Things You Might Have Missed
Sistine Chapel Movie Premiere
The Underground Sistine Chapel is a documentary telling the story of the street artist Pascal Boyart's @pascalboyart construction of a modern Sistine Chapel. The project is 100% crypto funded, and available worldwide for free on YouTube.
The movie premiered last Monday, alongside a series of NFT collectibles (including rare cards and souvenir tickets) that are available to purchase on the Minty platform here.
This week, our pool of curated artists has expanded with the likes of Akkrin @AkkrinCA, Limbo Mask @Limbo_mask, and Andrei Riabovitchev @Riabovitchev joining the Minty platform. We are excited to have these talented individuals create incredible pieces for their fans and patrons. To see our full lineup of artists, visit the creators page here.
Stay tuned for more artists to be announced in the coming weeks!
Near-Zero Gas Fees
With the gas fees of the Ethereum main network becoming a headache for most users, we are delighted to announce that Minty is a near-zero gas fee platform. Thanks to the deployment on the Polygon network, the gas fees for processing transactions are almost non-existent.
Polygon has its own native token (known as MATIC), its main purpose is to power the protocol via a gas-based mechanism. Just one MATIC token is enough for most users to get started using the Minty platform.
To see more information about Polygon, and how to get started using the network, visit our video guide here.
