Multipass Expansion - Artist + Collector Interaction

There is an growing problem of artists having hard time getting discovered on curated nft platforms and have trouble finding collectors for their artworks.
There is a need for a services that lets the artists and collectors to connect easily without need for shilling on social media and gives equal opportunity for artists to be found that are not able to be vocal in twitter spaces, live events etc.
Museums have always served as places for collectors to discover new artists so MOCA feels like the right place for this.

This service would list profiles of collectors and artists and would enable easily browsing through them using tags, artwork thumbnails, similar galleries etc.
It would enable commenting on artworks, sending dm's (maybe through blockscan chat?) Following others and getting updates on favorite artists / collectors (followers could be visible only to user).

What else you think would be useful for you in this type of service, either as an artist or collector?
