Everybody will get rekt typically—and the Rarible group is not any exception. However this is what retains us going.
Let’s be sincere: We’ve all aped into some, uhm… questionable initiatives. Trying again, it’s apparent why issues didn’t work out. However who might’ve identified forward of time that the world didn’t want but a a thousandth set of ‘adjective + apes’ PFPs whose total roadmap is constructed across the phrase ‘metaverse’?
We’ve all gotten rekt earlier than. And as a lot as we’re NFT professionals at Rarible, even our group has a degen facet.
That’s why we love the rektguy NFTs. It’s enjoyable to learn their confessions on Twitter, it’s cc0, the artwork is nice—and the mission serves an necessary objective in the neighborhood (we’ll get into that shortly). So we labored with OSF—the mission’s co-founder—to ship a zero-fee group market for the rektguy group.
Should you’re so degen you wish to ape in and get your self a rektguy proper now, head over to rekt.market.
However should you’re simply discovering out about rektguy, you in all probability wish to know extra concerning the mission. As OSF informed us, he first drew the sketch for rektguy whereas being bored on his day job again in September 2021. “That doodle fashioned the inspiration of all my artwork, and originally of this 12 months we had the concept to create a pfp mission surrounding rekt tradition,” he explains, including:
“We launched in Might, unintentionally timing it with the market crash…could not have been extra rekt. However that is what the group is about; we’re all down unhealthy and we’re simply attempting to have some enjoyable. Rektguy shall be a badge of honour sooner or later; “I survived the 2022 bear market”.
We really feel like NFTs ought to be enjoyable, inclusive and create a supportive group—not make you are feeling alone and ashamed as a result of some folks on Twitter declare to have 10x their cash whereas your portfolio is down. In that sense, rektguy supplies an outlet for folks’s tales and makes them really feel much less alone.
And should you don’t really feel such as you’ve made sufficient degen trades to get a rektguy, allow us to encourage you with a number of nameless rekt confessions from the Rektguy group and the Rarible group:
“Transformed $100k to purchase $APE at 21 bucks to purchase Otherside land. I did not know how you can set my fuel to be sooner so I ended up not minting any. $APE dropped to $18 and I informed myself I might look forward to the following bounce. It by no means got here and I am nonetheless holding it now and have misplaced $80k”
Ought to we publish a how-to on rushing up transactions? Can’t have our frens down unhealthy like that.
“Minted an RLD, however offered it after for about $800 as a result of I wanted the money. It is now price $15k. Revenue is revenue, I whisper to myself nightly as I cry myself to sleep.”
Remorse stings, however good on you for being up on this commerce ser.
“I used to be an early collector of Apes with my pal and we have now a joint portfolio of NFTs. Within the final two months we have now misplaced about $35m in market worth. We inform ourselves we’re in it for the long term however we’re not gonna lie, we want we took extra income”.
Rarible 🤝 Rektguy Group. In it for the long term.
“I offered my total airdrop of $APE coin as a result of I wished to take some income. I informed myself that possibly it might go up one other 20% however there is not any method it will double. It then quadrupled within the subsequent 4 weeks.”
Quadrupled in 4 weeks? That’s one druple per week. Unreal scenes.
“Made roughly $150k on Saitama Inu in December. Did not promote any and it went to $5k. I offered it and put some cash into trash NFTs that every one went to 0. I spent one other $50k on extra NFTs that at the moment are price a complete of about $1k. I now have $40 in my checking account and have needed to get my outdated job again.”

We’re proud to have some degens on the group too, so we determined to take up the problem with our personal confessions. Right here’s one from the cellular group.
Determined to mint STEPN sneakers. Transferred sneaker to mates account. Until cooldown for mint price raised from 600$ to 1200$. After mint flooring worth dropped down from 1500$ to 400$. REKT however was very enjoyable.

Multiplying your cash all the time feels good. However not when any individual else multiplies it by zero.
Right here’s a brief, nearly Hemingway-esque story from advertising and marketing:
Nonetheless staking my $SOS airdrop.
For the final time, inventive group: Possibly ask the numbers folks earlier than making token choices subsequent time? We’ve been over this…
My first crypto funding which I felt actually good about on the time was Ripple (XRP)… at $3 every. I used to be imagining getting actually wealthy. x10 loss so far!
XRP military, let me see your (diamond) fingers! Trying again, 2018 was such a naive time.
Let’s get rekt collectively
