Buy Cultural Artifacts

Artifacts are an exciting way to support creators at the frontier of art, science, technology, and design. In this help article, we'll guide you through the process of buying open edition Artifacts from projects in our Official Selection.


Step 1: Explore the Official Selection

Visit the Artizen homepage and review all the projects in our Official Selection. Take your time to browse through the projects and find the ones you love and would like to support.

Step 2: Connect Your Wallet

Click the "Sign In" button on and connect your crypto wallet. If you don't have a wallet, we suggest using MetaMask or Rainbow wallet. Follow the instructions provided by the wallet service to set up and fund your account with Ether (ETH).

Step 3: Purchase Artifacts

Click the "Buy" button for the Artifact you'd like to purchase. Each Artifact costs 0.01 ETH, and we recommend buying at least 10 Artifacts to support your favorite creators. As an open edition, you can buy as many copies of each Artifact as you'd like until the end of the season and which point the sale comes to a close.

Step 4: Approve the Transaction

Once you've selected the Artifact(s) you want to purchase, a transaction window will appear in your wallet. Review the transaction details, including the cost of the Artifact(s) and any associated gas fees. Confirm the transaction to complete your purchase.

Benefits of Owning Artifacts:

By delivering real value to their owners, Artifacts help raise money for projects at the frontier of art, science, technology, and design. Artifacts empower you to:

  • Curate our winners
    Artifacts give you the power to curate our Official Selection. Buy Artifacts to vote for your favorite projects and champion the creators you love.

  • Join a Vibrant Community
    When you own an Artifact, you join a vibrant community of artists, scientists, coders, and creators of every kind.

  • Invest in Positive Impact
    Artifacts are designed to reward positive impact. Think carbon credits, but for any project that does good in the world.

Buy Artifacts on Secondary Market

When Artizen is in-between seasons, Artifacts are not available for purchase. However you can still buy Artifacts from our collection on the secondary market.
