It’s good it’s art – NFTs are perceived as a big scam for some, and as a real breakthrough for others, a technology to be seen and known. Beeple is part of the second category.
For the artist, the future is on Solana
Mike “Beeple” Winkelman is a artist known and recognized in the art world, and in that of Non-Fungible Tokens. He is considered the most rated NFT artist in the world thanks to his digital creations (or not).
One of his works, Beeple’s EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS, has thus sold for more than 69 million dollars in 2021. This amount places it on the first place of the podium of the most expensive NFT sales in history. And, it is also the 3ᵉ largest sale of works of art by a living artist.
Its arrival in the Solana ecosystem is therefore an extraordinary event. It was announced with great fanfare by Stephen Hess, CEO of Metaplex Studio. At the origin of the Solana NFT standard, the studio took advantage of a conference in Lisbon to highlight the artist.
” In partnership with the Render Network, we are delighted to welcome Beeple to Metaplex and Solana. This will kick off the future of streaming and immersive 3D NFTs.»
Platform users will be able to have fun creating an NFT with a series of sets and objects, drawn by Beeple himself. Series of contests will be launched to reward the most sympathetic creations.
Beeple recently announced that he wanted his works to have real utility. That they are not limited to a purely speculative market. Few details were given on the partnership between the artist and the ecosystem Solanabut new information will undoubtedly arrive this week.
Before NFTs, think about the fundamentals: Bitcoin and Ethereum! Shelter your cryptos from the current economic turpitudes by storing them on a Ledger key. Boost for your purchasing power, take advantage of 10% reduction for the purchase of a Nano S or Nano X (commercial link).
