Crypto Decentraland How To

Register Decentraland name on blockchain! (and profit)

At the time of writing this will cost about 10$ in transaction fee’s and you can profit over $100 if done correctly.

Decentraland has come a long way last time I was invested in MANA and LAND packages they barley had a working prototype of the level editor online, now its a full blown world and let me tell you its bloody amazing !!

You can do anything, make anything, be anything but this post is not about how dam awesome Decentraland is, this post is about how you can cash in once more by registering a name (avatar) then selling the token on a marketplace like opensea.io.

Of course all the good names are taken and they are already being sold for hundreds some thousands of dollars on the marketplaces, but if you use your imagination you will still find some real gems.

Decentraland custom name

Before we head on over to avatars.decentraland.org lets take a look at something I found interesting while researching a valuable name and this is the DOA (decentralized autonomous organization) behind Decentraland and some of the proposals put up for vote, yep you guessed it people are trying to ban such great names like “NiggerLover“, “Faggot” and “Coon“, needless to say the smart people holding the DOA tokens all voted NO! (imagine what kind of self righteous asshole would even propose name bans….. ).

What kind of self righteous asshole would even propose name bans

Now we know what names are valuable lets go get one, head over to avatars.decentraland.org and of course all the good names will be taken, but keep trying until you find something nice pay your 15$ or whatnot in transaction fees and bobs your uncle, done !

Now head over to your favorite market place and profit….
If anyone wants to purchase the name “gook” from me, it is for sale💰

🐳 How to install docker on any Ubuntu ….

…lets talk about a different kind of docking, If you spend any time at all around developing software or on Linux systems you will inevitably need to install docker (a real life saver indeed), thanks to Ubuntu installing is a breeze.

This was tested on Ubuntu 18.04 but will work on all versions due to the nerdy magic use of ✨$(lsb_release -cs)✨ !

Lets start with a quick update:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Now we can get the system ready by installing the required packages:
sudo apt-get install curl apt-transport-https ca-certificates software-properties-common

Now that we are all ready we can add the Docker repositories, start by adding the GPG key, like so:
curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Now time to add the actual repository and do a final update (I know your attention span is short we are almost done…):
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) stable"
sudo apt update

Finally hey! Now we can Install with the following command !!
sudo apt install docker-ce

And to check all is ok….
sudo systemctl status docker

Congratulations Now all is ok .
But one final task to insure it works as intended (without sudo) and that is add your current user to the docker user group otherwise you will get errors like “Permission Denied when not sudo docker“, to fix this run the commands:
sudo group add docker
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
newgrp docker
docker run hello-world
