Cryptocurrency exchange juggernaut, Binance has unveiled a new non-fungible token (NFT) generator powered by artificial intelligence (AI) dubbed as, “Bicasso”.

The NFT space has been exploding at a rapid pace since the onset of the New Year. NFT trading volumes have soared over the past couple of weeks with January witnessing the highest trading volumes since June of the previous year, reaching nearly $946 million. Recently, Aleksander Larsen, the co-founder at Axie Infinity, a NFT-based online video game, said he believes major tech companies to jump into the NFT industry over the course of next few years.

Furthermore, on February 3, DappRadar reported that 2023 will mark a resurgence of the crypto industry due to the recovery of NFT and decentralized finance (DeFi). Amidst the upturn of digital artworks and collectibles, Binance’s NFT marketplace is also making formidable strides to increase its presence in the NFT space.

Binance Expands NFT Boundaries

As per the latest development, Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, CEO at Binance took to Twitter to announce the beta launch of Bicasso. It will be limited to only 10,000 mints in the test phase. Bicasso is an AI art platform where users can type in simple language to create a quirky image or even upload an image for the tool to produce an exclusive photo. Users can then mint their images as NFTs on Binance’s native BNB chain. CZ tweeted,

“Here’s a fun new Binance AI product called Bicasso.You can turn your creative visions into NFTs with AI. Give it a try and show me what you make with it.”

It seems Bicasso is a reference to the famous Spanish painter “Pablo Picasso”. Since the beta launch, the platform has gained immense popularity among Binance NFT users, who have eagerly shared their creations. As per the early mint data, almost 9,900 users have already minted at least one Bicasso NFT, reaching a cap of 10,000 NFT mints in just 2.5 hours. However, the images were part of the pilot so are not available for resale.
