Hic Et Nunc I need it. Here and now!
This weekend I had a blast with this project called OBJEKT4OBJEKT in which artists were encouraged to mint their OBJKTs for free in order to swap with other artists and build a more diverse collection. I had already read some tweets about Hic Et Nunc, they were not really positive about the cosmetics and the speed so I was never really bothered. I thought one of the many new NFT platforms. But then I read about this free art projekt and it grabbed me right away.
Is it coincidence that I just learned that we all are looking for free rides. That it is some kind of default craving of humans. So thank god I have nothing to be ashamed of And also I am not the only one. Pffffffff!
Hic Et Nunc means Here and now in Latin and it’s a dapp on the Tezos Blockchain. The gas and minting fees are very low which opens all kind of possibilities.
So I got me some XTZ and started grabbing free art. But first I contributed a piece of myself.
152 where grabbed. By 104 different Tezos addresses. 10 was the highest amount grabbed by one address. Now they are on sale for 0.1 XTZ.
186 different objekts from 176 different artists.
I made a spreadsheet with some data. Like prize they are going for now. If I could sell all pieces now for those prizes I would have around 8200 XTZ. And that’s wow. I spend like 6 XTZ on gas fees to collect these. Like 30 euros. Mind Blowing…
And yes I am guilty! When started collecting I wanted more more MORE! Also the blockchain did have some hick ups. So totally by mistake I grabbed more then 1 piece of some pieces several times One piece 3 times…
Big thank you to all the artists I grabbed free art from!
Special thanks to @ancientfroggy who bought my first non free piece for 5 XTZ I could grab more free art! Grateful for that froggy!
My first thoughts about the platform itself
It looks basic but has a certain back to basics feeling to it. Minimalistic not too many options. I like that. It’s a bit slow and I get a lot of errors when I want to swap (offering in terms of HEN(Hic Et Nunc)) an objekt. It is slow overall. The loading takes a lot of time. Now I realize how stable the hive blockchain is because I am having some troubles minting on the tezos blockchain.
Still some free art available
Some artists burn all objekts when the event is over. Some put it on the market. And a lot just leave them for grabs. The only rule is there are no rules!
So here are all the works I collected and which were still available for 0 XTZ when I last looked. And as I am a pro procrastinator that is some days ago
I am glad to have found Hic Et Nunc. Here and now is all there is so. Her we are being grateful for all these opportunities given with NFTs. And ready to explore Tezos.
