Likewise, the bar will have an exclusive place for famous people and celebrities who are interested in getting hold of some of the digital collectibles and thus receive special attention in the facilities of the place.

Mateo Aguirre is the illustrator in charge of designing the “Astroneas” NFTs that also received this name because, according to the creators of the project, they seek to celebrate the “nea” culture of Medellín. “It is intended to give a voice to the neighborhoods, the streets, the artists, graffiti artists and dancers of the city,” the spokesperson concluded.
