Weirdo's Weekly Update — 24 October, 2022

Traveling, what's next?

We arrived in Hua Hin on Saturday and settled in our new (temporary) home for the next two weeks. We are staying in a complex with a huge pool and great amenities. If you end up in Hua Hin, we recommend looking at accommodations in La Casita.

The ride to Hua Hin on an old, noisy train was a great experience. We had some lovely views and the opportunity to see the entrepreneurial spirit of Thai people selling all possible food and refreshments during the 5h travel. It's great to be next to the seaside again. We took a long walk on the beach and strolled around the small streets on Sunday, and we LOVE it here. Traffic is crazy, as probably in every Thai city, but you can feel the chillness that comes with the proximity of the seaside compared to Bangkok. We will report more on it next week when we explore more.

What are we working on?

The NEW WORLD GUARDIANS mint is happening next week on Nov 1st, and we had our first AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) yesterday in our Discord. It was fun, so we decided to do another AMA a Twitter Space Tuesday at 18:30 CET. It will be fantastic if you have time to join.

Crypto News

My current series is The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power, and I like it a lot. The landscapes and special effects are amazing, supported with great characters and the story.

Tool of the week

Gamification is a way to bring elements of games to daily life and make them more attractive. This week, I want to introduce two web3 tools that help you to build an engaged community through riddles, quizzes, giveaways, and more.

With the New World Guardians, we are running an NFT Giveaway where you can win a free NFT:

To run the giveaway, we are using the tools from Crew3.

The second one is Sparkwave. It is a similar tool where you can run Quests and Giveaways to keep your Web3 audience engaged. We are using it to run a Whitelist Spot giveaway:

Since we are in the bear market, we notice that it is more challenging to keep the crowd engaged and interested. These tools help with to get more engagement, of course, if used correctly.

Something to think about

"To get on the path of success, we need a plan.

To achieve success, we need to be flexible when the path is blocked."- Simon Sinek.


"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln. Sometimes we want to start walking without knowing where we want to go. Do you just want to be busy, or do you want to come closer to your goals?
