A scalable NFT Art Project by Indorse

“A scalable NFT Art Project” is all about encouraging bright minds to come up with projects that will focus on creating scalable digital artworks. You can find inspiration in the most popular NFT projects that have managed to generate scalable digital artworks: CryptoPunks, Hashmasks, Meebits, BAYC.

To achieve a scalable artwork project, you will ideally be using generative, procedural or similar scaling methodologies. The basic concept underlying all these famous NFT collections is the use of computation to generate a huge number of unique pieces. One of the most famous ones, the CryptoPunk collection, came up with 10,000 uniquely generated characters - where each NFT was unique based on different traits or attributes!

In this track, you will have to put together a project that will create a similar number of NFTs without sacrificing the uniqueness of each NFT. Uniqueness can be achieved by modifying some traits of your main design. Unique traits can be the face, head, body of the NFT or the color, item, background, etc. The uniquely generated NFTs will be a combination of the traits you decide to include in your scalable NFT project.
Some tips and tricks 💡💡💡
  • Look at how some of the most successful NFT projects were created and what traits were used: Avastars, Art Blocks, CryptoPunks, Hashmasks, Meebits, BAYC.
  • How will you design the original NFT and then all the different traits to create a scalable collection with unique NFTs?
  • What story will accompany your scalable NFT art project? The community loves cool stories or stories that will make your collection even more attractive.
  • Once you have your design, all the traits/attributes, and know how you will generate your big collection, is there anything else you would like to include? Hashmasks, for example, allowed each buyer to name their newly acquired hashmask.
  • In your ‘Deck for A scalable NFT Art Project’, make sure to put extra focus on:
    • Why & how is your project scalable?
    • What is the core design and the traits/attributes of your collection?
    • Do you have a narrative/story around the collection?
    • Why is your project innovative and different from what has been done before?
