Billboard described the 2x-GRAMMY-Nominated artist/DJ/producer and Dim Mak Records founder as “one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world.” As a long-time collector and “an unabashed futurist” (Fortune), Aoki has been at the forefront with his NFT collaborations, generating over $4 million with the launch of his first NFT, the Dream Catcher series. He also co-created the first blockchain-based episodic series with Dominion X (@DominionX_NFT), partnered with Sotheby’s on their Contemporary Curated series, and recently partnered with comic book legend Todd McFarlane to create OddKey, an NFT marketplace on the Solana blockchain for comic artists to freely showcase and sell their original digital artwork.
As an NFT collector and creator, Aoki knows the power of NFTs to build vibrant communities: “Since I started my first company Dim Mak back in 1996 I have cared for, grown, and embraced the concept of community. Now as we look at the future of what our community wants, I believe that the utility needs to be diverse, engaging, and evolving with culture. This is where IRL meets meta – not just in my world but the many worlds I am a part of. Members will not only get access to my own projects but a wealth of friends & family NFT projects and real-world experiences.”
