Sloika is Photo NFT marketplace with full creative control, from limited edition runs to a custom royalty fee. Arming photographers for the digital renaissance. Like most digital creatives, photographers have not been treated well in the web2 era of the internet. The web2 paradigm gives ownership and control of data to large companies like Facebook and Twitter and leaves photographers struggling to find meaningful ways to monetize their work. web3 improves the lives of photographers by giving them control of their work and allowing them to sell scarce, authentic works to anyone who appreciates their creativity. Sloika is built on Ethereum and makes the transition from web2 to web3 easy and efficient for photographers. I believe selling NFTs will become the standard business model for photogs and Sloika will play an important role in making it happen. There’s a strong belief among a growing number of people that visual art NFTs have tremendous value. The same belief isn’t there yet for photography, but you can see signs of it starting to form. Look no further than Justin Aversano’s epic Twin Flames collection — a piece from the collection recently sold at Christie’s for $1M+. I think it’s only a matter of time before photography is a multi-billion dollar asset class just like visual art is. Sloika founders Ev and Arseniy have been working on improving the lives of photographers for over a decade (previously web2 platform 500px). This isn’t a hot new trend to ride for them — they’ve been connected to the photographer world for longer than the cryptocurrency industry has existed.
