KONJUNGATE is based on the cyber novel MACHFELD written 1999 by Michael Mastrototaro. Strangely, the main character of the book is called Nakamoto and thus resembles the pseudonym of the BITCOIN inventor Satoshi Nakamoto. What a coincidence, right? Anyway.
In his cyber novel, he describes 9 years before Bitcoin appears on the cryptocurrency horizon the mining of KONJUNGATE.
Now 20 years after publishing the novel online, KONJUNGATE appears as a Media Art project to decentralize the funding of international contemporary Artists and Institutions and to give a strong artistic statement in times of budget cuts.
How does it work?
During the creation of the KONJUNGATE Blockchain, 1,25% of the total digital assets was premined. This amount of Tokens will be used as an initial fund for distributing the Token to a wide range of international Art-Institutions, to support contemporary Artists and as registered capital for the charitable MACHFELD-Foundation (in establishing) which will ensure further distribution of tokens in the future and its task is to ensure value security by means of art purchases.
KONJUNGATE will swap to a new chain.
All SWAP information will be announced in all our social media channels.
Right now most activity is on our discord-server. Feel free to join us there:
BLOCK THAT CHAIN
We are happy to announce that we are invited to a Blockchain Labor - hosted by https://mur.at (our 1st organisation partner).
Democracy, resource distribution, transfer of funds: following the visions of protagonists of various
blockchain based projects, almost all of humanities problems can be solved by their tech. We’re in for a new wave of technology
that will take us to a brighter future. No need to trust anyone anymore.
Trust is provided by the system. Everything saved is safe, forever and immutable.
What does a world, where trust is provided by machines look like? What benefits do we get from total transparency?
What will all the accumulated data be used for in the future? Has there ever been a problem that could be solved by throwing technology at it?
Block that chain is a six day worklab in Graz/Austria organized by mur.at where we will discuss the above made statements,
look for answers to the posed questions and find further questions to broaden the discussion and engage the public.
After an intense week of input from different angles, discussions and experiments we will present the results to a greater public.
This Project is supported by the MACHFELD-Foundation
WE HAVE SOMETHING TO GIVE
80% OF OUR PREMIND COINS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED DURING CALLS FOR ARTISTS, CALLS FOR INSTITUTIONS AND IN FORM OF MEDIA ART INSTALLATIONS REALIZED BY MACHFELD (SABINE MAIER & MICHAEL MASTROTOTARO)
The premined tokens will also be used to establish the MACHFELD FOUNDATION
which will support contemporary Artists and Institutions in the near future.
