    "We're thrilled to bring incredible Ordinals programming to a Miami Art Week audience through this event," said Erin Redwing, CEO of Inscribing Atlantis and President of Open Ordinals Institute, "Ordinal Inscriptions are an entirely new artistic medium that blends traditional artistry and cutting-edge technology, and I truly believe the programming we've crafted will resonate with those who appreciate the ongoing evolution of creativity."

    The conference programming will be emceed by Isabel Foxen Duke, GP of Unbroken Chain Fund and director of OMBounties with Ordinal Maxi Biz. "Bitcoin is by far the safest place to store digital art long-term," she explained in an interview, "as more collectors realize this, we'll see Ordinals dominate luxury NFT markets."

    Guests will enjoy curated art around the Sagamore lobby, including mixed-media art, physical paintings, digital canvases, an immersive, curved LED wall, and more. This artwork will be displayed during the entirety of Miami Art Week.

    "Artistic expression is often about connection, so in these increasingly rare moments where we can meet and connect in person, we want to make sure it's special," explained Nick Sainato, co-founder of Gamma.io. "This event will be the result of many months of careful planning and execution, and I'm confident the finished product will showcase artists in a proper light."
