About the NFT Factory

Installed in the heart of the Beaubourg district at 137 rue Saint-Martin, facing the renowned Centre Pompidou Museum, the NFT Factory opened its doors in October 2022 in the presence of the Minister Delegate for Digital Transition and Telecommunications, Jean-Noël Barrot. The NFT Factory is a unique space to discover NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), network, and build projects in Web3 for entrepreneurs, artists, corporates, investors, and the public. Spread across three floors and 400 square meters, the NFT Factory aims to help structure the NFT industry and bring together key players in NFTs, not only in art but also in gaming, luxury, finance, and the metaverse.

The NFT Factory was created by a collective of 128 tech and crypto leaders, artists, investors, and executives from companies including Allianz Accelerator, Arianee, Blackpool, LaCollection, Dogami, Ethereum France, Galeries Lafayette Group, Ledger, Museum of Crypto Art (MOCA), NFT Morning Podcast, RTFKT, The Sandbox, and Sorare. Benoît Couty, one of the co-founders of the venue, previously created MOCA and is considered one of the largest collectors in France.

The digital screen exhibition at the gallery offers a unique advantage — the flexibility to change the collection every week on both the first and second floors. The second floor not only provides a dedicated space for showcasing artworks but also serves as a communal area for engaging in discussions on art, regulations, technology, entrepreneurship, and crypto, and incubating Web3 startups in the future.

First Guests at the “Advent Calendar” Show

Fantastic event with legendary goodies at their X-mass market.” AI Collector embarked on their collecting journey 1.2 years ago, accumulating hundreds of AI artworks on Tezos and approximately 100 on ETH in 2023 alone. Remarkably, over 99% of the collector’s extensive portfolio is dedicated to AI art, with the Advent Calendar being a valuable addition.

“The Advent Calendar was re-invented by NFT Factory, 0 calories, only great art. Fantastic event with legendary goodies at their X-mass market,” admits the anonymous collector who goes under AI Collection.

The first edition of Anna Dart’s Advent Calendar AI artwork titled “Code Rebirth” curated by Artpoint, was secured by AI Collection before even visiting the gallery through the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), where the NFT community is extremely active. “I think such exciting events like the “Advent Calendar” can bring the public closer to the AI and NFT worlds beyond the X bubble,” says Dart.
