To all our fini fam!

We have successfully revealed all finiliar, excluding the remaining 40 Golden Eggs which will slowly and thoughtfully be released over time. All Golden Eggs are special 1 of 1s.

Only 3 weeks ago, the finiliar main sale was one of the biggest days for NFTs in the recent year. Over 8,000 finiliar were bought in a matter of under an hour! Since then, we have all taken finiliar to over 3,000Ξ in total volume. More than 9,000 finiliar trades or purchases have taken place in secondary markets.

The re-imagined finiliar, that Ed Fornieles originally created in 2016 to represent the emotional states of currencies complete with “weaponized cuteness,” found a home in the NFT community.

The last 3 weeks

  • Main sale was bought out.

  • Meme Contest & 1 of 1 Design Competition conclude with performances from the community!

  • Reveal of the collection, almost immediately after sell out (Spaces from Reveal Day).

  • Multiple owners curate finiliar galleries, exploring the collection (Sam Spike & Trent).

  • Finiliar reaches #2 in volume for the day on Opensea. Placed on the Opensea Front Page - and still remains there weeks later.

  • @danidoesnotxist writes on finiliar fashion.

  • 5 of the 45 Golden Eggs reveal, showing conceptually and aesthetically new 1 of 1 finiliar (Spaces from First Golden Egg Reveal Day).

  • Dune Dashboard created by community member bsh.

  • Fresh animations along with many, many already-created animations start production. Below is small portion of a private, never-before-seen Miro board, of which Ed has created many.

VERY IMPORTANT: THESE ANIMATIONS, ALONG WITH THE SIMPLE ONES WE PREVIOUSLY CREATED, WILL REQUIRE SERIOUS TIME TO ATTACH TO FINILIAR'S EMOTIONS.

New announcements and timing updates:

  1. A sneak peak of the new animation ideations are posted above. Here is a link to “Singing in the rain.”

  2. Previous, simple animations showing “happy,” “neutral,” “sad,” “super sad,” etc. have been shown in the original Miro board Ed created for the project at large. Original Miro board link here.

  3. Golden Egg reveal schedule has been announced. 5 of the 40 remaining Golden Eggs will reveal every 2 weeks. Each Golden Egg will be a 1 of 1, like the opening image you saw on this write up!

  4. Over the 3 months following reveal, we will be working to animate all 10,000 finiliar in a pipeline via Unity to appropriately emote based on price charts. This process requires immense talent and is an enormous undertaking. Please allow us time to get it done. The plan is to have an initial set of animations released at the three month mark post reveal and then more complex animations to follow.

  5. The Team lives in our Discord, as many people are aware. Aside from working non-stop within Discord team channels, and in Miro boards, we meet weekly for a call. Monthly for a vision, general mission call. As well as monthly for a broader strategy call. This does not include the multiple calls a week done with animators and partnership opportunities. This is all done with pure excitement and joy to work on finiliar.

  6. Animations are coming along beautifully as we concurrently create 1 of 1s for the Golden Eggs. Connecting to price oracles and attaching finiliar to the animation structure will be ideally completed within the 3 months time frame post reveal. Then after this initial release, more complicated animations will be added. Finiliar will show more and more emotion towards the price action of their respective coin.

  7. Finiliar has over 12% blue chip owner crossover, one of the highest percentages for a new project. We plan to continue to spread this word and hope you will too! Here is a great thread to get people started on finiliar: link.

The next Twitter Spaces and Golden Egg Reveal

The first Golden Egg reveal was incredible to experience with the community as a whole. We all watched as they were revealed one-by-one and Ed spoke on his inspiration behind them. Link to the Twitter Spaces from Golden Egg Reveal Day.

The next 5 of the 40 remaining Golden Eggs will be revealed the week of Sept 19. We plan to do a Spaces for that reveal as well!

You can expect some remarkable finiliar to be revealed and we couldn’t be more excited! Until then, we will continue to work on animations, continue to build the finiliar project in more ways than one, and make Golden Eggs some of the best crypto-native art yet!
