The South China Morning Post has Established the NFT Standard for Historical Assets

China’s oldest news organization has established ARTIFACT, a new blockchain standard for connecting, discovering, and collecting “historical and archival objects.”

The new NFT standard, according to the publication, was intended to set the groundwork for the public to trade and own parts of history. The objective is to build NFTs based on the South China Morning Post’s (SCMP) century of journalism since its first edition in 1903.

One of ARTIFACT’s goals is to “advocate a standardized metadata framework for preserving accounts of history and historical assets on the blockchain as NFTs,” according to the Litepaper. The Washington Post argues that the history it has covered “should be immutable” and that “ownership of these digitized and tokenized assets, which are part of our collective human experience, should be decentralized.”

The SCMP has partnered with The Sandbox, an Animoca Brands-developed virtual world that runs on the blockchain. Using Sandbox’s NFT metaverse, the duo will strive to digitally recreate significant sites and events from Hong Kong’s past. “So our ambition is that over time, we will construct metaverse environments for people to experience ancient Hong Kong, historical China, and to learn about the beauty and complexity of this area of the world,” said Gary Liu, the SCMP’s chief executive officer.

“History’s Initial Drafts”

Using SCMP’s historical assets as examples, the litepaper breaks down what an ARTIFACT’s metadata structure will look like. In this example, the study uses three different forms of NFTs. The first is an A1 newspaper cover, the second is a colorized snapshot from the paper, and the third is a tangible item. The physical asset cited in this case is an ancient Linotype printing machine that the newspaper owns. According to the description, the physical ARTIFACT was the same model used by SCMP from its inception until 1971, when it was replaced.

Each sample comes with authenticity and information about the historical assets’ producers and the date they were minted into NFTs. Along with the NFT, other details such as the location of events, the relevant people engaged, and even a rarity level is provided. The editions, or rarity, of the individual work, are among the most relevant numbers on the list. The litepaper is available in editions of 10, 100, and 1000 copies.

The report says that ARTIFACTS can be discovered and gathered using various “Finds” bundles of NFTs. The public will be able to purchase these “Finds” regularly, with each one focusing on a different topic. Every ARTIFACT in these bundles is put at random and may include scarce and valuable historical artifacts.

SAND, FLOW, and AUDIO — NFT Tokens Start Moving Upward

FLOW (FLOW) and The Sandbox (SAND) have broken out of a long-term declining resistance line.

Published

on

The $0.87 horizontal support area has been regained by Audius (AUDIO).

All three of these NFTs have shown the ability to resume their upward movements in the direction of their nearest resistances.

SAND

Since March 27, SAND has been falling alongside a declining resistance line. It broke out above this line on July 3 and achieved a high of $0.692 on July 17. Just above the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance line, the high was set.

After generating a long upper wick, SAND was unable to maintain the upward movement and decreased.

Technical indications are still positive despite the decline. The RSI and MACD are both above zero. Although the Stochastic oscillator is rising, it has yet to make a bearish cross.

The coin has already completed a five-wave bullish structure (orange) with an extended fifth wave, according to the shorter-term 4-hour chart (black).

It then bounced after retracing all the way to the $0.35-$0.38 support region. The 0.618 Fib retracement support level and a horizontal support area form the support.

SAND must remain above the $0.35-$0.38 support region for the upward trend to continue. It is anticipated to break out from the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level at $0.61 and advance towards $0.90 if successful.

Summary

  • SAND broke out from a descending resistance line.
  • Short-term indicators are bullish.

FLOW

Since reaching a low of $6.01 on June 22, FLOW has been steadily rising. It broke out of a declining resistance line that has been there since April on July 7.

The coin continued to rise until it hit the 0.382 Fib retracement resistance level at $20, where it was rejected.

Technical indicators are still bullish despite the decrease, as the MACD is positive and the RSI is above 50.

The 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level at $20.80 is the next barrier.

A completed bullish impulse and subsequent A-B-C corrective structure can be seen on the shorter-term six-hour chart (black).

SAND’s decline slowed as it hit the 0.618 Fib retracement support level at $11.51. Since then, the token has been steadily increasing in value.

Both the MACD and the RSI are growing, indicating that the upward trend will continue.

As a result, FLOW will probably seek to break out above $20 again, possibly increasing to $28.80.

Summary

  • FLOW has broken out from a descending resistance line.
  • It is facing resistance at $20 and $28.80

AUDIO

The price of FLOW has broken through a declining resistance line.
Since March 27, when it hit an all-time high of $4.99, AUDIO has been declining. The declining trend continued until June 22, when the price hit a low of $0.59. This has resulted in a breakdown from the $0.87 horizontal support level (red icon).

The price of FLOW has broken through a declining resistance line.
However, the token quickly reclaimed the level and has now confirmed it as support (green icon). If the upward trend continues, the nearest point of resistance will be at $2.05.

Technical indications, on the other hand, are quite neutral. The RSI is at 50, and the MACD is barely below 0 on the chart. Furthermore, even if it has not yet made a bearish cross, the Stochastic oscillator is going downwards.

AUDIO has broken down from a rising support line and is currently validating it as resistance on the two-hour chart.

The token must regain this line for the short-term trend to be considered bullish.

Summary

  • AUDIO has reclaimed the $0.87 support area.
  • It has broken down from an ascending support line.

DeFine, a socially conscious nonfungible token platform has raised $5 million in strategic funding as part of a larger drive to bring more businesses into the NFT space.

Huobi Ventures, Abyss, an eSports entertainment firm, and PearlAbyss, a global game developer, lead the round, the company revealed Tuesday. Draper Dragon, NGC Ventures, and SevenX Ventures were among the Asian blockchain funds that attended.

DeFine’s worldwide operations lead, Myoung Hoon Kang, said, “It is my joy to have these significant gaming and entertainment organizations in Asia as key investors. Through strategic investment and collaboration, we will be able to establish new market potential in a variety of industries jointly.”

Investors will receive direct support from DeFine in connecting to the NFT market as part of their strategic investment. The company’s ambition is to build Asia’s largest NFT ecosystem. One of its key goals is to introduce NFTs to the general public, starting with the gaming and entertainment industries.

DeFine bills itself as a social NFT platform for artists, musicians, gamers, influencers, and athletes. Users of the platform have NFT-based social profiles that showcase their accomplishments and contributions to the network.

According to DappRadar data, the sale of NFTs increased by $2.5 billion in the first half of 2021. Gaming and entertainment are two of the most common NFT applications. This trend has been noticed by venture capitalists, who have spent millions of dollars into NFT-focused firms this year alone.

NFT Marketplace Based on Tron APENFT Burns $2.52 Million in NFT: Details

On Tron, the largest token burn incident in the history of the digital collectibles market occurred.

Published

on

On the Tron (TRX) blockchain, APENFT is a pioneering ecosystem for non-fungible tokens. It recently revealed the details of a large token burn event.

NFT Tokens Worth $2.52 Million Were Destroyed

On July 16, 2021, 1.03 trillion of APENFT’s core native NFT assets were destroyed, according to an official notice made on social media by the APENFT team.

This huge quantity was equivalent to $2,520,000 at the moment of the token burn. As a result, this is the most significant increase in scarcity since the APENFT marketplace was launched.

The tokens were sent to T9yD14Nj9j7xAB4dbGeiX9h8unkKLxmGkn, an all-zero Tron (TRX) account, where they were destroyed for good. Therefore, this large batch of tokens has been removed from the NFT circulating supply.

The vast figure is the same as the price of Andy Warhol’s Three Self-Portraits, which APENFT recently purchased on the newly created Binance NFT marketplace.

APENFT Collaborates With Well-known Art Markets

Because NFT is both a governance and a utility token in the APENFT ecosystem, token burn events are exclusively decided by the NFT holders.

On July 7, a community referendum was held, and the proposal was approved on July 10.

Christie’s and Sotheby’s, two famed auction houses, have already joined with APENFT, the first-ever NFT marketplace on Tron. In addition, it has formed a partnership with Beeple and Nifty Gateway, two digital collectibles legends.
