How To Mint Colors
To begin the mint sequence, visit https://color.museum/choose.
1. Choose a color to mint by entering the specific hexadecimal or by using the color picker.
Note: Standard #RRGGBB notation for colors contains 256^3 combinations, creating a pool of 16,777,216 colors to choose from—but Color NFTs are limited to only 10,000 possibilities via smart contract enforcement. For comparison, there are roughly 15,000 colors in the PANTONE color palettes used in legacy industry for color callibration.
2. Furnish a name for your color or use the one automatically generated for you. Maximum of 30 characters.
