Our Art industry focussed DeFi is aimed at providing capital to art projects globally, enabling the community to find the next Banksy. Our unique ecosystem ties together sales of physical art, NFT art, liquidity pools and staking to create value for the community.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: How the idea came to perpetuate the disappearing art on the blockchain. We are very glad that you are with us😊
Stacey Maites: Steven wanted to break down the barriers of art with extreme art and a virtual experience for the viewer. I am typing for Steven as I am faster at the keyboard.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: It is very interesting! Please tell us more🙏 Great🚀😁
Avron Goss: From the concept of breaking down barriers it became a natural progression to add NFTs as most of the art in our gallery is produced digitally

Q1 from Telegram User @Korryl
Two Two project is the first interactive art Gallery that also have NFT feature. So will you have your own NFT marketplace to buy and sell NFT art or will you using 3rd website like opensea? Also I want to ask do we possible to create a NFT art using your platform?
Avron Goss: At launch we will use 3rd party platforms for speed to market, but do envisage sales directly from our site in future allowing artists to use X22 to mint their own NFTs. At the moment we have other features we would like to release first
Stacey Maites: All pieces in the stickers originate from Dillon Boy, our first artist for our NFT launch.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: please tell him that this is great 😍
Steven Meistrich: We will. Thank you!
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Let’s go🥳

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Thank you for the info, let’s proceed with the next question
Q4 from Telegram User @testercoin
I checked your roadmap with your tokenomics and find out that this project is not just about NFT’s. You also have a token with great tokenomics. It says X22 token holders will have governance and staking features. What will X22 token holders get if they stake their tokens? What’s the APY and are there any NFT yields to people who take tokens? Also in order to get governance privileges is it required to stake tokens?
Avron Goss: The X22 is a valueless governance and coordination tokens on the TWO TWO platform, its uses are:Governance: Enables voting on the DAO. Eack X22 token represents one vote as we want to enable the community. Staking: X22 tokens can be staked and will receive yield from the staking pool, NFT and Art sales. Buy Back and Make: A portion of NFT and Art sales will be used to buy X22 tokens on the open market to boost staking rewards, provide tokens to liquidity providers and ensue we build up reserves in the treasury as insurance. Stability Fees of art loans: loans will be partially repaid in X22 tokens. Self Service NFT minting. Participation in emerging Artist funds
Avron Goss: People will need to stake to vote, but only need to stake 1 token to do so. Each staked token is a vote. People who stake will benefit from our staking pools, art sales and our buy back and make function which is going to be awsome
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Where we can buy X22 tokens?
Avron Goss: We are fully subscribed for seed, private and strategic offerings but are planning launching on multiple IDO platforms to get as big a community as possible. We will announce this shortly in our TG group: https://t.me/TWOTWOofficial. Did I cover it all? Any questions?
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Thank you, let’s join Satoshiclubbers. I think is so clear 😁,let’s proceed
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Absolutely👏
Q5 from Telegram User @cryptofollower
Although it is saying your tokens are on Ethereum right now, I see on your whitepaper Two Two is powered by Ethereum, Binance and Polygon. How is the cross-chain compatibility of your NFT’s right now and when will you release your cross-chain support? Do you aim to have both BSC and ETH support on your public sale?
Avron Goss: We are planning to launch X22 on bother Ethereum and Binance. We are in discussions with with a partner to deliver a bridge solution. We love and pay respect to Ethereum, but gas fees are just too insane at the moment. Our NFTs will start on Ethereum, but we will soon offer them on Polygon as well.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: That’s true, how are you dealing with high fees?
Avron Goss: By working overtime to make sure we go live with both Ethereum and Binance! Gas fees are ok if you buy and sell in big chunks, but we want to enable smaller trades too. Everyone should have access as art is for all, not just the rich
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Thank you for the answer, before the next question I would like to answer, are your project audited or is in process to be?
Avron Goss: Yes, we will be audited and will announce the auditor soon.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Great, safety is so important
Avron Goss: We need to look after the community.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Well, is time to go with the last question of this first part of the AMA
Avron Goss: ready!

TWO TWO Remembers Joey Ramone by Releasing an NFT to Celebrate His Seventieth Birthday. TWO TWO and Lynwood have collaborated on an NFT Tribute to Joey Ramone.

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community
Q1 from Telegram User @highpee
If I may quote you, you said the “the X22 is a VALUELESS governance and coordination tokens”. Why do you describe the $X22 token as VALUELESS when it actually has several usefulness? Or what exactly do you mean by describing it this way?
Avron Goss: This is a good point! It has a lot of value from a utility on our platform and therefore there will be demand for it. Of course it can be traded on an exchange (to be announced soon).
Q2 from Telegram User @joson0305
Ultimately, why should we trust and follow you and your project? How do you raise awareness and resolve investor / partner / client doubts?
Avron Goss: There are number of levels of security that we have. From a technical point of view we will have all our smart contracts audited – but that is not enough. We are also backed by well know and reputable investors (announcements soon) who will only invest in credible projects and we are working with well known and reputable artists. We have a wealth of experience building successful businesses (you can see our LinkedIn profiles) and we will apply this here too. We have our reputations to protect too
Q3 from Telegram User @ibrahimfz
Could you tell me a little bit about Your roadmap going forward, how do you plan onboarding users and gaining more adoption for Your project ?. What would we expect in the future?
Avron Goss: Our roadmap going forward is to:
– Start selling NFTs (this week)
– Launch our token on an exchange (beginning of June)

We continue to evolve our artist partnerships and look forward to our gallery opening.
Q5 from Telegram User @BeyondMama
Which do you think is more important:
C. Token Price
If all of the above is important to you, which should come first?
Steven Meistrich: The community. The rest Shall come.
Q6 from Telegram User @ibrahimfz
Many new projects made a good impression at first but were suddenly abandoned. My question is, how will you manage the project and token to gain a place in the market and become a best token in the blockchain world?
Avron Goss: This project is too big to leave! Art NFTs are exploding and we are bringing real talent to this space. Our artists we are launching this month alone include an Emmy award winner and well street artists whose work is sought after. The Jimi Hendrix one of a kind is also just the tip of the iceberg! Note that NFT Art is the only growing area in the art industry today and we are going to make sure we are a leader here.
Q7 from Telegram User @smelekin
I see that you have really powerful background for art but what is your background from defi as a team?
