Martin Lawrence Reveals Plans For Cardano-Powered NFT Collection

Martin Lawrence, an American comedian and actor, revealed his decision to join the Cardano ($ADA) community on Tuesday (June 7).

His comments were made during a conversation on Twitter Spaces with Patrick Tobler, Founder and CEO of NFT-MAKER, and Charles Hoskinson, Co-Founder and CEO of IO Global (aka “IOG”, formerly known as “IOHK”), the company responsible for Cardano’s research and development.

Here are some highlights of what Lawrence and Hoskinson said during this chat.

When and How Lawrence Got Into CryptoA couple of years ago, when my team brought NFTs to my attention.

Lawrence’s First Impressions of Cryptocurrencies and NFTsI want to learn more about them… That’s why I’m excited to partner with your company.

What Hoskinson Thinks About How NFTs Have Evolved on CardanoI didn’t expect Cardano to be a major player in the NFT space, at least initially. It kind of caught us all by surprise. We worked really hard at trying to create great asset standards…

We didn’t expect to to have NFTs be quite large, but then it was completely community led. So, all these projects materialised out of nowhere, and about 40% of the 1000+ projects on Cardano are NFT-related, and there’s over five million assets that have been issued on Cardano, and the transaction volume is remarkable…

Influential American rapper and record producer DeAndre Cortez Way, aka “Soulja Boy“, also seems to be excited by Cardano-powered NFTs.

Last Friday (June 3), he turned his Twitter followers to ask what Cardano NFTs to buy by sending out the following tweet that the IOG CEO found interesting.
