Art Basel Miami 2022 is officially in full swing, which means The Gateway 2022 has also gone live. In collaboration with Mana Common and MoonPay, nft now officially kicked off The Gateway: A Web3 Metropolis in the heart of downtown Miami, and it’s already become one of Web3’s most important events of 2022. Top names from our planned programming include panels from Porsche, Vayner3, and many more.
After offering some of our VIPs — a selection of the NFT space’s most beloved artists and community leaders — an inside look at the week to come, doors opened for Web3’s general public in downtown Miami’s Dupont building.
A months-long process of planning and buildingcame to full fruition as the week’s guests walked into one of the twelve Miami buildings we’ve occupied for this massive undertaking. Want to see all that went in to making this a reality? Check out this recap of the build out process.
Deca holds rare NFT treasure hunt, XCOPY pieces awaiting discovery
Wednesday morning saw NFT marketplace Deca mark the start of an NFT treasure hunt running through the entire geographical area of Miami Art Week 2022. Up for grabs are editions of XCOPY pieces strewn throughout the city, hidden in QR codes.
Each day until Friday, a “mysterious” map will be posted on Twitter featuring hints as to where these QR codes will be. Eventgoers need to act fast though — each XCOPY NFT will only be redeemable up to a maximum of 15 times each day. Claimed NFTs will be opened up for minting starting at 10:00 p.m. ET later on Wednesday, with a cutoff at the same time on December 3.
Tyler Hobbs holds showcase for a new generative art collection
Earlier on Wednesday, noted generative NFT artist Tyler Hobbs unveiled his latest collection, ioStream, at Art Basel Miami on Wednesday — a 12-piece collection of colored 6-color screen prints at a booth in the Vertu Fine Art gallery in Boca, Miami. The exhibit will run until Miami Art Week’s close, on December 4.
Perhaps best known for his featured scripts on Art Blocks, the collection will see Hobbs given the opportunity to curate the output of his generative scripts. Of course, the availability of pieces from his latest collection marks a significant departure from the artist’s digital oeuvre.
This appearance will also coincide with a scheduled appearance at The Gateway later in the week, where the artist will feature pieces from his collection QQL at the Web3 tentpole event.
