    Founders of nft now on the Bear Market, Mental Health, and More

    Much has changed since the nft now founding team last held a fireside chat back in December 2021 on the state of NFTs. Eight months into 2022, we’ve seen seismic changes in the NFT ecosystem as initial growth, promise, and schisms in the space contend with the reality of the bear market. 
    However, despite this new reality, there’s plenty to be hopeful about. The founders review some of their favorite artists rising in the space, review common and stubborn vulnerabilities for budding projects, and imagine a brighter future as Web3 continues to unfold, stretching to unprecedented horizons.
    In this episode we cover:
    The hidden blessings brought on by the bear marketKeeping your mental health in check during the bear marketThe team’s favorite NFT artists and projects currently active in the spaceSectors in the NFT space where progress is most likely

    Should AI Scare Artists?

    Should AI Scare Artists?

    Claire Silver is a crypto artist who gives expression to her creative vision using the power of AI. Instead of creating new art by hand, Silver’s crypto art is the output of generative adversarial networks (GANs), which explore themes of “vulnerability, trauma, disability, social hierarchy, innocence, and divinity”. In doing so, her work questions “the role they will play in our transhumanist future.” Silver’s work also reflects a shifting paradigm into the broader art world: taste is the new skill. With AI tools that — in theory — can execute any artistic idea, all that’s left is the idea, which can only come from the artist themselves.
    In this episode we cover:
    Whether artists should feel threatened by the emergence of AIThe biggest misconceptions surrounding the role of AI in artSilver’s creative process and the various AI tools she usesHow an artist’s taste is the deciding factor for the quality of their work

    Baron Davis on Why Sports Will Lead Web3

    For longtime NBA fans, Baron Davis — affectionately known as B-Diddy during his playing career — needs no introduction. Despite retirement, Davis remained in the spotlight by launching ventures in the media and entertainment industries.
    Recently, Davis used his sizable platform to encourage professional athletes to invest in the NFT and Web3 ecosystems. Headlining this initiative is his “History of the Game” project aimed toward creating an enriched storytelling experience on the history of the sport he and millions of others hold so dear. He’s also slated to put his advocacy into action later this year with the upcoming Black Santa NFT drop, which will give the auction’s winners crucial roles (including a voiceover) in developing an upcoming animated series centered around the character.
    In this episode we cover:
    Davis’ extensive involvement in the NFT landscapeHis upcoming NFT projects and crucial industry partnershipsDavis’ mindset as a creator and businessmanHow NFTs are creating new ways for athletes and sports fans to connect and engage
