Stake $MEME to earn exclusive NFTs from Spongenuity
Next up in the $MEME Artist Series, we’re featuring the works of Spongenuity. He’s a self-taught software engineer and artist from London that uses a merge of both skills to create algorithmically generated portraits.
⏰ Dropping Tuesday December 1, 2020 at 13:37 EST.
Spongenuity has created 4 new exclusive NFTs in the $MEME collab.
Three pieces will go into a pool where you can stake $MEME. Deposit any amount up to 5 tokens and you’ll earn points where can mint a brand-new, exclusive MEME x SPONGE NFT.
Also, one final piece is up for auction. 80% will go to the artist, 10% to the MEME dev fund, and 10% to charity. Spongenuity has selected Goodwill Caravan as the recipient of the charity proceeds.
Note: Like the previous artist drop, to ensure support for the artists, we have enabled minting fees to some of the items in the staking pool. Minting fees are denominated in ETH and taken at time of NFT minting.
$MEME Artist Series 5
About the artist:
I like to explore the visual spectrum through generative randomness and experimentation.
Starting Tuesday, $MEME holders can begin to stake and start mining these rare NFTs. The Spongenuity pool is a brand new pool. No LP tokens are needed.
Meet the Artist
Jordan Lyall caught up with Jake to ask what attracted him to a collaboration with $MEME:
Jordan: What first got you into NFT art?
Spongenuity: I’ve been making digital/ generative art for a few years and I started to see and hear about the growth of cryptoart and NFT’s, given that my medium was digital, it just made sense to try and step in and see where it goes. So far, it’s been pretty awesome.
Jordan: How did you initially hear about $MEME?
Spongenuity: I first heard about $MEME from Jordan’s interview with Jamie of Outlier Ventures, it sounded like a really interesting experiment and had a really fun energy to it, so I was really excited to be a part of it!
Jordan: What do you find interesting about what the $MEME project is doing?
Spongenuity: Creating a cohesive, leveled community, the idea of farming NFTs levels the playing field, which is a really interesting concept to say the least.
Jordan: What else excites you about NFTs and/or DeFi?
Spongenuity: Deepening the idea of ownership and being able to participate in something that has the potential to really change the world.
Jordan: Where will NFT art be in 3 years?
Spongenuity: I think it will be the norm and a cohesive part of the art world. It’s growing so fast at the moment, so it could also have the potential to set it’s own pace too
Jordan: What’s next for you as a digital artist?
Spongenuity: In all honesty, I never really know, but I’m constantly furthering my skill set and experimenting. I have a few new concepts on the way, so I’m excited to see where they go!
