Redirected from: computer-generated NFT

Definition: generative NFT


A unique NFT that is part of a collection of partially computer-generated images. Using randomness along with some type of pattern logic, the generative NFT algorithm combines a number of layers that have been drawn and colored in an application such as Photoshop or other image editing program that supports layers. The layers are drawn to line up so that they interact properly. For example, a series of eye layers must line up with the appropriate area of the face.

The end results are unique artworks that are always a surprise to the programmer who created them. In 2017, CryptoPunks was the first generative NFT collection (see CryptoPunks). See layers.

Generative vs. One-on-One
NFT collections are very popular; however, in contrast, there are countless one-on-one NFTs that certify one and only one unique work of art or collectible. See NFT.
