While many people in the crypto community wonder why NFTs are grabbing huge attention in the industry. Superchief recently launched a new NFT art gallery. The new art gallery is situated in Union Square and will use high-resolution screens to display Non-fungible tokens on auction.
Many people have already adopted these tokens, and this recent move in New York will skyrocket both recognition and more adoption for non-fungible tokens.
Superchief’s New NFT Art Gallery
Superchief operates galleries all over New York & Los Angeles. This newest gallery in Union Square will solely display NFTs. The art collective is collaborating with Black dove, a company that manufactures high-resolution display screens for digital arts.
According to Superchief, their first auction, which they title “Season One Started Pack,” will be featuring more than 300 artists. Each of these artists will auction one-of-one Non-fungible tokens on display and also auction a 72-print drop. As for payment, Superchief confirms that people can use both their credit cards and cryptocurrencies to pay for the tokens.
But it seems that Superchief is not the first to hold such a display for NFTs. There have been claims from art galleries & museums all over the world about their first-ever NFTs displays. Even though, it seemed that way back in 2017; many galleries were already displaying Cryptopunks. Moreover, Kevin Abosch had been showcasing blockchain-based art before the NFT concept came to light.
Other Museums to Host NFT Exhibition
According to our research, a museum in Russia known as “Hermitage” will soon host a Non-fungible token exhibition. The museum plans to display the works of famous artists like Abosch. Another museum operating in Beijing opened an NFT exhibition which they claimed to be the first “major” exhibition ever.
That’s not all; a popular artist, collector, and critic known as Kenny Schacter will soon open a “dual physical-and-virtual show” in Germany. According to the information we got, the show will happen in a gallery known as “Nagel Draxler” on the 19th of April. This show will supposedly run in both the Museum of Contemporary Digital Art and the Museum of Crypto Art.
The recent spree by these institutions is now making headlines all over the crypto community. Initially, people thought that NFT is just a technical niche. But recently, the adoption has widened at an alarming rate.
Almost all the major news outlets and publications are in a frenzy covering NFTs, even those that ignored blockchain entirely. We can’t be surprised because the news follows where the money goes, and recently, many people have been pumping money into NFTs.
In March, an auction house known as “Christie” sold a Beeple digital art for more than $69 million.
