They asked if we (Knownorigin.io) would like to partner with them to promote artists on the blockchain and the potential of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) at the up coming NIFTY conference + Hackathon in Hong Kong.
The concept was simple, can we challenge our artists to create a unique design for a T-shirt give away?
After a few chats on Telegram with 0xCert we decided to set a “Creative Challenge” to the KnownOrigin.io artists and they accepted!
The invitation to the artists
The deadline was tight & from the start we said that this challenge would be a contra-deal (so no money would be exchanged) however in return 0xCert would promote the artist, knownorigin.io and get the designs printed on to T-shirt to be given away at the event.
We had a great response from our community, the submission(s) came flying in. By the deadline (11th July) we had ten ultraRare (1 of 1) designs by 5 artist. These artists include Hackatao, Massimo, Oficinas Tk, CoinJournal & Aktiv Protesk. All of the designs will be available as digital assets on the KnownOrigin.io marketplace during the event (24 July).
The event & partnership
The NIFTY conference + Hackathon is set to be one of the first blockchain hackathon event in Asia. NIFTY is a 2 day event (July 24–26) with over 25 speakers, 5 hackathon workshops and an expected 1000+ attendees. Having the opportunity to collaborate with 0xCert and have a presence at the event is massive plus for us. We are super excited to see how the T-shirt give away goes and working with 0xCert on future collaborations.
Here are a sample of the designs submitted
