NFTs? Crypto? Wallets? Blockchain? Token IDs? WTF!
Updated: Feb 17, 2022
Yeah, so I am by no means an expert in this new way of owning digital art. I have helped another artist create some of his NFTs and decided to create a few of my own back in April 2021. The funny thing is, I put them up and forgot to say there were available to purchase so they sat there for months as just my collection of graphic files...doh!
There is quite a learning curve navigating this new NFT world. Or maybe I'm just old? There is new terminology, new currency, new banks (aka wallets), new NFT galleries where you can shop. I have made quite a few mistakes along the way.
So far my experience has been that the people who are winning at the NFT game are people who have a pretty good following and those people want to own a digital piece of their work and are already into the crypto market. I have attended a few online and in-person panel discussions on this market, but they were all people who were already selling big time in the art world and just jumped into the NFT market and had success.
I have several NFTs available and will probably create a few more, but not sure how long I will stay in this game. I am that guy that prefers a hardcover book over a paperback or an e-reader. And I will always have physical pieces of art available that you can hang on a wall, touch, burn, etc.
And if you want to learn more about NFTs here is a fun video by Trevor Noah...enjoy.
