Last week's episode marked the 20th Podcast Episode. I’ve been lucky to discuss art and blockchain with some of the space's brightest artists, founders, and curators.
To celebrate this milestone, I wrote down my main takeaway from each of the episodes:
1. Jordan Lyall - Founder & Collector
Everyone can create value in the space (not only artists). This is even more critical during crypto winters.
2. FAR - Artist
Every artist’s path is unique as they navigate different interests, professions, and experiences.
3. ClownVamp - Artist & Collector
AI art is about storytelling and not about technicalities.
4. Seth Goldstein - Founder & Collector
Bright Moment’s success came from fostering communities.
5. Maria Paula - Founder & Curator
Blockchain and crypto culture are essential, and we need to preserve them.
6. Mitchell F. Chan - Artist
The blockchain opens the doors for new mechanics and experiences in art, including games.
7. Ciphrd - Founder & Artist
Big things have small beginnings.
8. Sasha Stiles - Artist & Founder
Sasha has a bold, profound, and revolutionary artistic vision.
9. Casey Reas - Artist & Founder
Delegate more. It has played a vital role in Casey's success as an artist, founder, and curator.

10. Agoria - Artist & DJ
Follow your passion, even if the world is against you.
11. Ivona Tau - Artist
AI is a very vague and ambiguous term. AI is patterns taken from data.
12. Artnome - Founder & Collector
Embracing the nonpopular and less traditional path has been Artnome’s mantra.
13. Aleksandra Art - Curator & Artist
Fundamental rules taught in art business schools don’t translate to the blockchain art space.
14. Laurence Fuller - Artist & Collector
The best way to approach someone you admire is to focus on their passions, not what they are known for.
15. Alejandro Cartagena - Artist & Founder
Outstanding photography projects can take years in the making.
16. Micol - Founder & Curator
Artists should worry more about expanding their audience than selling out today’s release.
17. Valerie Whitacre - Art Professional
We are in an art movement, not a political movement.
18. Elena Zavelev - Curator & Educator
Traditional galleries focus on one-to-one relations, while digital galleries focus on one-to-many.
19. Anika Meier - Curator & Founder
Anika never wanted to be a curator but always wanted to be a writer. Being a writer is essential to succeed in many fields, especially art curation.
20. Ryan Bell - Artist
Being early to new technologies, platforms, and trends can help artists extend their audience.
Ryan’s episode is now on YouTube. Tune in to learn Ryan’s generative art journey, the story behind his most popular collections, and his take on the current state of the generative art space.
