Art Blocks is a premier curation platform for generative art on the Ethereum blockchain.
While participating in drops on the Art Blocks platform, users mint unique, random iterations of each project, effectively creating their own 1/1 with each mint.
Launched in 2020, Art Blocks has three separate tiers of projects: Curated, Playground, and Factory.
Featuring projects like Fidenzas by Tyler Hobbs and Ringers by Dimitri Cherniak, Art Blocks Curated only accepts collections from artists that have been formally accepted via the Art Blocks' team. These collections are selected as the best representation of the Art Blocks’ vision and typically come with a higher entry point.
Art Blocks Playground is a place for artists that have been formally accepted into the Art Blocks Curated collection to deploy a project of their own. Playground projects do not receive official endorsement by Art Blocks and they are not curated. Artists participating in Playground drops must have officially dropped a curated project prior.
The final tier, Art Blocks Factory, is a place for any artist to submit their generative art projects without waiting for formal acceptance into Art Blocks Curated. Despite the lower restrictions for entry, these projects are intended to reflect the innovation and creativity of the Art Blocks community.
