With the rise of the NFT marketplace, much attention has gone to the new digital assets being auctioned and sold, whilst little credit has come to the creators behind it.
Well, that’s starting to change now, as NFT buyers have begun to realize the same masterminds have been integral to many of the markets top drops.
Case in point is Tommy Kimmelman, the Creative Lead at Nifty Gateway.
Nifty Gateway is a top NFT marketplace and Tommy’s work has produced record-breaking digital artists as Beeple, Pak, and XCOPY on its platform.
For instance, in 2021digital artist Beeple’s Everyday: the First 5000 Days NFT was auctioned by Nifty Gateway for a stunning all-time record amount of $69.3 Million after the marketplace struck a partnership with Sotheby’s.
For Beeple and may others, Tommy has been essential to configuring their drops. His philosophy relies on empowering digital artists to keep feeding the growing NFT space with high quality drops that will be viable even without celebrity hype and fanfare.
