Karsten Schmidt Imagines a Less “Slot-Machine” Like NFT-Minting Process That Gives Artists More Control

Computational artist Karsten Schmidt proposes a less random NFT minting process, to increase control over generative works. “Instead of a slot-machine ‘mint now’ button collectors get to choose parameters from a pool,” he tweets of his idealized system. Freshly-minted himself, Schmidt’s analysis draws on his first NFT drop (image: De/Frag, 2021). “Once a design trait is exhausted it will be removed by the contract,” he notes, looking out for artists and collectors alike.
