Detroit, Michigan (USA) – September 28, 2021: Today, AmplifyX, in partnership with the Nicole Tamer Art Gallery, announced the first-ever pop-up NFT music gallery featuring artists from the Detroit music industry. AmplifyX, an NFT music marketplace built on the Tezos blockchain, and the Nicole Tamer Art Gallery, a Detroit-based art gallery specializing in contemporary fine art with a focus on emerging and established artists, are pleased to collaborate on the launch of the Detroit Culture Club.
Located in the historic David Whitney Building in downtown Detroit, the Detroit Culture Club pop-up NFT music gallery will be open to the public on the evening of Wednesday, September 29 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT.

AmplifyX was founded by music lovers across the technology, entertainment, and financial industries to leverage their expertise to build a better world for creators. They are building the digital toolkit to empower creators to finance and monetize their work in Web 3.0 through their community by leveraging utility NFTs.
“Over the last few months, most people have heard a lot about NFTs—but few people actually own them. At AmplifyX, we are trying to change that. One of our goals is to make buying an NFT as easy as buying a t-shirt online.” says Adam Cowherd CEO of AmplifyX
By unlocking access to unreleased songs, audiovisual works, and exclusive experiences — NFTs will be the passport to the digital age. By building on Tezos, AmplifyX is creating a cultural marketplace where artists get paid and fans can own a piece of history. Attendees will be able to purchase NFTs using credit card payment options with staff on hand to provide any assistance needed. All attendees are welcome for an evening of art, wine, live music, and more, and will receive a free NFT to commemorate this historic moment for the city.
Tezos is one of the original Proof of Stake layer one blockchain networks and is among the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly blockchains in existence. On Tezos, developers are able to easily build powerful decentralized applications and products. Projects and brands such as Red Bull Racing Honda, McLaren Racing, OneOf, Ubisoft, Interpop, Hic-Et-Nunc, and more have chosen to build on the Tezos blockchain.
Tezos is constantly innovating and upgrading because of its proven on-chain governance. Improvements are continuously proposed by participants on the network, voted on, adopted, and deployed — all without the need to rely on hard forks. So far, Tezos has undergone seven network upgrades, with the eighth soon to come, that have reduced gas fees by 70%, improved token standards, increased transaction speed, and more. With over 4.8 million contract calls and counting in September, Tezos is one of the fastest-growing blockchain ecosystems.
