LONDON, October 28, 2022: Founded in 2012, the pioneering international contemporary art gallery HOFA Gallery will celebrate its tenth anniversary on November 11, 2022 by launching London’s first-ever decentralized blockchain-powered community of contemporary art collectors called HOFA DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) .
HOFA DAO’s new artistic community-led organization will allow its members to make all decisions regarding the governance of their artistic portfolio, such as voting for new acquisitions. HOFA’s vision is to make investing in contemporary art open and accessible to everyone using Blockchain technology. This is a natural next step for a company that has a strong track record of creating accessible artistic experiences through contemporary art and top-notch investments.
HOFA Co-Founder Elio D’Anna says of the HOFA DAO, “While the NFT digital collectibles market has shrunk over the past 10 months, we’ve seen a 20% increase in the number of collectors investing in physical assets through the use of NFT authentication and blockchain technology.This is the unique aspect of the HOFA DAO, membership is obtained through NFT passes giving access to works of physical art of investment quality, thus the collector benefits from the double security of the blockchain with the stability of the traditional art market.
He adds, “This is the new beginning of HOFA’s second decade of pioneering artistic experiences.”
The founding artist members are 100 highly selected global artists and the $3,000,000 portfolio includes works by top notch artists like Daniel Arsham and Invader, as well as established and emerging contemporary artists such as Jan Kaláb, Zhuang Hong Yi, Ilhwa Kim and bio-generative. the artist Agoria.

Other membership benefits include VIP access to exhibitions, art fairs, early releases, and access to HOFAVERSE, a new multi-user interactive Metaverse VR gallery.
