Marina Nadeeva, founder of ArtCollectingSpace commented:

Our dApp was launched on December 13, 2021 on Tezos blockchain. It was created for ultra-contemporary art auctions. The results of the world’s first Ultra-Contemporary Art Auction, which was held on New Year’s Eve, showed that we are going in the right direction.

All works that were presented at the auction are tokenized according to the FA2 standard on the Tezos blockchain. We continue to work on involving artists in the field of blockchain.

Our goal is not only to open up new markets, but also to show a wide audience what cutting-edge art is. We expect over 10 million people to see the nominees’ work.”
