Thank you so much for taking the time to have an interview with DKODING! Please introduce yourself and let our audience know a little bit about your background.
My name is Sarah Marie, I’m an actress and creator of the NFT collection called ETHegirl. I grew up in Northern California which is a whole different world from Southern California. It’s a much different way of life. I grew up with a single mom, I didn’t do well in school socially and never felt like I fit in. I never did well academically either because I learn differently than most. I moved by myself to Los Angeles at 17 to start a life of my own with a dream of a career.
Can you explain what an NFT is, and how did you get into them?
Simply an NFT is cryptography. A no bullshit code that provides the highest sense of security. I got into NFT’s because I understood there is much more to what they can become and provide. They won’t always just be Bored Apes that come with clever packages with guaranteed social stature. Although I believe Bored Apes do have a lot of good advantages for people.
What makes NFTs so valuable?
I believe there are many ways to make an NFT valuable and we have barely discovered the surface. Right now in the NFT game we see them becoming so valuable because of certain brands that become a hot commodity. Eventually we’ll find other ways (some of us already have) to use NFTs in marketing, advertising, leasing, purchasing of products, etc.
Why is it important to have a hardware crypto wallet?
As long as you understand what it is, it can be helpful and a safe asset to use. It’s like having your own personal and digital vault but I would say at this stage it’s not entirely important for every human to have one.
What are the perks of buying an NFT?
Depending on the NFT there could be a ton of perks. More importantly, your purchase should depend on what perks you would like to have with your NFT. You have to start asking yourself what are my hopes with using this NFT I just purchased? Or is it just simply a cool collectable? I think more and more NFT’s will start really finding impactful uses which the buyer will be a part of.
How do you know if your NFT is authentic?
Legally speaking? Look at the history of previous buyers/sellers. The cryptography will be there and that can’t be f_cked with.
Can you explain your process of making an NFT?
There are many ways. I’ll explain my own. I came up with a concept and how I executed it was, getting a team of talented people such as a photographer and graphic designer. I came up with the business structure and minted all the final NFT’s.
Why do some artists not like NFT’s?
When you have a computer generating an NFT collection that all resembles one another… and then have the real artists of the world making extraordinary art using their bodies and minds. Artists are going to get extremely pissed. Luckily, we’re at the beginning stages so we can and are starting to incorporate all artists. Whether that be an extraordinary graphic designer who came up with this insane futuristic piece or someone that uses an easel.
Outside of the NFT/Crypto space, tell us a little bit about your career as an actress and your film PRISM. How do you balance the world of acting and your NFT work?
Well it’s been easy to balance so far considering we’re in the very beginning stages of production. As of now, the promises only go so far with me. If the promises are kept, I’ll be excited to start working my ass off as they would then deserve and they would get a 110% of my efforts as they always do.
