Purchasing an Ethernal Gate NFT will serve as a membership to Arts DAO, a community led by a committee of NFT experts, curators, and investors that seeks to achieve appreciation in value whilst offering rewards to members with quarterly returns on NFTs.
Apart from enabling community members to get access to exclusive NFT events across MENA Arts DAO also allows them to cast their vote on matters concerning the community’s social activities and the NFT artists that DAO plans to feature in the future.
Anas Bhurtun, co-founder and CEO, Arts DAO expressed:
The UAE is home to one of the strongest and biggest NFT communities in the world thanks to Dubai positioning itself as a crypto hub and attracting a lot of young, like-minded people who are passionate about Web3.”
He also spoke about the significance of this collection to the Arts DAO community, which grew organically with a group of like-minded NFT collectors meeting up every month. Hence the “Gates” in the name of this generative art pieces’ collection resembles the entryway to the Arts DAO’s metaverse.
Speaking of the collection, the 2018 UAE resident artist award winner Kristel Bechara said, “The (Ethernal) gates are my recreations of iconic gates and doorways from fiction and history, while the props in black and white are inspired by the vivid terminology used in the crypto world.”
This project is incredibly special to me, as it is my first generative NFT art series which I am glad to be collaborating with Arts DAO.
