A business empire is often defined as a large commercial organization or group of businesses owned or controlled by one person or entity. These organizations are powerful and governed by a centralized authority. For example, think of the Big Tech behemoths of the Web2 world – Meta, Amazon, and Google.

The NFT featuring a young boy who is black and has dreams of being an astronaut spoke volumes and touched many — and all without ever needing to say a word from under his oversized space helmet.
