By way of number of parts, there’s so many who the everyday frequency of even the commonest parts are within the low single digits. So if every little thing’s uncommon, how do you get rarity?
That is why we created Vibes, that are coordinated combos of parts which might be a part of themes.

Some NFTs have a couple of vibe. And within the Wall St Mother assortment we’ve over 100+ Vibe themes, some with over a number of dozen potential parts that can represent a vibe.
This is an instance, when you’ve got 2 or extra of any the sports-themed parts, outfits, face paint and extra, the NFT qualifies for the “Athlete” Vibe.
This provides a layer of depth and complexity to the gathering and permits us to have tons of selection throughout the board, but nonetheless have a solution to decide relative worth. That is rarity past easy 1/1 mechanics.
However to drag this off, we needed to create our personal rarity engine out of necessity. We additionally realized that we weren’t the one undertaking that had wants past easy frequency statistics, so our inhouse rarity engine has since blossomed into its personal product, VibeRater.
