The Bootstrapped Founder Collection is an NFT project by Arvid Kahl. It was a web3 experiment that merges visual art with non-fiction writing.

Arvid found the ten most highlighted parts of his first book, Zero to Sold, and wrote them out, by hand, on a piece of paper. He then digitized those manuscript fragments, turned them into appealing visuals, and released them as NFTs on OpenSea.

You can check out the collection at OpenSea.

Arvid officially launched the collection in October, 2021. He quickly got two bids – however discovered that the mining fees meant that he was likely to lose money. He unlisted them from the Ethereum Chain and re-listed them on the Polygon chain.

He only sold one out of the ten NFTs.
