✍️ Introducing typed.art, The New Shiny Toy On Tezos

Find out more about the newest text-based marketplace and some of my favorite NFTs until now...

If you have been paying attention to the Tezos world during the past few days, you probably have seen many artists sharing their “typed art.” The reason is a new marketplace called Typed.art that lets you mint using only characters and texts with a 10k characters limit.

More than 4k NFTs were minted in less than five days, so the platform is closing on 1k mints per day.

Typed Art has taken the Tezos blockchain by storm.

So far, I have seen different kinds of works, from ASCII-based images to poems, stories, lyrics, and the popular “shit posts.” Here are some of my favorites until now…

  • Leander Herzog sold a couple of his Aglo’s for 100 Tezos.

  • There is also room for simple written form too. Mister Reborn created a “GM, rap”, which I found very funny.

  • Philip Bell shared what he has been collecting. Outstanding works from established artists that are doing all kinds of experiments. For example, Yazid created an algorithm that uses Markov Chains…

It seems like the minimalistic design and the low minting/collecting costs are driving the adoption. This marketplace has tremendous potential, especially if future features like categories, history of purchases, and discovery capabilities are integrated at some point.

I’m particularly interested in the possibility of minting texts (this could evolve into essays, books, scripts, poems) that haven’t found a notorious home in Web 3 yet.

Until next time,
