APEX, N.C., March 7, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Niftorian NFT project today announced the 14 artists in class number one of the world’s first NFT Artist Accelerator. The accelerator is based on the model popularized for helping accelerate the development of tech startups but modified to focus strictly on helping artists successfully launch NFT projects. Niftorian also announced today that it is accepting applications for class number two of the accelerator which will kick off in May 2022. Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis so early entry is likely to increase chances of admittance.
“NFT projects resemble small businesses or new product launches more than the gallery shows that artists are accustomed to. There are so many variables to account for, new technology and collector expectations, and many are outside of artists’ expertise. The Niftorian NFT Artist Accelerator helps artists fill their gaps in knowledge and connections to improve the impact and success of their NFT art projects,” said Niftorian co-founder, Bret Kinsella. “This is similar to the challenge that many software engineers face when launching their first company. They need to learn how to fill requirements for business success beyond the technology. Tech startup accelerators wound up being a great model for helping artists in the NFT market.”
Josh Scott (aka ScoJo on social media), is an artist, designer, creative director, and Niftorian co-founder. He commented, “As an artist, my first encounter with the NFT world was a mix of excitement and confusion. There is tremendous upside and opportunities are plentiful but there is also a lot to learn and there is no map to navigate terrain shrouded in a thick mist. What marketplace should I list on? Or, should I do it from my own website? How should I price my collection? What utility, if any, should I promise? How do I create a smart contract? Do I need developers? Is a Discord necessary? There are so many questions. I learned a lot as a collector in 2021 but the accelerator was conceived to fill all of the gaps and help artists really seize this opportunity.”

About the Niftorian NFT Accelerator
“NFTs require a combination of art, marketing, and technical skills to succeed. Most people in the NFT space have one or more of these but not all three. The Niftorian NFT Artist Accelerator is designed to help artists fill in the gaps and set them up for long-term success in the space. It’s rewarding to see so much progress by the artists after just a couple of weeks,” said Niftorian project co-founder Roger Kibbe.
Michal Stanlislawk, Niftorian co-founder and developer (aka xmstan on social media) added, “We are placing a big emphasis on the tech, community building, and the basics of building the business behind a sustainable NFT initiative. The nuances of smart contracts, marketplaces, building your Discord, and getting the legal right are easy to overlook. It’s about sharing what we’ve learned and bringing in experts that can share at an even deeper level.”
