Generative art tooling

This week, we opened up our Generative Series creation flow to the public, which allows code-based artists to seamlessly test, preview, and deploy generative art collections. Features include:

  • No fees: You keep 100% of your sales, both primary and secondary.
  • Dynamic inputs: Seed your projects with real-time inputs such as transaction hash, timestamp, wallet address, gas used, and more.
  • Curated outputs: You have the option to hand-pick the available outputs while maintaining a verifiably random mint reveal.
  • Smart contract ownership: You own the contracts you deploy. You can upgrade, extend, or modify your contract independently of Highlight.
  • Multiple chain support: Deploy on Ethereum, L2s including Arbitrum, Base, Optimism, Polygon, or Zora, or testnets.

To create a generative collection, head here, select “Create a collection”, and pick “Generative series.” More information can be found in our knowledge base, or see a quick demo in this video.

User profiles

Along with our generative launch, we released user profiles. Each profile is connected to a wallet and displays collections created and tokens collected on Highlight. You can set your avatar as an uploaded image or your unique mint from our genesis collection: Sum by Duane King.

Profiles will also be verified on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to verify your account, please fill out this form here.

Other improvements

Here’s what else we shipped this week:

  • A new UI for our tools dashboard. We’ve revamped our dashboard layout and overall menu navigation for a cleaner, more streamlined experience.
  • Gates, pages, and contracts can now be found by clicking the dropdown next to “Collections”
  • Lots of design polish across our mint, browse, and token detail pages
  • Fixed a bug where edit royalties and claims for auctions were not working
  • 120+ other smaller bug fixes and functional improvements
