Despite playing a pivotal role in the evolution of generative and dynamic art within the Web3 realm, Async Art has sadly revealed its decision to wind down operations. The company closes at this year’s end.
Async Art’s CEO, Conlan Rios, shared the news about Async calling it quits through a series of tweets, expressing his gratitude for everyone who has been a part of its remarkable journey. Leaving on a positive note, he reaffirmed his continued enthusiasm for digital assets and the Web3 community’s creative pursuits:
This has been an amazing journey thus far and I thank everyone who’s traveled with us. Personally, I’m not going anywhere and I remain bullish as ever on digital assets. I hope to continue celebrating what you all continue to make, build, and collect ❤️

Wrapping Up a Remarkable Journey
Since its inception in February 2020, Async has been a driving force for creative pursuits through Async.Market — a one-stop shop for unique art and music experiences on the blockchain, empowering creators globally.
Async.Market is best known for its Blueprints system that enables the creation of generative NFTs without the need for coding expertise, crafting famous artworks like ‘Grifters’ by XCOPY and Coldie’s ‘DecentralEyesMashup’. Nonetheless, the marketplace will cut off purchases at the end of 2023 and no longer accept new submissions.
Async NFTs, however, will continue being accessible on the blockchain and InterPlanetary File System. On top of that — valuing the interactive nature of Async assets — the team has pledged to potentially launch a simplified viewer in the coming months to ensure its distinctive and captivating art items remain accessible to fans.
Since Async pieces are dynamic, interaction requires a front-end website and user interface. Our team will make an effort to see if we can launch a simplified viewer in coming months.

Additionally, Async emphasized that the company’s closure does not mean the end of the generative and dynamic art movement that it aided, tweeting, “We’re confident that this movement will live on through the spirit of Web3 builders and creators,” before expressing sincere appreciation for its vibrant community of artists, collectors and partners.
Although the chapter is closing for Async, the legacy it leaves behind significantly entails artists’ empowerment, innovations, and the utmost importance of community on-chain.
