This was a period during the Dutch Golden Age when contract prices for some bulbs of the recently introduced and fashionable tulip reached extraordinary levels, with the major acceleration starting in 1634 and then dramatically collapsing in February 1637. It is generally considered to have been the first recorded speculative bubble or asset bubble in history. I want to reproduce this concept in the modern era, using the latest art and technology concepts to create beautiful tulips. Also solving some of the new century problems like low levels of concentration through gamification and token incentives.
