Alex, or Notfgod on Twitter, is the founder of DSDAO. Besides that, he’s also a DAO manager in Sol Council.
Alex made a name for himself as a botter and alpha caller for several DAOs before starting his own organization.
💼 What were you doing before Web3?
I was a streamer on Twitch for several months mainly playing Valorant and also doing some small-time forex trading.
🤔 How did you get into Web3?
One day I was casually scrolling on Twitter and somehow I saw a tweet about certain NFT projects giving away WL and I got hooked by the art, If I’m not wrong it was HAPE PRIME by HAPEBEAST on ETH chain.
🚀 What was your first crypto or NFT project?
My first crypto investment was Bitcoin Cash way back in 2018/2019 and my first NFT project that I bought on SOL was Dope Apes.
🧠 How would you explain what you do to someone outside of Web3?
Web1 is read-only, Web2 is read-write, Web3 is read-write-own. That’s what I always mention to my friends that ask me what Web3 is about etc.
💡 Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
When I started SOL NFTs I always have been following and reading up tweets by SOL Big Brain and Solana Sensei. I even DM’d them and ask if they are able to take me in as student and guide me but yeah…. I got rejected, twice. KEKW
🥳 What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
Probably when it was the Casino/Coinflip projects meta and every project was overallocated for WL, we were running the bot daily for different projects on LMNFT. We minted over 1k+ NFTs in a week plus or so, netting big profits together as a DAO.
📈 What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
None atm but I’m still keeping tabs on SOL.
🤝 What advice would you give someone starting out in web3?
Read a lot and watch a lot of videos on Cryptos/NFTs. Secure your profits ASAP, and build up your liquidity so you have more space to make some mistakes or even ape into projects that you have huge conviction on. Conviction comes from mistakes and learning, so take your time. Don’t rush it 👍🏻
🎤 If you could do a TEDtalk on any topic, what would it be?
The importance of helping others.
🚨 What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted island?
Phone with internet access or laptop with internet access.
