This edition of CryptoArt News focuses on cryptoartists with CryptoArtNet listings. Last week we reached our goal of 100 Founding Artists a bit early. Originally expected by the end of June, new members kept on coming in and now we have a rich array of Artist listings where you can discover new cryptoartists and find out more about ones with which you’re familiar!

Sparrow – Respect!
“Making the space welcoming – to everyone – will mean we include everyone. And really, that is the path to wider adoption.”
“In art, in gaming, in blockchain, every one of us can make a difference by actively building a space where people feel like they belong & can contribute.”
She also appeared in a two part episode of Josie Bellini’s Behind the Art with Josie:

Matt Kane on Community
“This community is a grand experiment with limitless potential to inspire and influence the outside world. The reality is that much of the world is sick right now and has been for some time; long before this virus. If we can show the world what a healthy and sustainable community looks like, it will go a long way toward mainstream adoption. People prefer to be healthy, want to be loved, want to be connected to inspiring people. We can be those people. We can become the model that makes the old model obsolete.”
