SothSotheby’s launches Metaverse, a platform dedicated to digital art on the Blockchain
Sotheby’s launches Sotheby’s Metaverse, a new platform for digital collectors, offering a curated selection of NFTs chosen by auction house specialists.
The new marketplace aims to create a virtual collection for the most sought after NFTs, creating a curated selection.
On Sotheby’s Metaverse, buyers will have to create a personal profile and receive a unique avatar created by the digital artist Pak, and will be able to make payments in crypto or FIAT currency.
The launch of the platform takes place today 18 October in conjunction with the auction “Natively Digital 1.2: The Collectors” which features 53 works from 19 of the most well-known crypto collectors on the scene.
These include VerticalCrypto Art, Pablo Rodriguez-Fraile, Pranksy, 888, j1mmy.eth, Seedphrase and WhaleShark, DJ and producer Steve Aoki, heiress Paris Hilton and many others.
The link between the world of traditional art and NFT is getting stronger and runs at the speed of a transaction on the Blockchain.
Great expectations, however, for the announcement made via a tweet on the profile of the rival Christie’s who relaunches with “Arcadia” on 20 October.
