Particles are NFTs built on the ERC-721 standard, on the Ethereum Blockchain.
Particles are created via the Particalization Process which involves taking a work of Art and dividing it into a series of Particles. Each Particle is unique, allowing the holder to enjoy a personal connection to the artwork within the overarching structure of collective ownership.
Particles represent your claim to ownership of specific works of Art in the Particle Collection. A co-ownership is created once the Particles of each works have been minted. This co-ownership is governed on chain for major decision making (such as selling the underlying art), and delegates administrative tasks to the Particle Foundation.
The Particle Foundation assumes the costs associated with the high-value Art in the collection –this ranges from insurance, storage and security, to logistics of exhibiting the Art around the world. For this, the Foundation benefits from a portion of the royalties on the secondary market trading of the Particles.
