The National Palace Museum in Taiwan is keeping up with the NFT (non-homogenized token) wave, collaborating with eight local original illustrators on 22 pieces of NFT merchandise, with the first wave starting with “Corgi Ponpon and Best Friend”, releasing five pieces of NFT merchandise in the form of flat paintings, each piece of NFT is limited to one copy and priced at 0.5 ETH (ethereum), equivalent to NTD 38,000. Each NFT is limited to one copy and priced at 0.5ETH (ethereum), equivalent to NTD38,000. The first appearance immediately attracted the attention of netizens, but people in the coin circle believe that even the Forbidden City tickets are free or gift store discounts and other empowerment, “although very cute, but too expensive”.
The National Palace Museum cooperated with Lootex, a domestic NFT trading platform, to release the first wave of five NFT co-branded products by the illustrator “Corgi Ponpon and Best Friend”, which transformed the illustrated characters into the “Ten Dogs” of Lang Shining of the Qing Dynasty. The illustrations depict landscapes, combining modern creations with traditional relics. Each NFT product is limited to one copy and costs 0.5 ETH (etheric coins), equivalent to NTD 38,000.
In the eyes of people who still have no idea about NFT, many people could not accept it for a while. Wang Jing-Hong (TonyQ), who is running for the three reps on behalf of Shiley, used to be a well-known engineer in the information circle, to which Wang Jing-Hong believes, “The value of NFT is determined by the collector’s bid, and the limited edition published by the Forbidden City may attract some collectors to collect to commemorate this traditional collaboration with the crypto world.”
Why choose local creators to collaborate on NFT, rather than using the more classic works of the institution’s collection, the National Palace Museum responded that this NFT goods by the Palace to provide artifacts material, and cultural content curation Institute to submit Taiwan’s original IP artists to handle the project cooperation. The debut focused on the museum education promotion perspective, and to encourage and support Taiwan’s local original IP.
