We're building a living virtual world around digital tulips.
Our tulips are programmatically generated, genetically expressive, provably unique, and stored on the blockchain. Each tulip is a beautiful, unpredictable piece of digital art. Soon, you'll be able to plant, grow, breed and exchange them. Texel is an online gaming experience, a digital art installation, and a social experiment.
The Texel team includes Mark Willis (artist, designer, directed web & digital strategy at Harvard University), Sam Weinrott (developer, filmmaker, Philadelphia blockchain community leader), Eric Manganaro (blockchain developer, musician, natural language processing at University of Pennsylvania), Andrew Malkin (blockchain engineer). The team is based in Philadelphia.
Initial demos, a roadmap, and a whitepaper are forthcoming.
