Announcement: Project Launch

February 23, 2023

We are happy to announce the formal launch and release of the Modern Relics project! 

Modern Relics is comprised of a carefully curated collection of 2014 Counterparty (Bitcoin) and Dogeparty (Dogecoin) collectible assets. The named assets all have a specific theme, and the project has been built to give the artist community the opportunity to showcase their talent with submissions of art appropriate to each monthly Modern Relic token. 

The project’s assets were first minted in 2014 as divisible assets with an issuance of one (1.0). In January of 2023 the assets had their divisibility reset, a new supply issued, and then locked.

There are two types of assets in the project:

COLLECTOR tokens, as their name implies, is for those who would like to gain all of the project’s assets as a complete collection. COLLECTOR holders will receive dividends monthly of each of the Modern Relic tokens once the winning artwork has been chosen. There will be a COLLECTOR token for both the Counterparty and the Dogeparty platforms, so in order to gain a truly complete collection, one must hold both COLLECTOR tokens (one from each platform).

The second type of token is the monthly Modern Relic, each of which has a unique name. The Modern Relics will have a winning piece of artwork added from a pool of submissions sent in by artists. All artwork which did not win, will still be attached to a one-of-a-kind sub-asset. The sub-asset will be minted by the project and its ownership will be assigned to the artist. The artist may choose to issue whatever supply they wish, and also lock their asset (or not).

Both artists and collectors will be able to sell, trade, or give away their assets as they see fit, and the project website will also act as a marketplace to facilitate transactions.
