Soon!

How?

Select your "Normie" NFT, select your "Mutation" NFT and click the "Mutate!" button. Send ADA to the address provided.

How much?

12 ADA. 2 ADA will be returned with the NFT. Effective cost just 10 ADA.

Are the NFTs burned?

No NFTs are burned in the mutation. Any transaction received with additional assets will be returned to the sender and the mutation request will be cancelled.

How are the Mutation NFTs used?

The AI will take metadata from the Mutation NFTs to create the mutant NFTs. The potency of a Mutation will be used to influence the AI as follows:

How are the mutant NFTs created?

The mutant NFTs are created with an artificial intelligence image generation algorithm known as VQGAN+CLIP. This algorithm generates an image from a text prompt. Your "Normie" NFT is used as the starting image and the AI algorithm modifies it according to the text prompt. The text prompt used is derived from the Mutation NFT metadata.

Wen?

Each image takes 10 to 20 minutes to create.

Wen?

Due to technical complexities, mutant NFTs can not be generated in real time or provide a preview of what will be minted. Requests will be batched together and processed one a week. Requests submitted by Friday will be processed by Monday.

What if I don't like the Mutant NFT?

You may return the NFT to be burned and a refund will be provided.

What is the utility?

Art and fun. These will look great on a digital picture frame such as those from NANO.

How many?

The policy will be locked after 5 years. There is no cap on the number of mutant NFTs that can be created or the number of times a mutation NFT can be used. However there is a cool down period after a mutation NFT is used, preventing them from being used more than once every 45 days.

What is the roadmap?

The long term plan is to build out a library of mutation AI algorithms. New mutation features will be rolled out as they become available.

The mutatant policy is created with a 5% royalty. Revenue generated from royalty payments will be used to benefit TCR NFT HODLers and fund TCR communty initiatives.
