I am glad to announce that 25 Ethereum Name Service domains have been collected in the last 60 days of the daqhris.eth Crypto Growth Fund operations on public blockchains.

By following a sentiment of belief into the future utility of ENS names, I continued to acquire these NFTs by following a geographic/physical location theme. Most of all recently-acquired domain names are identical to European cities in Belgium and Luxembourg.

To make up my mind and decide what to purchase, I searched on Wikipedia the most populous municipalities in Belgium and the major towns in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Some valuable names were already registered. But, I managed to grab fairly good ones at nice prices.

Few of them are culturally-significant, like waasland or titeuf. Others are river names, like sambre or schelde. One reflects the brand name of my digital art gallery made of photography NFT artworks: awalkaday.

This month of May spurred me into an investment craze aimed at the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domain names. Besides my pseudonymous domain name, I had never acquired other NFTs with the cryptocurrency fund’s wallet address.

In my personal life, the Spring season landed with a promise of employment granted by a local IT company. Therefore, I’ve decided to purchase some pieces of real estate in order to establish my virtual foothold in this region. Obviously, not by buying some land property on Earth. But, by collecting three digital properties which are based on a decentralized blockchain.

Yeah, you could have guessed it by now. The inspiration came from my physical location. I have been living in Bastogne (Belgium) since mid-2020 after the suspension of lock-downs laws in the country.

Bastogne is a nice, quiet and small city that is located in the southeastern part of Belgium, nearby the border with another European country (Luxembourg). Arlon is our provincial capital city and a renowned cultural center of the Belgian Ardennes region. Wiltz is a canton’s main city located in the northwestern part of Luxembourg.

This crypto growth fund is a digital version of a growth fund dedicated to investments in cryptocurrencies and other assets on public blockchains.

It is an online investment portfolio that:

  • has operations uniquely in the cyberspace,
  • openly shares transactions records and holdings,
  • is independent from any centralized entity (e.g.: a regulatory body, a local authority or a government agency).

This fund owns and manages digital assets that are:

Did you ever get a wild idea about NFTs that it unsettles your stomach? Maybe, not yet.

Today, I’m announcing that all visual artworks which have been minted and listed on OpenSea as part of awalkaday.art NFT Collection will follow a new pricing pattern.

The new, uniform, price tag is 0.05 ETH.

Previously, some #awalkaday non-fungible tokens were listed at this price. 0.05 ETH used to be the unique pricing option for #awalkaday NFTs shot in 2017 and 2018. Afterwards, artworks that were captured in 2021 and 2022 would carry an individual price tag (between 0.07 ETH and 0.25 ETH).

Bitcoin Donations

In December 2021, I sent end-of-year donations in Bitcoin (hereafter denoted as mBTC) to open source projects and organizations that are essential in regular management tasks for daqhris.eth Crypto Growth Fund and WALK≡DAY Visual Arts Gallery.

The total value of all transactions equals to 1.38582 mBTC.
