💎 hidden gems: The Mandela Effect

TH3 B00TL3GER by STR4NGETHING, Read Write Own by Chris Dixon, Solana Phone 2 and more...

Hello friends 👋,

Before getting started, I just wanted to welcome the +2,000 members who joined over the past week.

Today’s email is a hidden gems edition, where I curate art, products, and content in the blockchain and art space. It usually goes on Sundays, but this past week has been heated with the release of the Academy by Blind Gallery — we’ll get back to the normal schedule next week.

Let's get into it...

💎 Gem of the day


In the rolling hills of Renaissance Italy, a cheeky and daring B00TL3GER had found a unique location to sell his fake N1k3 gear.

He had set up shop on a secluded hillside, where he had ingeniously repurposed an old C0C4-C0L4 vending machine, transforming it into a vending machine that alowed the purchasing of imitation footwear and rolled-up t-shirts.

STR4NGETHING is a pioneering AI artist who produces art inspired by the Mandela Effect —a situation in which a large mass of people believe that an event occurred when it did not.

He has received international acclaim across multiple publications, including COMPLEX, VOGUE, and HYPEBEAST.

📕 Interesting Read

Read Write Own by Chris Dixon

This new book by entrepreneur and investor Chris Dixon details how blockchains will reshape the internet. In just a few weeks, it became a New York Times Bestseller.

I just ordered a copy and feel like I’m super late.

🔥 Product to Watch

Solana Phone 2

Solana Mobile had a rough start, selling just a few phones in their initial launch. It all changed a few months ago when an airdrop to phone holders ignited a massive sale spree. The original Solana Phone goes for around $3000 on eBay these days, and Solana just announced their second edition.

The sale is going down in phases, starting now at $450. Shipping is set for 2025.
