There are many pieces that have to come together to make an NFT community successful.  One of those pieces is education.  Youtuber Blake CNFT, like many of his peers, has been an essential part of the educational structure of the ecosystem.  Blake was one of the first channels I watched when I got into Cardano NFTs.

I wanted to know more about how he came to be a major influencer in the CNFT space, and one of the first things I wanted to know was how he got into Cardano.

Blake told me, “I got into blockchain in December 2020 after hearing from a trusted friend that he was getting into it. I found Cardano quickly after that and witnessed firsthand the launching of native assets on March 1st, 2021. I didn’t mint Space Budz but I got into CardanoBits in April, for my first mint.”

With a background in education, it was inevitable that he’d take the next step in his love for helping others learn. So, after working his way around the budding NFT sector for several months, he decided to start a Youtube channel.  He thought that he had good knowledge of Cardano NFTs, and he thought he’d have a perspective people would be interested in.  He told me “I needed an outlet to share what I was learning in Cardano and NFTs”.  Blake knew he “could help promote/interview projects that I thought were worthwhile in the space.”

He definitely does his homework.  Content creation is a time-intensive proposition that, if done well, takes a lot more time than you’d think. It’s a job, and you can tell by the way he talks that he takes the job seriously.  He said “I think most people have a romanticized view of being a “YouTuber”, but it comes with a lot of responsibility and effort, on top of having a family and a full-time job.”. 

Blake wouldn’t feel like he was positively contributing if he didn’t put his full effort into the channel.  Coming up with an idea for a show is just the beginning. He then has to research, talk to projects, and schedule any guests, before streaming or filming the show.  Blake even produces his own thumbnails.  He said, “I love doing all of those things, it’s just a constant balance of time in relation to others things I have in my life.”

It All Comes Together With Cardanocentric Content

Blake CNFT hosts a weekly market update that goes through the top projects of the week in Cardano NFTs.  He offers his analysis, his perspective on each project, and it’s thought out in advance.  Blake also posts many videos about news, specific projects, new mints, and anything else he thinks his audience will be interested in.  He has also produced sponsored content, but because I’ve seen him justly criticize some of the projects he’s covering, even his paid content shows authenticity.

Recently, Blake CNFT posted a really informative presentation for Cardano NFT newcomers.  It was a live stream, which I thought was great because it gave newcomers the chance to see the Cardano community in action.  The video was a great primer for any beginner in their first interaction with the ecosystem, and I’ll share it with my friends that are serious about getting into NFTs.

When you catch him on a stream, Blake is very interactive with his guests and more importantly, his viewers.  Most good creators do this, but he’s very adept at not only going to the chat but also knowing the right time to do it.

Blake CNFT’s View Of The NFT Market In 2025

It’s really not fair to ask someone to prognosticate so far in the future. Of course, I did it anyway.

Blake told me “because I’m so bullish on Cardano as a blockchain, I see the NFTs doing extremely well. Even now we’re seeing glimpses of what larger adoption looks like for Cardano NFTs, and I only think our reach is going to get wider.”  He also has an optimistic outlook for the future of Cardano as a whole. “The FUD starts to melt away and people being to realize that Cardano has a lot to offer when it comes to Realfi, Defi, NFTs, and more.”

Since he’s a content creator himself, I wanted to give Blake a chance to tell CNFT Readers anything he wanted them to know about him and his channel.  I liked what he replied with so much, I decided to publish his entire response:

I just want people to know that I’m just a regular guy that has a passion for Cardano and it’s NFT scene.  I’m not a whale, and I don’t have tens of thousands of dollars to spend on NFTs. I love making videos and interviewing projects/people that are helping the space grow.  I also love my community and want to thank them for enjoying the content.

My background is in education so that’s why I love teaching and educating people about Cardano and NFTs.

My Christian faith is also very important to me. It’s one of the reasons why blockchain technology and the idea of decentralization caught my attention. I believe that every person has the right to share their opinion and have a voice even if you disagree with them”

Why Content Creators Like Blake CNFT Are Necessary For Growth

Crypto Twitter rules, but for those that need a deeper dive than 280 words and a short-form video can deliver, many searches out Youtube to get more in-depth DYOR.  Channels like Blake’s are required to help spread the word about CNFTs.

I’m very proud of the people we have spreading the Cardano Gospel to the masses. The channels are all positive, and they offer a diversity of education and perspectives.  There seems to be a comradery and I hope that continues.

Blake CNFT is a veteran content creator, and he has learned his trade well.  He demonstrates his knowledge of the community on a consistent basis, and always gives his honest opinion on the subject he discusses. When you’re doing research on a project and go to Youtube for answers, you can’t really ask for more than that.
