At the gala, Realm acquired two of Forbes’s most exciting and diverse covers. Larby’s instincts to acquire these covers demonstrate his recognition of both the aspirational nature of the humans represented on those covers, and his vision for how their stories can play a role in the Metaverse. The the two men on the Forbes Covers are from very different walks of life, and both of their stories have impacted the world significantly.

Larby bid first and acquired the covers featuring Sir Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton, The British racing Driver who himself is a rebel with a cause, and David Iakobachvili, who is based in Monaco and founded the Collection, one of the most extensive collections of rare and unique artwork, antique music boxes and valuable collectibles on the planet. David is also Co-Chair of B20 Employment & Education Task Force & Chairman of the RSPP Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development. Realm is currently exploring working with David to bring his art into the Metaverse and create a one of a kind collection of NFTs.

Realm will continue to push philanthropy and grow Art with a purpose.
The socially conscious decision of Larby to make the first bid of the night on two Covers was genius in a room filled with Cryptos finest. During his speech, Matthew spoke with passion and educated a unique audience of sophisticated art lovers. The diverse evening was held at the historical Monaco Yacht Club.
