The DeFi Arts Intelligencer has its next sponsor! Itโ€™s Async Art. Ethereumโ€™s premier programmable art movement and platform, Async Art centers around artistsโ€™ Master tokens and Layer tokens, the latter of which can be used by collectors to collaboratively affect the appearance of the former. This month alone, Async Art artists have collectively fetched hundreds of ETH at auctions โ€” itโ€™s a major platform to watch going forward accordingly!
