BUILDS PROTOCOLS AND PRODUCTS FOR THE ART OF THE NEXT 100 YEARS
Kanon is a collective of art, design, and cryptonative technology professionals dedicated to establishing enduring protocols and products for the art of the next 100 years. We leverage the decentralized finance ecosystem to recast patronage, philanthropy, curation, and custodianship. In doing so, we are creating a new model in which artistic expression, structural experimentation, and financial return are mutually reinforcing.
COMMISSIONS AND EMPOWERS THE MOST PIVOTAL ARTISTS
In March 2021, Kanon launched the K21 Collection, a closed-end vault built around a curated selection of 21 unique NFT artworks by a diverse roster of trailblazing contemporary, digital, and cryptonative artists. K21 is a collection of ‘firsts’: some artists created new works specifically for their first NFTs while others minted their earliest contributions to the history of digital art. The collection exemplifies artistic diversity in terms of approach, medium, and identity. Kanon continues to work with the artists in its collection and others on new experimental projects in various formats.
UNLOCKS GOD MODE FOR NFTS
Kanon built KSPEC: the first-ever open source, permissionless, onchain protocol allowing for flexible, extensible, museum-grade NFTs. KSPEC lets artists verify their identity as they see fit and go beyond typical NFT restrictions that encumber their more ambitious creative visions, offers collectors unrivaled provenance and robustness, and provides NFTs the adaptability and updatability needed to persist over time.
