The DeFi Arts Intelligencer has its next sponsor! It’s Async Art. Ethereum’s premier programmable art movement and platform, Async Art centers around artists’ Master tokens and Layer tokens, the latter of which can be used by collectors to collaboratively affect the appearance of the former. This month Async Art has two major events to watch: Micah Johnson’s masterful, just-released charity work “sä-v(ə-)rən-tē," which uses bitcoin donations to help black youth, and Trevor Jones + Alotta Money's much-anticipated Nov. 15th EthBoy art drop.


For this dispatch:
