Hope everyone's had a good February so far -- we've been hard at work and have some new features for you!
The first is a gallery refresh. Let's dive into the changes here.
We've retired the dedicated Layers section and have replaced it with a hover overlay for Masters. It makes more sense to see Layers in the context of which piece they belong to and this frees up space to show a column of 3 tiles instead of 2.
We've also added additional filters to the gallery. New filters include:
- Whether a piece has autonomous features or not.
- Whether a piece is currently owned by the Artist(s) or is now trading on the secondary market.
We've also added an explore button to pieces built with Async Canvas!
Clicking this will allow you to try different Layer states locally and see how they affect the overall image.
These changes won't be shown globally of course (You need to own the Layer to do that!)
Another addition is when inputting an Ether (ETH) amount you'll now see the current USD value. This has been brought up by newer users who don't necessarily track the current ETH/USD price every day :)
And lastly, we're excited to announce that artists can choose to finish minting their Layers at any time after minting the Master.
We all know that Ethereum gas prices can be high at times and sometimes artists don't want to commit upfront to mint all the Layers. Async now supports this!
This means that a default State will be used until a Layer has been minted. This way an artist can fill in the remaining Layers as they're sold.
This doesn't mean that the artist is adding content to a piece after it's been minted, but just that they've delayed to mint the Layer token until a later time.
We hope you all enjoy this update!
