10,000 unique collectible characters with proof of ownership stored on the Ethereum blockchain. The project that inspired the modern CryptoArt movement. Selected press and appearances include Mashable, CNBC, The Financial Times, Bloomberg, MarketWatch, The Paris Review, Salon, The Outline, BreakerMag, Christie’s of London, Art|Basel, The PBS NewsHour, The New York Times in 2018 and again in 2021. The Cryptopunks are one of the earliest examples of a “Non-Fungible Token” on Ethereum, and were inspiration for the ERC-721 standard that powers most digital art and collectibles.
It all started with some pixel art.
We called them Blitmaps. We made 100 originals, which the community mixed to make 1,600 siblings — unique pieces that combine the composition of one original with the palette of another.
Then the heroes.
Shortly before completing the collection, we announced an expansion: The Blitnauts.
Now available and free to all Blitmap owners, this expansion pack introduces a brand new craftable collection — a faction of sentient robots sworn to locate and protect the Blitmaps, and the heroes of our world.
