How does Kalen Iwamoto’s Literature Drop NFT work?

The beginning of 2023 brought a lot of innovations to the NFT market. The most recent example comes from Caleen Iwamoto, a digital poet and founder of the women-led TheVERSEverse NFT gallery. This time around, the artist has created 7 NFTs featuring digital pieces of literature titled “The Coining Poetry.”

For each poem, the author used custom titles and a cryptic cipher language. Of course, the tokenization associated with ETH poses some limitations; For example, users can only use the letters “a” through “f” and two numbers: 0 and 1.

Once you purchase an NFT poem, you will receive a unique key to a private digital wallet. Inside the wallet, you will find 1,000 cryptocurrencies – ERC-20 tokens created just for this pool.

In addition, cardholders will receive a physical plastic wallet that includes the entire encrypted poem. These NFT related items also contain Kalen Iwamoto’s font and signature.

All in all, this is undoubtedly a one-of-a-kind drop that may carve out the NFT hair niche. Here’s what the collectibles look like:

What is laCollection?

Founded in 2021, laCollection is a leading NFT art gallery aiming to connect artists and institutions with passionate collectors. The list of platform partners includes Sorare, Level-Up, and ArtNova to name a few.

So far, laCollection has brought many traditional artifacts into the Web3 world as well. For example, the company has teamed up with Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts to drop off rare 19th-century French paintings as NFTs. Given the promising growth of the NFT market this year, literary NFTs such as Kalen Iwamoto’s cryptic poems may bring prestige to a new dimension.
