After 3D modeling, painting, generative art and photography, Street-Art is the great artistic movement of the moment that revolutionized NFTs.
Cryptos and NFTs are currently experiencing a slowdown, but despite this, some projects deserve special attention, including Streetlab.io. This is the new decentralized platform dedicated to #StreetArtNFT. This platform specializes in the drops of NFT collections created by Street-Artists. And unlike some platforms that want to “tokenize” photos of physical Street-Art works, Streetlab.io invites artists to unleash their creativity through digital works.
Streetlab.io: the decentralized platform for street artists
streetlab.io is a platform on which street artists canexplore the world of NFTs† Their aim is to guide street artists who want to get started in the NFT universe by providing them with tools to understand this environment, support on the technical side and an audience of collectors interested in this artistic movement.†
What sets Streetlab.io apart from other Street-Art x NFT platforms is the fact that they invite street artists to experiment by creating native digital collections. The richness of this platform stems in particular from the fact that many artists, who may or may not have already started to create digitally, open up a field of possibilities in terms of collaboration with other artistic movements that were previously inaccessible.
Streetlab.io does not want to become a platform that lists photos of existing physical works to sell them as NFTs. The vision of the founders is to succeed in creating Street-Art’s Artblocks and to register as specialists in the #StreetArtNFT movement.
Founders and teams
Alexis D’Eudeville and Sebastien Rouby are the two founders of Streetlab.io. Alexis negotiated a perfect transition from Web 2 to Web 3 by leaving Google to create the Streetlab.
As for Sébastien, after a stint in finance, he plunged into several entrepreneurial adventures, watching the Defi universe since 2018 to become passionate about NFTs.
They founded streetlab.io because they were convinced that NFT technology is a fundamentally positive revolution for art and artists.
Julien Bessaguet is responsible for the technical part by wearing the CTO hat and Sonia Ankri is responsible for recruiting street performers and supporting them in creating their collections.
The different partnerships
Streetlab.io is designed to welcome all street performers who want to take on the NFT adventure. The Streetlab Genesis collection was also designed by Yescka, an Oaxacan street artist nicknamed the “Mexican Banksy”, for whom this collection is a first step into the NFT universe.
Streetlab aims to attract the attention of street artists, galleries, schools, museums and collectors’ clubs. More than 25 world-famous street performers have already joined the adventure† Notably Difuz, Nefrit, Tchader, Lafleuj, Mehdi Cibille, Falko, Sam Elgreco, Dalek, Jason Naylor, Lucas Beaufort, Shane.
Streetlab.io launches its Genesis collection
To fund and promote Streetlab.io, Genesis Collection designed by Mexican street artist Yescka launched on June 2, 2022. The latter consists of 4444 NFTs.
Inspired by the El Dia des Los Muertos tradition in Mexico, these figures represent freedom fighters returning from the dead. Their mission is to lead Street Artists into the NFT scene to make their messages resonate and fight censorship.
How to buy an NFT Genesis?
The role of the Streetlab Genesis collection for the Streetlab.io platform
- Possible access to a portion of the platform’s revenue
- privileged access to future drops hosted on street lab.io
- the opportunity to sponsor street-Artist and unlock a “Referral Bonus” equal to 5% of the amount generated by all the artist’s drops on the platform, for life
How does Streetlab work?
Every artist has free access to the center of Streetlab Resources and join the community disagreement to learn more about NFTs. However, in order to be featured and promoted by Streetlab, artists must apply by presenting themselves their project.
Streetlab uses all the codes and levers of Web 3 to build a community and decentralized platform. Every member of the community is an actor and has the concrete means to participate in the development of the movement #StreetArtNFT†
Rewarding active community members and encouraging peer-to-peer collaboration is a core part of the Streetlab.io platform.
For this reason, any holder of a street lab genesis can: sponsor a street artist on the platform† The sponsor receives 5% of the primary revenue generated by the referred artist without affecting the artist’s share.
Bestsellers on Streetlab
Inspired by Artblocks, the platform offers a page with all the collections where the drops of the selected artists appear. Different types of drops can coexist on the platform: auctions for 1/1, collections at fixed prices, etc.
Streetlab.io only focuses on drops and the primary market. All collections are then accessible on marketplaces such as Opensea or LooksRare on the secondary market.
Streetlab business model
The development of the Streetlab platform and its launch is funded by the primary sale of the Streetlab Genesis collection. The sources of income will be:
Representing service charges on Streetlab.io 15% of all primary sales hosted by the platform. The distribution of secondary costs is discussed separately for each project.
Streetlab Genesis secondary market
The majority of all secondary market royalties generated by Streetlab Genesis will be allocated to the Treasury.
As Streetlab evolves, the team and community will take every opportunity to launch new projects. The main goal remains to develop the project by creating value for all holders of Streetlab Genesis.
Board at StreetLab
As mentioned in the presentation, the Streetlab built by the community for the benefit of the latter, as a decentralized organization. Governing mechanisms are designed to reconcile decentralization and efficiency. The adopted structure thus includes three levels of government, in particular:
Level 1: Streetlab members
To be eligible, you must: holder of at least 1 Streetlab Genesis NFT† This gives the right to privileged access to future drops (presale, discount, exclusive drops, etc.), the opportunity to sponsor a street artist and the fact to vote to select the artists who want to join the platform.
Level 2: The Curators Club
To become a curator you must: receive one of the 88 Streetlab Genesis NFTs with a secret attribute. They form the membership card of this club.
This membership makes it possible enjoy all the benefits of level 1† Curator Club members reap all the benefits of Level 1 with the addition of access to a portion of the profits generated by the platform each quarter. Note that every quarter there will be a big draw among all Streetlab Genesis holders to select 22 people who will also share the same share of the profits as the trustee club members.
Level 3: Super Curators
For this last level members are selected by the Streetlab central team on purely qualitative criteria† This category gives access to a privileged space within the Streetlab.io platform to create specific #StreetArtNFT collections. For now, only one Super Curator has been revealed: it is the famous Museum of CryptoArt founded by Benoit Couty†
