Matt Chessco's most ambitious art project to date. Something never-before-seen in the NFT ecosystem.
This is the third artwork of the "Pop Art Wonders" series.
Matt will create up to 383 physical paintings that will become the frames of a short video animation titled "Crystals". The 383 frames of the video animation will be turned into NFTs that you can mint for free (+ gas fees).
The mint will start on December 26th, 2023 at 12:30pm EST and will end on January 5th, 2024 at 12pm EST.
To be eligible for the mint, you will need to own 1 Pop Art Cat, 1 Pop Art Wonder #1 and 1 Pop Art Wonder #2 in your wallet at the moment of the snapshot. The snapshot will be taken on December 26th, 2023 at 12pm EST.
Once the mint is over, Matt will proceed to create the paintings and the animation. This will take months.
The images of the NFTs will be revealed in 2024. You will also be able to claim the physical paintings associated with your NFTs.
Who is eligible for the mint?
You will need 1 Pop Art Cat + 1 Pop Art Wonder #1 + 1 Pop Art Wonder #2 to mint 1 NFT. You will need 2 Pop Art Cats + 2 Pop Art Wonders #1 + 2 Pop Art Wonders #2 to mint 2 NFTs. And so on. They will need to be in the same wallet at the moment of the snapshot.
When is the snapshot?
The snapshot will be taken on December 26th, 2023 at 12pm EST. The mint will start about 30 minutes after.

We suggest that you track the gas fees in real time here and that you mint when they are at their lowest. Gas fees are usually at their lowest between 12am EST and 4am EST.

Do I receive the derivatives rights of the NFT?
You are free to use the specific NFT image that you own for commercial purposes up to $50,000 per year. Above that we ask to enter into a more formal licensing agreement. Check the terms of license for more info.
Can I only mint a few NFTs instead of the maximum I'm eligible for?
You can only mint the maximum NFTs you are eligible for using our minting platform. If you really want to mint less, you can open a ticket on Discord using the channel called "help-ticket". The gas fees are similar whether you mint only a few NFTs or several ones. We highly recommend you mint everything you are eligible for.
