"Once it was free."is an NFT collection for Collectors & Investors, an art project to create a new form of democratic patronage in the Web3, the "Mecenate DAO".
Embracing the true meaning of the collection title ("Once it was free."), the first drop of 5'000 NFTs will be given for free to the selected pool of collectors and investors, letting them perform a price discovery in the secondary market, which will ultimately define the base price of the other two drops.
Having collected all the three drops, you will be granted access to the "Mecenate DAO", a decentralized autonomous organization funded with the aim of continuing promoting NFT's art projects, scouting emerging artists and collaborating with them, sharing all the profits generated between the DAO's members. This is a long term project with a sustainable earning prospective utility.
