Crypto.com launching new platform
Crypto.com has announced Crypto.com/NFT, a platform launching this Friday, March 26th dedicated to delivering unique content from popular artists, musicians, athletes, and sports. Poised to be the world’s largest and most user-friendly NFT platform, the site is committed to partnering with creators to develop the most compelling content for this new medium.
Crypto.com is proud to have curated an A-list roster of mainstream and digital artists collaborating to release new and unique work for its invite-only platform, including Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One, Axel Mansoor (the King Of The Clubhouse), Bag Raiders, BossLogic, Boy George, Jonathan Monaghan with Nathan Evans (of No. 1 single Sea Shanty “Wellerman” fame), KCamp, Klarens Malluta with Lionel Richie, KLOUD, Mr. Brainwash, OPUS, Snoop Dogg, among others.
Boy George’s drop unleashes his creativity and brings together animated and still versions of his own paintings together with his iconic music, representing the full breadth of his artistic output.
“I think life turned me into art,” Boy George shares. “My role models were both artistic types and hard-working types. I’ve painted myself and others. I have painted myself into a corner. I love metaphors and mystery and crypto sounds like klepto so that makes me a crypto maniac. Art is like a partner? Can you live with it? Digital art is a new emotion and it can be very musical. I’m mixing all of the things I do together, music, art, fashion, poetry, and anything else it leads to. I have stopped refusing to be influenced.”
Artists are encouraged to inquire about listing their works at Crypto.com/NFT.
“As a fan and collector of art, I have always looked for unique pieces and Klarens Malluta’s work is truly amazing. Looking forward to collaborating with him on a digital piece and with a little ‘All Night Long’ in this new medium,” says Lionel Richie.
“I feel honored to have the chance to collaborate with Lionel Richie on this artwork; it’s inspired by my memory of first hearing his music on TV when I was a child growing up in Albania,” adds Klarens Malluta on his collaboration with Lionel Richie. “The music felt like a completely different reality to me then, so collaborating together feels surreal. I tried to capture that same dreamy feeling in the visuals and am excited to share this piece with the world.”
