NFT Derivatives Suck Value From Main Collection?
Some members in Castle have been following a new NFT mint this week:
This derivative is inspired by the Remilio Babies NFT collection created around the start of 2023 by the famous Remilia Collective, known for their Miladies.
If we go on-chain, we can find some interesting wallets:
The Current biggest holder of this collection is the following address:
The guy minted 135 Tribes of Remilio on the 16th of January for over 4 ETH. To finance these purchases, he sold an important number of Remilio Babies (the main collection) that inspired Tribes.
In general, there is always a lot of complaints about NFT derivatives being diluting and are suppressive to the price of the main collection.
Above is a fine, on-chain example.
Ethersole building a $PEAS position
Ethersole is spotted building a new position in an altcoin. This time in $PEAS and since January 4th, he now holds $133k worth of the token.

After the rise of BRC-20 and other Bitcoin-focused DApps ape-able on Eth over the past few weeks, we are now seeing some projects come into the limelight with a bit more of a technical, value-added focus to bolster the offering of the Bitcoin ecosystem.
Unibot Rising from the Ashes
speculators are the bread and butter of this space
do not fade the team that brought the primitive - there is no better beta than the leader
strong influencer backing that has been quiet (rookie, tradinglord)
metrics picking up (users at/near ATH - share dune)
broken out of accumulation and looking for ATH and beyond
Redacted Finally in the Spotlight
apxETH yields at 16% (in pure ETH from validators)
only ½ of CVX votes currently being used
massively involved in Berachain baselayer design and incentives (think hidden hand built into the consensus layer)
DINERO still on the horizon

💹 Macro Outlook
Han will be back shortly.
📈 HTF Price Action Scenarios
Last week price dumped back into the consolidation range at which point I stopped watching it until it gave me clear directional clues. Price has since then liquidated its range low, consolidated a little bit, and went on a massive run, showing a clear bullish direction.
Expansion out of consolidation
Big sign of strength
After printing a clear higher high price started pulling back and re-accumulating. It makes therefore a lot of sense to start looking for longs on some lower timeframes expecting continuation.
Trade responsibly and I’ll see y’all next time!
