ABOUT

OLEA consists of the production of a new olive oil that contains the code of a cryptocurrency, synthesised and produced in DNA. With this new liquid, Solimán López is developing a series of NFTs, sculptures, audiovisuals and installations.

OLEA proposes a space for reflection and a rapprochement of species, concepts, economies, societies and information flows that converge into a single fluid – Olive oil. 

The project represents a historic innovation in contemporary art and in agriculture, biologically connecting two of the most important historical economies, crypto and agriculture.

In a second stage the project is presents a series of autogenerated NFTs produced by OLEA token itself.

The project has been developed in collaboration with the Instituto de la Grasa Sevilla that belongs to CSIC, with the support of Instituto Espronceda, ESAT (Escuela Superior de Arte y Tecnología).

The initial OLEA Token has been created by Blue Room Innovation company.

BIOTECHNOLOGY

OLEA incorporates a conceptual look at NFTs and cryptocurrencies, connected through science and the latest digital storage systems based on genetic code. Becoming a unique artistic content that represents one of the biggest revolutions in the history of mankind, the digital era and the era of decentralised economies.This vision allows us to connect two major global and historic economies: the newest economy (cryptocurrencies) and the oldest in our history (agriculture).

We use state-of-the-art digital storage systems which allows us to store information in DNA, which together with blockchain technology, NFTs and digital art, make OLEA a project of its own kind. The future of OLEA is to become the technology applied by a large sector of the world’s agriculture. Our technology biologically links a cryptocurrency with a primary product of the earth, in this case, olive oil..

BIO DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL ECOSYSTEM

The OLEA NFT self-generation platform is intended to generate a valid ecosystem for feedback from digital to natural and vice versa.

Holders of the OLEA token obtain at least one NFT per week that is self-generated according to different types of collections and concepts. The profits obtained from the sales of these digital assets will become part of the royalty ecosystem of the project, offering a clear support to projects with needs in the biotechnology sector, sustainable agriculture and agricultural innovation.
