Thank you to Dom for the incredible inspiration and gift of Loot.
Based on the item data and fundamental logic of the smart contract, the evidence has led us to a hair-raising epiphany hidden in the Loot data and the smart contract:
In the beginning, before the bags were shuffled, these Loot bags were carried by 2,540 first Adventurers, the. TheseGenesis Adventurerswere the most powerful adventurers from each of the 16 Orders, sent out to save the Lootverse.Genesis Adventurers
Our mission as a community:
To re-organize each Order's full set of Genesis Loot bags back to their original state. With the perfectly-reassembled bags in hand, we can resurrect theto defend and protect our Orders for the game ahead. Every player who resurrects a GA receives their Genesis Loot bag.Genesis Adventurers
The Genesis Project, explained:
With pieces, a puzzle
Through randomness, intent
From entropy, Order
At hyperspeed since nearly the moment the Loot Project emerged, a community of builders has come together to develop a series of incredible projects and derivatives that move the ecosystem forward.
But what lays behind? What came before? What was this world like in the beginning, before the bags were shuffled?
Whether by chance, inevitability, or divine design, the data reveals a hidden scaffolding behind the game. Within the seemingly random Loot bags, there is a clear evidence of the original Order of the Loot Universe
Based on a statistical analysis of the item data and fundamental logic of the smart contract, our team at The Genesis Project has unearthed a breakthrough discovery — the "genesis state" of the Loot universe:
In the beginning, before the bags were shuffled, these Loot bags were carried by 2,540 original Adventurers — "Genesis Adventures" — organized across 16 Orders.
What is a Genesis Adventurer?
In the beginning, before the bags were shuffled, there were original Adventurers (Genesis Adventurers”) who carried perfect bags, geared up from head to toe in the gear of their Order. For centuries, there was peace among the 16 Orders. And then came the Great War... The Genesis Adventurers armored themselves from head to toe in their Order’s loot — and set out on an adventure to save the Lootverse. They never returned. Eons later, we have uncovered the lost battle grounds. Our mission — to re-organize each Order's loot back to its genesis state so that we can resurrect the Genesis Adventurers to defend and protect our Orders for the game ahead.
Read here for a detailed history of how we methodically arrived at this singular conclusion through data exploration, statistical modeling, and linguistic analysis.
