    Lots of interesting stuff coming up recently so thought i'd start a thread for interesting projects we know about. Stuff like new tech, NFT, crypto ....essentially anything that would count as early adoption and possibly be a major advantage to get in early on.

    So... referral links okay but if someone has already done the project, please don't mention again or use your own. I'll start with one on next post.

    Earth2

    https://earth2.io

    So basically, new project that involves recreating the mapped topography of the earth for a future gaming / VR environment. When built, it seem like it will be a clean slate, so the Eifel tower won’t appear where it is, but there has been a MASSIVE land grab already in terms of people buying up famous places. Land value is increasing rapidly, so the quicker you get I, cheaper it is. Millions being spent already. and businesses being set up around it. I suspect will be huge in 3/4 years.



    There are already massive megacities being planned and people buying in those areas. Early days but looks very interesting, and the gaming world seem suitably enthused by it all which is a great sign. They are still building it all, but initial video look convincing.







    If you buy land, use K7ZRHKBB6Y and you get 5% extra for initial launch.

    Helium Network

    https://www.helium.com/

    New network being built by people buying specific routers that mine and generate crypto to provide LoRa network for the IoT. So... tracker, sensors, farming , industrial automation etc. You basically buy router and it provides coverage for a larger area than wifi ( think km's rather than meters) using 668mhz in the uk. At the point where hardware is already backlogged, and I think a really interesting project.

    I have already been running 3 of these and its alreay paid for itself , made made profit in less than 4 months. I'm waiting for more. Rewards will decrease as network increases, so again, best to get in early if you find it interesting. Ideally you need to be in an area where they can talk to each other but be more than 300m apart.

    This map gives you an idea on the size of the project.Currently over 18k hotspots ( 3 of which are mine lol) , they think will hit critical mass at 100k, which it will get to. Hardware manufacturing catch up is issue at mo, but thats being sorted.

    Indoor and high density vertical farming - I've loved this concept for a while and received an investment pitch on it earlier today, which brought it back to mind.

    @dee this Earth2 is confusing to me. What's the benefit? Why are people buying land in a virtual world? Is this like some sort of big game? Also, GaryVee mentioned NFT the other day, I'd be interested in your thoughts on it (and anybody else).

    Essentially yes..... its potentially a massive VR / game experience. In fact, no one is quite sure what it will turn into, and even the devs are keeping quiet about their plans and not saying anything other than they are working on the engine to make it all work ( which sounds bizzare) bur initial stuff seems good. It's kinda why i started the thread.... there is stuff going on that can potentially make you life changing money for a few quid now. There are people that got in way before me, that in 3/4 years potentially have millions in real estate in real money for very liitle right now if it goes the way the devs want. It's potentially like having spent 1000 bucks on bitcoin in 2011 is the best description i can come up with. Although you have to sort the wheat from the chaff. Theres a lot out there.

    NFT is a one off, non replicable digital asset. It could be a picture, a video, text , anything. If you have the right one, its like having the most collectable baseball card thats worth 10 million bucks. It cant be replicated, Its just the modern equivalent in terms of blockchain tech. There is serious money already changing hands. It really is a sea change at the mo. I'm just interested in potentially benig onboard.

    EDIT. I will say... you asked what the benifit is. People are excited about potentially playing in a real sized world. And building whatever they want on their own space virtually. And a lot of the early adopters are interested in making money long term. Were alreay in a place where it costs 50 bucks to buy 1 10m x 10m space in some places as the first levels of land grab sold out. It was a sliding scale.

    SEDITION ART

    https://seditionart.com/i/a1c170c6

    Forgot to mention this one. If you're into art , it a new site for limited edition digital art. Lots of great new artists and a smattering of well known artists. For instance, I can say I own a Damien Hirst and it's actually true lol.

    There seems to be a decent market growing on there aswell. Each art comes with digi cert etc and they have apps / subscription model for displaying art
