Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are so much more than collectible digital artwork. This technology helps artists form new trends and share their vision with the audience.
Ekaterina Perekopskaya and Rostyslav Brenych, two digital artists behind Concept2048, are using NFTs to bring attention to global problems such as climate change. Their Metamorphoses collection features 2,048 NFTs, each depicting an “envoy” — a person who recognizes the value of sustainability and believes that caring for the world around us should take precedence over the individual’s concern for themselves.
Those who share the artists’ strive for a more sustainable future may not only buy a unique piece of art but also join the community and become an envoy — the member who can contribute to building a better world. Hundreds of users have already become envoys this way.
Concept2048 Turns Many Heads
The artists, who have participated in the Venice Biennale three times, debuted their Metamorphoses collection at the Personal Structures art exhibition of the Venice Biennale 2022. The event was the first edition to shine a spotlight on NFTs and attracted the attention of the global art community.
Instead of selling their collection for the offered price of $137,000, Perekopskaya and Brenych opted for the NFT technology and the community to highlight the importance of addressing global issues. They invite art connoisseurs and ordinary users who share their beliefs to join them as envoys and make their voices heard about a more conscious tomorrow. NFTs are what give their owners this power of voice, allowing them to vote for initiatives and prioritize the problems that are to be solved.
Calling On All Envoys In the Final Presale Phase
Building an NFT collection to make the world better is an excellent example of NFT technology’s power. It enables anyone who wants to make their voice heard to raise awareness and take action. Although the envoy seats in this project are limited, those interested can still acquire the Concept2048 NFTs by applying for whitelisted status.
The release of the Metamorphoses collection will be held on Ethereum (1,448 NFTs) and TON (600 NFTs) blockchains. The latter provides a unique opportunity to enter the brand-new NFT marketplace TON Diamonds, which features NFTs from top digital artists and collections.
The collection has gone through multiple presale stages, with rounds in August (18 minutes), September (48 hours), and November (18 minutes) selling out quickly. The final presale round took place on December 19-23, 2022, with the collection’s official mint date slated for January 24, 2023. There is a pre-mint slot one day ahead of the official mint date for users securing presale access. Those wishing to access early opportunities are offered to join a whitelist available on the project’s website.
After the end of the public mint, the “Metamorphoses” NFT collection is expected to trade on OpenSea and GetGems marketplaces.
