Digital Scarcity is Boring. [NSFW Art X Blockchain]

Digital Scarcity is Boring. [NSFW Art X Blockchain]

By Rootdraws | sexpop | 15 Sep 2019


As artists are entering the Ethereum Ecosystem, and Entrepreneurs are exploring the viability of Non-Fungible Tokens, and digital scarcity, I decided to assemble some of the research that I've collected on this topic over the last month. 

That research is available in its complete form in this Medium Article.

In order to respect those here on Publish0x, I will provide a summary here as well: 

I've found that the majority of the people in this space are either operating in a limited ecosystem -- such as only focusing on creating work for one, or a handful of platforms 

The problem with this is that each of these platforms has a limited ecosystem in and of itself, and even when artists attempt to expand beyond this, you are only serving people who are already onboarded into the crypto space, and seeking the novelty of an NFT.

In addition to that, the major art collectives that are popping up in the space are only focusing on the digital scarcity and high resolution quality factor for each submission. 

.:. 

The projects that are stepping above the cut of the rest are bringing some unique set of value to their NFTs -- something that provides: 

  • Prestige - Such as a badge you receive when you contribute to a cause.
  • Access - Such as a website / special offer / service / in-game item that is only accessible with an ERC-721 Token
  • Connection - Such as the breeding interaction of Cryptokitties, or the competitive landscape of strategy / card games.
  • Education - An obvious attempt here might be some sort of application that works like flash cards, and trains people on some concept.

These are just a handful of larger areas of development that could be explored by individual developers, artists, and innovators within this space.

For more information, please read through the Medium Article. 

If you'd like to see an active example of my own creative solution to this issue within the NSFW Art / Comics area, you can find my current project campaign below.

I'm welcoming people to design an Ethereum Original Character, which will be unique, open sourced, decentralized in her design, and able to be featured in 1-3 page sex comics, not unlike a Choose Your Own Adventure story.

Design your Crypto-Waifu Here.

Project is active for another 2 days.
