Hey there 👋,
In this week’s Alts by Flippa newsletter I discuss:
- 3 AI engines and 2 NLP algorithms vs Google
- 8-figure domain sale confirmed
- Centurica data showing dramatic drop off in sold listings in 2022
- Moonbirds removing IP from their NFT holders
Every heading is a discussion channel in the Alts by Flippa discord community – come join over 1700 of us.
I told Justin that I’m trying again on a fresh domain, having done an XML import of the content, and he replied saying he’s now completely changed the AI.
Like other companies, over the last year he built a GPT-3 driven SEO platform, but has now moved to using 3 AI engines and 2 NLP algorithms to compose. The software looks at what’s already ranking to build the knowledge to compile the post and then his team edits and optimizes everything. You can check out what this new content looks like as the software has written their entire new Content Marketing Playbook silo!
But Justin still does not think that AI content on its own is ready for prime-time which is why he’s not yet releasing the platform to the public. Instead, he’s now switching it up and looking to work with website investors to develop the content strategy, and deploy his team:
I am personally looking to work with a small number of website owners as head of SEO/Content. I will be creating an entire SEO/Content strategy, fix any existing issues with page speed, lack of optimization with current content (update existing, merge, purge, etc as needed) and of course publish a bunch of optimized blog content (20 posts/mo!) to start scaling traffic.
You can get in touch with Justin here.
I’ll report back in 6 months on how the AI content on my fresh domain is doing!
This Week’s Flippa Featured Domains
There’s a dramatic drop off in the number and % of sold listings from 2021 to this year:
It’s interesting as at Flippa, we’ve seen the opposite, selling through more GMV this year than at any other time.
Wow what a week!
There was a big backlash on Twitter, with one holder saying they had lost out on a six figure licensing deal:
As a result of this decision, someone immediately ripped the collection and launched Moonbirds2 on Opensea, before being shut down, rebranded as Boonmirds (!) and being reinstated. I bought one for $60 for my PFP on twitter (a lot cheaper than the $40K for a Moonbird pre CC0 announcement, now sub $25K).
There’s been a lot of snarky tweets:
In a space where founders / NFT collection owners can make drastic decisions that drastically affect your asset value, it makes sense that there has been a flight to safety in static projects such as Crypto Punks (what I’d describe as the Bitcoin of NFTs) whose price floor has gone up over 40% over the last 30 days to now $125K USD (73ETH):
