Exploring creativity and the love of fancy things in life through Cryptoart or NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens). An important disclaimer before reading anything else. It’s kind of a must for crypto investment stories nowadays. Articles I publish are not financial advice, as I am not “paper qualified” to give away such advice. This is simply the humble adventures of a crypto and NFT enthusiast.
