Would you say that the NFT space suits certain creative disciplines over others?
NFTs have made digital art collectible for the first time ever. Therefore, artists who work in digital mediums like animation or 3D sculpture are seeing the most significant benefits. However, everyone can get involved in the NFT world – and right now, there is no shortage of roles that need to be filled. It's an entirely new ecosystem, which needs everyone from builders and marketers to strategists and lawyers. You will see creators, curators and engineers most commonly, but there are also community leads, project managers, and influencer coordinators.
There’s also a common misconception that you need to be tech-savvy to make NFTs. That’s what Voice set out to change. On many platforms, you need to set up a crypto wallet, get some cryptocurrency, and connect your wallet to begin minting and collecting. With Voice, you can make an account just using an email address, and experiment by minting NFTs for free, so that you’re not investing money upfront.
Do you think there’s a way to participate in the NFT space without negatively impacting the environment?
Headlines often get shortened to “NFTs = bad for the environment.” But it’s not the NFTs, it’s the blockchain they are minted on that can be good or bad for the environment. So the environmental impact is directly related to which blockchain you’re using. Voice, for example, offers carbon-neutral NFTs, because our chain is inherently environmentally friendly.
