Introduction to Warpcast

Warpcast is your ticket to the wild world of $Degens, where the digital realm is your playground! Think of it as the cool cousin of Friendtech or Axie Infinity, but with a twist. It’s a no-brainer interface where you can snag, flip, and trade these shiny digital treasures.

It’s all about making connections and having a blast while you’re at it.

And hey, it also got your back with nifty tools to keep you in the loop. Price change alerts? Check. New listings/NFT minting? Double-check. And filters so fine, they’ll help you sift through the noise like a pro. Just remember, a little homework goes a long way in this game.

Now, let’s talk about the big cheese, Vitalik Buterin(yes, the one and only Vitalik is an OG of Warpcast too with his FID at 5650😉), and his article “Degen Communism: The Only Correct Political Ideology.” He’s all about sharing the digital wealth, and guess what? Warpcast is THE answer! It’s the place where everyone gets a fair shot at the digital gold rush, trading $Degens like a boss.

These are some of the best channels to be in if you are a newbie and later I will share the trick to find the most happening channels that you can join and make some new friends along the way to help each other to get the treasures together, don't have the scarcity mentality, it's a different Universe here where everyone can win if we just help each other, remember that we are all comrades in this Degen Communism movement! 🫂🧑‍🤝‍🧑

How To Do?

Now you are onboard and joined those channels that I recommended, what's next then?When I started my journey, I had to explore the vast Warpcast Universe(WCU) all by myself but luckily you have this Guide now, so the next step is to follow the whales and swim with them as fast as you can as they have the most allocation to tip for all of us to get the $Degen points which will convert to $Degen coins that will be airdropped by end of Season 3 (end of April tentatively).

But wait! There is a very simple step you must do first before start to engage with the communities and follow the whales as not many are realizing this simple yet powerful step can help you to navigate the WCU(Warpcast Universe) easier than those who don't... 😎

Use a PC/Laptop to login to Warpcast instead of your mobile(phone) as you will not lose out a lots of features (such as Bookmarking the casts you want to refer back later, signing the transaction on your Metamask or other wallets for minting NFT etc.) and won't get that dizzy feeling with scrolling all the casts on that tiny screen(that dizziness😵 made me wanted to quit the app initially) until I found out what I was doing wrong which I wish someone would have told me about it instead of me figuring it out after so many sleepless hours wandering around in the ever expanding WCU on my phone...😢

I have created a video on Drakula (will share more about this Tiktok like app of Warpcast later) if you like to know about it by letting me know as this is another avenue where you can earn some $Degen and make the most out of your time in WCU.

After you have done that, the first thing you must understand is the concept of how to get the $Degen points which entitles you to earn that amount of $Degen coin at the end of Season 3 Airdrop if you are not financially able to buy the 10k $Degen (cost a few hundred USD now instead of just tens of dollars back then).

There are many useful resources that I don't want to keep on repeating here so I am including some of the best guides that I have come across in the WCU, so do go to connect with them and read about their casts and if you are lucky, follow them so that you can get some tips from them and pay it forward when you are able to do so. 😉🎩

/When we stand on the shoulders of giants, we can see further but I might have miss out some of the best guides written by other giants in the WCU so do feel free to leave me some comments on the best guides you might have come across before so that I can update the list of resources for the newbies to digest before they start their $Degen journey.

To Know Thyself Be True

In this exciting digital frontier, there's no room for hesitation or self-doubt. Regardless of your background - tech whiz or not, creative souls or just an average human being - there's a place for everyone in the Warpcast Universe. If you're the creative type, channel your energy into creating unique and compelling art, music, videos or contents that will catch the eye of potential followers. On the other hand, if you're more technically inclined, you can delve deep into Frames which is what set Warpcast apart from the other social media app out there, a game changer indeed (just for the curious minds newbies, it's like a mini application in Warpcast that allows you to interact with the reader of your cast like claiming airdrops, check your stats etc.). The beauty of Warpcast Universe is its embrace of diversity; every member brings something different to the table. It’s a blend of minds and talents that makes the community vibrant and inclusive. So, know yourself, identify your strengths, and leverage them to make your mark in the Warpcast universe.

How to get tipped $DEGEN for Newbies who can't afford to buy the 10k $DEGEN to get Airdrop?

Last week Ciniz (He's The No.1 OG in the WCU whom you can't afford not to follow) casted that he will be tipping his allowance away if you just do perform simple tasks.

I was struggling with minting my NFT on Zora at first due to lack of technical know how until I managed to find out the root cause (USE the PC/laptop instead of mobile😅) and I hope this sharing of mine will make you newbies to be successful in claiming some $DEGEN when Airdrop Season 3 is over by the end of April as I already disqualified due to my inadvert mistake of spamming (until now I still don't know which cast(s) of mine caused me to lose everything😢).

First and foremost, make sure you have some ETH ($10 should be sufficient) in your BASE network of your crypto wallet (Metamask is fine). If you don't know how to do that, can search by typing in the keyword "How to send ETH to Base network in Metamask?" (If you are using a CEX account, can buy some ETH there and choose Base Mainnet network to send to your Metamask/other wallet instead of the ERC-20 network to save on the high gas fees).

Minting an NFT on Zora involves the following steps:

  1. Make sure you have a wallet (like MetaMask) with Ethereum (ETH) in it for gas fees.

  2. Navigate to Zora's website and click on "Connect Wallet" in the top right corner. Select your wallet (MetaMask, for example), and follow the prompts to connect.

  3. Once connected, click on "Create(the button)" on the top navigation bar.

  4. You will see a form where you can upload your file (image, video, audio, or 3D model), and provide details about your work, including its name, description, and any additional attributes. Price set to 0 ETH and in order to fulfill the point no. 5 of 50/50 split on Zora, click on the View advanced options and refer to the following photo for better understanding of how to perform the step and remember to set the Mint limit per address to Custom (and type in 1). (USE a PC/laptop as there is no way to click the enter button to add the address on the phone!🥲)

  5. After filling out all the necessary information, review your listed details carefully. If everything is correct, click "Mint".

  6. A MetaMask notification will pop up asking you to confirm the transaction. Click "Confirm". The gas fee will be deducted from your wallet, and the NFT will start the minting process.

  7. Wait for the confirmation message that your NFT has been successfully minted. This might take a few minutes depending on the network congestion.

  8. Congratulations! Your NFT is now live on Zora and can be viewed, bid on, or bought by others, so cast to your Warpcast and @ tag Ciniz to let him know you've done the steps successfully. Remember to stay respectful to other artists' work and only mint content that you own or have the rights to. Happy minting!

There are SCAMS everywhere so protect your wallet and what to do after got scammed!

With 293k+ users already onboard and growing faster than before, even Warpcast also can't prevent getting the wrong people onboard. I personally got scammed on WCU and found out too late of what to do, therefore I am sharing my experience so that you can avoid being scammed like I did.

Scammer!

The account will ask you to like or do something simple to be entitled for their coin and when you click on the frame, it will bring you to Zora to mint the NFT for only little money with the promise of airdropping the coins but when I checked on the date for the airdrop, the coins never arrived in my wallet and the NFT suddenly disappeared from my wallet after a few days. So please be careful and if you come across any suspicious accounts like this scammer, report them in the /police channel so that more people like Wake or other Top Casters know. Use the tools/frames I mentioned in the useful resources section to do your own due diligence.

Final Words

Navigating the Warpcast Universe can seem daunting, but fear not, you're not alone in this. As a new user, it's crucial to understand some Dos and Don'ts that will guide your journey in this revolutionary platform. Always remember to secure your wallet ID and engage actively within the community. Conduct thorough research before clicking anything that might cause you to part with your hard earned money and ensure you diversify your investments to mitigate risks of rugpulls etc.(which I will share in another article). Never share your wallet ID with anyone and steer clear from scams promising outlandish returns.

To enhance your experience, utilize Warpcast's features like setting notifications(the 🔔 icon on the top right) so that you don't be the last to know about the latest free NFT minting, free airdrops etc. by those who got allowance to tip,those all mighty frames and actively participating in discussions without touching on sensitive topics such as hate speech etc. to avoid being disqualified.

Remember, every adventure begins with a single step, and in the Warpcast Universe, we are still early. So strap in, and prepare yourself for a fun-filled journey of discovery, learning and perhaps, even fortune!
