What Is Async Art?

Async Art is a new art movement built on the blockchain. Launched in February 2020, there has already been over $5M in volume on the platform.

Async Art’s transactions hit 99 on 23rd Jan and its volume surged to 72.2K on 25th Jan 2021.



Async allows you to purchase both Masters and Layers, which you can use to affect the overall image. You can think of a Master as a whole edition art piece and Layers are individual components that make up the Master image. Once live, the Master will continually check its Layers and update its appearance based on the Layer owners’ input.



For collectors, when you buy a Layer you have exclusive control to affect your favorite artists' work. Layers are endowed with special abilities decided by the artist. When you change something on a Layer the Master image will reflect this regardless of who owns it.



As artists, you decide the parameters of your art and grant exclusive control over any aspect to individual collectors. You can let someone change the state of the background, the position of a character, or the color of the sky. Art has become programmable, and it’s limited only by your imagination.

This is a featured work named ‘sä-v(ə-)rən-tē by Micah Johnson on Async Art. Async Art aims to bring more artworks like this, which can evolve over time, react to its owners, or follow a stock price, with programmable art.



The Async Art team feels that having art that hangs on your wall is one of the best ways to bring crypto art to a mainstream audience. So they produce the Async Art Gallery App, which is completely free and available for download now on 4th gen and later Apple TVs. It utilizes one of the best displays that most folks already own: a TV screen.

Now that it’s easy to display and show off your NFT collections, you won’t feel crypto art too far away from your normal life, right?
