Finally, the Life in Our Mind sale is over. They will reveal themselves on the 1st of November at 10 am EST and evolve for the next 100 days. So now’s the time to make sure these NFTs grow in the best possible way - so we’ve come up with 7 things you can do in order to make sure your LIOM grows into its most unique, beautiful self in the most effective way possible.
❶ Don’t sell it
LIOM NFTs evolve as long as they stay in the collectors' wallet and are not put up for sale — they gain new Boids in their formations and gradually reveal the traits of their pre-existing ones. When put on sale, NFTs stop growing, but they continue to evolve in the new owner's wallet immediately after purchase.
During their evolution process, all Boids may go through the same stages but at different, individual speeds:
- A Boid is added to the NFT.
- Its decorative pattern is revealed.
- The pattern may reveal special material (silver, gold, pearl etc).
- The whole Boid could potentially change its colour to a special material.
The Evolution Mechanics here reward the holding of LIOM NFTs, rather than the typical trend common in the NFT space of simply flipping the items. So, the longer you hold onto a LIOM NFT, the more complex, beautiful, rare, and precious it becomes.
❷ Add NFTs from other collections in your wallet
There are 60 major NFT collections and partners that give unique patterns to the Boids — rare decorative materials that represent other NFTs in the owner's wallet. Here is a complete list of them:
Art Blocks Curated Collection, Autoglyphs, Azuki, BAKC, BAYC, Chimpers, CloneX, Cool Cats, Creature World, CrypToadz, Cryptopunks, CyberBrokers, CyberKongz, Doodles, Fingerprints DAO (members wallets), Flamingo DAO (members wallets), ForeverBots, Friends with Benefits (members wallets), goblintown.wtf, Gutter Cats, Invisible Friends, Ksoids by Danil Krivoruchko, MAYC, Meebits, MFers, MOAR by Joan Cornella, Moon Phases by Jeff Koons, Moonbirds, Murakami Flowers, nouns.wtf, OG:Crystals by Michael Joo and Danil Krivoruchko, OnChainMonkey, Otherdeed, Outland (Elemental by Fang Lijun and Fragments by James Jean), Pace Verso (teamLab Matter is Void, Glenn Kaino Pass the Baton, and Verso VIP), Pace x Art Blocks, Pleasr DAO (members wallets), Proof Collective, Psychedelics Anonymous, Regulars, rektguy, The Currency Damien Hirst, Tom Sachs Rocket Factory (Tom Sachs Rockets, Tom Sachs Components, Tom Sachs Mars Rocks), TRLab (David Ariew x Tatler China, AI 2041, Exploding the Self, YDF Packets, YDF Fireworks, Imagine This, Vogue Meta Ocean), VeeFriends, World of Women, XCopy, [ mxtter ], (member wallets), 89 seconds Atomized by Eve Sussman.
Having OG:Crystals with collab traits works as a substitute for actual NFTs from these collections, giving the LIOM NFTs the same Boid patterns.
❸ Buy several LIOM NFTs
All the NFTs will eventually reach their complete and final form, but those who gain completely evolved NFTs earliest will presumably be able to sell them for more. Having more than one LIOM NFT in the wallet boosts evolution speed for all of them — so there is good reason to hold onto more than one!
❹ Make sure you have OG:Crystals in your wallet
Having OG:Crystals with collab traits (Apes, Cryptopunks, Meebits, etc.) works as a substitute for actual NFTs from these collections, giving the LIOM NFTs the same Boid types. Also, owning OG:Crystals gives a small boost to the Boid’s evolution speed.
❺ Transfer the LIOM NFT to your other wallet
Since some NFT features are predefined by the characteristics of the owner’s wallet, it may make sense to transfer the NFT to your other wallet if you have more than one. Maybe your second wallet will boost the evolution spead or bring you some rare traits, who knows.
❻ Stop it whenever you want to
In fact, you don’t have to wait until your LIOM NFT goes through the entire cycle of evolution. If you already feel satisfied with its looks and don’t want to proceed any further, you may lock it at any time with the on-demand option at OG.Art platform.
And if you later change your mind? No worries! You can always unlock it. Remember, though, you can only make changes until the whole NFT Collection evolution process is finished and the Mother Flock obtains the final sum and appearance of its elements.
❼ Keep your fingers crossed
Some NFT properties are affected by the buyer's wallet:
— Evolution speed.
— Collaboration Patterns on the Boids from other NFTs in the owner's wallet.
— Special pattern materials distribution (% of regular/silver/gold/pearl). This property is defined on mint, changing hands on secondary market will not influence it.
— Special Boid materials % (for example, completely gold NFT). This property is defined on mint, changing hands on secondary market will not influence it.
But there is also an element of luck because some other NFT properties are predefined, such as:
— The Boids shape
— The Maximum Boids number
— The Boids' Formation shape (e.g a circle, triangle, square, infinity, etc)
— Their Initial evolution progress (for example, some NFTs could be born with 5%, some with 30% progress)
— The NFT colour scheme (flat, rainbow, gradient, etc)
Also, LIOM NFTs can contain randomly distributed qualities such as high evolution speed, or higher Boid number limits. So, keep your fingers crossed to get the rarest traits and, most importantly, have fun with it!
