The Open Sea (1 of 8)

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) were born well before the explosion of decentralized finance. In fact, the largest and most influential platform for exchanging NFTs, OpenSea, began in December 2017, only shortly after the appearance of the famous CryptoKitties that congested the Ethereum network (see also Original 2 in this series). This original is in honor of the OpenSea platform and the richness of the NFT space. It is based on a sample of over 10,000 NFT sales across almost 1,000 collectors over about 2 years. The varied colors symbolize the theme of this series: complexification. The very concept of a non-fungible token is complex, varied, diverse. There are tickets and unlock tokens and subscriptions, game pieces and collectibles and art and utility tokens for naming infrastructure and more. But despite their vivid distinctions, they connect. They can be combined and computed over together with the kind of rich composability of any platform, such as ERC-20 tokens on Uniswap from Original 3 of this series.

This network is rendered by projecting wallets and their transactions on a three-dimensional spherical surface, giving the impression of a vast almost planetary ecosystem. Zooming in on the PDF, one can see some labels for particular NFT projects and their corresponding colors.

Ethstory, Original 4 in Series 3: "0x06012 (Complexifying)"

Series 2 symbolized the several ways in which Ethereum rapidly branched into varied agendas and projects. Series 3 highlights the extreme degree to which this complexity unfolded after 2016. Three such themes are shown in this series: the initial coin offering (ICO) peak, decentralized finance (DeFi), and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This series is the most colorful, indicating this complexification of form and content across the Ethereum platform. Ethereum's massive and highly innovative developer community led to a complex tapestry of projects. All 4 originals are based on actual data or documentation, structured and laid out in a manner that produces visuals that relay these major themes. Each original was generated using thousands of pieces of data drawn from original sources, including Ethereum documentation and on-chain activity.

Ethstory is a data visualization project using network and other diagrams to describe the history of Ethereum. Each original uses thousands of data points from on-chain and other resources creating symbolic depictions of Ethereum's intriguing history. On OpenSea, owners (and only owners) unlock a password-protected vector-quality PDF, permitting printing, zooming, etc. to any resolution.

Ethstory is complete. Thanks to collectors. Thanks so much for your support. Over 30 ETH have been donated to various nonprofits. Extensive detail about this project including charitable donations from initial sales can be found on the main website: ethstory.eth.link
