Don't trust this site? Mint on Etherscan
If 100 Seals or Eels are minted in an hour then they are rewarded with special weather and the other is punished with bad weather.
Inline with the weather elements, the backgrounds are monthly heat maps generated with matplotlib and 2 years of weather station data. I have a passion for creative coding and generative art with an emphasis on data influenced algorithms.
Each hour the minting flips between either all Seals or all Eels. Seals are minted in even numbered hours and Eels in odd numbered hours. You can choose if you are on team Seal, team Eel, or just leave it up to chance.
If 100 Seals or Eels are minted in an hour then they are rewarded with special weather and the other is punished with bad weather. Watch out for high winds, lightning strikes, scorching heat, heavy snow, or rainbows and stars!
Want to show off your Seal or Eel PFP style? This is covered with a headshot image cropped from the original and included in the attributes (ipfs_url) (example). I like to think of Seals and Eels as an art piece, but it is many things with many influences.
Every time a Seal or Eel is minted, a parallel art piece of the other type is left unclaimed. If a Seal is minted, then there is a parallel universe Eel and vice versa. After the last NFT in the collection is minted, a snapshot will be taken of the current holders 7 days following at 12:00 PM PST. Holders in the snapshot will be added to the whitelist for the Seals and Eels Parallel Universe free mint (gas not included) to claim their long lost seal or eel.
I hope for each Seal and Eel to be appreciated as NFT art. There are creative coding and generative art influences
including data influenced algorithms. This was also created with dimensions which should be decently printable:
