I think we can all agree that $ 23.5 million is quite a lot. You can buy an expensive villa, 4 sports cars, live with dignity for the rest of your life and still have something in your accounts. However, there are different priorities and values in life, and what is a funny picture for some, for others can be an investment worth a small fortune. Ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about this piece of art:
Probably many of you associate Mateico with an innovative NFT platform. Today we are proud to announce our new protege that will allow us to motivate artists, their work and bring help to those in need. We have founded a foundation that will work on three pillars. We will provide a special platform so that each of you can participate in our way of helping by jointly dropping money for specific purposes.
We often think that being an artist is a great business. Passive income with royalties, crowds of fans in front of the stage, sitting in the studio, and making music in a good atmosphere. Work hard, play hard as the saying goes. The reality, however, in most cases differs from such a picture. This is due to the fact that the production of high-quality music is expensive and the music industry itself is pretty monopolized.
Metaverse - the word is growing in popularity, and so is its value. The non-fungible token (NFT) market is opening up to luxury brands looking to invest in their digital collections. As it turns out, the demand for digital fashion is there and doing well, and the biggest evolution of the fashion industry is yet to come.
In one of the last articles, we wrote about augmented reality and how it can improve our lives in the future. The next questions which we will ask are how do artists use it and how does the audience react to it? In other words - you do not need to have a master's degree in computer science in order to create such art.
One small step for technology is one giant leap for art. Building an artistic future in a digital world.
Mostly we associate art with “oil on canvas” like Stańczyk hanging in The National Museum in Warsaw or “Profile of time” by Salvador Dalí, which once upon a time was standing in front of Wrocław Sky Tower. However, along with the development of the technological world, art also found its place in the virtual space. What does contemporary art look like in the era of digitization, and what will its future hold?
The creative process has been the same since the dawn of time. An idea is born in the head, and then with the help of colors, sounds, or words is transferred from the mind of the creator to the world of mortals. So far, technology has supported creators primarily by providing tools that allow them to create abstract things, such as 3D animation. However, there were no methods of selling them effectively, especially when it comes to unique and unrepeatable works, such as paintings - until recently.
“In a room full of art, I’d still stare at you”, everything you need to know about NFT in the artists’ world
NFT (a non-fungible token) is in other words a unique representation of a resource or a product appearing in the form of a virtual token. A cryptographic record helps to verify the ownership and authenticity of the NFT. Although first mentioned in 2012, it only gained popularity five years later.
