These digital collectibles are based on landscapes of Manhattan and Tribeca, as the center of New York’s creative community.
NFTs are developed on the Ethereum network, and cost 0.5 ETH (as of today approximately $749 dollars), if acquired through OKX’s NFT OKX’s NFT marketplace, paying with Ethers previously credited to the buyer’s account.
