First off, if you had asked me two weeks ago if I would be privy to a half million dollar NFT deal for a space-themed metaverse game, I would have thought you were crazy. Maybe I should stop thinking that. So last Saturday, we formally launched a dao to pool funds to buy these Star Atlas meta-posters, and yesterday, one of the members has entered into a simple agreement for future tokens (SAFT) for the entire set. It’s nuts. The deal is still being worked, but it’s pretty much a sure thing from my understanding, so now there’s a bit less pressure on me to move fast.
We are still going to be working out lots more details in the next couple days. I’ve got to figure out my stake, within this side deal, and how we integrate it into the broader organization that is the Interstellar Alliance. There is a lot of work to do. I have a call with a hedge fund guy who invests in the NFT space, so we’ll see if he’s interested in participating.
I’ve got a busy day. I’m still technically employed, so I do have a couple outstanding issues that I have to deal with. My mom is stopping by for breakfast on her way through town, and I was supposed to meet my boss for lunch later today. That’s going to be an interesting meal. We also have a “date” with a local entrepreneur and his wife, we’re going to bring the kids over for a swim and hang out, so I’m looking forward to that.
One thing is clear to me already. Quitting my job is opening up a host of possibilities that I don’t think I would have access to if I was still trying to hold onto it. Of course we’ll see how it turns out in the long term, but right now, it’s looking pretty damn good.
