Founder and chief generative coder at “We help mint millionaires!”

Some of my favorites and some I’ve worked on that are still available to mint.

Before starting, I just want to note that my main objective in writing on Medium is to help generative NFT teams understand what is involved in building and launching a generative NFT set — from…

A look at the set, and an intro to Theta for those unfamiliar.

Up until now, I’ve mainly written about Ethereum-based generative NFT sets and the OpenSea marketplace. But recently, I got a call from a team asking if I’d like to do some generative art programming for an upcoming…

I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve been on 15 generative drop teams and have seen some activity on this!

Having programmed around 150,000 NFTs to date, I’ve seen pretty much every generative art scenario you can think of. And one issue that crops up on almost every single project I’ve…

How many to include, what they should look like, and how to do them.

So far, I’ve had the good fortune to do the art programming for almost 20 generative NFT drops. About half of them are launched (many sold out!) and many are in development still. (Three of them…

Wow, here we are just four days into 2022 and, if you’ve been offline for just a few days, you could have literally missed what’s shaping up as one of the larger NFT drops (as measured by the size…

I’ve written before about Budweiser’s recent NFT drop and Pepsi’s, comparing and contrasting the two a bit. But, there’s one interesting aspect I don’t think I covered in-depth here, and that’s the major difference in their Ethereum smart…

The more traits, the better — to a degree.

If you’re new to making rarity tables for generative NFT sets, I recommend reading my previous article on what they are and how to set them up before reading this one. That article is here:

Okay, so now you know what…

My company,, handles generative NFT drops for what you’d probably (until lately) consider “normal” NFT drop teams. That is to say, we’ve been involved in drops ranging from those with little to no fanfare all the way up to drops…
