The Big Five Project – Is building Africa’s first None Fungible Token (NFT) trading platform. The Big Five Project aims to introduce to African artists to the exciting world of digital art as NFTS while at the same time exposing African art to the wider audience.
The Big Five Project aims to bring exclusive art and artifacts from Africa’s prominent artists across the whole industry spectrum from musicians, to dancers, writers, actors, painters and sculptors. Please ensure you follows us through our social media where we will announce artists that will sign to trade their NFTs on our platform.
African art has never taken its fair share of the multi-billion dollar industry. Its a fact that a lot of African art and artefacts were stolen from African countries and is currently being displayed in European museums. The artists who produced the works have never been compensated. Our NFT marketplace build on Binance Smart Chain will ensure that ownership of art or artefacts benefits from the security of blockchain.
The art industry, be it musicians or sculptors have had their livelihood upended with the arrival of Corona Virus. With lockdowns musicians have had no means of income. Other artists who also rely heavily on tourists for income have also seen their sources income disappear due to restrictions in international travel. The Big Five NFT Platform aims to mitigate such losses of income for artists as it offers a platform in which they can mint/digitise and monetise their digital art.
