The Haas Brothers on unquestioning love with the Multibeast NFT, its more than an art collection
In the wide world of NFTs, artists, and creators have a multitude of ways in which they can express themselves via their projects. NFTs are tokenized versions of assets that can be traded on a blockchain, the digital ledger technology behind cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum. NFT collectors come in all shapes and sizes. NFT collectors do admire hard-working artists, who create astonishing tokens. But there’s more to the story. NFT collectors also recognize the artists, who are conscious of their works’ rarity and hold a predictable minting cadence.
CryptoPunks and the BAYC are such prestigious collections. CryptoPunks is 10,000 unique collectible characters with proof of ownership stored on the Ethereum blockchain. This is inspired by the modern CryptoArt movement. BAYC stands for Bored Ape Yacht Club, it is a collection of 10000 unique Bored Ape NFTs unique digital collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain, which are usually airdropped for free to wallets holding a BAYC NFT. NFTs create opportunities for new business models that didn’t exist before. Artists can attach stipulations to an NFT that ensures they get some of the proceeds every time it gets resold, meaning they benefit if their work increases in value.
The Haas Brothers: The MultiBeast collection
Collecting NFTs mirrors how art collection works in the real world, with collectors and DAOs pooling together millions of dollars in crypto to finance the purchase of one-of-one pieces from creators. And Art Blocks project guaranteed the uniqueness of NFTs minted on their platform as essential components of experiencing. Art Blocks is leading a new generation of artists. Hosting projects from today’s most innovative digital artists, our platform combines creative coding with blockchain technology to establish a new paradigm for the creation and ownership of art.
The Haas Brothers are hoping to answer with their upcoming debut into the NFT space: The MultiBeast collection. The Beasts series is a set of works that represents freedom, self-expression, individuality, and identity. And they create the kind of otherworldly, anthropomorphic sculptures which, despite being fiendishly freaky, seem blissfully unconnected to the harder, earthier problems we mortals all experience.
This might seem like another well-crafted art collection, there’s much more to this project than meets the eye. The Haas Brothers are among the artists contributing to Unquestioning Love, a high-profile sale featuring a truly incredible selection of contemporary art, at Christie’s next week to benefit the New York City AIDS Memorial. And they are dubbing pieces from the MultiBeast collection Unique Digital Portraits. Each Unique Digital portrait in the 8,888-piece collection is set to feature one of 130 trillion potential combinations of traits, which will be determined by the users themselves.
As per this project, the holders will ultimately decide the rarity and composition of the NFT collection. Those registered as eligible to partake in the mint must first answer a 30-40 question personality test prepared by the Haas brothers. This test is designed to be a visual and social art experience and unconventional tactics will capture your personality in a matter of minutes.
