Be part of the new creator economy
Creators – whether it’s art, collectibles, music etc. – they now have the chance of being part of a completely new creator economy focused on them rather than on a platform.
When an NFT is created, the artist can set a royalty fee, that will also be written on the blockchain. Whenever a resale happens, a cut of the profits goes to the creator. As the terms are clearly written on the blockchain, there are no intermediaries needed.
This course can also serve as the foundation for the needed knowledge to get a job in the crypto space – e.g., in a DAO focused on NFTs, curator on a marketplace or just a flipper.
Content and Overview
This course contains 29 lectures and 1 hour 5 minutes of content. It’s designed for anyone, regardless of experience level, passionate about any form of art, collectibles, music, gaming etc. who wishes to understand the new, continuously developing, NFT world.
Firstly, we clarify what an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is, what makes it valuable and what does “fungible” mean. Then, we walk through how to legally use an NFT’s popularity to create a new version of it and gain more than half a million US Dollars.
After understanding some day-to-day concepts, we move to crypto wallets – what are they, why should you use one, how to create one and how to keep your funds safe.
We continue with the home network of NFTs – the Ethereum blockchain -, what makes it special and how to buy, sell, create and transfer NFTs on the largest marketplace, Opensea.
With these mastered, the course will take you through what answers should we have and what tools we use before investing in a collection.
Then, you will learn about the significant progresses Tezos blockchain has made and in what way is it superior to Ethereum. Also, you will be part of the Tezos blockchain as we will go through the same steps we went on Ethereum – create wallet, buy, sell, create, transfer NFTs -, on the largest marketplace on Tezos, Objkt.
Finally, we wrap up the course with some perspectives on the NFT space, how to avoid suffering if your NFT is dropping in price and a fun fact about Cryptopunks.
There are 5 activities during the course, 4 of them meant to put the newly learned skills into practical use immediately. The last one is a food for thought of which I am really excited to read your answers.
Students completing the course will have the knowledge to create NFT collections and make profits out of selling (their) artwork, as well as being active players in the new creator economy from its incipient blocks.
PS: I have tried to select resources that are both fun and educational; you will find relevant podcasts, articles and Twitter threads. And also what do Steph Curry, Jimmy Fallon and Timbaland have in common.
