The bot was launched on Twitter and is currently in an experimental stage

Digital asset management platform CoinShares has released a Twitter-based bot that helps calculate the worth of an NFT. The platform said that those wishing to have a rough estimate of a certain NFT’s market value need only to shoot the bot a simple tweet and it will reply with an approximate valuation. However, some who have engaged its services have lamented the results which were lower than their expectations.

Tweet and a Link

Baptized ‘CoinSharesNFTAI,’ CoinShares’ new toy relies on data from popular NFT marketplace OpenSea to come up with a fair price for a particular NFT. To check the fair value of an NFT using CoinSharesNFTAI, one has to send a tweet to the bot and include a link to a particular NFT on the NFT marketplace.

Explaining the motivation behind the bot, CoinShares said in a tweet thread that the market is flooded with NFTs whose prices are volatile, hence making it hard to determine a fair price.

Bad or Terrible?

Those who have used the bot so far have reported varying results. At times, the bot calculated a higher market value than currently indicated and vice versa. Most of those who questioned the results seem to have received a lower rating on their NFTs. One Twitter user for example argued that the experimental bot “sucks” after it returned a fair price of 0.88 ETH on an NFT that cost 2.69 ETH.

Another Twitter user said that the bot estimation “seems to be a bit off” after it valued their target NFT at 0.28 ETH against a minimum price of 0.48 ETH.

The bot currently supports NFTs listed on OpenSea and CoinShares is yet to announce integration with SuperRare, Rarible, Nifty Gateway and other NFT marketplaces.
