The auction of NFTs, created by one of Sweden’s most prominent artists, Ernst Billgren, was presented to the top business and arts community in Sweden and received overwhelmingly positive feedback as it continued to attract multiple bids online. The NFT solution was developed by Technicorum Holdings, a global investment and compliance firm headquartered in Singapore, specializing in blockchain-based digital assets, and launched by Tradera, the leading circular economy marketplace in Sweden.
Leaders of the Swedish business and arts community gathered to celebrate the launch of the first of its kind NFT auction in Sweden. Ernst Billgren’s physical artworks and NFTs were exhibited at Taverna Brillo in Stockholm. The event marked a new step in the Swedish art community where NFTs are integrated into traditional art.
The first NFT auction in Sweden has already received more than 160 bids since the auction opened. Bids can be submitted directly on Tradera’s auction website until March 27, 2022. The auction includes a digital artwork, a physical painting and a text about art written by Ernst Billgren. The NFT series has been curated by Jan Åman and Daniel Daboczy (CEO of Technicorum Holdings), in a series of twelve artworks called the ‘Twelve Gates’, with the first artwork being called ‘EGO’. Ernst Billgren’s physical oil painting “EGO” is expanded into a digital world through NFTs.
All artworks have a unique digital smart contract that is deployed by Technicorum. The digital collectible is programmed on open-source blockchain software with a unique digital signature that makes it impossible to be interchangeable. Full ownership of the artwork and transaction is recorded on the blockchain network and made transparent to the public.
