Hey r/ethereum! We’re excited to announce a new landmark project—dCanvas!
dCanvas is a 1024 x 1024 canvas board based loosely on r/place (love you reddit), where each 4 x 4 pixel block is a ERC-721 standard NFT that allows only the owner to change the colors of the pixels.
As dCanvas develops, commissioned art pieces of the canvas board will be created and sold through art marketplaces (OpenSea, SuperRare, etc) with 100% of net profits distributed back to token holders. Once all tokens of the canvas are distributed, no additional blocks will ever be minted again.
Richard and I, the founders, are actually two doctors but have poured our hearts and souls into this project, working 120 hours a week to build it. We 100% believe in the power of decentralization and non-fungibility but feel that the recent wave of copycat projects is not a good showcase for the true potential of Ethereum. Our mission is to establish dCanvas as a unique, landmark project by pushing the boundaries of blockchain and give you all a chance to own a piece of crypto history.
Our app is live on our website and in preview mode, meaning anyone can draw on the board for free without needing to own a NFT, until we launch in late April. We also wanted to announce a contest for best preview board art! Whoever 1) draws the best picture, 2) follows our Twitter account, and 3) tweets a screenshot of the picture at us with their Ethereum address will be awarded 4 NFTs at launch! We are gathering some NFT community members as judges and will announce more soon 🙂
Feel free to ask us anything about our project or anything in general!
