Cointelegraph to auction digital collectibles inspired by famous works of art

Published on by Cointele | Published on

Cointelegraph is the most widely read cryptocurrency publication in the world - but even though we're proud of our words, sometimes a picture is worth a thousand of them.

Cointelegraph illustrations are part of the mythos and lore of cryptocurrency today, and the accessibility, humor and sheer exuberance of our images have helped draw countless numbers of crypto converts into the industry.

For the first time, we're offering our readers the opportunity to purchase some of our illustrators' unmistakable artwork on, the world's first community-owned digital collectibles marketplace.

Inspired by artists from Salvador Dalí to Leonardo da Vinci, our illustrators have crafted over two dozen nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, that combine cryptocurrency and blockchain concepts with the most iconic murals and oil paintings from the Western world.

Today, Nov. 18, Cointelegraph will hold its first auction of single edition NFTs, based on famous works of art.

As one of the first to use Rarible's auction model, our goal is to support the growing NFT ecosystem.

With Cointelegraph NFTs, you'll have secure, verifiable ownership of the art you purchase - and the ability to sell or trade the unique NFT. Each piece of artwork is based on ERC-721, the Non-Fungible Token Standard, and is assigned an individual token that resides on the Ethereum blockchain.

To participate in the auction, visit Cointelegraph's Rarible page.

The auction will run through Nov. 30, Cyber Monday.
