- Creators like you are a large part of what makes today’s internet valuable and you are the most important ingredient in its evolution going forward.
- As creators, artists, musicians, etc., you deserve to capture more of the immense value you create for society.
- Web 3 is a massive paradigm shift that provides you the tools to thrive as a creator in ways that are truly authentic to you and your communities, audiences, fans, etc.
- The metaverse or ‘Web 3’ is a blank canvas that will be designed by the artists and creators embracing these technologies today.
Mintery Program Pillars:
- Artist-led and artist-first: There are plenty of programs for startups, technologists, and the like, but The Mintery will stay firmly rooted in artist sensibilities and in serving the needs of creators.
- Conscious: The Mintery will lean into projects that have a social good component. We want to encourage creators that are trying to generate more than a quick buck. Further, as we’re building on Stacks, we will not create additional environmental impact with our collections.
- Additive over Extractive: Our program teaches creators that NFTs are not about extracting value from an audience, but further building community and bringing about new ways of engaging with each other.
- Collaborative: Between program leads, mentors, and all the creators in the cohort, collaboration is inevitable and by design. We also take this a step further by supporting creators that may be coming from other networks, embracing multi-chain projects, and facilitating key partnerships for each creator.
- Experimental and Flexible: Each artist will have a different vision and different needs. The program embraces this in its design and encourages experimentation. We will never simply push a templated approach on your concept.
