Loser Club NFTs Celebrate Non-Conformity and Spontaneous Activity
The Loser Club NFTs are the creation of ‘Todd Nebula’ (J’von), who was ‘clearly never cool’. His goal is to sell art, put money back to the holders, and create ‘a hub for all losers to commune and create together’.
Loser Club is rooted in the degen philosophy of being contrarian. The Loser Club NFT website says:
We’re bohemian hedonists. We celebrate non-conformity and spontaneous creativity.
For real raw artwork, the real utility is behind getting to know the artist and it is the people who determine value.
Loser club is deeply rooted in contrarianism. A reflection of the present day. Being a degen.
Let’s be the new majority. It’s the loser’s time.
