What Is Genart (GENART)?
A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) is an entity with no central leadership. Genart Decisions get made from the bottom-up, governed by a community organized around a specific set of rules enforced on a blockchain. DAOs are internet-native organizations collectively owned and managed by their members. They have built-in treasuries that are only accessible with the approval of their members. Decisions are made via proposals the group votes on during a specified period.
Tweaks provide a way to modify input variables with a UI pane. Before you can use it, you have to define your tweaks object in the tweaks.json file. The GEN.ART DAO allows members to contribute to the platform by proposing ideas and get an actual voice by voting on them. A minimum amount of 20k $GENART token required to make a proposal.

What is generative art?
Generative art refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an autonomous system. An autonomous system in this context is generally one that is non-human and can independently determine features of an artwork that would otherwise require decisions made directly by the artist. In some cases the human creator may claim that the generative system represents their own artistic idea, and in others that the system takes on the role of the creator.
How does generative art on the blockchain work?
Blockchain gives Genart the ability to control ownership of art pieces. Additionally with cryptography we can generate unique identifiers or a “hash” to guarantee that each piece of art differs from each other. The blockchain holds all required information to generate the art from the given hash. Theoretically, any 3rd party is able to download the art script from the blockchain and re-generate the art script from the hash.
Since Genart upload the script to the blockchain they will have to pay gas for the transaction. As you might know transferring huge amount of data in a Ethereum transaction can be pretty expensive and depends a lot on the Ethereum network conditions. To save gas fees the script should be clean and minified. Make sure to remove unused variables and unnecessary console logs.GEN.ART covers the gas costs for the script upload upfront and will claim them after release regardless of the outcome of sales.
The script should be a single file html that contains all the java script and dependencies. It should also expect a global variable has that is passed to a PRNG to create the generative randomness. On production that hash will be passed to the script once the NFT is minted on the blockchain. Your serves will take care of this handling.
If your script doesn’t use the no loop function or your art is animated in any other way you have to provide a separate script that can be used to generate an image of the art pieces. Genart One way to achieved this is by representing the drawing by a state variable (usually a 2D array of RGBA values) and mutate on iteration. However, you might need to use a different approach since it depends a lot on your script.
Once your art has completed rendering or it’s time to take a snapshot you should send a message to the top frame. This is helpful for Genart to improve UX when downloading high resolution images from our website. Make sure to test your script on different devices, screen sizes and browsers.
