NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OKX, the world’s second largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume and a leading Web3 technology ecosystem, and the Tribeca Festival today launched the first-ever Tribeca Festival NFT pass for 2023. The NFTs, each an exclusive piece of art doubling as a VIP pass, grant access to select screenings, parties with Tribeca co-founders Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro, and other one-of-a-kind privileges throughout the Tribeca Festival from June 7-18 in New York City.
The Tribeca Festival NFT pass is available exclusively on the OKX NFT marketplace and can be stored in the OKX Wallet. It is an expansion of OKX’s exclusive presenting partnership with the Tribeca Festival, which launched last year. Tribeca partnered with AWA Studios and award-winning comic illustrator Jonathan Bartlett to create the NFT design inspired by landscapes of Lower Manhattan with Tribeca at the heart of NYC’s creative community.
Tribeca Enterprises Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Jane Rosenthal said: “The Tribeca Festival has always been at the forefront of the intersection of technology and creativity, and it’s only fitting that this year’s VIP pass comes in the form of an exclusive NFT.”
OKX Chief Marketing Officer Haider Rafique said: “It’s exciting we’ve partnered with the Tribeca team to introduce a first-of-its kind NFT pass. This allows festival goers to experience Web3 and ways to build on top of this unique technology. We’re particularly looking to inspire artists to create more on Web3 and we’ll keep our eyes out for individuals who will do more with this concept.”
OKX Head of Web3 Global Growth Nate Zou said: “More than ever, creators are now utilizing innovative technology such as NFTs to tell stories and share their artistic vision. This project celebrates the natural synergy between blockchain technology and art while bringing amazing practical utilities to life that only Tribeca Festival can provide.”
