From Cave Paintings to Pixel Art – NFTs as a Game Changer in Art (History)

On the 14th of September 2022, the European Blockchain Center (EBC) invited four professionals from the art world to an open panel debate on how non-fungible tokens (NFTs) influence the way art is created, sold, exhibited, and perceived. To kick-start the discussion each professional gave some insights with the help of a presentation.

The first presentation was by Jonas Kasper Jensen an NFT artist and research assistant at the EBC, who talked about how he utilizes the applications of blockchain technology in his artworks and displays it in the physical and virtual world.
