also wanted to remind everybody that's listening to the tech talks. I think it's something that you brought up. Thank you for bringing up when you first came into the space.

Speaker 2:

Um, it is extremely important that when you guys do come into the spaces, that you are Sharing them out as well as supporting the other social media channels. We do have several besides just twitter, uh. So not only these spaces here just to run spaces, but I do Um also, you know, provide a lot of information in the other channels, such as on our telegram group. If you're not already a member of that, that is a great place to start a dialogue about uh, about anything Like. If you're bullish on any naming system or if you have any questions, that's a good place to have that conversation. I'm also sharing Um. I have a special section there for pretty much for dj in alpha. So if you're Uh air drop hunting in one of places where you can kind of like, I said you, you can, you can hang out, learn, do all the things in one space. I have an environment there. Um, I've also been sharing that. We created a profile on far caster, so I'm not sure how many of you have migrated or created accounts over on a workcast or far caster, but please also find our account there. Uh, not only do we have the iHeart domains Account, but we also started the web three domains channel as well as several other channels. But again, channels are there for for education, for you to ask any questions, for you to start any type of dialogue. Uh, this is a business and there's a lot, of, a lot of different facets of this business. So, created a lot of channels, a lot different ways for you to engage with us, including on youtube. So just wanted to put that reminder out there for you guys.

Speaker 2:

Um, and yeah, uh, lastly, do also want to remind you guys that tech talks are not financial advice. I know a lot of the stuff that I say sounds good. Again, I think, as I mentioned, we are learning together. I do deep dive, I do the best I can, but Always do your own research.

Speaker 2:

Everyone's experience may differ, including my own, from how it originally began. So if my uh, just because I hold the tech talk and I'm originally bullish on something Does I mean I'll stay bullish on that thing and in those cases I may hold follow-up tech top spaces to discuss any changes and previously discussed Uh platforms or anything like that. So uh, just wanted to always remind you guys to always do your own research Wherever we say or whatever is being said on here. Um, yeah, if I ever feel like I need to correct something or put you on a heads up, or if somebody I was bullish on Ever does something weird, I'll come back on here and correct it. Um and yeah, uh, without further ado, before we get started, collector might got anything else to say. We're gonna take, take right in.

Speaker 3:

Go ahead, Now go ahead go ahead.

Speaker 4:

Yeah, guys, there's a, there's a quite a few of us here. Just like and retweet the space. Please do it. What am I? And bubble? Let's go crypto Jones. Yeah, like and retweets the space. Tell him. Tell him, you want to know?

Speaker 2:

No, okay, yeah, every person who likes or retweets the space will get will get airdrop Invisible love. You can cash that. Take that to the bank. But, yeah, thank you once again for that, mike. Yeah, let's get into it. As you guys can see, the topic is auction talk part one Web through domain price discovery. Part two is going to be what we do on Tuesday, pretty much from now until the auction starts and includes is basically going to be auction week or whatever you call it. Most of my content discussions going to be face focused around that. But, yeah, are inaugural. Gamified Web through domain auction in partnership with GBM is just around the corner. As you guys can see, if you've already been on the website, premium domains have already began being uploaded into the auction contract and we are set for an exciting week full of bidding, rewards and, most importantly, getting the most value for both buyers and sellers of each of these domains.

Speaker 2:

Today we're going to dive into some of the mechanics of the auction the names that are currently available that you'll see on the platform, what to expect and kind of what to absolutely not do, because we've already have to go through that, one of those examples being sending me 100 domains. You can send one collector. And again, if anybody I see a couple of people in the audience Obviously, if you guys want to come up and have any questions whether you have an item in the auction this time, I want to put one in next time. Again, feel free to request. Speak roll, I'll let you guys come on up. But yeah, I'm going to get into some of the mechanics and we'll start with the mechanics for people who are planning on bidding or participating in the auction first. So yeah, first and foremost, the start date in time is going to be on the 1st of March at 10am central standard time.

Speaker 2:

The website I put the links in several of the tweets, but it's super easy to get to the website to get to the auction. So we've got I heart domainscom. So if you can navigate there, go to the top bar and you will see find domain. There will be three options. There's mint, marketplace and auction. Clicking auction will take you directly to the market, to the auction drops page. I got to do is log in with your wallet and you are ready to go. So if you go to that page right now, you'll notice that all the domain names that are uploaded right now have a timer on them and that timer is set to the 1st of March at 10 o'clock central standard time. So for those of you who are planning on participating in the auction, that would be the date and time to put on your calendar, and the duration of the auction for each of the names is going to be exactly the same.

Speaker 2:

So each of the domains is going to start at the same time, so the first of March, 10 o'clock AM central standard time, and it will last for approximately seven days. So you have seven days to get your bids in and finalize and secure the asset that you like. Also the bidding currency. So when you log in with your wallet and you connected, it will be on the polygon network and the bidding currency that will be used is wrapped Ethereum. So East on polygon. The reason for East on polygon just to reiterate this is East is, I guess, a unit of measurement that most of us are used to using. You know quite frequently and pretty much every domain marketplace, so numbers, that you're used to a lot of people. It's easy for them to bid and eat and understand. But on polygon, because you know easily, ethereum network with gas can be expensive, so mitigates that as well. So you got your ETH and it'll be on polygon. That is what the bidding currency is. So if you're loading up to participate in the auction, make sure to load up on the Ethereum on the polygon network and it's we've. So WTH and the main week. There's nothing weird about it Get the normal wrapped Ethereum and then yeah also.

Speaker 2:

Lastly, if you're planning on participating in the auction, this auction varies from typical options and we've gone through this also as well with past spaces and also with the AMA, with GBM, and I think most of you kind of understand the GBM process anyway. But the difference between this and the typical auction is this auction is a gamified auction and the way that will work is and I'll explain more about how the minimum bids work kind of, as I explained, the auction mechanic for those who submitted domains, but each domain has a minimum bid, so the auction needs to be opened up with a certain minimum in order to for your bid to counter, for it even to go through the first person to open the bid or open that auction, the best case scenario for them, or the expected outcome, I would think, would be for them to have no challengers and win the auction. In the event that the bid does become, or the auction does become, a bidding process becomes competitive the first person to become out bid, so you're the first to bid. You open the auction up by placing the minimum bid. You are actually in line to be the largest recipient of rewards if you're out bids.

Speaker 2:

The way the gamification process works is if someone let's say the minimum opening bid is $1,000 and you bid a thousand or half an ETH, and you bid a half an ETH, which I know is a lot more than $1,000, but we're using several numbers let's say someone comes above you and bids 0.55 ETH, okay, because you're the first person to get out bid, you will receive back in real time your half an ETH.

Speaker 2:

Plus you'll receive a bounty or a like a bonus of 10% of your original bid for being knocked out, which is why they call this a win-win auction.

Speaker 2:

So the next person who makes that bid that out bids you. That person is next in line to either receive the item, which they intended to do by making that bid, or, if they get out bid, they also get paid a bounty, but their bounty is less, so they're not going to get the same 10%. It progressively decreases with eight subsequent bid, which is why, if you're planning on going to the max anyway, it benefits you to just jump in with the bid first, so you can get nice little rebate back and then, you know, continue reloading with that extra bonus that you have. But just putting that out there. So that's how the gamification process works. Their motto, cbms, is that everyone wins, because essentially that's what happens the winner either wins the item or in some way, shape form or another, you're going to get some sort of rebate along with your with your bid back if you are out bid. I hope that makes sense so far. Anybody have any questions? That would be you two.

Speaker 3:

It's a good concept and, like, I'm familiar with it before. But anyone that isn't like the TLDR, so you can earn money just by being out, bid on the auction and stuff. In simple terms, there's a few domains on there. I think unstoppable. I think there'll be a few three name ones as well, and then, yeah, and you don't even need to start like $1000. You could start maybe I don't even know what the minimum reserves are, but it could be like $50, $100, like that kind of stuff, and then work your way up.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and each domain. So this this auction is is actually a lot different than I think the ones that they have done so far with domain providers. The ones that they have done with with well, I think unstoppable is the only one that they have partnered with outside of me thus far, but the inventory has been unstoppable zone, so I'm not sure what they set the minimums up with there. But this inventory is basically all coming from the community, so it's different for each domain and we're going to go through the domains a little bit after.

Speaker 3:

I do the mechanics for the submission. It's not just your domains. Other people will have submitted the domains and can other people submit their domains if they haven't like.

Speaker 2:

So this this round was by invitation only and, yeah, we actually did have, and still do have, quite a few submissions coming in that will fill the available slots that we have for the auction. But, yeah, the 99% of all the domains that will be in this auction have come from the community.

Speaker 3:

And then, how many slots are there available in Tozoo?

Speaker 2:

This will be a 20 slot auction and there are 10 already uploaded in to the auction contract and I have a couple more to upload as soon as we get off of the spaces. Hopefully that answers your question.

Speaker 3:

I feel a couple more coming in as well.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, just one if it's from you. Also, I do want to clarify something out there, because this has been a point of confusion. This is something I was going to add in the other mechanics, but it works both ways. Once we start going through the domains, you'll notice and this isn't by design, but you'll notice all the domains that are uploaded so far are from unstoppable. That's a beautiful thing, because that's, again, it's highlighting an issue. Their community needed an auction process and outlet for it. Until they create one and kudos to Unstoppable all these great people over there until they create one I'm happy to fill that void.

Speaker 2:

However, for those from the outside of that community that are looking and may think that this is an unstoppable auction, I do want to clarify something. First and foremost, the items that I was able to receive for this initial auction just to keep it simple for me needed to also be on the Polygon Network, since that is the blockchain and the currency that we're receiving. In order to upload the assets as the contract, they have to be assets that exist on Polygon Network. Just by default, certain naming systems were just excluded, but that is something that I'm working on in the future. Again, like I said, I wanted to take the simplest path forward to have the smoothest auction possible. But in the future there are things like being able to duplicate assets on the blockchain, still storing the original assets in a vault or in an escrow so that the personal settlement is going to be happening.

Speaker 2:

But they may be bidding on a clone thing that's uploaded to the contract anyway, or we may just move the contract to ease. Just depends on how people feel. Like I said, I wanted to do this on Polygon to save gas so that it could be competitive and bid as much as you want to back and forth. But this is one of those things where we'll take the feedback and obviously we've got a lot of people that are in my community that want to list each domains or they want to list the web, two domains that they just bridged over. That will be coming. I just wanted to clarify that for now, this particular auction, we're sticking with the assets or half the stick with the assets that are on Polygon. Again, most people so far have submitted unsoppable domains that think we're going to get some free naming, hopefully also just central web.

Speaker 3:

Sorry, just to balance it out, because currently it's all unstoppable. It's one unstoppable entry and two free name entry. Right, because it's coming. Say what? No, it's coming.

Speaker 2:

You got a few free names loaded coming your way, so yes, so I suggest that you look through those and pick the one best free name that you have instead of that one over Correct, and they got to be more than happy to add that to the auction, and you're one of those that it was privileged to get an invitation to submit something, so yeah, good luck to you.

Speaker 3:

I feel honored, sir. Thank you.

Speaker 2:

And yeah, with that being said, this next session, this next section, is for you. So here's some of the mechanics or how things will work for some of those who have yet to submit domains. So, first and foremost, thank you to everyone who has submitted thus far. When we start going through some of these names, kind of in this next little part, you'll see we got some bangers in this auction. So definitely get your ETH ready. Some brails and I already know what's still coming and you'll be surprised at what we're about to have in this auction so extremely excited. But for those who have received invitations, who have submitted them but may have not necessarily sent the domain already with it to the auction wallet, your deadline is this Friday, so you still have a couple more days to send it to the wallet. Yeah, there's that part. So that's your submission deadline If you're on the fence. If you don't want to send it, go for it. Like I said, we've still we still got plenty of inventory for this auction, but let me know anybody who has received one of these invitations. That is your deadline.

Speaker 2:

Also, I think, as I mentioned before with the bidding currency, there is a section on the submission form that asks for what your minimum bid is and, just as collector said, you can opt for a zero minimum bid, and I'm actually going to explain this. So two things the minimum bid needs to be an ETH because the auction is going to be ETH. So I know a lot of people sent their original minimum bids to be USD. It was the easiest thing to communicate. I've thus I've since reached back out to those people and gotten the ETH equivalent that they wanted to list for. But just for those who haven't submitted your forms or submitted anything yet, I will need that minimum bid and ETH. I do also want to explain how the minimum bids work, because it's a little bit different than you might be used to.

Speaker 2:

If you're dealing with an auction reserve and I know I've explained this before Again you know repetition just helps everybody stay on the same page. With a traditional option, the way the reserve works is you're basically setting a minimum still, but you're allowing people to bid and kind of create price action all the way up and to and, of course, beyond that reserve. But once they get to that reserve part, you're basically saying if my reserve is met, I am cool with letting that. If this is as far as the bids goes, I'm cool with letting the item go for that amount but, like I said, there's price action leading all the way up there. So your reserve, even though it may be 5,000, may still accept bids and $100 incuments leading all the way up to there.

Speaker 2:

The way it works here with a minimum bid is that's where the minimum bid has to start. So they can't. There is no price action until the first bidder pays or is agreeing to purchase that item or puts their bid in for the amount that covers or exceeds whatever you set as that minimum auction amount. And that does a couple of things right On, obviously, on the positive side to the person who is submitting the domain, you don't want to be put in a position where you set the auction to zero minimum bid and end up letting your asset go for less than you wanted to. It could be heartbreaking if you find out that next person builds a little bit of value and to inflips it for more. Or, like I said, if you had a number in your head and it just doesn't get there and it's gone. So there's that part. It allows you to set something that you know worse to worse. I can walk away with this, so that's what it does for you on that end.

Speaker 2:

There are some benefits, though, to setting a lower minimum bid. Is that, for items that don't necessarily have, you know, a clear value yet right, which, in a lot of cases, it's most of these domains, a lot of domains, some of them move for a bunch of money for some reason, and then we look at our portfolio and we're like I've got the same name, or my name's better, but I can't even get offers on it. We are in an extremely weird and volatile and uncertain market, so, even though we've got a number in our mind, it might take a little work and some gambling to get you to get to it, and so lower minimum bids allow people to enter the auction, at least start the process, and then you know, the hope is that somebody sees it wants to increase and then starts the price war and then eventually gets you where you want to be anyway. So just want to put that out there. Minimum bids need to be an ETH, and that's how they work, and I see we've got.

Speaker 2:

We do have a new speaker up on the stage. I'm actually bringing you back up as well, mike. If you do have a question. You can feel free to raise your hand and jump in with it, or if you want to pop one in there now, go for it. I also have a question. Yeah, oh, fantastic. How do I send?

Speaker 3:

in my free name domain for the bidding or the bidding address. So how do you save?

Speaker 2:

that Okay, yeah, so if you have not already received an invitation, then there are no more invitations to go out for this round, because there was very limited spots for this round and because I'd kind of been, you know, discussing the auction quite a bit kind of leading up to now. I think since we first started the partnership with GBM, both in public and in back channels, gave a lot of people the opportunity to get on the list to submit, and I get it Like now that's happening. A lot of people want to submit after the fact that you'll have the opportunity on the next auction. That's the other thing too. Plan on doing this once a month. So, just because you missed this auction, right after this, you're going to go right into the planning session. You know, hopefully we have a successful auction, get everybody everything that they were looking for. Then we'll get into the planning session and go through this process again for auction number two.

Speaker 2:

So yeah, so I would say stay on the lookout, stay connected with my community. I think I'd mentioned that before as well. I'm always going to get preferential treatment to those who are engaging with the community, that are in one of the Alpha groups that are. You know that if I know you. You know, if you just popped in the community yesterday then it's a little bit different. But yeah, stay in touch and you know we can get you into the next round if that works for you Okay.

Speaker 2:

Awesome, yeah, moving on to the next. Do you have any more questions before? I kind of move on from that one.

Speaker 3:

If anything, I'm just going to say I'm going to jump off quickly when it's been great. I'm going to listen to the rest of the recording once it's over. Yeah, very informative. I'm definitely going to get my domain slash domain sent over to you and I'm looking forward to this new style of like web free domain, I don't know, like activities, I guess trade in Well, yeah it's an option. Yeah, let's go Great speaking with you guys when Mike and everyone else KBiz shout out to you guys have a good day.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you have a good day as well, and yeah, just another reminder. Thank you again for coming up, collector. The next part was just on the submission forms. Please, again, if you get your submission form for those of you who have already been receiving submission forms, please make sure to fill them out completely. The information on the form is what I rely on to match domain to person, person to wallet. So here's a couple of things I want to clarify. Please make sure you put the correct information.

Speaker 2:

Double check your forms, wallets, own domains first for me. So when I'm looking at a domain name and where it's coming from, it doesn't matter what you tell me in DMs. I'm always going to look at where it came from. I'm going to look at that wallet address and that owns the domain first. Then I'm going to match it up with whatever you're putting on that form and I'm going to do my double and triple checking. So please make sure that you also double triple check. Also and I've said this before and again, just repeating it If you receive the form, whether you intend or have submitted a domain or not, or do not intend on submitting a domain, please do not share this form with anyone, no matter how bad they requested, because I cannot receive things if I do not know where they're coming from and, trust me, I know every single person I sent one of these invitations out to. So if I get a form back that is from someone I don't know, I'm going to ignore it. And if I get something into the marketing or into the auction wallet that is not something that I have a form for or was unsolicited, I'm going to send it right back where it came from. It's not to be mean, it's just again, it's a process. I don't want anything to go wrong. I don't want to get flooded with names because if that was the case, I mean people would submit things from everywhere and then people would claim names for theirs and what theirs. You know, a lot of stuff can get mixed up. So the way things are working is the way it works for a reason. And then, lastly, as I begin to submit your names into the auction contract, they are kind of, in essence, that that moment lied. Okay, even though they don't go live forbidding until the next eight days, 20 hours and 22 minutes, they are live inside the auction, inside the auction contract. They are good to go. They are assets that are ready to be bid on, and then you can also begin to share your auction listing. So I'm going to do a bunch of things on my end in order to market and promote the auction Again doing these spaces, also going out to eat Denver do have quite a few plans of things to do out there with some IRL networking and marketing and getting people on board for the auction.

Speaker 2:

But it's also just as important that you market your own names. If you have a name in one of these auctions, it'd be who's you to tell as many people as possible that your name is in it, to share it out to your base of people that you know or think maybe interested in it, or even share it out to your Ease Buddies or your buddies on Docsats or people who are collecting in other spaces, so that you get your name sold, because I mean, that's the goal here, right? If this name doesn't sold, it doesn't cost either one of us anything. It just gets removed from the auction, gets sent back to you. So it, like I said, it benefits us both If I'm sharing it on my end to have a successful auction for everyone and, of course, if you're sharing it on your end and it is very easy to get your link.

Speaker 2:

Again, you go right back to the I heart domains. If you don't already have the direct link which I posted inside most of the tweets, you also. You can just go back to I heart domains. Go into the find domain click auction and it will take you down to the list of domains that are in the auction Currently. You click on whichever one is yours and it'll pull it up with a link that you can share out to let people know which domain that you have in the auction and anything that you have. If you tag me, I'll share it out as well. Try to get, like I said, as many eyes and stuff on it as possible. But yeah, without further ado, I'm going to start going through some of the names that we currently have submitted and I'm going to also go through the minimum bids that are on these names. So you know what to expect and have your E3 and then we will go ahead and wrap up.

Speaker 2:

This wasn't meant to be a long space. Again, this is going to be kind of a series of spaces and content that we're going to be creating, you know, up until and through the auction, to make it as successful as possible. So yeah, before kind of go into the names, start naming them one by one. Again, if either one of you on the stage that I can say, feel free to raise your hand and pop on in. If not, I'm going to run through it. And this is the part. If you guys haven't already done so, I do want to direct you to that auction page because it's a lot easier for you to follow along with this. So go to I heart debates that car. Go to find domains in the top menu bar, scroll down to the auction and it should take you to the website I heart domains dot, gbm, dot, auction and options with a Ford slash options. That should be the page that you're on. So yeah, as I said, still have some amazing names that are going to be coming in. But once you go through the names that are already here because these are some bangers.

Speaker 2:

So the first one is going to be gamer in FT, with an opening bid of I believe it's going to be half an eighth for this one, which is dirt sheet. That's the other thing too, for all these Grails. The opening bids on these are extremely reasonable If you're talking about, if we were even looking at in s names. This wouldn't be. These would be scooped up immediately as soon as they were listed. Not sure why unstoppable, have a little bit more of a pricing difficult your, but whatever it is, but these are some, some solid ones. So have to open bid for gamer in FT. That's kind of a no brainer. If you're a gamer, this is definitely a real for you best way to represent yourself. Second one that you'll see down here on this list is flex dot x, which, again, is another no brainer. Biggest flex you can own would be flex, and these are all, as you see, these are all in the unstoppable domains contract.

Speaker 2:

Another thing that I'd like you to do as well, kind of before we go any further, is when you open any of these listings, so they look the way that they look now they don't have, like, the bid button or anything like that, because the oxen is are, like I said, even though they're live in the contract. The timer has an eclipse ship. Once the timer eclipses, though, it will actually show you what the minimum opening bid is, and then it'll show you exactly what you'll earn when you bid it. So it gives you all that information up front, but the information that you're able to see now as well, so that you can make sure that you're bidding on the correct items, is you will see the token ID. You'll also be able to see the contract ID. You'll see exactly what the NFT is. All everything, all the information about the NFT as well, or all the metadata of the NFT that you're bidding on, is in each of the auction items. So that's another thing that you can do. If you want to go through and this is for my bidders if you want to go through one by one, each item just to make sure your metadata and all that stuff is correct, all of that is provided for you here.

Speaker 2:

But yeah, so we just went through flex dot x. The next one on this list is Venus dot x, which is perfect for a million reasons for any of my talent lovers, for anybody who connects with the word Venus I think it also has, like a Greek beanie or something outside of planets but also another flex one word domains. That's another thing here to these. These one word domains typically have the most value in the traditional domain market, especially in the went to the main market, you'll always see that one word keywords are going to command the most premium Same thing, additional identity, these one word, easy to say keywords, especially things that are like ancient, like a planet. You're always going to have a market for it. So being able to grab something like that, you know, especially right now, in a competitive environment like this auction, you know it's definitely to be a big benefit.

Speaker 2:

And this one is going to open up at just point one five, so he's right now is what? The little over three grand, or hit three K with 450 bucks to open up this particular domain option? The next one that we have is mind your bag, dot X, because, yeah, you need to find your bag and this is actually one of the domains here that is going to be opening up with a very low opening bid. I think it's point zero one, which is what? 30 bucks.

Speaker 2:

So, and there's a thing, maybe two or three domains here that actually open up at very, very, very low, but I either point zero one If opening bid. So some of these are meant to be competitive. So if your budget won't allow you to spend half an eighth on a domain or spend a quarter, either something like that, to start a domain or to start an ox on one of these domains. There are plenty of great domains that are going to be in this auction, that are going to be a lower price for, especially at the Venus dot X. For point one five, the mind your bag. For point zero. For point zero one very easy ones to open up and hopefully no one has any questions. So far, mike, you still there with me.

Speaker 4:

Yeah, sir, I'm still here, man Still here yeah.

Speaker 2:

Awesome. So, hopefully you're planning on getting your teeth together in order to participate in the auction. You got the half of you ready, right Since you faded the Salonophone plenty of money.

Speaker 4:

I'm there.

Speaker 2:

Well, yeah, let's hop into the next one. This actually the next one, surprisingly is a solid one for what it's opening up at, and this is quantity dot x. Quantity dot x is like that's a name hack Quantity x, right. So, again, great combination Single, single, easy to pronounce. Keyword, coming behind x, putting the two together with the name hat. This one also opens up at point zero, one each.

Speaker 2:

So he wanted to, he wanted a little competition, one of their y'all to be competitive on this one. I definitely don't think it's going to go for anywhere near that, but a great entry point for anybody who is looking at that particular domain. And then next we have in dowel dot x. And then dowel is another word for charity. So if you want to endow someone with something or gift someone with something, this is the domain for you, maybe the ultimate domain for you endow dot x. That could be represent a very big endowment or represent a group of endowments, right. And I believe this one is going to be opening up at a half a piece. So, yeah, for anybody who is looking at that one, go for it.

Speaker 2:

And then next we have web. Three names dot, go. So this is going to be on the dot go TLD. We actually have a couple that are going to be on the dot go. I have one, like I said, that I still need to upload into the contract as soon as we are finished with this tech talk and I'm going to mention it kind of at the end as well. But I have another dot go to upload and this one is going to be opening up at point zero one. So another very affordable name, if it ends up going for that low price but very affordable to open up, easy entry point, so that we have something for everybody that wants to participate in the auction. And yeah, web three names dot go. That's what this is all about, right? And then the next is we have a voxels dot x. The voxels, apparently, is a big thing, it's a. Are you familiar with what a voxel is, mike?

Speaker 4:

Yeah, a voxel is a car company in in England. So yeah, voxel, they're pretty, they're like a Ford right.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I think in this case they might actually be talking about like digital pixels. So it's actually kind of related to to art and 3D and graphics. I'm winding you up.

Speaker 4:

I'm winding you up, man. Okay, yeah, so yeah, I know that.

Speaker 2:

But yeah, but that being said, extremely big industry. Another one likes pretty much every name in here Solid name. This one's following the same formula Extremely popular keyword, single word keyword in front, premium extension coming on, the TLD, arguably probably the most attractive extension. Well, especially in the in the web three space, I know, you know, of course the EVE clan will say it's them. The dots ask every. Every clan will say it's them. But as far as, like, the general mass is what may be the cleanest extension? The dot x. So yeah, very, very valuable keyword here.

Speaker 2:

And voxelsx we're going to be opening up. I believe pretty cheap it's. I forgot what we're opening foxels up at. I will check in just a moment. It is not that much though. Maybe a quarter ease or something like that. So very easy price point to get into. I definitely do not think it will go for anywhere near that.

Speaker 2:

This is at least a few EVE domain, a lot that you can build on that not only for personal identity, but as unstoppable continues to build up their platform, every single name here can be used for messaging. So they already have their messaging client running completely. Even with token getting, with badges, they continue. They're continuing to add features to those who both want exclusivity in their existence of Web 3 and want to create exclusive exclusivity for their communities. So, whether you're buying one of these for, like I said, just personal identity to continue keeping on how you're keeping on on your journey, or they're buying one of these and truly looking at you know, creating a community or a business around it and inviting people to it, like I said, we've got some solid beggars of names here Great platform, this continuously, always building, and they're always building with that in mind right to provide value to the consumer. That's one of the things that I will always give insolvable credit for is that they're looking at the regular consumer and thinking what can this person do with this and use this for and how can they get the most value out of it. So, for the time being, while you're able to get these especially words like these that are premium for far less than their Ethereum counterparts, yeah, consider yourself lucky and I hope to see most of you participate.

Speaker 2:

And, moving on from voxelsx, we have sports betsx, which is another self-explanatory one. So, for those of you who are in the sports betting, either business or just want the flex, or want something to stamp, you know or use as your handle. Sports betsx got you covered. Sports betsx is actually opening up at just.2E. So yeah, for.2e, which is, like I said, pretty cheap to get into.

Speaker 2:

Anything that could be a permanent, just like that. That's the other thing too as well. These domains at least the ones that are here so far, actually on every platform, that's, on Polygon thus far, that I've invited to, unless it's a TLD from Decentral Web. So if we end up getting Decentral Web TLDs, those come with renewals. But any of the SLDs from Decentral Web, any of the either the TLDs or SLDs from FreeName, and any of the unstoppable domains, they all have no renewals.

Speaker 2:

So it's, whatever you're paying, whatever you end up closing this bid out for, you don't have renewals afterwards.

Speaker 2:

You own that item forever.

Speaker 2:

You're able to do whatever you want with it, including bring it back to the option in the future once the market has matured and you feel like you can get more money out of it. So yeah, there you have it.

Speaker 2:

And then the last one, before I talk about the othergo that I'm about to upload and on part two of the auction, on auction talk, I'm going to go through this again and go through the other ones that have been uploaded because, like I said, I've got some real amazing ones that are going to be uploaded, including one that may have seen the auction before and is definitely a super grail. But the last one here that you will see that's currently live in auction is waifuanime. I'm going to be honest with you I have no clue what the name waifu or what the term waifu means, so I'm looking it up right now just because it's not something that I say in my daily vocabulary. However, that was one of the domains that stood out to the auction, to GBM. When we were going through other than the auction, they saw that name and they're like oh, waifu, down on me, I like that.

Speaker 4:

That is yeah. In the manga scene, a waifu is like do you know what? It is Right, I'm not just telling you how to suck eggs.

Speaker 4:

Now you for real educated me right now, because I just all right, you know, like crypto girlfriend I don't even want to shill here, sound like I'm shilling but that sort of anime so people can get their own Like wife for you, like wife sort of things, you know, I mean it's that sort of. It's a manga of a female and, yeah, it's your own. Why for you, wifey sort of. You know, I mean that that sort of theme. So it will go for a lot of people there's. There's a couple of artists as well with with the, with the name wifey you in their title. I'm not gonna She'll them either, but they've got millions of followers and and that as well. So, yeah, it would be a very, very popular for a niche Market there. So, yeah, it's very popular for people that are into that manga and gaming and and that sort of thing, that's your sort of thing. That is definitely a popular One. So get your money ready for that one.

Speaker 2:

Well, yeah, and we are extremely blessed to have it in the auction. Like I said, got at got interest off the top From the people over at GBA and I thought that was funny because it was like good, you know I'm. I'm glad that other people are looking at the names and showing interest and hopefully everyone else sees value and as well, especially on this one, and kind of like the other ones, this one makes perfect sense, waifu, as you thank you again for explaining that Combined with the dot anime extension pairs perfectly together. This one's opening up at half an east, so again, extremely affordable entry point for something like this. You know, if you attach dot east to it, lord knows what it would go for. Hopefully one day we do also get some grail dot east inter auction. Explained earlier why we have the items that we have For this one, but we do intend to include every chain that we can figure out how to get into this auction. But yeah, definitely some great names here so far. One of the ones that I'm going to be uploading here in just a little bit is Decentre net go okay, and yeah, that one is talking about, obviously our decentralized internet and how we need to start going down that path. That is going to be our next dot go that will be entering this auction and I believe that one's also going to be opening up with a pretty Affordable price point, at point zero, one ETH. So again, another one for those of you who want to participate in the auction Don't want to put up half a quarter ETH, point two ETH, point one five ETH, even though that is extremely cheap For all of these names, all of these ground names that are going to be in this auction. So that's a great options for those who Are more comfortable. Start off with a smaller opening bid and you never know that opening bid might get you there. But worse the worse, if you get out bid remembered, everybody wins. That's what they say at GBM. So very much looking forward to it, extremely looking forward to this. It's it's Nervous about it.

Speaker 2:

Obviously, you know what want to make sure that it's successful for everybody on all ends. Again, going to be doing my part to spread in the word as much as I can and promoting it. You know, encourage everyone to do the same one of the things that I will be doing at Denver, again, in addition to connecting and networking with the people that I already know. You know hand-to-hand Conversing with them about the auction, I also have these little things made up. I'm calling them auction cards. So these are cards that I'll be able to hand out to just randos anybody I walk into, walk or Run into anyone that wants my contact. Again, though, I'm going to hand them also all the card. That's very easy for them to interact with. They'll see the auction Advertising on the front, qr code in the back. It'll take them straight to this exact auction page so that they will also, you know, be Easily able to participate as well. So, yeah, looking forward to successful auction.

Speaker 2:

Last thing I kind of wanted to discover, wanted to kind of cover, was the important importance of price discovery. We have gone through this before on other spaces. We went into it a little more detail. I did pin up at the top a blog post that we just posted to the website a little bit earlier today. So, in addition to the tech talks and AMAs, we also have just straight up blog posts and press releases on the website of IR2Mainzcom. I do encourage you to read through those.

Speaker 2:

I think, as I mentioned before, literally anything that you can think of. If it's current, I talk about it. So any question that you have about any platform or anything you want to learn, I've likely covered it. If not, you know, always hit the DMs and Suggested and get right on it. But this one in particular is about price to scale, the importance of price discovery especially.

Speaker 2:

Like I mentioned, you know these assets Are extremely volatile. We, we are very young in the space, very young in the space, and even though we're dealing with assets that are Kind of on paper, the same the, the communities and maybe even the the financial or Economic setup behind them, the structural setup behind them, you know it enables different price action on one than then on the other in the normal market. So we definitely have a need to Discover what's the true value of what we call Web3Demainz. And it's the same for any industry, every industry that has high price items, whether you're talking about art, you're talking about. You know even regular domains, web2demainz. You know auctions is how. You know a lot of those domains that that you know maybe worth millions or you know the answer to how much is worth may just be a shrug. You know these are how these assets are able to find that middle ground and and make two people happy. One person happy on the other end that's able to sell that asset for what it's worth, and the other person who, you know, isn't overpaying unless they drunk too much of the auction for the asset that they really want. So, yeah, it's especially now in this period where you know digital assets, you know, or a dime a dozen Each one of these platforms is making the ground and obviously unstoppable, has submitted itself as a behemoth. E&s has been stopped and Submitted itself as a behemoth free name as well. It'll be a lot easier for us to find, you know that price discovery for these assets, but this is one of the tools that we use to help build it. So, yeah, I encourage you guys to read through that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, the purpose of having this auction again. Pair of people with asked that they want the price. That makes sense for both parties and I hope this Tech talkers answered any questions. Anybody has thus swap thus far about the auction. Again, anybody who has received one of these forms. If you do still have any questions, you do have until Friday to submit the domain to the wallet. That's not the form. That is the form and the domain name to the wallet so that I can get it up to the contract and I can start getting ready to go to you, denver.

Speaker 2:

Okay, if you have any questions between now and then, on the form as well, there is a link that you can schedule with my can lead Calably More than happy to get on a call with you there or set up a VC and a telegram or right on here to answer any questions. You have already gone through that with a bunch of other people. But, yeah, anything we do to make this process is easy for you and for me, as possible and successful for everyone, it's possible. We're ready and willing to do. Yeah, also may have an AMA this Friday, so stay tuned for that. I'll end up announcing that one pretty quickly, probably tomorrow if we end up doing it, yeah, but that being said, if nobody else has anything, I'm gonna go back to you, mike, and I'm gonna go back to you Uh, hexkins, if you guys have anything you want to close out with any further questions, and if not, we're gonna go ahead and close us up.

Speaker 4:

Okay, right, yeah, thank you. When thank you for that? Sorry, one second.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it's sad because it doesn't have a demand. You should have already gotten yourself one, sir.

Speaker 3:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Hexkin, you have anything you want to leave us with? No, here we go. Mike's coming back, hi.

Speaker 4:

Yeah, sorry kids, they should be in bed anyway. Yeah, no, thank you for hosting the space. Obviously, everyone get involved. Do what you can Very early. Any questions you've got like you can obviously DM me when they come up and speak, but he's going to be closing out the space in a second, so be quick. And now I just want to say thank you for having me up and this is a great opportunity for everyone, so I'm definitely going to be participating and let's go. That's it from me, guys. Thank you.

Speaker 4:

And make sure you're following when and jumping his alpha groups and stay tuned, because it's free alpha at the moment. So as long as you're an OG, you'll be getting all the benefits now. So it definitely pays to be part of these alpha groups and people are doing research for you. It cuts out any doubt in your mind. People are doing this research. You can go and obviously do your own research and it validates it as well for you, and then you're getting other bits and pieces, so it makes sense. So if you're thinking about following or you're just being lazy and not doing it, just do it. Get involved and I look forward to speaking to you and connecting with you guys as well, because I'm always in the alpha groups. It's a smart move. But yeah, thank you, wen and thank you everyone for your time. Thank you.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, thank you as well, bro, Like I said, for always being here for supporting and not to just beat the same dead horse. But again, as you're saying, I should ask for it more and I really do. I'd love to get more support. Again, I give all of this freely and a lot of the alpha I give could do something for you. I'm really giving you genuine, whether it's domains or, like I said, whether you're in the Telegram group and we're talking about DJ and plays like the Solana phone, I try to give people plays or I'm always giving you plays and things that I'm in. That I think will give you value as well, Because, as we're like again, as we're building the spaces, we're starting to understand and create the value behind these names.

Speaker 2:

We do need things to keep us motivated. We need that constant education to keep us motivated about the assets that we're buying, and sometimes we need constant motivation to stay in this space and try to do as much as I can for that, for people Apparently loving everybody does rub some people wrong and that's weird and for that they purposely don't support but can only be me right and I came in the space this way. I'll leave this space this way. So for those of you who do appreciate what we're able to bring and do get something from it, I'll ask and return. I'll never ask you for no money and nothing else. I'll just ask for returns, life retweets, the ecosystem to take care of the rest.

Speaker 4:

So yeah, thank you for always bringing that up. Mike, Leave the asking money to me.

Speaker 2:

No, I'm joking guys, Please don't send my money.

Speaker 4:

There's been a few mics around. So yeah, I would never ask you for money, I'm only joking. Yeah, so yeah.

Speaker 2:

And then, yeah, also glad to have you laugh. So how you doing, King? You buying a flat buying profile, right, sir?

Speaker 5:

Yes sir, yes sir, I just wanted to pop up here and say thank you again for taking the time out of your day to cover some very important topics, a lot of great wisdom and knowledge shared here. I hope everyone was taking notes and just understanding that this space is forever growing and evolving at a rapid rate and if you're not staying tapped in to the right spaces or the right people, you're literally going to miss out on a lot of opportunities. And that even goes for staying tapped into people who are bringing it to your attention legitimate air drops and such right. I think that this is a very unique time in life where the type of space that we have it's going to be really beneficial to the people who just stay tapped in.

Speaker 5:

You don't necessarily have to spend a lot of money to educate yourself in this space, especially current day, and I think about 10 years ago when I was in college and the lack thereof access to such knowledge that I had then versus now. There's just no reason for you not to be a student of the game and just always be a learner. Such moments that they thank you for taking the time out of your day to educate the community. Look forward to your next space and again you're bringing to a point a lot of different topics, especially about digital identity. That is very important in current day. I think even myself I got to tighten up in certain areas to make sure that I'm secure across the board. So I just want to say thank you.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I appreciate the love, as always, and, just as you mentioned, we are in a great time and some of you were just now coming into this space and getting to hear all this for the first time. You're actually lucky because you didn't have to go through that horrible time that we just came through, but we're in a time where there's opportunity just all around the corner, even in digital identity. I know a lot of people are hearing about this or learning about this but still may feel like the barrier to entry means I can't get the names that I want and a lot of those great names and several different ecosystems, which is why I always try to educate about everything that's out there, so that the fit finds its choice. There are a lot of ecosystems where you can find some great names that cost almost nothing. And then, yeah, in some ecosystems you might have to hustle forward, but if the value is there for you, you'll have no problem with it. But, as you said, a lot of opportunities don't cost a dime. Both in both grinding for names, grinding for airdrops, grinding for all kinds of stuff, and so being in this space the way I'm in it I'm not just here as an educational nerd, I guess you would say and I don't say nerd or the negative way I own that word Like when you come up to me. I'm proud of the fact that I'm smart and that I'm learning tech and trying to share it with other people, but I do understand that other people do need parts of this need to be motivated by other ways as well, and I'm in this space doing that, too, simultaneously. So we're a well-rounded community that I do invite anyone to join. Extremely easy to do so.
