From Paris, with love

Welcome to this week’s issue of The Baking Sheet! Lots is going on and it’s amazing to see the Tezos Community come together IRL at events like Art Basel Hong Kong, Tezos Vancouver, and at the upcoming Tezos Greece Meetup. Don’t forget, Tez/Dev is a little less than 2 months away in Paris, hope to see all of you there.
In this week’s issue, we’re going to take a closer look at the recent fxhash momentum.
Ecosystem Insights: fxhash is rising
In case you haven’t noticed, fxhash is starting to make lots of headway. Recently, it overtook OBJKT and H=N as the top NFT platform on Tezos in terms of on-chain activity.
The Stack Report
With ~198k contract calls over the past two weeks @fx_hash_ overtakes @objktcom and @hicetnunc2000 contracts to claim the nr 1 spot in terms of on-chain activity on the @tezos blockchain. https://t.co/rZhg5AoO1A
Like H=N, Versum, and other marketplaces on Tezos - fxhash takes a similar approach in driving eye traffic to purely the art. The only caveat is the UI, it’s not nearly as polished as Versum’s. Or, at least you don’t have the same feeling of where you’re using a marketplace but don’t really see it. 
Fxhash is an open platform where artists can publish generative tokens which are stored on the Tezos blockchain. These tokens are programs designed to produce random outputs - allowing for any user with a Tezos wallet to mint their own unique iteration of the token. 
So, fxhash very much caters to the generative style of art. In effect, the platform provides a framework so that generative artists can have a space in which they can mint their pieces which are meant to be generative. 
That said, flocks of artists and creators have begun migrating over to fxhash. Nearly 200k contracts calls have been created over the past two weeks on the platform. 
As Tezos continues to evolve and grow, we’re excited to see the continued momentum of all the different NFT platforms alongside it! Be sure to check out fxhash if you haven’t yet.

Tezos Vancouver was a success!
More than 20 people gathered at the first Tezos Vancouver meetup since the pandemic. It was great seeing familiar and new faces sharing ideas for the Tezos Ecosystem. Thanks to Jev and the entire ECAD Labs team putting on a very Tezos-centric event and look forward to hosting these every month moving forward.
Don’t forget – The first ‘Tezos Greece’ Social Meetup for 2022 has arrived!
On Saturday, May 28, at 19:00 we will meet in Athens, at “Yades Event Venues” ( https://g.co/kgs/2JZmhb ) to meet and discuss everything around Tezos!

In the next few days we will be announcing something big we are building on #tezos.

BIG, partly because we’re bringing in the biggest traditional-#art players in the world.

What we’re building does not exist on any other #blockchain.

This Week in Tezos Development
We invite you to build the code base for future use cases for the Arts & Culture on the Tezos blockchain. Bounties will be created in a collaboration of eight cultural institutions who are ready to look beyond drops and collectables and will co-create open source Proof of Concepts on the Tezos blockchain with the aim to be tested and aimed to put into production in the near future.
