BullishArt update

There is a big change coming to BullishArt BullishArt is going to be a Creator and a Curator. We won’t mint other artists artworks anymore. We will curate other artists NFTs, but for the minting process it is going to be Art created 100% by our team.

Curating is going to be a free service and a pro-service paid in Bart. Artists will be welcomed to register their profile on our site to be promoted. They mint their NFTs we promote them. We will cover all NFT art in the space without any borders. Meanwhile we will create our own art, now that we have a solid team of artists & curators, we just create our own artworks. This especially is important to clarify what is our creation and what is other artists creations. Again we are going to promote actively other artists NFTs, but those will be minted by them

Bart utility genesis

We have finally listened to your requests, collectors and artists and we are moving forward providing art curation services through Bart.

This transaction can be considered the genesis of Bart as payment for art curation: https://tzkt.io/ooXbsL8bTD3P7jpKWmVVm5i8WBCwZegxDLoj8cDCkNdzroA9VnB

This is the first payment by a collector for curating his piece with the support of BullishArt curators.

We are excited to improve the use cases of Bart, since we firmly believe from the beginning, a token should be a clear use case before considering promoting it.

Fibonacci and BullsArt

These days it is not uncommon to read about simulation talks regarding our reality. There are so many incredible ideas to listen to, and many of them have some level of connection to probability and math.

However without going into simulation theories, everyone has gotten some hints during math class and while mathematics is not for everyone, it often opens the door to new insights, like in the magnificent case of the Fibonacci sequence. 

This simple yet brilliant sequence is able to catch the interest and imagination of almost anyone. Its ramification goes beyond the math world and gives us a glimpse of nature speaking a language we can understand in terms of math and beauty.

When people begin to find this pattern in nature and the world around them, their imagination runs wild.

Since BullsArt is a series about art through history, we could not miss the chance to represent the Fibonacci throughout the series; we like to think of it as a bridge between nature and the artists.

In BullsArt the rarity level follows the Fibonacci sequence. There are other hidden traits too, backgrounds, nose rings, different colors, hidden messages, but the Fibonacci from f1 to f15 is what shapes a big part of the rarity.

We believe BullsArt is the first NFT series to be shaped by Fibonacci sequence.

What is an NFT?

Everything You Need To Know

If you’ve heard the term NFT (Non-fungible tokens) talked about a lot within the last year, you aren’t alone. Some of these digital assets are selling for millions of dollars, featuring everything from music and art to recipes and even Youtube videos, catching the attention of news outlets around the world.

So, what exactly is an NFT, and how can you use them to your advantage as an artist or a buyer? In this article, we’ll explain everything you need to know about NFTs, including how they work, what they are, and how you can get involved with the process.

What Is An NFT?

An NFT is a digital asset that represents an item in the real world, such as videos, art, game items, music, sneakers, collectibles, and more. They are sold and purchased online, meaning they can be traded from person to person without the need for a physical transaction. Instead, these transactions rely on using a digital wallet to purchase and sell assets.

NFTs have been around for a while and were initially released in the early 2010s. However, NFTs are becoming more popular as many people prefer digital over physical items. In addition, NFTs offer new possibilities that make them an attractive investment opportunity, such as providing rare objects, collectibles, or limited availability items.

How Does An NFT Work?

NFTs are unique in that they can be owned and traded online, which is different from something like the money you have saved up in your bank account to buy a physical item. They are created using blockchain technology, creating individual tokens with the information of the digital art stored into them, allowing music, art, videos, and more to be stored into the individual token. Once they are created, they can be sold, purchased, or traded just like any other physical item.

NFTs are exceptionally safe because there’s only one digital version of the artwork available through the network, meaning that while copies can be sold, they won’t hold the original information that the initial token holds. This ensures that hackers or scammers can’t illegally download or steal NFTs that you create or purchase.

NFTs offer a unique way for artists to monetize their art instead of having to rely on an online gallery or physical location to sell it. Instead, it allows them to sell their art directly to consumers, increasing the amount of profits retained. Plus, since they’re digital assets, creators can even put a royalties program in place to continue to profit off the re-sale of the digital asset. 

How To Buy NFTs

The first step to buying NFTs is to create a cryptocurrency wallet to purchase and sell your assets. Once you have your own personal wallet, it will generate the address for where you’ll receive your tokens from when they’re purchased or traded. You can also use existing wallets that are already set up on marketplaces, such as Metamask and Temple. 

Once you find an artist who’s created a piece of art or another type of digital asset that interests you, send them the amount through your digital wallet. Make sure to read through all instructions about what to do next to ensure you properly execute the transaction. Be aware that there may be processing fees associated with selling or purchasing an artist tokenized work or exchange fees to accept it through your wallet.

Most frequently, NFTs are released as batches, allowing excited buyers to jump in and purchase exclusive collections before they’re sold out. Popular companies like Taco Bell and the NFL have already started to capitalize on the NFT trend by offering digital cards and GIFs. Even online gaming companies have begun to sell assets like avatars, swords, or upgrades as NFTs.

How Is An NFT Different From Cryptocurrency?

The only similarity between the two is that NFTs are built using the same type of platform that cryptocurrency uses. While cryptocurrencies have equal value and can be exchanged or traded for each other, such as one Dogecoin will have the same value as another Dogecoin, NFTs don’t follow the same type of rules.

NFTs will never be equal to one another because they have their own information stored and hold different values. This means that they are not worth the same on the NFT marketplace and can’t be traded as equals.

What Is Driving The NFT Market?

There is no one clear answer on what’s driving the market, but some of these reasons include:

  • Easy To Create: Instead of having to read through endless how-to tutorials on how to turn your artwork into NFT, well-known companies like BullishArt takes care of the entire process for you. This helps increase the ease of creation and eliminates issues that artists would typically run into during the NFT creation process. 
  • Faster Payments: Since everything is processed through cryptocurrency wallets, the payment system is a lot faster than using alternative forms of payment like PayPal or ACH payments.
  • Quicker Delivery: Just like faster payments, buyers are able to receive their NFTs instantaneously, allowing them to use the assets they purchased right after they finish the purchasing process.
  • Higher Returns: One significant driving factor is the ability for artists to receive higher returns than they may have been able to through a physical gallery or their own online store. This has been motivating artists to transform their works of art into NFTs.
  • Uniqueness: Many people are interested in NFTs because they do not have to worry about any duplicate items. This means that if you buy a digital asset, like an album or painting, it’s yours and yours only!

Physical Art vs. NFTs

If you’re an artist, you might be wondering what the difference is between NFTs and physical art. Physical art will be physically sold to buyers, requiring them to come in person or receive your work through shipping. NFTs are digital works of art and do not require any shipping or physical interaction with the buyer.

Some artists choose to produce both physical artworks and turn them into NFTs so as to diversify their income streams and expose their artwork to a more extensive network. Plus, artists have been able to sell their NFTs at higher values than they would be able to if they were just in a traditional gallery or advertised through an online store.

What Benefits Does An Artist Get From Minting Their Own Tokens?

One of the benefits to creating your own tokenized work is that you get complete control over everything about it from start to finish, including how much they cost when they’re released and how they’re sold.

An artist typically has two ways of monetizing their digital assets: selling them outright or charging an access fee that allows others to view or use the work digitally without needing ownership rights to do so. Both help to increase the amount of profit an artist makes while keeping the integrity of the work intact.

How Can BullishArt Help With The Process Of Minting An NFT?

If you’re interested in turning your physical artwork into NFTs, then BullishArt is the perfect solution for you. To get started, an artist needs to submit their work to the platform. If the artwork is accepted by our curators, then your artwork will be turned into an NFT.

Not only does BullishArt handle the entire process of minting the artwork, but they promote it to ensure that potential buyers are exposed to it. Additionally, BullishArt operates across all the NFT marketplaces in Tezos, Ethereum, Klaytn, Bitcoin, ensuring that you find the perfect platform to host your artwork to show buyers around the world.

With this increase in viewership, there has been an increased interest from investors who want access to these works of art on global marketplaces. This generates new opportunities for artists not only by providing them with higher returns but also by ensuring their art is seen by a bigger audience.

The Future Of NFTs

Although the market is still new, it’s quickly growing into a billion-dollar industry, allowing both buyers and sellers to profit from NFTs. The future of this technology looks bright, especially with video game companies, sports leagues, and franchises investing in them as well.

NFTs have a lot of potential for growth, especially when you consider how much they differ from physical artwork on display that hangs on your walls or stands in a gallery. It offers some valuable points, such as ensuring there are no duplicate items and increased accessibility due to instant transactions from buyers around the world. Plus, it allows artists to have more control over their artwork and continue to retain profits as the works are re-sold.

As the market continues to grow, digital assets will likely continue to become more popular and widely used in many different ways — from becoming official payments for physical items or collectible items that increase in value over time, the potential is endless.

Kolibri

In the last few months, Tezos has been experiencing a very intense development related to Defi and NFT.

A project that here at BullishArt we have been very interested since the beginning is the stable coin Kolibri.

What is Kolibri?

Kolibri is a Tezos based stable coin built on Collateralized Debt Positions (CDPs).

If you are familiar with DAI on Ethereum, probably you are already familiar with this concept.

The good news is that being built on Tezos, Kolibri is very fast and inexpensive.

Kolibri lets you save a lot

For our NFT marketplace, Kolibri is an excellent choice, in fact on BullishArt we list our artists NFTs in US dollars, offering the option to purchase with PayPal. Since the NFTs are quoted in US dollars, adding Kolibri with the benefits of almost zero fees, we can provide a discount of 10% on the US dollar price.
