Pictures of Apes

Season #1 Episode #4

Why are people willing to pay so much for digital art? What role do communities play in the NFT space? How can you get started with NFTs?

In 2021, NFTs broke into the mainstream, and you can hear the term everywhere from critics and supporters alike. But what are they? And why do people pay millions for images someone else can right-click and save?

Today we’re joined by Tara Fung, Co-Founder and CEO of Co:Create, a new protocol that unlocks the potential of NFT communities and ecosystems. Coming from a FinTech background, Tara’s interest in crypto started when she saw the value created in alternative investments. After going down the blockchain rabbit hole, Tara recognized the massive potential that NFTs held for changing the future of brands, communities, and ownership.

In this episode, Tara shares what makes NFTs valuable, how NFTs can change the way we do everything, how Co:Create helps NFT projects and owners to go beyond the drop, why NFTs are so much more than art and PFPs, what to think about before investing in an NFT, and more.
