Tailor your contracts…
On the Gamma Create Portal, we offer three different types of NFT smart contracts:
  • Continuous - best for auctions, 1/1s, art released over time…
  • Public Mint - best for large mints, PFPs…
  • Editions - best for POAPs, ticketing…
If you’re not sure which one is best suited for your NFT project, watch the videos down below for a deep-dive on each type of smart contract.

Artist Spotlight
Meet Dyle, an early Stacks artist who creates one of a kind abstract graphic NFTs on Gamma. Read about his story below and check out a few of his currently live auctions!
The Route We Were On
The Route We Were On
Hi everyone, Dyle here. I joined the Stacks community in November last year (2021) following a recommendation from a friend from work. I’m an UK based, Polish born visual artist and programmer who entered the NFT world after many years of making live visuals and writing generative software for it.
When I become interested in crypto, I realized that the software I created for live visuals was ideal for making NFTs. Since then, I built a video workshop in my spare room, which had been my dream for many years.
The software I made is based on a glitch in a graphical programming language called PureData. Over the years, I’ve learned to control the error and use it in a creative way to produce abstract graphics, while writing more software to control glitches using sound frequencies. I will post some more documentation covering the process sometime in the near future.
Check out Dyle’s videos, blog (where he documents each NFT creation), and follow him on his other channels.
Thanks for tuning in! We’ll see you next week.
