An Introduction to NFTs, A Beginners Guide to NFT’s, What is an NFT?
The Non-Fungible Token, or NFT, is a proof of ownership thing. To better understand what I mean, consider a piece of art like the Mona Lisa. Why is it better to own the original as opposed to a copy you can buy at Walmart? The value is in the fact we know it to be the original, unique, and actual Mona Lisa, as opposed to a copy. The Non-Fungible Token allows artists to securely own their piece of work and transfer ownership of that work securely in a tokenized format. This opens up many possible options for artists, musicians, and all sorts of creators. NFT’s allow creators to own their work and to keep track of their pieces as they are sold and traded on a blockchain.
Musicians and Full Digital Music Ownership through NFT’s
If you are a musician with your music up on different platforms, then you might know the frustration that is accompanied by trying to monetize your music on different platforms. Platforms such as Youtube, Spotify, and Soundcloud all take a cut from your profits. If you have asked yourself, “how can I profit from NFT’s” then this a huge way that you can make full profits from your original work. You can put your music on a blockchain and have your fans buy directly from you with no profits taken from other platforms. Your fans will know they have an original copy of your work, and you are able to see who your faithful fans are. Through an NFT creation, you are also able to add unlockable content for your faithful fans whether that unlockable content is a physical good, or digital.
Authors, Making an NFT Book, PDF and Book NFT’s
If you are an author, creating an NFT from your book is a great way to keep all your profits, as opposed to allowing publishers and other platforms to take a cut from your hard work. Through the creation of a Non-Fungible Token, you are able to sell your work to your fans and include unlockable content for anyone who buys from you. As a writer it is important to be able to understand who your fans are so that you are able to continue creating the content that they love. By creating your work as an NFT, you are able to track who bought your book NFT and as already noted, also provide your buyers with additional goodies for being a loyal fan. The beauty of it all, is that because NFT’s are stored on a blockchain, you know that the information regarding your book sales is accurate and the proof of ownership is written on an immutable ledger called a blockchain.
What Blockchain Should I Create an NFT On? NFT Platforms for your Art and Creations
As the world of NFT’s continues to develop, we will be seeing the digitization of many artifacts. Artists, musicians, writers, and a topic not mentioned in this blog, games, will all see an explosion of true ownership NFT’s that will allow gamers to truly own their in-game purchases. With this being said, the next thing to mention is the platforms that currently allow NFT creation. A quick place to create and sell your NFT would be OpenSea. OpenSea allows you to create an account for free and upload your creation and sell it on their marketplace. The only thing is you. must have an Ethereum wallet and there is a gas price for creating your NFT. The Tron blockchain recently released their NFT standard and have partnered with MixMarvel to help creators bring their work to life. Tron blockchain is a platform that aims to decentralize the internet and with zero-fee transactions will allow creating NFT’s to truly become mainstream and accessible to all.

We are all forced into existence against our will and ponder all the days of our life based on factors outside our control.
We assimilate into the immediate society which surrounds us and grow accustomed to the ideologies which most align with the voices within us, which grow based on different stimuli from our conception.
Once we are able to make our own choices, those choices are made based on conclusions that arise from the preconceived notions which have raised us.
There comes a point when we learn to project our consciousness above our very being and try to analyze the very being we call our own.
Not many do this with enough thought and meaning. Some may wonder about it but quickly resume to the automations we are enslaved to.
Be the one to examine everything about yourself and doubt all things you believe, in pursuit of the transcendent ideal that is obviously within us. The very ideals we recognize and fail to live up to.
Find the truth which exists outside of our flawed perceptions.
Though, while alive we can never have the absolute truth, we can find certain truths scattered throughout reality.
Life might be full of struggle, pain being the most obvious of truths, but through that most obvious of truths, we can seek out and find the meaning of why we are here, and embrace the good and beautiful and appreciate it fully, through knowledge of the pain we endure.

We consume ideas that are not our own.
Society’s conflicts connect us though.
Games are being played of which we don’t know.
We aim to explain what was read on a phone.
We claim to understand what we clearly don’t.
It is plain there are things we can never control.
A silent war targets the whole of all humanity,
A war, hidden by a culture’s nationality and ideology.
The problem is truly individual.
Individuals are targeted early on, consciously or unconsciously, and raised to believe the narratives directly around them, or at least, exposed to those narratives throughout their development to which they then act.
Some traditions are adopted unwittingly.
Those who most benefit from those traditions strive to perpetuate those stories.
Those with the means to do this fight with others with the means to do this.
Money, power, and manipulative guile are utilized to target specific audiences with content and ads that feed into chosen narratives.
These are often referred to as entertainment, for they enter and possess us. They leave us susceptible to the stories told when astutely crafted for the chosen audience.
Through demographic targeting, one can reach whoever they want. Groups of individuals can be easily aimed at and indoctrinated by clever use of appealing messaging by making references to already affirmed beliefs.
If you hook them while they’re young, the future becomes history.
Time is fleeing as I write these words.
Its been a while since I began my search.
To some knowledge is the enemy.
Some rather stay blind without a remedy.
Rather live and die the same memories.
Instead of looking for truth they only seek frivolities.
We all are born unique and individual, though most die a copy of the collective.

Things to consider when collecting sample data
If the sample data we collect is not collected appropriately, the data we gather may be completely useless.
An observational study allows us to measure certain characteristics, but we don’t modify the subjects which are being studied.
In an experiment we apply a treatment, then we observe its effects on a subject.

Types of Data
Parameter – this is always a numerical measurement which describes a characteristic of a population.
Statistic – this is always a numerical measurement which describes a characteristic of a sample.
Though these both may sound similar, a parameter and statistic are not the same at all except for the fact they are both numerical measurements. Since they sound similar it would prove wise to provide a couple of examples to make sure we understand the difference between the 2.

A survey concerning reading ebooks vs printed books
Surveys usually help us in improving or making adjustments to products or services. As well as to educate and attempt to explain questions. These may shape different aspects of our life. Surveys allow us to learn the insights and opinions of other people. One survey conducted by USA Today wanted to see if people prefer printed books over electronic ones. There were 281 respondents of which 35% preferred electronic books, while 65% preferred printed books. This survey may seem to suggest that most people rather read printed books than ebooks.
