Exporting cultural richness online through the worlds of Torah and NFTs.
Artist Mike Wirth’s article Spiritual pixels: reconciling Judaism and NFTs is published in Challah Magazine, an online magazine for young Jews.
“By now you’ve heard quite a bit about NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and may have jumped into their world yourself. NFTs are a creative financial technology phenomena that arose from the creation of platforms for digital creators and the like to list and value their artwork. The NFT marketplace has grown to a global multibillion-dollar cultural hub in only a few short years. I want to focus on how Jews and Jewish creators are making a niche for themselves in this volatile yet meteorically growing marketplace, and why the future of Jewish NFTs is still something that is shapeable by all of us.”
