Update: A special thank you to David for winning the auction and for supporting this initiative. If you are one of 14 artists that minted on Mint Fund Batch 01, or $BOUNTY holder, you can claim your split below. A full breakdown of the split allocations can be found here.
On February 28th, we unveiled our first 35 artists. After two weeks of onboarding, planning, and networking, we knew it was time to mint. We instituted the “Round” method of minting works in groups every Wednesday and Saturday. To date, 14 of those artists have successfully minted and released their first NFTs out into the world. This post serves as a highlight and reference to memorialize the group that started it all.
Update: $BOUNTY Crowdfund has been fully funded. Thank you to all contributors and supporters. We are currently coordinating a candidate search to hire the bounty developer and we are grateful to have the Mirror team assisting with technical evaluation of candidates and submissions.

Two weeks ago we asked our community to help bring open source NFT reserve auction functionality to the world. Today, we’re auctioning off that code (with the code!) as a 1/1 NFT.
Reserve Auctions are a mechanism for selling NFTs widely credited with creating more value for artists, but they have typically been limited to proprietary marketplaces. We wanted to bring a robust and completely permissionless version to anyone who wants to use it.
By open-sourcing this implementation of a reserve auction, we hope to directly empower creators by giving them the tools they need to freely sell their work, on their terms.
