With the rise of NFT (Non-fungible tokens) art values, online art and collectible marketplaces like Foundation have become a haven for digital artists to monetize and showcase their artwork. This phenomenon is rapidly expanding to the physical world as traditional auction houses like Christie’s and Sotheby’s have taken steps to merge with the virtual world by auctioning digital art and accepting crypto.

In this second episode of the Yuen Campus /pɒp/Asia series, Lindsay Howard, Head of Community at Foundation, and Noah Davis, Head of Digital Sales from Christie’s will join Professor Randy Kroszner to explore how traditional and virtual art selling platforms are impacting the art world and changing the economy one token at a time.
