Today we are thrilled to kick off an exciting opportunity for creators to showcase their work on a global stage. Blind Boxes is collaborating with leading blockchain project Ocean Protocol to kick off the Get Minted Challenge — Ocean Protocol Edition.
Here we invite creators to develop art, memes, and other creative assets inspired by Ocean Protocol, a highly coveted blockchain project that allows users to unlock the value of data.
Theme: Seas the Moment
The long-fabled city of Atlantis is ancient and mysterious. Using Ocean’s main brand assets, showcase an underwater cityscape fit for the 21st century that represents Ocean’s lively ecosystem. At the heart of the Ocean ecosystem is OceanDAO, a grants funding program powering the growth and sustainability of our community. Outfit your underwater community with data-generating IoT devices, smart technology, robotics.
Creators, it’s time to show the NFT community what you’ve got. There are no limits on your imagination. Submit original work (art, memes, 3D renders, video loops, VR and AR assets) centered on the theme: Seas the Moment. Art should incorporate elements of Ocean’s brand [found here], but it need not be restricted to this.
- Creators will have 14 days to submit art
- Submissions are made through Twitter by using #OceanBlindBoxes, #BLESgetminted, @blindboxes.io, and @oceanprotocol
- Voting will be conducted on-chain via the Blind Boxes site
- Voting rewards (BLES and OCEAN tokens) will be distributed to incentivize participation

Voting will occur on the blockchain over the course of five days. Rewards in the form of BLES and OCEAN tokens will be distributed to:

About Ocean Protocol
Ocean Protocol’s mission is to kickstart a new Data Economy that reaches the world, giving power back to data owners and enabling people to capture value from data to better our world.
Data is a new asset class; Ocean Protocol unlocks its value. Data owners and consumers use the Ocean Market app to publish, discover, and consume data assets in a secure, privacy-preserving fashion.
Ocean datatokens turn data into data assets. This enables data wallets, data exchanges, and data co-ops by leveraging crypto wallets, exchanges, and other DeFi tools. Projects use Ocean libraries and OCEAN in their own apps to help drive the new Data Economy.
The Ocean token is used to stake on data, to govern Ocean Protocol’s community funding, and to buy & sell data. Its supply is disbursed over time to drive near-term growth and long-term sustainability. OCEAN is designed to increase with a rise in usage volume.
