Shitposting generally refers to people posting content that is ironic, satirical, sarcastic or just a pure troll to elicit certain reactions, and this new NFT project aims to reward such behavior.
Notably, the project is supported by VaynerMedia, the marketing and media agency of NFT advocate and popular entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck.

Outcast Academy is also slated for its first NFT release later this month, featuring a collection of 5,000 NFT avatars portraying various high school archetypes such as nerds, jocks, and rebels.
The project states that at this stage it keeps the utility behind the NFTs “hush-hush”, but notes that it is building an “entertain-to-earn ecosystem”.
Muck Zuckerberg’s tokenized little league baseball card
A small baseball card featuring Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg will be up for auction on September 24 through an online collectibles marketplace.
The card features a photo of Zuckerberg, eight years old, wearing a baseball uniform with a bat in hand. These cards were generally created as a novelty for young baseball players, and Zuckerberg probably signed his card at the time and gave it to his camp counselor.
The card has since been minted as an NFT and will be auctioned through the online collectibles marketplace ComicConnect. The auction is not sanctioned by the man himself.
“There is nothing remotely like it. Mark Zuckerberg has influenced our culture more than any MLB and NBA player combined — and this card is truly one of a kind,” said ComicConnect co-owner Stephen Fishler in a Sept. 12 announcement.
Given that The Zuck has been divisive over the launch of the privacy-intrusive and personal data mining-intensive giant on Facebook, it remains to be seen how much demand this NFT may have.

However, it may take a while for the platform to get off the ground as striking NFT action is still lacking on Cardano.
Cardano doesn’t even make the list of the 16 best-selling NFT networks according to CryptoSlam, despite Theta in 16th place generating just $117 in secondary sales volume in the past 24 hours.
@AadaFinance announced their $25,000 Bug Bounty Program.
Your contribution to find bugs would ensure the safety of the user fund and the prosperity of the Cardano DeFi and the entire ecosystem.
