🎤 Founder Feedback
Me and the community I surround myself with are the ones that are building instead of just looking for a way to get rich quick or to get famous. I'd like to demonstrate that, although it was a hard year for everyone in crypto economically, a lot of things are evolving very quickly like with AI, ChatGPT, and other tools that one way or another are connected with the NFT and blockchain revolution. I want people to see that growth, instead of becoming collectively mired in negative thoughts.Itzel Yard aka Ix Shells
