I’ve been working on a way to create literary NFTs, or at least NFTs with significant literary components, with HTML and CSS. Basically to demonstrate that NFTs aren’t just JPGs. They can also be books, articles, short stories, screenplays, musical scores, etc.
Here is its library collection so far, covering multiple topics. It might look like another web page with grid of image thumbnails on it. But what you’re looking at is part of the future of publishing.
After long and careful deliberation, I’ve made a decision about the future of Love Machine. After I finish and mint the remaining NFTs in Shorts #2 (there will be 13 singles in total) I will not mint any more Love Machine collections on Cardano until something is done to streamline and decentralize verification.
When I scrawled the first set of five Love Machine heads, the goal was simply to experiment with brushes and drawing styles to help me figure out how I wanted to draw the collection. When I was finished with a few of them, I thought they were pretty cool and someone might like them.
That was before I knew PFP (profile pic) NFTs were such a popular category of art in this space. Now that I’ve seen how people use them on social media, it makes sense. And I’ve been asked many times when I’ll make more.
It’s recently come to my attention — because I went down one of my rabbit holes — that some CNFTs are being minted with “unknown” policies. This happened with one that I recently minted.
Since I didn’t get to view or edit the policy prior to the minting process, I didn’t know if it locked, or when, or any of its other attributes. So I looked up the asset on pool.pm and and immediately noticed something wasn’t right when I saw the policy icon.
Since my last post about the Tokhun x The Refresh collabaway, the collection of donated CNFTs grew to 60. That’s 60 CNFTs going out today to 60 randomly-chosen people.
AmoebidApes are, according to their creator, “an undiscovered evolutionary branch formed from a direct genetic link between amoebids and apes.”
