What is Async Art?
Async Art is a new art movement built on the blockchain. Create, collect, and trade programmable art: digital paintings split into "Layers", which you can use to affect the overall image.
Art that can evolve over time, react to its owners, or follow a stock price is now all possible with programmable art.
Launched in February 2020, there has already been over $5M in bid volume on the platform and over $1M in artist sales.
How Does It Work?
Async allows you to purchase both Masters and Layers. Think of a Master as a 1/1 edition art piece and Layers are individual components that make up the Master image. Once live, the Master will continually check its Layers and update its appearance based on the Layer owners input.
When you buy a Layer you have exclusive control to affect your favorite artists' work. Layers are endowed with special abilities decided by the artist. When you change something on a Layer the Master image will reflect this regardless of who owns it.
You decide the parameters of your art and grant exclusive control over any aspect to individual collectors. Let someone change the state of the background, the position of a character, or the color of the sky. Art has become programmable, and it’s limited only by your imagination.
