Pixa.Pics - 16Kb NFTs in pixel art from real life images!!!

They aren't NFTs as they aren't still not published inside a blockchain's smart contract but the fact that it can be diligently stored for a few peanuts and then scaled-up in Ultra HD from that (like a painting not crsip-edged) is very awesome when it is ditched with accessibility, that means, regular people can produce value and make it being profitable out of 100$-1000$ smartphone, very cool.

I had very good feelings working for months on this project that seeks for sponsors to get it's cost bought back, yet the project is complete and 100% free without ads but partners listing soon.

Any thoughts?

Yes, many, not good ones I'm afraid. I mean, the tech sound interesting as always, but... what value does this give to people? Why would I want to buy one of the images? You could make this tech without being NFTs at a lower price and would be more useful. Making eveything an NFT is bullshit and gives no value IMHO

It gives them cryptographically proven secure money in function of which value the market has valued the picture at, in terms of price, in exchange (for it to performs simply) it requires sharing some data as low-pixel preserving better privacy than most of what "they" post on traditional social network, yet beware! Yes it is meant to endure years and stays for centuries on blockchain, you not only own the right to say it is your property like a autograph when you buy an NFTs, there you also own the right that you deserve and it is to know you don't have to worry where it is stored, which state in it doing what, it is everywhere, and secure once for all normally.

Yes, I understand the value people give to NFTs in general, and blockchain tech (even though I disagree). I was referring to this use-case in particular, what value does it give us to buy one of the images you generate? Are the images generated by the system or do users upload their own? Either way, how does blockchain and NFTs give value here? I fail to understand this. Why would I not just store this image in my hard-drive or in the cloud?

I'm sorry if I sound rude, but I really don't like this trend... I feel it's very toxic, almost a scam, and taking advantage of people that don't know better... So please give me a valid reason to use this

PD: I want to make it clear that I'm not discrediting your work or saying you are a scammer. But NFTs and so on have a bad reputation lately for good reasons.

It is a way to have HD image even tho image can be stored very close to a pixel art in size and anyone can upload their own image that they have on their computer to post it on blokchchain which as they are replicated states of blocks with consensus they provide technically very robust systems against censorship, natural disaster, nuclear war, solar eruption damaging IT systems, time-based deletion (the cryptography works in a way it only can with 100.00% data integrity in most blockchain) and most blockchain are composed of hundreds of node fully replicating other state of itself which also means you can fight extremist countries and terrorist squad deleting fair journalism media... this is the value blockchain enhance to the media file, also, meanwhile :

The scam is something that can happens when you do not restrict a system, here we will not verify if the user use images that doesn't negate the right of another person.

Yes when they aren't stored at 1.0 equals 1.0, you only buy the image's name comming from cryptography where it is called hashing function's result.
