SpottieWifi, also known as Miguel Mora, has been a musician all of his life. Similar to the late Pimp C, he grew up playing piano and singing in church, developing his core musician skills during weekly practices and services. As a football player in high school, Miguel found himself always freestyling in his spare time, and honed his craft by diligently carrying a notebook full of rhymes that would form the core elements of his early art. Following this, Spottie toured as the front man in several successful bands, but eventually found himself walking away from his musical performance career. Prior to NFTs, the music industry was a massive entity, requiring many moving parts and coordinated efforts in order to achieve a large following and financial stability. His passion for the art was one of deep commitment, but the realities of earning a sustainable income as a musician made it difficult for his art to bear the fruits from his labor.
In January of this year, Miguel started studying NBA Top Shot drops, and from there he decided to put all his eggs into one basket and purchase CryptoPunk (#5528). At the time, less than 200 of the 10,000 CryptoPunks had dots on their faces, undervalued because not many liked the dots. But Miguel had a vision, and what has occurred over the past six months has changed his life forever.
Following the purchase, he immediately networked with the Punks community and made it known that he was a musician by producing the CryptoPunks theme song. The Punks community was enthusiastic, and Spottie claimed the mantle as the first CryptoPunk rapper. He released a few singles over the spring and summer while developing a plan for the Spottie genesis token that dropped this past August. 2000 of them were made available for .03 ETH (valued at $96 USD at the time). They sold out within one minute, profiting $192k+. His next mission was to produce further collabs and features with other artists. Through his already established extensive network, Spottie connected with Bun B to create a new music NFT project with expanded offerings.
