"We should engage with the meta worlds that are created via new technologies. Beyond the simple possibility of creating scarcity for digital assets, blockchain and NFTs offer perspectives that could renew the functioning of the art world and society as a whole, via the mechanisms of the web that we call 3.0 : digital certificates of authenticity, artistic co-productions affiliated with smart contracts, decentralized decision-making systems, use of NFTs as an artistic medium... The question is therefore not whether blockchain will transform the art world, but how we want it to do so."
