Williamsburg artist graffitis top NFTs

 

The Future. Plenty of street artists have turned their physical work into NFTs, but few have taken NFTs and given them a physical, public home. Graffiti artist Masnah is looking to change that with commissioned works of the most popular NFT art pieces in the streets of Williamsburg. This new stage for NFT art may give a new spotlight to digital artists with a more universal audience.

A brick Opensea

Graffiti artist Masnah is making his mark on the NFT world — quite literally.

  • Masnah’s first commissioned piece, a cowboy CryptoPunk, gained traction when the owner started sharing pictures of the art on Twitter and NFT owners grew eager to see their digital art in a mural form as well.
  • Commission requests started pouring in, and Manash got to work. As more people discover his art, it has become a marketing vehicle for web3 projects.
  • Masnah also began his own NFT collection, and holders must buy his tokenized bricks to commission in-real-life art.

Masnah’s physical art is helping NFT holders gain recognition for their art and helping the digital artists see a permanent home for their work. The physical mural itself is linked back to the blockchain.

60+ murals have been commissioned to date, following the more recent trend where NFT art pairs with physical experiences.

Entering the hybrid-verse
Masnah’s artwork highlights the ever-growing synergy between web3 and physical spaces. The Williamsburg murals are already seeing replicated projects, like Manny Links in Los Angeles.

Looking ahead, NFTs and digital art will continue to pick up momentum, and the reasons behind investment will continue to evolve. Simultaneously, the project highlights a democratized world for graffiti art, where works are celebrated and preserved. Digital art and crypto-backed projects will give people more access to in-person communities, direct lines to artists, and premium experiences in hybrid environments.

Tech CEOs want to take your work performance data public

 

The Future. A plausible world where worker performance is tracked from one job to the next may sound crazy (or even dystopian) to some, but it shines a light on how the tech industry may look to quantify employee performance in a post-pandemic world. Cue the theme song to Black Mirror

Yikes
Auren Hoffman, the CEO of Safegraph and the host of the World of DaaS podcast, recently discussed a controversial idea during an interview with Charlie Youakim.

The two proposed a future where worker performance would be tracked from job to job via a shareable database… forever. Seems like an evolution of a growing trend of companies obsessed with tracking employee performance.

  • Coinbase recently introduced a system that has employees rating each other.
  • Workday, Lattice & CultureAmp are used by thousands of companies for employee reviews & HR deliverables.

The list goes on, but this particular technology would go one step further and reveal sensitive information about your work history and allow anyone to see it.

Eliminate bias
Many HR professionals have denounced the idea, but others see it as an opportunity to improve hiring and eliminate bias. And bias in hiring is one problem companies everywhere are looking to fix. That said, a numerical system that tracks you at every job you’ve ever had might be dead on arrival.

Dave Carhart, vice president of Lattice Advisory Services, a division of Lattice, mentions, “Not all companies judge success and failure, good performance and poor performance, in the same way. They also aren’t measuring employees in the same way, on the same scale, or tracking the same metrics.”

Btw, Google agrees. And Carhart also goes on to say that performance should be aligned with company culture, management quality, and growth opportunities. Many hope we keep it that way.
