We're building a living virtual world around digital tulips.

Our tulips are programmatically generated, genetically expressive, environmentally responsive, 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.

We're putting a lot of thought into how to algorithmically generate tulips! Create and save your own random tulips with our (off-blockchain) tulip generator.

Saved tulips from the demo generator? Try your hand at mixing them together to create offspring, in a demo of our breeding process.



Watch this space. Our digital tulips are only the beginning.
