Tune into the Art From Future Podcast 👽👽👽
Gm Station is a community-driven podcast where artists, collectors, developers, curators, and newbies discuss about the benefits of Web3 in the art world.
We are learning Web3 together
We are building the NextGen peer-to-peer decenralized artistic community breaking silos between the very restricted art world and new generations. From setting up a crypto wallet to learning the basics of generative art, we are helping each other navigate and succeed in the NFT space. Only a few visual artists from the traditional art world are introduced to the benefits of WEB3. The majority struggled to make a living in the traditional art industry because they were dependant on intermediaries. Let's not make the same mistakes!
We are building in Web3 together
WEB3 is giving back the power to creators. But to find success in this digital space, artists need to master different skills and techniques such as marketing, community management and learning how to use different web3 services. It can be intimidating for many. Therefore, educating artists and giving them the tools they need to succeed in the space should be at the top of our priorities. The best way to learn is to be in the action. That's why we learn together while building decentralized art events in the Metaverse and IRL.
What is an NFT?
It stands for non-fungible token. An NFT is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on the blockchain.
To make it simple, NFTs are digital certificates of authenticity. They can be linked with digital files (photos, videos etc…).
For example, if we use the Bitcoin network. One Bitcoin can be exchanged with any other Bitcoin. They are equal to one another. Whereas NFTs are unique and therefore cannot be exchanged with one another.
What is the blockchain?
The blockchain is a peer-to-peer transparent and decentralized public ledger where transactions are recorded and organised in blocks which are then linked together using cryptography.
What are examples of NFTs?
And much more
What is gas fee?
It’s the amount of energy required to make a transaction on the blockchain. It needs to be paid.
Benefits of using NFTs?
→ for artists: it's easier to sell digital art. Also artists can get automatic royalties when their artwork is resold.
→ for collectors: they get exclusive ownership and the verification of ownership that comes with the NFTs.
