While preparing for an NFT collection release, there are many things to consider and get ready for. Protecting NFT collection’s intellectual property is the area that needs special attention for a project such as Multiavatar NFT.
Because the upcoming Multiavatar NFT collection assets are already available online through the Multiavatar library, we see a lot of illegitimate NFT projects that are infringing copyrights by using Multiavatar against the license.
Since there can exist only one official Multiavatar NFT collection, in the Multiavatar license, under the Restrictions section, it is prohibited to use the Multiavatar library for NFT projects.
Despite these restrictions, people are making Multiavatar fakes and presenting them as original NFT collections.
The good news is that it is easy to take down similar illegitimate projects from the OpenSea NFT marketplace by simply filling this form.
We don’t bother to take down all fakes, only the most damaging. Because of the low-effort presentation and no official communication, Multiavatar NFT fakes usually have zero volume, and therefore create no actual damage.
In 2021 Autumn, there was a fake Multiavatar NFT project with significant ETH volume. We took down it from OpenSea because it was illegitimate and copyright infringing. Unfortunately, in that situation, people lost their investments as their NFTs became worthless.
Last year, when fakes started popping everywhere, it became clear, that it’s time to announce and start working on the official Multiavatar NFT collection.
Since then, a lot of work has been done on many different levels. The progress is good, but there is no rush with the release. We are thinking long-term and building a strong foundation for the NFT collection.
To protect the official Multiavatar NFT from fakes, we will use “multiavatar” OpenSea URLs, and to prevent scam attempts, we will only communicate from our official social network accounts that share the same “multiavatar” username.
That’s it for now. Take care and don’t fall for scams!
Similarly as with JS and PHP, using the Multiavatar generator in Python, you can generate 12,230,590,464 cryptographically unique avatars.
All three programming languages are object-oriented, so there are a lot of similarities between them. Because of a similar flow of execution (functions first need to be declared before calling them), Python is more similar to PHP than JS.
JS package was created the first, and it’s being the most used by the community. It is considered the foundational package. If any features are added in the future, they will first land in the JS code, and then will bubble-up to PHP and Python packages.
All three packages share visual tests, which should produce similar results across all codebases. More information about testing is available in each repository.
To install this Python avatar generator, use pip: pip install multiavatar
Import Multiavatar in your Python code: from multiavatar.multiavatar import multiavatar
To generate an avatar: svgCode = multiavatar(“Binx Bond”, None, None)
If you have any issues or feedback, post then in the Multiavatar Python GitHub issues section.
Multiavatar generator is open-source and can be used for free, for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. For more details, refer to the license.
Send us links and screenshots of how you are using Multiavatar in your projects so we can showcase them.
Let’s begin the Multiavatar blog with a quick review of the initial Multiavatar launch.
The launch was a success and even exceeded expectations. After the initial launch on Product Hunt, Multiavatar soon started to spread by word-of-mouth. It was featured in many different online publications, translated and shared in many languages on Twitter, and gained a lot of stars on GitHub.
The PHP version was developed, first of all, for the Multiavatar API, which became much faster and way more powerful. Secondly, it will be used in the WordPress plugin, which is planned for the future.
Multiavatar had some early contributions to the JS and PHP codebase, and ykoitzsch developed a Multiavatar version for Angular.
Multiavatar is a long-term project. I have many exciting plans for the future, and a lot of interesting ideas are coming from the community.
Below are some of the Twitter shares, in several different languages. Many thanks to everyone for your initiative and enthusiasm.
