RedKite to launch revolutionary NFT marketplace

Avatar

Published

on

Next month sees the launch of RedKite, a new NFT platform aiming to be the bridge that connects collectors of well-established artists to the digital world through creating a new methodology for NFTs and art ownership. 

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have been around for some time now. However, following a few big press stories earlier this year, one being digital artist Beeple selling an NFT for $69 million, it’s only in recent months that we’ve seen some big players in the art world, such as Damien Hirst and Sotheby’s auction house, join in the NFT party.

Currently, most websites presenting NFTs in the form of visual artworks allow artists to upload their own digital files, GIFs, photos or animations and present them for sale for users to buy with cryptocurrency.  However, with so many artists creating digital artwork, the whole space has become cluttered, and even some of the leading NFT websites such as Nifty Gateway still have thousands of works in their marketplace, many by predominantly unknown artists.

This is where RedKite comes in to cut the noise. With a founding team built heavily of contemporary art professionals – one being renowned street artist and pioneer in the exploration of graffiti letter forms Ben Eine – the RedKite platform is fully curated, with a focus on artists who already have a big following and are widely collected in the physical art world. The team’s deep ties to current practicing artists and their ability to bring in valuable contemporary names creates a one stop shop for premium digital art collecting.

“In 2001, [American art dealer and curator] Jeffrey Deitch said the Street Art Movement was the biggest art movement in the world. I agreed with him at the time.  We’re now in 2021 and although it blows my mind, I believe digital art is the future. RedKite’s set up, where artists get to create physical pieces that relate to the digital works, makes more sense to me.” Ben Eine, street artist

With all of the artwork on the platform being carefully selected by RedKite’s in-house curatorial team, who between them have many years experience in running galleries, publishing limited editioned art and shaping artists’ careers, a close partnership that helps facilitate this lies with Ourtypes, an international art studio managing some of the most leading street artists and graffiti writers in the world. 

Ourtypes’ impressive projects include a mural on the London Eye and the production of one of the largest paintings ever created in partnership with Zippo. The cumulative following of Ourtypes and its artists currently sits at around 3 million and the volume of interest in the group is expected to significantly grow as their artists gain further exposure and continue to create ground-breaking work.

As an active studio that’s constantly working on new projects and embracing new technology, Ourtypes like the concept of the NFT space, and many of their artists, including Eine, whose work was once gifted to President Obama by UK Prime Minister David Cameron, have been dipping their toes in the digital medium for some time, but it wasn’t until they spoke to RedKite that it the idea resonated.

Juan Topping of Ourtypes said: “We’d been approached by a lot of NFT spaces in the past, with everyone wanting to work with our artists, however, it wasn’t until we heard about RedKite’s idea of the artists producing physical works to create asset backed NFTs that it all seemed to make sense”.

Cementing this new relationship, Eine and other artists from the Ourtypes family are likely to be the first in line for RedKite’s debut NFT drops, paving the way for other leading artists to jump on board.

On top of all this RedKite is looking to utilise some of the best tech in the space as well as bringing innovative solutions to the table. They will also be introducing some of the first asset-backed NFTs into the space. This means that each NFT bought and sold is associated with an original piece of work, such as a painting, that physically exists and will be publicly exhibited. By doing this, not only does a collector get to own part of a piece of art that exists in the real world, but it also means the value of the associated NFTs will not fall below a certain point. This is, due to them representing a fraction of a physical artwork that will hold its value or, more likely, increase in value as time goes on.

Environmental issues are often addressed when talking about NFTs and RedKite takes this seriously, offering carbon-neutral transactions. They aim to make this possible by offsetting their energy usage that is used on the Layer 2 of the Ethereum Network that they run on.

With this new platform, Redkite is looking to continue the development of the growing contemporary art market by bringing art collecting into the current digital climate.

Powered by blockchain technology to break down ownership of high-value pieces, their aim is to ultimately increase accessibility and utility for all.

Alongside the platform, RedKite will also be launching the KITE token, with its main utility deriving from running a Collectors Club. Avid investors can sign up to find out more information about how a public sale will be run via the RedKite website, Twitter and Telegram. Those that want premium NFTs can expect first drops to happen in December, with visual content appearing via instagram.

RedKite will be running a competition in order to excite and strengthen the community. Prices will include an original work of art by Ben Eine, five prints provided by Ourtypes, NFTs and Token Prizes. In order to find out more head over to the RedKite website and subscribe.

Press Release

Y2B introduce protocol to allow users hedge, leverage, speculate and trade the different components of pegged assets

Avatar

Published

on

Y2B Finance is a suite of structured products designed for exotic peg derivatives, that will allow market participants the ability to robustly hedge or speculate on the risk of a particular pegged asset (or basket of pegged assets), deviating from their ‘fair implied market value’.

Introducing Y2B Finance

Y2B Finance is the hard fork from Y2K Finance, they follow the exact same protocol from what Y2K team did. It is a suite of products designed for exotic peg derivatives that will allow participants to hedge or speculate on the risk of a particular pegged asset (or basket of pegged assets), deviating from their ‘fair implied market value’.

The protocol brings three main products to the table:

Typhoon

This flagship Y2B structured product leverages a variant of the ERC-1155 standard for the creation of fully-collateralized insurance vaults. Users can use these vaults to hedge, speculate and underwrite the volatility risk associated with various pegged assets. Token holders are rewarded from trading fees derived from this marketplace.

Users can hedge against these assets de-pegging by depositing ETH collateral into the Hedge vault and receiving Y2B tokens (Vault Tokens) in return.

Initially, users can hedge against USDT, USDC, BUSD and DAI de-pegging with weekly and monthly time periods. More assets will be supported in the future.

Volcano

Volcano is a Collateralized Debt Obligation (CDO) powered lending market for pegged assets with MEV-proof liquidations. Volcano is the secondary market place that builds on top of Typhoon tokenized vaults. Since collateral is locked up for the duration of the vault cycle, this secondary market allows users to enter and exit positions in real time via its order book.

Wildlife

Wildlife is an on-chain RFQ orderbook where users can trade Y2B risk tokens amongst themselves, both unlocking ample liquidity and allowing for rapid repricing of semi-fungible tokens.

In other words, Y2B Finance offers a fully transparent, on-chain insurance solution for users, DAOs, and more looking to hedge against their pegged asset positions. Y2B also further promotes decentralization by making these markets accessible for all participants and by providing instant and guaranteed payouts via Chainlink oracles.

Y2B brings a new set of tools to DeFi that will allow users to better manage their stablecoin risk. 

To keep up with Y2B follow them on Twitter.
