What’s next for Dirt?
Today we announced that we’re expanding Dirt into its own media company and brand. You can read the full press release here:
Over the past decade, we’ve watched the arc of digital media bend toward unsustainability. The people who suffered the most were the creatives — our friends and our peers. We are determined to build the media company that we want to see in the world, empowering artists, writers, and curators through the growing number of web3 tools. Dirt’s digital assets will fund a range of productions, but will also establish a consumer brand of their own.
Dirt’s expansion is backed by a group of top-tier investors who believe in Dirt and the promise of better distribution mechanisms for digital publications and their communities. We’ve signed on a core group of amazing freelance contributors and correspondents to keep this newsletter popping as we build out our operations over the next few months.

Starting something new is fun and scary. There were points in the past few years where it felt like there would never be anything “new” in media again. We’re grateful for all the members of the Dirtyverse that got us to this point and we’re excited to have the resources to bring you more of what you love about Dirt.
