I mean, HOT DAMN! LOOK AT THIS THING!
There is an Ecological Impact of NFTs. Apparently the trade in coded simulacra is burning up energy at alarming rates. I can't say I personally know a damn thing about how NFTs work nor how the Crypto currency system works either. I also don't know how cars work. But I don't need to know anything about combustion engines to know tail pipes spew hot steamy death.
Someone else however knows a lot about how all these things work and they did all the research and penned a very intimate look at this Digital Bubble of hot steaming death. And you can find all this highly detailed work hereon Medium: LINK
Hint: Most of the damage to the world is actually due to the Ethereum cypto currency that is required to participate in the NFT Market. Which all really sounds like some kind of scam being played on Artists by the people behind Ethereum to me.
And we have added all new exclusive items, see below.
Step right up and empty your wallets on some of this fine-ass paraphernalia. Super rare, elicit goods sure to increase in value for years to come. Step on up eBay flippers! You know the hustle.

The allure of Designer Stickers can be witnessed at work in a Toy Artists career through the Suckadelic Stoopid Stickers project I ran for The Super Sucklord this year. But launching a Pre-Order Event on Kickstarter the 200 sticker packs I was willing to print up and package for the 'Bootleg Toy' Scene originator, became a high demand project and we ended up making 600 sticker packs instead! The fan base demanded much more than we could anticipate, and that is the beauty of Kickstarter. It is the PreOrder Platform that lets fans tell you what your reach SHOULD be, VS what you think it is.
Sucklord has been on the scene for quite a while and yet has not gotten the Street Sticker boost he should have and desires deeply. So I'm glad to help him put a dent in this dilemma by supplying the demand and putting a ton of street stickers in his greedy hands without applying any effort on his part.
I personally buy up all the Designer Stickers I can from toy artists, again, this is very few and the selection is also very thin in each artists online shop. So I strongly encourage Toy Artists to get their sticker game on and make the moves to get into the streets planet wide.
"How does one break into this scene?" you may ask. Well outside of locating and testing out silk-screened sticker printers, anyone can get in touch with Discordia Merchandising and get access to this niche art world in a snap. I print stickers, package stickers, sell sticker packs through Discordia Culture Shop, and even run a Sticker Drop.
This is a service whereby anyone can mail in, or have me print up, any volume of stickers. The Discordia Sticker Drop then sends back a small selection of stickers from all participants to anyone who sends in. But it doesn't stop there. The Discordia Sticker Drop also mails out assortments of stickers to various Sticker Art Shows globally, and throws free stickers into every order from Discordia Culture Shop, and our 'sister stores' Populous Ephemera and Planet Eris. Which amounts to dozens if not hundreds of orders each month for the last 12 years.
We also toss stickers into our Underground Blend Sticker Packs. If you send in more than 30 of any single design. Underground Blend Sticker Packs has just concluded collection for Volume 15 packs and Volume 16 is collecting now here: CALL TO ARTISTS UNDERGROUND BLEND Volume 16. This series has been going on since 2014 and just happens to be the longest running Street Sticker Pack series ever.
Another way anyone can jump into the Street Sticker Scene is by taking part in the Bootleg Posse Project. Pick up the Template from the PEEL Magazine site and email it in to get into the running to be included in the PEEL Has A Posse Special Issue already Unlocked in the Kickstarter PreOrder Event!
