Latest ChainFaces Arena News
ChainFaces Arena creator Nate Alex detailed the upcoming BTC ordinal migration mini-project, in a tweet thread from today.
🔙 Back It Up
ChainFaces Arena, created by @natealexnft, is an on-chain game that updates an NFT's metadata in real-time. Chainfaces (collection on OpenSea here) sold out at the beginning of January 2022, at a mint price of 0.069 ETH. The game mechanics are explained in further detail in @bckrissy's tweet 🧵 from last year.
❗ Why It Matters
Nate Alex acknowledged that the hype around ordinals has cooled, but wanted to give ChainFaces Arena collectors something to explore with their NFTs. And as he himself was early to ETH NFT experimentation, he wanted to continue the tradition and give CFA holders a chance to participate in early BTC migration.
🔍 The Details
- The pieces received on BTC will preserve the deposited faces' characteristics.
- Minimum amount of faces needed to lock is 4, which creates a 2x2 grid.
- Due to gas constraints, there is a tie-in for the amount of scars that can be generated (based on the average arena score of the deposited faces).
- There will be a max supply of 420, but Nate Alex noted he's expecting much less and wanted a hard cap to protect scarcity.
- Relevant dates:
- February 26th - Lock contract deployed on mainnet
- February 27th - Deposits open
- March 13th - Deposits close
- March 14th - Ordinals transferred to holder BTC wallets
🎬 Take Action
Those hoping to receive a BTC face grid will need a valid bitcoin address, and at least 4 Faces.
CFA holders can lock their Faces on ETH between February 27th - March 13th, after which they will be locked forever. The BTC face grid will then be inscribed and dropped in their BTC wallet on March 14th.

Nate Alex, the creator of Chainfaces Arena, says holders of fallen Arena NFTs have until about 4:20 p.m. ET Thursday to revive their fallen warriors.
If a user's NFT died in Chainfaces Arena, they'll have to resurrect the NFT in the Catacombs on the Chainfaces HD website to receive their undead character, Nate Alex said.
ChainFaces Arena announced the opportunity to bring your original NFTs that died in the arena back to life. Holders will be able to upgrade their NFT into a ChainFaces HD up until the reveal, with the date yet to be announced. Once you have wrapped your ChainFaces NFT, you will not be able to unwrap it back into the original NFT.
Holders of a ChainFaces Arena will need to use their "ChainFaces HD - Elixir of The Ancient" to revive their NFT and get a Chainfaces HD. ChainFaces HD will also have an Arena, like the original collection, but instead of winning ETH for surviving, users are rewarded points that can be used to redeem for items such as merchandise.
ChainFaces HD, which was supposed to reveal May 5, will be delayed a "few more days" due to more than half of the project's team suffering from illnesses, including COVID, according to a statement in the project Discord.
Anyone with a ChainFaces Arena NFT in their wallet could have claimed an elixir which could have been used to upgrade "living" NFTs to ChainFaces HD NFTs.
ChainFaces Arena released its Alchemist Table game today at 4:20 p.m. ET. Holders of living ChainFaces Arena NFTs can follow this link, to join the quest and claim their exlir.
Elxir will be utilized to upgrade live Chainface Arena NFTs to Chainface HD NFTs. The first member to solve the puzzle will get a free ChainFace Arena NFT and an additional exlir.
Nate Alex also revealed that the "next iteration of the arena [will release] in the near future."
After much teasing, an official announcement came from Nate Alex and the Secret Project team about the future of Chainface Arena NFTs.
First, the snapshot for Chainface Arena NFT holders was completed and any holder with a CFA NFT in their wallet will be eligible to claim an elixir NFT starting tomorrow (4/20). This elixir NFT can be used to upgrade live Chainface Arena NFTs to Chainface HD NFTs.
A delay in the building will give holders up to two weeks to claim their elixir NFT, though Alex teased potential benefits for the first wallet to solve the mystery and claim the elixir token.
This delay also impacts the revival of dead Chainface Arena NFTs, though this will be an option in the near future.
More information regarding alive and dead CFA NFTs, original Chainfaces, and the elixirs will be shared shortly.
Last but not least, the long announcement from the team did confirm an eventual Chainface Arena sequel.
An AMA will be held tomorrow for any parties looking to gather more information.
