Season 3 Is Live! Everything you need to know about RareCandy3D wrapped up in a post!
🔫Sub-machine-gun-speed-wrapper: Season 2 concluded in parallel to April with a code-art album by Warsaw-based indie game dev Michal “Rostok” Roctoski, entitled “Soon” (RC3-B7). If there would be some key things that marks the end of S2, while signaling the beggining of a renewed RareCandy3D season, that would be:
Michal Rostocki, alias: Rostok, is RareCandy3D’s first code artist with whom we are very excited to collaborate on his first NFT release. The publication, entitled “Soon”, consists of 5 different tweetcarts that share similar colors and style. For those who do not know, tweetcarts are PICO-8 doodles that fit into a single tweet. That means that each of these pieces is not longer than 280 chars (bytes).
As he expressed to RC3, the Warsawian-born video game designer has been experimenting with code since he got his first computer as a child during the 80s. More so, he defines his style…
NFTs are on the right track towards achieving mainstream adoption — and for good reasons. Previous advancements in DeFi and stablecoins, growing interest from investors, and, of course, massive interest from artists, designers, creators, and collectors.
What makes NFTs attractive is, undoubtedly, their collection of native properties: proof of authenticity, ownership, and uniqueness of assets that are accessible in a verifiable, transparent, and immutable manner. Therefore, NFT use-cases can be tailored to accommodate the needs of individuals with different professions, expertise, goals, and aspirations.
In this article, we’ll briefly go through the correlates of tokenization, as well as highlight its…
As the NFT scene is undergoing a phase of mainstream adoption, there are currently more newcomers than ever willing to join this digital collectible revolution. Although many NFT beginners might be familiar with basic terminology and definitions, the present article is meant to address those seeking a more detailed and thorough examination of the amazing world of non-fungible products.
Here, we provide the reader with educated definitions and background information, while we explore current and potential use-cases, discuss NFT novelties, and speculate on what the future is holding for us all NFT enthusiasts. Let’s get started.
Before jumping right into…
Vasiliy Oleshko aka Sibesky is almost a synonym to the RareCandy3D stamp itself. The St. Petersburg-based visual artist was first introduced to us in February 2020, by Christos Belechris, an early RC3 scout who was digging Behance, and Pinterest aiming to fish for gems no-one would have noticed so far in what at that time was a pact, embryonic NFT scene.
Not only Sibesky set our tone with the launching release of the RareCandy3D house but he since then has released three (3) more albums, with the latest one, entitled ‘Dusk’, published last week on 19/03/2021.
According to Moore’s law (1965), the rate at which our technology is growing is adhering to an exponential curve, with our computers being twice as fast every two years, while the production costs are halving. Even if, nowadays, there are good reasons to doubt the predictive validity of this very notion, the last three decades have empirically proved it rather right. Already it seems a very old memory when the new 1,44MB floppy discs came out or when they got replaced by the pioneering CDs and DVDs. I mean the Internet, as we know it, exists since the early 90s.
The last few years have seen a bunch of data scandals, a fuzz around data protection policies, and the emergence of the trend of web decentralization. Although not ripe yet, Web 3.0 is already promising to revolutionize our digital culture while maintaining the ethics of the original web, where autonomy and expression are separated from commercial interest.
In this article, we will talk about the roots of the web, pinpoint the reasons for a necessary alternative, and unpack some principles of the decentralized web.
Post-WW2 era saw the invention of the computer, understood in its modern sense as a programmable…
Back in 2017, the Ethereum community accepted an Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP), i.e. the Ethereum Request for Comment 721 (ERC-721), which was simply a proposal for a protocol motivated by the need for a fungibility-based distinction of tokens.
By means of this protocol, a standard interface for non-fungible tokens got established. That is, unlike ERC-20 tokens which are all fungible with each other, ERC-721 tokens are unique, and thus, each asset they represent is distinct respectively.
The deal is that a non-fungible token is usually a unique single edition or limited edition token, that holds additional data and/or media, and…
