Oneof Launches Bowie NFT

Green Web3 platform OneOf has announced a new collection with David Bowie as part of their partnership with Globe Entertainment and Media (Globe), custodians of the world’s most famous archives including Globe Photo Agency, Movie Star News and the Frank Worth Archive. The two companies are bringing the iconic photograph of rock legend David Bowie performing on his Ziggy Stardust tour in Santa Monica in 1972 to Web3 on the 50-year anniversary of the concert. 

The Legends of Rock: David Bowie—Stardust in Santa Monica collection will feature 130 limited prints of a photograph of David Bowie, taken by photographer Jeffrey Mayer during Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust Tour stop at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 20, 1972—the day David Bowie would change music forever. It was captured during a rare moment, when David Bowie played harmonica on “Jean Genie.” 

Each print is numbered and signed by Mayer, and will come with a secure Digital Certificate of Authenticity inspired by Chris Vranian, America’s foremost Rock and Roll Photography curator. This NFCOA (Non-Fungible Certificate of Authenticity) confirms ownership of the limited-edition signed Jeffrey Mayer print on the blockchain and will come with an incredible utility for fans - three randomly selected collectors will also receive a large-format vintage David Bowie slide in an acrylic display frame. A true music collector's dream.

The limited 130 print NFTs will come with a Redemption Token. The Redemption Token serves as a trading token for a physical print of the photograph and its accompanying non-fungible certificate of authenticity (NFCOA). Each Redemption Token NFT edition number is directly tied to the physical print edition number. This redemption token can be used to resell this NFT on the OneOf Marketplace. Collectors can decide to redeem their Redemption Token NFT for a physical print and the NFCOA at any time by logging onto OneOf and going into their vault. Once redeemed, US-based collectors will be mailed the limited-edition fine art physical print of David Bowie with the same Redemption Token NFT edition number. The NFT holder will also be airdropped the NFCOA for the physical print, replacing the Redemption Token NFT in their OneOf account. www.oneof.com
