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.



We're putting a lot of thought into how to algorithmically generate tulips! Create and save your own random tulips with our 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. From Tiles to tokens to Tulips, we've got a lot of interesting ideas coming up.
