Where to buy KOGs on WAX NFTs

The sale is taking place on AtomicHub. There’s no signup required since AH will link directly to your WAX Cloud Wallet.

Unlimited FOMO

If you’re familiar with recent NFT sales on the WAX Blockchain — Garbage Pail Kids, William Shatner, Blockchain Heroes — you’re well-versed on their limited nature.

Sweet dreams!

Starter Packs — $20 (roughly 400 $WAXP)

KOGs on WAX Starter Packs contain 25 tokens apiece. I’ll define each of the variations in the sections below. But for now, here’s a breakdown of what every Starter Pack includes:

  • Uncommon KOG: 6
  • Rare KOG: 3
  • Common Slammer: 1
  • Special Slot: 5

Booster Packs — $5 (roughly 100 $WAXP)

KOGs on WAX Booster Packs contain six tokens, with the following distribution:

  • Uncommon KOG: 1
  • Rare KOG: 1
  • Special Slot: 1

KOGs vs. Slammers

If you’ve ever played a game of POGs, you already know the difference. The ‘standard’ pieces are stacked up before players take turns trying to flip them over. And the same concept applies here.

Uncommon (denoted by blue stars and numbers) ‘PANDA’ Slammer

Special Slots

Both Starter Packs and Booster Packs contain a ‘Special Slot’ in which a randomly generated NFT will appear. An algorithm determines what’s inside every pack, and here’s what may pop up while opening one:

KOGs

  • Rare
  • Ultra-Rare
  • Foil Common
  • Foil Uncommon
  • Foil Rare
  • Foil Ultra-Rare

Slammers

  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Ultra-Rare
  • Foil Common
  • Foil Uncommon
  • Foil Rare
  • Foil Ultra-Rare

Over 3k Works of Art

Overall, the 1st Edition of KOGs on WAX NFTs consists of 112 different designs — 100 KOGs and 12 Slammers. But that’s not to say there are only 112 pieces to collect. In fact, there are 3,414!

What’s down here in the muck?

Artwork

Because pack purchases are unlimited during the sale, nobody knows how many pieces of any given design will end up in circulation. It’s possible for you to unearth a 1 out of 1 NFT in one of your packs!

KOG Designs

  • Common: 40
  • Uncommon: 30
  • Rare: 20
  • Ultra-Rare: 10

Slammer Designs

  • Common: 5
  • Uncommon: 3
  • Rare: 2
  • Ultra-Rare: 2

Border Types

NFT borders come in multiple flavors. In addition to width — medium, thin, and wide — edges have an assortment of styles:

KOG & Slammer Border Types

  • Common: 3
  • Uncommon: 3
  • Rare: 6
  • Ultra-Rare: 12
  • Foil Common: 3
  • Foil Uncommon: 3
  • Foil Rare: 6
  • Foil Ultra-Rare: 12

Border Colors

Like Skittles candy, KOGs on WAX NFT edges come in a rainbow of colors. Just don’t try to taste them!

KOGs & Slammers

  • Common: 4
  • Uncommon: 5
  • Rare: 4
  • Ultra-Rare: 1
  • Foil Common: 4
  • Foil Uncommon: 5

Numbers + Stars = Rarity

The simplest way to identify an NFT’s rarity category is by the color of its stars and numbers.

Silver = Common

Common ‘DRAGON’ KOG

Blue = Uncommon

Uncommon ‘CASSETTE PLAYER’ NFT

Gold = Rare

Rare ‘ARTEMISA’ KOG

Orange = Ultra-Rare

Ultra-Rare ‘KOG COLLECTION’ NFT

Foils

Now, I mentioned the special foil treatment above but have yet to show you. And to kill two proverbial birds with one stone here’s an example:

Foil Rare ‘RETRO’ KOG
