🎤 Founder Feedback
I still believe in NFTs potential to change the way we think about and interact with art. However, in the current landscape, there are too many unhealthy dynamics and too much emphasis on sales and gimmicks. This is not the kind of art culture that I want to be a part of.DotPigeon
