Affe mit Waffe (ape with gun) is a symbiosis of human and machine. The original artwork is based on a stencil inspired by the works of Banksy and Blek le Rat, but everything else is decided by our artificial intelligence, the Real Vision Bot. The AI determines all the parameters which are necessary to create the image (e.g., color) based on the emotions and buzzwords obtained via natural language processing from the most recent interviews on the Real Vision platform. Each time there’s a new interview on the platform, a unique ape will be minted until a total of 250 apes exist.

Despite their violent appearance, each ape’s intention is to bring people together. They’re tough on the outside, but soft on the inside. The raised gun shall motivate us to overcome our differences, triumph over our primal instincts, and solve our conflicts peacefully.

The Twoquants love the community spirit that comes with this digital artwork. Each ape will be an entry card to our inner circle, and although it’s still an early project, we are already full of ideas and potential use cases for each of the 250 anthropoids.

Product Details & Notes

  • Strictly limited edition (250 pieces). One auction per day, subject to interview availability on Real Vision.

  • Each ape has a unique story and name related to current or historical events.

  • Design features (e.g., color) are determined by our AI, the Real Vision Bot, based on the sentiment and emotions obtained through natural language processing of the most recent interviews on Real Vision.

  • Each ape serves as an entry ticket to further drops and lotteries. Ape holders receive an additional drop of a high resolution version of their ape to experiment with the design and carry on the ape spirit.

  • Physical print not included.
  • The definition of a non-fungible token (NFT) is data stored on a digital ledger (blockchain) which certifies the digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable (non fungible).

  • NFTs are like any other physical collector’s item, but instead of receiving a painting (or print) to hang on your wall, the artist can use the endless capabilities of the digital space as their brush, and you get to purchase, own, and trade that digital artwork.

  • The technological breakthrough via blockchain is that digital art and collectibles can now have provenance, or “proof of authenticity” — a feature that was previously impossible.

  • Unlike traditional physical art, each time the NFT is sold, the blockchain records that transaction and the original artist is paid a percentage of the sale.
