I'm not much of an art NFT collector myself, but I do dabble in at least appreciating some NFT art that I find to be interesting in one way or another. So for this episode I spoke to Chainleft, my potential anon online doppelganger, who has recently started a new NFT collection he calls ART PONZI. Having been involved in the NFT space quite early, he is using this collection as a critique of many NFT projects while also testing out very novel mechanisms that few others have dared to try.
In the interview we spoke about how he uses his data science skills to help other NFT projects, why he calls this collection ART PONZI, and why he loves SVG file types for 100% on-chain art. Towards the end we also spoke about the research he calculating the inequality created through Proof of Work versus Proof of Stake consensus mechanisms. His published work on Mirror showed that Proof of Stake creates less inequality than Proof of Work.
