Inspired by the enthusiasm received by the ConstiutionDAO's effort to acquire an original copy of the Constitution.
I contributed to the effort — and was saddened when we didn't win the auction. I realize technically with the DAO
we were not really going to "own a fraction of the constitution" but rather have input on the governance around
ownership — but I think many folks who jumped in — came in with blurred visions around the technicals... And
this art project seizes on those foggy thoughts and takes the "fractional ownership" idea very literally...
CFRAC NFTs were offered as a free mint (+gas) to anyone who contributed to the original ConstitutionDAO OR held 1,000 $PEOPLE token
at the time of mint. An in depth writeup about the mint and the collection is available on the PeopleDAO Mirror:
CFRAC NFT — The Mint, The Art, and The Contract
Donation to The Smithsonian Institution
Although the vision for the ConstitutionDAO's efforts were valiant — in the end there were many fissures and
open questions left unanswered. The attention it has brought to the concept of DAOs and "Web3" is great!
Taking a step back, we are grateful that tried and true institutions like The Smithsonian Institution exist;
take great care and pride of our historic artifacts — and keep them accessible to the general public.
We donated 5% of proceeds raised at mint to The Smithsonian Institution.
CFRACs are stored immutably on the Ethereum Blockchain as an ERC-721 compliant NFT (non fungible token).
