An NFT temple arrives in Paris

On Saturday, October 22, the opening of the NFT Factory took place, a place dedicated to the discovery of NFT and Web3 projects. For this occasion we went to meet Titou Granier, office manager, who welcomed us to the premises of this completely new place, located in the heart of Paris, opposite the Center Pompidou.

Can you introduce yourself?

My name is Titou Granier, I am 22 years old. First passionate about cinema, I started studying art and cultural management at ICART. During the course of my internships, I quickly developed an appetite for the world of Web3, which led me to carry out numerous projects up to and including the NFT Factory.

Can you briefly define what NFTs are?

NFT is the acronym for “Non Fungible Token”, it is the title of ownership of a digital object, ie it allows authentication of the original holder of a file. Thanks to NFTs,œthe work becomes traceable and stored immutably on the blockchain: therefore it is even more effective than a paper certificate of authenticity! It is thanks to NFTs that crypto-art has been democratized. To learn more, you can sign up for our 20-minute Web3 discovery seminars.

What is your background in the world of NFTs?

NTFs really came to me gradually, without being interested in them at first. Two years ago, I was driven by the desire to remake the film industry. My idea was quite simple: I wanted to sell parts of the film and accompany them with merchandising. Thus, a parent can offer their child a pass to their favorite Disney and who would thus be the sole holder. NFTs then emerged as the ready solution. Not knowing much about this universe, I asked the director of my institution to create NFT courses. His answer was: “Okay for conferences, but you are the one who organizes them, here is a person you can contact.” Armed with the email address of Jean-Michel Paihlon – Nicolas Laugero Lasserre and he gathers together œObvious works – and my motivation I organized my first NFT conference. Then Jean-Michel Pailhon offered me an internship, I accepted without hesitation. The next day you trust me with a Ledger key, two hundred euros and these few words “Do what you want with it”. Since that day, I have never stopped working at NFT and I had the opportunity to attend the biggest world events of NFT, especially in Lisbon or in New York during the evening of the announcement of Ledger’s personal collection that I helped cure.

Can you introduce us to the NTF Factory project?

NFT Factory is the result of a collective of 128 founding members, who are also called “our founders”. The objective is to democratize this shared passion of Web3 and NFTs, as well as to federate a community. The NFT Factory is free and open to all audiences. You will find in this unique place NFT exhibitions, seminars and trainings to get started in the world of Web3, collect NFTs and even create them. There will also be a program of various events as well as an artist residency and a dedicated studio to support companies creating in the Web3 field. There is also an area exclusively for members – holders of The Members Node, the gallery’s NFT – located on the first floor. Exclusive events will be organized there.

Who does the NFT Factory consist of?

We are seven employees: Lucie Eleonord Riveron, CEO; Loris Maciera Coelho, project manager and CEO’s right-hand man; Fares Habida, Web3 project manager; Benoit Couty, artistic director; Samy Behrouni, communications manager and Raphaëla Leveque, founding manager.

What was your role in this project?

I am quite versatile. I am an office manager, I mainly take care of the cultural mediation of the bar, I also help with scenography and curation. I also attend NFT training.

News?

The collective works on several projects such as events, workspaces and other things still confidential, but still related to the democratization of NFTs and Web3.
