What’s a Crypto Swatch?
The Crypto Swatch project launched on February 28th, 2021 on the WAX Blockchain. The original collection included 10 different colors: Brown, Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Black, Pink, and Grey. Only ten of each color, for a total of 100 non-fungible tokens (NFTs), were originally minted.
While anyone could copy and paste the source images, they would be in possession of a virtual forgery (akin to holding a print of the Mona Lisa as opposed to the Mona Lisa itself). Only the token holder can claim true ownership.
How to Get Your Own Crypto Swatch
If you were fortunate enough to get one of the original 100, congratulations! None of those will ever be minted again.
If you missed out on the initial drop, but would still like to be a part of history, sign up for a Wax Wallet to obtain a public key (sort of like an email address for digital collectibles), send it to me via Twitter @mjmacfadden (or leave it in the comments section below), and I’ll issue you a Deep Teal Crypto Swatch (learn more about the Deep Teal Crypto Swatch below).
Once received, you can trade it with another wax wallet holder, request another, post it to social media, or even try to sell it on a secondary market like Atomic Hub.
TURN IT UP TO 11
The initial batch of Crypto Swatches were received with a startling level of acceptance and enthusiasm from the NFT Community. Demand far exceeded supply! Thus, I’ve decided to turn things up to 11, bring a new crypto swatch to market, and remove the mint limit.
The Deep Teal Crypto Swatch is intended to be the every-man-and-woman’s NFT—an entry point for anyone interested in Digital Collectibles. Unlike the first 100, the Deep Teal Crypto Swatch is abundant. Request one, trade it, ask for another, and give that one to a friend.

Why Crypto Swatches
NFTs have set their hooks in me. I find the space fascinating, and I’m not even entirely sure why, but I learn best by doing, so here I am exploring every nook and cranny of the space that I can.
The primary objective of this project is to maximize my understanding of the NFT space, but if Crypto Swatches happen to resonate with enough other people, I do have napkin-sketch-plans for a dApp that would gamify the collection experience by introducing build and burn mechanics that would reveal new, even rarer colors, patterns, and gradients!
