ABOUT

What is FIRST EDITION?

First Edition curates blockchain-based digital art, acquiring the supremely-rare, limited-edition work directly from creators. While a work of digital art has no “original”, we prefer to get as close as we can to it by acquiring rare, unique, or early editions.

Follow First Edition on Twitter or Instagram.

WHAT IS Blockchain-based art?

Digital art on the blockchain (also, “nonfungible tokens” or “NFTs”) are digital works turned into collectible, ownable, limited-edition digital assets using “tokenization”, a process enabled by blockchain technology. These works are available for sale on any Ethereum-based marketplace that supports ERC-721, the technical standard for such tokens.

How do i ACQUIRE A WORK?

You will need to purchase the work using a credit card or cryptocurrency on a decentralized marketplace such as OpenSea. The easiest way to do this is using Editional. Navigate to a detail page for a work and click ACQUIRE using Editional or another Web3 browser.

How do i GET A WORK ON FIRST EDITION?

Post your work on Editional and get it noticed. First Edition’s acceptance criteria is “exceptional use of the digital medium”. We think digital art nonfungibles will be valued, in part, as Schelling points; this suggests a strategy: post the assets that you believe others will pay more for, relative to other such assets.
