The Heart Project
The Hearts are generated by Artificial intelligence (AI) and are characterized by their level of rarity which determines the features and traits they possess. These elements include eyes, mouth, headwear, legs, arms, colour, body, and background.
On September 27, 2021, the public sale took place at a mint price of 0.08 ETH and sold out in under a minute.
The 10,000 NFT collection was launched on September 27, 2021, with the aim of giving back to the creative community and fostering digital and physical spaces where cherished projects can get the support they need to become reality.
The Heart Project was created by Stefan Meier and Aidan Cullen in 2021. Holding a Heart NFT will serve as a membership pass, allowing holders to contribute creatively and share ownership of the project's creations.
Speaking on the project launch, Cullen said:
We are working hard on locking in a bunch of artists—a bunch of upcoming artists and some of the biggest artists in the world. We’re going to make a lot of songs and music videos with a lot of these amazing artists, and then release them as NFTs. Then the funds will go into a community wallet.
On January 9, 2022, Heart #6888 with left doge arm, and cloud background sold for 7.77 ETH ($24,500 at the time of purchase).
