The Smartists Experience - in progress
Progressing towards our testable mvp, we are well aware that we need to make it easy for our first users to get into the web3, a whole new world. This is the real challenge, because we are inviting artists-authors to a whole new professional online experience.
We believe in the advantages of recovering the control of your identity, your digital files and your data, but how this is going to work is not always easy to explain. I like to say that, for those authors who are ‘virtualizing their careers’, Smartists provides the means to virtualize their studios.
Therefore, our reference is the real world, where artists in their studios enjoy privacy, can collaborate and receive visitors, and even establish confidential relationships. Moreover they can also make business with their clients… So, what if all this could be possible online with Smartists?
I envision the artist’s experience on Smartists like opening an art-studio in a safe Street, let say in an artists’ neighbourhood… where the art-user, any artist´s client can find a comfortable spot to have a private look and eventually connect with the author.
In our Smartists Discord we are starting interesting conversations in our chats as well as in voice channels.
Smartists is a creator-focused Dapp, designed with artists in mind. We are trying to connect Developers and Artists for the sake of a better future for authors in the next web3. We think developers can have a more accurate information about the real problems artists face on the web, if we start a conversation.
Join our Discord to connect with a community building a dapp for authors made by authors.
These past weeks many news confirmed we have the right approach to address the problems of NFTs and copyrights. Therefore, we are progressing with the design of our licenses as smart contracts with very good vibes.
We are also happy to discover other projects working in the same field. The defense of Intellectual Property on the web is a matter that needs to be discussed. Awareness and education need to be delivered along with the great power that this technology provides to content creators.
Our team members are addressing some of these topics in our Discord: see the channel: NFTs & copyrights.
Moreover, in case you understand Spanish, we also have a basic course on NFTs & copyrights to get started, and get ready for self-management of valuable digital assets like art works. And you can also see the Smartists founders recent presentation at Codemotion Tech Conference-“NFTs con mucho arte… y con licencias de copyrights”.
Remember the quote: “With great power comes great responsibility” Peter Parker, Spiderman.
We have sent our application to the Stacks Accelerator in order to get the support and impulse we need for our next steps.
Mirlo, our nº1 advocate, is also preparing the launch of his own NFTs collectibles to raise funds for those next steps. We will keep you informed!
