On today’s episode, we’ll break down:
7 people you should be following on Twitter to increase your NFT signal
Current DripVault value is estimated at 13.38ETH (~$33,850) (13.28ETH in NFT assets + .10ETH liquid) on cost basis of 2.41ETH.
NFTs as a market has been significantly crushed over the last few weeks due to fears of a global recession on the backs of the war in Ukraine.
Our positions have held up fairly well week to week and we still have long-term conviction.
We considered selling off our BYO Pills assets given the run up and upcoming release of Crafts, but decided against it. Prices look like they have held up week to week and we will continue to monitor the situation.
As referenced last week, the DripVault will be funded via:
Revenue allocated from collection drops (first drop coming in the next few months)
Reinvesting profits from sold positions (we have not sold anything since Creepz)
Without much liquidity, we haven’t made any significant moves.
7 NFT “must follows” to improve your NFT signal
Sometimes we overcomplicate this game.
At the end of the day, 99% of people playing in crypto have 2 goals:
Build/play/grow something exciting
Both really boil down to getting the right signal in and filtering the wrong noise out.
The best signal gives you simple rationale for which plays to make (money) and ideas/frameworks/projects for which things to work on (build).
There are a few people on Twitter that seem to be operating at a higher frequency when it comes to web3 ideas and original thinking.
Here are 7 of my favorites…
1. Chris Dixon (lead web3 investor @a16z)
Chris’s signal:noise ratio is one of the highest I’ve seen across any space on Twitter.
He’s an incredibly clear thinker and his superpower is distilling complex concepts into simple ideas that a beginner can understand.
Here’s one of my favorite recent threads from him about why you should build your company in web3 👇
2. Punk 6529 (Anon punk holder with great threads)
Nobody knows who Punk 6529 really is, but if you’re in the crypto world, you should be following them.
They seem to be the most prescient thinker about macro trends and the way attention, capital and ideas will flow throughout the web3 ecosystem.
They are really good about stacking threads within each other to create an easily accessible database of information.
Here’s a great place to dive in 👇
6529 @punk65291/ On A Pathway To An Open Metaverse We are going to make a run at changing the arc of history. It is a Return of the Jedi vs the Death Star style mission. They have the money and the power. We mostly have our brains, our community and gm. But it might be just enough
3. Chris Cantino (Co-Founder of Color Capital and ClubCPG)
Chris was the CMO of Schmidt’s Naturals before it was acquired by Unilever. Now he’s Co-Founder of Color Capital and created ClubCPG, a small yet powerful web3 collective that has an alpha group and consultancy to help onboard brands into web3.
I love following him because he has a unique consumer lens on his web3/NFT takes. Like the others on this list so far, he’s an incredibly clear thinker and articulates his points in a simple way.
One of my favorite threads from him explores several different future use cases for NFTs 👇
4. Aaron Wright (Co-Founder of Color Capital and ClubCPG)
Aaron is a Professor at Cardozo Law School and a Co-Founder of Tribute Labs, The Lao and Flamingo DAO.
His insight isn’t exclusive to the intersection of legal <> web3, but he’s one of the foremost thinkers in that space.
This is one of my favorite tweets from him 👇
5. DCInvestor (Aftab Hossain)
DC Investor is one of the most prolific NFT collectors in the world.
He has a “Naval-esque” vibe about the way he shares ideas which always seems to leave me thinking more deeply about the state of the landscape.
I didn’t know a ton about him before diving in, so this tweet with a Bankless interview on his background and investment thesis was super valuable 👇
6. DFarmer (anon NFT degen and DeFi farmer)
One of the best things about the crypto world is that we get to judge people based on their ideas and transactions (bets) vs who they are and what they look like.
I have no idea who DFarmer is, but I know he has great takes and an incredible NFT portfolio.
He also always injects some unexpected humor into the day. Exhibit A 👇
7. DCLBlogger (Matty, founder of The Metakey)
Matty is another person on Twitter who was early to NFTs and has a clean thread of high quality insight.
He is building his own project (The Metakey) but shares macro takes on the space and dives into moves he’s making. He also has a great YouTube channel that covers all things NFTs - highly recommend it!
Here’s one of my favorite tweets from him about 25 industries that are being disrupted by NFTs 👇

What is Sunday:Drip?
Sunday:Drip is a member-owned lifestyle brand built on web3 rails. That means our members will have the opportunity to become owners (when we release our token) and experience financial upside as the brand grows. Some members will also choose to take a more active role in helping grow the brand and can be rewarded disproportionately for their contributions.
Additionally, all members have the right to claim a myriad of other membership benefits including collection drop advantages, fractional ownership of the DripVault, lootbox partnerships, whitelists/giveaways, curated alpha channel, gated content and more.
The majority of our discord is member-only, but we’ve created a couple of public facing channels to help get you up to speed on what we offer.
You can read more about our member benefits here → https://discord.gg/afxf2b9EEU
You can read more about our strategy here → https://discord.gg/KR7jZ3heCM
Today, you can become a member by minting one of our sundae NFT membership passes. Owning a sundae NFT (pre-token) guarantees a token allocation and future ownership in the brand.
