Meet the NFT artists
Proton NFT community exploded over the past few months in terms of volume, artists and presence. We'd like to support the artists that chose Proton to list their artwork and feature them in the newsletter, here's the first one.
Who is DŔâĠőŇ™ ?
My real name is Clive and I live in the United Kingdom in a county called Kent.
What do you do?
I am a project manager for a global organization however I have a keen eye for NFTs and am addicted to Dragons as it shows with my successful NFT Artwork also am fully verified on ProtonMint.
Why did you choose Proton to list your NFTs?
The reason I chose Proton was because of the 0 fees and fast transactions with multi-currency offerings within the app. Also, the marketplace to list at Proton Mint was evolving and the community are what made me choose to remain exclusive to Proton.
If I was new to your Art what would you say is your best collection?
I would say there is two, one is the Dragon Creations which is where it all started, this included the Angry Series and Mosaic Emoji art.
The other is the Mythical Creatures which has a passive income rewards program for any holders of these NFTs with some set to receive a pay-out for one month of $368.

Here's a tweet by Crypto Cyclops asking Marshall if there are plans of bringing physical debit cards to Metal account holders and Marshall responding Yes! Now, imagine getting your wage in Metal Pay where you have recurring buys and Proton mainnet support. Soon you'll be able to report your tax using Taxbit. Hopefully xwrapped tokens soon and Metal Pay running on Proton Chain one day. That's what we mean when we say Proton is a whole ecosystem. One day we will have all our funds, crypto or fiat in Metal custodial and non-custodial wallets.
Any comments and suggestions are more than welcome. You can find us on Twitter, Telegram as well as Reddit. Thank you for supporting ProtonUK.
