Prolific collector Pablo Rodriguez-Fraile has launched a new NFT platform along with cultural strategist Ximena Caminos and NFT artist Andrea Bonaceto. The platform, dubbed Aorist, will be powered by the Algorand blockchain and focused on establishing a new creator economy.
Described as a “next generation cultural institution with a sophisticated marketplace,” Aorist was specifically created for empowering contemporary artists creating at the edge of art and technology. The platform will bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds by cross-pollinating exhibitions, commissions, partnerships, and acting as an incubator. Artists will be able to make use of advanced web3 technology tools to push the limits of their practice, co-create, and innovate.

The platform has not yet officially launched to the public, however, it recently hosted a private NFT sale of artworks by conceptual Andrés Reisinger. All artworks sold out, the highest being priced at $160,000 USD.
Algorand is the world’s first open source, permissionless, pure PoS blockchain protocol. The company also recently partnered up with ClimateTrade to minimize the impact of blockchain technology on the environment. Algorand is a leading force as an eco-friendly technology, and has more than 500 global organizations leveraging its tech.
