One of the most important things we can do in life is learning how to pace ourselves. Such knowledge is absolutely crucial when you are trying to pursue growth on a rather consistent basis, as any failure within this context can conveniently damage our future prospects. Now, considering the volatility present here, what we try to do is turn the said process into its most guided form. By doing so, human beings significantly slash their odds at achieving sustainable success. One notable fact here is, though, that we actually have different ways through which we can get the desired guidance. All these methods tend to boast a very unique skill-set, thus helping us big time in diversifying our experiences. The benefits of doing so are pretty well-known around the block, and yet once technology appears on the scene, we won’t think twice about narrowing down our focus to one channel. It might sound like an aggressive thing to do, but the bold call will pay off soon. However, while we acknowledge the upsides of technology, we must complete the picture by shedding some light on the downsides as well. An example for the latter could be cryptocurrency, at least that’s how initial impressions made it look like. With people just interested in nit-picking the concept’s opaque nature, it felt as if the generational idea will die down soon. Fortunately, however, we have finally turned a corner. In fact, the virtual currency craze is now firmly on the rise, and a recent testament for that was provided by some fresh funding.
Tom Brady’s NFT agency, Autograph has officially raised $170 million in a Series B round. Led by Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins, the round saw further close participation from Katie Haun’s new fund, and Lightspeed partner, Nicole Quinn. These companies join a star-studded board, which includes Brady, Apple’s Eddy Cue, FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried, and artist, The Weeknd. Autograph is basically created to help celebrities navigate the NFT world and establish a presence in it. The importance of an organization like this one becomes clear when you hear cases such as Floyd Mayweather and Kim Kardashian getting sued for endorsing a failed token. Apart from that, with Autograph’s services based completely on polygon blockchain, it spares the celebrities any pushback around environmental concerns, as the setup is said to use comparatively lower amount of energy.
At present, the NFT agency only has a few partners, except they are actually some of the biggest personalities out there. Names such as Tiger Woods, Simone Biles, Derek Jeter, Naomi Osaka, Usain Bolt, Wayne Gretzky and Tony Hawk are all a part of Autograph’s partner line-up.
“We’re in the midst of an exciting moment in the evolution of the next generation of the internet. Autograph has assembled a world class team that understands how to build trusted, delightful product experiences that will accelerate the mainstreaming of crypto,” said Katie Haun, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz.
