PRESS RELEASE

LONDON, Sept. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —Sm-ART NFT launches, allowing investors to build portfolio of tokenised high value physical artwork and assets

A new NFT platform has launched this week, which is set to revolutionise the sale and accessibility of remarkable, high value and unique assets.   

Sm-ART NFT is the first platform of its kind which allows anyone, including the small investor, to buy, sell and take advantage of part ownership of fine art masterpieces, sculptures and luxury jewellery as well as limited editions and one-of-a-kind items through blockchain ownership using dual blockchain protocols. Assets are fractionalised using the ERC20 protocol. These fractions can then be bought and re-sold on the platform https://sm-artnft.com/.  

Digital representations of the assets are created as NFTs and listed for purchase on the website through blockchain technology and asset tokens proving percentage ownership. Asset tokens can be purchased using one of a range of cryptocurrencies in accordance with the seller’s requirements. All tokens representing asset share are compliant with the Ethereum ERC20 standard.

Danny Sangha, co-founder and CTO of Sm-ART NFT, explains more:

“Owning fine art and luxury jewellery outright is out of many people’s reach, but with Sm-ART NFT, anyone with an interest in art and investments can experience the joy of having ownership in a masterpiece. In creating Sm-ART NFT, we wanted to open up an opportunity for people to make beautiful investments — not only in terms of financial appreciation, but also in terms of co-owning something visually stunning.

“There’s also the advantage of making art accessible to all; high value artwork is often owned and kept by private collectors, but we’ll be working with galleries to enable them to continue keeping their pieces on public display for the world to see, while raising funds for further acquisitions.”

Sm-ART NFT’s first assets include photography by interdisciplinary artist Gabriel Dean Roberts, masterpieces from Pasquale Cuppari, who has exhibited alongside the likes of Warhol and De Kooning, and a Patek Philippe Nautilus watch. The full collection of assets which is set to increase substantially over the next few months, can be viewed here: https://sm-artnft.com/#section-assets.

Collective Action Tank for the SDGS ignited at The Digital Economist Roundtable Series on Aug 12 and 13.

I was delighted to have hosted a roundtable on Future of Urbanization: Convergence of Digitalization and Sustainability at the upcoming “Beyond Stakeholder Capitalism” summit (Aug 12 and 13), curated by The Digital Economist, from 11:00-11:55am Eastern on Friday, August 13.

These critical and fast-paced conversations, limited to 25 participants per roundtable, addressed the vital transitions necessary – and already emerging – in our energy, IT, water and other networked industries.

From a report from the Digital Economist released after the event, there were 250 participants, 40 hosts, and 10 roundtables over 2 days as well as dozens of initiatives aimed at going beyond stakeholder value – towards shared value. It was a summit co-curated by the participants just as much as by the hosts, held during the historical week marking the publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s report warning ‘code red for humanity’. Indeed, it could not have been more timely and the initiatives aimed at building a sustainable, inclusive and equitable future, more critical than ever.

At the summit I was joined by guests representing:

WEF, CSIS, Accenture, Microsoft, United Nations Technology Bank for LDCs, MIT Media Lab, Gates Foundation, IBM, U.S. Department of Energy, Johnson Controls, UC Berkeley, Yale University, DTCC, Deloitte, Atos, Edelweiss Gallagher, Southern California Edison, etc. This is a gender-balanced roundtable series, ensuring diversity in backgrounds, industries, geographies and identities.

Participants’ organizations (to name a few, our private list is much longer): EY, AWS, Bloomberg, United Nations Development Programme, MIT, BNY Mellon, IBM, CitiBank, HP, Singularity University, University of Copenhagen, Women in Sustainable Innovation, etc.

The co-hosts for my roundtable included: Alvin Ng (Johnson Controls), Reshma Singh, LEED AP, PMP (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) and Sreekanth Venkataraman (The Digital Economist & SIA Solutions)

The Digital Economist, of which I am a council member, is an advisory firm and a global impact ecosystem focused on building insights, products, services and programs towards positive human and planetary outcomes.

A Legacy of Love

We are the change we are looking for! Beautifully and powerfully said by the nations youngest ever Nobel laureate poet, Amanda Gorman:

“May Love be our Legacy, and Change be every child’s birthright.”

YES, Amanda!! What a day of happy energy that the nation and the world really needed to feel together. A ripple of light.

And, I believe that by continuing to listen to and partner with all young people we CAN create this birthright for them.

All they need is true focus and support, in the education system and all sectors, to help them be empowered and confident to share their ideas, voices, dreams, love and change mindset with the world. We all need to show up with our gifts – and if we are supported to do so – We’ll all be thriving together.

Thus, I’ll be blogging this year more about three main areas:

  1. Youth innovation and entreprenuership for Social Change
  2. The future of Art and empowering artists in the new digital economy
  3. The future of Money and empowering individuals, families, and companies, across sectors, generations and asset classes to achieve their financial dreams and create the impact and profits they wish to have in the world..

Here we go!!
