Today, our landmark implementation of Project Black NFT shows how we can help different companies and brands define the future of their consumer experiences and value propositions in an increasingly digital world.
Comments by NFT artist Idriss B “I’m super proud to be part of this incredible first of its kind across NFT. Not only is the concept great, but the car itself is a work of art. The fact that it is fierce, powerful and rare inspired me to sublimate it to the best. When MContent came to me I was totally into the concept and had thousands of ideas immediately, knowing that the NFT element pushes boundaries and gives me endless possibilities for creativity, I also wanted to represent the car and bring real value to NFT holders.
Partner of the event, Anas Bhurtun, CEO of Arts Dao, a leading global community of NFT artists, collectors and enthusiasts, says: “Arts DAO is thrilled to partner with MContent for this one-of-a-kind event. The utility in the NFT space is quickly becoming the most valuable pillar of any project, with the “Project Black” utility at the forefront, allowing luxury car enthusiasts to get behind the wheel of an AMG car they might not have had the chance to drive otherwise. We are grateful to be able to help merge both the NFT world and the world of luxury cars, this is just the beginning of what NFT technology can bring.
This unique NFT has many utilities, ranging from owning, driving and experiencing the car for a month every year to owning the unique 3D NFT model of the car and a real physical miniature of the car with unique elements based on the number of the NFT. In addition to shared ownership, after a few years, MContent will resell the car and redistribute the value directly to its NFT holders. MContent also announced that a fixed amount of proceeds from NFT sales will be donated to the Rashid Center for People of Determination as part of its CSR framework.

Born and raised in Paris, Idriss has been interested in art since childhood. 3 years ago, he began his career as an artist.
