GODA will work with artists to leverage this new medium in a way that feels organic and true to their creative voices. GODA will also provide the ultimate user experience by allowing access to the best drops from a curated collection of renowned figures from the traditional art world as well as up-and-coming artists.

"We created GODA to enable the best contemporary artists to harness this new opportunity but do so on a platform that respects the world-class nature of their work, reputation, and accomplishments. We’re focused on creating an equitable entity in this creator-centric landscape, so everyone can feel good about GODA," explains founding member Pharrell Williams.

"GODA is invested in all aspects of the process of making an NFT project come to life. From ideation and creative process to completion and execution is within the framework of GODA. Our number one priority is to provide a space conducive to experimentation and release projects that are compelling and forever evolving," said Founder Nina Chanel Abney. "I’m excited to be a part of a community of artists and creatives that can share in the common goal of making timeless innovative projects that push the space forward."

I’ve been intrigued by the explosive growth of the NFT world and to be alongside this amazing team, we are primed together to take over the much-needed whitespace in the digital market," said Founder Shaun Neff.

GODA’s founding team includes contemporary artist Nina Chanel Abney, investor and entrepreneur Shaun Neff, recording artist, producer, songwriter, philanthropist, fashion designer and entrepreneur Pharrell Williams, gallery owner Todd Kramer, art collector Easy Otabor, investor Nick Adler, NFT collector and advisor J1mmy.Eth, among several others.
