I have long wanted to create a collection of NFTs worthy of the name. The problem is always significant when you work alone and you don’t necessarily have the time or resources to launch such a collection. However – and this is the crucial point – at the beginning of last year I launched the idea of such a collection. At that time the stars were not aligned.
“Generating 300 NFTs around these original works of art and offering them for sale or even exchanging them. Exchange 60 NFTs for an original, the bet was on.”
Then time passed, and after some great successes in the art field, I began to free up more time to create NFTs . I have been approaching AI for a long time and it has made my life easier to create this collection which found its foundation in the 5 Satoshis . 5 unique works that I painted several years ago and which had never had the opportunity to appear on the art market or in any gallery. I had them here, stored and then over time, turning around everything came together: generating 300 NFTs around these original works of art and offering them for sale or even exchanging them. Exchange 60 NFTs for an original, the bet was on.
Of course I had to code a smart contract , find promotion slots and do what I had never done before: work on social networks.
The concept today seems quite unique to me with more than 60 NFTs per original and the possibility of obtaining a physical work in exchange for pixelated elements. Going further, we can even say that a work is at least one sixtieth of the original set at 350,000 euros, therefore a price per NFT which should be around 5833.00 euros.
Of course 99 ETH deviates from the rule with an NFT which is calibrated to the price of Ethereum . Currently it is one of the 5 satoshis which is the cheapest with a price of around 158,000 euros. Obviously for some, given my prices, the sum for a painting can be significant. However, I claim to see further than my contemporaries.
No Prints. Big added value.
What I want most it is offered to my clients, my galleries, those who buy my NFTs and my work, added value. As I often say, prints are a way to enrich the artist more than their clients. I don’t want that. For this reason there will never be prints or NFTs without any added value.
“The project is much bigger than that: putting a Satoshi on each continent, in a secure location open only to owners of NFTs.”
Here I offer reality. I want my rating to increase significantly, I have the ambition, for me, for those who bet on me, for art too and for others. Demonstrate that with hard work, and without influence on social networks, we can excel in a field. Of course you need a business plan and that’s my field. Everything is in order, calculated, and we are on time.
I don’t want a social or pictorial revolution with these NFTs , I want to conceptualize the IRL. Prove that NFTs have a future. And the 5 Satoshis are examples of this, not only will those who buy them be able to exchange them for the original work but they will also be able to see it whenever they want thanks to the possession of a single and unique NFT . The project is much bigger than that: putting a Satoshi on each continent, in a secure location open only to owners of NFTs.
I want to empower those who believe in me. They give me a lot: their time, their money, their interest, and above all the power to exist in the field of art. Too many artists forget their clients, their gallery owners, their followers. If I only paint for myself, I want them to be able to share my successes, to understand that they are essential to a career, an ambition, and a project.
I don’t ask for anything. I believe in destiny, and everything will come. My 5 Satoshis are a unique project. On Instagram I spam everyone with my NFTs. They may not be aware of it yet, but this project will be a game-changer in the field of art and NFTs. Right now I’m selling a promise. Something exclusive. Tomorrow everyone will know to what extent this promise was the foundation of something great.
Of course and I will end on this point, these NFTs or the 5 satoshis are not a social, political, or even pictorial manifesto. There is no message behind it. Just a simple desire: install them like the Mona Lisa of this millennium. Put them on a pedestal and prove to everyone, from right to left, optimists, pessimists, happy, unhappy, stable, unstable or whatever, that an ambition, an ideal, even an extravagant will, and more than anything: that an idea of the world can find mooring in a very cold reality.
