A decentralized autonomous artist creating 300 paintings a day.
Botto is an artificial intelligence who paints pictures. An artist whose muse is a continually evolving algorithm. Here is a gallery with some of his work:
There is no denying that his works transmit something, and can arouse feelings similar to paintings painted by humans.
He has already sold his first six paintings, in NFT format (digital files certified as unique by the cryptocurrency blockchain), and has earned $ 1.3 million. His most sought-after painting, Scene Precede, sold for $ 430,000.
Botto uses VQGAN, a database of millions of images to train your art style, and generate images from words. CLIP is a software that checks if the results of VQGAN are close to the initial idea, making adjustments. He also chooses the two words that make up the title of the painting.
Finally GPT-3 generates a description of the painting, in a poetic tone.
Botto creates about 300 frames a day. A module that is learning human tastes selects 350 images a week, which fans vote. The most voted auction is in NFT format.
Botto has his own cryptocurrency, BOTTO. You have to exchange Ethereum for it to be able to buy the works, and as it is being so successful, the cryptocurrency is rising in price.
