According to public data, from 2020 to 2021, NFT art will shine, and the online auction transaction volume of NFT artworks will rise steadily. 2627%. However, most of these deals actually took place abroad.

Luo Qiang said frankly that there are not many domestic NFT art creators, and there are even fewer native NFT artists. "Many artists didn't hear about NFT until we found him. We have held three offline NFT encryption art exhibitions, but they are all foreign artists. We very much welcome the joining of domestic NFT artists."

Cao Yin, executive director of the Digital Renaissance Foundation, believes that in China, NFT art is still in its early stages. There are two main reasons: first, the Chinese art market does not know much about encrypted art; second, compared with the Western NFT market, Chinese NFT artists may have to do more to catch up with their Western counterparts.

Like all new things, the emergence of NFT has also sparked heated discussions among domestic art circles.

Some believe that NFT is "the next chapter in art history"; others believe that NFT is just a round of hype for "technology + capital", and question "is the market paying for art or technology?"

From the perspective of technological innovation, NFT is stored with blockchain technology, which can effectively solve many problems such as poor liquidity of artworks in the past, difficulty in real-time realization, opaque prices, long process of depositing and obtaining evidence, etc., allowing artists to have greater creative space and greater The usufruct right of the painting has a positive impact on all markets based on creation and copyright.

However, the actual market outlook may not be so optimistic. The evolution of tools allows everyone to generate their own NFT artwork. Buyers need to find the real "art" among thousands of works, which not only requires a lot of time and energy, but also affects the buyer's taste. Very demanding.

Beeple's case is the exception of exceptions: Before 2020, Beeple had barely sold a single work. In fact, the success of "Every Day: The First 5,000 Days" is also directly related to Christie's crazy marketing before the filming started.

Some people in the industry are even worried that there will be such a phenomenon: most artists will have no food to eat. After NFT democratizes artworks, the public does not have the support of an aesthetic and academic system. Under 10% of the top artists, 90% of the artists will be strongly impacted. How to ensure their own value in the face of technology is a question that most artists need to think about.

In addition, it is still unclear how to price NFT artworks. NFT has broken the sales model of traditional art for hundreds of years. In the traditional art circle, the standard development path of a painter is to sign a contract with a gallery, hold exhibitions in the gallery, sell works, hold exhibitions in museums, and enter auction houses. But on the NFT art platform, an emerging art market has been created, a market that is easy to buy, sell, display, and connect to the world.

There is a view that NFT represents the "democratization" of the art market, linking artists directly with collectors, effectively cutting off galleries and other traditional regulators. There is also a view that the result of the combination of NFT technology and art is that the financial attributes of encrypted art today are so strong that it crushes its artistry. In the NFT art trading market, people don't see art, just the transaction itself.

"The biggest challenge in the domestic NFT art market at this stage is how to let more people know about NFT art. Compared with foreign countries, there is still very little awareness of NFT art in China, and more people need to be aware of the creation model and nature of NFT art. Value." Li Shaoqing, the initiator of the 798NFT Hundred Days Tea Party and Dayu Cultural and Creative Industry Investment Co., Ltd., told Lianxin.

Li Shaoqing believes that from the perspective of the overseas development trend of NFT art, there is an ecological obstacle in the development of the domestic NFT art market. To form a completed closed loop, first of all, there must be a large number of creators and good NFT artworks; secondly, there must be trading platforms and trading markets in order to effectively promote the development of the industry and change the market state; thirdly, there must be good The guarantee mechanism and evaluation system "convince more people that this market can really explode, and it is still in the process of construction."
