EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 

 

Art is the wealth of mankind, yet it is often in the hands of a few. To ensure equal access to artworks, we need a better trading system and the innovation of technology. The unprecedented marriage between blockchain and artworks, where NFT technology is a prime representative, is reshaping the art world, making artworks accessible again for all. 

 

Digital art has long been undervalued, in large part because it’s so freely available. To help artists create financial value for their work, NFTs add the crucial ingredient of scarcity. In the foreseeable future, the NFT boom will continue to grow and transform the way how concepts and values are exchanged between blockchain and the real world. 

 

In 2020, the overall trading value of NFT tripled, reaching $250 million. In March 2021 alone, the total sales of NFT surpassed $220 million. It is predicted that in the next decade, 50% of the top 100 artists and artworks in the world will be registered as NFTs. The growing NFT trading market is calling for the founding of The Lipstick Politico.NFT (TLP.NFT). The early world of NFT art fails to stand up as a reliable, inclusive environment to sell digital art. TLP.NFT aims to create a platform for young and established artists to sell artworks that represent the vision and mission of TLP. TLPNFT ‘s objective is to give a global reach to its existing community and other like-minded creatives and collectors from a previously exclusive world of art.

This marketplace represents all and will include collectibles from communities such as South Asia, LGBTQ, Minorities & Women.
