A number of collectible artworks, including cards from the Rare Pepe card collection, have been featured in the Sotheby’s NFT marketplace. Paris Hilton, the socialite, has now introduced a few of her NFTs on Sotheby’s native NFT market, which includes works by popular NFT artists such as Chelsea Evenstar and Maalavidaa.
Sotheby’s, the world’s leading auction house, has launched the Metaverse NFT Market.
Sotheby’s, the British-founded American multinational luxury auction house headquartered in New York City, has recently increased its focus on non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles. The company launched the “Sotheby’s Metaverse” last week to host and auction off the hottest NFTs in the market. The original Sotheby’s website was unable to provide the same experiences that Metaverse does, and people can host their NFT collections by connecting with Sotheby’s.
A collection of some of the most rare Rare Pepe blockchain trading cards was recently listed on the Sotheby’s NFT Metaverse market. The “Token Angels” Twitter account tweeted about his Rare Pepe blockchain trading cards being listed on the luxury NFT market. “Very honored to participate [in this] auction [and] super proud to present RAREPEPE to the world art community,” said Token Angels. “Please watch the video (in link), in which I present the three incredible cards up for auction and explain why RAREPEPEs are the OG of the OGs of NFTs and Crypto Art.”
Paris Hilton Uses Sotheby’s Market to List Her NFTs
Paris Hilton, a media personality, socialite, businesswoman, model, singer, and actress, tweeted about her new listing in the Sotheby’s Metaverse NFT marketplace on October 19, just before bitcoin (BTC) surpassed its all-time high. “I adore the incredible [artwork] for my [Natively Digital] @Sothebys @Sothebysverse Auction,” Hilton tweeted.
Hilton’s NFT collection, which is hosted on Sotheby’s Metaverse, includes a piece called “Fractures” by Maalavidaa. Another piece by Serwah Attafuah, “Aether: Galaxy Goddess,” and an NFT by Chelsea Evenstar, “AQUARIUS – Keeper of the Amethyst Star.”
Hilton developed her first NFT in March 2020, according to the NFT auction listing on Sotheby’s market, and she won the “Best Charity NFT” award at the NFT Awards ceremony. According to the Sotheby’s listing, “Paris sees the NFT art market as the future, and loves that artists are pushing boundaries and changing the art industry forever.” Paris Hilton has long been a supporter of the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries, stating this past spring that she is “very, very excited” about bitcoin.
