NFT & Crypto Twitter Insights | Moonbirds and Proof Collective Mint Has NFT Twitter Excited
The entire NFT industry is holding its collective breath in hopes of scoring a Moonbirds NFT allowlist raffle spot. In this article, we'll take a look at why Moonbirds are so hyped up according to top Twitter threads and highlight another scam running through the NFT and web3 space.
Abraham Litwin-Logan Explains the Moonbirds NFT Hype
Abraham Litwin-Logan recently wrote a Twitter thread about why he plans to mint the hyped Moonbirds NFT drop for nearly $9,000.
The initial Dutch auction price of 2.5 ETH has now been moved to a raffle-only sale with no Dutch auction component. Abraham covers three main points that have him excited about Moonbirds: the team behind the project, novel staking mechanics, and project Highrise.
The Moonbirds and Proof Collective team is one of the best in the web3 space. Betting on proven teams in this space is a great recipe for success.
Holders of Moonbirds will be able to lock up their NFT in a nest without having the NFT leave their wallet. Owners will be able to receive rewards that become more attractive the longer they have it nested.
Proof Collective is also building another project, codename Project High Rise. This project should continue to draw attention to Moonbirds and the Proof ecosystem. Moonbirds holders get first access to this new project.

Foxthepunk Sells CryptoPunk for Proof Collective Pass NFT
Proof Collective and Moonbirds are buzzing in anticipation of its NFT drop on Apr. 16. Foxthepunk sold a Cryptopunk to buy a Proof Collective pass and explains why in his newest Twitter thread.
Foxthepunk lists a few reasons for his sale and why he thinks Proof Collective is so interesting: momentum, adaptability, scarcity, egalitarian, Moonbirds, and Alpha.
- Momentum: Proof Collective has seen a rapid rise in floor price. It is the elite NFT club, and Foxthepunk is betting the club's entrance price has not peaked this early.
- Adaptability: The current meta in NFTs is PFPs (profile picture ) and utility, where Proof Collective is set up to excel. If this meta changes, Foxthepunk is betting the team can adapt.
- Scarcity: There are only 1,000 Proof Collective passes. This means a smaller community that allows for easier networking with some very successful individuals.
- Egalitarian: There are no NFT rarities or "floor" Proof Collective passes. All passes are equal.
- Moonbirds: Proof Collective holders get two Moonbirds NFT mints. This is an attractive benefit with all the hype built around this drop -- guaranteed entrance into the Moonbirds project.
- Alpha: Tons of projects offer “Alpha,” but Proof Collective is different. Members get early access to a Kevin Rose podcast that allows them to learn about projects that will be advertised to large audiences.

Bad Actors Find New Ways
In his newest Twitter thread, quit.pcc.eth (@0xquit on Twitter) breaks down a scam that cost an unlucky person Bored Ape Yacht Club and Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs.
There are many different scams in the web3 space, and it is important to always remember that if something is too good to be true, it most likely is. If you ever have even the slightest doubt avoid the situation.
KiwiSwap places a green check mark on an NFT that is a part of its verified collections. This is in an effort to ensure every party knows they are receiving a verified NFT. The scammer took this verified checkmark and used it to his advantage.
In this scam, the scammer creates a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection that shows a “verified” image check mark on the image itself. This creates an image that to the receiver looks to be a true BAYC NFT, but it is a copycat picture with the green check mark placed on it to fool the receiver into thinking it is actually verified.
If you are ever engaging in a trade, make sure to keep your guard up. Also, if you are not 100 percent familiar with these trading sites, either ask someone you trust for help, or make sure to stick to the trusted exchanges.
Today, bored ape holder "s27" lost their bubble gum ape and matching mutants ($567k at current floors) in an instant. This is a thread on how it happened, and how to prevent something similar from happening to you. 1/🧵— quit.pcc.eth (@0xQuit) April 5, 2022
