Collector Poll Round-Up
For the past few weeks, we’ve asked Lazy collectors to weigh in on topics ranging from whether NFT finance is a good idea to their support for Bitcoin NFTs. In this week’s issue, we’re going to take a look at the results.
In Newsletter #93, we explored some of the ways that the music industry is adopting NFTs and we asked you to tell us what is most exciting. The results were clear: the majority is keen to see NFTs that grant royalties to songs. This is in line with our sense that there is a growing expectation among collectors that NFTs provide financial value beyond speculation and aesthetics.
Newsletter #92 was all about Bitcoin NFTs, a topic that has since continued to generate a lot of debate as more and more projects either clone themselves onto Bitcoin’s blockchain or move their collections entirely. A little more than half of Lazy’s collectors who responded to the poll thought Bitcoin should encourage NFTs.
After $1m worth of NFTs were stolen in a sophisticated hack, we published Newsletter #91 on how to protect yourself. We were also curious to see how many collectors had suffered from a hack. The results were alarming: half the respondents had been hacked at least once. And 1 out of 10 had been hacked more than two times!
Conceptual NFTs were the topic of Newsletter #90. And, to be honest, we were not surprised to learn that most people do not collect them. But, a glimmer of good news for the conceptual NFT artists: 9% of respondents might be willing to collect these kinds of NFTs in the future. Our guess is that there will be a conceptual NFT that breaks through and raises the popularity for the entire genre.
We explored NFT Finance in Newsletter #89. The results of the reader poll suggest many collectors are still making up their minds about NFT Finance: over a third of respondents weren’t sure if it was a positive development. Time will tell if the financialization of NFTs leads to greater mainstreaming or harmful speculation.
That’s it for this month’s poll round-up. Got an idea for a poll we should run? Send us an email and let us know!
