I am not talking about fine art, but the art that we all consume, literature, furniture, film, music, decorations, etc.

Currently the market for creators is abysmal, and rent-seekers typically capture >95% of profits. The disintermediation of the markets for creative goods is going to realize the value creatives bring to society. In addition, by increasing the sheer numbers of creators, there are going to be knock on effects.

Totally agreed that the artist market is terribly skewed against creators, and anything that improves that is great

I'm still not sure why I, as an fan, would want an NFT, though. What I'm excited about is the actual movie or book or furniture. And for artists, how is an NFT more helpful than supporting them directly on Patreon?
