Our Scrapped NFT Project in Kuwait

Few months ago, a friend of mine called me to work on an NFT project in Kuwait. I got really interested, because it is something new to me and outside of my comfort zone. Even though I have been working on my manga and animation for few years, that was something a bit different. We looked at Bored Apes Yacht Club and when we saw the crazy amounts that each NFT sold for. We decided to jump on board and have fun with this project. We searched for an artist who can deliver our imagination to reality.

 

We found a very talented artist called Nadir112 on Fiverr and his work was really impressive. We told him we want to do something similar to Bored Apes Yacht Club, and that was very easy for him. First we asked to do a Dipodidae, which is a Jerboa. The second one was a Spiny-tailed lizards, which is a Thab. The Spiny-tailed lizards looked like an alien, so we didn’t like it much.

Then we asked him to do local funny characters that people relate to in the GCC. When we saw them, we realized that it will be too focused for the GCC, and we want to be more international.

Lastly we created something more international, but we still didn’t feel that it was really original. We discussed the idea further and we came to the conclusion to scrap the project and think of something completely different. I enjoy being part of different projects outside of my core experience. But this NFT project was really fun when we worked on. The only sad part is that we developed a full engine to create all the different images with setting the rarity of each object layer. We were ready to launch an NFT line with thousands of variations.

Sharingan Store | The Best Rare Figurines & Collectables Store in Kuwait

I rarely go to Rehab Complex these days and if I go, it is for Sharingan Store or Abdulmutalib to fix a device. It is the best store in Kuwait when it comes to buying rare figurines and collectables. Sharingan Store is founded by Jaber Bamsallam, a very respectful and honest businessman in Kuwait. He is one of the people who really stick to his words and do whatever it takes to deliver what he promises. I find a lot of amazing and rare figurines at Sharingan such as Prime 1, First4Figures, Tsume Art, and much more. If you think about selling a used or a brand new figurine, then Sharingan is the place to go. The commission per transaction is very reasonable, and things sells out really fast there. I had few figurines that broke when I was coming back from the US. I gave them to Jaber and he fixed them and sold them really fast. Just never throw any collectable, because you can sell them at really good prices. What I learned is that there is a buyer for everything including broken and damaged items. There are two ways of buying figurines, one is buying whatever is in stock and the other is pre-ordering. I hate preordering because sometimes I wait for few years until they deliver. Most fo the time there are production issues that slows the delivery time, so I stopped ordering unless it is something I really want. Now I buy whatever is in stock, because I get it few days after.

Follow Sharingan on Instagram and check their collectables out. This is the current rare figurines at Sharingan.

Where To Order Nintendo Switch OLED Model in Kuwait

This is the only console that I am reluctant to buy because I have a regular switch model. The reason I am reluctant is because I play mostly on TV, so the screen resolution won’t matter. It would have mattered a lot back when I was a kid when I didn’t have my own TV. I still believe that Nintendo Switch is one of the best consoles of all time.

To order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. It will be available at the following stores in Kuwait:-

Nintendo Switch OLED:-

Xcite (White, Neon)

Best Electronics (White, Neon)

Blink (White, Neon)

Game Store (White, Neon)

Geekay (White, Neon)

Level Up (White, Neon)

AlFuhod (White 1, White 2)

I will update the links to actual listings as soon as they are live, so stay posted.

I am monitoring all sites for restocking so follow me on Twitter and turn on post notification because I will tweet the moment they come back in stock.
