TOKYO – Jul 21, 2021 – Collectible art in the buzzy crypto marketplace ushers in new ways for collectors to be a part of art history. Today, Vanten announces its first feature artist showcase on Aug. 4, 2021, marking its transition from stealth mode for its Tokyo-based NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) marketplace, Scramble, which launched on Jul. 7, 2021.
Scramble’s first public showcase is the NFT set MUGAN from the world-renown Amazing JIRO. The feature auction is a mobile haunted house attraction, sent anywhere in the world for a one-week event that includes an in-person signing by the artist and a limited edition NFT collectors series to all visitors.
Events leading up to the launch include a livestream of Japan expert John Daub experiencing MUGAN and interviewing Amazing Jiro with the award-winning horror director, Pablo Absento, on Jul. 23, at 21:20 am EDT.
Offering future frequent NFT drops, Scramble will expand into a broader marketplace for all art genres and artists, offering curated works and helping create a safe and trusted community for artists and collectors alike.
Scramble is part of a larger initiative by Vanten Media and parent company Vanten K.K. to introduce decentralized communications solutions accessible to organizations and communities regardless of their resources or technical experience.
