Beeple asserted that the NFTs constituted a new prototype that feeds off the remarkable achievements in human history, which can be commemorated and honored through the platform.
Mike Winkelmann aka Beeple, one of the most famous digital artists around the world, presented WENEW, the premier curator and provisioner of iconic moments as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). The platform helps people collect stellar instances in sports, arts, and culture on the blockchain.
The platform which aims to ‘immortalize moments on the Blockchain’ has roped in industry giants like TIME, Endeavor, IMG, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, The Champions Wimbledon, and Open Earth Foundation. TIME has been delegated as the curation partner, and the work will include assisting WENEW to recognize the awe-inspiring moments in history.
The first auction to take place will commemorate tennis ace Andy Murray’s triumphant feat at Wimbledon in 2013. The home page of WENEW’s website displays an impressive gallery of photos from Andy’s long-awaited victory against Serbian player Novak Djokovic. The bid that commences on July the 2nd will not only sell an NFT but the entire experience, making the auction more riveting. The highest bidder in the deal will be provided VIP benefits like sporting a match with Murray at Wimbledon, along with a couple of tickets to the men’s finals in 2022. The bidder will also enjoy a private behind-the-scenes tour for a wholesome experience.
The Ethereum-run platform will, in addition to blockchain ownership, furnish the collectors with a Physical Artifact of their WENEW moment. With the help of Arweave technology, an IT company specializing in data storage and blockchains, the WENEW moments will be combined with profound editorial works that exhibit an essential history. Some of the ‘premium moments’ will also provide exclusive access to once-in-a-lifetime collectible memorabilia.
Since Ethereum has been functioning on inflated gas prices (which is the unit that estimates the amount of computational effort required to execute distinct operations), it is not regarded as an eco-friendly blockchain. To uphold the platform’s and Beeple’s claims of supporting sustainable NFTs, WENEW has partnered with Open Earth Foundation which will manifest activities curated to diminish energy-intensive exchanges. The platform also professes to fund enterprises towards a wide-ranging variety of climate programs.
Beeple, the highest-paid NFT artist in the world, asserted that the NFTs constituted a new prototype that feeds off the remarkable achievements in human history, which can be commemorated and honored through the platform. He explained how meaningful memories can shape and inspire people in a way that matters.
“WENEW exists to facilitate and make concrete these once-abstract connections,” concluded Beeple.
