Gildable: New Digital Trading Card Platform Turns Instagram Posts into Digital Collectables with Perks and Utilities

Published

on

Gildable Inc. is launching its revolutionary blockchain-powered platform that enables anyone with an Instagram account to create and sell NFT-backed trading cards that come with associated perks and utilities.

Gildable has already garnered the attention of artists and stars such as The Bachelor’s Peter Weber, iconic actress Mariel Hemingway, Ohio State Basketball alum and TikTok star Jimmy Sotos, hyper-realism artist Mike Dargas, and award-winning actor Jeremy Sumpter.

Gildable has also partnered with the American Red Cross to create philanthropic Gildable packs, which feature Robin Thicke, Dylan McDermott, Jane Seymour, Chris Maloney, and others. In the coming months, Gildable will collaborate with A-list athletes, celebrities, influencers, and brands, while also working with Ukrainian stars to support relief efforts in Ukraine.

To create Gildable packs, creators first choose seven Instagram posts that they want to turn into NFT-backed cards. Then they choose the price of each card pack, the number of card packs to mint, and what perks and utilities to tie to rare cards. Collectors then purchase the packs directly from their creators. Alternatively, collectors can purchase individual cards from other collectors on the Gildable Card Marketplace.

Unlike other Web3 platforms, Gildable does not require a cryptocurrency wallet or any blockchain knowledge. Purchases are made using debit or credit cards, and payouts are made to user bank accounts.

“Gildable cards seamlessly bridge the worlds of social capital and financial capital,”says Brody West, Gildable CTO. “Card creators can easily monetize their social capital, and card collectors can have a stake in the success of their favorite people. Furthermore, the directness of the card creation and collection processes facilitates genuine creator-collector connections through perks, utilities, and the cards themselves.” He continues, “Making Gildable packs is free. We encourage everyone to make their own.”

CEO Chris Breed is a veteran entrepreneur who has been called “The King of Hollywood” by the Los Angeles Times. Others on the business team have run marketing campaigns for Marvel, Disney, Coca-Cola, and more.

CTO Brody West is an MIT alumnus and former principal at cryptocurrency venture capital firm Pantera Capital. The rest of the technical team is largely MIT alumni.

Gildable’s launch fortuitously occurs days after Instagram announced that it will be rolling out a feature to display NFTs on the platform. This will provide a great way for collectors to showcase their Gildable cards to their Instagram audiences.

What To Look For When Renting A Dumpster For Your Waste Removal

Published

on

Renting a dumpster is a convenient way for removing a large quantity of junk all at once, such as construction debris in a remodeling project or old furniture when you are moving out. This reduces pollution and improves sustainability.

 

Whenever you rent a dumpster, you need to avoid things like accidents, troubles with delivery or pick-up, stumbling blocks and unintended costs,  when getting the bin dropped in your home. 

 

Understanding the factors to take into consideration when renting a dumpster will help your home improvement project run more smoothly, and in an environmentally friendly way

 

Dumpster Sizes

 

One important consideration when renting a dumpster is the amount of junk you will be dealing with. This also implies that you should select the appropriate dumpster size. If you are unsure about the size of a dumpster you require, you can always consult with the dumpster rental company for guidance.

 

Disposal Methods 

 

It may also be beneficial to spend some time evaluating a company’s garbage disposal methods. Asking questions such as, “How does the agency handle waste management?” will help you learn more about the company. 

 

Or “Do you have a policy for recycling?” Ideally,  the bin rental firm of your choice will use environmentally responsible garbage disposal procedures.

 

Dumpster Rental Experience

 

It is important to note that garbage collection procedures are governed by rules and regulations established by municipal governments. For example, some communities have designated dumpster placement areas where residents can drop off their trash. 

 

If you are not familiar with the rules and laws governing dumpster placement in your area, you may find yourself in some trouble at some point of your junk disposal project. 

 

As a result, when selecting the dumpster rental company, be sure that the firm you choose is familiar with the rules and regulations in your area. It would be preferable if it had been in this sector for a significant amount of time.

Additional Waste Management Services

 

A good rental firm should be able to meet all of your waste management and recycling requirements.  In other words, their services shouldn’t be limited only to dumpster rentals. 

 

If you require a dumpster for a building project, it will be preferable to work with a business that has all the necessary equipment and skills to complete the task.

 

Check Online Reviews

 

Check reviews of dumpster rental companies while you’re researching to hire a dumpster. Even though a dumpster rental process is rather basic, you’ll want to be certain that you don’t get stuck with any unexpected or hidden fees. 

 

You’ll also need to make sure that the dumpster rental company has outstanding communication and that pickups and deliveries are done in time.

 

Consider Weight Limits

 

Dumpsters have weight limits. When it comes to waste disposal, a 10-cubic-yard dumpster can normally carry 1 or 2 tons of debris, while a 40-cubic-yard dumpster may take up to 6 tons of debris.

 

Heavy objects such as broken concrete blocks and bricks may necessitate the use of a special heavy-duty dumpster designed specifically for this purpose. 

 

Additionally, the weight of the waste will result in disposal fees, which are determined by your municipality. You should expect to spend between $20 and $100 for every ton of rubbish.

Find Out The Rental Period

 

When renting a dumpster, you should expect to pay the same fee regardless of whether you want it for a day or for a week. The choice to rent for a month or more may be available after one week, depending on the contract. 

 

Alternatively, corporations may charge $10 per day after the first week has gone, in addition to the amount for the first week itself.

 

The final price is determined by the dumpster company. The cost of renting a dumpster might vary significantly depending on how long you need it. Make sure to carefully examine the rental periods and associated prices before deciding on the dumpster rental which is most appropriate for your needs.

Get Permits

 

If you plan on renting a dumpster, you may need a permit. All that matters is the location of the dumpster when it is in use. Permits aren’t usually needed if you can keep the bin in your driveway or on your own land. However, if you must place the trash in a public area, such as a street or park, you may require an official permission.

Check your city’s website or give them a call to learn more about the requirements for getting a dumpster permit. Complete and submit all proper documents.

 

Permit requests can take up to two weeks to complete at various city offices, so it’s wise to research the permitting process in advance. Waiting that long to clean up a mountain of trash is not something you want to do.
