Picasso’s Granddaughter Says Family Will Continue Producing NFTs
Marina Picasso says her son’s NFT collection has been endorsed by Claude Picasso, even after initial pushback from family members.
Their NFT collection, titled “Man and the Beat,” has struggled to sell at its high mint price of 2 ETH each (roughly $5,800) since reports surfaced that Claude Picasso, head of the Picasso Administration, did not initially approve of the NFTs. Despite celebrities like singer John Legend promoting the project, few have actually sold, since the collection was launched almost three weeks ago.
Decentralized marketplace Origin Protocol is still hosting the collection via a custom website.
