    You can draw


    You have to pay to place a pixel...

    Not sure why I'd pay $1.30 to place a pixel.... Please explain the thought process behind this.

    Michael Nease has never used this product.

Yeah...but why? lol

@phillipprado I think it's interesting to use Ethereum's blockchain for purposes other than tracking assets, tokens, currencies, etc. This is an attempt to explore that idea. Also, a problem that arose with Reddit's r/Place, which this is heavily influenced by, is botting. Ethereum's gas fee makes abuse by bots expensive for attackers.

@capable_monkey Ok that's actually pretty cool. I admire that

Thanks for hunting @capable_monkey please tell us more about this project; why did you start working on it? What are your future plans for it? Thanks
Gordon ZhengMaker@capable_monkey
@abadesi This is intended to be an example of how the Ethereum blockchain can be used to facilitate creativity and expression. Ethereum doesn’t have to only be about ICOs and the ownership of virtual assets.

What do users get from this? :)
Gordon ZhengMaker@capable_monkey
@kydyzyx they get to participate in a global piece of art! Each and every change is stored on the blockchain, which means the history of this ever-changing painting cannot be edited or censored. When you set a pixel, your change is published to the decentralized Ethereum network and eventually stored on thousands of computers around the world where it will remain forever.
