Are cryptoartists the Martin Shkreli of digital creation?

@xuv or maybe the Shkreli wannabees ... 'cos it seems the distribution of "success" is also part of a steep pyramid where the top gain the most part of the cake ...

@xuv it made me sad that both beeple and James white have latched onto this.

@sprkwd @xuv very much the same here. It's interesting seeing the huge difference in opinion and credulity from different sides of the technological and political divide.

I very firmly believe digital artists need a more reliable way to get paid for just creating, but not at such a cost to the planet and not in such a popularity-biased way.

Just another way to monetise clout over creation.
