In the NFT space, we say the community members comes first. The reality today is that investors come first. Most NFT projects answer to their investors. They are the sponsors and beneficiaries of the projects. But there is an exception: The independent, self-funded projects.
The NFT projects built on little more than a vision. These projects might not be the first result in your Web3 search. They're not the projects trending on OpenSea or Twitter. Rather, it is the recommendation shared between friends and family. It is the founder prepping for a pitch one moment, coordinating events and doing community moderation the next. This is the growing project that, not long ago, was one person’s pipe dream.
Of all the ways to start an NFT project– applying for a loan, crowdfunding, seeking venture capital – this was not the safe bet. Bootstrapping your project puts your future at risk. You and your team work, sometimes one month to the next, on the faith that this will one day pay off. Sometimes, it doesn’t.
To launch a self-funded NFT project is a success on its own. To stay in the Web3 space? That's a point of pride.
By supporting an independent NFT project, you support a project that answers to its community members. Your ticket won't go unattended to. Your feedback and suggestions will likely turn into a feature. The numbers are important to a self-funded project, but so are the names.
We support independent NFT projects to make the space personal. Because we want to see our community thrive. Because we want diversity and innovation. Because we believe in an idea.
We support bootstrapped projects because they are human, like the rest of us. And as an independent and bootstrapped project, we wear our story with pride.
