This 24-year-old artist has made over $300,000 in 10 months selling NFTs
 

 
image
Since February, Lana Denina has earned over $300,000 from selling her art as NFTs, or nonfungible tokens, on various platforms. But only a month earlier, she just began learning what they are.

image
At the time, "I didn't know anything about blockchain," the 24-year-old tells CNBC Make It. She started looking into it, and "I was mind blown," she says. "It was completely revolutionary."

image
As a painter, Denina was instantly impressed with the technology and its ability to act as a vehicle for proof of ownership for artists, she says. "Traditional galleries are kind of like the old world," since there isn't much diversity, Denina says. "I never felt fully attracted to it, especially as a woman of color."

Unlike traditional markets for art, NFTs and Web3 allows artists to create their own galleries and set their own prices online, Denina explains. Artists can also earn royalties on secondary sales of their work with NFTs. Denina herself earns 10%.

image
"I hope to inspire more creatives who look like me to step a foot into tech," she says.

Denina, who is based in Montreal, Canada, started selling NFTs of paintings she created one by one, but later began to list entire collections. Though both are unique, the single works are one-of-one, non-generative pieces, whereas collections are often generative and meant to be collectibles.

She minted her most recent collection, called the Mona Lana, in November, and it sold out within weeks.

image
The Mona Lana collection includes 500 unique portraits of women created by Denina. Each portrait was generated by code with 112 different traits, she says.

"It took off very fast. I was really surprised," Denina says. "I don't know if I got lucky. It was a big success for me and my partner. We worked a lot on this project, and we were really happy." While Denina works with a partner, she creates all of the art herself. She did not disclose whether profits are split.

image
In her work, Denina represents of people of color and Black culture, she says, which has resonated deeply with many in the NFT community. She feels especially grateful when customers say they decided to buy their first NFT after seeing her work.

"When they saw the Mona Lana, they really wanted to buy an NFT," she says. "Before that, they were looking at other projects, and they didn't feel fully represented maybe."

Once the Mona Lana collection passes 100 ether in volume traded, Denina plans to give a percentage of sales to Cyber Baat, a creator DAO collective that supports African artists, and donate to women's shelters in Canada. As of now, she's close, at 99.5 ether in volume traded.

image
Though Denina is doing well in the NFT space and says it is different from the traditional market, there is still work to do regarding inclusivity and support, she says.

"As a young woman of color in this space, it has been 100 times more hard to be respected and seen as equal as the other bros of this space," Denina tweeted in November. "However, I've also met incredibly supporting, extremely intelligent and talented people."

she's using her demograph to hide the actual crime of money laundering thru Blockchain volatility.....




She's been sponsored and I need to talk to her sponsor



And she's a mix of Latino Island people and so she uses "ppl of color" to provide a scapegoat of acceptance.





IM NOT IMPRESSED BY THIS SCAMMER AND HER TROUPE OF a*sWIPES

Honestly I know of NFT's but I have never purchased one. I invest and trade crypto/stocks and Gold. I also stake and yield farm crypto some have 500% returns some have over 2,000% returns. My knowledge honestly came from watching YouTube following the right people and up and coming projects. Doing hours of research and DD. All I can tell you is buy $ADA and hold buy $CKB (Nervos) and hold

CKB is the blockchain for all crypto blockchains to communicate with each other. Provides interopbrability seamlessly with other chains, cheap fees etc. Its a store of value token you can rent out your CKB and earn passive income. Basically staking and yield farming (google it) also go on Youtube and type in Kevin Wang Nervos watch his interviews to get familiar with the project.

I’ve asked this often and always get a response of “ownership” then I respond with what’s stopping me from saving the nft as a jpeg and now I own it to. Never any replies to that

All i can say it’s not natural not knowing sh*t about a thing one month and the next month you supposedly making hundreds and thousands off it? Every pimp, playah, hustler particle in my body gets nothing but red flags hearing these types of stories.
