Why it matters: Cuban first mentioned his fascination with NFTs and his journey into the crypto space at The North American Bitcoin Conference on January 19, 2022.
“I have always been aware of bitcoin, its prices, tokens and [crypto] currencies,” Cuban said, as quoted by CNBC. “But what really got me into it was, about a year ago, when I minted my first NFT,” he went on to say.
The opportunity to also earn royalties on secondary sales of his NFTs also appealed to him. “The fact that you can take a digital file — audio, video, image, whatever — and not only create it to sell it, but also attach royalties to it, I’m like, ‘How can you do that?’ you can’t do that with anything physical,” he added.
In March 2021, Cuban created an online art gallery to showcase NFT artwork, the site is called Lazy.com.
