@shibacomputer Very interesting. One thing I've also found with the NFT-based art galleries is that their approach to moderating content is basically non-existent. It's one of the reasons I quickly moved away from there (alongside with environmental concerns).
When on Knownorigin I noticed some alt-right content, which was pretty obviously racist. Posted it in their group chat and the entire community there was pretty much ok with it, defending it even. Knownorigin mods did nothing about it. Same with Superrare. Really makes it the ideal vehicle for the alt-right as they really seemed to be flourishing on there.
