Palm Garden: Mapping the Regenerative Impact of Generative Art

The past year has marked a time of massive upheaval. New challenges have shaped our institutions, and threatened our environment. New infrastructure has formed. Communities, like the ones we work in, have flourished. 

We have the opportunity to create a world that today we can only imagine. Chaos, complexity. Magic. 

We long for a place that never existed. 

So, we made one. ・゜゜・.

Palm Garden is the first project we’re releasing as part of the new Candy Digital.  It’s a social impact platform that charts the emergence of a young planet. Over time, we’ll see a new, labyrinthine territory take form. The very first building blocks of life will gain sentience. New species will evolve. New terrain will surface. 

By participating in this world, you’ll give it shape. And you’ll create lasting impact; through initiatives designed to support environmental action. Our goal is to use blockchain technology as a means of sustaining and regenerating habitats. 

The building blocks of life. 

The first project to launch on Palm Garden is the planet’s first species, Inklings. Inklings are the building blocks of life in this young world: born with unique traits that help them explore and impact the territory around them. Their job is to imagine the world’s future in their minds’ eyes: to map its contours, to steward its growth. 

Inklings mark the first project built with the Palm Generative Art Maker, which has been downloaded by more than 27K artists on Unreal. Every Inkling is generative, singular. A genesis block for the world we build next. A world that is now, and always: beginning anew.

Explore our world through stories. 

Starting on Reveal, Inklings holders will receive missions that invite them to learn more about our emerging planet. Through these quests, we’ll reveal the origin of this world, the genesis of Inklings, and provide navigation for the territories unknown. Here, expression is a biological necessity, and collaboration will be key to survival. 

A new way of supporting environmental causes. 

We believe that blockchain creativity can be a force for good. Palm Garden, minting on the environmentally-friendly Palm network, will be dedicated to supporting sustainability issues. Following the Palm Garden: Inklings drop in June, this summer, we’ll be releasing a new project dedicated to direct environmental impact. Candy Digital has committed to donating 100% of the proceeds to each cause. Stay tuned for details. 

Our world begins when you create your place in it. 

The geography of Palm Garden is shaped by its inhabitants. Your perspective unlocks our world. Your actions will shape it.
