With anybody and everybody who is somebody creating No Fungible Tokens (NFTs), 2021 is shaping up to be the year of the NFT.

Interview With Lushsux

Lushsux talks about his crypto journey, what NFTs mean for the art world and, well, the half a mill he’s already made. 

CJ: So, could you tell us how you got started making NFTs?

CJ: That may have been underselling yourself.

CJ: What do you mean by lucky?

CJ: Part of your deal as a street artist is anonymity. Did you feel like you saw a crossover there with the anonymous elements of the crypto world?

CJ: Which, in your case, is around half-a-million bucks. Does it weird you out that people can see exactly how much your art is selling for?

CJ: And you get a cut every time one of your pieces is sold on, right?

CJ: The NFT market feels pretty frothy right now. Is it sustainable?

CJ: So, what’s coming up for you in the NFT space?
