The TGIDigest: Week of 10/24/2022

TGID

🌎 Doodles is here to color our worlds. It is here to inspire us all to reconnect with our inner-child. To remind us we can do anything with the power of our imagination.

Official News

🌈 Nothing this week but something is in the air!

Team Action + Speculation

👀 Brandon Rosenblatt

  • Word on the street is that the upcoming Doodles figurine will NOT have any pre-orders. This begs the question: will we be able to pick them up IRL at DoodlePutt? Or is it merely no online pre-orders so they will be shipped quickly? Or is the only way to buy one be IRL at Art Basel and will be shipped at a later date?

  • Another angle captured from Burnt Toast’s instagram story.

👀 Katelin Holloway + Julian Holguin

  • Will be speaking at Lisbon’s Web Summit about what’s next in the NFT space by exploring the pillars of success for Doodles.

  • When: November 1st -4th.

👀 Alexis Ohanian

  • Made an Instagram carousel post crediting 776 partner and Doodles Board of Directors member Katelin Holloway for leading and winning 776’s deal with Doodles.

👀 Julian Holguin

  • Did an interview on CNBC’s ‘Closing Bell’ to talk Doodles, Markets, and the next phase of NFTs.

  • One leg up Doodles had upon launch was their solid reputation in the space, Burnt Toast’s art that is universally loved, and the brand’s potential to scale.

  • He gives a shoutout to the founder’s marketing and business tactics that made the project stand out: closing discord early (controversial but trendsetting), creating a different license on IP compared to other projects before them, and the fact they began as a DAO where the community could power the roadmap.

  • In the last 4 or 5 months, projects who took these ideas as a serious long term business opportunity are the only ones managing to be sustainable right now. It’s all about endurance!

  • “With Doodles we have an opportunity to stay quiet, build, and really scale with purpose and intention.”

  • “This is a collectibles business, and we are trying to reinvigorate what on-chain digital collectibles look like and how a fan can take part of a brand from the minute it launches until we’re as big as a company as Pokemon, if that ever happens one day.”

👀 Alex Ohanian and Katelin Cruse

  • Interviewed on CNBC’s Crypto World.

  • The 4 important features of Doodles: Team, Community, Roadmap…and later on, the technology behind the artwork. (Trojan Horse)

  • What is it about Doodles team that stood apart: Noise is gone (bear market) and builders are building things that people will love. The team are exceptional story tellers, brand builders, and community builders.

  • Innovation rarely starts mainstream, then it grows, evolves, and expands to serve others. NFTs are in their infancy.

  • The Doodles team is incredibly thoughtful and inclusion is at the heart of what they are doing.
