In the booming region of non-exchangeable tokens, a new expansion is about to begin with Sophia’s robot auctioning off its NFT digital artworks.

According to the announcement on Monday, the human social robot will host the NFT auction on March 23rd via the Nifty Gateway platform.

Sophia’s NFTs are said to be based on artwork by Andrea Ponachito from Gallery IV, a Los Angeles gallery responsible for curating the collection.

As part of the auction on March 23, several artworks from the NFT collection will be shown on social networks in Sofia and Ponachito.

David Hanson, Sophia’s creator, commented on the creative process behind Sophia’s interpretation of Bonasito’s art and told Cointelegraph:

“We uploaded Andrea’s work to the neural network in Sofia along with many of Sophia’s latest paintings. Then she created a powerful series of new images, then reproduced them digitally and as brushstrokes she drew with her hands.”
According to Hanson, Sophia’s paintings began during an iterative process of developing artworks, developing a “unique personality” that would also fit the art of Bonachetu.

Sophia’s attack on NFT also likely represents an expansion of robots’ understanding of cryptocurrencies. Back in 2019, a human figure claimed to know cryptocurrencies, but did not use digital currencies.

According to the announcement, Nifty Gateway’s upcoming NFT cut is only the first in Sofia’s series of digital art endeavors. Hanson Robotics and SingularityNET, a decentralized artificial intelligence company, will collaborate to create Sophia Collective.

For Hanson, Sophia Collective is an important step in building a global community for open-source collaboration in digital art focused on artificial intelligence.

NFT’s popularity continues to expand beyond the crypto space, as artists and musicians come to the rescue. Earlier in March, Kings of Leon released an album that grossed $ 1.45 million in its first five days of sale.

It’s crazy that MoonCats, a long-time sleeper NFT group, have recently been ‘revived’. Meanwhile, the insanity has also attracted critics who point to the carbon footprint of the NFT engraving.
