jonCates: Crypto is often compared to the Wild West. what do you think of that ser? and how do you feel about Crypto Art?
desultor: aw shit feels accurate sometimes. gunslingers, rowdiness: no rules just right. Like some kinda manifest destiny, crypto art feels like an artists promised land in a world of chaos. it’s a place anyone in the world, of any flavor profile and experience can craft an identity, a body of work and engage folks 24/7

jonCates: speaking of identities, from one cryptocowpoke to another, how did you choose your name, desultor?
desultor: i knew when i started i wanted a name and look that was unique, that held some interesting underlying meaning, and that could be a recognizable brand. “desultors” in olden times were individuals skilled at jumping from horse or chariot to one another amidst crowds of spectators. a fine fit for crypto and nfts i’d say

MAX CAPACITY: How did you get into crypto/cryptoart/NFTs
desultor: in 2008 I got into cryptokitties, buying the most useless and worthless cats my unresearched fomo self could find. soon after I learned about opensea and started minting there, then rarible on eth. from there I went jam on foundation, known origin, hicetnunc and some. these days I’m either manifolding some editions, burning fakeasf to mint fake rares on etc, or throwing together teztrash
