    [Cent Spotlight] From Major League Baseball to Crypto Art with Micah Johnson

    [Cent Spotlight] From Major League Baseball to Crypto Art with Micah Johnson

    Each artists' backgrounds are like a creative fingerprint, every one is unique. 
    Diving into those individual stories is a huge part of why I love recording these Spotlight episodes. Case in point, my guest this week: @MicahJohnson. 
    Micah is a former major league baseball player turned artist who recently fell head first into the crypto art space. I'm extremely excited to share our conversation, which I've broken up into two parts. 
    In this first part I ask Micah to share his background, creative style, thoughts and impressions on crypto art and insights into how the worlds of sports and art are more closely related than they might appear.

    [Cent Spotlight] Outlining Crypto Art with @dowdy

    [Cent Spotlight] Outlining Crypto Art with @dowdy

    Silhouettes are stories. Real, profound stories.
    When I first came across @dowdy and his work, I was struck by how much his silhouette heavy art seemed to say to me. 
    We spoke about his evolution from silhouettes to focusing on POC in his work, what it's like being a new crypto artist on the scene, theories on pricing one's art, what quality art is, and more.
    As a collector and fan, I was looking forward to speaking with Dowdy for a while. I hope you enjoy listening to is as much as I did recording.

    [Special Interview] James Morgan, Co-founder of KnownOrigin.io

    The buidl is strong with @KnownOriginio (KO) yall. Based on my chats with artists in the space and after talking with most of the platforms, I can say that there is a special excitement and energy surrounding KO that's quite unique.  
    Last week @rizzle and I had a really candid chat with James Morgan, co-founder of KO, about insanely exciting topics like how to achieve mass NFT adoption, v.2 of the @DAOSaka Crypto Art DAO, their work on creating an NFT lending & rental smart contract and more.

    [Cent Spotlight] Zooming in on Lens-based Artist @UrBen

    [Cent Spotlight] Zooming in on Lens-based Artist @UrBen

    Thoughtful. Profound. Spiritual. And talented.
    Those words best describe the Centian Spotlighted this week. This week, @matthew had the pleasure to speak with @UeBen, a lens-based artist out of the UK. The duo talked about Ben's sublime art but also veered into much more in-depth topics such as Zen Buddhism, spirituality and traditions, Aztech stargazers, crypto art collecting, and more.
    Please enjoy this week's Cent Spotlight.

    [Special Interview] Nate Geier & Carolin Wend from Mintbase.io

    [Special Interview] Nate Geier & Carolin Wend from Mintbase.io

    The non-fungible token space is going through a massive period of growth and experimentation. When it comes to leading the way for that change, the growing number of platforms are out in front. This week @matthew and @rizzle had the chance to interview both Nate Geier & Caroline Wend from the NFT minting & selling platform Mintbase. Not all platforms are created equal, and Nate walks us through the importance of Verified Contracts when it comes to NFT minting solutions, the current limitations of storing all NFT image metadata on distributed file sharing solutions like IPFS (and skepticism of companies claiming they rely entirely on it), as well as their plans to form a Minters DAO to help shepherd in a new era of community hosted and stored data. This episode may seem a little more technical than usual, but that's because Nate, in particular, tried to give as much detail as possible to clarify the current state of the NFT space and its infrastructure.
