A grassroots movement is taking the Yativerse by storm. Brilliant Yat Creators, just like you, are developing and sharing detailed Yatalytics 📈or quantitative/qualitative analyses of pattern types, rarity stats, and more. Check out these stellar Yatalytics from leading Yatalysts within the community:
These are just two examples of many Yatalytics created and shared within the Yat Community. If you’d like to go deeper down the rabbit hole 🐰🕳 , check out @PuffYatty's mega-thread, a beautifully curated list of top-notch Yatalytics from the Yat Creators pioneering this movement!
Before you can become a master Yatalyst, you must first understand the origins of the Yativerse. The genesis of the Yativerse began with 441 emoji, also known as the Genesis Set. The Yativerse is ever-expanding and uncovered 3 new emoji in Gen Zero and 8 new emoji during the sunrise of Gen One, bringing the current set to 452 emoji. An additional 22 emoji will be revealed throughout the course of Gen One, bringing the Final Gen One Set to 474.
The number of emoji in the current set is a critical piece of information for all Yat Creators, as it is the foundation for any and all Yatalytics. The significance is perhaps best understood through real-world examples, which can be found in the final section of this post, Example Yatalytics ℹ️.
As explained above, pattern type, length, and the size of the current emoji set, are the primary drivers of scarcity (as measured by total supply). The most valuable Yats in the Yativerse are both scarce (low supply) and appealing to the community (high demand).
Below are some of the most popular patterns from Gen Zero, as determined by Yat Creators. All 444 possible combinations from Gen Zero were created within a matter of weeks.
To celebrate these coveted patterns, Yat Labs will be auctioning 18 magnificent Yats, each of which features a new Gen One emoji and one of the popular patterns shown above. Specifically, the auction lots contain two Adoptables, eight Eye Hearts, and eight Repeaters. Check out the lots here! y.at/🖖🌊⛵️!
The 18 Yats being auctioned are incredibly rare, and because they have just one degree of freedom, there are only as many combinations of these patterns as there are emoji in the current set.
In other words, each of the 18 auction lots are 1 of 452 of their respective pattern.
2 of 452 remain today
8 of 452 remain today
8 of 452 remain today
While calculating the total supply for any given pattern type is an excellent way to measure scarcity, master Yatalysts take their Yatalytics even further.
A great example is this tweet from @Yat_Sultan, where he explains that while there are 452 "OG" Adoptables [X👕👖👟], there are only 25 with a human face (27 if you include ☠️ and 😈).
🥺👕👖👟 = THE LAST OF 25 HUMAN ADOPTABLES
As you can see, the Yats in the upcoming auction are highly scarce, but there is one more layer to these Yats that must be considered, perhaps their most symbolic and unique trait.
To commemorate Yat Horizon and the launch of minting Yats as NFTs, these 18 Auction Lots will forever be marked with the “Horizon” Origin property. These 18 Yats will be the only Yats in the Yativerse that contain this unique property, securing their place in Yat History.
Yat Labs has carefully selected our emoji set to ensure backward compatibility and to avoid homoglyph attacks, a deception technique that uses similar-looking characters to create fake usernames, payment addresses, domains, and more.
Now, this doesn't mean we have to exclude these emoji from the Yativerse forever. In order to enable maximum self-expression without compromising security, Yat Labs has created a concept call peer emoji. A peer emoji is a similar-looking or sounding emoji to an existing primary emoji. By owning a Yat that contains an emoji with peer(s), you will eventually be able to choose how your Yat is represented.
In the near future, if someone enters a Yat with peer emoji in the URL bar, the browser will resolve to the associated primary emoji Yat. Try it out by clicking the examples below!
As this feature evolves, Yat Creators will have direct control over which peer emoji are displayed in many mediums and locations. In addition to peer emoji, we continue to work on skin tone modifiers so that Yat Creators can choose the desired skin tone for compatible emoji within their Yat.
The impact of peer emoji is profound as they add emoji variations to Yats containing them. Take for example the heart ❤️emoji, which has 10 similar-looking peer emoji. That is 11 emoji in one!
This means if you have a Yat - say ✨❤️✨- you will have 10 other ways to represent your Yat, one for each peer emoji of heart ❤️. When you include the primary emoji itself, this is 11 total emoji variations for just 1 heart ❤️. Now, what happens if you have more than one heart ❤️in your Yat?
THIS IS WHERE THINGS START TO GET CRAZY! 🤪
Every primary emoji with peers increases the variations of its Yat by a factor of the [number of peer emoji] + [the primary emoji]. How about we play this out with some ❤️ Repeaters?
As you can see, the advent of peer emoji is a gamechanger for any and all Yatalytics. A Yat containing primary emoji with peers has at least one, and possibly more, emoji variations.
As you can see, there are tons of different ways to analyze any given Yat, pattern, emoji, or attribute; all it takes is a little curiosity and some good ol’ mathematics.
We look forward to sharing additional Yatalytics with the Yat Community in the future. In the meantime, please be sure to tag your own #Yatalytics on Twitter!
❓How many 3-emoji Yat are possible today —> 92.35 Million
This pattern [XXX] contains three emoji slots and allows repeats, therefore each slot has 452 options (equal to the current emoji set). In order to calculate the total supply, one simply multiplies the number of options for each slot together as follows:
[XXX] = 452 * 452 * 452 = 452^3
❓How many Yats, of any length, are possible today → 18.91 Trillion
A Yat can be 1 to 5 emoji in length, which means the length is not fixed as it was in the previous example. In order to calculate the total number of permutations for a pattern with multiple lengths, one simply calculates the permutations for each individual length (x, xx, xxx, xxxx, xxxxx) and sums them together as follows:
[XXXXX] = (452^1)+(452^2)+(452^3)+(452^4)+(452^5)
❓How many 3-emoji bookends are possible today → 203,852 Yats
This pattern [ABA] is a bit trickier because the number of options per slot varies. The 1st slot has all 452 options, equal to the current emoji set. The 2nd slot has 1 less option, 451, as it cannot match the first selection. The 3rd slot has just 1 option, as it must match the first. In order to calculate the permutations for this pattern, one simply multiplies the options for each slot as follows:
[ABA] = 452 * 451 * 1
