Matt Kane is Eternal - And his Generative Collection, Gazers, is an Unprecedented Exploration of Time, the One Thing that Binds Us

Having spent so much time enveloped within Bitcoin price volatility, moment after moment, day after day, instantaneous and extreme, Kane “felt my own relationship to time had become very chaotic.” So, he thought, “I’m going to create a project that is the complete polar opposite in terms of how it deals with time and change.”

$ 100,000 Crypto Art: Record Sale for Artwork on Blockchain

For the first time, a piece of crypto art was sold for $ 100,000 on the Async Art platform, where programmable art is created, collected and exchanged that can evolve over time, react to its owners or follow a stock price. It’s Right Place Right Time & of Matt Kane , a work of digital art that changes every day depending on the volatility of Bitcoin prices. Unlike a “classic” digital work, cryptoart works – always digital files, and therefore, by their nature, can be copied indefinitely without loss of quality – are however inserted into an authentication system managed by software that uses Ethereum blockchain technology and buyers pay in digital currency.

Crypto Art Community Reacts to Record 100K Sale

Many in the community were already familiar with the artwork which premiered in March at the “Get Out While You Stay In” virtual reality art show which had been organized to replace the San Francisco based Bitcoin 2020 Conference, canceled due to Covid-19. As soon as news broke of the record-breaking sale, the hashtag #CryptoArt on Twitter sprang to life. “My all-time favorite work of crypto art,” exclaimed Lee Mason, a well known UK based VR artist and educator also known as Metageist. “I can’t imagine anything representing this technology and community better.”

“Yes, this is the right way,” respected artist duo Hackatao stated. “We are happy that the quality of a forward-looking project is so well rewarded.”

With the patronage of TokenAngels, the artwork’s collector, the artist gained a unique opportunity to experiment: sharing revenue with a collector in the form of subsequent minted variations of the artwork. Through volatility.art, Matt Kane will periodically produce and sell a digital art NFT to represent A Day in the Life of Bitcoin. This NFT will also grant its owner the right to purchase a physical print.

NFT's & Crypto's High-End Art Market

If you look at the above screenshot of Matt Kane’s work, it just looks like a cool piece of Bitcoin art. What’s under the hood is what makes it interesting. Kane wrote an algorithm that’s tied into a BTC pricing feed. Every 12 hours, the algorithm updates the piece based on Bitcoin’s volatility from that day, which you can see on display in this GIF.

In addition to being an evolving work of art, there are a few other components that make this interesting. For one, Kane has retained an ownership token that allows him to fine-tune the piece over time – a novel aspect of NFT based artwork that allows the artist to retain some level of control over the work. Artwork no longer has to remain static, and instead, can adapt and evolve as an artist builds upon their work over time.

Dijital Sanatçılar İçin Yeni İlham Perisi: Bitcoin!

Eserin her günkü fiyat dalgalanmalarının yansıtıldığı bir orjinal versiyonu var. Buna master imaj diyebiliriz. Master imaj nötr, yani herhangi bir dalgalanmadan etkilenmemiş, “sıfır oynaklık” versiyonu. Her gün TSİ 15:00’deki fiyat değişikliği, işte bu master imajı yeniden düzenleyerek yeni bir eserin oluşmasını sağlıyor. Yani bir gün önceki imajı ertesi günü baz olarak kullanmıyor. Master NFT denilen ve ilk eser ile oluşmuş olan NFT(Non-FungibleToken – Cemil hoca’nın deyimiyle Tekil Token, yani Tek-Tok’lar) 262 ETH ödeyen TokenAngels isimli bir kripto melek yatırımcı ve koleksiyonerde bulunuyor. Her ne kadar eserin mülkiyeti devredilmiş olsa da sanatçı halen bir takım yazılım güncellemeleri diyebileceğimiz ince ayar yapma haklarını elinde tutuyor. NFT’nin tokenize edilen sanat eserleri için sunduğu bu imkan sayesinde sanatçı eserini yaşayan bir varlık haline getirebiliyor, yeni geliştirmelerle adapte edebiliyor ve sanatçının da yeteneği – kodlama kapasitesi de diyebiliriz – geliştikçe eser de evriliyor.

NFTs e o mercado de obras de arte da indústria cripto

Se você observar a obra de Matt Kane acima, parece uma arte legal sobre bitcoin. O que não está à vista é o mais interessante: Kane escreveu um algoritmo que está ligado a um feed de preço do bitcoin. A cada 12 horas, o algoritmo atualiza a arte com base na volatilidade do bitcoin naquele dia.

Além de ser uma obra de arte evoluída, existem outros componentes que a tornam interessante.

Primeiro, Kane reteve um token de governança que permite que ele atualize a obra ao longo do tempo — um novo aspecto de artes baseadas em NFTs que permite que o artista tenha certo nível de controle sobre seu trabalho.

Obras de artes não precisam mais serem estáticas e, em vez disso, podem se adaptar e evoluir conforme um artista desenvolve seu trabalho ao longo do tempo.

Segundo, já que essa obra responde aos ritmos da volatilidade do bitcoin, irá emitir 210 NFTs individuais em dias significativos de movimentação.

Por exemplo, digamos que o bitcoin atinja US$ 20 mil — um novo NFT será emitido e vendido baseado no aspecto da obra naquele dia. Quem comprar esse NFT terá a capacidade de pedir por uma versão impressa.

NFT'ler sanatçılar için blokzincir teknolojisi ile farklı bir gelecek mi sunuyor? Tokenize edilmiş sanat: "Hem bir fırsat hem de bir meydan okuma."

Koronavirüs sürecinde yaşanan karantinalar ve yasaklamalar sanat sektörünü hem ekonomik hem de sanatsal özgürlük alanları açısından etkiledi. Birçok sergi, festival ve eser dijital ortama taşındı. Kripto sanat alanında dikkat çeken satışlar gerçekleşti. 23 Eylül’de, müzayede evi Christie’s, ilk değişimi olmayan token (NFT) eserini bir açık artırmada satmayı planladığını duyurdu. Bu gelişme, Matt Kane’nin “Doğru Yer ve Doğru Zaman” (Right Place & Right Time) isimli sanat eserinin (262 Ethereum) 100 bin doların üzerinde bir tutara satılmasının ardından gerçekleşti. Bitcoin’in logosunun yaratıcı bir şekilde tasarlanmış görüntüsünü içeren “Doğru Yer ve Doğru Zaman”, NFT sanat eserlerinin sadece bir örneğiydi.

Yüksek tutarlarda Bitcoin ve Ethereum gibi kripto paralar üzerinden satışı gerçekleştirilen sanat eserlerinin artışıyla birlikte Morgan Creek Digital’in Kurucu Ortağı ve Ortağı Anthony Pompliano 21 Eylül’de şunları yazdı:

“Şahsen dijital sanat pazarının büyüklüğünün fiziksel sanat piyasası sınırından daha büyük olacağına inanıyorum. Bu bugün saçma gelebilir.”

100.000 US-Dollar: Neuer Verkaufsrekord für Bitcoin-Kunstwerk

Matt Kane hat mit „Right Place & Right Time“ ein digitales Kunstwerk erschaffen, das seine Gestalt mit dem BTC-Kurs ändert. Auf der Plattform Async Art wurde es als NFT für knapp über 100.000 US-Dollar verkauft.

Schon mehrmals kam es zur Versteigerung digitaler Kunstwerke als Non Fungible Token. Unlängst hatte der Schauspieler und Tech-Investor Ashton Kutcher Aufsehen erregt, indem er eine eigenhändige Zeichnung vernichtete und das digitale Abbild auf der Blockchain in einer Auktion feilbot. Die neue Aktion des Künstlers Matt Kane jedoch stellt alles bisher Dagewesene in den Schatten. Sein digitales Opus namens „Right Place & Right Time“ fand auf der Plattform Async Art für 262 ETH (umgerechnet knapp über 100.000 US-Dollar) einen Abnehmer.

Jetons NFT de collection – Un marché en pleine explosion sur fond d’art contemporain

L’univers des cryptomonnaies offre des opportunités aussi nombreuses et improbables que la technologie blockchain et l’imagination des développeurs le permettent. Un terreau fertile qui voit naître et s’installer des acteurs de toutes sortes, au service de projets prometteurs. C’est le cas actuellement des jetons non fongibles (NFT) au service de l’art numérique et des collectionneurs.

La technologie blockchain permet de créer les cryptomonnaies classiques. Mais ses applications sont multiples et offrent également la possibilité de développer et de vendre des objets numériques. Cela sous la forme de jetons de type non fongibles (NFT ou nifty). C’est-à-dire qu’ils ne peuvent pas être divisés en unités inférieures et ont chacun une valeur qui leur est propre.
