What is a DAO? And more specifically what is Fingerprints DAO?

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.

How can I join Fingerprints DAO, and help with 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.

What is in the Fingerprints DAO Treasury and why?

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.

What is a NFT and what is an "on-chain NFT"?

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.
