MIAMI (PRWEB) December 03, 2021
(Art Basel Miami Beach) - Jupiter Group, the leader in art and tech integration, and Brendan Murphy, the world-renowned artist behind Boonji Project, today announced art collectors can now purchase Boonji Project non-fungible tokens (NFTs) through Nifty Gateway, Gemini's digital art exchange, taking advantage of the platform's world-class custody compliance and practices. The listing of Boonji Project NFTs on Nifty Gateway bridges the gap between the traditional, fine art world and NFTs, greatly simplifying the purchase of the digital assets and enabling credit card payments.
"Boonji Project has provided me an opportunity to share my physical art with the blockchain and cryptocurrency community," said Brendan Murphy. "The experience has been amazing. The reach and exposure this platform provides has never existed for artists before. Boonji project is now listed with the Nifty Gateway platform and I believe the added exposure will continue to increase value for our current token holders."
The listing of Boonji Project NFTs on Gemini's Nifty Gateway makes it easy for traditional art collectors, who might not have experience with cryptocurrency and blockchain, to purchase the assets using a credit card. Buyers simply select the NFT they would like to purchase and pay the listing price, bypassing the need to pay for separate network transaction fees. Current Boonji Project holders can also import their tokens to Nifty Gateway to take advantage of the exchange's world-class custody and security.
"Many traditional fine art buyers do not understand the value behind digital assets, like Boonji Project NFTs, however, by building global markets for digital artwork like we've done, including physical redeemables, we are creating better liquidity and real-time pricing dynamics for fine art," said Greg Norman Jr., CEO and Cofounder at Jupiter Group. "Nifty Gateway has done an excellent job at simplifying the purchase of digital assets for first-time buyers. Just like Gemini's exchange took the headache out of cryptocurrency purchasing and custody, Nifty Gateway has done the same for NFTs."
Boonji Project and Nifty Gateway will be giving away six Boonji Project NFTs in conjunction with the listing. Learn more about the giveaway on Boonji Project's community. In advance of the announcement, Boonji Project executed a sale of 200 NFTs at Art Basel Miami Beach, the premier art show in Miami that brings together contemporary artists and their patrons.
"As one of the first world-renowned artists to explore the possibilities enabled by NFTs, Brenden's work is extremely important to the broader digital asset community," Patrick Milgram, Producer at Nifty Gateway. "Our team at Nifty Gateway is focused on onboarding buyers to NFTs in a way that is safe, simple, and secure. The work Jupiter Group is doing to connect the physical art and digital art worlds makes it a great fit for Nifty Gateway."
