Paris, capital of Contemporary Art (Art Basel) and NFT (NFT Factory) – Web3 monitoring

Web3 is an idea for a new iteration of the WWW that incorporates concepts such as decentralization, blockchain technologies, and token-based economy. “Web1 was read-only, Web2 is read-write, Web3 will be read-write-own.”

Last January, we learned that the Fiac would not return for a 48th edition at the Grand Palais, or even at the Grand Palais Ephémère. For the next seven years (2022 included), it must leave its coveted place to Art Basel, which has chosen Paris as its new destination, following a call for tenders launched by the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais. Art Basel is a contemporary art event held annually in Basel in Switzerland, in Miami in the United States and in Hong Kong in China and now Paris! A huge contemporary art fair which was attended by 156 international art galleries who responded, chosen from some 700 applications, including 61 French.

Tezos was an official partner of Paris+ by Art Basel with a series of “State of the ART” events to show their platform that transforms the conservation, ownership and exhibition of works of art. NFTs are the gateway to a new digital canvas. They are transforming the way artists connect with collectors and fans, and the way collectors buy and sell art. Tezos is one of the most promising blockchains in the NFT ecosystem, it invests in many sectors such as Banking, Retail… but also Art! Not least because the Tezos community plays a central role in making decisions today to shape the future of Tezos tomorrow. Since the network is decentralized, they (the token holders) are the voices of the change they want to see.

They announced, a new Tezos-based platform for split NFTs, coming soon. In a chat, Tezos co-founders Arthur and Kathleen Breitman think gaming could be the next big thing driving adoption of the blockchain.

At the same time, the NFT Factory opens on the forecourt of the Pompidou Center, a unique physical space! Originally an idea of ​​John Karp, listening to the audio piece he tells the genesis of the idea. It is also a collective of 128 founding members who financially supported the start of this NFT house to support artists and democratize their use, which goes much further than Art. The NFT Factory welcomes you from Wednesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 137 rue Saint-Martin.
