NFTs Explained with Justin Maller!

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have likely been taking over your news feed in the last few weeks, as they certainly have ours. With an almost Gamestop-esque rise recently, we're seeing more and more headlines about digital assets being sold for thousands, if not millions, of dollars. This week, we take a brief moment to go over the fundamentals of NFTs and then chat with Justin Maller, a well-known digital artist and Chief Creative Officer at DeviantArt, to see the other side of the coin and how NFTs could be truly game-changing for digital artists like him.
