A Good Person: black and white abstract digital art

Broke two NFTs and produced anomalous errors, but got these done today

Great news — I found out yesterday I’ve been accepted into Tokhun’s Partner Artist program. We get to break things for them in testing.

Oh, and our new NFTs are displayed on the home page gallery. Which is also pretty cool. Speaking of which …

Minting an NFT is not always a straightforward process, especially when the platform is still in development. I had some trouble and broke my first two mints in such a way that it caused them to be in a “weird state,” according to one developer.

Not sure yet what that means on the blockchain, but the Tokhun devs told me the error revealed an edge case they haven’t seen yet. So, for once I helped by breaking something. I wish it could always be like that.

One developer worked with me for a couple hours this morning through our chat on Telegram till he found a solution. (That’s startup tech support — up close and personal.) All so I could create a couple NFTs and publish them.

When you click on them, you can see the asset information and metadata.

As of this writing, Tokhun.io and CNFT.io are the only two NFT platforms with marketplaces on Cardano. I chose Tokhun even though they’re still working on their marketplace and we’re not able to auction on the platform yet. I appreciate their cautious approach with this newfangled tech, and it’ll be up soon.

Then I’ll get to break more shit while we help them test the marketplace functions. Hooray!

In the meantime, I’ll be making and posting more art. Lots of it, apparently. I tried this just to learn about NFTs and accidentally started a second business.

So follow me on Twitter to catch updates and find out when I’ll drop my first collection.
