The Currency, the first NFT collection by Damien Hirst. Reimagining the way NFTs are used, The Currency is a collection of 10,000 NFTs that correspond to 10,000 unique physical artworks.
Starting with the creation of the physical artworks in 2016, The Currency explores the boundaries of art and currency—when art changes and becomes a currency, and when currency becomes art. Owners initially received NFTs but must ultimately decide between the digital NFT or the physical artwork, both of which are artworks in their own right. Whichever the owners pick, the other gets burned.
