A PoP is a NFT token or credential which is awarded to fans, audiences, crowds, and day 1โ€™ers who โ€œcheck-inโ€ at any art installation, augmented reality sculpture, concert, or mural on the Illustrative Space browser application. PoP token receivers will be able to redeem their tokens for access into gated events, exclusive communities, NFT airdrops from their favorite artists, and many more. A PoP can be seen as a location based digital ticket which is stored as a proof on Polygon, an environmentally sustainable L2 blockchain. As a part of the launch, Mint Gold Dust and curatorial partner Searchlight present ๐˜›๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜บ, an AR NFT Art Walk along Austinโ€™s Lady Bird Lake and surrounding city hotspots. The artists in the drop were invited to create work inspired by tributaries, a river or stream that flows into a larger body of water. The theme serves as a larger metaphor for local responsibility leading to impact on a global scale. The pieces will be visible to the public beginning March 11th. View the collection below.
