NFT Meet Up
It is not just a matter of who the artist is, it is a matter of which story lies behind a work of art. This story, regardless of the artist who created the art, has links to other characters, who have lived other stories. The actual work of art, besides its aesthetic value, turns itself into a proof, an irrefutable certificate of a link to a story its owner has become a part of. A story that deserves to be told.
Is it possible to have such a link by owning a digital image? Even though there could be thousands of copies of a digital asset, only some of them — or just one — could be tracked back to the artist, to the story behind the work of art. NFTs are the perfect digital tool to disrupt the way we are linked to these stories, but to understand what NFTs are, is still abstract.
