🕵️Slug Hunting

Go Even Deeper into the Sea

All Slugs Matter

As you've read on the Runes Rewards page, BTCSlugs hunt Runes based on qualifying traits and accessories. But that doesn't mean slugs without those traits will miss out on runes!

There is no such thing as a "common Slug" in the NiftySats ecosystem. In fact, there are numerous traits that are quite rare in the collection that aren't listed on the Rune Rarity Chart. For example; there are only 24 Slugs with white backgrounds. Likewise, there are only 21 Slugs that have the Bitcoin Orange Body Outline, and fewer than 30 with various hair styles (cerata).

In time, these traits will come to be appreciated as collectors seek out the more "rare" slug traits, that are not directly associated with rune allocations, particularly after the runes are distributed. But for now, many consider anything not shown on the Rune Rarity Chart, to be "common". However, upon closer inspection, the two Slugs shown above don't have traits on the chart, but are quite rare nonetheless.

Obviously, we couldn't include every trait in the Rune list, as there are over 200 combined features, but we chose some of our most favorite traits, and those that stand out the most visually to receive the higher rune rewards. However, ALL slugs will receive runes, whether they are considered common or not. Here is how that breaks down:

  • There are 1018 BTCSlugs with traits listed on the Rune Rarity Chart

    • At least 65 of these slugs have more than 1 qualifying trait

    • Those Slugs will receive the higher trait's rune reward

    • All lower tiered rune rewards will roll into a collective pot

  • The remaining 2315 Slugs without traits on the chart will share this pot

    • The total Runes going into that pot is just under 11M runes

    • So each "common Slug" will get at least 4500+ Rune rewards.

Ex: You have a slug with a Kiddie Floatie (250k) AND a Snorkel (100k) like this Slug. You will receive 250k Runes, and the other 100k will roll into the pot.

Additionally, as the first collection in the series with the highest supply, each slug plays an integral role in the ecosystem, granting access to all future collections. We will take snapshots and host raffles for free mints for every subsequent collection, and every slug held counts as one ticket entry regardless of its trait class.

By holding even just 1 BTCSlug, you have a chance to win free mints on each of the remaining 11 collections. And the more Slugs you hold, the better your chances are. Plus, we'll take unannounced snapshots throughout the year, and reward holders based on the number of Slugs held. So Slugs have continued and sustained value within ecosystem. Read more about that on the How to Play page.

Holder Verification

Running in parallel with this, are various Discord Server roles you can unlock by holding multiple slugs. You can get these roles by linking your wallets to Matrica Verify, to prove ownership of your NiftySats assets, for the following roles:

  • @Slug Holder - Hold 1+ Slugs

  • @Slug Nut - Hold 3+ Slugs

  • @Slug Boss - Hold 7+ Slugs

  • @Slug King - Hold 10+ Slugs

  • @Slug Lord - Hold 20+ Slugs

  • @NiftyPass OG - Hold 1+ NiftyPasses

You don't have to complete Matrica verification to participate in the ecosystem or to be captured in shapshots, as everything exists on-chain. But by verifying your holdings and unlocking these Discord roles, you will be first in line for various WL collaborations with other ordinal communities, as well as random giveaways, raffles, and contests we host on Discord.

NiftySats has a Matrica business account, that you can access in the #official-links channel of our Discord server. Or you can use this direct link to their site without passing through Discord. Matrica is a global verification platform trusted for token-gating events and servers by organizations like the Sacramento Kings (NBA team), Brave Web Browser, and 2300 other communities across multiple blockchains.

WE WILL NEVER ASK you to connect your wallet or sign anything at anytime. Wallet verification is done directly on the Matrica website; nowhere else. If anyone ever claims to be from our team and sends an external link, this is likely a scam that you should report and delete immediately.

Use only the link above, the one in the server channel, or by typing Matrica.io directly into your web browser. It has been safe and vetted for years, but you can also contact Matrica to verify the NiftySats account if you need further convincing. But again, if you're uncomfortable with this, it is not required for anything other than additional perks and internal snapshots of server roles.

All of this serves one purpose - to proliferate the benefits of Slug ownership. Whether you hold Slugs anonymously or verify ownership for Discord roles, it all leads back to the value of actually holding a BTCSlug, and the internal or external perks associated with those slugs. By holding Slugs tight, you increase the likelihood of free mints and other perks along the way.

And by hunting out some of the more rare traits not found on the Rune Rarity Chart, you are able to snipe and collect some very special slugs that are far from common, and that will serve a multitude of purposes within the NiftySats ecosystem indefinitely. Don't fade the Slugs!
