There was some scuttlebutt two weeks ago. One of the shark tank folks discussed paying artists who do this work a lot of money. He put businesspeople and coders as now getting less pay.
Side note. I just studied UAE average spend on NFTs about $400 per year. The US is $900 almost. The heart of the industry is NYC which would be above that $900 in spending. For fine art concepts, they want much higher than $900. Just switched my ads in the wee hours.
