Since the dawn of time, art has been relatively subjective and yet one of the most prized possessions for humans. Whether they are paintings or sculptures, books or vinyl records, owning art as opposed to consuming art is viewed as astute and royal. Psychologically, it gives the owner a feeling of power to own a unique and rare art piece, and thus from exclusive painting exhibitions to limited book sales, people generally storm in with the hopes of getting involved.
For years, exhibitions have been an essential source of selling paintings or sculptures to the end-users. However, the new wave of digital transformation has changed the industry. NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens have tied the crypto and art worlds together, allowing collectors ownership of digital art. NFTs work as a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on the blockchain. NFTs became a clear expansion of the industry, offering an adjunct to traditional art, thanks to its unique characteristic of transparency and ownership.
The latest advent of the metaverse has transformed how digital art, through NFTs can be traded and displayed. While NFTs started as digital art, combining it with the metaverse means NFTs now serve as a digital asset that can be displayed in virtual reality, such as virtual art galleries, museums, or even incorporated into the scenery of any virtual landscape. In addition to the aesthetic component, the smart contract functionalities of NFTs can also facilitate the sale of real estate in the metaverse. For instance, RTFKT – a shoemaker in the metaverse, has designed limited edition digital sneakers that can be worn virtually.
The metaverse is a new world with endless possibilities, which means ownership of land is becoming more prevalent. Real estate in the metaverse opens a world of possibilities for entrepreneurs looking to expand their businesses, increase their network of customers, and showcase their products in a different manner. As more businesses are moving from traditional retail and e-commerce into the metaverse, ownership of property and land is becoming more and more important.
