Jonathan Nash: Playing the Market NFT Drop – MakersPlace

April 7, 2022

Company: MakersPlace


3D animator Jonathan Nash is gearing up for his first big NFT drop. Through the “Playing the Market” NFT collection, Nash expands his miniature spaceman universe. He is introducing a range of new, colorful space-people engaging in web3 degen behavior — though with their unique style.

The four animations featured in the collection inaugurate eight new characters. In addition, the pieces represent a unique moment in history when artists and technologists alike can hardly go a day without invoking the web3-as-wild-west metaphor.

The narrative of the animations revolves around brightly colored characters who mint, hold and pump NFTs. Then, they vacillate between fear and greed. So in a way, it’s a commentary on the actual behavior of NFT collectors. Nash argues that the presence of a shadowy hand hint at the dark truth of an unseen mover behind all this market mania.
