Solana-based NFT project Outcast Academy has begun distributing its newly launched $DRAMA tokens, rewarding the most popular posts on Twitter as nominated by the community.
Outcast Academy describes itself as an “entertainment NFT experiment” and launched $DRAMA tokens as part of its “shitpost-to-earn” ecosystem, allowing community members to tag its associated @DramaReward bot account to nominate their favorite tweets from Twitter shitposts.
The nominated Twitter years could receive free air-tossed $DRAMA tokens.
However, the specific details of the rewards, how many nominations are required, and other details have not yet been outlined.

Shitposting generally refers to people who post content that is ironic, satirical, sarcastic or just pure trolling to invoke certain reactions, and this new NFT project aims to reward such behavior.
The project notably has support from VaynerMedia, the marketing and media agency belonging to NFT proponent and popular entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck.

Outcast Academy is also set for its first NFT release later this month, with a collection of 5,000 NFT avatars that feature various high school archetypes like nerds, jocks, and rebels.
The project states that it is keeping the utility behind the NFTs “quiet” at this stage, but notes that it is building a “fun-win ecosystem”.
Muck Zuckerberg’s tokenized minor league baseball card
A minor league baseball card featuring Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg is up for auction on September 24 via an online collectibles marketplace.
The card features a photo of Zuckerberg aged eight, wearing a baseball uniform with a bat in hand. These cards are generally made as novelty items for young baseball players, and Zuckerberg must have signed his card and given it to his camp counselor at the time.
The card was later minted as an NFT and is being auctioned through the online collectibles marketplace ComicConnect. The auction is not sanctioned by the man himself.
“There’s nothing like it. Mark Zuckerberg has influenced our culture more than every MLB and NBA player combined — and this card is truly unique,” noted ComicConnect co-owner Stephen Fishler in a September 12 announcement.
Given that The Zuck is a divisive figure for launching the privacy-intrusive and personal data-mining-intensive giant on Facebook, it remains to be seen how much demand this NFT can have.
NFT lending on Cardano
Aada Finance, the first protocol set up to offer NFT lending and borrowing services on the Cardano blockchain, is offering a $25,000 bug bounty competition as part of its main launch on September 13.
Those who can spot critical weak contract vulnerabilities, and provide suggestions on how to fix them, will receive $25,000 of the protocol’s native AADA tokens.
Aada Finance says it will offer users “peer-to-peer lending and borrowing in an order book style while fully monitoring their loan applications and loans.”

The platform may take time to get off the ground though, as notable NFT action is still missing from Cardano.
Cardano doesn’t even make the list of the top 16 selling NFT networks according to CryptoSlam, despite 16th placed Theta, which generated only $117 of secondary sales volume over the past 24 hours.
@AadaFinance announced their $25,000 Bug Bounty Program.
Your contribution to find bugs would ensure the security for the users’ fund and for the prosperity of the Cardano DeFi as well as the entire ecosystem.
