Yea working on it.

Definitely the goal is to work with Blockchain more next year. Already started all that jazz. Programmer is working on it. It will be different then Nifty Gateway and other sites just because looking into it more, there is a lot of obstacles that aren't really the best for BNG specifically but yea we are on it. I think about it a lot each day.
When do ya sleep tho?

It's going to be different. Once we implement it, Ill go over why we went this route. I can even respond more to some of the negative leaning comments after researching the project more with our programmer.

Ha, what did you buy? I ended up grabbing a few over the last week. Slippery slope!

Also, the release on Nifty tonight actually comes with a hardcover book that ships in April - you need to have the NFT when shipping starts to claim it. The possibilities really are freakin endless in this space.

I blew my wad on a Pak. :lol:

The thought behind it was intriguing and wanted to see how it all panned out.

Endless is an understatement. :D

I will still always be old school. I like seeing and holding art on my walls and in my house.

Should have grabbed a beeple limited. At least it was a digital print in something tangible. I mean it came with its own signed digital screen and some beeple hair! :o :facepalm:

If there's any grunt work you'd need help with - would love to lend a hand free of charge. Once the artwork itself is worked out, a virtual gallery on a decentralized platform such as decentraland would be really awesome.

If anyone is interested in some of the mechanics - ethItem is a great open-source protocol for NFTs. Creators are brilliant and very passionate.

No need to save them anywhere - they will be on the blockchain :)
