☄ ️SuperRare Perkins on Vulture

Please take some time this weekend to check out this amazing article by Matthew Schneier on Vulture, where SR Perkins talks about the CryptoArt Boom — Dispatches From the NFT Art Boom, The artists, collectors, and sellers betting big on the blockchain.

Traditionally, artists have been trained to depend on the gallery system to gain notoriety or to promote our careers, but on a platform like SuperRare, you can reach the collectors directly and create an immediate relationship.

💥 SuperRare Mention on CNBC

We are honored to be mentioned in CNBC’s write up on the NFT sales this quarter. We were excited to learn that there were nearly 150,000 active wallets in the first quarter — more than 1.5 times the number from a year ago! The future of CryptoArt is here!

Despite the recent price drops from the February highs, NonFungible.com said the average price of NFTs “increased significantly” during the quarter, with a work of art on SuperRare selling for an average of $1,231 in the fourth quarter, and $6,585 in the first quarter on the secondary market.
