Bitlings are a collection of sometimes cute and strange, handmade Pixel Art NFTs, living on the Ethereum Blockchain as ERC1155 Tokens. Only 64 Bitlings will ever be made, and each is available for 0.02Ξ.
Every Bitling is carefully designed and animated by hand and has a unique personality. Just like BitCats, all Bitlings are created by digital artist vnctbm.
The idea for Bitlings came from playing with random forms and giving them a face. The challenge of creating a unique character in a 16x16 space is quite enticing. Out of this, Bitlings were born.
Bitlings are originally created as 18x18 sprites with Aseprite. These sprites are then scaled up to 1800x1800 GIF to ensure a high resolution across all devices. The animation consists out of 6 frames. All Bitlings are featured in the same color palette and come in a variety of forms.
Hi there, I am Vincent a 27-year-old Digital Artist. I studied Digital Art & Animation at the Games Academy in Berlin. For over 10 years I am doing all kinds of creative things, from 2D/3D animation, over painting to web design. In 2020 I was working on a pixel art game and in the process created the first BitCat.
After creating 81 unique BitCats and finishing the original BitCats Collection, Bitlings are now a new small project I am working on.
I really enjoy the process of creating NFTs and also creating content about NFTs on my YouTube Channel.

A NFT or non-fungible token, is a token that exists on the Blockchain. It is open for everyone to see, who created it, who owns it and who sold it to whom. NFTs allow ownership of digital art, digital collectibles and a variety of other digital media.
The Blockchain is a decentralized computer network, that allows everyone to see everything what is happening. All data and transactions are transparent, and you can always see who owned what token. There are many Blockchains with different tokens. Bitlings exist on the Ethereum Blockchain, and you need Ethereum to purchase Bitlings. To purchase Ethereum, you need a Crypto Wallet.
To purchase Bitlings or any other NFT, you need cryptocurrency. To hold and transfer cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, you need what is called a wallet. It's a unique address that allows you to send, receive and store cryptocurrencies and NFTs. You can have the same wallet on your phone and computer. You can even have offline wallets and store them in a bank safe. Personally, I use the Coinbase wallet, which I can warmly recommend.
To purchase Bitlings, you need a Wallet and funds on that wallet. With that wallet you can sign in to OpenSea, a NFT marketplace where Bitlings are being minted and sold. Once signed in, you can simply purchase your desired Bitlings through the OpenSea marketplace. Here you can learn more about that.
For every action that is happening on the blockchain, like buying a token, sending a token, minting a token and everything else, there is a gas fee, that needs to be paid.
NFTs are a great way to support artists directly and over the long term. Certain NFT can also hold a great investment potential comparable to valuable art pieces. Overall NFTs are an exciting new Market and worth exploring.
You can see your purchased Bitlings in your Wallet or on marketplaces likes OpenSea.
Firstly, you can truly own them. That's something that was no possible for digital art, and the blockchain is allowing this now. Then you can just collect them, like trading cards or toy figures. You can trade and sell them. You can just look at your Bitlings and be happy. :3
