We are a connected group that specializes in building communities, and we are excited to apply our talents, networks, and resources to maximizing opportunities for all in our community.

To qualify as a First and thus be included in House of First, artistic collections must meet at least one of two firm criteria:

  • First Ever: A metaverse debut with historic launch of a first-time NFT collection — OR –
  • First of a Kind: A premiere collection from an established NFT artist featuring a new format, subject, medium, style or another distinguishable characteristic that can unequivocally be considered a true First.

The integrity of “First” matters greatly as it connotes new, novel, and noteworthy and thus preserves historic value for artist and collector alike.
