ALF is dead

WTF! I am just a painter making some NFTs and thought I would be nice and share some code. Now I’m dealing with Freedom of Speech and Censorship issues?!

In order to give ArtistUnleashed a proper good-bye

  • The website now has a downloadable zip file with ALF tool and the ArtistUnleased, which anyone can upload to their website and use freely.
  • I have also uploaded the zip file to IPFS and made a torrent with files so that it cannot be taken down
  • And of course it is still on Github.
  • Ownership of the ArtistUnleashed has been sent to the Ethereum burn address, therefore no one can pause the contract or remove a token or minter.
  • The 10% royalty was removed from the ArtistUnleashed OpenSea storefront. I was receiving the 10% and then distributing it to the artists. The “royalty” was nice, but it is more important to have no third party control in an uncensorable app. To be clear, all of the royalty programs for NFTs are third party controlled, not embedded in the contract.

Long live ALF
