Reef, a layer one Substrate-based blockchain for DeFi, NFTs, and gaming, announced today it’s launching a new NFT division.

The division is focused on connecting with graffiti and electronic artists while scaling up it’s blockchain to be more NFT-friendly.

In the last two months, Reef has been working behind the scenes to kickstart its contribution to the NFT landscape. They’ve hired Philip Galaviz, an influential figure in the Denver music and art scene, to join the team as Head of NFT.

Philip has worked with Digitally Imported Radio, Global Dance, and numerous electronic music artists, and is building cultural art and music program via IRL collaborations. As Head of NFT, Philip will spearhead Reef’s business development and expand its offerings to a wide range of artists, beginning with electronic and graffiti artists, and album cover designers.

Philip and the Reef team pushed the first stage of their NFT wave at ETHDenver with a packed beginners workshop, meta wall, NFT contest, and introductions to graffiti artists such as TukeOne, Mike Graves, and Emit One DF.

On top of this, Reef recently announced their first wave of grant awardees with three NFT development projects being awarded some of the $210,500. These include Kanaloa, Dimension 11 Studios, and Oyster, who will be building marketplaces and other NFT dApps on Reef. 

Denko Mancheski, CEO of Reef, said, “I firmly believe we have identified one of the most impactful engagements we could make this year that will help cement Reef’s future as a blockchain for DeFi, NFTs, and gaming. Phillip is a well-known industry veteran with deep connections in the music and art world, and we’re working with new NFT projects to make Reef NFT-friendly and accessible to everyone.”

In the last two weeks, Reef made big moves in updating its blockchain. They launched ReefScan V2, and a $REEF Community Staking Bond. Denko and Reef team members will also be attending Binance Blockchain Week in Dubai at the end of the month.
