When it comes to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), it’s easy to think that only adults or individuals with technical backgrounds can understand it. But with Enjin's seamless platform and interface, Luisina, an eleven year old from Argentina has ventured into the exciting world of Web3.
“In Enjin, art and technology make amazing things possible. I hope my story inspires others to join this incredible journey!”
Luisina appears like your everyday daughter. She likes to draw, play video games, and share these hobbies of hers with other people. But with an open-mind and positive encouragement from others, she’s embracing emerging technology.
“Since I was 9 years old, I discovered something incredible: I can create NFTs with my drawings! I'm really excited about how technology and art can come together,” she narrated.
Through the Space Misfits community, she encountered Endar, the other half of Axiomech. Endar organized a contest where Luisina won the top prize - an NFT spaceship. More importantly this was a newfound friendship as Endar’s wife eventually became Luisina’s English teacher.
Luisina desperately wanted more chances to express her artistic side and bond with fellow lovers of art and technology. With this, she saw the opportunity of sharing her art in a special way on Enjin.
“NFTs gave me a new and exciting way to bring my drawings to life. Now, I can create unique digital pieces that people can view and collect online.”
Luisina’s journey in Enjin can be highlighted as “The Power of Collaboration.”
“I've been fortunate to be part of the Enjin community by collaborating with other artists and streamers. I've met new people and had great experiences. Our group is special because we all love creativity, innovation, and blockchain technology.”
Through her father’s connections, Luisina dove deeper into the world of NFTs. With his friend Eirik the Viking’s help, she was able to turn her drawing of a “Cosmic Cat” into her first ever NFT, releasing it on EnjinX (the predecessor to NFT.io).
Her first release was successful enough that family members jumped on the Enjin train.
“Even relatives who had never heard of blockchain installed the (Enjin) wallet on their phones just to have my drawing,” Luisina happily said.
Further collaboration with Enjin community members followed.
Luisina worked together with Asantos for Eden’s Garden. Through this process, she realized that the Enjin community was not only about the NFTs, but also the harmony of mixing and matching everyone’s unique perspectives and ideas.
“Enjin helped me create my own NFTs and introduced me to many passionate people who love creativity and innovation. I'm super excited to keep connecting with others through my creations and see how the Web3 world continues to grow. The future looks amazing and full of exciting things!” Luisina recalled.
Currently, Luisina is having fun exploring Enjin’s many tools and features.
“Though I haven't used the Beam feature yet, I'm excited to try it in the future. I believe it will help me showcase my drawings on social media and connect with people who love art and technology,” she said, intrigued by Beam, Enjin’s proprietary QR code distribution system.
Distributing her artwork through Enjin Beam would entail a simple process of generating a QR code which interested collectors can scan with the Enjin Wallet app to claim her NFTs. This has made creating and sharing NFTs easier than ever and everyone from all ages can participate.
With Enjin Beam, Luisina would be able to distribute NFTs via a variety of accessible mediums ranging from traditional outlets like posters and prints to digital outlets such as X and Telegram. This method could be integrated as well on her friends’ streams where she currently holds giveaways.
With a goal of sharing her drawings to people all around the world, Enjin has been there every step of the way.
“While the process can be a bit challenging, Enjin has made it easier.”
Luisina’s story is one of courage and openness. It takes bravery to enter a new world as a young child, but she has shown us that despite the challenges that appeared along the way, Enjin has provided her a supportive platform and community that guides her towards her dream.
“If you're thinking about joining the Enjin community, I want to tell you that it's a place where your passions can shine, and you can make lots of new friends. Together, we're creating an exciting world where art, technology, and community come together.”
