Andrius Bartminas

CTO & CIO

Where a passion for blockchain and new technologies can bring a person or a company?

My answer is: to the place no one has ever been before.

This is the exact reason why I’ve been researching blockchain and implementing large-scale innovative projects for 10 years now.

This is also the reason how innovation-based companies such as SUPER HOW, LARED, and many others were created.

My goal is to help businesses stand out from the competition by going places competitors haven’t been before. How exactly do we do that?

1. Conduct market research and prepare a plan, prototypes, or any other innovation-related object; 2. Provide support while implementing this innovation; 3. Measure the results, consult and adjust the strategies to meet long-term company goals and future innovations.

My mission, as a blockchain researcher and a visionary, is: 

  • To share my knowledge in an understandable and easy manner; 
  • To become your technology partner you can rely on;
  • To share my expertise publicly, by speaking in conferences, webinars, etc.;
  • To participate in private, public, or governmental projects to create and integrate technology;
  • To research blockchain to reveal its transformative potential and help adapt this strategy in everyday business.

My decisions are driven and guided through 3 prisms: future of education, investment, effective use of resources and sustainable development.

Nonso Nwagbo

Content Writer

According to HubSpot, inbound marketing is an effective strategy among 74% of global brands.

A study by Content Marketing Institute revealed that 91% and 86% of B2B and B2C marketers respectively, rely on content marketing as a formidable strategy for driving sales.

Both studies show that effective content marketing has shifted from dishing out “harassing” cold content to offering true value to prospects and customers while observing best SEO practices.

I’m Nonso Nwagbo and I’m an Inbound-cum-Content Marketer.

In reflection of my 4+ years of professional experience, I employ inbound methodology and principles to create great content strategies, topic clusters, and well-optimized content that can provide optimum value for your target audience and drive conversions.

Although my client base cuts across different industries, I specialize in offering content marketing services for blockchain brands.

Let’s create value together!

Arvin Khamseh

Senior NFT Advisor and Consultant

In 2021, many tech-savvy and art-inclined individuals were excited to become a part of the NFT industry. A good half were interested in buying pieces from their favorite as well as up-and-coming artists, while the others were the creators who constantly had to put out content to make a living off the space.

However, not all artists have the knowledge and experience to market their pieces online. This is where Arvin Khamseh comes in. In the short time he’s leveraged the NFT industry, he has worked with more than 300 NFT brands to help them advertise their pieces- make sure you check out his thoughts at Twitter.

As tech-savvy as he is, Arvin knows that getting into a new tech industry can be challenging, especially for people who have yet to understand its basics. Here are tips on how aspiring individuals can get into the NFT space.

Tips From a Pro


One of the things to remember is that the NFT industry is not for everyone. At times, it can be very high pressure as things can happen rapidly.

If someone is not into that vibe they should either prepare themselves mentally or choose a role within the industry that matches their personality best,” Arvin said.

Another thing to remember is to make the most out of the lucrative industry. Those who know how to leverage the platform can earn a hefty sum and fully see what NFTs have to offer.

Meanwhile, Arvin said that a relevant part of getting into the NFT industry is to buy and sell a lot of NFTs.

It’s getting into the investor mindset that allows for creating successful campaigns,” he said.

Lastly, Arvin said that one of the most relevant things to keep in mind is to find a mentor who can guide them through challenges and advise them in making the right decisions.

Find Some Time to Relax
As Arvin mentioned, the NFT industry can be fast-paced and demanding, which often takes a lot out of people. However, he believes that people like him should also take some time off to take care of themselves.

He suggests taking a vacation to unwind and get a fresh perspective on things. Spending time with the people that matter can also help in making someone feel re-energized to chase their dreams anew.

So even though Arvin works as the founder and CEO of Sold Out NFTs, he makes sure to spend time where he can just focus on himself and becoming better.
