PolyOne, an exciting new NFT marketplace, will run off the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains, as they look to propel global art into the NFT stratosphere…
PolyOne will launch in spectacular fashion today, Monday 21 March 2022 as the ‘first arts and entertainment NFT platform with a Global Mission’.
The launch named the ‘Genesis Drop’, will take place live from ‘the cradle of civilisation’ in Erbil, Kurdistan, Iraq, as the works of renowned global artists are projected onto the ancient citadel.
These one-of-one NFTs will form a breath-taking outdoor ‘museum’ at the historical site and will be available via PolyOne’s marketplace.
The location of the Genesis Drop is no ordinary place, but a UNESCO World Heritage site within one of the oldest cities on the planet. Proceeds of PolyOne online NFT ticket sales will benefit refugees of the wars in Ukraine and Iraq.
This symbolic event, taking place on the day of ‘Nowruz’ – the Persian new year – will mark a new development in the journey of NFTs, which are transcending the boundaries of the digital world and taking on real-world significance.
PolyOne revealed plans to curate NFT collections for ‘hundreds’ of charities and give creators the option of making donations to their own, chosen cause.
The art-focused platform will put 100% of their net profits back into ‘Global One’ – a DeFi (de-centralized finance) organization whose mission is to finance projects that ‘either elevate the standard of living in our communities or address matters of global concern’.
PolyOne launches 30 NFT artists from 19 countries featuring a dynamic and eclectic array of work from Average_CPU/ Daphne Alexiadou, Thomas Albos, Alexandre Azevedo, Tishk Barzanji, Finn Berenbroek, Children of Eden, Grammy-Nominated singer Ashley Tamar Davis, Saeko Ehara, Yoann De Geetere, Danae Gosset, Ali Hadian, Vartika Jangid, Balkan Karisman, Kynd, Laney La, Lynn Lin, Tomas Loewy, Francesco Misceo, Richard Mourant, Carlos Munnoz, Porkchop, Murat Sayginer, Jeremy Nathan Tisser, Carlo Vega, Jasan Waldura, Amra Faye Wright, Yyork, and more. Fans can follow, engage, browse, buy, collect, and resell these scarce, original, one-of-a-kind NFT works through Polyone.io.
Art will take precedence in PolyOne, which seeks to curate and elevate art into a realm of global significance. They aim to transform artistic exposure and recognition through their platform.
Shawn Emamjomeh, PolyOne Founder, said: “All arts tell a story and art is a pursuit of truth. In a time when we have a deficit of truth, we need more art.”
“NFTs are about property ownership and property ownership is about the Magna Carter which led to all of our democratic movements and society being able to develop democracy.”
“I created PolyOne to distribute a story.”
The live exhibition, a free, public event, will provide a forum of expression from an array of “voices” – global artists whose work will represent a statement of peace.
PolyOne genesis drop
Genesis Drop NFTs will unlock a host of benefits such as exclusive artwork, free airdrops and access to the NFT incubator spaces.
The drop also gives priority access to purchase PolyOne’s own ‘XOplanets’ NFT series, which celebrates the launch of the Webb Telescope – a monumental scientific feat – on Christmas Day 2021.
PolyOne, with their strategic partners ‘Trendland.com’, ‘Braw Haus’ and ‘Parlor Gallery’, will host public art installations and provide physical community ‘incubator spaces’ for NFT artists in Brooklyn and Asbury Park, New Jersey.
These incubator spaces will serve as hubs for collaborations, classes and lively gatherings.
The PolyOne marketplace will allow users to exchange mint, hold, authenticate and trade NFTs via the Ethereum blockchain or its layer 2, environmentally friendly solution Polygon.
