What does the different word means in crypto slang:
Crypto 101 - General Terms
Cryptocurrency - A digital currency in which transactions are verified and records maintained by a decentralized system using cryptography, rather than by a centralized authority.
Decentralization - In blockchain, decentralization refers to the transfer of control and decision-making from a centralized entity (individual, organization, or group thereof) to a distributed network.
Open Source - Software or information that is available to the public at no cost.
Satoshi Nakomoto - The pseudonym/entity that created and release Bitcoin + Blockchain + Distributed Ledger technology to the masses.
Blockchain - A blockchain is a distributed database that is shared among the nodes of a computer network. As a database, a blockchain stores information electronically in digital format. It is a chronological series of “blocks” that are linked together and act as the spine or backbone of the digital ecosystem.
Block - A blockchain collects information together in groups, known as blocks, that hold sets of information. Blocks have certain storage capacities and, when filled, are closed and linked to the previously filled block, forming a chain of data known as the blockchain.
Node - A node, in the world of virtual coins, is a computer connected to a cryptocurrency network and can execute certain functions like creating, receiving, or sending information.
Full Node - Full Nodes support and provide security to the network. These nodes download a blockchain's entire history to observe and enforce its rules.
Lightweight Node - Each user in the network is a lightweight node. The lightweight node has to connect to a full node to be able to participate.
Proof of Work - Proof of work (PoW) is a form of adding new blocks of transactions to a cryptocurrency's blockchain. The work generates a hash that matches the target hash for the current block.
Proof of Stake - Proof of stake is a type of consensus mechanism used to validate cryptocurrency transactions. With this system, owners of the cryptocurrency can stake their coins, which gives them the right to check new blocks of transactions and add them to the blockchain.
Smart Contract/Self Executing Contract - Algorithms that facilitate and enforce obligations without any outside intervention. Stored on the blockchain itself, a smart contract is an unalterable agreement that has specific logic operations akin to a real-world contract. Once signed, it can never be altered.
DApps - Decentralized Applications are applications that run on a distributed computing system, that is, a blockchain network.
DAO - Decentralized Autonomous Organization. A collective of entities that converge on some unified concept and operate as one organism.
DAE - Decentralized Asset Ecosystem. An acronym within the cryptoverse that is used to describe any platform capable of supporting crypto asset exchanges.
DeFi - The choice acronym used to reference to Decentralized Finance.
FIAT Currency - What we know as the political denomination of money. Money that is backed by political positioning and global influential strength.
Shitcoin - The terminology created by the decentralized crypto community to refer to projects that are garbage/dead-end fakes.
Ethereum - A blockchain platform with its own cryptocurrency, called Ether (ETH) or Ethereum, and its own programming language, called Solidity. As a blockchain network, Ethereum is a decentralized public ledger for verifying and recording transactions.
Tezos - A decentralized open-source blockchain. Like Ethereum, Tezos is designed to make use of smart contracts. The term “Tezos” is ancient Greek for “smart contract,” according to the developers, with the symbol XTZ.
Baking - The process that Tezos uses to append new blocks of transactions to its blockchain. It is a kind of delegated proof of stake. Bakers receive rewards for each block baked, similar to how Bitcoin miners receive rewards for discovering new blocks.
Delegated - A network structure that segments the flow of data based on authoritative access to the data silos/ reservoirs.
Mining - The process in which nodes compete with each other to verify and publish transactions.
Farm – This relates to the mining of cryptocurrency. Farms are large-scale operations that make mining more efficient.
Fork - A network split. Usually happens when there is some necessary software code update that requires ditching the previous copy of the code.
Orphaned Block - A valid block that has been abandoned by the network due to a fork. Later on, it is adopted back onto the chain to which it originally belonged.
API - Application Program Interface. A software that basically tells other software’s how they should interact with each other.
QR code - Quick response code. A pictograph depiction of some API that can be machine scanner read.
Whale - The term used to refer to very high net worth crypto wallet addresses (individuals) or high value on & off-chain transactions.
White-Paper - A report or guide that is used to inform the public of a project's specifications. The equivalent of a business prospectus or plan.
Cryptoart 101 - General Terms
NFT - Non-Fungible Token. A unique digital certificate, registered in a blockchain that is used to record the ownership of an asset such as an artwork or a collectible.
Fungible - Refers to the property of an asset whose individual units are interchangeable and essentially indistinguishable from each other.
Token - Technically, “token” is just another word for “cryptocurrency” or “cryptoasset.” It describes all cryptocurrencies besides Bitcoin and Ethereum. But, it also describes certain digital assets that run on top of another cryptocurrencies’ blockchain.
Mint - Minting is the process of validating information, creating a new block, and recording that information into the blockchain. When you upload your artwork through different platforms or via your own smart contract, you’re minting an NFT into the blockchain.
Burn - Burning happens when a token is intentionally sent to an unusable wallet address to remove it from circulation. The address, which is called a burn address or eater address, can't be accessed or assigned to anyone. Once a token is sent to a burn address, it's gone forever.
Swap - Swap allows users to easily exchange one cryptocurrency for a token without leaving their blockchain wallet. In cryptoart swapping is mostly referred to set a specific price into your NFTs so people can acquire them.
GAS - The blockchain agnostic/universal term (gwei on Ethereum, gas on NEO, etc) used to refer to the micro payments that help coordinate transaction digestion.
Secondary Market - Where collectors re-sell NFTs they previously purchased in order to make money in return or to higher the artist floor.
Flipping - When someone acquires an NFT and flips it to a higher price in order to be sold on secondary market and make money in return.
Floor - The lowest price set by collectors on secondary market from an artist NFT. The floor is the lowest price an NFT can be bought immediately.
Sweep the Floor *project owners - When a project buys all of its NFTs at the current floor price. The term sweep refers to buying all the NFTs listed at the current floor price.
Sweep the Floor *buyers - When buyers sweep the floor, it is usually because of momentum or project news.
Drop – The term we use for the release of new digital collectibles. So if an artist is ‘dropping’ a new NFT, it means you can go and collect it.
AirDrop - A method of distributing cryptocurrency or NFTs in which market participants do not need to exchange their existing assets for a new one; but rather receive it based on some prerequisite factors (such as holding a parallel cryptocurrency or NFT in their wallets)
BUIDL - A clever play off of the word Build. Made up by the “crypto - cultural” nature of misspelling.
HODL - A misspelled version of HOLD. Once upon a time, in a crypto forum an enthusiast posted a status in which he accidentally wrote hodl instead of hold; it caught on like wildfire.

Shill - Unsolicited propagation or promotion of crypto projects usually happening through Twitter or Discord.
NFT Collection - Where all of the NFTs you have acquired are stored and can be viewed inside different crypto platforms.
Creative Commons (CC) - Creative Commons is an internationally active non-profit organization that provides free licenses for creators to use when making their work available to the public.

Hard Wallet - A physical storage device that stores private keys, tokens, or cryptocurrencies.

Here is some suggestions for sizes:
Minimum 2500x2500 pixels but higher is good. But above 10.000 pixels might prevent some to download your images.
MP4 HD or 4K, but 720p works too, looping videos around 10-60 seconds are most popular. Long and big videos might prevent people from loading them.
