🎙 31 - The FULL Aku Story with Founder, Micah Johnson | Overpriced JPEGs
MLB to NFTs
AkuDreams recently made headlines for their $34M smart contract mistake. But long before that, Aku founder and artist, Micah Johnson, was making headlines for his groundbreaking project.
Aku became one of the first NFT projects to be optioned by a major Hollywood studio and is currently working with former Lucas film executives to develop a feature-length film using Aku IP.
In his first press appearance since the Akutar auction, Micah Johnson, the former MLB player turned artist, joins Carly to discuss how to create lasting IP, what it was like transitioning from being a professional athlete to a professional artist to a CEO, why Unreal Engine is so important to the metaverse, and, of course, that notorious smart contract error.
This is a project built to last a bear market, so don’t miss it!
