DAO is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization. To keep it simple: Fingerprints DAO owns a collection of curated art that is controlled by holders of the $PRINTS coin, these voters can control the actions of the treasury in order to pursue their common goals that further the collection.
You can enjoin in everything the DAO offers, along with voting rights that control the DAO, by buying $PRINTS ERC-20 token. Visit the #otc channel in the Fingerprints DAO Discord.
The DAO owns the Fingerprints Collection. Currently, this Collection has: Autoglyphs, Deafbeef, IKB, Meebits, $PRINTS, and Etheruem. The DAO is focused on collecting smart contracts as art. You can learn more about Autoglyphs and Meebits at LarvaLabs’ website.
There are 3 types of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens):
(1) Fully centralized NFTs (like NBA Top Shot), where no information is in a public blockchain; (2) “Pointers”, NFTs where the certificate of provenance is on a public blockchain, but the artwork itself is elsewhere; and, (3) Fully on-chain NFTs.
Most NFTs fall under the first two categories. Surprisingly few NFTs today attempt to use the blockchain itself as medium and storage.
Fingerprints DAO thinks that fully on-chain NFTs are the closest you can get to holding a physical artwork. Autoglyphs were the first fully on-chain art. Created in 2019, they’re a completely self-contained mechanism for the creation and ownership of an artwork.
