John Salley and The Spark Network Built On Bitcoin

John Salley and NFTglee will launch The SPRK Network, built exclusively on Bitcoin, to unlock the freedom rights that have been taken by media conglomerates for decades. Celebrity tokens will now be associated with the ‘NIL’ (name, image, likeness) rights rather than unfair and upside-down contracts pilfered by Hollywood for far too long.

John Salley and Bitcoin

“Bitcoin is freedom. In consistently searching for avenues to empower myself and all of my friends, I’ve come to the conclusion that true ownership of our work is a must. Non- fungible tokens built on Bitcoin is the foundation of that opportunity.”

“Instead of intermediaries and entertainment industry roadblocks, I’ve found the key that unlocks the direct to consumer media and content model. The technology provides incredible upside and value to both the consumer and the creator – and more and more of us creators are beginning to see it.”

“I’m so excited to be a first mover in taking back what is ours… our work, our content, our names, ownership. And again, Bitcoin provides the rails by which we can connect directly with the public. I can’t wait to show everybody what’s to come!” – John Salley, 4- Time NBA Champion, Media Personality, and Wellness Advocate.

Name, Image, and Likeness NFT’s Surge

NFTglee’s newly hired President of Media and Entertainment, Jonah Hart, agrees with the explosion in NFT’s associated with content and media across the industry.

“The value proposition for the artist and their fans is unprecedented. I believe 2022 will prove to be a wave of mass adoption of NFT’s across the music and creator economy that will have labels and brands scrambling to keep up. The ability for artists to go directly to consumers with a remarkably better value proposition is powerful. John Salley and his network are on the cutting edge here, but we believe (and are already seeing) a wave of those like him ready to follow in his footsteps.”

The SPRK Network ‘Effect’ And Bitcoin

Building on Bitcoin continues to grab mindshare within celebrity and influencer communities. The Spark Network will capitalize on John Salley’s considerable talents; but also his ability to walk his celebrity colleagues through a narrative that allows them to be set free from the captivity of media conglomerates that do not have the artists’ best interest in mind.

The SPRK Network — which will be launched along with John’s partners, Greg RomanoRoss Mark, and Dr. Dan Ratner — is the first of its kind: a new streaming network that will be built exclusively on Bitcoin, to unlock the freedom rights that have been taken by media conglomerates for decades. Celebrity tokens will now be associated with the ‘NIL’ (name, image, likeness) rights rather than unfair and upside-down contracts pilfered by Hollywood for far too long. SPRK Network launches on 2/22/22 and will include channels on mind-body wellness, sports, cryptocurrency, education, documentaries, comedy specials, and original shows and movies.

“The SPRK Network is about making a one-to-one connection with consumers and fans, unlike anything that has been done in media. The artist is in complete control of their work, their revenue, and the ways in which they engage with consumers. The shackles are being removed here, and it’s so exciting.” – John Salley, 4-Time NBA Champion, Media Personality, and Wellness Advocate.

Specifically, The SPRK Network will issue NFT tokens directly to consumers that will give those individuals direct and unprecedented access to celebrities, artists, creators, and their content. Podcasts, AMA’s, reality tv series, concerts, appearances, experiences, and events – all facilitated by The SPRK Network token and series of tokens.

“We are passionate about giving creators and artists of every genre access to all of their value. No more friction, middlemen, or inflated costs. In many ways, this is the real-world application of ‘Bitcoin fixes this’ – a well-known phrase in the Bitcoin community. We are thrilled to have partnered with John Salley, whose been a voice of economic freedom in many areas.”

“We remain so impressed by his enthusiasm and energy to unlock incredible opportunities for his friends and colleagues across media and entertainment. 2022 is going to be a big year for NFT’s built on Bitcoin.” – Tillman Holloway, CEO NFTglee.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
