SteemPixels.com - The World's First Blockchain Powered Decentralized Collaborative Pixel Canvas
@boxxa and @adept are proud to present the world's first blockchain powered decentralized collaborative pixel canvas.
To clear up any confusion, it costs nothing to participate. Setting pixels is completely free. Buying pixels is completely optional!
What is a collaborative pixel canvas?
SteemPixels.com is a 1000x1000 pixel image ( 1 million total pixels ) where users set the color of a chosen pixel every 20 seconds. Specially formatted comments are left on this post and parsed to build the whole image. Additionally users have the option to buy a pixel for 1 SBD and ensure nobody else is allowed to change it. The canvas updates in realtime and will evolve organically as individuals and groups draw on it. The idea was inspired by Reddit's 2017 April Fool's social experiment called /r/place. To glimpse the awesome potential of SteemPixels.com take a few minutes to watch the time-lapse video of the /r/place pixel canvas.
Anyone with a Steemit account can login and instantly start collaborating with others across the world and express their creative vision pixel by pixel.
Here's a step by step guide on how to join in!
- Go to SteemPixels.com
- Click the Login button in the upper right corner to login securely with SteeemConnect using your private posting key.
- Choose a color from the palette on the left.
- Click a pixel of your choice! You may zoom in using the magnifying glass buttons on the right or with your mouse wheel.
- A popup will appear with a few options. You have the option to attach a message (or link URL) with the pixel and here is where you make the choice of buying the pixel for 1 SBD or just changing it's color. ( Note: anyone else can change the pixel when you choose the Post Comment option. )
- You may place a pixel every 20 seconds. If you enabled notifications on SteemPixels.com you will be alerted when you can place your next pixel!
How will SteemPixels.com help minnows get noticed?
The pixel canvas acts as a sort of visual Trending page where everyone has an equal chance of getting noticed. All it takes is the patience to draw something eye catching!
What's special about buying and owning pixels?
When you pay 1 SBD to buy a pixel you are given the exclusive right to change it, upate it's color and message or transfer it to another user. Pixels can be thought of as a non-fungible asset or virtual real estate. We expect pixel exchanges to popup as the community realizes the value potential that comes with owning them.
