The sale of the collection was not a record for Cardano, but it is one of the most prominent releases in recent times. It is both high-profile due to its price and the unique story behind its creation.
Art, not NFT
First, it’s important to mention that none of the images in this collection were drawn, generated or molded out of clay. These photos were taken by Matias at the American Cemetery in Normandy where the Second World War participants were buried.
According to the photographer, the dream of a collector inspired him to visit Normandy. However, the pandemic meant that he could not travel to that area. Matias set out on his own to Normandy, taking some very heartbreaking photos in what he called his “comfort isolation” style. The real-life NFT collection “A Memory of Light”, which he found on Cardano, was then born.
Each NFT item is accompanied with a unique print from a real photo, signed by Matias. It is important that you clarify that the photographer retains all copyright to the images.
Funny enough, the Cardano NFT Collection’s release comes just a day after Charles Hoskinson, founder of the blockchain project, publicly rejected it.
