Miami, Florida, December 17, 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, The return of Art Basel this year ushered in a new technological era with the integration of NFTs into the art world and BitBasel is at the forefront of all of this.
The new importance of NFT was widely displayed during Miami Art Week.
Collectors, artists, crypto engineers, and architects have come together in what has traditionally been a physical epicenter of artistic culture to bring the digital community into the art world. While an NFT can be used to show ownership of anything, the first and most visible use case to date has been for digital art.
The convergence of virtual and physical art was notably seen when you walked into the famous art hotel, The Sagamore, during the BitBasel + BitDAO takeover and witnessed a Portl holographic box. of digital creations. BitBasel’s crypto-focused events invited visitors to learn more about emerging cultural trends and educate people on how NFTs are having a real impact on science, education, music, art and more. the fashion.

With the use of NFTs, digital creations can travel to new frontiers whereas before, shipping canvases would have been prohibitively expensive. Dr Sian Proctor’s ‘Seeker’ piece traveled to the depths of the farthest ocean, the Mariana Pit, submerged to visit the ruins of the Titanic, and radiated into orbit on @ Inspiration4x sold for 22 ETH (~ $ 100k) during BitBasel’s live auction the proceeds of which will be donated to St. Judes Children’s Hospital.
Works like this depict a time in history when we can all participate in the advancement of our civilization to explore space. Blockchain technology allows for the first time equal investment opportunities in this sector. For example, by symbolizing space freight, Copernicus Space allows access to an industry of around 500 billion dollars without privilege.

Tokens for the preservation of the oceans
Leveraging the power of NFTs, ocean conservation activists were on board to explain how the Metaverse saves marine life, coral reefs and defends biodiversity. Representatives from Seaworthy, MoonjellyDAO, Oceans Rescue Alliance, Oceanic Global, OCN.AI, ULTRAMARINE, DopeSea and NFT Blue gathered and spoke about catalyzing solutions to Earth’s biggest problems. Adopting distributed networks with full transparency of financial records could very well be our chance to get on the right track to save our planet.
Technological education and civic engagement
To harness the full potential of this new technology, education is essential. BitBasel hosted MiamiCoin, the first CityCoin with Stacks, stxnft, okcoin and Moonray to raise awareness of a vision of applying blockchain technology to urban solutions, such as giving a voice to citizens through Miami Voice DAO. A panel of more than two dozen highly skilled engineering, academic and artist leaders discussed how NFTs empower community, engage residents while improving the quality of life in the city of Miami and beyond.
Proof of authenticity of NFTs in fashion and culture
Physical objects can be linked to NFTs by being cryptographically signed as an immutable metadata file describing the work. In Frida Kahlo’s family metaverse, the physical brick of the foundation of the Red House (Frida’s family home) has been transformed into an NFT establishing authenticity. Ezel.life presented a preview of the inclusive metaverse space of the Red House at the BitBasel Gallery. During the evening of Latin Arts and Culture, special guest Marloe Rosado, winner of two Grammy Awards, made an appearance. A few lucky collectors have acquired limited GiclÃ©e memorabilia hand-signed by Saul “Canelo” lvarez. Works by painter Rob Prior, Art Prior’s ‘Canelo’ painting, as well as other NFT artists on display were on sale.

Like art, NFTs allow musicians a new source of income from residual payments and convert their productions into collectibles, as well as split music shares in the same way as owning stock.
Kicking off the entertainment and networking portion of the evening, the pool deck was brought to life with 11-time Grammy-winning hip hop artists Busta Rhymes and producer Murda Beatz waiting to take the stage. In co-production with BitBasel and sponsors Vera, Devco and BitDao, the event celebrated the launch of Vera’s mainnet which made history by becoming the first protocol to successfully lease a $ 1.5 million NFT. .
