Heyyo CryptoNY community! Nothing about me can be summed up by “a little bit”. I’ve lived a lot of lives in my short 35 yrs that comes with unique experience and perspective. From gogo dancer, to bank teller; bartender to Fine jewelry Merchandiser I’ve done it all. There’s no situation you can throw at me I won’t try to figure out and I’m a glutton for new information. I’m a Central NY native & have been seeking all the experiences here in NYC since 2010. I’m never sick of waking up here & diving into the streets for inspiration, stories and tattoos from Smith Street. I work to travel, get tattooed and take care of my rescue doggie Timmy. If I’m chosen for this CrypNY I’ll bring my upstate work ethic with that Bing Bong energy!!!

CNY Qualifications:

  1. Born and raised in the NY Metro Area. NY Red Bull season ticket holder since 2008.

  2. My goals for being in the NFT space include: a) join great projects/communities and hold for the long term. b) make my NFT portfolio reflect my vision for the future. c) learn and grow as an individual along with the community. I believe that bright moments checks these marks by uniquely blending NFTs, on chain generative art, and real life minting experience to grow a tight knit community that I aspire to be a part of.

  3. I’m an active member in SquiggleDAO. Part of our mission is growing the prevalence of NFTs ans generative art in our culture. This alights with BMs mission and would allow for great networking of ideas. Would be awesome to do some sort of collaboration some day.

Crypto New Yorkers / CryptoCitizens were the first NFT project that I could see myself in. I’ve loved visiting the IRL galleries in Venice and NYC, and I want to continue to immerse myself in and be an evangelist for the community as BM goes around the world. I’m particularly excited about the potential Seoul expansion 👀👀

I’m Elio, I’ll be 3 months old next week! My mom is a born and bred Berliner. My dad and her moved to nyc in 2018 and I was made there, but born in Venice in September. I have never wanted to be part of a community this bad! My parents say I have diamond hands, but I don’t know what that means tbh. I’ll also be bilingual in English and German so let me know if you need help for the Berliners ✌️

I am Slavalava, a fellow adventurer in the jungles of time and space. The mission of my heart, is that all can live in grace. Foolish enough to believe it can be done.Wise enough to know it will take many fools.
My fools. I know that they are out there. Born in Brooklyn, my flesh a New Yorker, my soul galactic. This truth led the escape from the closed community of my youth. Where female perspective is unseen and unheard. I carry a sweetness and wisdom that is rare. I long to share. As each galactic ship docks in New York, I arrive to greet it. Encapsulated in these words, the sonic beam of my heart. As you read this, can you feel it? Flash your heart-beam. I will delight in our happy reunion IRL on December 31, 2021. With Love, Sxx

I moved to New York from Puerto Rico last year looking for new professional and personal opportunities. I had meet great people who introduced me to blockchain tech and NFTs. One thing that I notice about this space is that is not as diverse as the NYC is. I feel like is important to see more minorities in this space and that theres content that reaches that audience in a way that connects with them. I would like to be that person within this great community.

I am a huge supporter of nfts and cryptocurrency in general. Bought ethereum for the first time in 2017 and have been interested in the space ever since. A friend of mine onboarded me to NFTs in early 2021 and I’ve wanted to be a part of the bright moments community since seeing the release of CryptoVenetians. I grew up in New York and recently moved back up to NYC so owning a CryptoNewYorker would be a dream come true.

Between getting my coffee and bagel from the corner deli and walking a mile a minute to intimidate the visiting tourists, I try to find time to step out of my comfort zone. NFT’s and crypto is a whole new world for me that I thought best to jump in the deep end.

While walking that thin line of being “that guy” that talks about crypto all the time and not giving financial advice, I truly believe I can be an advocate for this shift to a digital yet IRL space.

As a machine learning engineer, I believe there’s a ton left to explore for generative art.

As part of the Crypto Citizens community, I hope to bring a lot more individuals to the space and show it’s much more than just a jpeg; even though the jpeg is fire (shout-out to Qian Qian)!

I am a graphic designer working in the NYC metro area, who has recently discovered crypto through a family member. I've been finding myself falling into this new Alice in wonderland world of NFTs and it is large, trippy, beautiful, and fascinating. The avenues of expression are endless and I would love to be part of this world. Additionally, getting a Crypto NYC would hold a special place in my heart, being that I was born in Brooklyn, NYC. I recently went to one of your IRL mintings and have got to say the location and venue are neat. It was nice to experience an amazing process. Also, I took a look at your Crypto print flyer. Although I have to admit it's fly, I can hook you up if you need some extra help with content info flyers.

I’ve visited the Bright Moments gallery and have been impressed every time. Everyone has been exceptionally welcoming and passionate about NFTs, which is exactly how I’d describe myself. This project is the coolest I’ve come across since living in nyc and would love to spread the news about it to my community of friends who are also passionate about nfts and watch this world grow.

I'd like to nominate my brother, Cody, the Executive Director of The American Academy of Arts & Letters in NYC. Cody is a writer and artist, but still an NFT skeptic. I believe that if my brother was part of the Crypto New Yorker family, then it would help bring him around to the legitimacy of NFTs, and help bolster the acceptance of NFTs within the greater fine art community.

With so much changing in the world, you either move with the trends or get left behind. 2021 is the start of my crypto and NFT journey and I'm super excited to see what's in store for the future.

As a recent graduate of Columbia's Masters of Public Health program and a peaked interest in blockchain technologies, I believe there is a future where healthcare and the blockchain can coexist. Healthcare records should be non-fungible tokens; a Crypto Citizen should have somewhere of storing their records on-chain right?

I'm excited to be part of a DAO to bounce these ideas around and hopefully bring them to life one day.

tl;dr: I love dogs and a snowy NYC day.

I work on corporate governance tools for trad fi and am well positioned to help companies adopt this new form of governance to give their communities more Say.

I believe strongly in the idea of a digital representation of “citizenship” and will glean from crypto citizens to inform the development of the corporate citizen version

I am 20 years old, born in Egypt but grew up in NYC for the past 10 years. We moved to the USA with nothing and my parents worked 50-80 hour weeks in order to provide for our families. They provided me with opportunities that I wouldn’t have been able to have. I was able to learn about NFTs a few months ago. That experience had changed my life. I am now able to thing more critically about projects and be able to research teams and projects and find good projects to invest in. I believe in this project long term and I am looking forward to learning from other NFT enthusiasts that are a part of this project. Thank you for this opportunity.

This seems like a close knit community, but it was out of my price range. I had to give this a shot!

Zeph is neighbor of mine here in brooklyn - Legendary graffiti artist, painter, designer, creator. Zeph is NOT a crypto native which is why i wanted to nominate him. I think it would be great to bring in more creative folks from the traditional art/creative world. Aside from his talents, Zeph is a wonderful person and would be a great creative mind to add to the pool of creative talents already doing work at Bright Moments.

His work and bio speak on his behalf better than I can. see link below
