STOCKHOLM – March 17, 2022

Technicorum Holdings, a global investment and compliance company headquartered in Singapore, specialising in digital assets like blockchain-based products, and Tradera, the leading circular economy marketplace in Sweden with over 3 million members and 6 million weekly visits, started the auction of NFTs created by one of Sweden’s most prominent artists Ernst Billgren.

The auction will be open until March 27th, 2022, but it has already attracted significant interest from the art and business community. The first NFT received over 150 bids in less than 10 hours after the opening of the auction on March 15th, 2022. Bidding offers can be submitted directly on Tradera’s auction website.

The auction includes a digital art piece, a physical painting, and a text about art written by Ernst Billgren. The NFT series is curated by Jan Åman and Daniel Daboczy, in a series of twelve works of art called the “Twelve Gates,” with the first artwork being called “EGO”. Ernst Billgren’s physical oil painting “EGO” is extended into a digital world through NFTs. The painting is also showcased at Taverna Brillo in Stockholm.

All artworks have a unique digital smart contract deployed by Technicorum. The digital collectible is programmed on open-source blockchain software with a unique digital signature that makes it impossible for it to be exchanged interchangeably. The full ownership of the artwork and transaction will be recorded on the blockchain network and made transparent to the public.
