GDA Capital, a digital asset investment firm, has partnered with the wealth management platform Elitium to host two simultaneous NFT events next week. Over 100 digital art pieces will be auctioned off over two days. NFT Summit is the first virtual conference dedicated to this new asset type. The events will take place June 1-2; investors, collectors, and NFT enthusiasts will participate either in-person at NFT BAZL or virtually at NFT Summit.
NFT BAZL is being held at The Temple House in South Beach and is said to be the first-ever NFT Art Exhibition of its kind – to bridge the gap between NFTs and the real world. Art pieces will be purchasable through a combination of both blockchain and traditional banking means including credit cards, bank transfers, and crypto payments.
Pieces will be showcased by world-renowned artists including Punk Me Tender, Fidia, Hijack, Alessandra Maskita, Rasmus Benjamin, Transparent, Daniel Mazzone, Paul Rousso, and Super Buddha. The event will be the first to host a physical NFT gallery from a selection curated by the prestigious secondary art market specialist Estelle Ohayon.
The auctions for these works will take place on Elitium’s newly-launched in-app NFT marketplace and a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to charity. These donations will be made to the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Queen Diambi Kabatusuila Tshiyoyo Muata’s Elikia Hope Foundation, an organization dedicated to transforming the lives of the African Diaspora. The Queen herself will be attending the event.
NFT BAZL will further be enhanced by a unique musical performance by acclaimed musicians Firebeatz who will stream a set from Amsterdam. The duo has previously worked with Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix and other EDM artists.
The Temple House is a perfect venue for the conference thanks to its technologically advanced facilities, which have been utilized by events, productions, and art installations by leading galleries and artists. The building was designed by L. Murray Dixon and is one of the most iconic Art Deco properties on the East Coast.
The NFT Summit is being held concurrently on Decentraland and streamed live. Keynote speakers will include Rarible’s Alex Salnikov, Nifty Gateway’s Miguel Romero, and Mintbase’s Carolin Wend as well as team members from the event organizers, Raoul Milhado and Michael Gord.
So whether you attend one of the events in-person or virtually, next week will undoubtedly be monumental for the growing digital asset class of NFTs.
