Why JetSetFly is an Indispensable Expert in Digital Marketing and the NFT Space

Internet marketing is among today’s most effective tools business owners and brands utilize to stay on top of their game. There’s no other way to reach consumers as efficiently as through innovative digital marketing strategies. 

Despite only being in the industry for less than a decade, Josh King Madrid, also known as JetSetFly, has already gained unparalleled success, even more than those who entered the industry earlier than he did. As the world moves closer to the new digital frontier through NFTs and cryptocurrency, JetSetFly did not miss the opportunity to ride the wave, adding his NFT platform to his avenues of helping business owners and creators reach their goals through rigorous information dissemination and marketing in the online realm.

Over the last six years, JetSetFly has built multiple seven-figure companies and e-commerce brands. He has served nearly 14,000 customers, and the brands he has stood behind for years have collectively generated over $20 million in online sales. He made his first million at the young age of 19 after dropping out of college to pursue his passion of being an entrepreneur. Five years later, at 24 years old, JetSetFly is officially one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the online marketing space and is now a multi-millionaire. 

Expanding its horizons further, JetSetFly began to dabble into the world of NFTs in 2021, when the market experienced its epic boom. He started as a neuro-marketing consultant for three different NFT brands. Through his new role, he was able to help the companies gain over $10 million in NFT sales within the first 45 days. As he implemented innovative and efficient strategies for his clients, it didn’t take long before the entrepreneur gained the trust and confidence of industry leaders and NFT creators worldwide.

In addition, he also saw a gap in the NFT space. JetSetFly saw how holders struggle to keep up with the latest updates in the NFT space. Hence, he decided to build a central platform,, containing news and stories of NFT alpha on the Web3 environment. provides its global audience with the latest news, market updates, and stories on NFTs, cryptocurrency, and blockchain technology. As the world’s leading news source for anything NFT, the platform has grown its following since day one, and the number continues to rise every day. also provides audiences with NFT alerts on the latest drops, podcasts, and insights into the latest events within the NFT space.

Despite experiencing massive success today, JetSetFly remains humbled by the failures that molded him into the man he is today. Having his fair share of challenges, including being betrayed by people he trusted the most, required a lot of courage for him to continuously get back on his feet. But every time life threw a pressing circumstance on his path, he approached them with a winning mindset and decided, right there and then, that he would not allow his failures to stop him from reaching his full potential. 

“I think it is very important to treat everything in life as a win, no matter how big or small it may be. Once you get used to winning as a habit, you’ll never accept it as a loss. Things will start to always go in your favor,” said the entrepreneur. 

Kris Adams and Marketplace.City Work to Revolutionize Local Governments, Community Organizations, and Small Businesses Across the Country

The most well-intentioned public servants often find themselves elected to local office, seeking to bring positive change to the communities they love. Once elected, these well-meaning community leaders run into a lack of time, funding, and institutional prowess that commonly prevents them from fully meeting their constituents’ needs.

Kris Adams has seen this problem first-hand. He knows local governments and municipalities should have access to the best services at the best value for their constituents. This is why Kris partnered with Chris Foreman to have access to a platform that connects public servants with scalable technologies and solutions.

As the internet expands beyond computers and smartphones to include nearly every device we use, Marketplace.City is here to bring cutting-edge tech to even the smallest municipalities. It helps governments source, validate, and procure technology solutions to bridge the gap between small-town budgets and big-city amenities. Marketplace builds coalitions based on needs, identifies funding opportunities, and creates relationships with service providers.

“Our mission is to simplify the process for local governments to source, validate, and procure new technology, so that governments can be responsive to their constituents and focus on their core mission to serve those constituents,” said Foreman. “Our products are developed with input and feedback from our partner cities, and we are committed to delivering valuable tools at no cost to government partners.”

Marketplace.City was launched to bring local public servants together with scalable service providers through coalitions. They work with any town, city, or country government to optimize resources and provide constituents with the most services and best value. Marketplace.City collaborates with Chief Technology Officers, Chief Information Officers, City Managers, and elected officials.

“For more than a decade, I have built coalitions between governments, non-profit organizations, community groups, and other stakeholders throughout the United States,” said DDA Associates co-founder Kris Adams. “In that process, I identified a disturbing common thread. Localities consistently lack the institutional knowledge and established processes to procure services in a way that provides the best value for their constituents. Too often, these communities have an antiquated system with pre-approved winners for proposals. This leads to rampant mismanagement of taxpayer funds, mistrust of local leadership, and loss of opportunity for growth and prosperity.”

“We will continue to grow as we help the most forward-thinking communities identify and capitalize on the relationships that will help them best serve their current and future stakeholders,” he added.

Javier Bardem Stirs the Pot for Dune Sequel, Says It Will “Surprise” People

When news of Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune started circulating, fans of the beloved novel couldn’t wait to see the film. Less than a week after it hit the theaters, a sequel received the green light, giving long-time and new fans of Dune something to be excited about.

The first movie had already featured a star-studded cast with Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, and Jason Momoa, to name a few, and the Dune: Part 2 will continue to see its roster of talents increase as Javier Bardem, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, and Christopher Walken.

While the actors’ names already provided enough excitement, Javier Bardem added fuel to the fire, sharing that he read the script for the sequel and believes it will “surprise” people.

Bardem will reprise the role of Stilgar, the leader of the Fremen tribe where Zendaya’s Chani originates from. Towards the end of the movie, the Fremen tribe greeted Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and his mother Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) after escaping a coup.

During a Q&A at the Cannes Film Festival, Bardem shared his enthusiasm for Dune: Part 2.

“I’ve read the new draft, and I think they’ve done an amazing job of putting together the pieces in a way that is gonna surprise people,” he revealed. “They won’t be surprised [by what happens] obviously, because they’ve read the book, but they’ll be surprised by the way they put it together. I was very moved by it. It’s a movie that is full, and you can feel the weight of it, and at the same time [you can enjoy] the specularity of it. [I can’t wait] to go back to the desert with those people, and I’m so happy to go back with [director] Denis [Villeneuve], who is one of the greatest directors ever. He’s a lovely man.”

As Bardem mentioned, fans already have an idea of what’s to come, but director Villeneuve will be introducing a more cinematic element to the Frank Herbert adaptation. 

“The difference is just that Dune: Part One, of course, is like an introduction to a world where we explain who is who, who is doing what, and what is the technology? What is the culture here?” said the director in an interview last year. “The second movie, I think, will be an opportunity to have much more fun. In a way, it will be more cinematic.”
