This week we were thrilled to announce that Decentraland has officially integrated our smart contract into their marketplace so that users can now purchase SuperRare artworks directly in VR using MANA. When a Decentraland user buys an artwork using MANA it’s automatically converted to ETH for the seller, and since our smart contract was incorporated, secondary sale royalties will be honored.

Please note: only artworks with a “Buy Now” list price can be purchased.

Check out the official announcement HERE.

Take some time this weekend to read Artistry in the Age of GPT-3 by Simon de la Rouviere. Towards the end of the article Simon gives a call out to the recent sale of Alpha by Pak (purchased by MOCA).

“I love conceptual art, and this example of Pak, selling a transparent pixel for $15k is *great*. Pak, for those that don’t know, is behind the famous Archillect bot. I do understand that it *angers* and frustrates more traditional artists, but I love conceptual art its purpose in creating a unique feeling. That confusion, anger, that jarred liminality is part of its purpose. I enjoy it.”

Big congrats to the SuperRare community for another record breaking week of sales, taking the #1 spot for USD Traded and the #2 spot for USD Sales on the nonfungible.com weekly dapp rankings.

Take some time this weekend to read Decentraland Adds SuperRare to its Marketplace by Robert Hoogendoorn. We couldn’t be more exited about this integration and we really appreciate the feature.
