Azuki Plans Community Vote to Revamp Elemental Backgrounds

Following criticism that the art of the Elementals was too similar to the original Azuki collection, Azuki has responded by announcing a plan to host a community vote to introduce variety in the backgrounds of the NFTs. This announcement was made on the project’s Discord stage on June 29 at 6 p.m. ET, drawing a substantial audience with over 1,500 listeners present.

The types of background changes will tentatively include changes in background texture, environments, the exclusion of neutral backgrounds, line-based designs, and graphics with gradient effects.

I don’t support a new BG for the Elementals.

To me it feels like a very fragile mentality.

As an OG holder the value is derived not just from the art. It comes from the sense of community, provenance on the blockchain, being a leader in any sub communities, having a more…

I think the idea of @Azuki changing the backgrounds on Elementals is a good idea, here is my suggestion for one of the water elemental backgrounds.

The exact date for the community vote and the details regarding whether it will involve all holders of Azuki, Elementals, and Beanz have yet to be disclosed. In the meantime, holders are on the edge of their seats, keenly aware that each new announcement or decision could potentially instigate a substantial shift in the floor price.
