FlameID is an attempt at creating globally unique, easily recognizable and visually pleasing images that act as human checksums for just about any data, be that a telephone number, bank account number or even a crypto currency address. As flame IDs will look wildly different with even the slightest typos, a single glance at an image will give you far greater peace of mind than proof-reading yourself over and over and over again.
As for the shootout? Aesthetics are subjective. Instead of creating an algorithm that looks good to us, we've created an algorithm that will tune itself based on what looks good to You! The shootout is a way for our algorithms to compare the infinite visual possibilities for generating the flame IDs and – with your input and ours – tune in on those that produce the most stunning results.
