NFTs for First Timers
Goo Goons were designed to be similar to other collectible card-type NFTs on the WAX Blockchain.
Invented as a tie-in to the currently available Five Dollar Crypto Primer and the upcoming Crypto-Drama novel YOLOsapiens, these NFTs are intended to teach people about blockchain technology without costing them anything, me much, or the environment everything.
Goo Goons are being given away free so people can get hands-on experience in the world of NFT trading and collecting. I’d love to send you one if you’d like to start your collection with a special edition Goo Goon. Just add it to your cart and check out — no payment or shipping information required. You’ll only need a Wax Wallet, which is super easy to get.
Since I’m manually processing these orders, it might take me a couple of days to get to your request. Just be cool, chill out, maybe spend some time with somebody you like. I’ll get to it while supplies last.
- Get WAX Wallet (TIP: If you use facebook to log in it's free, otherwise it's complicated...)
- Write down your wallet address from the upper right corner (ending in .wam)
- Add an NFT to your cart by typing in your wallet address on the product page. Check out like any shopping site.
- Be cool, I'll send it to you after work.
- Once you get your confirmation email, you can check https://wallet.wax.io/nfts any time to look at it, send it to other people, sell it, or whatever!

Generation I Progenitors
DEAD BOB thought it was his lucky day when he found a head in the wasteland. Alas, his digestive juices made short work of any good looks he hoped to acquire. He’s still trying to get a head.
TOON MEL has watched all the anime available in the wasteland. She subscribes to all the streaming services, which is currently 0. Her dream is to achieve Power Level 9000.
EVIL B makes most of her money scalping the last remaining Playstation 5s. She’s been in the desert so long that she’s lost most of her moisture, but that doesn’t bother B.
SEA SAM loves to dive for treasure. He’s a bit of a showboat.
Why WAX Blockchain? Why not Ethereum?
Ethereum is currently not very beginner friendly. Every transaction requires a gas fee that is often almost $200. That should eventually change, but for now I recommend trying something with lower stakes.
I chose The Worldwide Asset eXchange™ (WAX) because:
- New users can get a wallet in a couple clicks with no credit card or cost
- I can send users an NFT with no additional cost
- WAX is used by many trusted brands including Atari, Capcom, Funko, AMC, and… Hasbro. The same Hasbro that owns Wizards of the Coast, one of the most successful collectible manufacturers of all time.
One of the biggest reasons though, is that I think Proof of Work blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum need to get their power consumption under control. WAX is a certified carbon neutral blockchain. This is a direct quote from their website “WAX is a carbon neutral blockchain that runs on a Proof of Stake system. Meaning, we don’t need supercomputers to wage an energy-sucking battle to complete a single transaction. It’s a lean, green NFT minting machine.” Read more here if you want to see why I like it.
