Each AstroSapiens NFT is unique with some having rarer attributes than others. The attributes include different hairstyles, expressions, earrings, blazers, shirts, chains, pendants, and astrophotos. Keep an eye out for holographics.
Check the attributes on OpenSea to see exactly how rare they are. Also, be aware that every AstroSapiens NFT has a special high resolution astrophoto which is viewable on this website with wallet access.
The rarest AstroSapiens NFTs are the ‘Galactics’. This is an extraordinary set that can be immediately identified by their ultra-rare colors and color-matched attributes. Each Galactic has a unique style, for example ‘Gamma Starburst’, that is not shared with any other AstroSapiens NFT.
There are only 10 Galactics in the Futurist Series so if you get one, you're one of the extremely lucky few. Every owner of a Galactic has access to 2 special high resolution astrophotos which are viewable on this website with wallet access.
