Digital Art in the Blockchain Era: An Interview with John Orion Young

OpenSea Blog – Dan Viau

"John Orion Young, a VR sculptor and technologist, is creating a dapp-powered VR world called JOYWORLD, where users can collect and trade unique digital 3D sculptures using a custom ERC-721 contract on the Ethereum blockchain. His smart contract has processed over 130 ETH and he expects to be able to live off the revenue soon.

He plans to continue building and expanding JOYWORLD, as he sees it as an integral part of his artistic process."
