State of SEEN — Volume #14


This episode aims to highlight our development roadmap and go into more details surrounding the V3 launch and the upcoming features that will be introduced to the SEEN HAUS platform. V3 is yet our largest platform update and will be mainly focusing on scaling and governance.

V3 — Self-minting, royalties and reskin

Together with a website reskin, this first release will introduce our new NFT smartcontracts that will allow royalties to be collected. The release will also contain an interface that will allow digital artists to directly mint and list their own NFTs on the platform.
Initially, the SEEN HAUS foundation will be responsible for curating and whitelisting artists for self-minting. This process is going to be replaced by community curation.

V3 — Marketplace

Shortly after, we will be introducing our own secondary marketplace. All NFTs that have been minted based on our newly introduced royalty standard will be able to collect royalties on behalf of the artist when traded on the marketplace. It is also to be expected that platforms such as OpenSea will integrate the royalty standard, which will then allow the artists to collect royalties even outside our in-house marketplace.

V3 — Community Curation

The third and last major upgrade will introduce community curation, which will put the whitelisting process into the hands of the community / $SEEN holders. In order to do so, a snapshot inspired voting process will be implemented to approve any pending listing requests from digital artists.

Email notifications

Want to make sure you don’t miss a specific auction? Listings can be watched and emails will be sent to watchers if the listing receives a bid.

New Market Handlers / Auction formats

We’ll be introducing an OfferHandler, that allows users to get offered ETH for their minted tokens without needing to list them as an auction or an edition.

Sponsored Listings

We’ll be setting up areas of the website which can be bought using Harberger Taxes (similar to how the banner can be bought at the ethtrader subreddit), an additional revenue stream for the staking contract and treasury.

L2 scaling

With the upcoming releases of various Layer 2 scaling solutions, we will do research in terms of L2 network deployment in order to reduce Gas prices.

Auction Recap

This week we featured NYC artist 1Penemy, who released his SOHO NFT SERIES and one of his signature mugshot pieces as a 1/1 physical.
