Digital Confirmed Rights + Physical Collection: Explore a New Paradigm of NFT Empowerment with Maze
On April 9, 2022, the Maze platform (MAZE — NFT Marketplace) user Lifetime purchased the oil painting NFT collection “Morning silence” at a price of 2000BTM. The NFT is from AsyaZuk, a young artist who has settled in Maze. Subsequently, Lifetime contacted the Maze platform, hoping that Maze could make the NFT into a physical collection. Maze immediately found the manufacturer to customize, and the NFT collection “Morning silence” finally appeared in the form of real objects.
The joint display form of digital + physical objects has given the Web3 world new inspiration for the development of digital rights confirmation art, and also triggered Maze’s new thinking on the new paradigm of NFT empowerment.
In this regard, Maze also had a dialogue with Lifetime:
Hi, it’s a great pleasure to get in touch with you. After seeing your NFT physical collection, Maze also has a series of new thoughts on the development model of digital + physical objects. First of all, I would like to ask you what was the original intention of purchasing this NFT work at that time?
Hello, I have been looking for and buying high-quality NFTs on the Maze platform for my own crypto assets. The opportunity to buy “Morning silence” came from my participation in a community AMA co-hosted by Maze and this young artist. At that time, the young artist’s painting style, artistic experience, and her understanding of the pioneering and trendy NFT field made me curious about her works. And the tranquility and remoteness revealed in “Morning silence” also fascinated me. I think that no matter how ever-changing the external form of a work of art is, the spirit and attitude contained in it are the most attractive to buyers.
Thank you, I totally agree with your opinion. Whether it is physical or digital, in addition to the external form of circulation, works of art can continue to circulate in the market, and the core of value preservation and even appreciation must be the work itself. Doing NFT is not only about advocating fashion or creation, but also using NFT to release one’s true feelings, and can simply understand it, resonate and create value. So, we are also very curious, how did you come to contact Maze to make NFT works into physical collections?
After buying “Morning silence”, I am also thinking about how to connect the virtual digital rights with my real life. As an old player of Web3, I have always believed that Web3 should be connected to the real world, not a complete cyberspace garden. So I thought of trying to turn NFTs into physical collectibles. I am very happy to see the real thing made by Maze. I like the real photo frame and design very much. Thank you very much for the assistance and service from Maze. I think it’s going to be a really fun way to play.
Yes, we were also very pleasantly surprised after seeing the real thing. This was a very successful attempt, and it also gave Maze a lot of inspiration for how to connect web3 with reality. In the follow-up, Maze will also consider how to start from the physical + virtual mode to give users more updates and better experiences. I look forward to seeing you and MazeE witnessing the infinite possibilities of NFT empowering new paradigms in the near future.
Maze is a trading platform that integrates NFT minting, trading and gifting, and is the first radical trading model in the world. In a radical market, there is no monopoly private ownership, all items are permanently in a state of fixed price auction, the highest bidder wins, and there is no end. Radical auctions keep NFT assets in a permanent state of global circulation, which is fair to all participants, so that the real price and demand of NFT can be quickly reflected. In addition, Maze builds a large bottom layer with an aggressive trading model, and at the same time has a variety of ways to invest to earn income, which is very friendly to artists, collectors, and NFT investors.
AsyaZuk is a young artist from Moscow. Although only 21 years old, Asya already has extensive experience in cryptocurrency investment and arbitrage. Before joining Maze, she often browsed the information of the top NFT trading market and has a keen perception of the Web3 world. “Morning silence” is one of her first works on Maze.
“Quiet morning when you don’t have to hurry anywhere.” — is her interpretation of her own work. The overlapping light and shadow of the mountain village in the early morning endows the silent cups, plates, bottles and pots with tranquil power, making the viewers unconsciously slow down their hasty pace and perceive the vastness of nature and inner peace. The concepts conveyed by Asya and the works also made us think that doing NFT is not only about advocating fashion or creation, but also using NFT to release our true feelings, and can simply understand it, resonate and create value.
We are seeing the rise of massive online experiences and the emergence of a new world of decentralization through social media, virtual worlds, multiplayer games, and digital art. With the expansion of anonymity freedom and decentralization, 100% digital assets and objects are also constantly appearing in the field of Web3. Items created in virtual worlds or games, posts shared by celebrities or works published by artists are becoming the norm, becoming more popular and more valuable.
For NFTs, NFTs are portable, scarcity-verifiable, and programmable digital collectibles, which can be virtual weapons, stakes, virtual land, data records on social media, or even simple digital avatars. The era of selling millions of pictures alone has passed, and future NFTs will definitely be value-enabled. The new model of digital confirmation + physical display gives NFT value empowerment new possibilities. Buyers can make the purchased NFTs into physical collections and hang them in the living room at home for display. Similarly, artists can also hang the NFTs in the art gallery. Exhibitors only need to scan the QR code to purchase the digital confirmation of the artworks. It is a two-way connection between web3 and reality.
How to connect virtual and reality, and connect Web3 with reality, is the mission that Maze has been thinking about. This physical + virtual joint attempt also gave Maze more inspiration and execution space in gameplay and product design.
About future platform construction and artist cooperation, Maze will think about and launch more new paradigms of NFT empowerment.
