OUR PROJECT CREATES A SPACE WHERE THE NEXT GENERATION OF ARTISTS CAN SELL THEIR WORK AS NFTS. THROUGH OUR GROWING RELATIONSHIPS WITH TOP ART AND DESIGN UNIVERSITIES, WE ARE ABLE TO CURATE A SET OF PREMIER ARTISTS, WHO WE DEEM “PROSPECTS,” TO CONTRIBUTE 1-5 PIECES TO OUR MONTHLY ART AUCTIONS. HOLDERS CAN EXHIBIT THEIR PIECES IN OUR METAVERSE GALLERY TO EARN PASSIVE INCOME AND SHOW OFF THEIR COLLECTION.
The Prospect Gallery is aware of the current state of the environment and the effects NFTs can negatively have on it. That is why we chose to use the Ethereum Blockchain which is moving to a Proof of Stake consensus mechanism meaning it will reduce its carbon footprint by 99.95% in early August of 2022. To further take action The Prospect Gallery has taken steps to aim to be a carbon negative program with a strategic donation plan to the Green Umbrella organization.
Founded at the University of Cincinnati’s DAAP program, we believed the NFT industry needed a change. That change starts by assisting and educating students about NFTs. Our goal is to break down the barriers that turn people away from crypto and NFTs. DAAP supported our vision and believes in our mission to get the public more informed on NFTs and cryptocurrency.
*Although we work very closely with the DAAP, Cryptoeconomics lab, and NFT media lab programs at UC we do not receive any funding.
