Amsterdam Blooms: Auctioning this week!
Amsterdam Blooms is an artistic compilation that seamlessly blends tradition and technology in the heart of the historic metropolis of Amsterdam.
The first Inscribing Atlantis collection was showcased in Amsterdam during their first event in October 2023, evoking this city with centuries of history, rich symbolism and a mosaic of cultural diversity.
At the heart of this art initiative is the theme of the 'flower'. Symbolising everything from the beauty of friendship to the vitality of new beginnings, the flower has a meaning deeply rooted in art history. With echoes of the Dutch Golden Age and indelible traces of tulip mania, artists come together to explore and reinterpret this timeless motif. We have brought together 14 artists from around the world to explore the various expressions of the flower and combine them with the innovation of the Ordinal Protocol.
We’re so excited to be hosting this auction series on Gamma! The auctions start on Thursday at 9am EST and run until Friday at 3pm EST.
Check out the entire collection below, and tune into our Twitter Spaces this Wednesday to learn more about the Amsterdam Blooms!

A Sea of Pixels by Eliherf
Pixel art, a cornerstone in video game presentation, spans the eras alongside the rise of three-dimensional graphics. Despite initial perceptions of being a rudimentary aesthetic, pixel art has not only endured, but has undergone a renaissance within modern gaming, art — and NFTs.
In the advent of NFT’s and Ordinals, a sense of nostalgia has woven pixel art into art based and profile picture based collections. Collections like Megapunks, Nodemonkes, Bitcoin Frogs and others have leveraged blockchain technology to tokenize and sell pixel art creations. This not only introduced pixel art to new audiences but also highlighted its cost-effectiveness for on-chain transactions on BTC.
