Binance has introduced Bixel to the global NFT community. On June 26th, Binance‘s nonfungible token (NFT) arm announced the introduction of its artificial intelligence (AI) NFT generator, which allows users to create personalized artworks using AI technology.
Binance NFT announced that its AI NFT generator, dubbed “Bixel” is now permanently available to its users. According to the trading site, the tool allows users to create original digital art and enter the realm of NFTs.
What is Binance Bixel?
According to Binance, Bixel is an inventive AI NFT generator that provides Binance users with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to generate custom artwork using AI.
By submitting text prompts or uploading images, users can use Bixel AI to generate new works of digital art, which can then be issued as NFTs on the BNB Smart Chain. Bixel integrates the capabilities of AI and Web3 to make digital art and NFTs more accessible.
This AI NFT generator has only been made available on two previous occasions. The first occasion was on March 1, 2023, when a small beta test with a select group of European users resulted in the successful minting of 10,000 NFTs in a few hours.
On March 29, 2023, Binance reopened the service for all users globally, but only for 12 hours, with access granted on a first-come, first-served basis to 100,000 Binancians.
However, just days after the beta launch, the exchange was accused of stealing the AI NFT generator concept from BNB Chain hackathon winners. Community member “ggoma” alleged on March 2 that Binance plagiarized their project “Chatcasso,” which won first place at the BNB Chain hackathon held in Seoul, South Korea in December 2022.
When asked about the issue, a spokesperson for Binance denied the allegations and claimed that “Bicasso” was developed independently two weeks prior to the hackathon.
Here is what is required to use Bixel
According to the information provided, those who want to use the tool must complete the know your customer (KYC) identity verification process on the platform. The exchange explained:
This critical measure is in place to maintain a trustworthy and secure platform for all users, aligning with best practices and regulatory requirements.
Note that everyone has access to AI-generated NFT minting. This phase of Bixel democratizes the NFT ecosystem by allowing all users to generate and mint their own AI-generated NFTs. It is no longer the pastime of a select group of designers or artists. Using Bixel, anyone can create unique digital art and enter the fascinating world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Note that an NFT Minting Fee applies. Bixel charges a nominal fee for minting NFTs. The minting fee, which is presently set at 0.008 BNB ($2 at the time of writing), ensures that the process of creating your NFT on the BNB Smart Chain is carried out correctly.
Here are Bixel’s exciting new features to create NFT Art
Bixel offers a variety of exciting features to support your creative journey and facilitate the creation of your own NFT. These features are designed to make it simple and secure for everyone.
1. Ten generation chances per day – for free
Each interaction will use one of your generation chances to produce a new result, either by selecting ‘Generate’ to create a brand-new image or by clicking ‘Variations’ to modify an existing image. There are a total of ten free generation opportunities per day. These opportunities are renewed daily at 00:00 UTC, so you’ll always have new opportunities to create and innovate with your digital art.
2. The power to choose your style
The essence of art is self-expression. Before creating the AI image, Bixel allows you to choose a design that resonates with your creativity. With nine distinct styles, including realistic, anime, painting, fantasy, and cyberpunk, you can bring your imagination to life with an even greater degree of customization.
3. Enhance your NFT artwork with Bixel
The “Variation” tool in Bixel allows you to experiment with different variations of your image, allowing you to fine-tune and polish your work. It can be employed as long as there are adequate daily generation opportunities. Bixel also has a “Upscale” tool that will increase the resolution of your image from 512×512 to a much crisper 1024×1024. It’s worth noting that “Upscale” does not consume any of your daily generation chances.
