The first exclusive NFT marketplace in the Netherlands. Removing barriers for Web2 -> Web3.
First things first,
Exactly one year ago, Wouter Kloosterman, Lemar Bachtiar, and Tat Luat Nguyen started Authic.io: an exclusively curated platform for the sale of NFTs, focusing on the high-end of digital art. "We only present curated art.”
That is, curators, assess our digital artworks on various criteria. For example, they look at the track record of the artists. Has the artist been in the industry for a long time?
