Crypto.com NFT in the Spotlight

Through her latest NFT collection ‘Rites of Passage’, she invites you to look inside yourselves and dare to know more about life itself. Her creation will take you on a journey to enter into these ‘magical realms’ for the first time – then a rite of passage begins.
  • Is it really a food NFT if you can’t eat it? ‘Petroni’s Pizza Party’ is an edible NFT collection and the first of its kind, delivering on utility AND deliciousness. The NFT artwork blends claymation and real-life ingredients to recreate Chef Christian Petroni’s infamous Garlic Butter Sicilian Pizza. This collectible piece gets you a real-world slice of his legendary pie and invites you to reap the benefits of being part of his Gabagool gang, which includes access to exclusive Petroni’s Pizza events, merch, and airdrops.
  • ‘Genus’ is a project portraying the wide spectrum of gender represented through the flower’s reproductive system. Created by the visual artist Paloma Rincón, this is a series of 10 images that  shows the diversity of a wide variety of specimens through super high-resolution close-ups focusing on their reproductive organs. The subjects are shot interacting with liquids and colored lights using macro photography, revealing a world that the naked eye can’t see. They become big enough that you can recognise the cell structure and the fascinating world hidden inside of them. The resulting images show the beauty of nature from a unique point of view.
