The minting process will begin September 12, 2021, on the 8th day and the 8th hour after the great random number awakening. For those of you who might not fully appreciate this acknowledgement, this is our way to honor the great maker of the 8888 items of 8 random numbers. They manifested through the blockchain and have since change the numbers world as we know it.

While we look up to the great maker and the original disciples we had concerns that common NFT enthusiasts were left out of the movement without the necessary knowledge and skills to manually interact with the one true source of truth – the smart contract. This is by no means a criticism but it is our belief that many more will come to believe if we give them the easy access they deserve. It is with that in mind that we have decided to mint our Math For Numbers collection directly on Open Sea to eliminate the need to authorize and claim through calling out to the mystical smart contract.

In the beginning phases of the minting process we will release both nearly free assets along with regularly priced ones to make sure math is distributed openly and fairly. Once the community has a chance to claim these early items we will release the full collection for all those that want to embrace math! We will continue to mint nearly free assets for most items in the collection to ensure no one is left out.

The minting event for Basic Math will be a limited series event. Since there are a limited number of block chain numbers available we felt that it only made sense that Math for Numbers should also be limited. Some of the basic operators have higher limits to ensure that Basic Math can flourish amongst math enthusiasts around the world.

Below is an outline of the quantity of the limit series that will be able to be produced:

Type | Items | Quantity | Cost(ETH) |
---|---|---|---|

Basic Operators | Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division | 999 each | 0.05 |

Advanced Operators | Exponenation Logarithm Square Root Cube Root | 333 each | 0.05 |

Variables | n x y z | 258 each | 0.05 |

Equivalence / Inequality | Equals Not Equals Greater Than Less Than Greater Than or Equals Less Than or Equals Approximately | 498 each | 0.05 |

Math Helpers & Functions | Absolute Value Minimum Maximum Random Round Order of Operation Set | 396 each | 0.05 |

Constants | Speed of Light Euler's Number Gravity Planck's Zero One Negative One | 249 each | 0.05 |

Symbols of Significance | Infinity Imaginary Unit Pi Golden Ratio | 42 each | 0.42+ |

A closer look at item rarity amongst collection

This pie chart shows the total count of the Math for Numbers collection items quantity in relationship to one another. As you would expect the Basic Operators are more plentiful than the other items. It was essential to make sure that Math for Numbers was accessible to common NFT enthusiasts and gave them the basic building blocks to create simple mathematics.

You will note that Symbols of Significance are exceedingly rare in the Math for Numbers collection. These symbols hold both maximum prestige and mathematical elegance in a single asset.
