Aysnc Art Will Shutter Operations
Async Art announced its decision to cease operations, although its NFTs will remain on-chain and accessible.
- Async Art's market platform will not support purchases by the end of 2023.
- New submissions have been halted, starting today.
- The team hopes to introduce a simplified viewer for dynamic Async NFTs in the near future.
- The platform gained prominence with the XCOPY Grifters collection drop.
Async Art made the difficult decision to wind down its operations over the next few months. However, this does not spell the end for the art pieces. All Async NFTs are pinned on IPFS and will stay on-chain, ensuring the art's longevity.
The company informed that Async.Market will cease to support purchases by the conclusion of 2023, and Async.art will no longer accept new artwork submissions starting immediately. Considering that the uniqueness of Async pieces lies in their dynamic nature, which necessitates a front-end website and user interface, the team is putting efforts into launching a streamlined viewer in the upcoming months.
The end of Async Art's operational journey isn't synonymous with the end of the dynamic and generative art movement. The company expressed its optimism that the movement will persist, powered by the enthusiasm of web3 builders and creators.
❗Why It Matters
Async Art's decision to wind down indicates the challenges and rapid evolution within the NFT and digital art space, particular as market dynamics have been unfavorable and royalties and platform fees are under scrutiny.
