entry ofVhils in the world of NFT
Companies such as Verisart facilitated the entry of artists, such asVhils, in the NFT space. They helped creators use blockchain technology, certify and sell their work. NFTs have become a way for artists to express themselves without censorship, in a free and open access network where they can share their creativity and prove ownership over it. Vhils revealed that NFTs give artists the possibility of continuing to earn throughout their lives, given the existence of NFT transactions from one collector to another, which guarantees a return to artists. Something that doesn't happen, at the moment, in the majority of sales in the secondary art commercialization market. In these cases, the artist never earns anything again, however with NFT, royalties are always paid automatically, in a transparent and automated way, ensuring that artists are always rewarded for each resale that is made of their works. Although the technology of NFTs is still very new, the fact that more and more notable national and international contemporary artists are entering this space, suggests that applications of blockchain technology in art will continue to grow.
