Activation of collections and assets via a Web3 model of engagement to cultivate the next generation of collectors and patrons.
Under ARTIFACTs by SCMP, we have successfully launched the 1997 Premium Series and HK25, showcasing the daily A1 covers assets and compilation of 25 years of the city’s history. Through these two collections, we’ve preserved the city’s history on the blockchain, provided collectors the opportunity to rediscover history, and encouraged our collectors to share these valuable assets with the public for the first time ever.
We have partnered with RMS Titanic and Hong Kong-based Venture Smart Financial Holdings to preserve the artifacts from the iconic Titanic Ocean Liner immutably on the blockchain. This groundbreaking initiative not only ensures the preservation of historical treasures but also invites the general public to partake in shared ownership. The Artifact Collection consists of digital collectibles of the physical artifacts salvaged from previous and ongoing expeditions.
In an exclusive partnership with The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) we have pioneered the world's first symphonic experience in the metaverse. Together, we revolutionize the way people interact with music by reimagining the sounds of the symphony. We bring unparalleled opportunities to engage with the harmonies, melodies, and emotions of classical music in innovative and captivating ways to the community.
