STOCKHOLM, Sweden, March 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Technicorum Holdings, a Singapore-headquartered global investment and compliance firm specializing in digital assets such as blockchain-based products, today announced the launch of Twelve Gates” Non-Fungible Tokens known with Ernst Billgren and Tradera.com. The digital collectibles, created by one of Sweden’s most prominent artists and authors, will be presented in an online auction at Tradera.com from March 15, 2022 to March 27, 2022.
Ernst Billgren, one of Sweden’s most famous artists and celebrities, will now start his collaboration in the NFT space together with Tradera, the leading marketplace for circular economy in Sweden. The aim is to explore the potential that blockchain technology offers to the art industry, such as B. Sales traceability, automatic percentage of future sales going to the original creator, ownership status, and the future ability to develop definitions of what art is and what can be bought and sold in the context of art.
The first NFT auction starts on March 15, 2022 on Tradera.com. The auction includes a digital artwork, a physical painting and a text about art written by Ernst. Bids are made in Swedish kronor. Buyers and sellers can also agree to conduct the transaction in a different fiat or cryptocurrency.
The NFT series is curated by Jan Åman and Daniel Daboczy in a series of twelve artworks entitled Twelve Goals, with the first artwork called EGO. Ernst Billgren’s physical oil painting “EGO” is expanded into a digital world through NFTs. The painting is also on display at Taverna Brillo in Stockholm.
Daniel Daboczy, Chief Executive Officer of Technicorum Holdings, commented on the cooperation with Ernst Billgren and Tradera.com: “Our development team has global experience in developing smart contracts with high accuracy and enhanced security measures.” Daniel added: “Our main goal is to create high standard smart contracts for Ernst Billgren and Tradera.com’s NFT projects and ensure that the protocols are programmed in relation to Tradera.com’s NFT marketplace business models.”
“The digital art industry needs a solution to verify authenticity and ownership, and artists are looking for ways to monetize the added value of their work. NFT technology could be the solution. We want to explore this alongside established, well-known artists, and we’re excited to start with Ernst Billgren,” said Stefan Öberg, CEO of Tradera.
The digital and physical artwork “EGO” will be auctioned on Tradera.com. All artworks feature a unique digital smart contract provided by Technicorum Holdings. The digital collectible is programmed on open-source blockchain software with a unique digital signature that makes interchangeable exchanges impossible. Full ownership of the artwork and transaction is recorded on the blockchain network and made transparent to the public.
