A few days before the sale of 1st Edition KOGs on WAX NFTs, this collectors’ guide went live. But the world had no way of knowing actual figures until after the 3-hour sales window closed forever.

In other words, this series goes deeper into specific KOGs details. And by the time it’s over, we’ll have examined 112 different non-fungible tokens. But instead of making an enormous post that makes you scroll down a squillion times, this series divides the entire collection into nine distinct sets.

KOGs Starter Packs contain 25 KOGs, and Booster Packs include 6 — both are (maybe) still selling on AtomicHub. With a total of 6,622 and 6,183 respective packs sold or reserved for giveaways, only 202, 648 1st Edition KOGs NFTs will ever exist.

Now that packs are tearing open — 66% so far — and NFTs are minting to the WAX Blockchain, the secondary market is taking shape.

Amassing 1 of all 3,414 1st Edition KOGs is a challenge for even the most active collectors! But how will you even know what piques your interest without a first-hand look?

Well, you’re in luck because this 9-part series can help you out.

Part 1: 1st Edition Slammers

Part 2: Staff Collection

Part 3: 8-Bit Collection

Part 4: Space Military Collection

Part 5: 90s Collection

Part 6: 80s Collection


Spinning Around the World

The KOGs Countries collection consists of 20 global destinations. If your home country is missing … sorry. At the time of writing, nearly 200 countries exist, and they can’t all squeeze into the 1st Edition. Better luck next time!
