25/06/2021 Beeple launches iconic 'moments' NFT platform with Time, Universal, and Warner

The platform will host the sale of tokens depicting historic moments in sport, politics, and fashion.

Pioneering digital artist Mike Winkelmann— better known as Beeple — has helped launch We.new, a platform selling iconic moments in sports, politics, art, and fashion as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The platform is backed by industry giants from the world of journalism, sport, and music including TIME, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Wasserman, and Endeavor.

We.new will host auctions and direct sales of Ethereum-powered NFTs. Tokens sold in multiple editions on We.new will use Polygon (MATIC) for layer-2 scaling.

Beeple, the highest paid NFT artist so far, said that NFTs represented a new paradigm in how the public can celebrate remarkable achievements.

"They give people a way to meaningfully engage with the memories and moments that matter to them — maybe even inspired them or shaped who they are in some way. We.new exists to facilitate and make concrete these once-abstract connections."

NFTs sold on We.new will also offer opportunities to secure real-world artifacts and unique experiences — including physical sculptures, and opportunities for meet and greets with artists and athletes.

Wenew will host its first auction from July 2 -5, offering tokenized images celebrating tennis star Andy Murray’s 2013 Wimbledon Grand Slam victory. The highest bidder will also get to play a game of tennis with Murray in real life, and two tickets to the 2022 men’s Wimbledon finals.

As the NFT boom began bubbling last year, Beeple emerged as a pioneer of the form.

In February, Beeple auctioned his Crossroad NFT for $6.6 million alongside a looped museum-quality video which can be hosted in an art gallery or displayed at home. The success of the auction was followed up in March with the sale of Beeple's piece Everydays—The First 5000 Days: the First 5000 Days which raised a record-breaking $69 million through the prestigious auction house, Christie’s.

The palm tree that has a cracked open Bitcoin coconut suggests that by traveling you can enjoy this tropical digital fruit. The peacock nesting in the tree has spread its wings to flaunt other integrated crypto logos as well. The famous Miami skyline at the bottom incorporates the coins, as well as the code that is transforming the banking buildings that made it. The origin of that skyline is in the 80's cocaine craze, so it is all incorporated into the story of foundational transformation, linked to a global movement. The file size is suitable for an 8K TV.
