Barabási Creates First Network Visualization of NFT Market

Published by Leave your thoughts

In a guest essay for The New York Times (May 7, 2021), Albert Lászlo Barabási published a series of network visualizations based on the Super Rare NFT platform. The images reveal the extreme concentration of the NFT market at this early stage of its development, and they offer an opportunity for reflection on the evolving systems of art. This is a perfect moment for a network scientist who cares about art. The data on the blockchain is there for all to see and analyze. The results are not only stunning, but they offer a window into sociological, commercial, and ultimately aesthetic processes that we have never before attempted to grasp with data-driven empiricism.
