World-renowned auction house, Christie’s, has courted the NFT world for the best part of a year. But now, it will take this love affair one step further. In association with NFT powerhouse, OpenSea, Christie’s will curate its first-ever on-chain NFT auction.
Dubbed “Christie’s X OpenSea,” proceedings will kick off on December 1st when the artworks on sale are available for perusal. All bidding starts on December 4 for some of the finest artworks on the blockchain. Art aficionados and individuals with an Ethereum-shaped hole burning in their pocket will then have until December 7 to seal the deal on their favourite piece.
A grand array of fine NFTs is made up of individual artworks and sought-after collectibles. As such, enthusiasts can pick up a genuine EtherRock, or a Tom Sachs rocket. Or, a one-of-one masterpiece from the likes of Mad Dog Jones or Fvckrender. Furthermore, as Christie’s is in the habit of curating some of the most audacious NFT sales around, this will also be one for the spectators too.
All the artworks on offer are curated by Christie’s in-house team of experts, plus a few industry specialists to provide additional guidance. Christie’s head of Digital and Online sales, Noah Davis, is excited by the prospect of this new collaboration, stating:
“With this collaboration, we are bringing the Christie’s brand boldly onto the blockchain. Our collaboration with OpenSea allows us to combine our expert curation and prestigious provenance with the convenience of decentralization. My hope is that this will be the beginning of a new era for NFT sales at Christie’s, where this amazing technology can be deployed to its full potential and help to onboard even more traditional contemporary art collectors to Web3.”
