The popular artist Spacebrat released an open-edition NFT using an innovative new technology last week. She partnered with CXIP Labs to allow fans to mint a free NFT using several different blockchains. How did Spacebrat manage to release an NFT on multiple chains at once?
How Did Spacebrat Release an NFT on Multiple Blockchains?
Collectors minted Spacebrat’s free open-edition NFT titled “Gleam” over 300,000 times in a 48-hour window. Part of this success stemmed from Spacebrat partnering with the Holograph platform for the release. Developed by CXIP Labs, the Holograph protocol permits a multi-chain approach toward owning digital assets.
By using Holograph, Spacebrat was able to release “Gleam” on Ethereum, Avalanche, BNB Chain, and Polygon. From there, holders can bridge the NFT from chain to chain whenever they please. CXIP Labs describes the NFTs minted using Holograph technology as assets “that exist as single instances across multiple execution environments”.
Spacebrat was surprised at the overwhelming interest in the piece. Halfway through the mint, she took to Twitter to post, “I cannot believe planet Earth minted my first NFT 30,762 times in the last 23 hours. You guys are on another level!” After her tweet, mints skyrocketed with a majority of purchases coming from Polygon users.
