Getting Into The NFT Space With Sean Kelly #MakingBank #S6E45

Making Bank

In this episode of the Making Bank podcast, we welcome Sean Kelly, the founder of the Chibi Dinos NFT project, which sold all 10000 of its PFPs in 18 minutes, generating around 2.4 million dollars in revenue. He is also the founder and CEO of Jersey Champs and the marketing agency NFT Gorillas which recently got acquired. Sean is currently working as the Vice President of Web3 Marketing at InfiniteWorld, a metaverse infrastructure company. Sean talks about how he entered the NFT and dives into NFTs and what makes them valuable. He talks about his journey in the NFT space and answers some of the questions you may have as a newcomer. Listen to Josh and Sean discuss NFTs: (2:22) Sean's Start As An Entrepreneur Sean's entrepreneurial career started when he was in college. He founded Jersey Champs, where he would go on to sell custom throwback jerseys. Jersey Champs was his entry into the e-commerce world, and through drop shipping, he was able to make his first six figures. When COVID came around, Sean's e-commerce business took a hit. However, at the time, he saw Gary V and the buzz around NBA top shots, and he exposed himself to the NFT creators, and within a few months, he was able to understand the NFT space. (5:47) What Is An NFT NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. However, Sean explains that he sees NFTs as a proof of ownership. Whether a video snippet or a static image, you can prove your ownership to everyone as long as it's documented on the blockchain. (10:43) NFTs And Utility The NFT space is continuing to evolve. What started out as static images and video snippets of cool art has now grown to a point where people ask what they get in return for buying an NFT. Sean talks about NFTs having a utility that allows them to reward their holders. For example, with his own NFT project, Chibi Dinos — there are in-person meetups, calls with NBA players, and they're also working on a game. So now, if an NFT project wants to be looked at as valuable, they need to think of creative ways to provide utility to their holders. (14:15) Minting NFTs Sean talks about why people buy NFTs — some people are flippers who buy NFTs looking to sell them and make a profit, while some buy into established projects for the community. Sean explains NFT minting, which means a person pays a fee to mint, so an NFT project launches, and that person gets a randomly assigned NFT. Doing this opens the possibility of getting assigned a really rare NFT that could go for a lot of money. Essentially, that person is taking a chance on the NFT launch, but they are also helping the project owners execute their plan for that project by supporting them. (17:43) Sean On Selling His Marketing Agency Sean had also founded a marketing agency known as NFT Gorilla that aimed to help and consult upcoming NFT Projects and Brands with their marketing. His marketing agency was recently acquired after just six months of its inception. InfiniteWorld was looking for someone to take over their Web3 marketing role and hired Sean as their VP of Web3 Marketing and Strategy. (19:19) Things To Know About Today's NFT Space Today the NFT space is evolving, and more people are hopping on the NFT wave. So Sean advised newcomers to be wary of the NFT projects they support. The most important thing to do is research the team behind the project. It's also essential to see if there are only flippers since they're in it to profit from their investments. Sean also mentions being cautious of celebrity NFTs, a lot of them are just cash grabs, so it's crucial to stay away from the hype because hype can and usually will die out. So be careful, do your research and look for projects that have established team members. You might be able to make some money but, more importantly, be exposed to a valuable community of people.

90: Sean Kelly | A Portrait Of Scott Morrison, Australia's 30th Prime Minister

Curious Worldview Podcast

🎙️: https://atlasgeographica.com/sean-kelly-scott-morrison/The following is a conversation with Sean Kelly, the author of The Game, A Portrait Of Scott Morrison. Scott Morrison is the recently defeated, 30th Prime Minister of Australia. He was described in Sean’s book as someone with a core ideology of deep confusion. All Australians have their own idea about who Scott Morrison is, but for those of you reading who are not Australian, I will just say Morrison was someone known as the spin doctor. He was the leader of the liberal party which is the centre-right party in Australia and his reputation was one largely of inauthenticity in desperation to be seen as just a normal, regular Australian. Sean’s book was really fascinating for more than just the portrait of Morrison that it paints, but also for reflections on various modern parts of Australia’s culture. It is bloody interesting. Sean Kelly is an Australian journalist and a regular contributor to The Monthly. He was also a political adviser to Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard.In This Podcast With Sean Kelly, You Can Expect To Hear About…Is Morrison A Bafoonish Machiavellian?How Politics Is Performative, Rather Than Authentic.Scott Morrison & Religion.Australia As The Lucky Country.Jump In On My Newsletter 📋 🔑 - https://atlasgeographica.com/subscribe📷 Instagram & Twitter 🐦 -----00:00 – Introduction.01:54 – A Bafoonish Machiavellian.12:10 – Political Leaders With No Core Beliefs.20:45 – ScoMo’s Curries, the Sharks & Inauthenticity.33:41 – Biggest Grub In Federal Parliament.37:47 – Morrison & Religious Faith.43:44 – What Does It Mean ‘Australia The Lucky Country’.53:56 – Has Scott Morrison Read Your Book?58:12 – Most Bullish Country + Conversation Between Any Two People Of History.1:00:56 – Afterthoughts & Ambition.----Episodes Of The Curious Worldview Podcast Mentioned & Related.Alexander Lee | The Life & Philosophy Of MachiavelliGeoff Raby | Australia & ChinaMichael Smith | Australia’s Last Foreign Correspondent In ChinaLinks To Sean KellySean Kelly TwitterThe Game: A Portrait Of Scott Morrison.-----Are you into Nassim Taleb, Skin In The Game, Antifragile, The Black Swan?

AWW22 Scott Morrison: Who the Bloody Hell is He? - Sean Kelly and Annika Smethurst

Adelaide Writers' Week

Chaired by Annabel Crabb Sean Kelly describes The Game, his illuminating and deliciously readable take on Prime Minister Scott Morrison, as something akin to literary fiction, a critique of the flat character Morrison has assiduously created for the cameras, as conveyed to us through the pages of the press. Annika Smethurst’s The Accidental Prime Minister rigorously fills in the gaps in Morrison’s story. Both books help us understand more about the politician and the man behind the selfies.

Sean Kelly, "Becoming Gaia: On the Threshold of Planetary Initiation" (Integral Imprint, 2020)

New Books in Environmental Studies

In this episode I had the pleasure of speaking with Sean Kelly, professor of Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), about his 2021 book Becoming Gaia: On the Threshold of Planetary Initiation (Integral Imprint, 2020). Along with his abiding interest in the work of Jung, Hegel, and Edgar Morin, Kelly’s current research areas include the evolution of consciousness, integral ecologies, and transpersonal and integral theory. In Becoming Gaia, he draws upon an impressive range of scholarship from such fields as Big History, comparative religion, transpersonal psychology, and integral philosophies. Regular listeners may find Kelly’s work a wonderful complement to some of the other authors and topics we’ve shared on this channel. I found the book—and our chat—fascinating.Kelly is not alone in suggesting we are living in end times. With climate chaos, an accelerating mass extinction, and signs of civilizational collapse, the Earth community is being drawn into a planetary near-death experience! These end times, however, also mark the threshold of new planetary identity in the making. Kelly reveals the features of this new identity and invites us to consciously participate in its making. Guided by the ideal of Gaia as "concrete universal," Kelly offers compelling insights on the nature of an emerging world spirituality that some describe as a second Axial Age—on the elements of a complex-integral ethics for the Planetary Era, and on the role of the death/rebirth archetype for understanding the charged field of contemporary climate activism.The book culminates with an inspiring meditation on the possibility, in these end times, of a third way beyond both hope and despair. In contrast to the restrictive anthropocentrism and technocentrism of mainstream discourse around the Anthropocene, Kelly speaks instead of the Gaianthropocene as our new geological epoch. It is an epoch where, even and especially as we face the fires of planetary initiation, we can awaken to our deeper nature as living members of Gaia, the living Earth in and through whom we have our being.
