David Bowie Ethereum NFTs face criticism on Twitter


  • The Bowie-inspired art will raise funds to support charity.
  • Andrew D. Keller’s latest firm “We Love the Arts” has worked on the “Bowie on the Blockchain” project.
  • Pop culture NFT releases have led to controversy among those who aren’t fond of the technology.

The David Bowie estate is set to release NFTs; however, fans aren’t fascinated.

Bowie-inspired NFTs have been made by nine visual artists. The non-fungible tokens belong to the “Bowie on the Blockchain” NFT launch and the generated funds will be donated to the non-profit organization CARE that works to fight hunger and poverty on a global level. 

Bowie married Iman, a supermodel who also happens to be a worldwide advocate for CARE. 

OpenSea tweeted:

On September 13th, David Bowie’s undying influence will impact yet another new frontier as nine of the world’s leading crypto-artists come together to celebrate his legacy and put #BowieOnTheBlockchain.

Ryan Foutty, OpenSea vice president of business, shared that the phenomenal collection will put forth the most innovative NFT artists who will attract a new generation of fans towards web3.

The association of the iconic star with the blockchain tokens hasn’t been well-accepted by a number of social media users. Some users have shown support while others have asked the Bowie estate, “Don’t do this.”

Duncan Jones, Bowie’s son and a filmmaker Duncan Jones has also called  NFTs “fad.”

Meanwhile, artists like Fewocious are excited about working on the NFT art to support charity.

Talking about his Bowie sculpture, Fewocious said that he can’t wait to display the remaining piece.
