I went into an NFT fever dream. Not the insanely positive kind where I announce my early retirement on social media. Just diving into learning about how it works right in the middle of the frenzy.
I’ve followed the no-code/creator economy/content marketing/etc. space for a while and have seen a few people leave it for crypto, DeFi, NFTs, and whatever other Web 3.0 stuff there is out there.
I got a taste for how it happens. I abandoned this blog for weeks after blogging nearly daily for a few months.
But I’ll try to be back.
Anyway, it’s a magnitude shift in Web 3.0. Just following NFTs, a week of news seemed like months in other spaces. So there’s a magnitude shift in how quickly stuff seems to be happening
Then there’s the magnitude of income. When an NFT can be minted at 0.08 ETH or 0.1 ETH on secondary, it can seem like a steal.
But that’s like $300!
So there are creators who have been working on their newsletter, courses, investing in themselves, building consistently for literally years.
And then they see that they have the skills to do a pivot to Web 3.0 stuff. It’s easier to make and sell an NFT for 0.1 ETH than it is to build a video course for $300 or sell a $100/yr subscription to 3 people.
It might not be just for the money. There’s interesting tech, communities, art, etc. But money is a factor. And often a major one.
Okay back to browsing JPEGs……..
