What Happened in OPJ This Week
Your Weekly Round-Up of All Things NFT + More
👋 GM, GM everyone!
We’re back with a quick Saturday update of some of the best Overpriced (maybe now moderately-priced?) JPEG content you might’ve missed this week.
For our OPJ PRO members: we’ve got another fun & informative AMA for you this week. This is your chance to ask Carly & team *anything*… NFTs, crypto, OPJ content it’s all fair game.
The next AMA will take place this WEDNESDAY at 12pm EST / 9am PST and we’ll be sharing a link here with y’all early next week to access the private Zoom.

First up this week…. is Carly’s interview with the OnChain Monkey team!
ICYMI, OCM made it’s first appearance on the OPJ NFT Top Ten index this month, in large part thanks to their work in the Bitcoins Ordinals space.
The project has been around for a bit but unlike a *lot* of projects from the 2021 explosion, they’ve been building pretty consistently and have developed a very strong community over that time.
We’re excited and grateful that today’s Overpriced newsletter is brought to you by Stickies!
At the heart of NFTs are - let's be honest - memes & identity. That's why we're excited to partner with Stickies, who bring your Bored Ape, Pudgy Penguin, Doodle, or other favorite JPEG to life as a GIF that can emote, speak, and truly become your digital alter ego.
Stickies animates your NFTs into over 350+ dynamic GIFs, blending magic, simplicity, and fun within a free mobile app. Our Stickies partnership lets our OPJ community bypass the usual waitlist and dive right into the action so your NFTs can be more than Overpriced JPEGs ;). Download the Stickies app here and start communicating as your PFP. With weekly content drops and surprise artist features, we believe Stickies is redefining NFT utility. Let's add a dash of playfulness to our NFT experience together.
In the newsletter…
Monday we had Jon Rogers’ follow up to the Blockbuster episode about the distribution dilemma that Hollywood faces right now, which the current strikes by both the Writer’s Guild & SAG / AFTRA exacerbate.
Then, Gavin Purcell wrote about the “Data of Disappointment” and how you can use blockchain long-term holder data (provided by our partners at Web3 Sense ofc) to track the specific moments where disappointment might’ve broken a community’s back.
He dives into the data to look at where the downfall for different projects originated. It’s *not* where we thought they would be.
Finally, on Friday’s pod…
Carly & Gavin got into a wide ranging discussion around the recent dare-we-say positive news in the crypto space which we hope will eventually find it’s way back to the NFT market.
They also got into a lively chat around Meta’s new Threads app whether or not it’s got staying power. Oh, and they touched on Fatzuki. 🤦♂️
That’s it for now! We’ve got another big week coming up and we hope to see as many of you as possible at our AMA!!
