A$AP Ferg Performs at VFILES X Artie Launch Party

And is accompanied by some special guests…

Besides the infamous NFT.NYC conference, star-studded parties and hundreds of digital assets up for sale, NFT week also saw the official partnership of Artie and the innovative digital creator platform, VFILES. Last week, Artie debuted its first collection of dynamic NFT collectibles – fittingly called “Arties.” These collectibles are created in collaboration with some of the world’s top artists and can be inserted into mobile apps like Instagram, Discord, Twitter and TikTok. Not to mention, before the year wraps, Artie is set to debut their first game and release their first batch of NFTs.

“We are thrilled to unveil our first collection this week at VFILES. It’s the ideal place for us to onboard and educate people who are interested in NFTs and Web3 — the internet of the future.” says Artie co-founder, Armando Kirwin.

The new partnership will also extend into further collaborations, which includes an extension of VFILES’ renowned Runway and Lab program. As the program supported emerging creators then, they aim to extend that opportunity to make gaming and NFTs inclusive to all audiences now. 

“Since the beginning, VFILES mission has been to empower and level the playing field for a whole new generation of creatives and interrupt the status quo,” explains VFILES founder, Julie Anne Quay. “The emerging Web3 universe opens up a whole new world of economic opportunity and mobility for creatives and entrepreneurs. Artie+VFILES means that our diverse, passionate and world-class community of creative leaders can step right into the Web3 conversation; physically and digitally.”

And to kick off the partnership, VFILES and Artie threw a star-studded New York City party at the PUBLIC Hotel. There, A$AP Ferg performed his new single Dreams, Fairytales, Fantasies and some of his hits including none other than, Plain Jane. Beabadoobee, Dylan Ali and the Black Star Kids were also among those who performed.
