Moderated by

Sixtine Crutchfield, Art Director of WISe.ART entrusted NFT Platform

The 2023 event will focus on current trends in the Art World and the preparation progress for Web03, AI and NFT marketplaces. Industry experts, investors, and entrepreneurs kindly agreed to partake as our special guests to discuss their views on the future during a focused round table moderated by WISe.ART’s Art Director, Sixtine Crutchfield. She says “Clearly, we look at what most call a Crypto Winter as a time to solidify and better foresee how the industry must build its foundations.”

To select the 2023 Excellence Award Winners, the WISe.ART team ran a campaign on its social media platforms and asked the global community to vote for their favorite art piece. After one month, we identified the winners in the following categories: Over People’s Choice, Philanthropy, Digital and physical Art, Photography, Audio and Video.

The Winners are:

The WISe.ART NFT OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2023 recognize, celebrate, showcase, and promote the most outstanding NFT artworks, projects, and concepts and to connect their outstanding creativity and artwork with investors, patrons, and collectors from all over the world.

Furthermore, discussions will also focus on recent NFT trends. Despite the demise of the Crypto Currency market, collectors are spending more, not less, on NFT art, according to the Art Market Report. ‘It can become addictive,’ some admit to author Brian Boucher of ArtNet News for ArtBasel.

Crypto winter (or ice age, whichever it turns out to be) hasn’t cooled collectors’ appetite for digital artworks, according to “A Survey of Global Collecting” in 2022, co-published by Art Basel and UBS, prepared by Dr. Clare McAndrew, Founder of Arts Economics. On the contrary, just in the first half of 2022, high-net-worth collectors spent an average of $46,000 on art-based NFTs, more than all of 2021 ($44,000) and 2020 ($35,000). A robust 17% of their spending was on digital art, including 10% linked to an NFT.
