[00:52:26] What persuaded you to make the jump into blockchain?

[00:58:05] What were your personal struggles with blockchain?

[01:04:48] What are crypto artists struggling with?

“I can personally say that in the year-and-a-half I’ve been doing crypto art, it’s been like, the most lucrative market that I’ve been selling in. I’ve had more success selling art as a crypto artist than as a fine artist selling prints on a digital store. I mean, I guess, I don’t want to speculate too much, but I just think there’s a great market for it and there’s a lot of people with cryptocurrency that want to buy stuff.” ~jrdsctt [01:07:50]

[01:07:17] What are the joys & benefits that you & the crypto art community have experienced?

“ … there’s such a great community around crypto art. There are so many people that are willing to help that you just have to not be afraid to ask questions.” [01:12:47]

[01:12:44] What’s your advice to new artists thinking about exploring blockchain / the crypto art world?

“… if you’re a new company … establish a strong sense of communication between the users and the developers … especially if you’re a startup, your users are going to help shape what your company becomes. And it might not seem as important but it feels important being on the other side.” ~ jrdsctt [1:18:51]

[01:15:35] What can blockchain developers do to create a better blockchain experience?

“I made a decision a very long time ago to brand myself, and it’s kind of paid off. If you just Google “jrdsctt”, everything about me will pop up.” ~ jrdsctt [1:21:05]

[01:19:32] The “bridges” are important.

Pastry-loving stan of the NFT crypto art and music space, and your self-appointed stylist. I am not funny.
