The Charm of Generative Art Department NFTs
Generative art is not a new thing, it can be traced back to the 1960s. Fundamentally speaking, the NFTs of the Generative Art Department are not created by artists directly, but by algorithms to generate artworks to express the ideas and ideas of the creators.
“Marriage” of Generative Art and Blockchain
Combining the current blockchain technology and data algorithms, the artists make their creations affixed with various proprietary attributes of NFT. For example, the generative art on Art Blocks covers from graphic paintings to interactive 3D artworks, and the types involved are quite rich. Artists can create an algorithm or script and deploy it on Ethereum , develop various NFT styles of the project by experimenting with various constituent elements, and then perform casting. Traditional art aesthetics and blockchain data are thus combined with each other to produce a new encrypted original thing.
Ringers by Dmitri Cherniak
From visual perception to artistic performance, each of the items on Art Blocks is different, and some of them are also sold at prices similar to those in real life because of their extremely high artistic value. For example, we mentioned the Fidenza series and the Ringers project at the beginning.
For ordinary encryption enthusiasts, the interesting thing about Generative Art NFTs is not only the way it is created, but also the way users participate. On Art Blocks, users can select the NFT project they are interested in and then cast, but until they receive the NFT work, the user has no idea what the NFT of this generative art department looks like. Isn’t it interesting? Yes, a psychological feeling similar to playing a blind box: you know what it is, but you don’t know what it will be?
In addition, Art Blocks has also held a Dutch Auction, which is a reduced-price auction, starting from a higher starting price and gradually reducing the price until it is sold out. Last month, the artist Radix’s Eccentrics 2: Orbits project sold 500 pieces in about 4 minutes in this way, each at a price of 5 ETH (about 16,000 US dollars), which means that when the primary market is sold , The total amount reached 8 million US dollars.
Another example is LOOT, an emerging project that has become popular throughout the NFT market in just one week. It is comparable to the “game of game” gameplay, an open experiment, and the creativity of plain text NFT. Some people call it a project of collective imagination. . From head to toe, the LOOT project has received unprecedented attention. Although, whether LOOT can really be regarded as a generative art department NFT, there is no clear answer. But it is undeniable that its popularity is enough to arouse public attention to the relationship between NFT and generative art!
Investment art and investment value
Perhaps some people would think that this kind of interesting price-cutting auction operation will reduce heat and demand, no, not at all. In addition to collections, many successful bidders quickly went online to the secondary market to change hands. For example, they put them on OpenSea for a mark-up. Such a “collection hobby” has suddenly become a kind of “sweet and sweet” investment tool.

According to media reports, OpenSea, the largest NFT trading platform on Ethereum, has just released its mobile app, which is simultaneously launched on the Apple and Google app stores to better serve its users. According to The Block data, OpenSea was the trading platform with a transaction volume of more than 1 billion U.S. dollars in the first month last month. At the same time, most of the NFT transaction volume this month came from the OpenSea platform.

Those who watch the excitement don’t stand outside
The excitement of the NFT market has also attracted many traditional industries and large companies to test the waters.
From Visa’s official announcement that it had purchased a Cryptopunk to support creators, collectors and artists to jointly promote the commercial development of NFT; to the cover of cryptocurrency-themed journal NFTs designed by Fortune magazine and digital artist pplpleasr (the series total 256) have sold more than 200 pieces, each with 1 ETH. In addition to donating income to non-profit organizations, “Fortune” magazine will also temporarily hold ETH, which will not be exchanged for US dollars. This shows the magic of NFTs and cryptocurrencies.
