Art collectors have played a role in NFT minting simply by deciding to mint and inserting randomization into the algorithm at the moment of minting. QQL takes it a step further with a beautiful collaboration between famed generative artists Tyler Hobbs, Dandelion Wist Mané, and you. QQL provides an interface to play with output parameters, allowing all minters to explore artistic possibilities previously left to chance.
