Foil Uncommon ‘Moon’ KOG with Yellow Border #19

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 — 68% 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

Part 7: Countries Collection

Part 8: Cyberpunk Collection


NFT Ancestry

Without crypto itself, there’d be no NFTs for anyone to trade. 

Breedable CryptoKitties put them on the map, but we have the Bitcoin network to thank for our digital collectibles.

Fittingly, the original crypto kicks off the KOGs 1st Edition Crypto set:

Wrapping Up

If you’ve made it this far into a 9-part series, you might be a certified KOGs fanatic. Better still, you’re one of the lucky few that know of the 1st Edition’s existence!

And since the game will most likely coincide with the release of the 2nd Edition, the first series may never see any playtime. Instead, KOGs are for collectors to buy, trade, and KODL. Let the 2nd Edition KOGs enter the fray of “for keeps” mode.

The KOGs roadmap is here, and a lot is going on over the next six to seven months. KOGs is now the Silver Medalist for WAX NFT trade volume on AtomicHub. Should the pace continue, KOGs will soon overtake Blockchain Heroes.

I hope you enjoyed going through all 112 KOGs and Slammers of the 1st Edition! You’re an official part of NFT history.
