What is the PHILOGRAPHY NFT PROJECT?
PHILOGRAPHY NFT PROJECT is the world’s first repository and auction platform for tokenized NFT autographs. The PHILOGRAPHY team officially collaborates with global celebrities from film, culture, sports, politics, and business and tokenizes their original autographs. All autographs are confirmed (verified) by the celebrities.
PHILOGRAPHY team independently organizes autograph sessions and interviews with celebrities. Subsequently, the team converts autographs into NFT tokens – collectible NFT autographs of the celebrities. PHILOGRAPHY.BIZ produces limited editions of celebrity autograph collections and sells them on the world’s NFT marketplaces – OpenSea and Rarible.
The limited number of NFT autographs guarantees an increase in the collection and investment value of the digital asset in the long term. The next step in the development of the PHILOGRAPHY platform is its integration with British and American auction houses.
