Irene Zhao Builds an Empire with Her NFTs
She made over $5 million last month selling her photos as NFTs.
NFT is the medium that makes the new web3 creator economy possible, Zhang explained on Twitter, noting that "it removes the rent seeking intermediary, and directly makes the users the owners."
"It can also create a market sensitive pricing mechanism," she said.
She released her first NFT collection called IreneDAO in January which features pictures of herself along with phrases and quotes that are popular in the cryptocurrency community.
Members of IreneDAO, which stands for decentralized autonomous organization, include YouTube sensation Logan Paul, who dropped about $268,000 buying Zhao’s NFTs.
There certainly is a lot of money in the NFT space. Sales volume totaled $24.9 billion in 2021, compared with just $94.9 million the year before, Reuters reported, citing data from market tracker DappRadar.
Collectible NFTs were the most popular category, followed by art.
