NFTs represent so much more than just a digital file. NFTs are a vehicle to decentralization and independence for creators around the globe. NFTs are an access point to build thriving communities around the things we’re passionately engaged in everyday.
NFTs are OUR future. Let’s take this journey together and see where we land.
Below are the types of NFTs I offer and what each one provides access to. Keep in mind that we’re at the beginning of this journey and I fully expect that these offerings will evolve with the community as needs and desires from members arise. Eventually, I see this community evolving into a Documentary DAO that supports and celebrates the work of visual story
An art NFT is just that, the NFT you purchase from OpenSea, Foundation or another platform from the Ethereum blockchain. Each art NFT is different and will clearly state the perks associate with purchase. All of my collectors will have special access to the Collectors Discord channel and your access token will be airdropped manually to the ETH address used to purchase the art. Easy-peasy!
- Collector tokens will represent a specific collection and each NFT art holder will have a collector token manually sent to their ETH address after the initial, original purchase. Collector’s tokens are deployed through Unlock Protocol and are on the Polygon chain.
- Each NFT artwork in a collection will have a corresponding collectors NFT token. No additional collectors tokens will be created, so the value of those collectors tokens will appreciate over time as they are a scarce token. Secondary NFT art sales WILL NOT generate a collectors token.
- Tokens will give access to a private Discord— just for community, questions, early drop access and engagement.
- Bonus NFTs airdropped to collector token holders.
- IRL ticket access for gallery openings, meetups, etc.
- Special access to live QAs, virtual events, etc.
- Voting rights for documentary projects in production or other decentralized community engagement opportunities.
- The ability to sell your collectors token as prices raise from the rare aspect of the token itself.
- Collectors can sell NFT art on the secondary market and still retain their collectors token as a visual representation of the art they’ve supported over time.
- Collectors can also pass their collector tokens to multiple generations of family members and loved ones as an inheritance since each token has a 100 year expiration.
- Supporter’s Tokens will be created for collections, will have special supporter’s artwork as the NFT.
- Supporter’s Tokens will also provide special access to a private Discord, live QA group events for supporters only- to create conversations around being an NFT artist.
- Future voting rights for any community project voting or potential documentary DAO that may evolve over time.
- Special Supporter’s Only events— virtual or IRL– for working NFT artists and supporting collectors.
- Cool perks I haven’t thought of yet but will evolve with the community and the technology itself.
- These tokens will be created soon and will be available for purchase using MATIC or credit card through Unlock Protocol.
We’re living through the “tokenization of culture” era and I want to provide a special gift of gratitude to the people who support my artwork— through the collection or sharing of my photographs. My goal is to create a space that allows this token community to grow and evolve with the technology itself.
Technology is moving so fast that we really have no idea how we all may be communicating or engaging with one another and the platforms where our work lives in a matter of years. Or even months.
By deploying Unlock Protocol NFTs as utility tokens on the Polygon network, collectors will receive another piece of unique art, available only to NFT holders of my work. But this token is more than just a piece of artwork, the token is a point of access for all token holders that has a 100 year lifespan. The token will provide a handful of existing benefits and will allow me to provide additional perks to token holders that don’t even exist yet.
Ready to Join?
It’s simple. Just purchase one of my NFT artworks on the following platforms and I’ll manually send you a Collector’s token. I’ll also have the Supporters Tokens available for purchase soon!
