'888 The New World' Art NFT marketplace coming to Flare (backed by 3LAU, Paris Hilton, and a bunch of others)


Recommended Posts

Looks like a platform for artists to mint, showcase, and sell their own NFTs. As with the metaverse thing, I don't know enough about the NFT / Digital Art scene to be able to gauge how big this is. I've been watching this 888crypto guy on twitter recently, and I don't know who he is but he sure has a lot of money to spend on NFTs. 

The intro video is graphically impressive. The list of artists who are supporting it is supposedly impressive. I went down the list and this 3LAU guy has 200k followers, a bunch of others have 20-40k followers. Also Paris Hilton is working with it, which should get some media attention. 

In the video they highlight how Flare is much more eco-friendly than ETH, and has low minting costs for NFTs (under $1). It says coming in summer 2021. 

Another notable thing is there is a foundation as part of it which will search out artists from developing nations. 

As ever, Flare continues to impress with the projects they have encouraged even before the launch. I wonder how much of this is the result of the team reaching out to people? Surely low minting fees and significantly lower carbon emissions than ETH is a selling point, but how are these things started up? It's interesting. This will turn some heads, especially as it very directly showcases itself as better than ETH.

Looking into this 3LAU guy. It seems he is a DJ and EDM producer. Appeared at the Ultra Music Festival in 2019. Seems that he is a pioneer of using NFTs and crypto for selling his stuff. Guy has 439k followers on soundcloud. 

Some news from March this year:

History has been made – Top blockchain influencer and renowned musician 3LAU (in partnership with Origin Protocol) has sold a record-breaking $11.6 Million in NFTs via an online auction from February 25-28. This is a record for overall sales for a single NFT drop/collection, as well as the highest price paid for a single NFT ($3.6M).

Seems like he's not messing around.
