MUSE0 is a DAO created by an Alien and run by artists and curators. Today, NFTs often float aimlessly across the Internet, lost in a sea of tweets or trapped on commercial platforms and marketplaces. There is a lack of institutions built to cultivate, gather, and enshrine NFTs so that they have a more permanent home.
MUSE0 will reflect the ethos imbued by Cryptopunks. It is flat, participatory, and more expansive than earlier art institutions. It will not be run by a small group of experts, but rather by artists and collectors that have laid down the foundation for the growing and expanding NFT movement.
What Will The Roll Out For MUSE0 Look Like? The roll out for MUSE0 is intended to be thoughtful in its approach. The aim, as mentioned elsewhere, is to collect and curate a permanent collection of NFTs representing artists and ideas from all over.
In order to do so, the initial roll out will be focused on onboarding a group of artists from different breadths of the NFT space, whether that be artists and/or collectors based in the crypto-native art scene or those based in digital art, net art, generative art, or collectibles, and more.
MUSE0 aims to give a voice to those often neglected by the art world, due to the color of their skin, their nationality, or their sexual preference. In MUSE0, these underrepresented artists can help select and curate the new generation of great works, helping to reimagine the increasingly ossified institutions of the industrial age and presenting to the world a more comprehensive vision of the future. With all of us together, MUSE0 hopes to not only reimagine the means of creating digital works, but also the very manner in which these works are stored, displayed, and preserved.
MUSE0 is pure in focus—centered on community, support, and charity—and not on monetization. It will collect NFTs, but not sell them. Not only will MUSE0 have a presence in the digital world and in various metaverses, but hopefully over time it will create a physical presence too.
how to join
At this time, the primary way to join MUSE0 is to donate a work to the DAO. Other members of MUSE0 will include members of Flamingo DAO and the technical partner behind MUSE0, OpenLaw. They built the initial Dapp and the underlying smart contract framework for MUSE0.
