What's new for the 1% Club Community?
What's been happening this week in the 1% Club? Here's everything you need to know! Vol. 2
We got an incredible 106 Community Newsletter subscribers, showing that this Initiative has been a huge success. And for that I say thank you. It really does mean a lot to me.
Finally, I know the branding images used for the Newsletter header etc. are low quality. The 1% Club is having a rebranding, so once that’s completed I’ll use the official graphics and it will look much nicer in all of your emails!
Onto the Newsletter!
Weekly Roundup of all 1% Club News
As of today (30/01/2023) we have 428 1% Club Discord Members! Let's keep the growth going, and make sure to give a warm welcome to all newcomers. As always we continue to be an amazing community!
NFTGod announced the first ever ‘1% Better: Rewards’ content challenge, with the first submission topic being: Threads. The art for the NFT reward has also been revealed, with the creator being Papa Rocko. The competition is still open for submissions until Wednesday, so make sure to make your entry soon!
We also had the implementation of reaction roles. If all of your subcommunities suddenly disappeared and you’ve been left confused, this is why. All you have to do is go into the choose-your-role channel and choose which topics you’re interested in. After doing this they will appear back in your sidebar.
Finally we had the new Newsletters subcommunity channel opened. This is the channel to discuss anything & everything around the creation/management/monetisation of Newsletters (not for posting links to shill your own).
BUT it has a secondary purpose. If you click the #️⃣ thread icon at the top right, you will notice there are 5 threads in there: Community Twitter Spaces, Community Initiatives, Community Achievements, Community Contributions and Community Job Board. If you want something featured in this Newsletter, then simply add it to the relevant Thread and I will put it in!
The use of these threads is pivotal to the success of this Newsletter.
This section is used to deep-dive on one Community Member at a time, to give them the chance to talk about anything and everything they are doing in the Web3 Space.
For this week please give a warm welcome to our second ever guest, amirmusich!
1. Tell us a bit about yourself:
My name is Amir. I am an entrepreneur & music & visual artist. Right now I'm building my personal brand in Web3 space.
I worked my way up from a waiter to the owner of a digital studio that serves such names and brands as: Warner Music, Atlantic Records, Kimberly Clark, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, David Guetta, twenty one pilots and many others.
I've always had a huge passion for music and the music industry.
I started my first rock band in 2008 - and in 8 years we played several hundred shows, toured, and even worked with a Grammy-nominated producer.
Now I'm preparing my best music project - it will be at the crossroads of web3 and web2. And I don't care about the result. I'm finally enjoying music for real.
2. What is your background in Web3?
In November 2021, I was the art director of a major music NFT collection in Russia, in official collaboration with Binance NFT and Warner Music.
After that I got interested in blockchain metaverses - together with my team, we learned about The Sandbox and Decentraland and started building experiences in these metaverses.
In April or May 2022, I came to crypto Twitter to get a deeper understanding of web3.
3. What are you working on in Web3 now?
Since then I've met a lot of friends, started minting and selling my art on Ethereum and Tezos, and hosted weekly Tezos Spaces on Wednesdays where we've bought over 500 NFTs from artists, and continue to improve myself.
Right now I'm building a personal brand in the Web3 space, supporting artists & creatives in my spaces, and building a community of like-minded people who are passionate about mutual support and self-growth.
And, of course, I'm preparing my music project to launch.
I'm also slowly starting to help Web3 people build their best visual presence online.
So many people create great textual content, and at the same time their unappealing visuals discourage their potential new followers.
I believe we need to improve the look of our "facade" on the way to mass adoption. This is a critical point for building greater trust with "normies."
I'm not a fan of NFT collections. I'm still not good at it. But I really enjoy collecting 1/1 art on Tezos and Ethereum.
4. What other things would you like to tell people?
I am a big fan of human creativity, love, kindness, generosity, and an open mind.
I love anyone who sees a better tomorrow, who knows themselves and the world around them with an open mind.
My main goal in life is to find the keys to eternal peace on earth. As naive as that may sound.
I do not believe in the values of any armed conflict, I do not believe in the "truth" of either side.
War is just business, a dishonest and inhumane business.
Sooner or later this business will fall.
Let me appear naïve in the eyes of many. It makes absolutely no difference.
I have great respect for the 1% Club by NFT God,
Bricktopians community by AlexIsBuilding,
as well as our beautiful TezFlava family.
The Web3 community has taught me so much, from a basic understanding of how NFT works, to improving my copywriting skills.
But most importantly, for the first time in my life, I felt the meaning of sincerely searching for my "I" and my "why.
It happened exactly in the web3 world.
5. Where can people find out more about you?
I literally love my LinkTree :D
I picked up my best links in one place: https://linktr.ee/amirmushich
And I'm a super-open person - I can talk and connect with everyone in seconds.
So, I make connections everywhere - from Twitter and Discord to Instagram, LinkedIn, my website etc.
I love sharing value for free - so don't miss the opportunity and drop me a line in DM's.
I'm down to help as much as I can.

Amir has been helping both myself and NFTGod a lot behind-the-scenes. I can’t recommend him enough and I highly suggest speaking to him for any graphics needs you might have.
Community Initiatives, Achievements & Contributions
Macki is starting a Community Initiative called ‘Boost o,clock’. This initiative aims to boost Twitter engagement by scheduling a dedicated group of members to write a Tweet at 12:00am EST every Thursday, and then immediately after they respond and interact with the posts from each other member within the group. By creating high quality and immediate interactions to Tweets, it makes it more likely for the Twitter algorithm to pick it up and gain impressions. This could be a powerful tool to use, so if this interests you, be sure to DM Macki.
MrMeme has also coordinated with NFTGod to host the first ever official 1% Club Twitter Spaces. This will be a regular Twitter Space hosted by NFTGod, co-hosted by 1% Club and MrMeme, and with guest speakers from the community to talk about topics that they are an expert in. The first space will take place on 02/02/2023 (Thursday) and will focus on the topic of video creation with Ray Alva and Alex is Building as guest speakers.
Firstly, can we give a warm congratulations to JayB for his recent achievement this week. JayB was accepted to speak at a conference for the New England Association of Financial Professionals in May about Blockchains, DAOs and NFT's. The topic is "Why should Corporate Treasury Professionals care". They also asked him to speak at a local chapter meeting in March. This is a huge leap into the professional world of Web3, so make sure to message JayB if you have any ideas that could help.
Congratulations are also in order for doggfather who recently got invited to become a regular speaker of ‘The Vault’. The Vault is a live show hosted on Twitter Spaces and Youtube, where they cover the topic of Historical NFTs, with doggfather speaking as the specialist in Counterparty and Dogeparty historical assets. The Vault is set up by EmblemVault, a service provider that is wrapping non-Ethereum NFTs to Ethereum and can be found here: https://twitter.com/EmblemVault
J0ngA has graciously volunteered his time and effort to lead this Community Initiative. His current plan is to host a weekly call in VC where members can discuss how well they hit their goals for the previous week, and outline their goals for the coming week. The summary of these meetings would then be featured in the Community Newsletter to increase the level of accountability.
‘Accountability is the key to personal growth and success. Take ownership of your actions, learn from mistakes and make a conscious effort to improve by joining a weekly call with J0ngA’. -Written by J0ngA.
If you’re interested in forming stronger connections with the most dedicated and goal-oriented members of the community, in a much more personal environment- this is the place for you.
He has requested that I run some polls to find out the best way to run this initiative:
If this is a success, we can have multiple Accountability Groups running, and split each time zone into its own group so that everyone can participate.
If you are interested, make sure to DM J0ngA to share your interest, pitch any ideas you might have, and offer any help you are willing to give. As one of the most demanded features of the Newsletter, I have high hopes for this Community Initiative, so make sure to get involved!

Coming up this week
Coming up this week we have the winner of the first ever ‘1% Better: Rewards’ content challenge. As mentioned the cut-off date for entry is Wednesday and the winner is revealed on Thursday. I personally helped NFTGod curate the top submissions, so I’m particularly interested to see who he picks. There were a lot of great submissions!
Remember we also have the first ever official 1% Club Twitter Spaces hosted by NFTGod and MrMeme on 2nd February (Thursday).
We also have a number of Community Events scheduled for this week:
Firstly we have a Web3 UX call hosted by Miguel. This was supposed to be at 8:00pm EST tonight but is being rescheduled, keep an eye out for the new date.
Tomorrow 31/01/2023 we have a public speaking call hosted by Hugo at 11:00am EST.
As always, the next Club Call Weekly Meeting will be on Friday. The time changes each week to accommodate multiple time zones, so keep an eye out for when that information is released. Make sure to be there!
This Newsletter is completely focused on the community of the 1% Club. So please keep using the threads in the Newsletters channel as much as possible! Without the content, there can’t be much of a newsletter.
Starting next week I will be making more of an effort to bring in guest writers, so expect some things to change slightly. I’ll see how it goes and continue to make decisions to improve the Newsletter from there. I intend to also make it shorter in the future.
As always, thank you for reading. I hope everyone has a happy and productive week. And keep being active in the Discord!
