CryptoArt Sundays: Interview with Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is a crypto investor, entrepreneur and the owner of many NFTs in the CryptoArt game. We chat about how he got into blockchain, what his favorite type of investment is, why he loves collectibles and more!

Michael Jordan is an American professional basketball player who played for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards. He is currently a part owner of the Charlotte Hornets, and has won six NBA Championships.

It’s time for another round of CryptoArt Sundays, everyone! This week, I’m thrilled to present you to the great work of Michael Jordan, nicknamed MJ Fellow Actuary.

Miachel identifies himself as a “meta artist” who employs a range of techniques to convey the concept that beauty may take various forms. In 2017, he began investigating the blockchain for artistic purposes, although he has always been a doodler at heart.

He even has a YouTube channel with more than 30 thousand subscribers. He is a Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary and a Fellow of the Actuarial Society of South Africa, therefore the channel is committed to educating people about actuarial science.

Let’s get started and learn more about his NFT art adventure!

What drew you to construct your own NFTs and how did you learn about the NFT space?

So, back in 2017, someone in our Bitcoin group informed us about CryptoKittens, and that’s when I first learned about NFTs! I was also doing art at the time, and one gallery questioned how I could show that my printed digital works would be actual 1/1s and that I wouldn’t reproduce them.

I assured him that I am confident in my ability to utilize the blockchain. I went online and found a service called Ascribe that did just that; however, it was not very popular and eventually closed. It was towards the conclusion of the year. When Covid occurred a year later, I knew I wouldn’t be able to physically show, so I applied to join SuperRare. I just did it to display; I never expected to sell anything. Then, yeah, it’s been a wild trip with more than $100,000 in sales.

How frequently do you make something?

I try to produce as much as possible; sometimes I can’t, and other times I can’t stop. When that creative spirit strikes, you must let it to do its work without interfering, even if it means missing a few deadlines in other areas of your life.

How do you go about coming up with ideas?

My creative method is to go with the flow; I know that sounds corny, but I try not to push anything and instead allow the work develop organically rather than attempting to control every step.

Do you have any CryptoArtists with whom you’d want to collaborate?

Fortunately, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of artists; we created a piece called the NFT Community, which had over 150 CryptoArtists and is still my best-selling item. Coldie is someone I’d want to work with, and I don’t believe anybody would say no to working with XCopy!

What do you believe CryptoArt’s future will be like?

Because of the anti-fraud and other logistic advantages of NFTs, I believe CryptoArt is the future of art. I believe NFTs will become the industry standard, even for real artwork.

What are you working on right now?

I’m presently working on a piece in which a guy looks in the mirror but is blinded by his reflection.

What are the locations where collectors may locate your work?

Collectors may discover my work on SuperRare, where my login – MJ the Fellow Actuary – is the same as my education YouTube channel.
