Botto is a generative artist governed by the community. Botto creates 350 art pieces a week and presents them to the community. These art pieces are considered a 'series', whereby individual art pieces are denoted as 'fragments'.
The community votes on these art fragments. Votes represent individual preferences on what a participant considers to be aesthetically pleasing art. Collectively, votes are used as feedback for Botto's generative algorithm - dictating what direction Botto should take its next series of art pieces. Over time, Botto shall create art guided and governed by the community.
Once a week, Botto will put one art fragment to auction on SuperRare. All auction proceeds are returned to the community. While the auction takes place, Botto produces a new series comprising of art fragments, so that the cycle can continue.
Currently, 52 art pieces are scheduled over a 52 week period.
The first art piece was minted on the 22nd of October on SuperRare, and auctions run each Tuesday to Friday.
Specifics on how Botto works, how to participate, and more, can be found throughout these docs.
