Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) became a crypto household name in 2021 and have created room for artists from all over the world to showcase their work and receive the appreciation they so deserve.
As the NFT space continues to develop at a breakneck pace, a new project has emerged to provide users with the experience of a decentralized art museum. What is more, it’s in the metaverse.
Meet Pixlr Genesis
Pixlr Genesis is a new NFT project developed by the popular design and photo editing ecosystems in the world, Pixlr, and the software developer Phosus.
The team intends to create a fully decentralized art museum on the metaverse, rivaling the world’s largest institutions, including the Louvre, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and the National Gallery.
Pixlr Genesis is an ambitious project that aims to connect both artists and art connoisseurs worldwide in the decentralized virtual world called the metaverse.
The project is gathering many artists and art connoisseurs from every part of the world to its ecosystem, which aims to display about 10,000 pieces of exclusive Pixlr NFT artwork in a world-class crowdsourced museum.
2000 NFTs will be released in each phase over five phases to ensure the galleries are refreshed with new curations. Each piece of the Pixlr Genesis NFT is unique and manually signed with a secret attribute, and each phase has different benefits accruing over time.
The art pieces grant holders full access to the art gallery, allowing each user to choose what to display within the museum, how to invest secondary royalty funds, how to participate in fractional bids and where to focus the community’s attention.
Additionally, the Pixlr Genesis NFT serves as a seed for anyone to freely build on for derivative work while also functioning as an extra slot to display any piece of art owned by the same user wallet.
The Pixlr Genesis Ecosystem
The project is building a full set of industry-grade ecosystem tools that are geared towards changing how arts and intellectual properties are marketed on a global scale.
Here are some of the features that make up the Pixlr Genesis ecosystem.
The PIXLR Gallery: This is a decentralized art gallery that provides exclusive access to premium NFT drops, NFT-related tools, and opportunities for artists of all ages to showcase their NFTs and network with fellow art enthusiasts.
The PIXLR Masterpiece: The first batch has already been released at a price of 0.15 ETH each, with the base price expected to increase as the remaining four batches are released.
The PIXLR Mint: The PIXLR Mint is a system that allows members to easily mint the Pixlr Genesis NFTs within the project’s ecosystem to empower art creators from around the world.
The PIXLR Community: This is one of the most valuable aspects of the Pixlr Genesis ecosystem. It builds a tightly knit community of artists and art connoisseurs from across the globe, allowing them to connect, learn, grow, and inspire each other.

How Users Benefit from Pixlr Genesis
The project promises to provide users with several benefits, including
Art Connoisseur: Becoming a part of the Pixlr Genesis ecosystem and purchasing a pass, any of the NFTs, enables members to become a patron of arts within the rapidly growing NFT space, allowing them to play a critical role in nurturing the second Renaissance of art.
Premium Access: Once a user purchases any of the Pixlr Genesis NFT, they are automatically granted exclusive access to all new community airdrops, which they can add to their collections. The first drop has already been actioned via Genart.
Exclusive Tools: All Pixlr Genesis NFT holders will also have access to several exclusive Pixlr tools to create NFT-based experiences and communities.
PIXLR Grants: The project also aims to support new and upcoming artists and creators from around the world to grow the Pixlr Genesis Collection by acquiring new art pieces and building new platforms using 25% of all Pixlr Genesis NFT secondary royalties.
The ART Token
In the future, Pixlr Genesis plans to introduce functionality that will enable all of its NFTs to generate ART, which will serve as the platform’s native utility token and as a governance token that will open up other community benefits.
