This sale and other upcoming scheduled sales validate that our solution will facilitate the mainstream adoption of NFTs and blockchain technologies across the global gaming and entertainment industries as double jump.tokyo helps large scale enterprises successfully incorporate blockchain technologies into their company strategy.”
The Generative Art digital collectible NFT is a randomly generated piece of artwork based on a selection of the image materials used in the Mosaic Art NFT. The Mosaic Art NFT is composed of background and the “Astro Boy” Character created with more than 6,000 tiles. Each tile represents a single piece of Tezuka Osamu’s works or characters which when combined are integrated into one powerful picture. The Mosaic ART NFT will be a one-of-a-kind and actioned off with a starting bid of 10 ETH beginning on December 15, 2021, at 3:00 am (UTC). The auction will take place on Open Sea here and can be followed on Twitter @tezuka_art_nft.
