Season 6 Pins Are Here
Season 6 is coming to end, so you best believe you’re getting a free Pin.
But wtf is a Pin?
Well, I’ve given out over 8,000 of them to listeners since Season 2 (over a year ago 🤯), but I never shared my plans for them and why we’re collecting them.
So in this guide, I’ll explain just that.

1. Why You Should Care
At the end of Season 1, I wanted to find a way to reward my earliest listeners and simply give back to them in a fun way.
I got a lot of feedback from people telling me they love the podcast, but it got me thinking there's no way for them to prove their love of the brand forever.
Until I introduced the Pin. 🏆
A Pin gives you bragging rights to prove when you discovered the podcast.
Even more so, the Pin is your key to unlocking fun perks exclusive to NFT collectors.
In other words, collect a Pin every season.
2. What is a Pin?
A pin is an NFT (1155 or 721 token) minted on the Ethereum and Polygon blockchain.
Pins are non-transferable and have zero financial or speculative value.
They act as a token of my appreciation to you, with essential cryptographic perks that will be your key to extracting the most value out of the podcast.
3. What You Can Unlock with Your Pin
Every new season brings an array of surprises.
In Season 4, I gave every Pin holder access to 3 resources:
An article on the beginner’s guide to music NFTs
A database with the top 300 music NFT collectors
5 clever tips on how to utilize the database of collectors
With over 20,000 hits to my website, we had an amazing turnout, and I got a lot of positive feedback from many listeners!
4. How Much does a Pin Cost to Collect?
Pins are FREE to collect, but require gas fees to mint.
Note: When I see bots abusing the system on Polygon, I add a minting price to sway them away temporarily. So if you do see a price, mint a Pin on Ethereum instead.
5. How To Qualify for a Pin?
You need to be subscribed to Mint’s newsletter.
6. How to Collect Your Pin?
After you subscribe in question #3 above, you will automatically be on the whitelist to claim your free Pin. You will receive a link via email to mint your free NFT on my site www.adamlevy.io directly.
YOU WILL NEVER NEED TO GIVE YOUR PRIVATE KEYS…EVER!
If you are asked to give your private keys, DM me on Twitter immediately letting me know.
7. When are Pins Released?
Pins are released at the end of every podcast season.
Each season lasts for about two to three months, and at the end, I will email you a private link to mint your free NFT on either the Ethereum or Polygon network.
8. How to View Your Pin
Visit OpenSea, head over to your profile, and search “Mint Season” to find your Pin!
9. Information on Sponsor Inserts
Why is Lens Protocol plastered on the front of Season 6’s Pin?
Well, they help me keep the lights on.
In order to keep content free for you, I sell three to five NFTs to sponsors per season. The NFT they purchase determines their level of promotion for the respective season.
Lens Protocol came in hot by claiming NFT #1, making this season a reality.
