RLTY, a leading metaverse platform, has announced a partnership with renowned auction house Sotheby’s to host the first-ever NFT auction within the metaverse.

The immersive event is set to take place during the upcoming 4th edition of Paris Blockchain Week from 20-24 March 2023 in Paris, le Carrousel du Louvre. It will feature a live auction of NFTs within the RLTY World metaverse, showcasing digital works from top artists such as Beeple, Julien Rivoire and Brinkman.

This groundbreaking collaboration marks a significant milestone for the NFT market, demonstrating virtual assets’ growing interest and potential within the art world. RLTY’s metaverse platform allows collectors and art enthusiasts to participate in the auction in a unique and immersive way, creating a new dimension to the traditional auction experience.

Sotheby’s has been a key player in the art world for almost 300 years, and its collaboration with RLTY underscores the growing importance of the digital space for art and collectibles. The company’s reputation is built on the expertise of its global network of specialists, which spans 40 countries and 44 departments.

Sotheby’s offers a wide range of categories, including Contemporary Art, Chinese Works of Art, Modern and Impressionist Art, Old Masters, jewelry, watches, wine and spirits and interiors, among others.

The fine arts company hosts more than 600 auctions annually and offers a diverse selection of items that can be purchased through both physical stores and online channels, as well as private sales. The company has also embraced emerging technologies, such as the rapidly growing NFT market, to adapt and stay relevant within the constantly evolving global art and luxury industries.

The event will be divided into four stages and will broadcast live panel discussions, debates and keynote speeches during Paris Blockchain Week. The event’s main speakers are distinguished individuals from the digital industry, such as Jean-Noël Barrot, the Minister for Digital Transformation and Telecommunications of France. Other notable speakers include Steve Huffman, co-founder of Reddit, and Nasdaq’s Senior Vice President, Ira Auerbach.

Making Web3 conferences, talent hunt widely available

RLTY co-founder Raphael Assouline expressed his excitement about partnering with Paris Blockchain Week. He emphasized the importance of making Web3 conferences accessible on a global scale.

“We’re excited to partner with Paris Blockchain Week. It’s vital for the development of the space that web3 conferences can be accessed from anywhere in the world. We’re looking forward to seeing the Web3 XP community come together and explore the commercial viability of blockchain tech,” Assouline said.

RLTY is a startup aiming to develop easy-to-use tools that help brands and events establish virtual spaces on the leading metaverse platforms. It also works with event organizers in various industries, such as music, fashion and art.

Additionally, through its partnership with Paris Blockchain Week, RLTY will allow the public to participate in the PBW Talent Fair, an opportunity for attendees to connect with leading recruiters and learn about the latest developments in the Web3 industry.

The virtual Talent Fair will offer access to a range of resources, including networking spaces, private meeting rooms and more than 30 sponsors with virtual booths. It is an ideal event for students and entrepreneurs who are looking for job opportunities in the Web3 industry but cannot travel to Paris.

Top recruiters from the Web3, crypto, and blockchain industry will share their insights, strategies and experience to help attendees build successful careers in Web3. PBW Talent Fair participants can use the 20 virtual private rooms available for interviews and meetings, all equipped with geospatial audio capabilities, avatar tracking and a full range of video and audio tools.
