HANHART CXD: THE WORLD'S FIRST HYBRID NFT
On December 2, 2021, history will be made at the renowned auction house Van Ham in Cologne: the world’s first hybrid NFT will be auctioned off. In addition to rights to designs, sketches and views of the watch, which are digitally deposited on the Ethereum blockchain, the buyer also buys the right to have the newly designed model manufactured as a unique piece. The Hanhart CXD embodies the infinite expanses of cyberspace and visualizes a development that constantly challenges the limits of what is possible and conceivable: the blockchain.
CXD: THE INFINITE WORLD OF CYBERSPACE
The basis for the development of CXD was the virtual reality of cyberspace and the new possibilities of the blockchain. The name CXD is the letter sequence that comes closest to the symbol of infinity, the lying 8. The CXD prepares the way to the metaverse, to the virtual dimension of life and art. It can be exhibited as a three-dimensional object, and with the NFT an associated 3D exhibition space is supplied on request. This can also be customized according to the buyer’s wishes and is then available to the buyer for incorporation into his website or for offline presentation on screen. The service provider for tokenization and presentation is Time To Token IT GmbH (www.time-to-token.com).
60 STONES: THE BLOCKCHAIN
The design of the watch is unique and based on a visualization of the blockchain. Spirally and individually set and hand-cut stones in block form reflect the eternity claim of the blockchain, as also securitized in the hybrid NFT. NFT, non fungible token, are exclusive ownership rights that are stored on the blockchain in a tamper-proof manner. For the Hanhart CXD, a contract is created on the Ethereum blockchain that is and remains immutable.
CREATE A UNIQUE WATCH WITH HANHART
With the exclusive and tamper-proof NFT for the ownership rights to the digital watch, a second NFT is supplied that certifies the unique, exclusive right to have the CXD manufactured as a one-off. The highest level of craftsmanship is combined here with materials that can be determined by the buyer. From glass stones and sapphires to rare, colorful diamonds set in a titanium or platinum case, anything is possible, because the watch will only exist once. The option to manufacture the watch expires as soon as the right is exercised – and likewise if it is not exercised by December 31, 2022.
