NFT in the art world & in the studio: harmonicist Cy Leo, pianist Joyce Cheung & a string quartet

If you are technically inclined, or even if you are just someone looking for new ways to invest or make money, you have probably heard about cryptocurrency and its digital ledger, blockchain. There are many cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin and Ethereum are probably the best known. Now NFT, non-fungible tokens, units of data stored on a blockchain that certify the uniqueness and ownership of any digital file, are providing artists and collectors with new ways to create, collect, and invest in, works of art.

Earlier this year, even though the Covid-19 pandemic has made international travel more difficult if not dangerous, harmonicist Cy Leo went to New York to pursue his dream. In January of this year, he went to New York to embark on a new musical journey. He has described the five months he spent in the Big Apple as “the most luxurious period of his life” because he was able to focus solely on working on his dream. Cy recently returned to Hong Kong and has already lined up a couple of concerts. He came to our studio to tell us more.
