What is a TwelveFold collection?
TwelveFold NFT is a limited-edition experimental collection of 300 generative artworks recorded in Satoshi on the Bitcoin blockchain. This is a completed art project and will not have any other utility, will not interact with, or be associated with any Yuga Labs Ethereum-based projects.
The collection includes well-rendered 3D elements as well as hand-drawn elements that serve as a tribute to the conventional lettering currently done by hand. The generative parts were created by the Yuga Labs art team using 3D modeling, algorithmic building, and high-end rendering tools.
When and how will the TwelveFold NFT collection be released?
According to the Yuga Labs team, the entire TwelveFold collection will be auctioned off later this week. All bets will be made in bitcoins. There will be a 24 hour notice with auction details and the exact time. So far there is no more detailed information.
The release of a generative art collection from Yuga Labs is an unexpected event. Previously, the studio specialized only in projects that contain signs of games, quests and other entertaining elements. The move from market leader Yuga Labs signals the adoption of the new Bitcoin blockchain technology, which now has the ability to create NFTs. Considering that the creator of BAYC never creates meaningless projects and is the undisputed leader of opinions, all market participants should take into account such a scaling of the Bitcoin network.
