Pixel-by-Pixel, New Project Offers Game Where Crypto Players Can Create Blockchain Art
The “first arts and games smart economy on the EOS blockchain” is planning to use non-fungible tokens to address issues of provenance in the art community.
A new project is gearing up to be the “first arts and games smart economy on the EOS blockchain” — offering games and giving artists the chance to showcase their creative works and monetize their passion.
PixEOS says that the first game on its platform offers a new twist on the pixel-drawing titles previously seen on the EOS blockchain. Offering a 1 million pixel canvas, PixEOS Paint offers a profit-sharing system where players can paint pixels over one another and create a collaborative art piece. At the conclusion of every game, a blank canvas begins — meanwhile, the previous masterpiece is “immortalized in a blockchain gallery and becomes a valuable non-fungible token that can be bought as a collectible, sold and traded.”
According to the project’s white paper, the PixEOS Paint game is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2019, heralding the start of the artistic platform. The team hopes to build a collective where both established artists and newcomers can collaborate and bond in their shared passion, with an array of platforms where creators can share ideas, improve their skills and be compensated for their work. PixEOS has already established strategic partnerships with EOSphere, Cypherglass, TokenPocket, MeetOne and BetDice.
The canvas created by PixEOS users is converted into a non-fungible token that goes up for sale as a piece of digital art in a specially created gallery. On a weekly basis, users will be given the chance to vote for their favorite canvas, and the winner will go to the highest bidder in the PixEOS Auction House.
This will be complemented by an Art House where crypto enthusiasts can ask their favorite artists on the platform to create works on their behalf. Through this service, users can commission “artworks, artwork prints, merchandise and print-on-demand cool stuff” from PixEOS talent. The white paper adds: “You need a customized sticker set, a logo, a gif, a banner or any other Creative Media service? You can hire one of the featured artists or content creators and support the artists community on the EOS ecosystem.”
PixEOS says that it is passionate about supporting crypto artists, and has high hopes that its platform will make it easier to prove authorship of both digital and physical works — an issue that has been something of a challenge in the online world.
In recent months, the startup has been working to build up its core team and says its executives boast “more than 20 years of experience in branding, activation, marketing, software development and UI/UX.”
PixEOS says it has confirmed listing on major exchanges with the support of its community, with the adoption of its platform increasing over time. Artists will be able to convert their creations to non-fungible tokens if they wish, and PixEOS’s NFT standard will be made available to the EOS ecosystem in the future.
According to the company, it has already established partnerships with wallets, DApp stores, other EOS-based games and block producers to “implement a healthy and long-lasting platform” and blockchain-based marketplace where art rights can be bought and sold for use or collection.
PixEOS says that it is using an organic marketing strategy to generate a positive buzz within its community — eliminating the bear market that’s all too often seen in the crypto world these days. The project plans to distribute tokens through a plethora of contests and GIF competitions — and every 100th member who joins the platform receives a prize as a thank you for their support.
The platform has also taken pride in offering creative branding through eight featured artists and says the pixelated avatars they have created have gone viral throughout the EOS community.
Now, PixEOS is preparing to launch an art contest that it believes will be the biggest collaborative effort ever seen in the EOS ecosystem. This competition will boast a renowned international panel of judges.
