Each of these Nifty characters were originally developed for a comic strip series that never made it into circulation due to censorship and red tape. But Bitcoin's network is public and far greater than any local newspaper publisher. And Ordinal Theory enables these NiftySats to be inscribed on the time-chain and be preserved forever!
This 12 Volume set has a grand total of 11664 Ordinals, with diminishing supplies in each volume, kicking off with NudiSlugs, (the scientific name of "sea slugs" is Nudibranch). Their digital rendering is fully complete and they're ready for mint. Each subsequent volume will mint successively, with releases accelerating after the first 5 volumes are inscribed. Below you'll see hand sketched drawings of the next 11 character volumes that will make up the full collection.
Volume 1's NudiSlugs lead the pack with 3333 high energy invertebrate ready to party. 2222 MaxiTurdles come in next, and are still shell shocked by ordinals on their nodes. SilkToads are third with 1111 ready to ribbit... and so on and so forth, until finally only Bob is left. Bob is the guy that rescued all our friends from The Enchantress of Altland...now he looks out for the whole #NiftyFam. Everybody knows a Bob. Bob's cool.
Check out the full breakdown in the chart below.
You can see in the above chart, that only 13% of the supply will be available for public mint, with 87% of the total collection being reserved as a free mint for Whitelisted wallets. These wallets qualify by either A) holding 1 of 100 NiftyPasses, or B) holding X amount of $PERQ when an unannounced snapshot occurs.
$PERQ is a BRC-20 token that has been inscribed on an uncommon sat, and will be a free mint for Whitelisted addresses. Wallets can be whitelisted by either A) burning our legacy token for a 1:1 claim, or B) receiving one of the many WL spots we've provided to various Ordinal communities in the ecosystem.
The NiftySats team held roughly 1.6M of our legacy token in the form of preexisting treasury supplies and vested team tokens, but our 4 founders relinquished ALL but 100k each (2%), for a total of 400k $PERQ going to team. This allowed 1.2M of our own $PERQ to be given away. That supply constitutes the Whitelist allocations we freely give out to existing ordinal communities..
Every Grassroots movement requires seeds to be sewn.
Our focus at NiftySats is to build community and make dope jpegs. We want to pontificate all the Bitcoin things with likeminded inscribors that appreciate original art and rock our PFP's. We're excited to get people excited about Bitcoin, using fun characters that help personify and give life to one's wallet and social profile. Ordinals are an immensely powerful innovation full of possibilities, that gives Bitcoin a new application layer for the lay person that simply didn't exist before. Holding Bitcoin is wise. Using Bitcoin is practical. Inscribing on Bitcoin is fun!!
