LinkedIn co-founder auctions off Solana NFTs
Reid Hoffman, a LinkedIn co-founder, has a vision got “Untranslatable Words” NFTs that the executive plans to auction off daily on Solana’s marketplace Magic Eden. Magic Eden has recorded a total of 5.5 million trades worth over $801 million on its marketplace since the beginning of 2022.
Hoffman argues that jumping on the NFT bandwagon is his take on the crypto bear market. The LinkedIn co-founder considers the bear market “a good moment for experimentation.”
Inspired by the potential of DALL•E and NFTs — and the possibilities that they unleash together — my team and I have created a number of small image collections that we’ll be tokenizing as NFTs.
The first collection debuts on Magic Eden today.
Here’s why I’m experimenting:

Hoffman was quoted as saying:
The current bear market in crypto makes a good moment for experimentation with a long-term outlook. Developers and entrepreneurs who continue to work in this space are the ones who are most focused on long-term value creation. They’ll build enduring products and use cases.
