Lugano NFT Week: Lugano is becoming a Blockchain & Crypto-Friendly City
From 15–21 November Lugano Living Lab, the digital innovation laboratory of the City of Lugano, has promoted an unprecedented exhibition that explores the fascinating world of NFT and Crypto Art with an exhibition, events and dedicated workshops.
Lugano is increasingly a Blockchain & Crypto-Friendly City. After the launch at the end of 2020 of the MyLugano app, the LVGA Points citizen payment token and the recent creation of 3Achain, the institutional blockchain promoted by the city, this time it is the turn of the NFTs with a review between art and technology entirely dedicated to the understanding of this emerging and extremely topical phenomenon.
Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a cryptographic system that allows you to provide proof of authenticity and ownership. Applied in the field of digital art, they make it possible to certify the uniqueness and scarcity of a work, which as digital is easily replicable or reproducible, but which is, so to speak, made rare by its registration in the Blockchain. NFT is therefore not the work or even an artistic phenomenon, but the corresponding certification registered on the blockchain.
