Hello Particle Community!

Mint out is an important milestone for the Particle community. It represents the culmination of many months of work and the dedication and support of the community. We sincerely thank everyone who continues to bring the Particle vision to life and want to reaffirm our commitment towards creating a revolutionary new art ownership and collecting experience.

To thrust the project into its next phase, Particle will mint out the remaining particles over the course of a couple weeks.

Half of these particles will be held by Particle and the other half will be split among various partners and backers of Particle that are passionate about and committed to the future this community is building together. Mint will remain open during this time so anyone who wishes to purchase more particles can do so until all remaining particles have been minted, at which time the mint will be closed. 

Naturally, as we approach the end of this launch phase, we are focused on expanding the meaning and power of owning LIITA Particles.

Through our many conversations with community members, it is clear that everyone wants to participate more deeply in the governance of the masterpieces, as well as the governance of the non-profit. We are not only committed to making these desires a reality, but our governance work is well underway to deliver unprecedented access into the inner workings of the art and museum world. 

Community participation and governance has always been at the core of Particle’s vision, and we can’t wait to share our plans with all of you. 
The first step towards community involvement in key decision making will be a vote to decide where Banksy’s Love is in the Air should be exhibited next. We will be holding this vote on the Banksy Collectors chat as we are still building our suite of dapps to allow for a more structured, native voting process.

Stay tuned as we have a lot of exciting announcements over the next few weeks.

Be sure to also tune into our AMA next Tuesday (2/22) at 1pm PST/ 4pm EST / 10pm CET which will be hosted on Twitter Spaces. We will be gathering questions in the discord through the #ama-questions channel, and will be taking last minute questions at the end of the call. We hope to see you all there soon.

Thank You,
The Particle Team
