Ashley Crossland Earns Almost £500,000 in NFT Sale

Ashley Crossland, a graphic designer from Cardigan, Ceredigion, has seen a huge development in his artistic career as a result of the astonishing sale of his collection of digital artwork which totalled almost £500,000 in a prominent cryptocurrency named Cardano ADA. The accomplishment has rapidly solidified him as one of Wales’ most financially successful artists.

In a remarkable display of creativity, Ashley Crossland created a collection called Stag Alliance which features anthropomorphized deer and is comprised of 7,500 distinct digital artworks, each of which was purchased as an NFT. Following the general sale, which spanned two days towards the end of March, several individual pieces from the collection have been resold, demanding prices as high as the Cardano ADA equivalent of £6,500.

The exponential growth of NFTs has captivated both digital artists and collectors alike and the phenomenal success of Ashley Crossland’s collection highlights the tremendous influence that NFTs can have on the creative sector and signals a turning point in the history of art.

“NFT technology is often misunderstood but as our lives become more immersed in digital technology the desire to own unique digital art is growing. It’s an exciting sphere to be creating art and digital experiences in.” – Ashley Crossland, artist and co-founder.

With thousands of passionate supporters from around the globe who relish collecting digital art and immersing themselves in captivating narratives, Ashley, along with co-founder and childhood friend Jameel Sandham, aspires to create a fantasy world named the Elderworld that millions can enjoy, featuring art, literature, and interactive web experiences.

“We want to continue this momentum and create a fantasy world as well known as the best ones out there. The NFTs will give collectors access to our interactive web experiences and that makes them more dynamic than physical art.” – Jameel Sandham, author and co-founder.

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are like special certificates of ownership for unique digital items such as artwork and collectibles. Using blockchain technology, NFTs ensure that these digital assets are one-of-a-kind and can’t be duplicated. They also allow creators to attach special rules, like earning royalties from future sales, and offer a way for artists to monetize their work.
