The Historical and OG NFT Collection: Everything about Curio Cards NFT

Curio Card NFT is the original art NFT on Ethereum. It’s still going strong today. Since May 2017, 7 artists joined forces to create the 30-card digital art collection, paving the way for a new generation of artists. The Curio DAO is also being developed by the team.

Curio Cards NFT

The Curio Cards NFT collection is basically an online art show. These 30 cards are referenced in the original ERC-721 Non-Fungible Token Standard, even predating CryptoPunks. They must be wrapped due to their age in order to work on OpenSea. Some OG buyers may have to wrap their NFTs by hand, in addition to the ones that are available on OpenSea. This can be done through their very own Curio Wrapper.

The collection is possible today thanks to the visionary efforts of seven artists who created it many years ago. Each numbered series has unique artwork and a fixed supply of digital prints, ranging in supply from 111 to 2k cards. There are a total of 29.7k cards, with an estimated 4k currently lost or destroyed. The floor price for the collection is currently 0. 29 ETH, with a trading volume of 37.2k ETH. This collection was set up in a way that the 1% artist royalty will go entirely to the original artists.

Last year, Christy’s organized an auction for Curio Cards NFT, where a set of 31 NFTs were sold for 393 ETH. The collection is now being stored in The Arctic World Archive, along with 21 terabytes of GitHub open source code. To put this into perspective, the archive is set up to last 1,000 years, and will hold these collections, along with other important data. If that doesn’t appeal to you, I don’t know what else can. The artists won’t be creating any Curio Cards NFTs anymore, but the team is working on other collaborations. For instance, CurioCards x Metakey Wearable has 10.6k NFTs, while MoonCats x Metakey Wearable has 7.2k NFTs. These are ongoing collaborations between Metakey, MoonCats and Pixel Map. Holders can get 2 of these products, which are Decentraland-ready.

Curio DAO

At this point, the team has gathered various ideas for the DAO, also providing rewards for members that contribute. Curio DAO is a way for them to spread their collective Web3 knowledge across the globe. This isn’t the first NFT project to establish their own DAO. It represents the next frontier in work and community.

The team uses a variety of tools to assist in the establishment Curio DAO. Curio Cards NFT owners have the option to participate in Discord and Twitter Spaces, which will enhance the brainstorming process. Here community members can offer their ideas and help to shape the future. They will then use Coordinape as a reward system for DAO members.
