Particle was founded by a team of leading figures and innovators in the worlds of art, blockchain, and technology.
Particle will leverage this team to acquire and tokenize the world’s greatest masterpieces and build one of the best collections out there. This will be done via a Particalization Process which involves taking a painting’s title deed—or the legal term for proof of ownership—and dividing into (in the case of the first acquisition) a 100x100 grid resulting in 10,000 unique NFTs we call Particles.
The physical works of art will be placed in the Particle Foundation, a non-profit public trust and physical museum whose purpose is to maintain, preserve, and display the collection on behalf of the Particle community. Every work acquired by Particle will be immediately integrated into the Particle Foundation’s permanent collection on behalf of the community, thus ensuring the physical works will never be sold. The Particle Foundation will operate like a public trust but for the enjoyment of the Particle community. Our goal is to tour the collection internationally to give a chance to as many people to see and enjoy the works in person.
The Particle Foundation will also develop a presence in the form of a museum in the metaverse where the collection will be accessible at all times. The Particle collection will be the first of its kind –one built by and for the community.
