CAN – Reading through gmoney’s Twitter feed is like peering into the present, and arguably future of the nft artspace. He gives his views and opinions freely and with almost prescient vision, as his outlook on cryptoart and nfts in general is most often correct.
While many of us look on in amazement at some of the figures being mentioned in the latest cryptopunk or Beeple sales, it’s important to note that gmoney has also helped others to reach new heights with their art by reaching out personally to them in order to raise their profile and opportunities. One such example would be his recent collaboration with @TwerkyPepe, which has helped the artist achieve new heights in terms of sales and a host of new collectors.
CAN would argue that this is part of the potential of the cryptoart and nft space, as collectors and artists hopefully nurture relationships that create new opportunities for both, while crucially retaining artistic integrity and authenticity. Anything less reduces the artist.
With the inevitable talk of sales and money rising in the nft space in general, gmoney’s most telling piece of advice from his interview is perhaps:
Stick to things that you like. Support those artists. You want them to keep making those things you enjoy, so you need to make sure they can do it.gmoney – cryptoartnfts.com
CAN hopes to follow up this piece with a more in-depth podcast in the near future, gmoney willing.
