Believe it or not, it has been exactly a year since NFT became a buzzword in the art world.‌‌

But, when Wikipedia recently classified NFTs as "Not Art' the big fuss around the news indicated that those of us not native in the crypto world are still struggling to perceive NFTs for what they really are! ‌‌‌‌

That is the reason why at Artpool are launching our second report NFTs one year on: What art professionals and organizations still need to know. We understand our biggest mission is to make the crypto-world accessible to our community. ‌‌‌‌

Published six months ago, our first report demystified what NFTs are as well as covered the most important subjects we believe must be highlighted when talking about new blockchain technologies and art.‌‌‌ In this freshly published second report, we continue to explore the possibilities NFTs present to the institutional art world a year after the NFT boom in March 2021.

We are not aiming for a recap of what happened over the past 12 months, rather gather critical views with a more mature perspective from artists, art professionals, and crypto professionals from different parts of the globe who have been involved with art and NFTs throughout this year. Of course, the buzzwords of the moment - Metaverse and Web3 - are there too: NFTs made it possible for the Metaverse to finally be at the end of the tunnel!‌‌‌‌

Written by journalist and Artpool Communication Associate Julia Flamingo, this report is the outcome of the online symposium ‘Multi-resourced NFTs: What is next for art institutions, collectors and artists’ hosted by Artpool on February 2nd, 2022 and moderated by art writer, critic and Curtain editor-in-chief, Cristina Sanchez-Kozyreva. ‌‌‌‌

Be sure, these easy-to-read texts will help anyone interested in understanding the construction of this whole new universe of NFTs!‌‌‌‌
