The Ultimate Open Edition

The Ultimate Open Edition
In this post

Lascaux's free open edition, Veruca Salt, minted out all 1 million editions within two days. Well, 1,000,069 to be exact...

๐Ÿง Wait, What?

Two days ago, on Jan. 29, NFT artist Lascaux tweeted a Manifold link for Veruca Salt, the final piece of "The Nakamotos" Lascaux has caused quite a stir over the last couple of months in growing out their art ecosystem, and this release was no different.

๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ The Big Picture

In a week in which the "open edition" art meta has truly run rampant, this release on Manifold still managed to stand out. The art, based on 6529's iconic Nakamoto Freedom (which has a floor price of 27 ETH), resonated with enough people that even a 1,000,069 edition piece was minted to completion. 

๐Ÿ“Š By the Numbers

Lascaux ultimately reduced the mint limit to 20, although not before the majority were minted it seems (it appears that there are ~5,600 holders, implying that the average owner of Veruca Salt/Free to Transact owns ~179 copies).

Mysterious as ever, Lascaux did at least clarify that a full set does not require "Bullion", which at 0.255 ETH is ten times the next most expensive NFT in the Nakamotos set. 


Full Nakamoto set holders will "receive a free art during NFT NYC," according to Lascaux's tweet
