👁 🐻 Introducing the Blind Gallery - Bear Market Edition
Here are all the details about the next Blind Gallery experience!
It is finally time to unveil all the details about the upcoming Blind Gallery edition!
But first, let’s take a step back and review the Blind Gallery concept.
What is the Blind Gallery?
The Blind Gallery is a new collecting experience on Tezos where art is at the center stage. Collectors select the artworks they like without knowing who the creators are.
The inspiration, story, and hints about the artists and their artworks we’ll be shared during the event, so you can try to guess who they are.
You can exchange a Mint Pass for your favorite NFT during the Exchange Period. In the end, once the Exchange Period is over, we’ll reveal the artists’ identities.
The Bear Market Theme
The current worldwide situation is affecting everyone, despite your role in or out of the NFT and art space. We want to leave a historical stamp and remember this as a time when artists transformed difficult times into something special.
A new group of outstanding artists has been working heads down for weeks, creating their own version of the bear market piece. The given prompts were:
“Bear market, FUD, NFTs are dead, right click save, economic recession, high inflation.”
The artworks will be revealed from the 1st to the 8th of August.
The Mint Pass sales will happen on our website on the 9th of August.
The Mint Passes can be exchanged for one NFT from the 11th to the 17th of August.
We’ll reveal the artists after that.
Feedback From the Community
We listened to your feedback, and this time the NFTs will be minted directly by each artist using an anon wallet instead of the Blind Gallery wallet. This way, the artists can update their wallet information after the event, thus making it more transparent and easy to access.
We had three objectives when designing this edition, and all are equally important to us.
Reward our supporters and collectors. We couldn’t be more grateful to see many enthusiastic collectors at the first event. We involved community members in the design of this edition. We listened to their feedback regarding the pricing, utility, and Mint Pass supply.
Reward the participating artists for their effort. Outstanding artists are part of the Blind Gallery, and we must ensure they are rewarded fairly. For that reason, we thought carefully about the right balance between making the Mint Pass accessible and adequate for the artists’ quality.
Give newcomers a chance to experience the Blind Gallery. One of my favorite parts of the event was seeing newcomers getting interested in the rich art history that was created in a short time. Therefore, we aimed for the right balance to allow new participants while maintaining an exclusive feeling.
With those aspects in mind, we settled for the following numbers.
Price and Tokenomics
There will be 1300 Mint Passes.
We slightly increased the Mint Passes so more people can experience the event and be part of our community.
The Mint Pass price will be 20 Tezos.
We slightly increased the price to adjust to the Tezos value.
First edition collectors (with a Mint Certificate) will have 500 reserved spots that can be redeemed by burning the Mint Certificate + 10 Tezos (50% discount).
This will happen before the public sale - with a 6 to 8 hours window.
Everything happens on our website; please don’t burn the certificate yourself!
Each artist + the Blind Gallery team members will receive 1 Mint Pass.
