Stanley: 'If You're A Trader, It's Time to Go'
Artist Pablo Stanley defended his work with the NFT project Humankind to members of the Robotos Discord this week, saying he's going to "keep creating" and working on independent projects "every three months."
"The point is creating. The act of creating for me is what's important. I understand that for a trader this is hard to understand, you see everything in a scarcity mentality," Stanley said in a Discord reply to a now-deleted user. "But, for a maker, if it was for me, I would do more and more to infinity. For me, there's room for everyone, for more art, for more creations, for more people. I have an abundance mentality."
Several users rushed to defend Stanley, who has been working on the Robotos animated children's show, which is currently in production.
Some were critical of Stanley and his new project, though a bulk of Stanley's replies seem to be to deleted users, some of which had been banned.
Robotos holders can mint two Humankind NFTs for a price of 0.09 ETH on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 1:18 p.m. ET during an "oversubscribed" allowlist. The early access list minting opened today and the floor price is just a bit higher than the mint price — 0.098 ETH — 0.01 ETH higher than Robotos floor price.
"I don't want traders here. We need collectors," said Stanley in the Discord. "If you're a trader, it's time to go."
