- The collection is called The Oath
- And yesterday it was offered for free
Great Britain celebrates the coronation of the new monarch Charles III. In honor of this they suggested limited edition NFT.
It was published by the Evening Standard. It is a popular newspaper read daily by millions of Londoners.
The partner of the project was the artist Trevor Jones. The collection is called The Oath, and the tokens themselves could be minted for free on the Nifty Gateway NFT platform until Sunday midnight.
The Oath is a tokenized and animated version of Jones’ painting The Oath. It depicts the Crown of St. Edward against the backdrop of a London street and the national flag. This is a photo of a real solid gold crown weighing 2.2 kg. It has crowned British monarchs since the time of Charles II in 1661.
Here is how artist Trevor Jones himself comments on the collection:
“I wanted to make a specific gift for the public. Anyone, anywhere can create one NFT for free.
People can keep it for themselves, they can sell it, give it to a friend. They can do whatever they want with NFTs.”
Jones was one of the first artists to master the art of NFT. And his collection The Bitcoin Angel is considered one of the most successful projects on Nifty Gateway. In total, before the release of The Oath, the man had already created 8 NFT collections on this platform.
Recall that last week the iconic London auction house Sotheby’s announced the launch of an NFT platform for secondary sales. This will allow artists like Jones to receive royalties after the initial sale of their art tokens.
