As a preface, I will make a reservation that for the first time on Habré I decided to present my debut on this platform, so to speak. This is not about drawing pictures using AI and graphic patterns. Quite the contrary, the transformation of classical fine art into a numerous sequence of neural networks in the final code in its final form. I’ll tell you the backstory.
At the beginning of this year, by chance, one tempting phrase fell into my field of vision – digital art. And since I have been in the crypto topic for a long time, I did not dare not ask how art (be it painting or music) correlates with crypto, and how this happens (and for what))) in the open spaces of the blockchain. As a result of getting acquainted with this idea, and not only the idea, but also the NFT infrastructure (Non-Fungible-Token, non-fungible digital asset),
I was happy to find that I already want to create something similar, but in my own, the author’s performance. In a few words, I will describe that an animal named NFT is a hashed image in any format, recorded in the blockchain network in a format that is analogous to ERC-721 in the Ethereum network (for those who are not yet aware of the topic). Conceived to be, of course, but it is easy to say, but it is more difficult to do. Especially when doing something for the first time.
I started by studying similar platforms on the World Wide Web, starting with the largest marketplaces but it’s harder to do. Especially when doing something for the first time.

I started by studying similar platforms on the World Wide Web, starting with the largest marketplaces opensea.io, makersplace.com, and smaller ones, pixels.art, ghostmarket.io, and many many others.
In addition to marketplaces, I found purely minting platforms, usually themed, i.e. they are only engaged in the creation of NFT cards and, as a rule, one direction. All sorts of crypto cats (it all started with them!), Cryptopunks, and other fauna. In addition, there were a couple of outsiders who created non-formatted NFTs at all, with an eye to automatic scaling at the expense of users, for example, on one of the platforms, unique links on the Internet are accepted for NFT content, on the other, domains are registered, and at the same time a snapshot from NFT. I will not delve too deeply into reviewing the daily growing format of NFT digital assets, but rather, I will finally move on to my idea.
The idea was very simple – any beginner or venerable artists (both digital and classical, with canvases and paints – author’s note) register on my platform, scan and upload their content, after which they receive a free digital copy of their work in the form of NFT- token. The conditional free of charge of such transformations can be provided by blockchains with almost 0 transaction costs, for example, Binance Smart Chain.
The platform is positioned on large and small marketplaces, which is essentially an endless exhibition of art products for the original creator in the global art market! What is not a dream for the author of works, separate galleries of different artists? Dreaming is not harmful, as they say. This market is growing not by year, but by month according to my observations, which can be seen on the famous monitoring dappradar.comHow can this be done with existing AI libraries? Easy, it will take only centuries to train our machine expert. This is ideal, and to launch the platform, I expected to do it in a couple of months, which was not without optimism, as the practice has shown.
