OpenSea, the biggest NFT marketplace in the world, has introduced a new system in order to identify image copies, ultimately not letting anyone copy NFTs and manipulate potential buyers.
This new copymint detection system can identify exact matches, flips, and fuzzy copies within seconds of a mint, as OpenSea tweeted.
You can check the video from Mitch above, showing how this system works in action.
In detail, the copymint detection system may consider an item to be a copymint if it has one or more of the following characteristics:
- A pixel-for-pixel replica (exact match of an original collection)
- A replica that is flipped, rotated, or facing the opposite direction
- A replica that is resized, zoomed in or out, cropped, or repositioned
- A replica with added or removed borders and edges
- A replica with unintegrated texts, logos, or emojis, either typed or drawn
- A replica that only swaps the background color
- A replica with colors swapped, modified, or saturated (for example, colors have been brightened or darkened, including black and white versions of the original)
- A pixelated version of the original artwork
