Monthly Highlights — Ready, Set, Create
From gallery highly anticipated search implementation, Pixeos ARTnerships, to contests both finished and freshly started, check out what’s going on in the Pixeos Gallery ecosystem for June 2020.
The first stage of the partnership roadmap consists of:
- Special discounts for the Pixeos gallery users for acquiring a Canvia Display;
- Integration: Pixeos and Canvia systems will be integrated to assure blockchain provenance to digital displayed artworks;
- Pixeos artists and artworks to be displayed in the Canvia collection;
- Pixeos collectors, with the push of a button, to be able to display on the Canvia frame their Pixeos collection, EXCLUSIVELY.
Canvia’s partnership perfectly aligns with Pixeos vision: the digital art fully authentic, tangible, and truly yours.
Last month, Pixeos concluded two art contests and launched the win a Canvia Frame collectors contest.
Canvia Frame Contest (live until the 4th of August)
As Canvia integration steps are on the way, we have started on the 4th of July an initiative that gives the Pixeos collectors the opportunity to win Canvia Smart Digital Frame.
Everyone who is buying art in the gallery from the 4th of July till the 4th of August is entering the draw!
More artworks mean more chances to win. Details here.
We also held two contests in June with our strategic partners Wombat and Cypherglass:
Wombat’s birthday art contest — the beginning of June we were happy to celebrate and support a good cause. Artists created Wombat themed artworks and three artworks were selected by Wombat to get a prize of 20 EOS each, the winning pieces were placed in the Pixeos secondary market for sale and the proceeds donated to support the Wombat Awareness Organisation.
EOSArtChallenge — Pixeos hosted a contest organized by Cypherglass to celebrate the second anniversary of EOSIO. The winners are announced, and our friends Cypherglass will make necessary arrangements for the winners to get the NFTs designed by Lars Kommienezuspadt soon.
Tech updates: Better gallery organization and search tune-ups.
To improve the gallery experience our tech team has been hard at work to deliver a better platform organization.
The homepage will only show the novelties — from now on it displays 12 last issued NFTs so you won’t miss a thing :)
To enjoy all the artworks presented in the marketplace there is a new Explore section with an advanced search system. Now you can look up the art-pieces by keyword or the pre-setup filters, that can be combined to explore thoroughly the artworks in the gallery. By default, the Explore page shows the pieces according to the gallery activity: publication, bid, resale action, etc.
This month we also had the opportunity to test functionalities that are still to be deployed for the public (SOON):
In the above-mentioned EOSArtChallenge we successfully issued the NFT in 5 editions! The tech team is preparing this important feature to be available for everyone’s usage.
Two talented artists, cechk and iH0DL collaborated in an amazing art piece and with the Pixeos tech team created a first-ever precedent on bringing collaborations to the Pixeos gallery. With that being said the co-authorship system MVP was tested and will soon be launched for all artists. Split sales and royalties for our artists will be soon live for everyone. Big shoutout and much love for the creators of this piece that becomes part of Pixeos Gallery history!
More updates to come.
And now let’s move on to some more talents of our gallery that caught our attention last month!
