The popular NFT artist Mason Rothschild talked about the MetaBirkins project. This project attracted the attention of multiple media outlets due to Hermès filing a trademark lawsuit against this unique project in the NFT industry. During a conversation with CoinDesk, the artist shared his views on this collection and provided the community with updates about what is coming.
NFT Artist Mason Rothschild Talks About MetaBirkins Project
During the conversation with CoinDesk, Rothschild talked about the NFT collection of 100 handbags. These NFT are special, and they were released back in 2021 after the decision of Hermès of launching its handbag signature. Since that moment, the French company has been in a legal conflict with the artist, which is now fighting for the future of NFTs and art.
A few weeks ago, the jury ruled in Hermès’ favour, a decision that has been appealed by the legal team helping Rothschild. The goal is to fight in order to defend the NFT industry and artists that have created unique art pieces and that want to innovate in this industry.
Currently, he is working on multiple Web3 projects creating art and other pieces. There are new projects that he is working on that could see the light in the future as well. Moreover, he founded his own studio and an agency that was launched already back in 2021 when Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency in the market, reached an all-time high of $69,000.
At the same time, the artist has been working to integrate non-fungible tokens into his art, something that allowed him to show the best of himself. As he explains, most of his art pieces include irony, which is just a way to express himself on different social issues.
During the conversation with CoinDesk, he talked as well about the future and what he sees with different projects today:
“When I see projects today, I see them kind of get a little stagnant when their only strength is their own IP. What our solution is… we’ll do about four projects a year, and collections get access to all those. They’ll all be in our voice. They’ll all be in our style and level of quality.”
Trump NFT Sales Soar 46%
Trump NFT sales soar as Trump sharply criticized the decision of his indictment calling it political persecution. According to data shared by OpenSea, there have been 459 sales with volumes growing as much as 461% during the last 24 hours alone. This shows that there has been a growing interest in these NFTs as Trump’s figure seems to be gathering media attention.
The NFT market is now behaving as a thermometer of how the market feels. This increase in the trading volume of Trump’s NFTs is just an example of how this industry continues to grow.
NFT Industry Expansion
The NFT industry has expanded in recent years, especially in 2021. One of the reasons why NFTs have become so popular is because they provide artists with a new way to monetize their digital creations.
In the past, it was difficult for artists to make money from digital art because it could be easily copied and shared without permission. NFTs have changed this by allowing artists to create unique digital assets that can be bought and sold on the blockchain.
This has created a new revenue stream for artists and has opened up new possibilities for creative expression in the digital world.
Another reason why NFTs are so popular is that they are seen as a way to democratize the art world. In the traditional art world, the value of a piece of art is often determined by a small group of elite collectors, critics, and curators.
NFTs, on the other hand, allow anyone to buy and own a piece of art, regardless of their social status or wealth. This has led to a more diverse and inclusive art market, where artists from all backgrounds have the opportunity to succeed.
As the NFT industry continues to grow and evolve, we can expect to see even more creative ways for fans to connect with their favourite artists and support their work. This is especially true for projects linked to fan tokens such as football clubs or even artists such as Rothschild.
