Assembly is a gallery and agency in Houston, Texas that helps photographers and the groups that support them by showing important works from top fine art photographers and new talents. In 2022, they envisioned the Assembly Curated Platform to propose their audience get acquainted and benefit from adding NFTs to their work.

- support for digital and real-world art objects,
- auction bidding platform, and
- a custodial version of the auctions.
We quickly provided a simple and effective solution for the client. As a result, Assembly successfully launched their blockchain platform and continues to run it effectively, bringing value to the photography community through NFTs.
