Acknowledging Value and Support
The first transaction of mints will reward community members who have consistently added value and supported artists, collectors, and the overall ecosystem. Additionally, acts of kindness that showcase the beautiful nature of participants in the digital art universe will be recognized and rewarded. Notably, individuals from the creator’s past who have been instrumental in supporting Art Blocks and the personal journey will also receive Squiggles.
Supporting Causes and Organizations
snowfro expressed gratitude by gifting Squiggles to organizations, including charitable ones, that align with their values. The SquiggleDAO, a dedicated group with a clear mission and strong contributions to the Chromie Squiggle project, will receive five Chromie Squiggles for their treasury. Furthermore, ten Chromie Squiggles will be consigned to Venus over Manhattan gallery, to be included in future offerings as they navigate both the web3 and traditional art worlds.
Personal Tokens of Appreciation
The second transaction holds immense personal significance for snowfro. In a heartfelt gesture, a Squiggle will be minted as a gift for each coworker at Art Blocks. This acknowledgment recognizes the pivotal role played by the team members during the challenging and transformative journey of Art Blocks. snowfro expresses deep gratitude for the unwavering support and patience demonstrated by the team.
Revisiting the Family Gift Plan
Originally planning to gift 100 Squiggles to their children, snowfro reconsidered and decided to share these last few mints with individuals working closely alongside them on a daily basis. While the family will still receive a significant number of Squiggles, snowfro believes that including more people in this unique journey aligns better with the project’s original intent.
Excitement for Future Developments
Looking ahead, snowfro expressed immense excitement for the upcoming mint of 10 Squiggles to FlamingoDAO, an early supporter of Squiggles, Art Blocks, and generative art. snowfro proudly identifies as a member and appreciates the positivity, integrity, and presence of the Flamingo community, making web3 a better place.
The Squiggles project continues to captivate and engage the digital art community with its generous and community-focused approach. The recent minting announcement highlights the recognition of value, support, and kindness within the ecosystem, as well as snowfro’s heartfelt gratitude towards the Art Blocks team. With each mint, Squiggles solidifies its position as a pioneering force in the world of generative art, leaving enthusiasts eager to witness the developments that unfold in this unique artistic journey.
