EP 25 - Creating and Collecting NFTs with Pplpleasr

In this episode

This week on Next with Novo I welcome in Emily Cheng, also known as Pplpleasr. Emily is a multidisciplinary artist whose original animations have blossomed into some of the most viral NFTs to date. Emily recently wrote an op-ed titled “How crypto changed my life,” and recaps her growth throughout the pandemic, from unemployment to creating her first animated short. Making progress with NFTs, Emily was able to grow her own audience, shifting power away from a few wealthy investors and into a collective unit. Her success led to the creation of PleasrDAO, a collective of DeFi leaders, NFT collectors, and digital artists who’ve acquired significant cultural pieces. The NFT community has completely altered Emily’s path, and this episode is an inspiring glimpse into the creative, collective change that can exist within the crypto community.
