Gods, at K11 Art Mall. The pop-up store is organized by the exchange’s new division, AAX Trends, which offers curated content and leadership programs on crypto for a global audience and local communities.
The experience, which is the first of a series of NFT-related pop-up stores, will take place at Shop 121, K11 Art Mall, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, from 23 April – 9 May, 2022. It consists of three separate zones – Apes, Pixels, and Gods – that will showcase 45 pieces of NFT artwork. Among the NFTs displayed will be ‘The Crypto Gods’ created by AAX in collaboration with digital artist FrankNitty3000, a private collection from Elite Apes Hong Kong, where 14 apes will be presented, and also many Hong Kong-inspired NFT artworks.
“We are delighted to host our very first NFT pop-up experience in Hong Kong, which has emerged as a strong digital and NFT hub. The pop-up store, which allows us to connect with a much broader community, will offer visitors new perspectives on the convergence of crypto with economic and cultural change. It will also highlight the advantages and benefits that NFTs have to offer across a range of industries, from finance to consumer and luxury goods to real estate,” said Yixiang Chen, the Branding Director at AAX. “This experience comes at a time when we are embracing accelerating change in crypto adoption and it provides a great forum for exchanging ideas on the opportunities that can emerge from NFT and blockchain technology.”
Highlights of the pop-up store include:
- Panel Discussions: In parallel with the two-week pop-up experience, Ben Caselin, Head of Research and Strategy at AAX, will host two panel discussions with leading industry players to explore the NFT status quo, the implication of NFTs, and their impact. AAX will also host another two panel discussions with the NFT exhibitors to share their stories. Stay tuned for more information.
- Limited-edition merchandise: A line of limited-edition merchandise, which drew inspiration from Bored Apes’ NFTs (BAYC#37 & BAYC#4079), will be available at the NFT pop-up store. These exclusive products represent the intrinsic value of the BAYC collection, where creativity was spurred when a narrative was developed around the apes.
