Here we are, at the beginning of a new year, a time that, at least in the past, used to be full of hope and anticipation, but after the last two years requires a deep breath and a brace for impact. But, there are still many fascinating and encouraging developments underway all around us, and there's an awful lot to be grateful for. We're all grateful to work alongside an authentically magical human being, known to mere mortals as Tim Schneider, Artnet News's art business editor. As longtime listeners know, Tim undergoes a mystical transformation at the beginning of every new year to become a soothsayer capable of peering into the future to see what the months ahead hold for the art industry. Tim recently published his prognostications on Artnet News Pro, and this week he joins Andrew Goldstein to break out a few of the most pressing predictions he made, from Beeple's potential gallery representation to the future of art fairs amidst the ongoing pandemic.

On this week's episode, we take a look back at 2021 with clips from a number of different episodes. We kicked off Art Sense in June of this year and have thus far interviewed 34 guests over 26 episodes. Guests have included best selling authors, museum curators, art historians, blue chip artists, auction house execs, technology experts, crypto artists and top collectors. Guest artists have included the likes of Sandy Skoglund, Marilyn Minter, Raymond Pettibon, Eric Fischl, SWOON, and Mona Kuhn. 2021 is destined to be known for year two of the global pandemic and the rise of NFTs. The market for NFTs skyrocketed over the course of the year and I was able to bring you conversations with some of the most knowledgeable and influential voices in the industry. In March, Beeple's “First 5000 Days” sold for $69 million through an auction at Christie's. Over the course of the year, I spoke to the auction house executive that brokered the deal as well as the person who paid the $69 million to acquire the work. Crypto artists like Sarah Zucker, Robness and Jen Stark provided the artists' perspective, while Colborn Bell explained what motivated him to create the Museum of Crypto Art. There was one question that I asked each guest from this space. What's in store for the future of NFTs and what hurdles stand in the way?

Apropos – der tägliche Podcast des Tages-Anzeigers

Das drittteuerste Werk eines lebenden Künstlers wurde dieses Jahr für 69 Millionen Dollar versteigert. Es ist ein rein digitales Werk des Künstlers Beeple, gehandelt als Non Fungible Token (NFT).  NFTs sind eine Art digitale Echtheitszertifikate. Sie zeigen an, wer das Original eines digitalen Bildes, Videos oder Memes besitzt – unabhängig davon, wie viele identische Kopie davon sich bereits frei zugänglich im Internet finden. Der NFT-Hype hat aber nicht nur die Kunstwelt erfasst. Auch Modelabels, NGOs oder Musikerinnen versuchen, damit Geld zu machen.  Und die Young Boys verkaufen animierte Panini-Bilder als NFTs.Warum sind diese digitalen Zertifikate so begeht? Wie krempeln sie um, was wir unter Besitz verstehen? Und was hat der Hype am Kunstmarkt mit einer neuen, digital-affinen Klientel zu tun?

2022 was another big year in the art scene. Gallery openings got canceled, digital viewings had to continue to suffice, and NFT's exploded on to the market. It was really Beeple's collage work, Everydays: The First 5000 Days, sold via Christie's for $69 US million that got everyone stirred up. That was March. Since then, the NFT/crypto market has been a rollercoaster ride. And I'll be honest, it still seems like something pretty foreign to me and probably a lot of artists I know and have spoken to. However, Saatchi Art are looking to change that. My last guest of the season is Monty Preston. Monty is a manager of Art Advisory and Curation at Saatchi Art.

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K269: Collins Dictionary picks ‘NFT' as word of the year   Collins Dictionary has chosen the term NFT as its word of the year after surging interest in the digital tokens that can sell for millions of dollars brought it into the mainstream. 《柯林斯詞典》於近日選出「NFT」為年度詞彙!該數位貨幣交易動輒高達數百萬美元,各界對它的興趣大增,並成功打入主流市場。 NFT is short for non-fungible token. Collins defines it as “a unique digital certificate, registered in a blockchain, that is used to record ownership of an asset such as an artwork or a collectible.” NFT是「非同質代幣」的縮寫,《柯林斯詞典》將NFT定義為「一種基於區塊鏈的獨特數位認證,用於記錄藝術品或收藏品等資產的所有權。」 Most people didn't know what an NFT was until this year, when sales boomed, sparked in large part by artist Beeple's March auction of a digital collage NFT for nearly US$70 million (approximately NT$2 billion). Experts at Collins said they chose NFT because of its “meteoric rise in usage,” up 11,000 percent this year. 人們原本對NFT很陌生,但自從數位藝術家畢波今年三月以近七千萬美元(近二十億台幣)的天價,售出一件數位拼貼作品後,NFT熱潮隨即興起,人們紛紛將目光投向NFT市場。柯林斯的專家表示,NFT一詞的使用量「迅速竄升」,今年已增長一百一十倍。 “NFTs seem to be everywhere, from the arts sections to the financial pages and in galleries and auction houses and across social media platforms,” said Alex Beecroft, managing director of Collins Learning. But whether NFT will have a lasting influence is yet to be determined, he added. 「柯林斯學習」的總經理比克羅夫特表示︰「NFT似乎無所不在,從藝術領域到金融版面,並且在畫廊、拍賣會還有社交平台都有它的蹤影。」他補充︰「但NFT是否會產生持久的影響,仍有待觀察。」Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/12/06/2003769067

TZ, Alexis, and him also discuss a bit of art history, how NFTs align incentives between artists and curators/collectors, and the future of smart contracts in the art world.

Specialist at Christie's in the contemporary arts department with a focus in NFTs. He started working on NFTs in March with his intro to NFTs during the first Beeple @beeple sale. Getting into NFTs and bringing them to Christie'sHow did Noah first get into NFTs? "NFTs really found me." Before he was head of NFTs at Christie's, he was the head of online sales for contemporary art. He was in the office last January to see an IRL piece of art for an auction. His colleague, Megan Doyle, brought an NFT opportunity to his attention. She had been contacted by MakersPlace for a possible NFT consignment, and asked Noah if he would be open to putting an NFT in his sale. Noah barely knew about NFTs. All he really knew was that Beeple sold his NFT at Nifty Gateway for $6 million, and that NFTs are a new asset class running on a blockchain foundation. What drew Noah into NFTs, beyond the art, was the promise of decentralization and the things that blockchain can do.  "We are heading towards a future that will have a foundation in blockchain. You can either end up with the state run dystopian future or you can build one yourself." Noah wants to see a future where there is a decentralized metaverse that is owned by the people for the people. If he can help do that within Christie's, a 200+ year old company, that could be really significant. Bringing NFTs to Christie's In the first conversation Noah had with Christie's they mainly talked about cryptocurrency.  Noah knew that some of their top clients were into crypto. He believed that NFTs were the perfect opportunity to jump into the space. The fact that it was ephemeral wasn't daunting to them. Christie's has sold dinosaur bones. If they can create some kind of excitement around an auction, Christie's will find a way to make it work. "I am really grateful towards Christie's for lending me such a long leash." NFTs have been reliably profitable for Christie's. They are now approaching $120,000,000 in total volume for the year. It's going to be 5% of their turnover. For the first Beeple sale more than 90% of applicants were not previously known to Christie's. Although this was more the NFT community and Beeple's community, Noah will continue to set the stage for artist to showcase their work. How did Noah's college degree in English with a focus on Absurdist post war french theater play a roll in Noah's love for NFTs? The absurdity of selling an asset that doesn't physically exist was extremely attractive to him.  "I think a lot about the theater of the absurd in the context of NFTs. What really drew me in was how counterintuitive NFTs are to the standards of the 21st century contemporary art world." Noah never felt like he completely fit in. He was sort of put off by the pretentious vibes in contemporary art, and how people tend to take themselves too seriously. Eugene Ionesco's play, The Bald Soprano, plays a huge role in understanding Absurdism.  The story behind the play is that one day while Ionesco was learning French and English, he was reading the textbooks and thought it was absurd that they were trying to teach him family dynamics. This then lead him to believe that the foundation of language is super shaky and unreliable. In the play, The Bald Soprano, nothing makes sense. It is indebted to people that question the moral and aesthetic values, at the time, by way of absurdity. "Ionesco would love NFTs." NFTs and ArtWhat is the future of NFTs in the traditional art world?In the traditional art world, you will see a lot more adoption from contemporary artist who dabble on digital media.  The more mega blue chip galleries that jump into NFTs, the more inspired artist will be to take the leap. To understand and overcome that stigma of NFTs as a step below "intellectually speaking" what contemporary art normally is, is a very challenging medium to master. "As more artist embrace this, we will see really dynamic projects coming forward and new amazing 1 of 1 art work from amazing talented bluechip artist."  Right now people like Tom Sachs (@tom_sachs) and Damian Hirst (@hirst_official), are the only real Fine Artists from the blue chip world that have mastered this. They are playing by the rules of the NFT space, but they are speaking directly to a crypto native audience. However, there will be artist that enter the NFT world, play by the old rules and somehow succeed. It's going to be a difficult bridge to build and the needle has really only been threaded once successfully with Christie's auction of Andy Warhol NFTs with the Andy Warhol foundation. They tokenized digitally native works that Andy made for the amiga computer. Art Basel NFT prediction?There will be a base line of friction from two different worlds. That's good because those sparks is where you get something creative.  “There will be a lot of chatter around NFTs for sure.” Christies is collaborating with NFTnow during Art Basel to host an event. They have built a, 2400 square foot, space in a bank building and repurposed it as an art gallery. Superrare and Collector 33 will have a presence there. “To see all this art, in this environment, is going to be interesting because we haven't really nailed the exhibition component of NFTs yet.” They have learned a lot and they are going to be applying all of it in Miami. You need to correctly activate the immersive quality of some of these artworks. Christie's and OpenSea sale? So far all the NFT sales Noah has conducted at Christie's have been off-chain, and because they are off-chain it is hyper manual.  All of the movement of the tokens are analog and payment is pretty clumsy. "It's like we are operating in this new dimension, but we are still pushing the buttons and pulling the string from the old one." This is their first collab with Opensea, if it goes well there is no reason why Christie's should auction their NFTs off chain. There will still be a place for traditional auctions, like the Beeple (@beeple) one they recently sold. But, if they are selling an ether rock and they are marketing that to a crypto native audience they can't get away with off chain. When's Christies DAO? "The idea of a DAO is an incredible thing." As much as Noah is really fighting to push things forward. There are things he wants to be really careful with. Like building in the metaverse and thinking about airdrops. Regulation is going to catch up with us and until these unknown areas are become more defined. There's no reason for a corporation like Christie's to dive in the front. NFT space and ArtistsWhat was the process of promoting Beeple's sale on Discord? Noah wasn't really involved in the promotion of the first Beeple sale.  At the time he was going more of the traditional media route, and still learning about NFTs and crypto. "The first time I heard someone refer to Ethereum as ETH, I took a beat and I had no idea what that meant, I didn't know what it was. I bought my first Ethereum in April." Noah didn't join Discord until after the Beeple sale. Because he hasn't used social media in a long time, he was very cautious. Justin Aversano (@justinaversano) invited Noah into Cryptopunk's Discord channel to promote the sale of a Cryptopunk that Christie's was having in May. He felt like he didn't belong there. He felt like he was the corporate salesman. Now he has his ens name in his username. But it took the same push to get him on Twitter too. Noah was so scared, his username was "Noah the Poser". Secondary Sales in a world on Smart Contracts. The first big contemporary art auction took place in the 80s.  The artist themselves were at the auction, and they accosted the seller because he bought the photos for $1,000's and he was selling them for $10,000's. "There was an intense animosity at the moment between the artist and the collector because it felt like it was deeply unfair, and it is." There are certain places in Europe that already have a resale royalty, and California was really pushing for this too. Noah strongly believes that artist should absolutely have these royalties.  With NFTs and blockchain, the artist and the creator have complete control over this. "The blockchain doesn't care. What you tell it to do, it is going to execute it. It is never going to make a mistake"If you program it with protocols that are fair, those will be the rules forever. Right now is the time to make sure that these rules make sense, are fair, and are equitable. Artist should own their smart contract, and have their own independence so that they can never get duped. That kind of responsibility and independence is very admirable. It is the way forward. Manifold is behind a lot of artist's smart contracts. Their philosophy is that artist should own their own smart contract. Working with artists "I love artists. I like to make art when I am not working for Christie's." Noah used to only get involved with the collectors or estates, and rarely with artists. Unless they were complaining, which is reasonable.  When contemporary art comes to auction it is usually not under the best circumstances. There's an industry term referred to as the "three D's". Divorce, debt, and death are the three major driving forces that bring contemporary art to auction. You are starting from a place of negativity. Working with artists, however, is all about positivity.  Noah feels such an incredible bond with the artists, like Beeple. He's made art with Fewocious (@fewocious) and has had lunch with Joshua Davis (@JoshuaDavis). "I hang out with these guys and it just feels right." Before he felt weird and almost felt like the enemy. Now he feels like he is helping these artist tell their stories. "The NFT space is magical. Everything I felt frustrated with in the contemporary art world is not at play in this space." If you were stranded on an Island and you could only take one NFT from your collection or any collection, which would you take? From Noah's collection, he would take his CrypToadz or his Deadfella. From any collection, Noah would take CryptoPunk 4301. It's from the collection of Sov.eth. It's a wild white hair with VR and pink lipstick. Noah was glowing while he was talking about this.

This is your host Adam Larson, and for episode 156, we welcome back Dr. Sean Stein Smith. With the constant evolution and advancements around crypto. Sean joins count me in again to talk about various reports and newsworthy information relating to stablecoins and digital assets. From standards on cryptocurrency to NFTs and decentralized finance. You'll want to keep listening to learn about what it all means and hear some of the potential future implications. Let's head over the conversation now.  Mitch: (00:48) So Sean, you've joined us for a few episodes now and in previous conversations you've discussed blockchain. Lastly, we talked about accounting standards for cryptocurrencies. Now there have been more advancements and additional considerations around crypto assets. I'd first like to get your thoughts on the report and the recommendations on stablecoins from the president's working group on financial markets. I know that came out a few weeks ago now, early November. I was just wondering if you can kind of summarize what was included in that report and why it is so important as an update.  Sean: (01:21) Absolutely Mitch. And I'm always happy to be on here talking with you blockchain, crypto asset updates, because it really is one: a hot topic and two: an area that is increasingly of importance for everybody working in accounting, finance, economic roles, whether in industry management or elsewhere. So, so in terms of sort of the highlights and the core points in the president's working group report there really what I would say is that honestly, on the one hand, I would say that the involved actors, right, be it, the OCC, FDIC, private sector corporations had done a pretty good job at outlining the, the base case and the fundamentals for how a stablecoin operates. Right. But on the other hand, they were, I believe a bit overt or unbalanced in terms of how they analyzed the whole stablecoin ecosystem, right. In terms of the pros and the cons. And especially in terms of the, risks, right, that having a actual stablecoin based payment network actually get, get to that level of being used at a commercial level by either corporations or by whole nation states. But, overall, probably the top two or three points there is that one they've, they've done a good job at researching and trying to pull out sort of who the, big players are out there. And there honestly really only are a handful of them and the, and the bulk of the transactions happening in any stablecoin outlook now are handled by a, by a handful of organizations and the bulk of those, transactions are also happen with coins backed on the one-to-one basis at the US dollar. And then two, sort of they also did a good job, I believe at outlining sort of the pros and cons, obviously more on the cons side, but, but a pretty good job at outlining the pros and cons of having a stablecoin based payment network versus the current Fiat based network. And then three. And, and here's where I think there's the most promise, but also the highest risk. On the one hand, they also outlined and by they, I mean, the members of the working group, outlined really what, what, factors and components any organizations trying to use a stablecoin payment network would have to take into account meaning who the counterparties are, who has the insurance, and then how are these platforms and these connections between these different involved organizations able to be secure. And then ultimately the end result of all of that of that conversation and I believe the actual report was about 28 pages. The end result kind of mirrors the policy paper put out by Coinbase back on October. And, and in both of those white papers, both of which were between 15, and 30 pages long. So they aren't massive documents, but the end goal or the end call to action on both documents, which I find quite interesting is this call for a new crypto specific, regulator that, that, that has powers or is imbued with powers by, by Congress to directly oversee all aspects of the, crypto asset space. So overall probably I would give it like a "B Minus" in terms of the output. Cause on the one hand, the working group did a good job at outline the issues, outlining terminology, characteristics, and traits, and, highlighting some of the core issues out there. But they were, I believe a bit unbalanced in their outlook in terms of the pros and the cons.  Mitch: (05:31) It's so funny, you bring that up because I read through the paper and as we got towards the end, you know, particularly when they summarized everything at the end, there's a statement that they gave, it says while the scope of this report is limited to stablecoins, work on digital assets and other innovations related to cryptographic and distributed ledger technology is ongoing throughout the administration. So it sounds like they are aware that they did not cover everything that they needed to necessarily, or maybe something else is in the works. You know, that's kinda where I was going with my next question. Other innovations in this space, can you take a guess at what they might be referring to?  Sean: (06:11) I mean, man, if I had access to that data, I mean, I'd be on a beach somewhere, which, but probably if I had to hazard a guess, I would say that the top two areas, and obviously there have been quite, public comments out of the SEC and the IRS in terms of their really uptick in compliance efforts, collection efforts, enforcement efforts. So I would say that probably one output or outcome that I am sort of eyeing to happen during 2022 is that there is going to be out of some agency don't know which one yet. I would say probably the SEC there is going to be some sort of, framework or guideline to help companies get a better handle on which type of crypto asset falls into which, financial instrument bucket. And by that, I actually mean if I'm issuing a token or a coin, is that gonna be treated as a, equity, security, commodity or some other form of instrument? So I say on the one hand, that's probably an area, that they are trying to work on and by they, if the White House Congress and the various, oversight agencies, and then two, what I would say is that currently I'm hearing quite a bit of, chatter about NFTs, but I haven't hearing quite a bit about NFTs because even though now the conversation around NFTs is, you know, kind of focused on like the Board Ape NFTs and you know, Beeple in March of this year. And it's more athlete and artist and artwork focused the implications for this new type of crypto asset nonfunctional token, or, NFT are actually quite broad. So I would not be surprised at all if, you know, going forward NFTs are an area that the White House and policy makers and regulators try to really get a handle on, right. Because they because on the one hand, Bitcoin is the headline news story, but that's kind of old news, in terms of hacks and other policy choices, right? Like it or not, they've sort of outlined how they view Bitcoin. And now in this president's working group, they've basically started the ball rolling on trying to regulate, any stablecoin issuers, whether, whether it's correct or not is a whole other conversation. But, and so then I would say NFTs are the next big area. And then DeFi is also probably the, the next area. I'd say NFT's more concrete, because to be honest with you, DeFi is still, a fast moving and it is so new that I don't think many policy makers have the, expertise to have a real conversation around DeFi quite yet.  Mitch: (09:28) So let's stay there for a second. I know you referenced getting to NFTs and I guess, you know, we can transition there first and we'll jump back to, to where we need to. NFTs were so hot, again, non fungible tokens, so popular. It seemed like everybody was talking about it. as early as you know, it seems like yesterday, but then at the same time, it seems like it's cooled off pretty quickly compared to something like Bitcoin or some of the other stablecoins. So what, what happened? Are we missing something or is it still heating up? You know, what's the status on NFTs?  Sean: (10:00) NFTs are an extremely interesting area, right? Because as I was saying, just, earlier that the guess one of the main focus has been on, you know, artwork and entertainers, Tom Brady's in it now. John Cena is in it now, you know, there are all of these athletes and entertainers that have either, you know, committed their own NFTs or have been endorsed by NFT trading platforms all the rest. So yes, absolutely. Right now, there is some fraud out there in the NFT space and actually during the middle of November, there actually was a headline that actually quite a few of the more recently issued as of that time NFTs dropped by 80% in economic value, which I think is obviously bad if you are a holder, of those NFTs during that drop. But, you know, it's a correction and it's painful, but it's part of how the asset class is ultimately is ultimately gonna have to grow, right. Because sure, NFTs are new and they're hot sort of frothy, but the underlying economic opportunity in a NFT niche, it's a traceable transparent immutable record of ownership in a, virtual world. And so that idea, that concept is tremendous, right? So that's really, and I know saying that that the real story is in blockchain is an old phrase, right? It's an old hope at this point, folks joke about it, but it's the first application that I've seen LIGO mainstream that highlights the true opportunity of blockchain for the individual, right? 'cause most enterprise applications at these, you know, Fortune 1000 companies, you know, aren't really comprehendible to the average person on the street. Right? But the idea of a NFT that now I own in the virtual sense, right? I own a portion. I own a share, I own some rights to some other asset and it's on the blockchain. So traceable transparent, can't be hacked and I can prove it to anybody at any time, anywhere. That opportunity is absolutely I think really untapped, but to go back your actual question. Yeah. I mean the NFT's life cycle, it, I think peaked in March, well, first peak was in March, right when we had the, people auction. And, you know, I say March and April was red, hot cooled off over the summer, much like the other crypto assets out there. And then honestly, in the fall. And I believe it was Tom Brady partnering with, I believe the company is FTX, his partnership, I believe it was him, Gronk, and a whole host of other athletes and entertainers, NBA. Top Shot's probably the, the mainstream platform that most the people have heard of in the NFT space. All of that has kind of given the NFT space, sort of a new, burst of energy. So it's hot. It isn't as hot as it had been previously, but it is, I think starting to ratchet back up to those levels.  Mitch: (13:34) Now I am most familiar with NFTs because of, you know, Top Shot, like you just mentioned, and Brady is coming out with all of his, NFTs and all the different people who are joining in on his group, having conversations outside of here and with friends and, you know, offline, I think the challenge is really identifying how is this so much different than like a picture online, essentially, you know? And I had this conversation with a couple people, and I think what you just said, as far as the blockchain technology and tracking everything is really the answer, but at a very simple level, is it the fact that it's exclusive, right? You know, if you have a tangible basketball card versus an NFT, the exclusivity of it is what adds value is that correct?  Sean: (14:20) So, so a good, parallel, right. That I've been trying to use is that if you have a NBA basketball card and it's autographed by who ever your, you know, favorite players, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Shaq, all the rest. Right? And so I have this, this basketball, and it's actually signed by that person, Michael Jordan held the Sharpie and actually signed. Okay. And then on the other hand, I have that exact same basketball. Right. But it has the autograph of Michael Jordan, but it was, you know, burned into the basketball at a factory, which one has more value? It's the, it's the basketball that is, that is actually connected to the entertainer, to the artist, to the creator of that asset. Right. And so if I have a picture, if I have the, Mona Lisa famous painting in the world price with that, I'm no art expert so I don't quite get it personally, but, either way, right. It's a, you know, internationally famous paint thing, priceless why? Right. It's priceless. And it's valuable because it is the only one out there. Right. It's the only real authentic version of it as far as we know, but, I can go online, I can Google it right now on this podcast with you, I can go online, pull a picture of it, print it out, frame it, hang it on the wall that doesn't have any economic value, but an NFT, right, tracing the, the Providence and the history of that artwork or real estate or, athletes merchandise. That's the true economic value there. It is not always the asset itself. It's the connection of the asset to the creator of that asset. Be it artwork, entertainment, real estate, it's that bright line, it's that proof of ownership and Providence, and anybody who's done any work in any supply chain over the last 18 months knows the importance of having control and having traceability in terms of, you know, Providence ownership of that asset on that path. So that's the real difference there, Mitch, is that now I have that direct connection to that basketball hand sign by Michael Jordan, as opposed to buying 85, you know, basketballs online that have his autographs, but it was a copy and paged up at some factor.  Mitch: (17:08) Perfect example. You're absolutely right. It definitely makes sense. So thank you for kind of breaking that down step by step. I think there is so much that goes on in this space and everything is changing so rapidly, you know, it, it's really good to provide updates like this, take a step back, make sure everybody really understands what everybody is talking about before something new comes out. Right. And, you know, I think you are just talking in alignment with NFTs. You mentioned defi, right? So I think it's only appropriate that we kind of stay in line here. Give us a breakdown of defi, why it's so important and what our listeners really need to know.  Sean: (17:47) Mitch, I mean, yeah. We could be here talking on DeFi for eight hours, so probably have a fresh battery. But in terms of like the baseline, right. DeFi, it's an incredibly complicated topic because it's a umbrella term, right. DeFi can actually point to anywhere between 12 and 15 different types of applications, it could be yield farming, staking block rewards, all of which are trying to maximize the, yield earned on crypto holdings, but the overall idea and the goal of any of these applications, right. And there are any number of them online to go into, you know, research learn about rest, but the overall goal here DeFi, decentralized finance, it's to try to really build out a parallel financial system. Right. Because, if we sort of pull back for a minute, the whole goal of blockchain and crypto is to help develop a parallel financial system, right. To cut out intermediaries payment processors banks, that, that hasn't happened as we've seen every major payment processor and bank and corporation, and actively now embrace blockchain, crypto payments all the rest. But the promise of, project DeFi it's really to allow individuals or institutions who are trying to, for lack of a better term exist in a crypto based world. So Mitch, if you have $8,000 cash hanging around, right, you have options could put it into bank, could put it into Apple stock, can buy some CPE courses at the IMA, or can put it into a ETF, right. But you have options. You can either grow it, use it all the rest. But if I have that same $8,000 value in tether, right. the USDT token issued by tether a stablecoin issuer that's supposedly on a one-to-one basis at the US dollar. And I could go on a hold, offshoot on that, but, but it's backed by the US dollar. And so how can I make the best use of that money? Well, the bulk of these DeFi applications out there are built to allow holders and individuals and entrepreneurs for like me who have their business or have holdings in crypto. I can't deposit those at the bank. If I can't use those to go buy Apple stock, I can't put them into a ETF or an IRA directly. So then how do I earn a rate of return on my assets? And that's the question that most of these DeFi applications are trying to answer. And so the best way to understand DeFi is to basically kind of picture it as trying to offer all of the products and services, convenience of a bank or a traditional, brokerage, except not involving a bank or a traditional brokerage. And so that's the best way to try to think about it in terms of enterprise applications, there are not all that many yet for the very reason that the regulation on these companies is kind of still murky and it's primarily been, regulation by lawsuit up until now.  Mitch: (21:35) So we've talked about a lot of different trends going on here, and, you know, a lot of our conversation has been US based and things that are happening within the United States. Just curious, before we wrap up, I have one more follow up question, but as far as the things that are happening in the US, you know, the president's working group, I know there was, the infrastructure bill that's going to include some tax reporting provisions for digital assets, in your opinion, what kind of implications will these decisions have on the global environment, as it pertains to digital assets, you know, clearly digital assets is not just the US based assets. So, what else can the global business environment expect down the road from things happening.  Sean: (22:19) And you highlight a excellent point there, Mitch, that this asset class is not based out of any market. This isn't based out of the US, based out of mainland China, or Europe, or Africa, Latin America, anywhere it's a truly global asset class and global ecosystem. And so on the one hand, I am encouraged that there are policy moves being at least put forward here in the US. On the other hand, I do fear that we are taking a bit of a heavy handed approach to trying to understand, and we're trying to force, crypto assets to fit into the current roles that current financial instrument hold and it could work on the surface, but it is not gonna work going forward. But on the other hand, even though crypto is a truly global industry, it is still worth mentioning that the US is, I believe gonna have a important voice in how these rules and frameworks are ultimately crafted. Now there are countries El Salvador Malta, other areas of the world, Estonia, Brazil, you know, there are any number of other countries that have been more active in being pro crypto out there. So it's important for us to balance our attempts to protect, investors and all the rest with the eye towards future opportunities. But my sort of wrap up point here in terms of the global impacts is that the only other global counterweight at the US level is mainland China. And whether you are a fan of this choice or not their choice on a policy, angle to ban crypto, basically over and over again, to ban trading, to ban mining to ban holding of it. I mean, that does basically open up the door for the US to basically still have a initially dominant voice in this conversation.  Mitch: (24:37) So to wrap things up, kind of in that vein, you, you have obviously done a ton of research on this. This is, you know, your passion and, and highly knowledgeable. I'm curious, you know, talking about the report that came out and some of the, movement that has been made recently, you have an opinion, and I'd just like to kind of wrap things up by asking you where you believe the focus really should be when it comes to digital assets. You know, as far as the progressing this whole industry really forward with all the different trends and all the different outcomes from these different innovations, opportunities, possibilities, what should be, as far as the focus of everybody's efforts, what would make the most sense to bring things to light for everybody who's involved in this industry.  Sean: (25:27) I think that the top two areas that should be top of mind for any policy maker, regulator, or entrepreneur out there in this space on the one, it should try to be the foster innovation and creativity, right? Crypto assets are a $3 trillion asset class, and 10 years ago they hardly existed. So it's grown incredibly fast and, and no asset class grows that quickly on a international basis if there is not some underlying economic value too. Right? So, it's important to foster innovation to try to attract as much capital and people, right. You know, intellectual capital, human capital, financial capital, as we possibly can to these projects because Mitch, you know, it's awfully tempting to, to point to, you know, incidents, right. It could be a hack, it can be the NFT bubble, you know, kind of popping here and there, but overall with blockchain and crypto one don't exist in a bubble, right? They are evolving with and being improved by automation and RPA, AI, and IOT analytics. All of these tools are developing hand in hand. And so I think that overall, everybody should be focused on trying to create a environment and a framework to foster innovation, and to try to allow people the, you know, freedom to develop the experiment and yes, fail sometimes. But it's important to have that creative process happen, to be able to get to the products and services and companies that are gonna benefit the most people going forward. And then two, it's also important that as we are doing this right, so a good parallel that I can do all the right now that's all phase highlight is that as we all know the issues around, our climate and climate change are a big issue right now, I won't get into the individual politics of it, but it's an issue, right? And so there has been a move towards more ESG, towards more investment, towards wind, water, hydro power, all the rest, but all of that can't happen overnight, right? There has to be a transition period off of the coal fossil fuel model and into a more hybrid model, right? Some fossil fuel, nuclear, wind, the water, solar all the rest. And so that has to also happen here, right? Because at a fundamental level, blockchain and crypto assets operate differently in terms of the transactions themselves and the risks and opportunities that all involve counterparties have to keep in mind as they try to move into this space. So there has to be some sort of plan, again, building on 0.1, there has to be a environment and a framework to balance innovation and creativity with this, mindset that, yeah, mean virtual payments, digital they're already here, all that we're doing now, blockchain and crypto is trying to sort of improve them. But there has to be a process to transition, you know, countries, institutions, individuals out of basically the analog world that all of us live in web 2.0 all the rest to a blockchain based crypto, augmented future. And I know that having that can kind of sound high in the sky, but it's already happening right now. Right. And there are trillions at, you know, being put to work here. Every major corporation and country in the world is actively doing this as we speak. So it really isn't so farfetched, I would just hope to see right. That going forward, that there's a more over focus paid to this.  Closing: (29:40) This has been Count Me In, IMA's podcast, providing you with the latest perspectives of thought leaders from the accounting and finance profession.

NFTs for content creators The future is getting here fast, and as creative entrepreneurs, we constantly have to think uniquely, innovatively, and consciously step outside that box. There is no better time than now to start getting your foot inside the door and experience the newer way of doing business with buying and selling non-fungible tokens using cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Let's talk NFTs for Content Creators! Key points covered in this video: ✔️ There's no saying that getting started with #NFTs will make you a success overnight -- but as an artist, designer, photographer, filmmaker, or a creator in general, it pays to look into the opportunity that's making all the buzz in the metaverse! ✔️ In September, we witnessed how Rebecca Minkoff, in partnership with Yahoo, broke new ground in the New York Fashion Week and became the first female American designer to create NFTs for her collection. ✔️ If you're a photographer or know you can take good pictures, why not collaborate with a product line or others influencers? Think differently and strategize how you can create an entire collection of NFTs. ✔️ Take, for example, the graphic designer Mike Winkelmann -- better known as Beeple -- who sold an NFT for a record-breaking $69.3 million. He inspires more artists to take their pieces from the traditional sense to make it to the digital space. ✔️ Get to know the features of OpenSea and how this user-friendly platform will help you create and sell your NFT collection.

Metaverse Marketing

When the American digital artist known as Beeple sold a digital artwork at Christie's Auction House for over $60 million, it became the most expensive NFT ever sold at auction. It was a metaverse moment that crystallized the hype surrounding this new form of digital media. But what exactly is an NFT and why are they so important? NFT stands for non-fungible token and is essentially a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger such as the blockchain. These tokens can be linked to anything from art, texts, video, or even bits of code. So, what does this have to do with the metaverse? In episode 7 of Adweek's Metaverse Marketing podcast, we will explore the rise of non-fungible tokens, how they have impacted the worlds of art, fashion, collectibles, and real estate, their place in the metaverse, and how they can unlock new opportunities to engage with audiences, as well as new revenue streams.

This week on Under the Radar: The art world has been turned on its head this year. Visitor numbers to galleries plummeted as the pandemic forced shops to close their doors. The art world had to shift, kicking off a digital art craze. Back in March, a new record was set when a piece of digital artwork, by the artist Beeple, sold for $69 million dollars. The art was sold as a digital file, called an NFT, which stands for “nonfungible token” — a term that can apply to any digital collectible. Many underrepresented artists who haven't been given broad access to mainstream galleries think that crypto-traded art could be a viable avenue to sell their work. But will this new frontier offer more opportunities than obstacles? Guest: Nettrice Gaskins, Afrofuturist digital artist, assistant director of the Lesley University STEAM Learning Lab, and the author of “Techno-Vernacular Creativity and Innovation: Culturally Relevant Making Inside and Outside of the Classroom.” Her artwork is part of the forthcoming “FUTURES” exhibit at the Smithsonian in November.

Are you thinking about the ways you could use NFTs for your digital agency? After working in nine agencies, Kent Lewis decided to start Anvil Media in 2000, which is nowadays one of the oldest search engine marketing agencies in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in analytics, SEO, paid media, and organic social media strategy. Last year, during the NFT boom, Kent wrote a not so serious press release about this phenomenon and got the attention of companies wanted to learn how to use these one-of-a-kind digital assets. Just like that, he got into the NFT world and is developing some projects around them. Today he joins Jason to talk about what are NFTs, how some companies started using them, the possibilities to further develop their potential, and how can digital agencies get in on the action too. 3 Golden Nuggets What are NFTs? There's been a lot of talk about non-fungible tokens since their boom last year. In essence, it is is a unit of data stored on a blockchain that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. We've seen sold for hundreds of thousands, but how can companies use them? Some early adopters saw success from selling digital items to create brand awareness (Pizza Hut selling digital pizzas, Pringles selling a golden chip). But there's still much room to continue innovating. How brands are using them. If the first step was brand engagement the future of NFTs for companies includes brand engagement and brand perception management. In this post-pandemic world of much more remote work and remote communication, it makes sense to add digital products to your offerings. The future of NFTs includes its gamification, meaning tokens, rewards, exclusive access, and more. How can agencies get in on the action? As we've seen, agencies can help their clients jump on the NFT trend to create brand awareness and engagement. But some agencies are themselves starting to use NFTs. Access to exclusive rewards is a good way to create interest in your brand. Some agencies are starting to do this by the tokenization of their time. For example, someone that gets a good deal on one of your agency's tokens could get a good deal for an hour of your time. Kent also recommends paying close attention to how Gary Vaynerchuk is innovating with NFTs.

Jason Swenk here and have another amazing guest for you. We're going to talk about how your agency can use NFTs. That's right. And we're going to tell his story and so you can do that. So let's go ahead and jump into the episode. Hey, Ken. Welcome to the show. Kent: [00:00:25] Pleasure to be here. Thanks for having me. Jason: [00:00:27] Yeah, man. I'm excited to have you on. So tell us who are you and what do you do? Kent: [00:00:32] So my name is Kent Lewis. I am based in Portland, Oregon since 95, you know, marketing PR background. But in 96, I got involved in the internet, started optimizing websites before Google was a thing. And I've been a part of nine agencies, founded two, co-founded two. But when I was fired the second time from an agency that I was a key manager in, I decided I'm probably unemployable. Better do my own thing. So started out in 2000 with Anvil Media, as a consultancy and started bringing in employees in 03. And have been active and keeping it a relatively boutique-sized digital marketing agency since then. And when I'm not doing the agency thing, you know, I'm trying to get outside. That's the great thing about Portland, we're an hour and a half from the ocean, from the mountains from rivers, you name it. Jason: [00:01:20] Awesome, so are you a fly fisherman? Kent: [00:01:23] My first ever fly fishing experience was on the Deschutes River in Central Oregon, about three months ago. Gal, one of my friends, she gave me the rod and said Kent, and one just keep throwing it. And I caught a least solid three and a half-inch steelhead. So I didn't eat it. It was probably good for a pizza. And I guess you could say I was maybe hooked. So I think I might try more of that later, but I'm mostly like bike cycling, snowboarding, skiing, kind of guy. Jason: [00:01:50] Very cool. We'll get along very well. That's, that's all me. That's why I live in the mountains. But, um, we're not here to talk about the mountains. Let's talk about… I'm curious, because I've been fired from almost every job. Why were you fired from that one agency? Kent: [00:02:05] Well, so the first time I was fired was an agency I co-founded in 99. And by fall of 2000 we had a disagreement about equity and our role. There were two junior folks. I was like 25, 26 at the time. And there was the founder who used his 401k to fund it and we helped grow it to three and a half million, 35 people in less than two years. But, you know, we had gone in… much as I should ran of myself, my other young partner who ran the PR side and I ran the internet side. She was like I'm going in to get more equity. Are you in? I was like, I guess, yeah, because I helped build this thing. And he was offended by that and instead of firing just her he fired both of us. And by the next week, uh, October, 2000, I created Anvil as a, as a placeholder. Interestingly, the name Anvil Media comes from an easy I'd been running for four years. I thought I'll just sell the easy for a million dollars and retire. It's still archived at @anvil-media.com, but I haven't touched it since 06. Not worth a dime now, but that team that I left in late 2000 was acquired by another agency. And then my boss, who was my mentor and, you know, it was tragic to me that we had a falling out. He died of a massive heart attack at 42. So they needed somebody to run my own team. So this old school agency asked me to take my team back over and I tripled revenue. Then, in the end, my girlfriend decided the Creative Director was more interesting than I was, even though he was married. And since he was on the board and had been there 20 years, he had a little more juice than I did and canned my ass. And then I decided I better do my own thing. So it was about a girl the second time. Actually, it was about a girl both times. The other was my business partner and she was very amazing and also made a lot of bag mistakes. And I got lumped in when she and I united. So there's a whole book there somewhere when I have the time, but it was never about my performance. It was never about my abilities. It was always about bad judgment. I'm not innocent in it so much as I picked the wrong horses. Jason: [00:03:56] Yeah, gotcha. I do want to get to how you tripled revenue later on, but I do want to get into the NFTs. So explain for some people that have… I mean, if you've been living under a rock, what an NFT is and then how can agencies use NFTs to really benefit their agency? Kent: [00:04:15] Yeah. So it's actually a great story, but I'll just answer your question directly. If we have time, I'll go into the backstory because it exemplifies the timing in my career. Um, I'm not that smart. I'm just tall male with a short name and I'm not unattractive. And I think that's been as much of my success as hard work and smarts. So NFTs. So I'd been reading about, you know, what Pizza Hut and Pringles and all these brands were messing around doing these little PR stunts, basically. Creating these little non-fungible tokens, being their little digital assets that you can own. And, you know, buy, sell, trade. And because they're probably of blockchain, you can have a whole history of that item. So brand we'll get into, you know, why it matters to marketers. But to back then, we're talking March, 2021. I was like, this seems like second life. You remember second life, the virtual world. I was consulting with HP on that like however many, 14 years ago. And I realized for the first time in career, I could be one word ahead or one sentence ahead in the book. I didn't have to write the book. I didn't have to write the chapter, I just needed to spend a little more time on it and think about it just another 30 minutes longer than my client, and then help guide them through how to create a second life experience. Same thing with, uh, it's all over again, right? The world repeats. It's a spiral and a circle, historically speaking, even in tech. I read about these non fungible tokens. You create this asset, like these virtual tacos or virtual pizzas, like Pizza Hut or these Pringle gold chips. And then people get excited because you're an early adopter, even if there's a fairly worthless asset. But it wasn't because people were reselling these on the secondary market. They got them for free and they were selling them for 10, 20, $30,000. And I was like, this sounds a lot like Bitcoin for brands. And so I wrote a press release April 1st, as I've been doing the last 15, 18 years. I write a fake press release on April every year, and this one was about NFTs and, you know, NFTs, you might know as most famous things, digital watches from Jacobson and Company or digital sneakers. And so I took the idea of a digital sneaker because we're in the backyard of Adidas America and of course, Nike and I said that these other agencies are building digital sneakers. We're 10 steps ahead where building virtual shoe boxes to story of virtual sneakers to put in a virtual closet and a virtual house that we build you just to store your digital sneakers. Just totally full of it, right? Totally riffing off of a core concept. And low and behold, a very large social media platform with a blue logo reached out to me and said, hey, we need help. We've got… We're getting a virtual sneaker build for one of their communities. And we can, would, they could tell that we're very serious about it by reading that press release. So they didn't read the press release that closely, bless their hearts. And that led to another conversation. So basically what I did is I would hopped back a second and I was like, shoot, if they're serious, then I'm serious. So I read up on it. I wrote an article that's on a website called thinknorthwest.org. It's a big ad networks for the West Coast, Portland, San Francisco. Uh, about what is NFT and why does it matter? And we can talk more about that in a second, but in the end I've been talking to three large brands, including a sneaker brand about how to use NFTs. Including one of the brands that's a big technology company with a black and white logo that basically is trying to use it for B2B. How do you get into the tech community? And can we use NFTs to incentivize behaviors for deep tech clientele. Even the OEM channel reseller channel, very complicated, convoluted, not theoretically as sexy. And I love the challenge. So I'm talking with them in an hour, then try and see if we can finalize a project. So long story short, we took this, what was a press release joke into a reality of an offering to clients. And we're having these multiple discussions with larger brands. So in the past, I've evangelized mobile marketing, video marketing, podcasting, voice search, Amazon marketing. And I evangelize it as a, with my PR background, speak about it, write about it, and then develop through my articles, a concept or a structure for a service, and then sell that service. I've done that for most of my career. And the NFT happened to start out as a joke, skeptical, healthy skepticism, that it was really something. As I did the research, I realized it's extremely powerful. Because it solves… NFTs, non-fungible tokens, unlike Bitcoin, where if there's equal value, one Bitcoin equals one bitcoin. I own one, you own one. It's the same value. And a non-fungible is a one-off item that you can pay me for with Bitcoin, but it's non-replicable. Non-scalable. And so the idea is you're, you're owning an asset for something. And that's why you can say that's 30 grand to own this. Or the meme of the fire girl, the little girl with the blazing fire out of her house. And she's staring at the camera and they sold… That gal, now that she's going into college, sold it for half a million dollars and helped fund college and gave some to charity. Just for some rich person to own the digital rights to that, right? Beeple's $69 million collage. Um, he's arguably not a good artist, but he's a first-mover developed a lot of credibility in the space and had enough of a following that some very wealthy art collector, using the term loosely, decided to get a bidding war and spend crazy money. But how does that relate to brands? So there's a couple things to keep in mind for NFTs. And that is there's, because it's blockchain, it's trackable, defensible. There's no fraud, theft, or manipulation possible with an NFT, you can create as many copies as you want. You can sell them, you can give them away. But it allows… In the end, it allows for a few different things for brands. One is just general awareness. So the things that you've seen in the, in the press related to these predominantly quick-service restaurants or manufacturers and retail, lifestyle brands, Pringles, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut… Charmin has an NFT-P as in "TP." So they're just creating brand awareness. And if you like the brand, you might love them for that, if you're technologically savvy. But what I think is the next phase, because that's really what's happening in the last year. What's happening in the next year is brand engagement brand perception management. So luxury brands are getting into it. Hoochie, Jacob & Co., like I said, Jacobs & Co. are obviously a very expensive watch brand and sold an NFT watch for $100,000. Again, fairly worthless other than to the buyer, right? So brand engagement. Uh, what I think is really the secret sauce is, and this is where it gets into the B2B world, where it can apply is in the engagement for the customer. And customer retention is using it for gamification and incentives. So tokens, loyalty reward programs, earn certain tokens. Those tokens can be exchanged for things, art, music, whatever. And so it's just a clever way to up your ante and see, be seen as a forward-looking brand or an agency that creates this stuff for clients. Because a lot of like the top shot, NBA, virtual trading cards of the top 10, most expensive trading cards of all time up there with Honus Wagner is the Dallas Maverick, right? And his car traded for almost $3 million and it's a digital card. But in my backyard, Damian Lillard with the Portland trailblazers, he's added special access to groups, discussion groups, VIP access to certain events, or just access to him. So you're getting, you're paying a premium, but you're getting something that's very exclusive. That's really what NFTs are about right now, or now is exclusivity. I think also that the next phase, which will be one plus years out would be the product extensions. Agencies helping brands create products that are natural extension of their current offerings, especially in a post pandemic world. There's a lot more of this remote work, remote communication. So creating products that are more digital and interactive, it's particularly interesting right now. And then the last component would be the tokenization of time. So as an agency, you could tokenize your time where it can be bought and sold on the secondary market. Why people might do that? Hard to say. But, uh, there's a Reuben Bramanathan who's with IDEO CoLab Ventures. He's tokenized his time. And one token is equal to one hour of his time and the guy might trade his time. He might, I might have to pay him 500 or a thousand dollars. But if I get a good deal on a token, I might save a ton of money more than likely to pay right now, paying more for a token than it's worth. And then relate to that is just creating that digital ecosystem. So when I mentioned second life, there's a new version of that. And that is, there are many of them actually, but one of them is popular. It's called Superworld, where you can own the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel tower in a virtual recreation of the world, the planet. Using satellite imagery, you could add things into that world. You can develop things like second life, but mainly if you want to say I own the Eiffel tower, you can go in Superworld and buy it. If it's not already been purchased since I last looked. The Great Wall, Taj Mahal, etcetera. Those are just some of the ways a brands are using it today. One that I glossed over that's product extension. A good example is gaming. So you've got Ubisoft has a game called Rabbits. F1 has Delta time. So what, what F1 has done well with their reality show on I think Netflix. And then this, uh, F1, uh, Delta time NFT assets related to kind of gamification of F1 is they're extending out what is a very elite wealthy following. Most people don't fly to Monaco to watch the race from a yacht, but there are other ways to interact with the brand. And F1 has mastered that. Uh, and then even Microsoft has a fairly ghetto Minecraft-like game called Azure Space Mystery. That is, um, kind of remedial, but it has, it's in the NFT world. So, um, how that relates is Fortnight, if it stays relevant for another year or two, or other games like it, you could buy and sell armor and weapons and other customizations. That's one way you can buy, sell, and trade your gear within the games would be through NFTs because of the trackability that you need to do the anti-fraud protection. And then brands can obviously create assets and then know that they've protected that asset through NFT. Jason: [00:14:41] When you're an agency partner with Wix, you unlock an entire digital ecosystem for creating, managing, and growing your agency. Get the full coding and design freedom to create anything your clients need, along with the tools to manage and collaborate with your team seamlessly from anywhere. And when it comes to growing your agency, you can get matched with new leads every day and earn revenue share for every website you guys create. They're backed by the Wix industry, leading security and site performance. You'll also have a dedicated account manager on standby 24/7. So you can reach your goals and start setting new. See for yourself, head over to wix.com/partners. And re-imagine what your agency can accomplish. Now my head's spinning, which I… with ideas. And I mean, it's just to comprehend all of this is a, a little overwhelming figuring out. But that's, it's really pretty fascinating that's where a lot of the world is actually going. And, uh, those are some great examples, you know, from F1, Microsoft, and even how some of the agencies are selling their time for NFTs. It's crazy. Kent: [00:16:02] Yeah. For now it is and it will settle down. It's, it's more profound, you know, Gary Vaynerchuk has doubled down. So if you want to figure out how does an agency monetize NFTs just look at what Gary Vaynerchuk has done with NFTs. And I've had the luxury to seen him speak twice. And I thought he was just a grade-A douche bag and nothing better. And he's far more than. In fact, I firmly believed that it's, his, his character his act and he really has a huge heart and does a lot of good things. You just wouldn't know it because he has a potty mouth, which I have no problem with. And, uh, just the way he kind of yells and preaches at people. But he has a lot of good things. I never disagree that he's a smart guy and he's on point, but he's doubling down on NFTs in ways that make me look like a troglodyte. Like I'm, you know, like, I don't get it. And he's built a whole marketplace and a bunch of assets and that's cool. Cause he can do that. Cause you know, he shouldn't even be working anymore, but he's never going to stop. So look at what he's done. If you want to see what a true agency pioneer that started out just as a small wine dealer has done, it's pretty remarkable. Jason: [00:17:00] Give us one example of what you really liked that he's doing in his agency using NFTs. Kent: [00:17:06] Well, I like that he's giving back. So with his NFT agency and I, we're going to apply cause we're doing an NFT mural fundraiser here in Portland, in September. But we can apply once we build the NFT and what do you call mint it, then we can apply. If we put it on the right, uh, marketplace and use the right technology, he can use some of the proceeds and resources he's developed with his NFT company. You know, like it basically an NFT agency to help you build something better, especially if it is for a nonprofit or cause-driven social responsibility sort of thing. And, and you can get some horsepower. So he's already built giving back into his model, which I really appreciate and admire. Look at what he's doing there. So he's not just riding the money train, he's pivoting that to provide opportunities to do social good in the process. Jason: [00:17:55] Awesome. Well, this is been very educational and, uh, and really pretty cool to listen to. What's the website people can go and, uh, check the agency out? Kent: [00:18:04] Uh, you can go to anvilmediainc.com or just Google Anvil Media. You'll find me with Anvil, Portland, anvil, Kent Lewis, whatever. And then if you just Google Kent, Kent Lewis NFT, or just go to thinknorthwest.org and their blog, you'll find my article, NFT Marketing: How brands can use NFTs to engage consumers and generate revenue. I think that's a great read. And then just also look at what Gary Vaynerchuk and NFTs looked that up and news and, um, Google search generally, and you'll find a lot of great information. Jason: [00:18:36] awesome logo. Everyone go check that out and thanks so much, Kent, for coming on the show. If you guys liked this episode, make sure you guys subscribe. Also, if you want to be around other agency owners who are on the cutting edge and they're sharing the stuff that's working and be able to see the things that you might not be able to see.

This episode was originally published on May 11, 2021 as Episode 125.  When the artist Beeple recently sold a digital work of art for $69 million, it caught the world's attention especially because that one-of-a-kind digital art was a non-fungible token (NFT). In this episode, we're taking a look at this emerging blockchain technology and exploring how NFTs are transforming digital artwork. We're also discussing the legal ramifications of this new type of ownership. Joining me for this conversation is Jim Gatto. Jim is a partner in the Intellectual Property Practice Group in Sheppard Mullin's Washington, D.C. office. He is also Team Leader of the firm's Blockchain Technology and Digital Assets team, and its Social Media and Games industry team. He also is Team Leader of the firm's Open Source team. What We Discussed in This Episode: What are non-fungible tokens? What makes a token “non-fungible”? Given the ease of duplication, what makes NFT's so valuable? How might the use of NFT's benefit performance artists? Will NFT's ever become simple enough for everyday people to utilize them? After someone creates an NFT, where are some of the online marketplaces they can list and market it on? Are private investors moving into this space? How can NFTs be used with physical objects?
