Nfts Are Dead, In Fact They Were Never Born
People buy what they’re told to, not what they want or like.
I say that nfts are dead, and in fact they were never born, because that’s what I’m experiencing as a cryptoartist. I struggle to sell my art and photographies, but I’ve noticed that people tend to buy from known artists or collections, not from you, a no one. My sales have been 3 so far, and pretty casual as well. I shill 3 times a day, but that’s not the problem, visibility, the problem is that you’re not famed. Sadly, this being a new fancy, people follow the hype and trends, without reasoning very much about the art or feeling it: a bored ape is worth 30 $Eth? Cool! I buy it! I’ve seen wretched artists selling for various Eth, they got a name casually in the nft space and now they are “artists” that sell for thousands of dollars shitty crap. Now, you may argue that my art sucks and that’s why I complain and I don’t sell a shit, well, I don’t think so. I’m pretty honest with myself, if something is bad I don’t even publish it, not even think about selling it. If you’re curious you can check my “New York My Love” collection at https://opensea.io/collection/newyorkmylove for example. Now, this is not a shilling post, I just want to make the point clear, that even if you’re art is good, you don’t sell anything because you’re not famed, and you are not renowned in the space. This is the consequence of popolurizing art, before art was closed to a small group of interested and genuine appreciators, now with nfts it has spread to everyone, from kids to boomers, and that’s the price we pay: now few cunning people can exploit crowds, riding the wave of “futurism” and “progress”. Where does this lead? Do nfts have a future? I don’t know, I hope so but I’m not sure about it. People need an emotional and artistic education since infancy, that’s a fundamental issue, so maybe they will spend 1 million for a Van Gogh, not for a crypto kitty. Said so, go on OpenSea and BUY my art!
