In fact, these concepts existed before 2021.

A price that sounds like “billion”... a reason to be enthusiastic about cryptopunk?

Have you heard of “cryptopunk”? Cryptopunk is an early NFT issued experimentally when the concept of an NFT was just emerging. “Lava Labs” issued 10,000 cryptopunk NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain in 2017, and now, 4 years later, the price of cryptopunk is currently on a high march.

Currently, there are many funds circulating in the NFT market that we cannot imagine.

In addition to that, we will provide you with a view to determine which direction this market will develop in the future, and you Investment directionWe'll help you set it up.

'NFT Art' What is your alternate identity?

NFT artIt proves the uniqueness of a digital work of art by assigning asset information and creators to a token called an NFT. It is recognized as a unique asset because it cannot be copied or falsified due to blockchain technology.

There are so many examples of NFT art transactions around the world, but I think we can hear Banksy's most famous work overseas, and Upbit's NFT auctions in Korea. There are many other examples, so we'll discuss them together in class.

📌 Overseas examples: Banksy's work

Banksy's painting “Morons” (Morons), a British “faceless painter,” was converted into an NFT and put up for auction, and the real painting was burned by people presumed to be involved. This painting was sold in Hanwha for approximately 430 million won.

When virtual and real things coexist,

The value of the work depends on the real thing, but

If you get rid of the real thing,

The NFT picture becomes an irreplaceable and authentic item.

A new era of art trading has arrived, so why are you uneasy?

A new art trading market has opened, but this market is still there chaotic It's inside. It is being built by invisible hands, but I think there are people who feel uneasy before starting because there is no proper regulation or discipline. I'm here to help ease this worry.

Everyone to NFT art The purpose of getting startedWhat is it? The purpose is not only a simple investment, but also a variety of purposes. Depending on the purpose, the direction of your approach should vary. We'll show you a purpose-driven approach.

Also, since most of them aim to realize profit, I'm going to deal with it more deeply from the perspective of profit realization.

Taking the plunge in earnest

It's fine to invest directly, but someone might want to create and sell your work. We'll show you everything from how to create a basic NFT wallet to how to register directly on a trading platform.

📌 People who don't know much about art but want to create and sell NFT works

📌 People who are curious about what works sell well in the NFT trading market

📌 Those who want to properly develop ideas and plans to become writers

📌 People who want to earn money by trading NFT works

📌 Those who are afraid of the prospects of the NFT market

Is it an overheated NFT market bubble?

There are also voices warning that copyright issues, such as the use of images of NFT artworks that have been opened online, are still ambiguous, and that large transactions are made because they have unique digital value.

The public points out that “the price bubble is showing due to the influx of big money” and that if the craze subsides, the risk of loss is high and it is easy to become a good opportunity for fraudsters.

I wonder if that's true ❓

Hallo I'm an artist from Hongdae.

In this era of metaverse and NFT, we are one person who is still thinking about how to respond wisely.

NFTs have been coming to us since the beginning of 2021, when we were thirsty for new things as artists. Since I was interested in learning about it, I also created an NFT work and wrote a book by adding my existing art knowledge based on that experience. I also teach at art colleges.
