Iconic Moments

Iconic is the first NFT Strategic Partner and Marketplace for the 450,000 cultural institutions globally.

At Iconic Moments, our mission is to help create a sustainable model for the preservation of history and for the cultural industry.

We’re different from every other NFT marketplace. Launching early 2022, in addition to the customary NFT visual and pricing details, Iconic Moments is all about YOUR STORY.

We tell the story behind the NFT and what makes it historic, meaningful and iconic. We also tell the story about your institution- your mission, what you stand for.  Finally, we tell the story about where the resulting funds will go so that the buyer understands how the purchase will make a difference and create impact.

We work with you as your strategic partner, helping you navigate this cutting edge NFT territory, to help you raise funds from untapped resources and engage stakeholders in a new way. Our process acknowledges your limited staff time. On average we’ll only need 8 hours of a single employee’s time from initial meeting to the NFTs launch.

We know the impact that COVID-19 has had on the cultural heritage industry. By the end of 2020, the prediction was that 33% of the world’s cultural institutions would close permanently.

In November of 2020, our team of technologists, museum directors, curators, artists, designers, storytellers, and provocateurs began to explore what a new model for the cultural heritage industry might look like.

How could we make cultural institutions less dependent on the in-person visitor experience? How could we make cultural institutions less reliant on galas and once-a-year fundraising events, while helping them engage the stakeholders in cutting edge new ways?

The permanence of the blockchain and its ability to decentralize knowledge perfectly aligned with our industry’s dedication to preservation. The idea of applying the world’s newest emerging technology to one of the world’s oldest industries fascinated us. The capability for museums to bring their exhibits to life through NFTs and to drive revenue, both in the short term and the long, inspired us. The potential environmental impact concerned us and guided us in our development.

Our team has taken the time to research, debate, and explore all the possibilities and pitfalls of NFTs in the cultural heritage space. We’re thrilled to be launching Iconic Moments and excited to hear. We look forward to discussing how our strategic NFT program and marketplace, dedicated entirely to cultural institutions, can help you realize the engagement and funding benefits of this new technology.
