Backstory

NFTs have been stolen, and a kids card game has been discovered as the only way to get them back. View our first tweets for the origin story. We still have a lot of story to build out soon.

Phase 1 - Core NFT Launch: Saturday, April 17, 2021

At 10:24AM, we dropped one 2 for 1 WAX which was purchased by PuftCreative who currently owns the Mint 1.

At 11:00AM, we dropped two 2s, 12:00PM four 2s, 1:00PM eight 2s - all the way up to one thousand twenty four 2s dropped at 8:00PM.  Each drop that day sold out in a minute or less.

What ensued was ultimately Sanyika.gm picking up enough 2s in the drops and purchasing numerous cards in the Market to blend the game's first 1024 that night.

As a reward for his legendary performance, he was given a Glitched 32 and claimed the Diamond Fins Mint 1 while retaining the 1024 Mint 1.

On Saturday, we lost Mint 1 of the 4, 8 & 512. RIP.

Phase 2 - Radical / Creator Collab Launch: Sunday April 18, 2021 - Friday April 23, 2021 8:00PM

Sunday April 18th, 2021 the Radical was launched, and combined with a tight 2 economy due to limited drops, creator Collabs were released daily. This resulted in very competitive blend launches to get low mints of the Creator Collabs.

Also on Sunday April 18th, we launched the Writer - Finney Coin redemption, just days before burn activation was scheduled.

On Friday April 23, 2021, for our Phase 2 Finale, we had a 2 & Radical bonus hour with several Redemption Collab NFTs from Creek & CryptoMoonies. The blending was intense and resulted in 1 Satoshi, 2 ADAs, 100 Moonie Punks and 200 Creek WAX Trading Cards to ultimately be claimed.

Phase 3 (Current Phase) - Go Global & Creator Collab Sell Out: Friday April 23, 2021 8:00PM - Friday May 7th 7:00PM

After a week of drops once a day and in the Pacific Time Zone only, we expanded to drops that had an account limit and reset time after 8 hours enabling international and new players to play.

Multiple collabs have sold out - notably Diamond Fins (whose last 4 sold out in 15 minutes), Cyber Puppies and Virtual Alaska (who each has one account that owns numerous of each NFT.

WAX Whales LIVE had its Mint 1 episode on Friday April 30th - recapping Phase 1-3 with Sanyika as a guest. The Derpy Cats Collection was dropped for free during the stream and 12 hours later.
