Updated: Jun 30, 2022
On May 4, 2022, BOAX hosted its Virtual Niche: BOAX NFT Exhibition at the Event Space of Central Market, Hong Kong. The NFT Exhibition featured BOAX’s signature NFT series: First of Its Kind in the World - BOAX Feng Shui Art NFTs; RMBits - the world’s first Chinese 3D voxel art featuring famous characters in Chinese literature; Dominic X Ian – LamIan Metaverse; “Time Travel X Banknote”; Yazhou Zhoukan (亞洲週刊) “Great Powers” NFT series; NFTs x Authentic Paintings; Face off X AI; and Cang Hai Yi Sheng Shao (滄海一聲笑) by Ms. Dai Wenhua (代文華), a Chinese artist who was invited to display her artwork in Venice Biennale 2022, and more.
The RMBits collection includes characters from Journey to the West (西遊記), Romance of the Three Kingdoms (三國演義), Dream of the Red Chamber (紅樓夢) and Chinese Mythology. The RMBits collection was not mass-produced using algorithm, rather every character was created individually by the best efforts from a highly talented creative team, ushering in a new perspective in blockchain aesthetics with Chinese cultural undertones. “Time Travel X Banknote NFT” series brings to life the authentic and very rare Chinese antique banknotes emblazoned with mottos, emblems, and historical imagery which provide a window into the rich historical Chinese cultural heritage.

Mr. Ian Wen, the founder of BOAX and the Chairman of BOA Financial Group, shared with the audience the reason he chose to build an Asian culture-inspired metaverse: “empowered by its financial ecosystem, BOAX is uniquely positioned as a strong player in the crypto space and serves to facilitate the most influential speakers in the crypto circle and beyond to unite and make positive social impact through the sharing of art in the digital form, connecting the younger, tech-savvy generation to the masterminds and their masterpieces.”
