Pak is one of the most influential and impactful creators of digital art in the NFT/cryptoart landscape. He is known for his innovative work with blockchain technology, including founding Ethereum-based artist collective, cryptograffiti. Pak is also a member of the Ethereum Foundation’s Security Working Group and has served on the board of directors for Rhizome’s ArtBase platform.
Known for challenging the status quo whether it’s through introducing new mechanisms of collecting, such as the now commonplace open edition or introducing crucial (often controversial) conversation, Pak’s work extends far beyond the typical art experience.
Today, we are excited to announce that collectors will now have the option to buy or sell artworks on the secondary market from high demand Pak releases, whether they were dropped on other platforms, such as Merge or LostPoets, or released on MakersPlace, such as The Creation. Purchasing a creation from one of these collections on MakersPlace allows you to benefit from guaranteed authenticity and a low commission fee of only 0.5%.
Merge introduces a new mechanism to collect, with a built-in scarcity mechanism that allows collectors to combine many “mass” NFTs into a single dynamic token. If a collector acquires more than one mass NFT, they will merge into a single mass NFT with a summed mass value. The size and form of collectors’ tokens change with the amount of mass they’ve accumulated. Merge tokens may also be used with mass. black, a soon-to-be-released claim mechanism that is part of the Burn ecosystem and ASH.
To celebrate the landing of the Merge collection on the MakersPlace verified third party marketplace we will be purchasing multiple Merge NFTs listed on MakersPlace and gifting the tokens to lucky community members. Past or present collectors of Pak’s creations on MakersPlace (including Terminus, or The Creation) as well as current owners of Merge and LostPoets with a verified account and connected wallet will be automatically entered into the giveaway.
LostPoets is an NFT collectible and a strategy game. The NFT collection includes 65536 obtainable NFTs and 1024 Origin NFTs.
Unlike many other NFT collectibles, these poet NFTs are not constructed of modular pieces. Each Poet is created by an AI that was developed specifically for that purpose. They’re diverse, sophisticated, and most importantly, they’re all unique and different from one another.
Every Poet comes from one of the 1024 pure origin NFTs. Origins are manipulated by 256 different latent genes, giving every Poet individuality, value and meaning.
Collectors will be able to give their Poets names and create their own tales. As a consequence, the explorers of this civilization will mold it.
The entire LostPoets experience will unfold through 6 acts, with a new component to the project being introduced with each act.
Learn more about LostPoets and its roadmap on the project’s website.
What if the process of creation was a collective journey? A serendipitous exchange between the creator and collectors? The Creation is a bold concept by famed digital creator Pak that brings you – the collector – into their creative process.
The creation consisted of 35 x 16 tiles, each representing a unique section of a recreation of “The Creation of Adam” by Michelangelo. Each tile obtained contributed to the final creation, converting collectors into creators of the final artwork.
