Provenance: Since time immemorial (ok, maybe only since April 9th), @BitsTODAY has showered the BitClout community (and beyond) with entertaining recaps of everything happening on the greatest decentralized, crypto-native social media platform in the world. Weโ€™ve published four editions weekly for three months straight, not to mention a number of special editions and endless engagement on-platform, in telegram and discord, and even in Miami ๐ŸŒด! How do we do it? It's simple really (even if not easy). We're fueled by a ๐Ÿ”ฅ passion ๐Ÿ”ฅ for the BitClout community, for puns about ๐Ÿ‹s and ๐Ÿฆs, and for the innumerable friends weโ€™ve made (even if half of them are ๐Ÿค–s).

BitClout and @BitsTODAY are all about community. To commemorate the first 50 editions of @BitsTODAY, we wanted to do something special that's equal parts exclusive in terms of rarity and inclusive in terms of still offering lots of ways for the community to get involved. As we transition from a brand building phase of our journey to one in which we focus more on monetization, we also want to make sure we do so in an intuitive, authentic, and above all, transparent manner.

Without further ado โ€ฆ ๐Ÿฅ drum roll please ๐Ÿฅ โ€ฆ we announce, NF50! ๐Ÿพ


What is it:


How it works:


Rationale:

In the spirit of building in public and transparency, we want to provide rationale for decisions we made with this NFT release. Here are responses to questions we anticipate the community may have:

"Why are you releasing NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain?"

One of our goals with the NF50 drop is inclusivity. We know from discussions with community members that some NFT collectors are very active on Ethereum blockchain based marketplaces. Transparently, we also hope that the (ideal) success of NF50 will generate interest in @BitsTODAY and BitClout from those who are more active on the Ethereum blockchain. Even more transparently, we're also average joes, and ETH provides an as-of-yet more seamless way to pay the bills ๐Ÿ’ก.

"Why are you releasing multiple series of NFTs?"

We recognize we have different audiences in the @BitsTODAY family. We are fortunate enough to have the support of some G-block ๐Ÿ‹s and BitClout OG's who have backed us from Edition 001. We reckon this audience may be more interested in a truly exclusive NFT with special perqs. While many of the covers submitted for @BitsTODAY to date have been GIFs, we chose to make the 1/1 of the only dynamic version as the production effort for this piece of art was significantly higher than for the static versions, and because we wanted to appropriately distinguish between the 1/1 and the static series.

In parallel, we serve a community of 'clouters who come from all means and backgrounds. We hope to serve them with our 25x editions on BitClout and OpenSea. Our hope is that anyone who loves @BitsTODAY will find the prices on these drops accessible.
