Alpha Schedule #16 - Kanye West's Yeezus Jumps Into NFTs
By AMERICANxRADASS • Issue #16 • View online
Hi Fellaz,
It’s the first time in a long time that I didn’t send out the newsletter on a Friday. Oops!
The reason behind this is that I’m currently discovering Amsterdam and attending the SNEAKERNESS event.
As always: I’ve listed the most interesting articles in this email, and I’ve been 100% focused on updating the NFT NYC party schedule. My flights are booked, and I can’t wait to see you there!
In the meantime: Please share the newsletter with your friends, and make sure to enjoy your weekend!!

Kanye West‘s Yeezus brand has filed for 17 trademark applications indicating a possible move into the NFT space.
The applications, dated May 27, come months after West criticized non-fungible tokens in a now-deleted Instagram post in February.
The applications, accessible through the US Patent and Trademark Office, mention “blockchain-based non-fungible collectibles, assets, currencies and tokens” and “online retail store services featuring downloadable movies, videos, television, music, entertainment, digital art.”

The first insider trading case involving NFTs has led to a moment of reckoning in the space. Here's @Loopifyyy summing up the general sentiment among NFT traders and creators

The US Justice Department charged Nathaniel Chastain, a former product manager at OpenSea, with wire fraud and money laundering.
He was accused of secretly buying 45 NFTs based on confidential information about what NFT projects would be featured on the platform to make a considerable profit. The official release stated this case was the first-ever digital asset insider trading scheme.
COINBASE IS RETRACTING JOB OFFERS
Adam Kopec ツ
Welp, yesterday I was shocked to found out that @coinbase rescinded my IC7 Product Design accepted job offer after I already quit my job. Wild.

Oh well. Who’s building cool stuff in web3 / who should I meet with instead?

Thanks to several tweets, we learned that Coinbase un-hired most of their new recruits and is suspending further job offers for the foreseeable future to navigate the bear market conditions better and emerge stronger.
The company informed the cancellation by sending an e-mail to the new hires, signed by Coinbase’s Chief People Officer, L.J. brock. The e-mail stated that the company changed its hiring plans due to rapidly changing market conditions and that the recipient will no longer be starting their new position at Coinbase.
SOLANA SUFFERS
The Solana network is not having a good year, having suffered full or partial outages at least seven separate times over the past 12 months.
A bug has knocked the Solana blockchain offline again as block production halted at 16:55 UTC on Wednesday. This latest outage lasted around four and a half hours as validator operators managed to restart the mainnet at around 21:00 UTC, according to the incident report.

🔮 LOOKING FORWARD
We normally highlight upcoming mints, but honestly? I haven’t seen a project I wanted to highlight for this week … so let’s look ahead to the next few weeks.
It’s no financial advice, but you might want to start doing your research and grinding for these allowlists before it’s too late.
📖 LEARN HOW TO DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH
This week, I’ve stumbled upon two Twitter threads that I 100% agreed upon, and couldn’t have worded any better.

On Friday, we challenged our 0xcareers community to post their best WEB3 memes. Some of them got me actually laughing out loud - enjoy!
🤓 DISCLAIMER: NFA & DYOR
This newsletter is a curated overview of the most interesting things I’ve read the past week, the projects I’ve researched, and the NFTs I’ll be trying to buy.
This means I’m - per definition - biased, so don’t consider this as financial advice and keep doing your own research if you see something you like.
