Gm ☕🍂


Between Jan Erichsen’s Fakewhale Cross drop, the DEMOTAPERS launch event and RIP HEN making its return…let’s just say there is a lot going on that you won’t want to miss. 

Let’s check out this week’s highlights!


✨NFT MAYHEM. A look at Jan Hakon Erichsen’s Fakewhale Cross drop 

Jan Hakon Erichsen is an artist that works with performance for video, which he shares daily across social media exploring the things we surround ourselves with, often through destroying everyday objects in excessive ways or using them in an unorthodox manner.

 

The performances are sculpturally based, with crude destruction machines as a recurring theme — Erichsen makes everything from very simple devices to complex contraptions that are all designed to destroy everyday objects of low monetary value.


On October 21st 2022, marked his debut on Nifty Gateway with Fakewhale Cross drop “NFT MAYHEM”, that will consist of the following structure:

 

– Mugged – Open Edition 199$ each

– Ballon Mayhem – 1/1 auction 1000$ min bid & 100$ min increase

✨All about the DEMOTAPERS Launch event in Milan this week

Wednesday was truly a night to remember as we inaugurated DEMOTAPERS with a private party and press conference at the Golab Agency headquarters in Milan.


Valuart is proud to present DEMOTAPERS, a music & visual NFT platform where musicians & visual artists, and their community gather to create, share, trade and collect limited-edition unique art pieces.

 

The launch event opened with a dedicated panel in which co-founder Matteo Zarcone took the stage with Polygon’s DAO lead Marco Moshi to present DEMOTAPERS and reveal more details in regard to drop 001 — our very first drop that will take place on December 1st, 2022 with Planet Funk’s iconic Chase The Sun track taking on new shapes and forms.

 

Etan Genini CEO and co-founder of Valuart added “In the last two years, the explosion of the NFT phenomenon has allowed the whole world to fully comprehend the potential of blockchain technology. What happened in the art market serves as a warning sign for what is to come soon throughout the entire intellectual property ecosystem. The Demotapers platform proposes itself as the ideal space for music and visual arts to come together to become two sides of the same coin.”

 

The perfect final touch to this unique reveal last night then saw Alex Neri’s DJ set take place, setting the perfect vibes for the countdown.
