Creator Economy of AI, No-Code & Generative NFTs

How autonomous content changes the way we create, consume & earn from digital media

Section 1: Key Market Trends

(1) AI-powered NFT art collection:

  • Today, anyone can create digital artwork using AI, and mint them as NFTs on marketplaces like Open Sea. AI artwork or generative art relies on algorithms to create unique attributes (e.g. visual themes, color schemes, mood) in each image, therefore, creating rarity in collectible art which then determines the value of the NFT.
  • Eponym is the largest generative art collection on Open Sea.
  • AI Art House is a Vincent Van Gogh-inspired NFT collection.
  • Metascapes is an AI-generated landscape NFT collection.
  • LOSTPOETS made $70 million in 2 hours for its generative art collection.

Section 3: Problems & Market Needs

(1) Democratize creativity:

  • For decades, creating arts, music, and animations was reserved for the gifted, talented, and mastered โ€” or for those who possessed the necessary tools (e.g. specific software or equipment) to express their creativity. New AI tools are making creative skills more accessible to creators, helping them accomplish expert-level creative output in seconds not months.

Section 4: Next Big Things + Untapped Opportunities

(1) AI will be the extension of the metaverse or vice versa:

  • The metaverse consists of digital identities that come together to play, work, earn, trade, and socialize in a 3D, real-time rendered virtual destinationโ€“whether itโ€™s on the blockchain or non-blockchain worlds.
  • As such, there are many components in the metaverse that could leverage artificial intelligence to create an immersive world and virtual economy.
  • 3D software for metaverse: Anyone can build a metaverse building without any design skills. Tools to generate virtual worlds like Decentraland by typing keywords or uploading images.
  • Digital persona: Turn your real personality into an AI personality. Being able to create an AI clone for your digital avatarโ€™s personality including voice, facial features, movement, speech, etc.
  • Real-time avatars: Generate real-time 3D avatars based on the text description input.
  • AI-based VR: Generate virtual worlds and 3D experiences using connected VR devices.
  • Educator burnout is increasing. In a 2022 survey of over 4,000 teachers, 81% reported increasing workload. More than 55% of teachers said they have less planning time due to staff shortages.
  • AI will scale education the way it scales content creation and creativity. This will take the form of AI tutors, lecture generation, personalized educational content, and adaptive learning.
  • TutorEva and Amy is an AI-based private tutoring platform for mathematics.
  • Speak is an English learning app that generates real conversational practice without human tutors.
  • Squirrel Ai simulates human teachers and provides personalized learning plans and one-on-one tutoring for K12 students.
  • is a personal AI English tutor for children.
  • Kimo generates learning content for a variety of domains and content formats.
  • Curators are the new content creators who make a living by searching for the best resources and sharing their recommendations with a niche audience.
  • AI will change the curator economy from human curation to human-machine curation. AI will collaborate with curators to surface relevant content and the curators will focus more on distribution (e.g. branding, promoting, and marketing) and less time on curation activities (e.g. consuming and organizing information).
  • Anyone can build a Google search for X. With AI, the possibilities of building niche search engines will become scalable. Startups could provide AI/ML training models for consumers to build a personalized search engine that is unique to their use cases.
  • Anyone can become a DJ. DJs are known as music curators who make a living by organizing music playlists and playing them to an audience. Imagine if you could generate a Spotify playlist based on the input of your mood, genres, and preferences.
  • Anyone can build a directory website. Imagine asking AI to generate a list of the best no-code software, pitch deck, and landing page resources based on input such as industry, use cases, target audience, pricing, etc.

Section 5: Strategy & Recommendation

(1) Monetizing the AI economy as a creator:

  • Repurpose your content. Make your existing content multi-format and distribute it across marketing channels. A blog post can be turned into a video (with Synthesia), podcast (Murf), social media posts (Canva AI), graphics (DeepAI), and presentation slides (
  • Automate your workflow. Find the right AI tools to automate content creation, editing, distribution, marketing, reporting, and optimization. For example, LogoAI for logo creation; Jasper for copywriting; Loomly for social media automation; LinkAffinity for SEO link building.
  • Become a Web3 AI artist. If youโ€™re Web3 curious, consider using AI tools to create NFT art and mint them as NFTs. You can monetize generative NFTs directly from platforms like Playform and Starry.
