This will be a relatively shorter thread. I do not claim to be an expert on this topic, but there are more projects and more people in DMs on this topic, so wanted to share some initial thoughts
2/ This thread is not directed at established NFT or offchain photographers.
They are fine, going to have massive audiences and distribution and will do very well.
This is for those trying to get established.
3/ Let's start with the general concept that NFTs and their ecosystem (OpenSea, Foundation, SuperRare) give photographers (as with all artists) a vastly vastly better distribution and demand aggregation system.
1/ OK, the Seize The Memes of Production contest winners have been picked. My algorithm was going down the list in chronological order, seeing if I laughed and seeing if I thought the person likely owned the copyright
2/ I am going to post each winner in the thread below. If you are the artist, please confirm in reply that: a) it is your work, b) you release under CC0) and c) your ETH address and 0.10ETH is coming your way.
2/ Within 24 hours, cartoon characters online (@loomdart, me) started pummeling team/hodlers on twitter for not having already figured out the correct platform strategy (100% open) that Microsoft took 20 years figure out.
Like your day 1 team meeting with maniacs crashing it
3/ Building an NFT Primitive protocol in public is like being thrown into the deepest end of the pool with sharks all around you on the first day at the office.
I think team and community is doing much better today.
Less focus on DAOs/governance, more focus on shipping
6529 will pay 0.05ETH to best 20 "Seize The Memes of Production" memes in the replies
Memes can include or not 6529 as per your artistic judgement. No bonus or demerit.
The goal is to start arming ourselves w/memetic weapons
1) 6529 is the judge 2) Contest ends in 24 hours or later if 6529 is still having fun 3) Only original art that you made and own copyright to - copy pasting google images is not allowed 4) Nothing mean to others in imagery or replies
If you win and are paid, you will release the NFT under creative commons 0 so anyone* can do whatever they want with it
*However, if 6529 ever mints it, 6529 will split the mint proceeds w/ you 50:50 & recommends that others do the same.
