0xmons is an experimental NFT art project. It’s 33% playing around with NFTs, 33% improving machine learning algorithms, and 33% developing a creative outlet for this glitchy, Cthulhu-esque aesthetic. 0xmons are scarce, digital collectibles that live on the Ethereum blockchain. They are inspired by a mix of Pokemon, SCP, and Lovecraft.
Every 0xmon has a unique animation generated by a GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) trained on pixel art images.
This image is then paired with a unique name, epithet, and lore that comes from a generative language model (think GPT-3). The 0xmons NFT form part of a broader ecosystem including XMON, a utility ERC-20 token and sudoswap, a p2p exchange for asset bundles.
Currently, the 0xmons project receives XMON and ETH fees through NFT sales and encoding fees. Users can stake their XMON tokens for XXMON to receive a share of these fees.
