What is a Particle?

Particles can be openly traded on the Secondary Market;

Particles are your ticket to making decisions about what happens to the art. Collect more Particles to have greater control over the art.

What happens to the physical Art? How is it maintained?

The physical Art is held by the Particle Foundation, a Delaware registered 501(c)3 public non-profit organization. The Particle Foundation has been funded by a $500,000 grant by the Avalanche Foundation in early 2022. Using these funds, and the 2.5% of secondary Particle transaction revenues, the Foundation is the entity entrusted with maintaining the art –from insurance, storage, security and exhibitions. All documents pertaining to the Art are published on the ParticleDAO Forum.


Can I sell Art to the Particle Community?

If you own or have access to culturally-significant artworks that you believe would be a good addition to the Particle Collection, please [email protected]


Is Particle a DAO? Is there a governance token?

Particle itself is a Web3 native organization the is spearheading the decentralized ownership of physical assets such as fine art on the blockchain. Each masterpiece is however governed by its community of Particle collectors, in a “sub-DAO” manner. You can find more information about the ParticleDAO here.
