Pinterest employee #1 launches blockchain art market MakersPlace

Pinterest is a great place to find digital art but a terrible place to sell it. Yash Nelapati saw this struggle up close as Pinterest's first employee. "At Pinterest, we noticed that there are millions of digital creators that are spending countless hours creating digital artwork, but they struggle with basic things like attribution" says MakersPlace co-founder Dannie Chu who spent six years leading growth engineering at Pinterest.
