How a robust derivative subculture solidifies Milady's place as the dominant cultural force.

A Double Edged Sword

As any community, niche, or ideology grows, its success and expansion often bring accusations of dilution, subversion, and compromise. When a group of people have deemed something important and it gains traction, there is always a fear that newfound attention and opportunism will destroy whatever made that thing special.

This phenomenon is almost ubiquitous throughout the history of human culture, be it fringe political movements being embraced by moderates, avant-garde musical groups gaining mainstream recognition, or writers engaging in perceived self-censorship to meet editorial standards. No matter the context, the diehards fear potential change brought about by fresh perspectives.

In simpler terms, normies ruin everything. But is it always this way? More importantly, does it have to be? These are questions we've grappled with at Scatter.

Remilia Ecosystem on Scatter

On the 17th of June, Scatter welcomed the release of 'Glimpses,' a collection of 1000 abstract art pieces by Tgeus. At first glance, one might mistake it for just another Art Blocks-style generative abstract art project. However, 'Glimpses' goes beyond that, with its origins rooted in a deeper story.

It began as Tgeus' exploration of his fascination with particle physics and evolved into a heartfelt tribute to the sprotogremlin community. Standing out among other Scatter collections, both aesthetically and in terms of its origin, 'Glimpses' caught our attention. So, we sat down with Tgeus to delve deeper into the creative process behind this extraordinary collection.

With the launch of Pixelady Figmata today, Scatter will be introducing a new mint mechanic, Auto Auctions! If you would like to make a Scatter Auto Auction collection, read on. We can even assist you in making your own customized auction dapps for that extra level of polish.

  • ETYMOLOGY: Zora Auction House -> Noun Auction House -> Bonkler Auction -> Scatter Auction


Auto Auctions

Auto Auctions involve a minting process where the total supply of a collection is auctioned off generally one piece at a time. Once an auction’s time limit has elapsed, the highest bidder has won that auction and is able to claim or receive their NFT in question. When one auction ends, the next auction automatically can begin.

It's been an exciting week here at Scatter! On the 12th of June at 1:00 AM UTC, the Kawamii Teens mint went live on Scatter. Exactly 95 seconds later, the final NFT in Kawamii's 3000 piece collection was minted, and just like that, it was over. Over the next 48 hours, Kawamii Teens generated over 200 ETH in volume on secondary markets, according to Blur. Needless to say, the speed with which Kawamii Teens minted out and the consistency and resilience of the secondary market has exceeded the expectations of both the Kawamii team and us here at Scatter. You may be wondering as to what makes Kawamii special? Aspiring creators can read on to understand the efforts and thinking that went into achieving another massive W for the Remilia ecosystem.

Art and the New Internet: Web3. Fair Use, And Intellectual Property

The adversarial relationship between Intellectual Property (IP) Law and the Internet has persisted since the early days of the "Information Superhighway." From the Church of Scientology suing a Usenet host to Metallica's infamous lawsuit against Napster, and the daily DMCA abuse allegations on Web2 platforms like Youtube and TikTok, it's evident that antiquated and underhanded interpretations of IP law pose a significant threat to the free creation and dissemination of digital content. At Scatter, we are concerned that not enough is being done to address and prepare for these issues, even among the best actors in the industry. While the regulatory challenges from bodies like the SEC dominate the discourse in the blockchain/Web3 space, it's crucial to look ahead and protect against the issues that made Web2 untenable. If we aspire to build a new internet, Web3, we must address these challenges without relying solely on broad regulatory freedom granted to tech companies during the dotcom bubble.
