Digital art has been around for many decades, but most people hadn’t thought of it as ownable/collectible. Why pay for a JPEG or a PNG file when you can right click and save it to your computer for free? That viewpoint made it difficult for digital artists to be properly remunerated for their work. NFTs (non-fungible tokens) take the proven ideas of digital scarcity and immutable ownership established with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and apply them to unique digital goods including digital art, video game assets, land in the metaverse, etc. Much of the early art made as NFTs (which predated the acronym itself) shared a common aesthetic and spirit. Our community called this common aesthetic “crypto art.” We began to make the case that this was an important global art movement. In my 2018 article “What is CryptoArt?” I laid out the ten tenets of crypto art which I believe have held up well for the most part.
