pixEOS Community Update: Milestones
The minds behind pixEOS are some of the brightest in their fields, and we have assembled them together to bring to life a truly one of a kind platform. By carefully analyzing the best approach to make pixEOS a reality amid widespread marketplace uncertainty, the team has been able to succeed in cultivating a thriving artist community, meanwhile managing to successfully fundraise despite bear market conditions.
While we’ve had a busy and exciting few weeks, celebrating the new year while readying for the official launch of the platform, along the road to building the world’s first art, gaming, and profit-sharing driven auction house for non-fungible tokens on the EOS blockchain, many important milestones have been met.

During Q4 2018, pixEOS successfully launched its own native token on the EOS blockchain, creating a total supply of 4,658,241,350 PIXEOS tokens.
Token Distribution Event
Paying no mind to what is being generally perceived as a bear market, pixEOS is ramping up to be among the most successful fundraising startups in the EOS ecosystem to date.
On January 9th 2019, pixEOS completed Round 1 of our Token Distribution event. Community participants bought a grand total of 500,000,000 PIXEOS, with a minimum contribution of 100 EOS, at a rate of 1750 PIXEOS per EOS token.
Currently Round 2 of the Token Distribution event is ongoing, where a second offering of 500,000,000 PIXEOS tokens are available, with a minimum contribution of 10 EOS at a rate of 1,000 PIXEOS per EOS token. Round 2 is scheduled to close on January 25, 2019 or when the tokens are sold out.
Community Rewards, Contests, and Giveaways
Early on pixEOS sought out individuals on a global scale to form its team of experts, and as stated in our White Paper, in our outreach we hired at least 12 people directly out of our community. Now our colorful crew covers the globe, with team members operating out of Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Portugal, USA, and Venezuela.
Our team is still growing so we expect this list to grow with it!
pixEOS has been busy rewarding creativity in the ecosystem to help our community. From day one we’ve arranged to airdrop thousands of PIXEOS Tokens across wallet services like Token Pocket.

pixEOS also offers community bounties to members who help us by submitting awesome ideas, finding pesky typos, and helping out in other creative ways.
Plus for every 100th member who joins the Official pixEOS Telegram channel, we award a corresponding amount of PIXEOS tokens. That means the 100th member of the group received 100 PIXEOS tokens and the 200th member received 200 and so on. So far 3600 PIXEOS have been awarded and the team is looking forward to the next centennial community member!
As the pixEOS community continues to grow, there will be more opportunities for members to participate in contests for prizes and receive airdrop giveaways. There are still thousands and thousands of tokens to give out and right you now can participate in our latest GIF competition!
**After winning contests, both Stellabelle and Yusaymon have since gone forward to join the pixEOS team; once they joined the team their participation in contests and promotions ceased. When the platform is live everyone is invited to play on the pixEOS paint dApp, however in the spirit of fairness, core founding members of the pixEOS team will not be allowed to participate. The founding members are Fred N. and Jorge A. The rest of the team, including Stellabelle, Yusaymon, Fabi, Gama, Featured Artists, all the community managers and the rest of the team are allowed to participate and play the pixEOS games. The pixEOS team is completely transparent; if you have questions about contests or eligibility don’t be afraid to ask a team member in the Official pixEOS Telegram channel.
