Squiggle DAO

Squiggle DAO

We will achieve this by using one of the most historically significant art series, Chromie Squiggles, as membership to the DAO.

Wait, what?  Generative Art?  DAOs?  Squiggles? I’m lost

OK, a step back.  In the beginning we had NFTS.  These NFTs had a hash held on-chain which represented an image which was held off-chain.  If this off-chain metadata (the info that allows an image to be generated) ever got lost/corrupted, the image could never be rendered from the hash.  A few early visionaries recognised this issue and began experimenting with fully on-chain Generative Art.  Fully on-chain art has all the associated metadata (not just a hash representation) held on the Blockchain so the resulting image can always be reverse engineered.  As long as Ethereum exists, so does your image.  No NFT Rug pulls here. 

OK, so on-Chain good, off-Chain bad.  But what is Artblocks?

Art Blocks is a first of its kind platform focused on genuinely programmable on-demand generative content that is stored immutably on the Ethereum Blockchain. You pick a style that you like, pay for the work, and a randomly generated version of the content is created by an algorithm and magically sent to your Ethereum wallet. The resulting piece might be a static image, 3D model, or an interactive experience.   

Interesting. I think I’m getting it, but how do Squiggles fit into this?

Chromie Squiggles were first project that dropped on the Art Blocks platform in late 2020. Both Art Blocks and Squiggles were created by Snowfro, a Punk OG and all round legend. There are only 10,000 Squiggles that can ever be minted with around 9,100 that are currently in existence (The remaining 900ish are being reserved for individuals who help further the goals of the Artblocks). Each Squiggle is unique and has different traits, with Hypers being the rarest/most sought after.

I think I’m up to speed - Tell me more about SquiggleDAO

SquiggleDAO acts as a foundry for artists that want to create awesome art. We’ll source, support, fund, and launch anyone that the DAO selects as an amazing generative NFT artist. Together, we will etch on-chain generative art into the history books.

SquiggleDAO will act as a place for on-chain generative art education, driving awareness of Squiggles and generative art more broadly through challenges, financing new works, and community.

The early Punks owners built an amazing community that was incredibly welcoming, helpful, and most importantly fun. Snowfro was one of those members that was instrumental in building this community.  That same ethos can be seen in the Artblocks discord and is one we are embracing in SquiggleDAO.  We are a friendly, helpful community of Squiggle fans with a passion for Gen Art…….and a Social token launching “soon”.

But where is this all heading?

Art and culture are two sides of the same coin. History has shown that artists who capture mindshare during important culture epochs ultimately end up defining that time period. We believe we are in the early stages of a new cultural epoch, and that the art of this time period will be stored on the Ethereum blockchain. With SquiggleDAO, anyone has an opportunity to be part of this history. Thought provoking stuff.

 Tasty Squiggle Stats

  • Squiggles could originally be minted for 0.035ETH
  • Current Squiggle Floor Price on opensea is 0.375ETH
  • Highest Squiggle Sale was 45ETH for a Hyper Bold 3 weeks ago
  • The rarest Squiggle (a Hyper Pipe) has never traded
  • Almost 200 verified Squiggle owners have already joined the SquiggleDAO discord

Anyone can join the public SquiggleDAO Discord here

However, to access the Squiggle Gate and be amongst verified Squiggle Owners you must hold a Squiggle of any type in your wallet (details below if you don’t own one).  Just type “!join” in the #squiggle-gate channel and the CollabLand bot will work it’s magic to get you through.  It’s that simple.  

And being an early discord member is likely to be advantageous…
