As you have seen before many rare traits like knits have many color ways and therefore many mfers with knits exist. There are exceptions like the red mohawk. A color way with only 17 samples, but in general you should use the rarities of a trait category for your first assessment. That is why I added them up. Okay, now you know that for example a “Cowboy hat” (146) and a “Hoodie” (143) are rarer than a “Knit las vegas”(84) if you summarize the total number of the possible color ways of a trait, because if you do, you see “Hoodie” 143 < “Cowboy Hat” 146 < “Knit” 1196. “Do “Cowboy hats” and “Hoodies” have the same floor price?” No, they don’t, even though 143 hoodie mfers exist, their floor price is much higher than the floor price of mfers with cowboy hats.

The “Eye” property is an interesting one, because “Glasses” do not count as an additional property! “Aliens” and “Zombies” never wear glasses, because they have their own trait for the category “Eyes”. The minority of mfers has their eyes covered (2647/10021). The attributes are: “Eye mask” (293/10021), “Vr” (342/10021), “Glasses” (940/10021), and “Shades” (1037/10021).
Shades” and “Glasses” have multiple color ways while the “Eye mask” and “Vr” have only one.
Headphones come in many different color ways. The only really special headphones might be the lined headphones. Almost all mfers wear headphones (9941/10021). “Didn’t you say that this is a mandatory trait?” Well yes…, but I also said, that there would be one exception and that we would start off simple.
This is the one exception.
The Cig has 2 color ways while the pipe has only one. The majority of mfers is smoking (8292/10021). More non-smokers than smokers with a pipe exist (1708/10021 747/10021).
Well done, you made it to this section, where I explain 4 of the 5 mandatory properties, that every mfer (10000/10021), that is not a 1o1, possesses.
The backgrounds are deeply tied to the “Type” of an mfer and are determined by it. There is not much to say about the background category.
“Aliens”, “Apes” and “Zombies” have their own backgrounds while “Plain” and “Charcoal” mfers share the same 5 background colors: 1. “Red” (1846/10021), 2. “Yellow” (1956/10021), 3. “Green” (1974/10021), 4. “Orange” (2023/10021) and 5.
It might take longer to sell it (because only few people want to pay the premium for a combination of rare traits) but you are less dependent on the price movement of one rare trait, if you scoop up a mfer with a combination of rare traits on the floor of one of the rare attributes. There is not a single “Alien” mfer, that wears a “Hoodie” and only one “Ape” mfer that wears a “Beanie” / “Top hat” / “Cowboy Hat”. A good scoop that recently came up was a mfer that combined the two rare traits “Messy black” and “Sub cola (red/blue)”.
Both traits are very appreciated by the community and have their own floor prices. Possible other interesting combinations might be rare and demanded traits in combination with a chain.
How to execute?
If I would try to scoop a mfer, that is a good deal, I would do the following. This is not financial advice, but my own opinion.
Since the chains (property: “Chain”) fall under their own category and are not a sub category of a property like the caps (property: “Hat under headphones”) both of these traits are not directly comparable. “Hoodie down red” and “Collared shirty yellow” are the rarest color ways of normal clothing. Even though 1232 mfers have mohawks, their 2nd and 3rd rarest color ways are quite popular. The pink and the purple color way have almost the same rarities and are both appreciated with higher floor prices than average.
I fused them into one category, because the individual appreciation of the market underlies constant changes. The 1/1 are usually not captured by rarity tables. Most of them are not listed and their perceived value might be strongly connected to the valuation of the NFT project they are featuring.
For a quick flip and a short time duration of days, I would consider the option of purchasing the cheapest mfer available.
“When are the metrics like the multipliers set off?” They are often set off, because sometimes markets tank, because there is a low volume (not many people buy or sell). “What happens now”? People that need liquidity are listing their items cheaper by the day and rares are getting closer to the floor with each day. When interest increases and volume picks up, many rares are closer to the floor than usual, because the people that needed liquidity forgot to increase the price or did not want to. Metrics are nothing but tools, the outcome depends on how well they are used and even if used well, they will give you no garantuee, because this game is about statics and probabilites, which are never certain.
Two kinds of properties exist, mandatory and not mandatory properties. Mandatory properties are: “Type”, “Background”, “Eyes”, “Mouth” and “Headset”. All of the 10000 mfers have one variant of these 5 main trait categories.
Well there is one exception, but let’s start simple. The rest of the properties is optional. 5 is the minimum amount of properties a mfer has, while 11 is the maximum. The background is strongly connected to the type, therefore we first talked about the different types which determine the background options.
Now we will discuss the different optional properties.
Please keep that in mind and only risk what you can afford to loose.
Why wouldn’t I go for the second color ways of rare traits? I believe that it is most likely that the floor prices of rare traits or the rarest color ways of an attribute are more stable than the floor prices of the second rarest color ways of a trait, but my assumption might be wrong.
This is a rarity table, where I point out the metrics, that were used within this guide. I could, but don’t want to cover all rarities, since there are some combinations of traits, that only have 1 sample and I want to discuss the floor averages of rare attributes and rare color ways of specific traits. The floor average is calculated by the 3 cheapest mfers with the certain rare trait (only one sample for apes and aliens).
Trait separation: Head
If you already made your own NFT collection, you probably know that some traits do not work well with each other. For example a hat won’t harmonize with a mohawk, because you wouldn’t be able to see the mohawk or only parts of it. NFT creators create their NFTs in a way, that traits that are in conflict with each other do not appear in the same NFT.
Now it gets a little bit complicated. We could basically divide the collection into 3 categories: 1. “Hat over headphones” 2. “Hat under headphones”, 3. “None”. There is simply one exception, the hoodies. While 75% of attributes of the property “Hat over headphones” (top hat, cowboy hat, pilot helmet) can coexist with the property “Short hair”, “Hoodie” can’t.
The monochrome variants are less rare than their colorful counterparts.
The clothing for mfers falls under the category of “Shirt” and is separated into 2 categories: 1. “Hoodie down” (2174/10021) 2. “Shirt” (2239/10021). Both categories have many color ways. When you read the previous text closely, you can see, that the normal “Hoodie” falls in the category “Hat over headphones”.
Three different categories of watches exist. All of them have more than one color way. More mfers with watches exist than without (7635/10021 2635/10021).
Rarities: 1. “Argo” (407/10021) 2. “Oyster” (1524/10021), 3.
