What is AI art, and how has it impacted NFTs? This is the beautifully bizarre story of Google’s AI and how it breathes new life into 10,000 Bored Ape NFTs.
Artificial intelligence in the art uses sophisticated and complex programs to create art that we humans couldn’t on our own. Artsy Monke is the project we are describing today. Using Google’s Cloud Computing Service and Colab, what was just Bored Ape NFT are now multi-layered NFT Apes, making them dull.
The project’s artist, CrypoGrims, explained that the process involved feeding a machine 10 000 very Bored Apes, and the method used different filters to recreate them or bring the images back to life in a multi-layered sense.
Released on OpenSea, there were initially 400 AI Art Bored Apes, but once the general public found out, the 10,000 sold out very quickly.
The Difference Between AI Art and NFTs
Don’t confuse the two different types of art that have emerged in web2 and web3. NFTs are written in the blockchain and are part of web3. AI art, on the other hand, is art made by artificial intelligence that requires programming to execute functions that result in this art.
Artsy Monke combined the two different types of art. The result is a dynamic collection of NFTs, which were sold at a relatively low price, to begin with. The resale value is expected to climb over time. These beautifully bizarre NFT apes could be iconic for their innovation and become highly sought after by collectors.
The Bored Ape AI Club
Would you like to be a member of the Bored Ape AI Club? It’s simple. All you need to do is hold a Bored Ape NFT license, and you will automatically be part of the club.
You would have the right to use the image on your social media and other sites. You would have access to a network that may support your business as you support theirs. In a sense, though the owner of this art is in the form of a non-fungible token, you get the perks of being part of the community.
Perks of Owning a Bored Ape NFT
If you are lucky enough to own one of these NFTs, you can also have it in print form. That’s right. You can have it printed out and displayed in your home, office, or gallery. The 4K resolution of the print makes the NFT tangible.
This NFT crosses the borders between crypto and AI art and is also going into the world of video games. The owners of the Arts Monke NFTs will get access for free and the ability to earn rewards and maybe even money.
What is beautifully bizarre about these Arts Monkey NFTs is the influence that AI has had in making them unique and the community that has developed due to owning them. It may foretell how communities will emerge when we are interconnected on web3.
