Yuri Dud explained the reason for abandoning his own NFTs


In 2021, journalist Yuri Dudyu was offered to release his own NFT collection, but he reacted “very conservatively” and abandoned this idea. He spoke about this during an interview with St. Petersburg artist Ellen Sheidlin, as well as her husband and curator Evgeny.

According to Dudya, it seemed to him “hack-work”.

“NFT is when you just want to pinch off a piece of your fame and sell it dearly to people who like you for overpriced. It seemed to me that this was not a very respectful idea for the public, ”the interviewer explained.

Yevgeny Sheidlin supported Dud’s decision, since NFTs should be “linked to real value.”

“After you entered there, you should continue to support collectors, make announcements about your own collection, you are attached to it, this is your priority. Otherwise, you will simply disappoint your collectors,” he added.

The art curator recommended that Dudya consider creating tokens for the purpose of charity, and not for the purpose of making money.

Recall that in December 2022, two works by Ellen Sheidlin from the Annihilation collection were sold for a record 19,860 TON (more than $50,000 at the time of the transaction) on the TON Diamonds NFT marketplace.
