Web3 Photography

The rise of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and Web3 technology is ushering in a new era of creativity, ownership, and empowerment. But what exactly are NFTs and Web3, you might ask? Well, let's start with NFTs. They're unique digital assets that are stored on a blockchain – a decentralized, digital ledger that can't be altered or deleted. This means that you can own an NFT just like you own a physical object, and it'll always be yours.

Now, enter Web3 – the next generation of the internet. It's a decentralized network that allows for peer-to-peer transactions without intermediaries, like banks or big tech companies. This means that you have complete control over your digital assets, and you can use them however you want.

So, what does this all mean for the world of digital art and collectibles? Well, it means that artists, musicians, and creators can now sell their work directly to their fans, without having to go through middlemen. It means that collectors can buy and own unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that can never be duplicated. And it means that the value of these digital assets is determined by the market, not by a central authority.

The possibilities are truly endless, and the NFT and Web3 revolution is just getting started. So, get ready to dive into a new world of digital creativity and ownership – the future is here, and it's all about NFTs and Web3!

The NFT photography market had significant growth in 2022, reaching sales of 22,000 ETH or $47 million, a 33% increase from 2021. The second half of the year saw strong performance, but trailing volumes declined in the final quarter. Photographers faced challenges with the sustainability of royalties, as 85% of the total came from ten collections, leading to liquidity drying up in the market. Despite this, 50 photographers earned 50 ETH or more, and the concentration of earnings has been declining since September. Collectors also had a difficult year, with 90% of collections losing value, but editions had a strong year, grossing 2,600 ETH or $7.2 million.
