"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn
Imagine how your life would change forever if you met the right person - that one mentor you could shadow to train you in everything they knew on making money and living the good life?
Tai Lopez's life transformed forever, after being born to a single mom in Long Beach, California with a dad in Terminal Island prison, when at age 19 he found 5 millionaire mentors who showed him the principles that rich people teach their children that he never learned growing up.
Welcome to the FIRST NFT-BASED MENTOR SOCIAL CLUB.
The "OG (original garage) Social Club" NFT collection by Tai Lopez consists of Silver "Mentorship" cards (Tier 1), Gold "Mastermind" cards (Tier 2), and Black "Inner Circle" cards (Tier 3).
The vision behind this project is to create a members only club where only NFT holders members get access to millionaire mentors and entrepreneurs through a collection of masterminds, hotels, nightclubs, restaurants, popup events, physical and digital seminars, training courses, in person mentorships, conferences, fireside chats, and so much more!
When you buy an OG (original garage) Social Club NFT, you're not just buying another digital NFT - you're gaining access to a new way of life that makes this NFT valuable for the long run.
Plus when you've learned enough you can just trade the NFT to someone else who needs it.
Remember, "The More You Learn, The More You Earn."
AS SEEN ON
Tai is one of the most sought-after entrepreneur mentors, but has been limited in his time and has had to innovate to find a simple way to give access to mentorships from him and his group of personal mentors.
The breakthrough was using NFTs to create a hacker proof way to ensure limited memberships that can also be resold to others once a buyer no longer needs it. This minimizes the expense of the mentorship by making it resellable.
Owning an OG NFT gives you insider access into Tai's life, shadow him to learn how to buy real estate and big brands, have a private dinner with him, fly in a private jet with him, attend business meetings with him.
And more importantly, he's giving you access to the millionaires, billionaires, Nobel Prize winners, and wealthy entrepreneurs that are in his personal social circle.
Remember, "It's not what you know, it's WHO you know!"
When Tai Lopez recorded his famous "Here in my garage" video on YouTube back in 2015, it quickly became one of the most watched and parodied commercials of all time, with over 100 million people viewing globally.
Now with over 9 million social media followers, Tai is one of the most popular and talked about business influencers of the past decade and is regarded as one of the "founding fathers" of modern-day internet marketing.
Over the years, Tai made many millions through a combination of a financial planning company, real estate, tech companies, consulting, and buying some of America's biggest legacy brands like RadioShack, Pier1, Dressbarn, Stein Mart, Modells, Linens N' Things, Ralph & Russo and turning them into ecommerce companies with over 100 million website visitors per year.
First you're going to need a custodial wallet like Metamask and fund it with ETH. Then you are going to go to https://opensea.io/collection/tailopez and buy an NFT from that secondary market. I you need more help, watch the tutorials on our #helpful-videos on the OG Discord

Yes, you can still purchase the OG NFT this Friday, March 11th. If you're not able to mint then, you can still purchase in the secondary market via platforms such as OpenSea. This is the correct URL to our collection on OpenSea:
Yes, they are known as Gas fees. These are not set by OpenSeaTM, nor are they set by the OG NFT. Gas fees are the costs of performing any transaction on the Ethereum network. Gas price will vary, depending on how much the network is being used. If the network is very busy, gas will be higher. This video has a more detailed explanation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ78FVSv-vs
A whitelist is an early access list to mint an NFT. People on this list get access to mint an NFT before the general public.
Like most NFT projects, OG NFT had a whitelist for mint, and we will likely have a whitelist for any future NFT drops we do.
Requirements to get on the whitelist are set by each project. Getting whitelisted for future NFT collections will likely have different requirements than those needed to get whitelisted for this first collection.
Unfortunately, there are people out there who are looking to do you wrong and potentially scam or steal your information, so making sure your security is up to date is a must.
The first step is to enable multi-factor authentication, known as MFA or 2FA. This prevents your password from being stolen. To enable it, follow the instructions on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLPx4jGHzY0
DO NOT REPLY TO DMs ON DISCORD!
The vast majority of scams on Discord servers happen because someone clicked on a link that was sent to them privately. Always verify with the administrators and moderators of a Discord server before clicking on any link.
Sometimes scammers will create a fake collection by replicating another project, so it is important to make sure the collection you're buying from is real. Doing your own research before making any purchase is a must. Also make sure that you get the official link to the OpenSea account directly from the project discord or by using the contract address and searching with that in the OpenSea search bar. https://support.opensea.io/hc/en-us/articles/4408474998419-How-can-I-stay-safe-and-protect-my-NFTs-
When purchasing NFTs, you will often be asked to connect your wallet, it is crucial you know the site you are connecting your wallet to is legitimate and safe before doing so. Make sure you do your research beforehand. https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015489591-Basic-Safety-and-Security-Tips-for-MetaMask#:~:text=MetaMask%20does%20not%20control%20any,with%20your%20Secret%20Recovery%20Phrase
NFT is an abbreviation that stands for "Non-Fungible Token". An NFT exists on a blockchain and is entirely unique, with its very own metadata and identification codes that separate one from another. Each NFT can have its own value, unlike regular cryptocurrencies which are identical and can be used as a medium for regular transactions. NFTs, explained: https://www.theverge.com/22310188/nft-explainer-what-is-blockchain-crypto-art-faq
A project is essentially the combination of an NFT Collection and the community of said collection.
A blockchain is a platform where information is recorded and tracked that makes it nearly impossible to hack or cheat the system. When you make a purchase, a transaction fee referred to as "Gas" is required, which allows your transaction to be processed through the blockchain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSo_EIwHSd4
There are two ways to obtain an NFT, the first is minting one and the second is purchasing an NFT from a secondary market. Minting an NFT will create an NFT on the Blockchain and the cost to mint is generally a fixed price. On the other hand, by purchasing an NFT from a secondary market, you will be buying an NFT that has already been minted and the cost can be higher or lower than the mint price depending on how the market evaluates the value of the NFT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfDGFJwPbsE
The easiest way to Mint an NFT would be through the project's website, connect your wallet to their site and follow their instructions on how to Mint.
Majority of the NFT market space uses ETH as their form of currency, the most common marketplace NFTs are traded is OpenSea. Once you have your profile set up and wallet connected to OpenSea, you can purchase an NFT from any collection you like, granted you have the required funds.
To sell an NFT on OpenSea, open up your OpenSea profile and then select the NFT you would like to sell. Press the "Sell" button, then select the option "Fixed Price" and fill out the price and duration you would like to sell for. Alternatively, you could put your NFT up for auction and allow people to bid for it. The first time you sell an NFT, there will be two one time fees you will be required to pay, so keep this in mind when deciding to sell your NFTs.
Ethereum is a blockchain network on which many different protocols operate, including NFTs created on the Ethereum network.
ETH is the main cryptocurrency used to transact on the Ethereum network. You can get it through various crypto exchanges like Coinbase, Binance, FTX, KuCoin, Crypto.com and more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyTxYpIkALo
A non-custodial wallet is a virtual wallet that you can use to store different cryptocurrencies. You are solely responsible for this wallet and its security. MetaMask is a browser extension that serves as a non-custodial wallet, where you can store ETH. Follow this guide to set it up: https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015489531-Getting-started-with-MetaMask
Good information that will give you insights into a project. There are many "Alpha" discords in the space that give you top tier information.

A contract is where all the transactions happen within the blockchain specific for each NFT project.
Stands for "Do Your Own Research"
Short for "Degenerate", often referred to as risky moves when buying NFTs.
Someone who refrains from selling early/Long term investors.
ETH aka Ethereum aka Ether is a cryptocurrency.

Do not be first. Scammers will prey on your sense of urgency and desire to be first, using it against you. Wait until someone else has interacted with the contract first - it'll save you stress and money.
Create a burner wallet. This is a wallet that only contains enough ETH to cover the number of NFTs you are minting from a specific collection and the gas fees. It can be in the same MetaMask as your main wallet, but will have a different address associated with it. Click create account in MetaMask and name it "Minting" or "Burner" as you will only use this wallet for minting. After you mint, you can move your NFTs to your main account (typically, I only move them once they're worth enough to justify the cost). This video will show you starting at 5:00 in ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lWuHWov1p8 )
Disconnect your wallet after you've done your business with a website. You'd be surprised at how many websites your MetaMask might still be connected to. Here's a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RL7LV5Tlc5c) demonstrating how to do it. It's good hygiene to disconnect every time you use a site and to periodically check your wallet to see if any sites are connected.
Be wary of DMs. Most DMs are scams and our community team will not DM you first. If they have to reach out, they will notify you in the saloon first.
Most importantly, do your own research and then trust your gut. Has the team been around for a while? How invested are they in the project? Are any doxxed? If the team has never talked about a mint date, chances are they're not going to spring a surprise one on you in the announcements. A lot of discords have been hacked, so be skeptical if there's a surprise mint or posts coming from discord bots. Remember, if it's too good to be true, it probably is.
The most prevalent scam happening right now with NFTs continues to be around sudden/fake mints. These usually happen one of two ways:
You receive a DM from an account impersonating the project (i.e. OG Social Club Mints Now)
A fake mint link is sent out to a discord, usually coming from a compromised team member (mod, project team, bot) with specific permissions
Both of these stem from the same abuse vector: a phishing scam
Phishing refers to someone impersonating a reputable business/project/person with the goal of getting valuable information (login credentials, tx signature, etc.) from you. This was what likely happened with the latest OpenSea hack.
This can happen via message, email, phone call, etc. It's not so dissimilar to spam phone calls you receive (Hi this is your electric company, you're overdue so give us your credit card).
DMs about Special Collection/Sudden Mint - Someone is trying to get you to click a link to then give up your password/seed phrase or sign a transaction with your wallet.
The most prevalent scam happening right now with NFTs continues to be around sudden/fake mints. These usually happen one of two ways:
Sudden Link Drop In Discord - Someone who has specific permissions (i.e. tag everyone, post links, create channels) was compromised. This likely happened via a phishing scam or social engineering (i.e. pretending to be someone who works their way into a group).
Any DMs you receive about a special mint, collection or drop is likely fake
Any DM you receive with incredible urgency (i.e. you need to mint this NOW, your account may be shut off NOW) is likely a scam
Any sudden mint posts in a discord should always be assumed fake unless proven otherwise
Below are some general best practices to consider:
Try not to click anything from someone you don't know. I know that sounds like a lot, but random DMs you receive, nope. Random links in a discord, nope.
Anything that is extremely sudden or without warning should be looked at with EXTREME caution and skepticism. It is an incredible amount of work putting an NFT project together - insanely unlikely a team is going to just drop a link to the mint.
If you are ever asked to sign something with your wallet or give up your password/seeds phrase - proceed with EXTREME caution. Double check URLs, review the contract, etc. This is how someone gets access to your account.
Don't sign your wallet to anything that you do not know is a legitimate source. Check if it's a legit source by going to their official accounts, google, etc.
Turn off DMs in discord as a default in settings
Use 2FA for everything
Two-factor authentication essentially requires a specific string of numbers (sent via app or text) to log in to an account. So instead of just requiring your email/password to sign in - you have another requirement that is texted to you or on an app (like google authenticator). This is the #1 way you can protect your account (discord, twitter, etc) from compromise!
You got this OGs! Just remember - if you think it might be bad, don't click it!!
