From GameFi to FitFi (Yes, FitFi Is a Real Thing)
Hello Bubble Riders!
Today is a Mini-Series to give you all a sense of the many updates we have in the works. I’m thinking of adding a new set of evaluations to our offerings — starting at the DIY-er level.
Have a look at this post on Quora. It uses something new: sentiment analytics to identify tiny crypto projects that have the potential to do 3x to 5x over the next 60 days.
Sentiment Analytics for Making Money in GameFi and FitFi
I want to know from you all: is this sort of analysis worth it for you?
I can bring this set of analytics to AOTB at a cost. So, before I pay, I want to know if you all would like sentiment based analytics.
Here is the link to the Google Form so that we can get your responses:
It might bump up the DIY-er price to $20 a month, so that’s part of the form for you all to fill out. Crypto Riders and Bubble Riders will get it included at the same price.
Next up: FitFi is here
What is it?
Well, just as GameFi = Gaming + Decentralized Finance (hence is Web3 Gaming), so FitFi = Fitness Services + Decentralized Finance (so, Web3 for fitness).
Yea, the terms aren’t super precise. The idea in both cases is that the traditional industry is being updated using crypto tech (usually coins + NFTs + decentralized finance farming) to pay people to do the things they would often do on their own.
Making Money in GameFi and FitFi: Statistics
Now, I’m not saying that STEPN, the current leader in FitFi is actually a good investment. Here is it’s chart of the last 30 days.
Yea, from $.15 to $3 in less than a month. Of course, $ICHI did even better, only to lose 97% of its value in a colossal run on one of it’s treasury pools. I’m actually adding both as part of our watchlist for Crypto Riders and up.
The Aurelius DAO Pivot
Remember this project?
We’re going to be pivoting.
The basic problem with the original conception was that it stood in a legal grey area. It worked, but only because the SEC hasn’t yet deemed most cryptos securities. But they might. And the SEC can act retroactively to enforce its rulings.
Since my day job is now to manage 1.2 Capital (our crypto hedge fund), I am not comfortable taking on that kind of legal risk. My living depends on operating in the securities space.
After lots of discussion with legal, we found a way around it. That way will involve turning the Aurelius DAO into a GameFi DAO.
We’ve already had lots of discussion on the Discord about this, but to be clear, there will be a role for “passive” participants. Right now there will be 5 levels of membership.
Levels of Membership for Making Money in GameFi and FitFi
- Consul – The CEO
- Praetor – The Rest of the C-Suite
- Senectus – Those who participate by providing NFTs for returns
- Legio – These are the legionnaires (the accomplished players)
- Auxilius – These are free members earning their way into the ranks of players
The Legio is further sub-divided into three ranks for members. As you move up through the ranks, you’ll get better earnings.
The top two levels are administrative. The amount of money going to that level is capped. It scales up to reach a continuous threshold, building an “endowment,” and then never has to take anything more from the DAO. It will be self-sustaining. This maximizes returning all resources back to the DAO (rather than the VC cash grab you see going on with other type DAOs).
If you buy into the DAO (and you can just play your way in, if that’s your preference), after you hit a participation threshold (either by playing or supplying NFTs) you’ll get all your money back.
This approach substantially limits your downsides. It also most directly aligns incentives with the DAO.
I’ll do an explainer video with team members soon, but that’s where we are on it. If you were already in the AureliusDAO, we’ve still got your information. If not and you’d like to learn about new updates, click this form.

We’ll be sending out timely news updates relevant to bubble trading. They’ll come up in little snapshots of 100 words or less!. Sam and Dom will be rolling this out on Twitter, Medium, and there will be a section on AOTB too.
Finally, you’ll soon be able to log into theartofthebubble.com for your subscription benefits, rather than relying on Discord (which can just get distracting).
This week I wrote a number of pieces that are related to this post, so you might want to have a look if you’ve missed them.
