Kanaria NFT Demystified: what am I actually getting?

Every bird that hatches will be shown on a card.

These cards will indicate rarity (1), the number and type of traits (2), and the bird itself with all its child NFTs (3). Its inventory (4) will list all owned NFTs - equipped, consumable, and other.

Let's drill down.

Bird Body

Every bird is composed of 7 sub-elements, all of which have different rarities and chances:

  1. left wing
  2. right wing
  3. body
  4. head
  5. expression
  6. legs
  7. tail

These are rolled randomly, and depending on bird rarity and emotes will differ from bird to bird.

Bird Items

Every bird also has 7 equippable slots:

  1. background
  2. foreground
  3. backpack
  4. necklace
  5. headwear
  6. left wing
  7. right wing

Each part can equip a specific NFT as an item.

In RMRK, every NFT can own another NFT. So every bird can also contain NFTs in its "inventory" (4):

The inventory will let you hold other NFTs, and equip compatible ones as items. When you choose to equip, you pick the compatible slot into which you can equip it. An equipped NFT may or may not change the appearance of the parent it's being equipped into. See Traits below.

Putting this together, you can roll different birds of different looks and items. This depends on emotes sent to your egg during the egg phase.

Some owned items are not usable on the parent NFT itself, but can still be placed inside, like fungible tokens (1), event tickets (2), or even other parent elements with children of their own (3).

Some items are transferable, others are not. Transferability is defined when an NFT is minted, and will be visible in the UI (4).

Bird Traits

Apart from the 7 parts and 7 slots on every bird, there are also trait slots that can contain special items: traits. The more birds are claimed, the more of these slots are unlocked on all birds of this type.

The image above tells us that at 500 claimed Rares we unlock a new trait level.

The trait slots and traits are represented as Crystal slots and Crystals respectively on the bird cards.

Crystal color indicates rarity, and hovering over them or clicking / tapping on them reveals information about the bonus they provide.

Traits are different in that most of them burn (disappear forever) once unequipped. They are also non-transferable, and can only be minted directly into a slot. They are treated as items in every sense.

Think of these as powerful bonuses, blessings. Meta-items that don't change the appearance of the bird itself, but have special functionality or bonuses that you can use them for.

The RMRK team will be publishing trait sets well into the future. You will be able to buy these, or burn one of the Crystal "vouchers" to obtain them. These vouchers will be given to ALL the Kanaria bird owners in full capacity of their bird(s) - all your trait sockets will be pre-filled with the vouchers in the following probability:

  • Super:

    • 1 Rev Share 0.5% trait
    • 1 legendary trait
    • 1 epic trait
    • 1 legendary trait voucher
    • 1 epic trait voucher
  • Founder:

    • 1 Rev Share 0.1% trait
    • 50% chance for legendary trait vs epic trait
    • 50% chance for legendary trait voucher vs epic trait voucher
    • 2-3 epic trait vouchers

  • Rare:

    • 5.55% chance for 0.1% Rev Share trait
    • 10% chance for legendary trait vs epic trait
    • 10% chance for legendary trait voucher vs epic
    • 0-1 rare trait vouchers
  • LE:

    • 0.16% chance for 0.1% Rev Share trait
    • 1 - 2 rare trait voucher

There will be trait crystals you can only get with genesis vouchers - vouchers given in the Kanaria hatching phase.

Possible traits

These are the genesis traits we've come up with so far.

Commissioned art

Some Kanaria birds will be multi-resource NFTs. Special, commissioned art will be applied as a secondary resource, and owners will be able to flip a switch to set the primary render (commissioned vs randomly generated).

Here's an example of such art by

Future Content

In the future, the RMRK team may mint more items and traits for the birds. These will be compatible with the genesis Kanaria birds, but will never be as powerful as the initial set of perma-buffs.
