    The Future Of Art Is Digital, with Trevor Jones, World Renowned Artist

    The Future Of Art Is Digital, with Trevor Jones, World Renowned Artist

    Trevor Jones formally started his art career at the age of 38. He started small, selling his paintings at local gallery exhibitions, catching the eyes of collectors worldwide. His newfound fame allowed him to begin experimenting in the amorphous space at the intersection of technology and fine art. After diving face first into NFTs a year ago, Trevor began striking gold, selling interactive one-of-a-kind art to collectors for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Trevor is now regarded as the lead artist in the NFT space and is spearheading the charge towards mainstream acceptance.
    Scott Melker and Trevor Jones further discuss the artist checklist for success, drinking wine for inspiration, Trevor’s very first art exhibition, painting QR codes and augmented reality, Picasso’s Bull, Nonfungible tokens, an abstract understanding of ownership, selling one piece for $300,000, opening the NFT floodgate, accidentally giving the cold shoulder to Tyler Winklevoss, the different ways to invest in NFTs, emotionally detaching from your own work, how to display an NFT and more.

    Taking Back Your Data From Big Tech with Charles Silver, CEO of Permission.io

    Taking Back Your Data From Big Tech with Charles Silver, CEO of Permission.io

    According to Charles Silver, the CEO of Permission.io, every click on the internet is carefully tracked and packaged into a data gold mine that mega-companies use for their own gain. His company has found an ethical way to give its users the ability to profit off of their own digital footprint rather than having it sold to the highest bidder by multi-billion dollar companies.
    Scott Melker and Charles Silver further discuss living in an Orwellian society, the history of big data, working under Reagan, the debt death spiral, web 3.0, Permission.io, click farms and click fraud, crony capitalism, property rights issues, privacy as a false concept, ASK token, the data economy, the confusion of fiat currency and more.
