When it comes to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), whether you’re a complete beginner or an expert NFT archaeologist in the making, there are enough new projects being created, dropped, dug up, and/or hyped on the daily to satisfy, well, just about everybody’s tastes.
As someone who’s still busy trying to learn everything about this incredible new space himself, I find the historical element of a lot of these pre-2021 projects particularly fascinating. In many ways, these individuals were pioneers of the early NFT space, testing the capabilities of minting art on the blockchain.
If you’re a fan like I am of collecting NFT projects that come with a little historical significance, I’d like to help introduce you to one today. I present to you a little (as in 8x8 pixel tiny!) project that began back in 2018 called PixelCons. Here’s the official bio from OpenSea:
“PixelCons are collectible NFTs featuring minimalist pixel art. 8x8 and only 16 colors, each PixelCon is unique and all its data fits in the size of a hash. This open platform was started in 2018 to allow any artist to easily make digital collectibles within a shared ecosystem.”
