Over $70,000 in prizes await the lucky winners. The event’s local and global partners include Magic Eden, Metaplex, USS FEED, Serum, Project SEED, Eizper Chain, Coinvestasi and more.

    NFT on Solana attracts global audience

    NFTs are in their heyday, creating an inflection point for those looking to gain an audience and monetize their work. The Indonesian Art Project offers local artists the opportunity to showcase their NFTs on Solana, the fastest and most scalable blockchain for attracting a global audience.

    Solana’s low fees provide an additional, not-so-subtle opportunity for creators and artists to make NFTs as affordable as possible.

    Matthew Beck, partner at Solana Ventures, said.

    Blockchain is not geographically limited and shows that wherever artists are located, there is a global community behind them. We are excited to support this collaboration and introduce new people to the power of NFT and digital art.

    Timothius Martin, Chief Marketing Officer at Pintu, adds.

    Visual arts have always been an important part of Indonesian culture. We have many talented artists whose work may not receive the exposure and appreciation they deserve. Through blockchain technology, we believe that artists can express their work to a global audience in the form of digital art (NFTs) and be rewarded with cryptocurrency assets.Pintu and Solana Network share the same vision to support Indonesian artists.
