Bird Invents an Entirely New Type of NFT
Non-Fungible Tokens have continued to draw excitement from across the crypto community, even attracting many non-crypto users into the space. Like any new technology, we’ve only begun to scratch the surface of what NFTs are capable of. And now, Bird’s researchers have developed the first of a new class of NFTs: the Analytic NFT or aNFT.
Bird’s researchers have developed the first of a new class of NFTs: the Analytic NFT or aNFT.
This new methodology combines algorithmic trait generation with Bird’s proprietary wallet analytics. This new type of NFT has the capability of incorporating analysis of a connected wallet’s transaction history into an aNFT’s minting algorithm. So while an element of chance still remains, NFT creators can target certain types of users with additional marketing incentives, generative traits and much more.
Bird’s first aNFT series dropping later this month will showcase components of our Investor Scoring product, which remains the primary development focus of our company. Our researchers are currently engaged in the feature engineering stage of development and certain variables are ready for use. These variables pertain to investor holding behaviors.
Bird’s first aNFT will reward traders that tend to hold investments longer
So Bird’s first aNFT will reward traders that tend to hold investments longer by increasing the likelihood that rarer traits will be contained in the NFT that they mint. More details regarding the drop are listed at the end of this article. But before we move on, here’s a sneak preview at our very own cross-chain NFT minting platform shown connected to the Solana network via the Phantom.app wallet. Like all of Bird’s tech, it’s been built from the ground up by our kick-ass development team.
Consistent with Bird’s vision to empower web3 developers, we’ve already begun talks with major NFT platforms to adopt this exciting new technology. These teams quickly saw the potential of building aNFTs using on-chain analytics and we’re thrilled to be in a position to support their goals to continue innovating. The Analytic NFT platform integration provides Bird with yet another avenue for business development and growth, further establishing us as the prime business-to-business analytics platform.
Thanks to the hard work of our data science researcher Ahmed, we’ll be sharing new and exciting research, much of which the industry hasn’t yet seen. Since we’re currently focused on developing our investor scoring products, our initial findings describe relationships between investing behaviors and investment performance.
Below is a chart from analysis of Binance Smart Chain investment behaviors. In this graphic, a clear relationship is seen between the average length of time that an investor holds a given investment (vertical axis) and the size of their total BNB portfolio (horizontal axis). The chart suggests a strong correlation between these two variables and we can interpret this to say that investors with larger holding (e.g., greater investment performance) tend to hold their investments for longer periods of time.
Marketing, Growth, Brand
The full product suite of Bird’s analytics products is ready to deploy on our website. Each product — Launchpad Score, Ecommerce Wallet Analytics, DeFi Credit Score and Oracle Analytics will have their own dedicated page itemizing the details of our value proposition for each platform. These pages will enable us with a more targeted partner outreach, which continues to be one of our main areas of focus.
To ensure that those discovering Bird for the first time have a clear and current understanding of our value proposition, we’ll continue to expand on our website as our research and development continues.
We have locked in a number of YouTube reviews with some channels that have a great community following them to go over the details of our products and Bird’s narrative as the analytics oracle for the blockchain. At the moment we have firmed up deals with BitcoinBros, LiteLiger and 2 Minute Alts.
We continue to work towards driving our narrative; Bird is the one and only data analytics oracle for the blockchain.
The combined reach of all 3 channels will have an audience of over 40,000 subscribers. In addition to publishing content on their YouTube channels, some manage their own communities as well, spreading the word of Bird to new and active crypto communities. Each of the video reviews will be published sequentially over the course of the next few weeks as we begin ramping up our marketing efforts leading up to our aNFT mint date.
Interviews and AMAs
Over the last few weeks and months we’ve been engaging various YouTube and Telegram communities in our effort to expand the breadth of our outreach. Building bridges with some of the most active online crypto communities, both big and small, has helped make Bird what it is today.
In the recent past we’ve had an interview with David King of Crypto Power Talk. He has taken an interest in Bird’s value proposition as the only data analytics oracle for the blockchain and invited Bird’s CEO Daniel Stephens onto the show to do a live one-on-one interview. David’s discussion with Daniel was intelligent and thought provoking, asking great questions that had Daniel expand on many of our projected goals for Bird’s analytics engine and delivery of our analytic products to dApp developers.
To watch Daniel’s interview with David King of Crypto Power Talk click here.
Daniel also took part in a few Telegram community group AMAs with tehMoonWalker, one of the most well known crypto community groups in the space. tehMoonWalker is known for finding low-cap gems that are still relatively out of the mainstream, providing their community with opportunities to do research and learn about projects that are still flying under the radar. They’ve appeared on numerous well known crypto live shows to discuss their technical and fundamental analysis and reveal new low-cap gems that have been discovered through their research efforts.
Another AMA which Daniel recently took part in was with the Nerd Quarters, another group of intelligent and technical crypto investors and enthusiasts, which, as their name suggests got very “nerdy” in the best way possible. The host presented Daniel with an array of technical questions relating to Bird’s analytics, machine learning, deep learning models, blockchain oracles and more.

We have more AMA sessions planned for the near future, which we’ll let our community know about so everyone can join in on the fun learning more about Bird’s most recent developments as well as participate in question and answer sessions with Dan.

Business Development, Partnerships, Listings
This past month, Bird’s leadership convened in London for a week of meetings and team building. Despite travel restrictions and busy schedules, the team felt it was critical to gather in-person because the company has begun to grow much faster, with this pace only expected to accelerate in the coming weeks. The time was quite productive and future meetings such as this are already being discussed.
To include our community in this occasion, albeit in a very small way, we have a mini contest with $100 in Bird tokens up for grabs. The first person to DM us on twitter with the significance of this London landmark will take home the prize, as well as the wholehearted respect of our CEO, Daniel, who checked off one of life’s bucket list items with a visit to this spot.
Hint: using your powers of deduction, you’ll likely find that the solution is quite elementary.
Community Engagement, FAQ
Bird is going back to school! Each of us in the Bird Nest believes that anyone in the industry, whether you’re an investor or a developer, can play a role in furthering the mainstream adoption of this technology that we all love so much. One place that starts is in educating others. We’re doing our part as our CEO, Daniel, has agreed to give a talk at Nova Southeastern University on November 3rd. NSU is an accredited doctoral university with over 20,000 students and a $175M endowment based in Florida. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to speak to the next generation at such an important time in their careers.
To reward our amazing community and also show off some of our tech, Bird is planning two separate NFT programs:
- An airdrop just for our community members of a Bird-branded NFT
- A mint open to everyone showcasing the first-ever Analytic NFT, Bird’s proprietary analytics based minting technology
To learn more about each of these programs, read on.
Bird’s official NFT series is here! We are launching on the Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Solana networks. An initial set of limited edition Bird NFTs will be airdropped to the first BIRD token holders to have bridged their BIRD tokens over to their BSC and Solana wallets. We’ll also be selecting our longest continual holders on the Ethereum network for this airdrop.
So to summarize:
- 5 Ethereum NFTs to our longest continual holders of BIRD on the ETH network
- 5 Solana NFTs to the first users to bridge to the SOL network
- 5 Binance Smart Chain NFTs to the first users to bridge to the BSC network
If you don’t happen to be in one of these groups, don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you. Bird will be holding an official gleam.io competition which will give all members of our community the chance to win their very own, limited edition Bird NFT.
In order to participate, head over to our official gleam.io competition page at https://gleam.io/ChWKW/bird-nft-airdrop-limited-edition-first-series
The competition officially launches on Monday October 4th at 00:00 UTC and runs until Thursday October 14th at 23:59 UTC. Winners of the competition will be contacted to verify their identity and then airdropped their limited edition Bird NFTs directly to their wallets.
The first ever aNFT Mint
The blockchain’s first Analytic NFT mint is here! As mentioned above, the big brains in the Bird Nest have developed an entirely new class of Non-Fungible Token, the Analytic NFT. The aNFT is the first use of wallet data analytics in conjunction with the NFT minting process. We believe that the NFT sector has just begun to ramp up and that the surface has only just begun to get scratched. It was recently announced that Twitter will be integrating NFT validation to their platform. TikTok just this week announced their own line of NFTs. Celebrities, artists and sports stars are all joining in on the fun by launching their own series of NFTs or working with established NFT platforms and brands.
Analytic NFTs bring a utility component over to the blockchain’s most recent innovative and mainstream development.
Bringing a utility component over to the blockchain’s most recent innovative and mainstream development is additional proof that Non-Fungible Tokens are here for the long run and that aNFTs are just the beginning of Bird’s involvement in this sector of crypto which is taking the mainstream by storm. More information with details of our aNFT mint will be released in the coming days and weeks as we continue to finalize our own NFT minting platform and aNFT series.
We’re also finalizing our aNFT wallet analytics API to enable other NFT platforms to integrate our technology as we continue to work our way towards proliferating the crypto industry with the “Powered by Bird Analytics” moniker, providing the space with valuable data analytic tools and products. We’ve had multiple projects express their interest in using our aNFT API for their own platforms. Expect more news on the business growth and development fronts in the near future relating to our technological integrations.
Stay tuned as we continue on this exciting path in our technological journey as the blockchain’s one and only data analytics oracle. We’ve only just begun.
Bird is empowering dApp developers to create the Web3.0 UX of the future by developing wallet-level machine learning prediction products that are accessible within a permissionless, decentralized on-chain oracle. Developers that integrate with our products can, for example, offer variable defi loans or launchpad investment terms based on Bird’s analysis of the wallet’s past behaviors as well as off-chain data streams.
Behavioral prediction products fueled the growth of Web2.0 companies such as Google and Facebook, but centralization had led to power and profit disparities. Combining the power of ML with open and decentralized technologies will enable Bird to create an entirely new tech business model. Operational decisions such as how sensitive data are used and what user behaviors are analyzed can be made by the community (i.e, token holders), with community profit-sharing serving to align the long-term incentives of Bird administrators and ecosystem users.
