How a Former MLB Player Hit a Grand Slam with His NFT Artwork

Public Aggregation ChannelOctober 21, 2021
Micah Johnson, artist and creator of Aku Inc, joins Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Delphi Digital, on Kelly's series on community tokens to discuss his journey into the NFT space and his popular character Aku. From a young age, Johnson’s sole ambition in life was to play in Major League Baseball. Once he achieved this goal, he discovered a passion for painting and art. Upon retirement, he discovered the chaotic yet nascent world of NFTs and became immersed. Johnson has since pioneered the hugely successful Aku series, which centers around a young astronaut who explores different worlds and is intended to be an inspirational beacon for young people. Kelly and Johnson discuss this journey into NFTs and social token communities, and they brainstorm several directions in which these trends could develop. Filmed on October 12, 2021.

Universal Tokenization: The Road to a Limitless Blockchain
Many new crypto start-ups who collect money in exchange for the distribution of their token seem to think this does not classify as a “security”, according to Douglas Borthwick, chief marketing officer and head of business development at INX Limited. The SEC disagrees. Borthwik is working to create vital infrastructure for the “tokenization of everything” world of tomorrow. He and the team at INX are working to get ahead of the curb in regards to regulation. Their vision for which sorts of assets could exist on blockchain in the future expands beyond financial assets. Perhaps we could see passports, social security, and driver’s licenses all represented as NFTs unique to the individual. The “tokenization of everything” revolution could be larger than we think. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on December 2, 2021.
