LarvaLabs Paves CryptoPunks’ Long-Term Future
NFT pioneer, LarvaLabs,is looking to lock the decentralized future of its flagship project,CryptoPunks. To achieve this epic goal, it is developing a new open-source platform that will allow the venerated Punks to live on indeterminately.
When LarvaLabs first unconstrained, the now god-like, Punks, they gave them away free of charge. Without writing royalties or secondary sales into the contract, effectually permitting for an unimpeded P2P transfer experience. Ever since that primary drop back in 2017, the two man team have maintained a native punk trading platform. However, realizing their own mortality they understand that they require a more robust solution going forward.
Stage one of the plan took place way back in Autumn when the CryptoPunks images were moved entirely on-chain. Now, development is underway for “CryptoPunks Market interface 2.0,” an entirely open-source, zero fee trading solution which will permit community input and code aids,in addition to empowering users to fork and run their own nodes. This will help ensure the long-term independence of the blockchain’s most infamous NFT collection, the CryptoPunks.
