Thanks to the combined efforts of four ’90s era West Virginia Wesleyan College classmates and five pioneering West Virginia-based artists, the great State of West Virginia has the distinction of being home to the world’s very first state-themed NFT project!
Titled 1863nft (for obvious reasons!), the project consists of 304 individual digital assets representing 50 pieces of original art.
“We’re all fascinated by the potential of the consumer blockchain to empower individuals,” said co-founder, Rob Raffety. “Verifiable digital assets with real-world utility align the interests of buyers and sellers – audiences and artists – in exciting and unexpected ways.”
