An interview with the CEO and creators of NaftyArt, the first adult and erotic NFT marketplace.

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have put the hype back into crypto promotion that has been lacking since the decline of ICOs.

However, NFTs have brought something more than excitement to the crypto community — they have monetized a steady stream of new content with enough variety to suit the tastes of all kinds of buyers. After all, there are just 5,728 ICOs listed on ICO Bench — a tiny number of choices for the investor compared to NFT projects which are sprouting up from all corners in and out of the cryptosphere.

Artists like Ja Rule, Snoop Dog, Lindsay Lohan, Grime, William Shatner, Paris Hilton, Eminem, Mark Cuban, and Edward Snowden have joined the fray and launched NFTs in 2021. Generative projects like Bored Apes have captured buyers’ imaginations with minutely personalized characters.

Here is the method that is helping new traders like you get great returns trading options.

In fact, one particularly blase’ Ape recently sold at Sotheby’s for $26 million, raising the promise that someday we may be able to stop mentioning Beeple’s famous sale in every NFT-related article.

But are NFTs really ready to serve the tastes of every buyer? Even the thirstiest of NFT collectors? Up until recently, the answer has been “no”. You can buy a hand-drawn Patient Panda doodle from Gary Vaynerchuck, but if you were looking for adult content NFTs you would be out of luck.

NaftyArt NFT marketplace is looking to change that and carve out a place for adult content in the NFT world with the launch of their platform this week.

When asked what Nafty would bring to the NFT space, NaftyArt CEO Rob Kemenyfi was direct in his response:

“…Adult content, nudity, erotic content. For some reason, platforms are very taboo about that type of subject matter,” Kemenyfi said.

We interviewed Kemenyfi and three new adult-content NFT creators, Jull Dolly, Mila Azul, and Lily Hendrickson (Amber Chase) concerning the NaftyArt platform as they celebrated the launch.
