It’s not every day that the boundaries of art can be pushed to new heights. Today, we’re excited to announce that Origin has partnered with Trevor Jones, Don Diablo, and Alotta Money to bring NFT fans the precedent-setting ΞTHΞRΞAL collection, commemorating the 6-year anniversary of the Ethereum network launch (July 30, 2015). It’s the first time the three masters of their respective domains have come together to create a truly unique and living artistic experience.
This drop also showcases a new innovation with the economics of NFT sales. ΞTHΞRΞAL is the first of ten chapters that will be programmatically generated in the EthBoy journey. The purchaser of ΞTHΞRΞAL will receive significant revenue share from the next nine NFTs in the EthBoy story. This makes the first chapter not only unique and timeless but also a representative of future stakes in the work of Trevor Jones, Alotta Money, and other guest artists.
ΞTHΞRΞAL brings together the best of NFTs, traditional fine art, programmatic art, music, and even augmented reality for the 1 of 1 collection. The auction begins on August 5, 2021 at 11:30PM UTC and will run for 48 hours.
Last year, Trevor Jones and Alotta Money collaborated to produce EthBoy, a programmatic piece that evolves over time based on ETH/BTC prices, gas prices, and other external variables. This was sold to renowned collector and curator, MaxStealth, as the precursor to the 10 chapter EthBoy story.
EthBoy is a 5-year project broken into 10 chapters. Every 6 months, a new chapter will be released that captures the living, breathing art that is EthBoy. Each piece will be unique and dynamically generated from the previously written code, capturing real-time reactions to the cryptocurrency market and including current events easter eggs.
Chapter 1: ΞTHΞRΞAL
Today, ΞTHΞRΞAL marks the first chapter of the EthBoy journey. The 1 of 1 NFT tells the story of EthBoy’s journey from last year’s inception through June 30, 2021, and captures programmatically and dynamically changing scenes chronicling Ethereum price and gas movements as well as current events. The NFT features guest appearances from Elon Musk, the late John McAfee, and multiple Crypto Punks.
