Stockholm, Sweden, 26th March 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, The auction of NFTs created by one of Sweden’s most prominent artists Ernst Billgren was presented to the top business and art community in Sweden and received overwhelmingly positive feedback while continuing to attract multiple bids online. The NFT solution was developed by Technicorum Holdings, a global investment and compliance company headquartered in Singapore, specialising in blockchain-based digital assets, and launched by Tradera, the leading circular economy marketplace in Sweden.
Leaders of Sweden’s business and art community gathered to celebrate the launch of the first of its kind NFT auction in Sweden. Ernst Billgren’s physical artworks and NFTs were showcased at Taverna Brillo in Stockholm. The event signified a new step in the Swedish art community where NFTs become integrated into traditional art.
The first NFT auction in Sweden has already received over 160 bids since the opening of the auction. Bidding offers can be submitted directly on Tradera’s auction website until March 27th, 2022. The auction includes a digital art piece, a physical painting, and a text about art written by Ernst Billgren. The NFT series is curated by Jan Åman and Daniel Daboczy (CEO of Technicorum Holdings), in a series of twelve works of art called the “Twelve Gates,” with the first artwork being called “EGO”. Ernst Billgren’s physical oil painting “EGO” is extended into a digital world through NFTs.
All artworks have a unique digital smart contract deployed by Technicorum. The digital collectible is programmed on open-source blockchain software with a unique digital signature that makes it impossible for it to be exchanged interchangeably. The full ownership of the artwork and transaction will be recorded on the blockchain network and made transparent to the public.
