seattle’s first nft art museum and gallery
although NFT fuels the emerging economy of digital assets and virtual goods, taking the art world by storm in the last years, there is no institution dedicated to non-fungible tokens till now. this all changes from january 27th, when seattle NFT museum — and the world’s first — opens its doors to the public inviting NFT enthusiasts to immerse into a digital world.
founded by entrepreneurs jennifer wong and peter hamilton, this first-of-its-kind museum was designed to bring together artists, creators, collectors, and the broader blockchain community. the belltown show room put on display a number of artworks ranging from larva labs ‘cryptopunks’ series to blake kathryn and H + creative, amongst many.

the two tech executives jennifer wong and peter hamilton have collaborated with samsung to provide several custom-designed screens that can change the barriers of the work. this way feeds curators and artists flexibility in how to display their artwork. entering the seattle NFT museum (SNFTM), visitors face some of the most exciting NFT digital art displayed on large, high-resolution screens. wandering around, one can find QR codes that send them into various online portals, creating an interaction between the artists and their audience. each artwork is connected to the token’s metadata and the content of the creators’ story.

‘the imagination of NFT artists and creators is thrilling. we wanted to create a space to serve the NFT community while helping put seattle on the map as a hub for NFT and blockchain innovation. we’re not experts, and we’re here to learn as much as anyone. that is why we are counting on the feedback and support of NFT enthusiasts to continue growing the vision,’ said jennifer wong, co-founder seattle NFT museum.
