Crypto’s First AI Video Causes CZ Reaction
Framer is an e-commerce entrepreneur turned digital asset enthusiast who recently captured the attention of Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao by creating a documentary video about him with artificial intelligence (AI). In this interview with DailyCoin, Framer talked about his journey into the crypto space and how he came up with the documentary idea that caused CZ to react.
Gut Feeling Leads to New Passion in Crypto Space
Framer was familiar with digital currencies since 2017 but only fully jumped into the crypto space four years later when non-fungible tokens (NFTs) caught his attention. He noticed that marketplaces like OpenSea were used to purchase NFTs from resellers at higher prices than those of the original creators, and realized he could get onto whitelists by making videos or images about certain projects. This way, he acquired an NFT for 0.25 ETH which traded at 12 ETH on OpenSea after its public listing. His passion for video creation led him to merge it with his newfound interest in crypto and start experimenting with AI-generated art.
Making Crypto’s First AI Video
This experiment resulted in Framer creating cryptocurrency’s first AI video featuring Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao as part of his past story. The video combines actual pictures of CZ from different points in time along with audio recordings and captions generated by AI software. When asking what motivated him to make this first-of-its kind project, Framer replied: “I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and create something unique no one else had done before.“
Learning Curve & Reacting Audience
The process was not without its challenges; however, Framer mentioned that there is something special about learning from mistakes while doing creative work: „It can be frustrating but also very fulfilling if you keep pushing yourself,“ he said. After sharing the finished product online through Twitter, it quickly spread over social media channels and even reached CZ himself who reacted positively on Twitter: „Very cool! I hope people will use this technology more often.“
Although his background is not related directly to tech or coding, Framer managed to carve out a unique path within the industry based on creativity and experimentation. His story serves as an example of how passion combined with dedication can lead anyone into uncharted territories – sometimes without even expecting it!
