Solana-Based Okay Bears NFTs Sign Licensing Agreement With IMG

Okay Bears have quickly become the signature Solana NFT project. That’s back on display this week, as a new licensing deal has come to life with Okay Bears and entertainment behemoth IMG.

IMG’s Stature, And Okay Bears Potential 

IMG is one of the biggest names in IP, a global monster that deals in global product and branding licensing. The agency merged with arguably the biggest talent agency in the world, Endeavor (previously known as WME), in 2013. However, Endeavor has largely left IMG untouched and has held the role of parent company, allowing IMG to do what it does best.

IMG’s strength aside, the licensing deal makes an abundant amount of sense. Though Okay Bears are a very young project in an equally young market, it’s clear that profile pic NFTs like the 10,000 mint Okay Bears are finding their way to public markets. Even if major brands and media isn’t utilizing them yet, the money reinvested in the crypto market alone will continue to bolster growth. A prime example of this came just last month, when we broke down our weekly ‘NFTs In A Nutshell‘ report and highlighted the Solana-based barrelDAO, who is crafting a summer shandy beer with a can that would feature prominent Solana-based NFT projects – Okay Bears, of course, included.

NFT Representation: What We’ve Seen So Far

Last year, NFT project ‘Jenkins the Valet’ signed with major agency (and competitor of aforementioned Endeavor) CAA. Another three-letter agency competitor, UTA, has gotten involved too, signing on Deadfellaz and working with the likes of Coinbase and creators of CryptoPunks, Larva Labs.

The structure for NFT representation is far from clear, but one thing that is clear is that major Hollywood agencies are showing their willingness to get involved. We’ll see how it shakes out when it comes to IP utilization, media and branding deals, and more.

Solana is working to secure it’s position as a powerhouse NFT player, with projects like Okay Bears leading the charge. | Source: SOL-USD on TradingView.com

Robert Kiyosaki Says End of Fake Money Is Here — Shares 3 Lessons to Help Investors Amid Market Crashes

After predicting the biggest crash in world history, Robert Kiyosaki, the famous author of the best-selling book Rich Dad Poor Dad, says the “end is here” for fake money. He reiterated three lessons that will help investors “do well in market crashes.”

Robert Kiyosaki on the End of Fake Money

The author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, shared some of his views and investment lessons in a couple of tweets this week. Rich Dad Poor Dad is a 1997 book co-authored by Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. It has been on the New York Times Best Seller List for over six years. More than 32 million copies of the book have been sold in over 51 languages across more than 109 countries.

Kiyosaki tweeted on Tuesday explaining why he thinks the end of “fake” money has arrived. The famous author wrote:

End is here. Called Jerry Williams, my trusted gold and silver dealer. He said: ‘I can’t get gold or silver coins. The mint will not sell me anymore.’ To me, this means the end of fake $ is here.

He proceeded to reiterate his silver recommendation. “As stated in earlier tweet silver going to $100 to $500. Get some. Protect yourself,” he wrote. His advice followed another statement he made recently that gold is expensive, calling silver the best investment value today.

Kiyosaki previously explained that when President Richard Nixon removed the U.S. dollar from the gold standard in 1971, “the U.S. dollar became fake money.” He clarified that “This is because rather than being tied to real money,” such as gold, “it was tied to the ‘full faith and credit’ of the United States.”

In a tweet on Thursday, the renowned author reminded investors of some lessons. “In Rich Dad Poor Dad, I stated Rich Dad’s 3 lessons,” he described, elaborating:

1: Your house is not an asset. 2: Savers are losers. 3: The rich do not work for $.

“The rich are entrepreneurs who do not need a job,” he added, noting that these people “create jobs, create [their] own assets, and do well in market crashes.” He then emphasized that “2022 is your time to get richer.”

Last week, Kiyosaki urged people to “invest in real money,” naming gold, silver, and bitcoin. He stressed that the Federal Reserve “raising interest rates will destroy the U.S. economy.”

Kiyosaki has repeatedly warned that the biggest crash in world history is coming. In April, he said all markets are crashing.

He recently urged his mailing list subscribers to buy cryptocurrency now, ahead of the biggest crash in world history. The famous author has stated for several months that he is waiting for the price of the cryptocurrency to bottom out before getting in. He recently said he was in a cash position ready to buy BTC, suggesting at one point that the price of the crypto could test $1,100.
