Art is undoubtedly the focal point of the NFT ecosystem. From 3D renders and hand-drawn avatars to photographs, songs, movies, and beyond, — with NFTs, nearly any type of intellectual property can be immortalized on the blockchain. Because of this, over the past two years, we’ve witnessed the NFT space grow and evolve to encompass a large assortment of artistic endeavors from a truly wide variety of artists from all disciplines.

The NFT space, like many societal domains, isn’t necessarily known for its diversity and inclusion. This is especially true when it comes to the representation of LGBTQ+ artists and individuals. As we enter Pride Month though, LGBTQ+ artists are taking center stage. While diversity should be celebrated year-round, these exhibitions and projects by queer creators remind the community of the importance of representation. Two artists who have made a name for themselves in both the NFT and LBGTQ+ communities are Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti, an award-winning art duo and a married couple who run the art house Operator. This week, […]

People Are Creating Absurd NFTs to Try and Fix the Market

Comments are off for this post.
NFTs are down. Crypto is down. So what has the Web3 community been up to? Meme-ing, apparently. In the NFT space alone, we’ve seen a host of absurd — and often humorous — projects climb up the ranks on OpenSea. Most notable is the quick rise of Goblintown to the top of OpenSea’s charts. Named after a Web3 synonym for ‘bear market,’ beneath the project’s crass exterior lies a very earnest plea to the community: we know that times are tough, so we hope you’ll stick with us and build. To its credit, the NFT community at large seems to […]

This Mural Will Only Exist for a Year, but Its NFT Counterpart Is Immortal

What does ownership mean in the NFT space? Critics of NFTs have used this question as one of their main points against the burgeoning technology, arguing that NFT ownership is supposedly meaningless. By their logic, all you truly do own when purchasing an NFT is a hyperlink to an image or file hosted on a separate site. But how does this argument hold up in practice? As shown by the utility of projects like Bored Ape Yacht Club and Goblintown — it doesn’t. Bored Ape holders gain all commercial rights to whatever apes they own; granting them the ability to […]
