Since mid-2021, we’ve been building, connecting, and creating art and technology in and for the NFT/blockchain and fine art spaces. Launching the platform and selling our first artworks in December 2021 was a pivotal point for all the collective members that had been creating tech and creative content in corporate environments for the previous nine years.
Since that launch, we have traveled the world, curating relationships with countless other creators, builders, and artists in the space. All the while, we have also been building technology, iterating and testing it ourselves through our drops as expressions of our creativity and values.
Now, we launch into a new phase, and in that phase, we draw a distinction. There is now ntent, the collective, and ntent.art, the technology.
ntent, simply put, is an artist collective founded by Dr. Benton Banner, jiwa, and Blue Moon. During this year (2022) we have collaborated with more than 75 artists, made speaking appearances on stages across New York, Miami, and Berlin contributed art to multiple group exhibitions, sold out multiple projects, and supported initiatives from Ukraine relief and period poverty support to planting 2,547 trees and offsetting 171,000 kg of carbon, produced by our activities on proof of work blockchains.
ntent collective supports the culture of art. We curate and build collection releases and live art experiences where artists and collectors collaborate to create generative and dynamic art powered by ntent.art’s smart contract technologies.
ntnet’s curated art drops are part of our cultural impact strategy aimed to facilitate collaborative art releases with highly regarded artists through the generative and dynamic infrastructures of our in-house smart contract app.ntent.art.
ntent’s live art experiences are part of our cultural impact strategy aimed at creating immersive experiences utilizing grant and sponsorship funding to implement advanced blockchain integrations supported by our protocol partnerships to test, execute, and expand the ntent.art platform technology stack through art.
We believe love > hate. inclusion > exclusion. diversity > boring sameness. We're about sustainability and equal rights, & we’re cool with everyone. Based in Berlin. Creating art worldwide.
ntent.art is a fine art technology platform that uses blockchain and decentralized technologies to lift up artists, creators, and institutions through a collection of blockchain solutions.
ntent.art is now a player in the fine art technology space and our current technology stack consists of:
A cross-chain, multi-artist, multi-project smart contract platform and white label partnership solution, built on Ethereum, Polygon, and soon to be on Tezos.
Generative art infrastructure
Includes a fully-featured generative art backend for generated-at-mint 1of1ofX art, comparable to Art Blocks Engine. and includes deployment of all assets to the permaweb, currently Arweave and soon to include IPFS.
Dynamic art infrastructure
Includes an expanding backend feature set for dynamic art, used for generating unique dynamic artworks that utilize on and off-chain data, advanced smart contract executables, and external protocols to manipulate art in relative time, parametrically.
Multimedia art infrastructure
Includes a set of tools for ad-hoc deployment of various types of digital art assets, including images, videos, and generative art projects to the permaweb, currently Arweave and soon to include IPFS.
The current version of app.ntent.art has served as a proof of concept with NFT projects of various types deployed, leveraging all of the aforementioned features, scaled video, generative art, collaborations with various file types across Ethereum and Polygon. app.ntent.art holds over 1400 digital artworks from over 50 artists.
ntent.mint is a suite of minting tools and plugins to empower artists, creators, and institutions to fully integrate web3 into their current infrastructure. This allows for the launch, sale, and management of standalone projects through their websites and personal smart contracts.
ntent.io is a generative video platform used to create scalable video collections for the purposes of art, content, and NFT creation. This tech provides artists and galleries with ease of creation, promotion, and sharing of their work. ntent.io handles the creation of token metadata and deployment of all video assets and metadata to the permaweb, currently Arweave, and handles the automated scheduling and posting of video assets to Twitter.

So what does this mean for the ntent.art ecosystem, and holders of n3o v|ta and other ntent.art NFTs?
Overall, expanding our reach, partners, and offerings gives us a greater ability to get more attention, facilitate drops for known artists from which our holders benefit, and build relationships and collaborate with established galleries and artists.
