Remember: the changes we make to technology are not so vital as the changes we make to the human heart. Artists deserve a culture that protects their right to participate in their own success. It's only fair. Co-opters be damned, we go forward — not backwards. ♂️ #cryptoart

1. A unique masterpiece created by an artist after a life's dedication to growing their practice.
2. PFP created by team of marketers, paying a Fiverr ￠s on the $ for 10K "layer swap" jpegs.

Two short years ago, royalties were NOT so solid & beloved as they ARE today. In fact, few platforms offered them at all, & SuperRare had dropped them from 10% to 3% with barely a whisper. No one seemed to care. But together a group of artists united to speak as one. #cryptoart pic.twitter.com/l3qM9I0oqz

I've always viewed our achievement in March 2020 on a cultural level, not on a blockchain level. This is a human issue. As a human culture, we reached a consensus that we care about artists participating in their own success. That concern has amplified and spread. #cryptoart https://t.co/S5WOqALOyr
