THE BIGGEST FLOP IN NFT HISOTRY!

Today, we’ll look at something extremely interesting. A new NFT platform called Quartz, partnered with Ubisoft, has recently emerged into existence but things didn’t really go as well as they planned. They’ve been getting so much backlash ever since their launch so we’ll see what’s really going on here with new flop project.

The Flopped DIGITS

DIGITS NFT collection by Ubisoft

The newly launched NFT collection by Ubisoft is referred to as DIGITS. These are NFTs that you can use in-game. We’re not exactly sure about what’s so different about them but it could be the fact that these NFTs with in-game use cases can be resold.

Recently, a senior character artist at Apex Legends, tweeted about the new NFT platform and their NFT collection. After doing her research, she figured out that Quartz, partnered with Ubisoft, only sold 15 total NFTs of the DIGITS collection in total. This too was worth only $1700 in real money.

Taking this into account, it’s obvious that the new project was pretty much a flop. In contrast, a helmet available in the sale required 600 hours of playtime to be able to use it, which equals 25 whole days.

Although we can really see the project has initially flopped, you can’t really hate on a company for trying to innovate. So this one of the interesting news about NFTs that we’ve recently seen, which really is underwhelming when it comes to Ubisoft’s NFT collection.

CleanPhone – The Ultimate Parental Control System

Taking that out of the way, let’s take a moment to acknowledge how amazing our CleanPhone is. CleanPhone is an incredible phone that you can give your kids or family members, which lets you keep track of exactly what they’re doing with it.

Additionally, you can schedule the time for apps they use so they won’t be able to access a particular app past the schedules time limit or time period. CleanPhone also provides screentime reports, which will provide you the data of how your kids or family spends their time on the phone.

Melania Trump has a NEW NFT! Full Review!

Today, we’ll look at a really exciting piece of news that happened recently around the NFT world. We know the world has been going crazy lately with all the new cryptocurrencies and the capabilities they come with. And NFTs happen to be an innovate idea to boost the potential of crypto.

Melania Trump Getting Into The NFT Craze

Recently, Melania Trump started selling her own NFTs. Although this is not the first time a celebrity is stepping into the NFT world, we can definitely see this as a growing culture, which is a pretty promising hope for the future.

Melania's Vision NFT

The NFT that Mrs. Trump is selling is a digital watercolor painting of her eyes, which she titled “Melania’s Vision”. In addition to the digital painting, it also has a voice recording of her that says “My vision is, look forward with inspiration, strength, and courage.”

The NFT is up for sale on her official website, melaniatrump.com, and is currently listed for a price of 1 SOL ($198). A portion of the proceeds from the sales will help kids aging out of the foster care system.

Like Melania Trump, a lot of other celebrities have also joined the NFT craze way before Mrs. Trump did. Some of the big names include Tom Brady, Martha Stewart, and the K-pop band BTS.

Technology is kidnapping our children!

I’m the father of 6 great kids ranging in age from almost 16 to 2. As you can imagine, my wife and I struggle to keep a watchful eye on them. We often find ourselves in busy public places. Shopping with 6 kids is a challenge at best and frequently a total nightmare. Going out to eat with 6 kids can be an expensive adventure. Even getting everyone ready and making it to church on time is tough.

 

20160715_145129My youngest son, Dustin, is a firecracker just waiting to go off. He’s learned many things under the tutelage of his 4 older brothers. He loves climbing on things and jumping off. He’s quickly learned to stick up for himself. He loves running around and playing with anyone who will pay attention to him.

 

I was recently shopping with my wife and some of the kids, including Dustin. We were in the clothing section of the store, and Dustin figured out that it was lots of fun to hide inside the hanging displays of pants and shirts. He continued his game of hiding in the clothing, peeking out, and running to a different location for several minutes. (Yes, I’m one of those parents. I just let him do it. So irresponsible, right?)

 

Protect your Family Today!

 

At one point I had not seen him for a few minutes. I checked where he last was and found nothing. I walked quickly down the aisle trying to locate him, with no luck. At this point the thought came to mind that he could have been taken by some. My heart pounded and began to ache as that thought sunk in.

 

Fortunately, we were able to find him without too much more effort: he got distracted by toys and stopped hiding in the clothes. However, this experience has allowed me to reflect on the horror of having a child kidnapped. I can’t even imagine an experience like that of Elizabeth Smart.

 

As I’ve thought about kidnapping it occurred to me that maybe someone is trying to kidnap my kids. They aren’t trying to physically take my kids and keep them as slaves, however – sometimes it feels like technology is trying to take them from me. Especially my teenage children seem less connected with me, less loving to the family, less engaged in school, and less interested in spending time with the family when they’ve heavily used their gadgets.

 

Protect your Family Today!

 

Let me clarify. I love technology! I’m a geek at heart. I love computers, tablets, and phones. My “junk electronics” drawer (as my wife calls it) is excessive and growing. I think so much good can be done with technology, and I have discovered that one of my primary missions in life is to help people use technology in a healthy way. That being said, the prospect of my children being kidnapped by technology is horrifying.

  

If we aren’t careful technology can kidnap our kids in the following 3 ways:

  1. Screen Time – The amount of time kids spend online and on digital devices for many is growing out of control. When the parent is constantly nagging the child to stop using a device it sometimes drives a wedge between parent and child.
  2.  

  3. Pornography – This is a sensitive and complicated topic. Needless to say, we are all concerned about the type of content our children access online. Not only is pornography addictive and destructive it changes how children look at their parents, especially their mother.
  4.  

  5. Communication – Open communication is critical for maintaining healthy relationships. We’ve seen communication methods explode on the internet. Unfortunately, as children become comfortable communicating online they often become less comfortable communicating offline.

 

So, what can be done to prevent this type of kidnapping?! I would recommend we start, as a minimum, by doing the following:

  1. Talk to them – Make sure they understand your love and concern for them. Help them understand the dangers posed by excessive or inappropriate use of technology.
  2.  

  3. Set clear expectations – Don’t keep them guessing. Make it clear to them what your expectations are for them and why you have them.
  4.  

  5. Put reasonable boundaries in place – Once the expectations are clear it is important to set up some reasonable boundaries to help enforce the expectations.

 

How does Clean Router help?

Clean Router can be an excellent help to parents trying to prevent the problems outlined above.  It specifically does the following:

  • Screen Time – The Time Restrictions features gives parents control over the hours and days that devices can connect to the internet.
  •  

  • Pornography – Clean Router was engineered specifically to detect and block pornography.  The filtering build into Clean Router is sophisticated and robust.  It provides a layered approach which actually examines the content (and not just the URL like many other products).  It is fast and reliable.
  •  

  • Communication – Though Clean Router isn’t specifically a means of communicating it can be helpful in two ways; first, it is an easy way for parents to initiate a discussion about the dangers of the internet.  Second, the emailed reports can be an effective way for parents to see what their children are searching for and looking at.  This allows parents to proactively discuss various topics with their children.

 
 

Please don’t allow your children to get kidnapped! You wouldn’t allow a stranger to physically take your children away from you. Why would you allow technology to take them from you? The threat is real. Take action now!
