What is Fingerprints?
Fingerprints is a global community that champions blockchain art.
We collect artworks that explore the creative possibilities of blockchain and commission new projects by leading digital artists.
Founded in 2021, the Fingerprints Collection includes canonical blockchain artworks by Larva Labs, Rhea Myers, Mitchell F Chan, Sarah Meyohas, 0xDEAFBEEF and more. Many of these artists are members of our community.
We are passionate about supporting artists, fostering experimentation, and educating the world about this emerging field of artistic practice and the technology that underpins it.
What are $PRINTS tokens?
$PRINTS is the governance token of Fingerprints. You must own at least 5,000 $PRINTS to join as a member.
Our token is a means to gain exposure to our collection and wield voting power within the organization.
What are the perks of Fingerprints membership?
Fingerprints members gain exclusive access to our private discord channels, where they can mingle with our collected artists and other cool members.
Members also have priority access to events and projects produced by Fingerprints.
We're constantly working to expand the perks of Fingerprints membership, so there's always more to come!
How does Fingerprints' curation system work?
The Curation Committee, elected by the Fingerprints community, oversees all acquisitions.
Artworks are assessed by the Committee according to a framework composed of four categories. The work must respond to at least one of them in either form or concept:
|On-chain storage||The artwork can be recreated from information stored on the blockchain|
|Dynamism||The artwork is responsive to on-chain activity, such as block time or oracles|
|Coordination-based||The artwork incentivizes coordinated behavior by human or non-human agents|
|Value and ownership||The artwork critically examines financial value, markets, and/or ownership, or deploys its own economic mechanisms|
This framework reflects our belief that art is essential for helping us understand blockchain’s growing importance in the world.
