In New York City, the first-ever NFT-vending machine popped up in the financial district, with prices ranging from $5 to over 400 dollars. The once old-fashioned and old-school folks who run baseball are now offering packs of NFT trading cards starting at $50. Joe’s guest this week is among the earliest visionaries pioneering NFT product design: Jesse Johnson is the founder of Pixelcraft Studios, and his creation called Aavegotchi is bringing NFTs to the world of gaming.
