Binance NFT, the NFT marketplace of Binance, the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, has today announced the NFT collection launch of Kharkiv Art Museum, which is one of the oldest and most valuable museum art collections in Ukraine. Today, the museum’s holdings include about 25,000 works of fine art of Ukraine, Western Europe, the Middle and Far East of the 15th–21st centuries.
As part of the launch of the “Art without Borders” NFT collection on Binance NFT, the Kharkiv Art Museum will be auctioning 15 works from its collection. The collection will feature works by Albrecht Dürer, Georg Jacob Johann van Os, Ivan Aivazovsky, Simon de Vlieger and other artists. All funds raised from the auction will be directed to the operational activities of the museum to restore its work, as well as secure more jobs.
The auction will begin on October 13 and last for a week. All NFTs will be divided into three categories:
Gold – includes five art pieces, the starting price is $1,000 BUSD
Silver – includes five art pieces, the starting price is $750 BUSD
Bronze – includes five art pieces, the starting price is $500 BUSD
“Today we are erasing borders and moving into the digital era. With the help of Web3 technologies, the collection of the Kharkiv Art Museum can be exhibited anywhere in the digital world. Masterpieces cared for by the museum will be able to help its development in such a difficult time,” said Honcharov Agency CEO Oleksandr Honcharov.
Helen Hai, Head of Binance NFT, said: “Throughout the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, digital assets have played an important role in providing fast, efficient, and simple help to those in need. Together with the Kharkiv Art Museum, we will present the NFT collection which combines Web3 technology and pieces of art that the museum preserves so carefully. We hope that this project will attract the attention of art connoisseurs and help the museum keep up with the times.”
