This month, giant photo editing ecosystem Pixlr confirmed the launch of Pixlr Genesis. This ambitious NFT project aims to become the largest decentralized art museum on the metaverse – one that will even rival the Louvre, the National Gallery, or MoMa!
The upcoming movement will offer 10,000 NFT passes, allowing holders to showcase their NFTs in a crowdsourced museum. What’s more, owners will also benefit from exclusive NFT tools and art drops, all while creating valuable network connections.
How does Pixlr Genesis work?
The innovative concept behind Pixlr Genesis allows NFT artists and collectors to choose what they wish to display in the museum. While other similar institutions decide which art pieces to display, Pixlr Genesis gives you this freedom.
In fact, the decentralized art museum will offer 10,000 NFT passes. The exclusive video below reveals the main reasons why you should get one:
In essence, each Pixlr Genesis pass entitles you to choose which NFT art pieces you want to display. As a holder, you’ll also decide how you want to invest the upcoming secondary royalty funds. What’s more, you also gain access to exclusive NFT art drops that enrich your collection with valuable items!
Last but not least, owning a pass provides you with innovative NFT tools to create a one-of-a-kind digital experience for the community.
Accordingly, the 10,000 slots available will come in five categories. Each category will offer different perks to its holders, which will be revealed over time. However, all NFT pieces will be manually signed with a secret attribute.
Of course, a project of this magnitude deserves an equally powerful ecosystem – and that’s exactly what Pixlr Genesis has.
The Pixlr Genesis ecosystem
According to the official website, Pixlr Genesis’ new ecosystem aims to ‘define new boundaries of art and intellectual property.’ What does this mean?
First of all, it means a decentralized art gallery that will likely reign for years to come; a gallery owned by the community, for the community. Secondly, everybody will be able to mint the NFTs within the ecosystem easily, thus empowering content creators.
Furthermore, the museum will also release a Masterpiece every six months. This art piece will feature all of the 10,000 NFTs displayed during that time, further increasing artists’ exposure.
All of these efforts come with one main goal: to facilitate artists’ access to the NFT market. Pixlr Genesis aims to educate the mainstream public through a simple, yet effective ecosystem, and allow content creators’ careers to flourish digitally too.
Project roadmap & launch date
Of course, a project that might rival the world’s top museums comes with an ambitious roadmap too.
By New Year’s Eve, the team is planning to integrate with photo editing giant Pixlr, create a Board of Advisors, and start to build a community. At the beginning of 2022, Pixlr Genesis will finally launch. Once the first 200 artists join the decentralized museum, and the first airdrops will begin too.
Over the next summer, Pixlr Genesis will grant public access to its virtual art galleries. Meanwhile, NFT pass holders will get open access to showcase their digitalized art pieces. The final plan of the roadmap (for now) is to start distributing Pixlr Grants to source art, at the end of 2022.
For now, though, the team has already chosen several content creators to work on five exclusive collections that will drop on Pixlr Genesis. Surprisingly, each collection will ‘push the boundaries within the NFT space,’ as they’ll be linked to games, community, or innovative collectibles.
However, accomplishing so many revolutionary goals needs an ambitious team too. Let’s meet the powerful groups working to turn Pixlr Genesis into reality.
Pixlr & Phosus: a powerful collaboration
The two companies behind the Pixlr Genesis project are Phosus and Pixlr.
Created way back in 2008, Pixlr was first helping users edit and share images easier than ever. Today, the freemium platform is expanding its tech features to further improve content creation. In fact, the team who created Pixlr has also created Inmagine – a design platform that uses AI tools to facilitate the virtual design process.
Pixlr CEO Ola Sevandersson, Pixlr Genesis matches the company’s goals of supporting content creators worldwide:
“Pixlr has always been in the forefront of creative expression and the NFT space is an exciting possibility for artists to reach new audiences and show off their work,” he says.
“Inmagine is an ecosystem used by tens of millions of users monthly,” Inmagine CEO Warren Leow adds.“We hope Pixlr Genesis can be our contribution towards helping NFT creators showcase their art to a wider audience.”
Considering the two companies’ backgrounds, their Phosus collaboration is a perfect match. In fact, Phosus is also exploring AI technologies to create image enhancement tools at affordable costs. Together, these giants are planning to revolutionize the NFT market, while supporting traditional and digital visual artists.
Release dates & future announcements
If you’d like to showcase your NFT in the largest decentralized museum to date, you’d better prepare your digital wallet!
The first 2,000 NFT passes will drop on December 1st at 03:00 p.m. EST.
In summary, the 2022 launch of Pixlr Genesis might be the beginning of a new Renaissance. Whether you’re a traditional artist, a digital content creator, or an avid collector, this NFT project will likely revolutionize your virtual experience.
