L.A. Weekly Arts Editor Shana Nys Dambrot tackles the mysterious world of NFTs and NFT art in her newest cover story The Future of NFTs is Female, Too. “Like it or not, understand it or not, the NFT-backed world of crypto art and visual culture on the blockchain has been a breakout story of Covid-era society; and there’s a lot of upside for artists, like enshrined authorship, economic stewardship, global audience reach,” she writes. Women, non-binary folx and POC are often underrepresented in sectors of society like NFT and digital art.
