SuperRare Labs co-founder and CEO John Crain explained:
“We are thrilled with the results of the Space Races so far, we’ve seen incredible participation and engagement from our token holders as well as from NFT artists, collectors and enthusiasts from around the world. We value our dedicated SuperRare community who voted in this Space Race. Their voices are helping to build SuperRare into a vibrant ecosystem, where a plurality of voices are heard while new and innovative forms of artistic expression are being minted as NFTs.”
The votation took place for 2 weeks, concluding on March 22 with ten winners out of 30 proposals. More than 28.4 million votes were cast by the SuperRare DAO, with a RARE token engagement of 23%.

A France based collective founded by prominent NFT collectors, advisors and entrepreneurs, New French Touch promotes the emerging French cryptoart scene with a focus on early cryptoart aesthetic and themes.
New French touch will be a combination of a digital and physical place to highlight French digital creation, with a pinch of French spirit, not necessarily limited to French artists. While the monetization of art is unavoidable, New French Touch aims to spotlight the philosophical underpinnings of NFTs, highlighting the aesthetic importance of art created on the blockchain.
With a view to exploring and contextualizing the different movements of NFT, New French Touch aims to position NFTs within greater mainstream culture. New French Touch founders are BnoiitC MoCA, albertine, Arthemort, Jean Michel Pailhlon, G4sP4RD, Lucie-Eleonore.
CryptoArg is an Argentinian art collective whose mission is to find the most unique and unexpected artistic expressions within the cryptoart space. Based in Argentina, the collective is grounded in the collaboration and articulation of regional creative potential.
CryptoArg will be thought of as an editorial exercise that addresses the unprecedented proliferation of images, artistic production and expressive power that the cryptoart circuit fosters, and that in turn explores an artistic framework given in a regional specific context, in which unexpected art forms abound.
CryptoArg will be exclusive mostly to South America, Argentinian artists and special guests, giving local artists the opportunity to provide deeper context of their unique vision.
Founded by three women poets, theVERSEverse is a literary gallery where text is art, poetry is technology, and language has no limits. The theVERSEverse is a curated platform where collectors discover poets, and poets discover the infinite potential of the Metaverse. There is no current dedicated poetry platform within the world of NFTs.
The space aims to lead the way forward by bringing together the most exciting crypto authors and text-based artists with widely-read, critically acclaimed traditional poets who will bring enthusiastic new audiences and collectors into the space.
Its founders believe the poetic encounter is one of the most profound forms of communion between two minds — author and reader.
They also believe new technologies such as blockchain, generative text and artificial imaginations can unlock unprecedented experiences in knowledge-sharing and linguistic experimentation and deepen our human understanding. theVERSEverse is where it comes together.
Founded by collector and curator Gabriel Santos, gblsts is a curated storefront that will actively serve to showcase, promote and sell artworks selected by Santos as a continuation of his personal collection which has a heavy inclination in psychedelic art. With no main theme in terms of media, the goal is to represent unique souls regardless of their background, technique, subject matter, or stylistic vision.
The uniqueness lies within the artist themselves, each exhibition differing from one another based on the artist featured at any given time. Gblsts aims to establish an internship protégé program to mentor and develop the careers of NFT curators of the future.
Founded by Chikai Ohazama, MONOLITH Gallery reimagines a digital gallery that forefronts curation. MONOLITH includes a merchandise store, rankings for upcoming categories, alongside many projects and collaborations with artists.
Founder Chikai Ohazama was one of the co-creators of Google Earth and this past year dove headfirst into NFTs. He took the skills developed building and scaling Google Earth and put them to work. His vision for MONOLITH is to make unseen seen and bring together old and the new.
The Joy of NFTs
The Joy of NFTs will serve as a space to open the conversation between artists, collectors, and members of the NFT community. Developed to be an episodic platform for conversations, The Joy of NFTs has a unique concept where the community participates in selecting the theme of every episode.
In each episode, you will not only enjoy interesting conversations but also get a glimpse into the artistic process of creating an NFT. Each artist will have 10 minutes to do a sketch and walk the audience through their creative process. Each show will feature artists and collectors in the NFT space.
Serving as a bridge between the Spanish-speaking and English-speaking worlds of NFTs, The Joy of NFTs will have Latin and Spanish speakers and artists as guests on the show with the goal to educate, entertain and inspire artists and creators around the world.
