In this innovative system, BAE GALLERY imposes a nominal charge of only 1.5% as a commission fee to allow individuals and artists to create and establish their art galleries. The week-long grand NFT artwork exhibition shall also feature uniquely customized art galleries of the BAE artists, including Ichi Hatano, Steven Daily, Senju Shunga, and more.
