🔥 New York Times Mentions

Take some time this weekend to check out this amazing article by the New York Times, The Untold Story of the NFT Boom, featuring quotes from our very own John Crain and Zack Yanger, as well as several killer SR artists!

As recently as last year, cryptoart was a subcultural vanguard, maybe even a school of sorts, in which the aesthetic of the work being sold (love it or hate it) was in dialogue with the unusual method of selling it. And it was SuperRare and a handful of other sites that created the market, gradually persuading the mostly young, highly online cryptocurrency millionaires to open their virtual wallets and lay out huge sums for digital tokens.

Huge thank you to Albert-Laszlo Barabasi for writing this amazing piece in the Times revealing the beautifully executed patterns of ownership for NFT-based creations, and for using SuperRare for the analysis! The Art Market Often Works in Secret. Here’s a Look Inside.

💥 Jerry Garcia X SuperRare
