Description

Overpriced JPEGs is a show about NFTs and the Metaverse! Most people think they’re bad art and everyone else can’t stop talking, thinking, and buying them. They’re non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and they’re taking over your Twitter feed. The blockchain space is moving too fast to keep track of everything that’s happening. Join Carly Reilly, Andrew Yang’s former finance director, for the Overpriced JPEGs podcast from the Bankless network. This is the best way to get the latest NFT and metaverse news and interviews with the people shaping our future, so you can decide for yourself if these are just overpriced JPEGs or technology that will change the world.

https://www.niftygateway.com/collections/18-and-over 
Available through Friday, August 12th

On today’s episode, Carly is joined by director Jimmy Giannoupolous, entrepreneur Vincent Harrison, and (drumroll) actress Ashley Benson! – best known for her role starring in the hit series Pretty Little Liars – to talk about their latest film 18 and Over, which is being released first to 18 and Over NFT holders only.

In this first-of-its-kind episode Carly attempts to speak not only to her NFT-native audience, but also our friends outside the NFT industry. The four talk about why NFTs matter, social media’s impact on Hollywood and Ashley’s career, how the media get it wrong (whether about celebrities or crypto!), and how 18 and Over is trying to build a new model for film development and movie collectibles!

Plus, Carly and Vincent nerd out about why NFTs are a perfect fit for the film industry, how Vincent and team are trying to bring back the digital version of “DVD director’s cuts,” and the clever “rebate” program Vincent has implemented to additionally reward NFT holders.

Enjoy!

This week Carly and Zeneca get into how the macro landscape has shifted since Zeneca’s last time on, which A-list celebrities launched projects and their chances of survival, ultra hot blue chip activity. Lastly, Carly shares some spicy crypto Twitter takes and gets Zeneca’s reaction to them!

As always (this one in particular), we hope you enjoy this week’s Moment of Zen(eca) with Zeneca_33 :)

ENS Domain Frenzy, Reddit & 9GAG NFTs, and Minions | Overpriced JPEGs Recap #29
39:22

✨ SUBSCRIBE TO THE OVERPRICED JPEGS CHANNEL ✨
https://bankless.cc/jpegs 

———
Volume in the NFT markets might be low, but spirits are high. Blue chips are holding strong and some hot new trends like premium ENS Domains are flaring up, even though summer is traditionally a quieter season for NFTs.

Universal is outplaying Disney with their approach to copyright enforcement, flooding the pop culture landscape with Minions, memes, and user-generated content.

Reddit and 9gag are falling down the NFT rabbit hole, the revolving door of OpenSea drama keeps turning, and what’s the deal with the Lonely Ape Dating Club??

Turns out, this summer might be hotter than we thought.

Are Metaverse Land Sales a Good Strategy? | Overpriced JPEGs #35
54:27

✨ SUBSCRIBE TO THE OVERPRICED JPEGS CHANNEL ✨
https://bankless.cc/jpegs 

As the idea of “the metaverse” grows in popularity, projects selling land in their own metaverse grows more popular too. But is this really a good long-term strategy?

In this episode, Carly sits down with Lars Doucet, the Co-Founder of Level Up Labs, a consulting firm focused on blockchain gaming.

Lars is a digital land expert who has studied what happens when you sell “land-like assets” in virtual worlds. (Hint: digital economy land recessions). He explains why selling land can be a losing strategy, the situations in which it does work, and how some of these high-profile projects who have already started selling land (**cough cough Otherside, cough cough Axie Infinity**) can do from here to prevent the worst from happening.

Digital land is one of, if not THE hot topic of NFTs as of late and it’s important we all understand it a little better.

The FULL Aku Story with Founder, Micah Johnson | Overpriced JPEGs #31
01:11:05

✨ SUBSCRIBE TO THE OVERPRICED JPEGS CHANNEL ✨
https://bankless.cc/jpegs 

AkuDreams recently made headlines for their $34M smart contract mistake. But long before that, Aku founder and artist, Micah Johnson, was making headlines for his groundbreaking project.

Aku became one of the first NFT projects to be optioned by a major Hollywood studio and is currently working with former Lucas film executives to develop a feature-length film using Aku IP.

In his first press appearance since the Akutar auction, Micah Johnson, the former MLB player turned artist, joins Carly to discuss how to create lasting IP, what it was like transitioning from being a professional athlete to a professional artist to a CEO, why Unreal Engine is so important to the metaverse, and, of course, that notorious smart contract error.

This is a project built to last a bear market, so don’t miss it!

A Paradigm Shift in Hollywood: The New NFT $$ Maker | Overpriced JPEGs #30
53:31

✨ SUBSCRIBE TO THE OVERPRICED JPEGS CHANNEL ✨
https://bankless.cc/jpegs 

In this episode, Carly is joined by Feature co-founders Dennis Alshuler – a successful entrepreneur and business development executive – and Steven Ilous – an entertainment executive who’s previously worked on films including the Matrix & the Polar Express.

Feature is a web3 studio powering creators, brands, and the future of entertainment. Their licensing platform is currently being used by Coinbase to cast Bored Apes in their upcoming film series.

Steven and Dennis break down this new world of NFT licensing: how people are making money licensing their NFTs, how big the market for licensed NFTs might be, and how to make sure you, as an NFT holder, stay protected.

We also discuss the broader shifts that are underway in consumer behaviors, why Unreal Engine 5 is a big deal for the metaverse, and how the old Hollywood studio model is broken.

Enjoy!

Nifty Gateway Co-Founders on NFTs & Marketplace Innovation | Overpriced JPEGs #27
54:45

✨ SUBSCRIBE TO THE OVERPRICED JPEGS CHANNEL ✨
https://bankless.cc/jpegs 

It’s the 420 episode y’all! This week, Carly talks to Duncan and Griffin Cock Foster, co-founders of Nifty Gateway – one of the first ever NFT marketplaces.

The three delve into the evolution of NFTs, the twins’ predictions for where NFTs are headed, and Nifty’s newly launched, non-custodial NFT marketplace which will have 70% lower gas fees than their competitors. We also get a little technical in this one: breaking down how that gas optimization works and what it could mean for other marketplaces and the future of interchain operability for NFTs.

Plus, we had to ask the twins what it was really like growing up with the last name Cock Foster 😂😂.

If you want to understand more about what’s happening under the hood of NFT smart contracts (and you should), this one’s for you!

Let us know your thoughts on Nifty Gateway in the comments below or on Twitter @overpricedjpegs!

Inside the Mind of Danny Cole | Overpriced JPEGs #26
02:07:39

In this episode, Carly interviews the one and only Danny Cole – in person! Danny is the mastermind and artist behind Creature World, a first of its kind NFT project that is pushing the boundaries of NFTs artistically and creatively.

Creature World captured the attention of big names in the NFT space from day one: from GaryVee, to Kevin Rose, to, even, Shaquille O’Neal. And at 22 years old, Danny’s not close to done.

What were some of the transformative experiences that shaped him into the artist he is today? From getting his start in high school – where he managed to get himself a job art directing at Coachella – to the biggest lessons he’s learned so far in life, this 2 hour conversation covers it all! Enjoy :).

PROOF & Moonbirds with Kevin Rose & Co-Founders | Overpriced JPEGs #25
56:58

In this episode, Carly sits in studio with the founding team behind PROOF Collective and Moonbirds, Kevin Rose, Ryan Carson, & Justin Mezzell. Moonbirds is PROOF’s first 10k pfp project that’s launching on April 16th.

Could this be the most successful project drop of the year? Ever? The team behind it definitely has the experience, creativity, and influence to put this hypothesis to the test. Kevin and the team also leak major alpha around a new all-star engineer who will be joining them shortly.

Who might that be? What innovations are they going to deploy? What decisions were made with their drop mechanics and why? How are they thinking about building out their own interoperable metaverse? Find out the answers to these questions and so much more in the interview.

FEWOCiOUS on Life, Art, & NFTs | Overpriced JPEGs #24
01:11:42

In this episode, Carly chats with 19-year-old phenom artist, FEWOCiOUS. He’s the youngest artist to do a Sotheby’s drop, has also done a Christie’s drop, and partnered with RTFKT to do a shoe drop that raised $3M in seven minutes.

And this weekend he’s dropping something new and very exciting—FewoWorld, a “Paint Drop” that is as innovative as it is beautiful. The presale & public sale will start on April 3rd and close on April 4th on Nifty Gateway (links below).

What’s FewoWorld and the intricacies of Paint Drop? How did FEWOCiOUS’s challenging upbringing shape him to become the successful and beautiful person he is today? Answers to these questions and SO much more in the episode!

What Are On-Chain NFTs? with J1mmy.eth | Overpriced JPEGs #19
01:14:44

In this episode, Carly chats with Jimmy McNelis, better known as j1mmy.eth. J1mmy is the Founder & CEO of nft42, a serious NFT OG, and an outspoken advocate of on-chain art. If you don’t know exactly what “on-chain art” means, why it’s important, or how it’s done, then you absolutely need to tune into this episode.

The two also talk CyberBrokers - one of the hottest new projects and one that is carrying the on-chain art torch.

AND finally, j1mmy helps break down the recent Yuga Labs acquisition of Meebits and Punks. As a holder of 60 Bored Apes, 86 Mutant Apes, 86 Meebits, & 5 CryptoPunks, J1mmy is well-positioned to give his thoughts :)

Rug Radio: Decentralized Media with Farokh & Mel | Overpriced JPEGs #18
01:35:06

In this episode, Carly brings on Rug Radio’s Founder, Farokh and Tokenomics Advisor, Mel to discuss the fascinating complexities of this innovative project. With one of the largest holder communities in the space, people are gravitating towards Rug Radio’s long-term vision like no other.

The potential of this project to become an HBS case study one day is high (to say the least). There’s also a very good chance that Rug Radio will be the reason traditional media companies start building their own web3 teams or pivoting their business models completely.

Why is Rug Radio the future? What does world-class decentralized media look like? How exactly is Rug Radio rewriting the traditional media playbook? Find out all that and so much more in the episode!

Lobby3: Web3 Lobbying with Andrew Yang | Overpriced JPEGs #17
58:25

In this episode, Carly and special guest—Bankless’s David Hoffman—chat with former presidential candidate Andrew Yang about his recent launch of Lobby3, a web3 lobbying effort that’s combating poverty and a whole lot more.

Those in crypto know that regulation is right around the corner. However, large crypto companies and venture firms can’t be the only ones (nor is it always in their best interest) to be lobbying for the future of the crypto space.

Lobby3 is trying to advance economic opportunity and Web3 technology in Washington. How are they doing it? Why and how can you get involved? Find out that and so much more in the episode!

URGENT: How Web3 Can Help Ukraine with Pussy Riot & UkraineDAO
23:21

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for this 20-minute conversation with Nadya from Pussy Riot and Trippy of Trippy Labs about UkraineDAO - an NFT/crypto fundraising effort to provide medical care for people in Ukraine impacted by the war.

If you don’t know Nadya, she is a founding member of the Russian, feminist, punk group Pussy Riot and previously spent two years in a Russian prison for protesting Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian regime.

Trippy is a world-class artist and activist - having previously established the FreeRossDAO.

Please take the time to listen to this one – sooner rather than later – to hear Nadya’s thoughts on the war and how you can help the important work that she, Trippy, and others are doing.

You can donate to UkraineDAO and their efforts here: https://www.ukrainedao.love/ The NFT portion of their fundraiser will close this Wednesday, March 2nd, so time is of the essence.

Decentralizing Hollywood with DeadHeads Co-Founders | Overpriced JPEGs #11
01:17:43

Jeremy Jenson (@JeremyJenson_) & teMpo (@_teMpoFU) are the Co-Founders of DeadHeads, a multimedia NFT project that’s disrupting Hollywood. How? You might be wondering. One of the many ways is via the technical innovation behind their animated series that allows for distributed IP!

Imagine minting The Simpson’s couch on episode one and holding that digital prop for all these years. Might resell for a pretty penny nowadays! Now stop imagining because this is exactly what the DeadHeads community is doing with their animated series. They’ve differentiated themselves like no other project in the space.

Web3 is coming for Hollywood just like it has for pretty much every other industry thus far. In this episode, you’ll learn firsthand what it takes to decentralize Hollywood, key insights in building IP that lasts for the long term, and how Jeremy & teMpo are thinking about the future of the space.

Former Disney Studio Exec Explains Intellectual Property | Overpriced JPEGs #10
01:16:24

Jon Rogers (https://twitter.com/VanFalk_) was the founding executive of Disney’s Franchise Management division in 2005. He and his team were responsible for building some of the world’s most recognized franchises in history. Intellectual Property such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Cars, and many more beloved Disney franchises were assembled and built to last by his division.

As with everyone and their mother, Hollywood is trying to figure out the world of NFTs as fast as humanly possible too. After more than 20 years in Franchise Management & IP, Jon’s taken his previous learnings and expertise to the current (and fast-evolving) crypto and NFT space. Today he shares many of the lessons and foundational ideas he has around brand building and the future of the industry at large.

There are more nuggets of wisdom in this interview than we have space to write in this description. If you’re a fan of Disney, NFTs, and the future of Intellectual Property, you truly don’t want to miss this deep dive! This, is Overpriced JPEGs.

NFT's Next Big Unlock | Overpriced JPEGs with GET Protocol
01:08:51

Colby Mort & Olivier Biggs lead the marketing team at GET Protocol, one of the earliest blockchain event ticketing platforms in the space. GET has had such a fascinating journey and if it weren’t for the current global pandemic, things would be even more intriguing than they already are.

GET Protocol participated in the ICO craze of 2017 and unfortunately, even with a more than functioning product, were only able to raise a portion of what they had set out for. However, they didn’t let this deter them and they have the track record to prove it. With their eyes set on a fully decentralized protocol and plans to be the web3 bridge for the events industry, this is truly just the beginning.

In this interview, Colby and Olivier cover why blockchain ticketing is the future, why it isn’t mainstream yet, and so much more. Potential token alpha?! Only one way to find out.

The Future of Trading Card NFTs | Overpriced JPEGs with Franklin Fitch
01:30:58

Franklin Fitch (@Fitchinverse) is the Director of Growth/Marketing for Parallel—one of the highest touted digital trading card games (TCGs) in crypto. Franklin gives a 101 breakdown of Parallel’s sci-fi backstory, lore, community, roadmap, and so much more.

Parallel is redefining TCGs from the ground up and rewriting traditional “NFT Project” playbooks one page at a time. With over 30,000 active holders, 35,000 discord members, and 73,000 Twitter followers, Franklin and the Parallel community believe this is just the beginning.

Legacy trading card games such as Magic the Gathering, Pokémon, and Hearthstone have largely ignored crypto. However, Franklin gives credit where credit is due as he recognizes that these games built the foundation for Parallel—and even inspired the Parallel we know and love today.

Franklin has been in and around the crypto space for years, and you can hear the experience in his voice. Parallel’s vision for the future is equally as inspiring as the team helping to build it into reality.

4 - Clon | The Cool Cat
01:13:18

Clon is the founder and artist behind the NFT sensation Cool Cats. Striking a delicate balance between cool and cute, the massive success of this project is a testament to the importance of a good founding team and strong values.

We discuss how Clon fell into the NFT space and found a perfect product-market fit with his work and style. We cover the power of community, dive into tokenomics, and explore how breaking into NFTs actually works.

Although the market is (over)saturated with PFP projects, there are reasons why the cream rises to the top. Tune in and find out.

3 - Mack Flavelle | The Pink Cat Villain
01:07:24

Mack Flavelle is the Co-Founder of CryptoKitties, Dapper Labs, and Big Head Club. CryptoKitties was instrumental in establishing the ERC-721 standard, which is the base for the vast majority of NFTs. Mack helped launch NBA Top Shot and StonerCats, and that just begins to cover his impact in the space.

Needless to say, Mack has had a prolific career and pioneered many innovations for NFTs. His creativity and boundless energy powers this conversation about the history of culture on the blockchain, and a discussion of his more recent and upcoming projects leads to bold predictions about the future.

Mack is a fascinating character, and we wouldn't expect anything less from one of the founding fathers of the NFT movement.

2 - Zeneca_33 | Approaching the NFT Market
01:12:16

Zeneca_33 is an NFT influencer, thought leader, and community member (whatever your preferred term is). After playing poker professionally, Zeneca fell down the NFT rabbit hole in early 2021 and has quickly amassed a huge following. His takes are often sobering and always even-keeled, which is incredibly valuable in this emotional and chaotic market.

We knew Zeneca had to be one of the first guests on the show. His wisdom and knowledge are reality checks for any type of market, and we go through his approach to the space, how he picks projects, and his own project - ZenAcademy.

TRAILER: Overpriced JPEGs, with Carly Reilly
01:51

Welcome to Overpriced JPEGs, the newest podcast out of Bankless!

BRAND NEW HOST: The Fabulous Carly Reilly!

Most people think they’re bad art and everyone else can’t stop talking, thinking, and buying them. They’re non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and they’re taking over your Twitter feed.

The blockchain space is moving too fast to keep track of everything that’s happening.

Join Carly Reilly, Andrew Yang’s former finance director, for the Overpriced JPEGs podcast from the Bankless network. This is the best way to get the latest NFT and metaverse news and interviews with the people shaping our future, so you can decide for yourself if these are just overpriced JPEGs or technology that will change the world.
