NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) have taken the world by storm, but it’s rare that they are combined with food. Recently EchoX, an NFT curating and management platform which aims to integrate crypto art into immersive, real-life experiences, joined hands with chef André Chiang, VR director Hsin-Chien Huang and contemporary artist Billy Chang to create an edible NFT titled ‘We Are What We Eat’.
Three editions of the NFT were created. The most exclusive is the Genesis NFT, of which only three pieces were minted and these were exclusively collected by the three artists.
Eight Origin NFTs were created, derived from Chiang’s Octaphilosophy with each one unique and corresponding to his eight elements: Unique, Pure, Texture, Memory, Salt, South, Artisan, Terroir. Collectors of the Origin NFTs were invited to a Creator’s Night at Chiang’s restaurant Raw in Taipei on 21 December 2021 to enjoy an immersive, sensory art journey.
