The second, at Palazzo Ca 'Bernardo, will be dedicated to NFTs. This exhibition is organized by Global Crypto Art Dao, a collective that helps emerging crypto artists through the Dao community. The crypto-art segment will include over 30 artists from countries including China, Germany and the United States.
“PARTICIPATING IN THE CRYPT ART EXHIBITION AT THE VENICE BIENNALE WILL BE A HISTORICAL MILESTONE FOR EVERY KIND OF INDIVIDUAL AND INSTITUTION IN THE WORLD OF BLOCKCHAIN AND CRYPT ART”
points the Global Crypto Art Dao.
According to industry experts, many African artists harbor the hope that NFTs can challenge the current business model. An opportunity to gain direct access to international collectors.
Where we are
The crypto currency to which the project's NFTs can be linked
“THE TIME OF CHIMERE” will be Polygon.
Polygon is the most performing of the POS technology blockchains and consumes 0.1% of the energy needed by Ethereum and the other POW blockchains.
We could have used the more widespread blockchain and then waited for the transition to a less energy invasive technology to stop but also for consistency with the project we have created a CHIMERA, that is a platform capable of performing in the world of NFT collecting and at the same time capable of reducing the energy-environmental impact of its activities.
