Aesthetes Choose to Build on The XRP Ledger
This week on Developer Reflections, we are excited to present Aesthetes, an organization aiming to unite the realms of fine art and blockchain by producing Phygital NFTs, a type of NFT based on both digital and physical artwork. Aesthetes is a marketplace for people to find, acquire and sell phygital NFTs from fine art with the purpose of democratizing access to the art industry and tearing down any existing barriers.
Within the initial month after its launch, the project was able to attract thousands of users and has kept expanding since then.
Why Aesthetes choose the XRP Ledger?
Aesthetes opted to construct on the XRP Ledger for a number of reasons. Most notably, it is one of the most efficient blockchains available, cutting down on minting and transaction costs associated with NFTs. In addition, its sustainability features are superior to many other blockchains – low energy consumption and reduced carbon footprint. Lastly, they appreciate being part of the XRP Ledger community which has become one of the most advanced and curated ecosystems within the blockchain world. Aesthetes’ builders take great pride in being part of a second family.
