FAKE RARE COLLECTIVE
FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF VERIFIED FAKE RARES
- “First of all, this is a safe space for Fake Rares on Counterparty. Many years ago, humans started issuing assets on Counterparty as names, weird art projects, fantasy football teams, magic-style trading cards and, ultimately, dank and rare-as-fuck frog memes known to mankind as ‘RAREPEPES’ or ‘Rare Pepes’.
In April of 2018 (dates may be fake) the Rare Pepe Scientists retired and left us pondering… for years… when the Dank Ages would once again return. After all, many Pepes were left on the cutting room floor, falling victim to the unmanageable backlog or outright rejected, for one reason or another. Many a hidden gem remained in the shadows without a home… until one fateful day in September of 2021.
ANY ASSET CREATED ON XCP THAT WAS NOT APPROVED BY THE RARE PEPE SCIENTISTS IS CONSIDERED A FAKE RARE.
EXAMPLE: IF BANKSY ISSUED AN XCP ASSET/ARTWORK AND IT ISN’T IN THE RARE PEPE DIRECTORY, THEN IT TOO IS FAKE.
NOTE: THIS DIRECTORY IS A CURATED, BOURGEOISE SET OF FAKE RARES. NO WAY IN HELL ARE WE ADDING ALL 298375897597438957 FAKE RARES EVER CREATED TO THIS DIRECTORY PLAYA.
With the resurrection of XCP users, creators, collectors, and the rekindled interest in Bitcoin-based NFTs, electronic art transactions and collectibles, we felt compelled to preserve the sanctity of rare-as-fuck frog memes in an homage to Rare Pepes.
Series 1, Card 1 – The set begins with the FAKEASF community-created card. This asset was airdropped to the first 100 people in the Fake community and serves as the access card for submissions to the directory.
Series 1, Card 2 is the FAKETORCH, another community-created card… and the only 1 of 1 card in the collection. The torch was designed to bounce from faker to faker each week, granting the holder the privilege of adding a qualifying FAKE RARE into Series 0. This series is reserved for Rare Pepe-era fakes. Criteria outlined somewhere else.
