Shape the future of the DC NFT Universe

A guide to DC community voting.

The Bat Cowls project began with an invitation from Batman to heed the call and stand for justice. Each cowl also comes with a promise. By collecting a cowl and participating in the project, your choices will shape the future of Gotham City. Voting is a key feature of our DC platform. Here’s a guide to how it works. 

Bat Cowl holders are co-creating the first DC original blockchain comic. 

In a first for any major franchise IP, DC Bat Cowl holders gain access to a unique feature: the ability to shape a new Batman comic series, weighing in on everything from the logline and title to cover art, characters, events and last words over the course of 57 votes and 400,000 hours of in-world gameplay. The result is Batman: The Legacy Cowl—the first original DC comic book created through community voting.

Fans choose the cover art for the Batman: The Legacy Cowl print edition. 

The DC Bat Cowl community plays a role in shaping the creative direction of new, original comics. And now, they have the opportunity to vote on physical art. In March, we announced that Batman: The Legacy Cowl Chapters #1-3 would be coming to print as a deluxe hardcover edition. Legendary Batman artist Dustin Nguyen is the cover artist. And on March 13th, we fans had the opportunity to vote on the cover art for the print edition. 

Now, Bat Cowl holders are contributing to new DC character and story development. 

As the comic series Batman: The Legacy Cowl unfolded, fans achieved a historic first: becoming the first community to introduce an original DC Super-Villain, The Legacy Cowl.

Now, The Legacy Cowl is the anchor point for a new digital collectible and crafting event series. The Legacy Cowl 1.1 Collection launched on March 29, selling out in less than a week.

On April 5, holders were airdropped an Overdrive Patch to overwrite the collection’s systems. And every month, Legacy Cowl holders get the chance to vote on where and how to pursue the nefarious Legacy Cowls in Gotham City; choosing clues and leads to follow as they shape the next chapter in this adventure. 

Here, fans shape the future.
