DADA’s Invisible Economy
DADA is the only online community where artists from all over the world speak to each other through digital drawings, creating collaborative visual conversations. At over 130,000 drawings, DADA holds the largest collection of art ready to be tokenized as NFTs.
DADA is the only online community where people from all over the world speak to each other through drawings, creating collaborative art. Artists in different countries create spontaneous visual conversations, expressing themselves regardless of geography or language. DADA is one of the pioneering projects to prove a use case for digital art and blockchain. It launched its first collection of NFTs Creeps & Weirdos in October 2017.
With over 130K drawings made on its platform, DADA holds the biggest collection of artworks ready to be traded as Non-Fungible Tokens.
DADA is creating the Invisible Economy, a new economic paradigm for artists based on intrinsic incentives and motivations, in which art-making is decoupled from transactions, allowing artists to create, collaborate, and experiment freely while they receive a passive income for their contribution to the community.
DADA’s art has been shown at the Tate Modern in London, the Ethereal Summit, CADAF, and other virtual and physical galleries.
DADA was founded in 2014 by Beatriz Helena Ramos, Judy Mam and Abraham Milano. Today it is transitioning into a decentralized organization.
