In total there are 3,000 Tiny Tardigrades in the collection. There is a preview GIF of 100 examples if you click on the button above. (The quality of the GIFs is reduced due to the nature of this medium).
The collection is broken down into manageable packs of 10, 25, 50 and 100.
Each Tiny Tardigrade will become an NFT when it is possible to do so. In the mean time it is possible to purchase an NFT using the TINY token, of which there are 3000. Details concerning this option will be made available on our Discord or Twitter or our FAQ. The whole collection is stored securely using the IPFS protocol. The image files and metadata are stored on a decentralised storage network forever. They are also backed up locally and on this server.
Information on the trait weights and percentage occurrence within the whole collection will be available soon and we have compiled a frequently asked questions (FAQ) area here.
The TINY token Asset ID is cf4fa516f749c6a57b793c57d0106e4f4a6dfd639c08b1b34560f3c3b9498996
Frequently asked questions
There is a 1 to 1 relationship between a TINY and a Tiny Tardigrade Collection NFT. Holders of TINY will be able to exchange each one for the NFT when available on the xch.gallery (this is our preferred method of exchange).
TINY purchase will be will be offer based. So, 50%TTT+50%XCH = 1TINY. The intention is also to make offers only available to loyal Spacegraders for a period of time and provide a good discount, to reward them for early adoption etc. This rewards the artist and TTT holders equally. We are in the process of sorting automated bulk offers. The initial Spacegrade only offering will be time limited (to be announced). When the time limit is up the offers will go out to the open market at a higher rate.
The process for the initial sale is that discounted offers will be made on Offerbin and SpaceGrade collectors will have advanced warning via the #tiny-offers channel. These offers will be replaced as they are accepted. There will be a few offers on Offerpool. These will be more expensive and are aimed more at providing a value for the xch.gallery NFT token page.
We are using a decentralised Interplanetary File System (IPFS) that serves a number of purposes. It means your NFT is secure forever and the metadata attached to your NFT is also available for cross reference. This also means your NFT will have a unique hash making it completely immutable.
Our preferred method of exchange is via the xch.gallery when the NFT standard is agreed and NFTs can be published here.
The simple answer is no. You can buy a TINY to redeem for an NFT but you will only be able to pick your NFT when they are published. The process of reserving 3,000 NFTs would be laborious and open to error. We feel the fairest and simplest way is to allow you to pick the NFT you want when you can. This will also benefit more loyal and fastidious Tiny Tardigrade members and those that really like our artwork.
The 100 that you can see are examples of the quality of our offering. The remaining 2,900 are sat safely on a decentralised network. They are hidden because we don’t want to enter into making reservations and we want to make the final exchange of TINY for NFT a relatively equitable process. All TINY holders get an equal chance to choose the NFT they want as soon as they are available on xch.gallery.
Yes, we will provide an image of each trait and its name. This will take some time to populate, so bear with us.
At the moment there is no howrare.is type offering. It is understood that xch.gallery may provide something similar as a service but as it stands your only option is to compare the NFT (when you can) with the trait examples and the trait weights and occurrence chart above. Then you have to decide how that is to be done – rarest trait, average trait rarity or statistical rarity. It can get very subjective. We have the skillsets in place to do this but that would involve diverting resource from our core scope.
Yes. All NFTs, whether given away for free or paid for will have a 5% royalty attached. This means we will receive a 5% royalty for every future sale in perpetuity.
Actually, you don’t. We are genuine and want to make a real success in this market, however this means you have to have trust. This applies to most markets. There needs to be two sides to an offer and this implies trust. We hope we have installed confidence in the way we have behaved so far in producing quality items, a professional website, a monitored Discord server and Twitter account. You could also message other server administrators such as The 300, The Zombies and xch.gallery to check our credentials.
