Thoughts & threads.

๐Ÿ’กSchenk.eth

  • John shared a thread on why they believe Doodles has been struggling in the bear. He also talks about a concern that without proper handling Doodles 2 might outshine the OG collection, thus hurting value of OGs. John also shares 2 main solutions:

    • 1) OG Doodles need to get 'significant advantages' beyond IRL event access. i.e. future claims

    • 2) The team must make Doodles 2 easily visually distinguishable from OG Doodles.

NFT Now

  • Dropped an updated version of their article "The Ultimate Guide to Doodles NFTS: Everything You Need to Know."

Paunch

  • Winky had to sell his long time pfp that we all will call winky until the end of days. In true legendary fashion Paunch scooped it up and vaulted it to ensure it stays in a good home.

Happynote

  • Dropped a thread analyzing the question: Can Doodles be the next global entertainment phenomenon. Using the example of Pokemon he highlights the 3 essential ingredients for success:

    • 1) Unique IP

    • 2) Engaging/Innovative Product

    • 3) Accessibility

  • In short, Doodles is moving in the right direction but needs to time develop their products to face the test of time. One interesting onboarding experience he shares is through encouraging listeners of Doodles Record vol.1 to create a Doodles 2, ONBOARDOOOOR!
