Hey everyone, Lisa here, Pat’s wife and indie publisher. We're planning a 45th anniversary special edition of Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave! 2000AD & Judge Dredd: The Secret History, with a new intro and an extended, extra final chapter written by Pat. It relates what’s changed for him over the last five years, leading to why he sadly and reluctantly decided to stop writing stories for
OK. I am flummoxed. Given that I am in IT this may be considered embarrassing but I am not feeling that way. I have claimed and had mined my POAP NFT, and set up a wallet (MetaMask) which I used to claim my attendance POAP. However, after days of trying, I cannot see the NFT in my wallet. I have tried importing several ways but to no avail.
Has anyone else got this working for them using MetaMask?
(Much like Gwyn, I have been avoiding crypto currencies, and blockchain in general, thus far.)
Thanks for that in depth analysis Lisa, it's clearly something you have looked into
I think the issue with NFTs was that they were initially also traded using Crypto currencies, so there was a far larger carbon footprint associated with them, and they were mostly being pushed by Crypto Bros, many of whom now have almost worthless tokens, worth a fraction of what they paid for them (look at the NFT of the first tweet as an hilarious example)
But as you point out, NFTs are so much more. I recently saw an example of them being used as tickets for a gig. That means that if the owner can no longer attend, they can sell it on at the same price and ownership moves to the new person. Right clicking wont work, because it requires ownership of the token, not just the QR Code. This can also help with scalping and ticket touts
Whilst I'd still never buy artwork as a NFT, (I prefer it on my walls), it's definitely something I'd look at for other applications, so long as Crypto currency isn't involved
I'd love to have a POAP if there are any left.....
I’d appreciate a POAP if any remain please
If any are still available, I'd be interested in a POAP.
I guess the only way to see what this is all about is to try and download one of these things. No idea what I'll do with a 'POAP' or even what a digital wallet is... sounds like something Ro-Jaws might have stashed away.
Hi Lisa - we would love a link to the POAP - and also invite Pat to come talk about these plans on our podcast that sits at the intersection of Pop Culture and Web3: www.thehyperroom.com
I confess to being intrigued. And while writing a piece on Bleeding Cool about exactly this, I guess it is time to turn it gonzo. I would like to claim a POAP
It genuinely makes my head hurt. I’m going back to my cave…
Hi Lisa, I would like one if there's any left, thanks, Stephen
Hi Lisa, I'd love to have a POAP if there are any left.
I did the whole process on my phone using a browser called Brave. I discovered that this has an inbuilt wallet. After setting up the wallet securely (I think) it took me a while to find out the wallets Ether-code. Once I found that, clicking through the link you sent and pasting the wallet’s code took me to a page where the POAP was pending. It still is, so I’ll have another look in a bit.
The tricky bit was that I was starting from scratch. It took me a while to even find my wallet once I’d set it up! If I’m honest I’d be reluctant to commit any money by the process just yet. Maybe 1 or more of these mini-nfts to practice on?
I’m not entirely sure what my POAP is, but I’m happy to put my trust in this team. I’m still the kind of reader who prefers hard copies of stuff, although it’s a very fine line between colllecting and hoarding!
I’ve always tried to support the Millsverse materials directly, tempted by the freebies on offer (signed scripts, signed books, free stories and comics). I’ll try and continue to do so, but it proved to be a challenge to mint the POAP so the more instructions you can provide, the better!
Looking forward to the updated history of 2000ad. It’s a shame that Ro-Jaws won’t speak with his creator’s voice again, but the lack of 2000ad strips frees up time to revisit Requiem.
If there's any left, I'd like a POAP please and thank you!
