Artists load visual elements on Cryptographics Dapp, where users can turn them into original works.
Decentralized start-up of technology in Serbia Decenter recently released Cryptographics, a fully functional Dapp on the Ethereum network to generate art works called "cryptographics" based on asset packs (collections of visual elements such as images and symbols). The Decenter team said the Dapp "represents a fusion of cryptography, Web 3.0 and digital art inspired by the dada avant-garde movement".
The process of artistic creation is simple: individuals choose which asset packs they want to use to create their cryptographics. From there, a "random composition process" generates the artwork, which users can keep forever on the blockchain as ERC721 token or sell in Cryptographics Gallery, which is a sort of marketplace for individuals to buy and sell cryptographics.
Asset packages are designed and uploaded by visual artists, such as illustrators, photographers and graphic designers. These collections contain up to 50 different elements, with at least one background graphic. Artists receive Ether whenever someone creates an encryption using their asset packages.
Most of Dapp's key the features require the MetaMask extension, although the team noted that "they did everything to allow users to get the feel of Cryptographics even if they do not have MetaMask or ETH." Furthermore, interested persons can access the open source code of Dapp via GitHub.
With the launch of Cryptographics, there is a little more of artistic love to get around in the cryptospace.
